I was denied due to too much time going by since I had it, the system purged any records of me owning the bow.
That part I understand... to an extent.
Why wait so long to bring transmogrification into the game? I had no idea that a bow I used in Burning Crusade would once again be "useable" two full expansions later. If I had some way of seeing into the future, I would have never vendored it.
And because of that, Blizzard has told me (for lack of better words) "thats tough, go farm it".
Very upsetting considering the developer's short sighted views of this game. It seems its our fault that they didnt consider bringing transmogrification into the game sooner.
Oh well, I fully intend to get the same response Ghostcrawler and his cronies always give. "Its working as intended." Just thought I'd rant a bit.
