Applying Brilliant Mana Oil to ANY weapon will remove its enchantment upon log or zoning. This is an issue new to this morning, 08/15/06 and has been tested. The bug is 100% repeatable. Here are the steps:
1) Have any weapon with an enchantment. Benediction with +55 healing for example.
2) Apply Brilliant Mana Oil to Benediction
3) Logout or Zone
4) Log back in.
5) +55 Healing enchantment has been REMOVED.
DO NOT USE MANA OIL until this issue is fixed, guys.
Yes, this has been reported on the bug forums, but as no one reads those.. you guys need to know that this issue exists.
Please reproduce on PTR to back up my statement, and avoid ruining your guild's raids.
I assume poisons and sharpening stones would work the same way...
We have implemented a hotfix to all realms during today's maintenance which we had originally scheduled to release with patch 1.12 that changes the functionality of temporary item buffs (e.g. poisons, sharpening stones and shaman weapon buffs.) While we only just recently allowed the affects of these temporary item buffs to persist upon zoning and logging out, due to the extra demand it was placing on our hardware we've decided that for the time being, it was best to revert the change. We do anticipate this functionality will be available again once the anticipated hardware upgrades have been completed in preparation for the Burning Crusade's release.
It only appears to be mana oil... sharp stones did NOT remove the effect

So yah the stones seem ok. No word on poisons or shammy buffs though.
I am skeptical. They didn't say which sharpening stone they used. A standard +dam stone doesn't apply a player aura -- it modifies the weapon directly. If they tried using a crit stone or the like, then that's different, but until I see confirmation, I'd be very cautious.
