Certain Magic items from the Store that have been broken for a while or due to Supernatural, will work soon via a new patch. No ETA on the patch at this time.

UPDATE 10/01/12
Hello Simmers,

First of all, thank you for your patience while we were investigating these issues surrounding the magic items from The Sims 3 Store. We’ve identified fixes for several of the issues and will be including them in an upcoming Game Update. We’ll keep you updated on when to expect this. Below is a summary of what will be addressed with the new Game Update. There are a few additional functionalities that we’re still investigating that will not be addressed in the upcoming Game Update, but we’ll keep you posted with what we find.

• Lord Vladimir’s Magic Cauldron
o Sims can conjure components in the cauldron that will be needed for crafting within the Alchemy system
o Smelting of metals and cutting of gems has been fixed

• The Soothsayer’s Crystal Ball
o Telling fortunes and peering into the ball will give a job performance bonus if the Sim is a member of the Fortune Teller career

• Malleable Mimic Voodoo Doll
o You will be able to use the Voodoo Doll to curse other Sims and turn them into a zombie!
o You will be able to use the Voodoo Doll to bless zombie Sims and cure them of their affliction.
o You will be able to use a new interaction on the Voodoo Doll called “Transform!”. This is only available when a Voodoo Doll is bound to a Werewolf or a Fairy.

• Uber Toilet
o While not part of the Magic Set, the animations that were broken with Supernatural have now been fixed

We’ll keep you updated on when to expect these changes and thank you to everyone who helped the team track down these issues.
