Last night I was excited because I had been running COF for the last week to farm 3 armor pieces.  So I ran P1 after logging on which gave me the final tokens to get the pieces.  I shoot over to LA and visit the COF vender.  I am also on Vent listening to a buddy complain about an AC run he was on.  So I had my attention on him and buying my gear.  Well...I rushed the purchase and ended up buying gear I can't wear.  Oops.  Guess I am S.O.L.  Time to start farming COF again.

So lesson learned...

Read before you Click?

Thankfully, COF Tokens are EZ to get. Good Luck.

That sucks, at least cof is easy so hopefully you'll be back at the vendor in no time.

Silver lining - if you've got an alt that wears what you bought, and some fine stones, they can look good

Yeah...I had a similar thing happen.  I wanted to get the TA chest piece for my warrior, but I accidentally clicked on the shoulders instead when I was buying them.  It really sucks that Anet won't do restorations on items considering that it's such a commonplace thing in MMO's.  People aren't perfect.  Heck, even Aion would refund your AP if you bought the wrong piece of PvP gear.

Hey, at least you have the buyback function at vendors, that wasn't around in GW1.

I wish they would put the same functionality in place for collecters too though.

I don't really see how we can get a discussion out of this topic. It sucks that happened OP, but everyone has done that at some stage or another. This isn't really the place to come and tell everyone about it.

Except for that player who happens upon this thread prior to cashing in tokens and pays extra attention to what he is doing and doesn't accidentally purchase the wrong items.  

Appreciate you input.

Couldn't get this to work since the items were soul bound.

What?  You mean you were not driving on freeway in rush hour, talking on your cell and running the game and voice chat on your tablet when this happened?  Good luck learning how to really multi-task!

Yeah.  I guess after a day spending 1.5 hrs in traffic, juggling multiple work projects and entertaining a 2yr old after work I let my concentration slip after logging on to the game to unwind and have fun...and paid the price.  Won't make the same mistake.
