Ink Trader Exchange Change
10/10/2012 08:14 AMPosted by NethaeraAs I stated in another thread, what may seem simple may often be more complex than you might think. The game is very complex in nature with a lot of moving parts. A "simple" change can cause a chain reaction that has unintended (and often bad) results. We'd rather implement something as close to perfect (if not perfect) as we can than cause more unforeseen issues.
This was done for the WotLK to Cata update for the ink vendors. Its not exactly new territory. If it comes down to it, just add a vendor on a temporarily basis for ink of dreams to starlight ink conversion.
deleting my angry post.
change the ink trader you bastards.
If this is a non-angry post, I need to see the angry one :P

Since those are a crafting mat for the cards, ink prices will have a significant drop and cards will drop some as well. However, the drop in card price won't be severe due to the crafting mechanic.
If anything, herb prices or at least ink of dreams prices will go up. This change will be good if you pick your own herbs or sell inks on the AH.

We don't have an ETA on when this will be able to be applied as of yet, but will be continuing to work on it. It's not a cut and dry fix unfortunately. Again, we appreciate everyone's patience while we work this out.
Perhaps it would be better to just add a new ink trader who handles Starlight Ink and leave a Blackfallow Ink trader in play?
This would leave older zones of cata (odd to say that) viable farm land for all their other ink needs.
Good luck on your fix, Blizzard.
1) is the first entry in this thread the best place to monitor to find the latest information?
2) I just wanted to confirm that the original plan was that this will be a change to the current ink trader? I.e., I don't want to find out that there was a new npc in some closet in the Vale that I did not know about. I can just visit my regular dealer and if he is unchanged then the system has not changed?
Keeping the customer engaged is the 101 of complaint services.
I'm happy to see the Ink Trader when ever your ready and implore you to make sure things are tip top before releasing it.
Even should that be after the next Darkmoon Faire.
Keep up the good work,

Just make shoulder enchants and sell them to vendors.... If your like me, you probably have 3k or more dreams... I simply ran out of room. At 18g a pop its not a terrible trade off.
And please explain why this staff requires TWENTY daily tokens!? It's going to be useless in a matter of days anyway.The epic scribe staffs are BoA.
Which is completely rediculous. If they were gonna do this they shouldve made so that 1 staff is reactionary to your alt's class and spec. Making it so you have to make 1 staff for your feral druid and monk, 1 staff for your castors and 1 staff for you healers completely unneccesary. It sucks that its the same way heirlooms work in that you need to purchase every combination if youre gonna lvl multiple toons.
