MED was offered as one of the enticements of 4.2, it's why I did all the rep quests, I did not see any mention of this "bug"prior to the day of it's availability.
To say "Sorry for any confusion or inconvenience! " doesn't cut it.
No, it doesn't, although there has been no official comment on this issue. All the comments have come from GMs answering tickets and they have given a massive range of answers, from:
1) working as intended, we are fixing the tooltip
2) not working as intended we are fixing the stats
3) no you can't get a refund, but we'll give you back the old weapon you vendored.
4) no you can't get a refund on the mats but we'll make it BoE and give you back the enchanting mats.
I can understand how things like this, and the lack of off set DPS plate shoulders anywhere in FL, sneak through (and leaving one of the ret tier shoulders off one of the VoA bosses loot tables, out of curiosity is it a coincidence that it always seems to be ret usable stuff that messes up, or does it just seem that way as I play ret?)
What is annoying is the treatment of the customers in not accepting responsibility for their having messed up and offering a concise and complete explanation of what will happen, and the timescale for it happening, whether it is an outcome we will be happy with or not.
Personally I think we need a response by tomorrow morning before the servers are up as FL resets and we need to know if we are sitting on a worthless weapon and the shannox drops are as good for us as for our guildies still with i359 weapons and considerably more gold, or whether it is being fixed to work as intended and we should pass on the shannox weapons as they are a massive upgrade for our i359 wielding guildies compared to our 3.8s i365 weapon.
