    I don't want to spend ungodly amounts of time, silver and effort to make/buy b.i.s gear with "Failstackwhore432" or "EnergyMule123" permanently etched on it.

    The horrible Family names where already bad enough.

    Agreed, I dont understand this change at all. The only thing that makes sense is they want to force people to spend money to move all their 100 FS's into valks so they can only use them on the character they want to name gear on. Thats the ONLY explanation for this.

    why would they revert a change asked by the KR community ?

    it makes a lot more sense to have character name on pen item then the family name
    after all Fail Stack are character dependant and the luck too

    These guys are probably all playing WoW classic...

    We need a way to purge the name from item completely.

    Hum... incoming 150 and 200 blacksmith books for pearls?

    Perhaps they shud enable free transfer of stacks between characters, that would be cool.

    I thought selling PEN's on the market wiped the creator's name off of them so second hand PEN's didnt matter?

    I disagree with this proposal. It's nice to have the name of the person achieving PEN etched on the item.
    Besides, nobody is going to see the etched name except for you when you hover over your item.

    In real life, if you see names of the creator etched on nearly everything you buy.
    • On a painting, most artists leave a signature in the corner
    • On televisions, computers, and other electronics, you see the name of the company (LG, Samsung, Philips, etc..)
    If you really want a PEN item without someone else's name etched on it, you should be ready to PEN it yourself.

    Yes but the nature of failstacking means that peoples fodder names for enchanting alts will be on the item. People are not asking for the whole thing to go away just that its family name again.
