Milling bug issue
I understand this is about Milling data, but this is related to milling and doesn't seem to be covered anywhere else.
When I go to cast "mill herbs" on whats in my bags, it will cast, and I will get nothing. No pigment, or anything. I won't lose my herbs either, it's like the cast did nothing.
I just wanted to know if this is a common issue with the patch or should I be concerned?
Sometimes, if I move my herbs to a different bag or seperate them into stacks of 5 it will work, but in most cases it won't change the outcome.
As you all know it can be frustrating after spending 3 hours farming herbs, to find you can't mill a damn thing no mater what you do, then end up with a bag or two full of herbs you can't do anythign with untill they fix the bug. I would go ahead and farm more herbs for the next set of herbs, but I'm quickly runing out of bag, bank, and guild bank space. I'm honestly about to make a guild on a different charater and use the guild bank to store my stuff at this point.
You are not alone.
I've still not been able to work precisely what triggers the problem. For example, I milled the first 5 of a stack of 20 Mana Thistle fine, but the remainder of the stack then behaved as you describe. I could start milling Felweed, and it would mill fine. But when I returned to the Mana Thistle, nothing would happen.
I think many of us are having this same problem.
I've noticed that exiting World of Warcraft and logging back in seems to do the trick. It's not sufficient to reload the UI.
Ya this bug has been around since TBC with prospect. Actually i have never had the problem with old world ore or herbs, all though i have not tested it on enough herbs. Just log out and back in. I doubt the bug will be fixed any time soon.
As always, I'm typing this up from work, so I don't have any means to testfire and troubleshoot till I get home.
Last night and his morning I was able to trick mill through my herbs. It always seems to be the same stack in my bags... so I just made little stacks, and combined them into 5's untill I could wead-out the bugged herb I must have gathered.... See I was thinking maybe, it might just be one in the stack that is makeing the whole stack un-useable or a few in the stack. So I went through them and when I got down to one, I tossed it, and herbed again.
Even if that works for all, it still seems like a retarded solution, that only the BIG purple crayon people would think up. No offence to the purple crayon people.
Looks like doing the log thing might work, but I logged off over night and still had the same issue with the same stack.
The process I listed above worked (for a desperate man), and I just left the stack there and kept working... I'm past that level herbs, but I was reluctant to even put it on the AH incase someone else ended up having the same issue with that stack...
I had this same problem, but I had just wizzed up to the 300's in a mere few hours. I was having the problem with a stack of 15 felweed, which was making it impossible to mill any of the felweed in my bags. Annoyed, I assumed it was the same thing as with JC - after so many stacks of the same thing, you have to wait a certain amount of time to be able to use that particular kind again. So I did the ssame thing I do with JC. I mailed them to an alt, got a different kind of herb from my mailbox, and went through about a dozen or more stacks of something else before I tried the felweed again. first time it didn't work, so I did some more stacks, and after a while the felweed went through. I'm wondering if it's a certain amount of time you have to wait, or a certain number of other milling/crafting you have to do, though of course it's possible that it is, like you say, a bug waiting to be fixed.
