222 - unable to change source for a while now

i noticed that source changing for most items are working fine, but its still doesnt work for Celestial Ink.

it's automatically set to vendor conversation: ink of the sea and when i click on anything else as source, it doesnt change.
also there is an ink of the sea item under it , same when i try it on that.

Please post any error messages associated with the defect.

there is none.

    oh right. ink of the sea is gone.  i need to add a system to clear your vendor conversions, but in the meantime:

    /script GnomeWorksDB.vendorConverionRecipes = {}
    /reload

    should do it.

    i will probably add a toggle to ignore auction house supplies so that you can simply have it tell you to get 18 celestial inks and let you manually adjust your queue.

    as i think about it, i realize that manually adjusting the queue is probably being over-ridden by gw's auction scanner.  if you queue up your items, you should be able to simply hit "scan auctions" when at the auctionhouse and it will figure out "a cheap way" to get your reagents based on your recipes.  this can be done from an alt, so you don't need to necessarily take your toon to a major town.

    i say "a cheap way" because the logic is relatively simple (it calculates based on per unit prices rather than literally the cheapest combination of auctions to get your desired reagents).  i want to improve this to be literally the cheapest way possible, but that's for later.

    i didnt have any reagent for celestial ink, but vendor conversation for ink of the sea is no longer possible, i'd like to see how much violet pigment (the original reagent for celestial ink) i need.

    it would be a whole lot better if GW told me that i need 18 celestial ink total, and i could select milling as source, and i could see how much and which herbs i should buy from AH. ( im doing this manually atm )

    do you have any of the materials needed to mill celestial ink?  if you don't, it won't queue it up.

    the popup that lets you select the recipe source is actually in order to preference.  if "celestial ink" comes before "vendor conversion: celestial ink" then it is accurately prefering celestial ink, but either you haven't got the mats to make celestial ink (or mats to make the mats) or the price to buy the mats to make ink of the sea are cheaper on the auction house than those to make celestial ink.

    could this be what's going on here or do you have the proper pigments in your inventory?

    i've been getting similar reports from other users... i'm going to rework this system to make a bit more sense, i think.
