Recently, I completed the quest http://www.wowhead.com/quest=4083 which is a requirement for being able to learn how to smelt Dark Iron Bars. Once I completed the quest, the NPC never gave me the option to learn the spell. Whenever I go back, I still have no option.
I did put in a ticket and the GM told me that this was a known bug. However, searching this form and the known bug list and I did not see it listed. Just want to bring it up because I would love to make my Sulfurion Hammer soon!
I had put a ticket in to the GM's last Tuesday about this, i had retook up mining and it doesn't give me the option to relearn dark iron smelting. And the chalice isn't next to him either to put the items into.
All i was advised by the GM they would forwarded it on to their bug report team.
Haven't heard of anything since, and just check and found that I still cannot relearn Dark Iron Smelting.
After 4 attempts to talk to someone at blizzard about this i finally got (after the normal your doing it wrong and delete your WTF folder)
"I'd like to apologize for the confusion. The bug was listed under a different category and that was the reason it wasn't found. I've added your information to the bug report that I was able to find for issues with not getting the spell for smelting Dark Iron Ore. Hopefully the issue will be resolved shortly but I have no estimated time for being fixed. "
This was on Oct 29th 2012.
Add my name to the list of folks that have gotten the run around on this. I'm sure this isn't a 'high' priority for THEM... but for those of us that need dark iron bars it kinda is.
here is what I got after asking for the quest items to be returned and the quest cleared from my completed since apparently its a 'known' bug.
Thanks for contacting Blizzard Entertainment, Game Master (editted) here to
basically I read it as its broken, and we dont care.
How do they manage to break something that has worked for so long in a dungeon that does not appear to have changed with MoP????
Not everyone wants it, but those who enjoy mining and crafting weapons and special items certainly do want to have it.
I can't make weapons like the Dark Iron Rifle because I can't learn the skill now, no one in the guild has it, and anyone on the realm that has it wants a ridiculous amount of gold to be bothered with it.
They already yanked a lot of classic plate recipes it seems, which used dark iron, but there are still some nice ones and the legendary items that require it as well.
Blizz is so worried about appearances, so after every ticket, you get a survey. You'd think that the tickets would be a pretty good indication of where the issues reside and what needs fixing.
Things like this, that persist in the game after so many years, are why the number of players has dropped significantly and why even those of us who have been playing since the beginning are beginning to lose patience.
It's just annoying and anyone saying otherwise is simply "talkin' out their !@#$" LOL
I had the same problem but I just went to BRD again and glom'rel finally gave me the chat option that taught me the skill.
I confirm that as of 12/12/12 in patch 5.1.0a the quest is working again (you do not need to turn in materials again if you had already completed the quest)
