Is when I have fat fingers

The whole "soulbound" concept is a harsh mistress.

One click of the mouse, and ding, no refunds, no exchanges. Buyer Beware.

And it really sucks if the thing you intended to click on costs 3 awards, which can only be earned at a rate of one per day.

And even worse if there's an achievement that's going to be made accessible in the next patch (any tuesday now), and you're on schedule to be ready for that achievement the moment it opens up.

But only if you DONT FAT FINGER THE DAMN RECIPE AND BLOW THREE DALARAN COOKING AWARDS ON A STUPID RECIPE YOU ALREADY KNOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oye Vey!

So I opened a ticket.

I hope its a slam dunk. I mean, there's a soulbound recipe in my bag that I'm unable to do anything with other than DESTROY. I can't learn it since I already know it. Vendors aren't interested in giving me silvers for it. I can't mail it to the uber gf since its soulbound. And, not mere coincidence, there's a recipe that costs the same, is not yet learned by me, and is required for Chef Amava, and sits directly next to the incorrectly purchased duplicate recipe in the vendor's display window.

Unless the GM is evil and out to get me, I'd think he'll see that this is a case of fat fingers and will either give me my 3 awards back, or give me the recipe I was trying to buy.

So the first-level GM guy talked to me, seemed to agree that I'm an honest chap with a clicking problem.

He told me not to fiddle with the ticket in any way shape or form, and escalated to a "Character Specialist".

My bet is that the Character Specialist will actually get to the ticket AFTER I've already earned enough Dalaran's to buy the two outstanding recipes, PLUS the one I accidentally didn't buy today.

/doh

My only wish is that they make the Chef title come with a special hat. Whitemane's Chappeau is the closest thing to a chef's hat that I know of, but it's red.

Good luck!

And great idea with the chef hat. That would be amazing. :)

Yah I bought a JC recipe that I already had and blew 3 tokens, so I opened a GM ticket, admitted my moronacy and since I still had it in my inv, they escalated the ticket and by the next day I had my tokens back.

I lavish praise on the GMs in my tickets, I'm hoping that makes me less annoying to deal with amongst all the crap.

There are a couple of other hats with that model:

Maybe a Gossamer Headpiece ?
