  • [Confirmed] Mekansm/pipe/orchid autocomplete bug

    Hello,

    Summary:
    If you have one branch in your inventory and you click to buy a full mekansm from the shop you don't get the full mekansm -
    you get a headdress (where the branch goes), a chainmail, and the buckler and mekansm recipes.

    Repro steps:
    Have enough gold for mekansm
    Get one branch
    Click to buy the whole mekansm

    Result:
    You don't get the whole mekansm

    Expected:
    You get the whole mekansm

    you most likely dropped the branch due to having a full inventory.
    Make sure to read the Forum Rules as well as the stickied Threads of the Forum Section you are posting in.

      No, that was not the case. Match ID: 162515363
      I play necrolyte.
      I try to buy the mekansm at 10:55 game time.

      But that doesn't really matter, cause you can reproduce it easily:
      1) Make a game
      2) Get gold for mekansm
      3) buy one branch (have nothing else in your inventory if you want to be sure...)
      4) click to buy the mekansm - it doesn't work.

        Confirmed.

        It happened to me many times and I just reproduced it and it does not buy the mek. You need to manually buy another branch. It uses the 1 branch in your inventory to make the headdress and gives you the recipes and chainmail, but does not auto-buy the branch to complete Mek.

          I just tested with other items which require two lesser items, both of which require the same item:
          Orchid malevolence:
          If you have one sage mask/quarterstaff/robe of the magi it will buy all other items except the other required sage mask/quarterstaff/robe of the magi.
          So it's broken for orchid as well.

          Pipe of insight:
          The same thing with the rings of regeneration (since both hood of defiance and headdress require them):
          If you have one or two rings of regeneration, and ring of health, it completes the hood of defiance (in both cases, even with only one ring of regeneration), but it doesn't buy the additional one for
          the headdress, so it's broken for the Pipe of insight as well.

          So it's bugged for every item that follows this pattern.

              I can confirm this but if you try to autocomplete mek (or any other item that is bugged) again it will buy the branch and build your mek (you don't have to buy the branch manually).

                how is this a bug? why would it buy the complete item if you already have one/two/three components?

                  When you click the complete mek icon it does not buy the rest of the components, and it should.

                    That's not the idea here, of course it should not buy a complete, separate item.
                    It should use the pieces you already have - but it doesn't work properly in the cases that I've described.

                    My guess is that (for example in the mekansm case) it checks to see if you have the items for headdress and buckler, and then proceeds to complete headdress and buckler.
                    Since you have one branch in your inventory you can complete either headdress or buckler,
                    but the algorithm doesn't appear to take into account that the branch will be missing after the headdress is completed.

                    Anyway, it should be fixed.

                      i can confirm this, or at least something similar. it seems from time to time mek has trouble completing itself. probably because it has more than 6 required items

                          Do things like Pipe do this as well?
                          I don't bite.
