Star of Wraeclast recipe fails to carry anoint from onyx; UNSHAPED despite shaped ingredients

Tested with:
(shaped ruby ring)
(lv 20 corrupted lightning warp)
(shaped onyx amulet)

Expected a shaped Star of Wraeclast, but the vendor's result was a normal unshaped Star of Wraeclast. Not even the trash anointment carried over.




Personally I would have expected the anointment to also follow as expected behavior, but getting an unshaped unique amulet is even worse.

It is not a bug, but i would say it may be good to have recipe update for shaper part.

For anointment it seem it is quite different from talisman upgrade so i don't think it had need to update the recipe to have anointment carry over to another item

Sure, I agree with your view that having a recipe update for shaper/elder items would be nice especially given the release of items like Eternity Shroud.

But I disagree with your assessment of this as a bug. A bug is something that's an error/flaw/failure/fault that brings about an unexpected result. Given that other recipes exist for shaper/elder items, I didn't think it was too far-fetched to assume it also applied for this rather old recipe.

They did do an update for this in 3.3 for Loreweave and other items:
"Updated the Loreweave, Kingmaker, and The Taming vendor recipes to give Shaper and Elder results if all the inputs were Shaper or Elder items. Elder/Shaper Breach items now also maintain their status if they are transformed with a Blessing."

My question is why Star of Wraeclast has been excluded. Even this post http://www.pathofexile.com/forum/view-thread/2120894/page/1#p15416580 from March 2018 shows that even ingredients without anointments don't upgrade to a shaped version, so this is a problem that has gone unaddressed for a good 1.5 years.

As for your other point, implicit carrying has had a place in vendor recipes, like with "item sells for much more to vendors". Why it shouldn't be the same for anointments is puzzling to me.

++ Thanks to @Rhys for helping the images show up in the original post.

Can GGG have their final say to give the Star a Shaper recipe or not?

Yeah, we should allow it
