Gray name?

Postby Lysi » October 9th, 2012, 12:48 am

There's a Sapphire Cub on the AH, battle pet section. But the name is gray, like vendor trash. Why?

I just caged mine and it appears it's of poor quality. Kind of surprising, considering the mats it takes to make it. I would have thought it would be at least uncommon.

I guess the text means it will usually be gray. Kind of sad really, couldn't it at least be white text? I feel so bad for the little guy!

"While each cub is crafted in the same fashion, tiny imperfections in the gemstones create a unique personality when imbued with life. They are, however, always playful and friendly."

I logged into the WarcraftPets horde guild and talked to everyone there a few days ago including Doob, the community feels as if this may just be a bug. I suggest bringing up a thread with Blizzard, nobody has thus far found anything above poor quality that I've found.

Crafted pets do not boast a variable Rarity. If one Sapphire Cub is Uncommon quality, all Sapphire Cubs will be Uncommon quality

A thought just occurred to me: It is now possible to critically craft items in the game's crafting system. Do you think it's possible to crit-craft a Sapphire Cub? Such a pet might boast an increased rarity.

Just a thought.

Found a single post in the bug report forum

http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/6794320855

I hope they fix this and I hope they fix ones people already have, not just how it crafts

One totally amazing person just gave me a sapphire cub, but it is gray. I don't mind so much. It's an amazing gift, but I wanted to find out if other sapphire cubs would be gray. So I bought one on the AH and when I learned it, it was white. So it looks like it could possibly be random what rarity pet you actually learn from the sapphire cub item?

If you have one that isn't blue, I'd go ahead and put in a ticket just to see what they say. It seems like they should all be blue, but I've never seen an official response.
