    I don't know which patch, 43 or 44, as I was out of town last week and didn't start playing again till Sunday, but something was done to crafting. Here's the issue.

    When I use the Make Last or pick a specific item from the tinkering menu, it takes MUCH longer for the menu to pop up telling me I have created the item, failed the item, or it's exceptional. What, specifically was done, and why, to make it so the menu pops up almost double what it used to? (1.75 second delay was plenty before, now I'm over 3 seconds, and it still sometimes doesn't pop the menu up)

    Thanks!

    From Patch 43:

    This, fortunately, is still under review. The patch was put in given that each time an ítem is crafted a big strain is put on the server.

    We are still reviewing the crafting times. The time currently matches the sound effect timers for each skill. We are open to reviewing these going forward, but for now they match the audio cue's linked to each skill.

    Just put a slightly longer pause in your macro and its all good. I have been steadily training smith and carpenter with no issues (other than less material being left over when fails happen)

    I like it better like this. . . It didn't 'feel' right before.

    Actually put a wait for gump at the end and no pause is necessary. Be sure to change the time out on the gump to 5s in case you break your tool, and you're golden.

    I generally cut the timeout to 3s, but same deal as Pirul's suggestion. Right click the Wait for Gump step immediately after the tool use step and Edit Timeout.
    Is it just me or is it weird there's no 'action' sound for Tinkering? Just 5s of...........

    I notice that with wait for gump it gets stuck sometimes and after the gump it restarts the macro instead of continuing down (lift item, drop relative location) or (double click item, target by type) etc.

    Since i switched to timers its been a lot smoother for me. Maybe i am just bad at razor :D

    +1. I have a macro for "Make Last" for each crafting type, and I just manually set the pause for each. Wait For Gump never works well for me, but I too may just be a Razor novice.

    I learned early on that using the Wait For Gump caused my mining macro to hang when my tinker tools wore out. I didn't mess with the timeout though as I was not aware that could be done. So I switched to timers and it's working just fine.

    I was just curious about the change because when I write a macro, I always think about making it as fast as possible. It's the programmer in me that comes out. With this added delay, I don't get as much ore per hour now!

    The Blacksmithing wait time after making an item needs to be set in line with Tinkering and Tailoring. It pops the gump back up too quickly.

    I think Tela mentioned that a clean up is just around the corner. Probably after he comes back from his honey moon. Patience young one.
