Can someone confirm whether this was like this on the 4.0.3a PTR and/or the Cata beta? Or did it come out of the blue? Given a few of the posts already, it appears to have been a known change... I suspected this change may be coming and asked someone on the Cata beta yesterday, and he told me Jessica Sellers was still accepting Ink of the Sea trade ins..... I'm not a fan of getting blindsided.

I agree. Not only that, but I've sent this question to the Queue before and it went unanswered. In fact, every source of info I've checked has made no mention of this change, as if it was all designed to screw over my profits...It's a conspiracy, I tell you!

There was no PTR on 4.0.3a.Yes, I know what you are thinking now "But good sir, there WAS ptr up for this patch heres link to this fine article about it".Actually, it wasnt PTR in PTR sense. It was more of "sneak peek" and to get devs some numbers they might tweak or fix for next 2 weeks. I mean honestly, it was up for week. No "major" bugfixes are done in week, maybe small hotfixes. I dont even think there was patch for this PTR build AT ALL.They did it because they felt need they had to put it to "ptr phase" before going live.Why it wasnt PTR then you might ask?First of all, there was no feedback tool. You know, the most important part of the PTR and all that. It really felt that "this is final but we are gonna put it thro PTR phase anyway lets rely on all the data we got from beta".And even if there was feedback for this change, I doubt anyone would actually notice since they didnt want to be stuck in dalaran and just go to old world asap.

This change has been on the beta since August and was on the 4.0.3a on the PTR for the short time it was up. There's been a discussion thread on the "Just my two copper" Inscription forum about this change for a long time.I want to thank Basil not spilling the beans on this one until it was too late. This is going to make me a ton of money as I'm continually buying/milling all the low level herbs and driving the prices even higher. Most of my competition isn't even posting these glyphs right now because they can't get enough supply. It's too bad everyone is getting the ability to fly in two weeks or it would be even better.

I agree. Glad Basil didn't blast in in everyones face, too.
