You probably should send them back. TAs were never meant to be a decent source for reactants. The amount of effort put in to getting one should've been enough of a hint. They were only meant to provide good recipes for people to learn and the opportunity to have some time as the person to do business with for one item or another.

I play at odd times, too. I dont' see myself getting to some of those zones anytime soon, so getting a colossal reactant is kinda moot. There's new gear coming in april that will be close enough in stats.

With a limited number of recipes, I'd never consider the TAs a "decent" source of reactants.  For me, they were the only source.  Eventually the recipes will run out and then the TAs turn into a house decoration, nothing more.  With seven level 90 tradeskillers working daily, I didn't have a problem with getting one every couple weeks.  The fact that they appear to have dried up completely, however, does bother me.  As for the notion that I can always make things for other people, in all this time, I've made a total of one item for someone else.  Too many cooks, not enough broth.

I've decided I'll continue doing the missions until the recipes currently in progress are complete, and then no more.  There is no point in it for me.

As for the new gear coming out, I really have no expectation of seeing that stuff, either.  If I can't afford/obtain Drunder level gear, what expectations should I have in being able to obtain the newer, better gear?

Once all the recipes are researched, you can still keep doing the daily quest and get the rewards. Whether you want to do that is a completely different thing SMILEY

I went for 47 days without a reactant, not to mention the crafters that have not received one at all from day one.  RNG can be really fickle and frustrating.
