Can't purchase AAs?

    Image below of my AA window on 90 Necro Gold account.

    It won't let me purchase the next rank in Forage even though I meet all the requirements and have enough AA. There are several others grayed out that I want to purchase, most of which show an expansion I don't have, so that would be understandable. But I used Forage as an example because it's not tied to any expansion and still won't let me purchase.

    Is there something I'm just not understanding?

    If I had to guess, it is actually tied to an expansion but doesn't say so.
  3. MasterMagnus The Oracle of AllHigh

    I have 21 of 24 expansions. It's an old account that existed before AAs, and so reverts to silver when I let it lapse (although it is now Gold).

    I have other AAs that it won't let me purchase that are from expansions I have.

    I really doubt Forage is classified as belonging to one of the last three expansions. :confused:

    Don’t think you are high enough lv to get more then one rank. Also not being Subscribed can prevent you from buying some AAs even if you own the Expansion.

    I am level 90 and the Next Rank requirement says level 60.

    Do you feel the Next Rank requirement is a misprint? I suppose that's possible. They recently made a pass over to fix the 'next rank' text.

    *edit* and I'm GOLD

    prolly a dumb question but did you try logging out completely and back in .. might be a bug

    I had Auto-grant on, so I turned it off (thinking that was the problem). Logged out, logged back in, brought up my window and took that screenshot.

    well I just logged in my 96 SK gold access and was able to purchase not only the 1st rank but also the next 2 ranks with no problem.. so either there is a lvl req inbetween 91 to 95 or you are not gold access maybe your sub ran out ? is all i can think of sorry mate.. if i have time and feel like it i'll log in my 91 bard and grab him a few aa's rq and test it on him

    OK. Time for me to earn 4 more AA and get another screen shot with all the details of the line I wanted to finish, instead of Forage as an example.

    On your screenshot, "autogrant enable" shows red, indicating that the client thinks (or thought at the time) you are NOT gold.
    That explains why you can not spend any AAs, as you are over the silver cap of 1k assigned AAs.
    (on a gold account, that label shows green - indicating you can set it)

    This sometimes happens if you have, for example, logged on a non-gold account in addition to the gold one on the same machine (though mostly the gold takes precedence).
    If can also happen, temporarily, when the client looses the connection to the chat-server/market place (chat-queuing problem that EQ has).
    Make sure next time that "all access days left" in the inventory window is greater zero when you make the next screenshots.

    There are several like this - Paladins "Lay on Hands" says level 51 for the next rank - 4 aa's to purchase - the 'expansion' its tied to is "Everquest" but you simply can't purchase it right now.

    Your doubt is why you failed.

    Foraging 2-11 are EOK AAs. Buy that expansion and then you can purchase this AA.

    lol that explains why my 96 SK could by ranks 2 and 3 it has EoK :p
    you would think it would say what expansion it was from like all the others do instead of saying racial innate .
  14. Gialana Augur

    According to, Foraging rank 2 and higher was introduced in EoK, so I expect you need to own that expansion to purchase, even though the AA doesn't specifically group it with EoK.
  15. Darchon_Xegony Augur

    Yea one would imagine. But I would imagine somehow those Racial Innate or Tradeskill flags somewhere in the inner workings prevent them rom being bought with autogrants. Whereas general expansion flags can be awarded through autogrants.
  16. CatsPaws Just use plain English.

    We believe this was one of the targets of the recent racial skills fixed that went in - if anyone is still struggling with this please comment and we can revisit.

    Perhaps this is you?
    Side note: the auto grant shows red when it is off on paid or free.

    Thank you Darchon, and Zamiam.

    Forage was the only issue after all. Re-checked the others I wanted from Archetype and Class and they are recent expansion specific.

    It's probably just an oversight, they did make the recent pass to tidy up the Next Rank tab.

    That being said, I'm not feeling the urgency to buy an expansion I'm too low level for and came in too late to get claims from it.
  18. Zamiam Augur

    gotta give credit where credit is due .. it was all Darchon ... glad he was able to help you .. and you are right I wouldnt spend the money on current expansion just yet either ..
