WotLK - Affliction Warlock - BiB Keeps recommending an item I don't have

It says it all in the subject. BiB keeps recommending I equip “Staff of the Purposeful Mendicant” which I don’t have.

Here is my import string:

For now I’m going to manually exclude that item. Is there an incorrect item ID in the database?

It’s possible that something got out of sync. Try the steps in this post, but you can skip the step to “activate each of your specs once” because WotLK does not support explicit specs like retail WoW.

Let me know if that resolves the issue. If not, we’ll take a closer look.

I followed the steps, but it did not resolve the issue. I’m still getting the “Staff of the Purposeful Mendicant” recommended. I’ve excluded it and things appear to be working.
I’ve never looted that staff before and I definitely do not have it in my bank or bags.

Strange… that string that you posted above definitely has that item in the list, so the in-game addon is seeing that item from somewhere…

Your equipped gear and bags are scanned each time you export and don’t store/save it anywhere, so the only place that an item could potentially hang on unexpectedly is your bank… but we scan your bank each time you open it, so leaving it open for a second or two should be enough to completely refresh bank data as well.

You could try deleting your addon settings as a last measure – that would definitively get rid of any stored item data. Note that you would have to reset any options in the AMR addon after doing so. To do this, first completely exit and close WoW, then go to a folder like the following on your computer:

C:\Program Files (x86)\World of Warcraft\_classic_\WTF\Account\YOURACCOUNT\SavedVariables

You should see a AskMrRobotClassic.lua file in there, and perhaps AskMrRobotClassic.lua.bak. Delete both of those files.

Now start up the game and export your character again – it should have everything currently on you, but nothing in your bank. Now go to the bank and open it for a few seconds, then export again. It should now have all your bank items available as well. Let me know if that takes care of it.
