    Has anone experimented with this concept at all yet? I wonder if its possible to set up a "mass production" macro or something.

    Anyone have any input?

    Not really on mass production.... well you could do something like this:

    /ac "Careful Synthesis" <me>
    /wait 9
    /ac "Careful Synthesis" <me>
    /wait 9
    /ac "Careful Synthesis" <me>
    /wait 9
    /ac "Careful Synthesis" <me>
    /wait 9
    /ac "Careful Synthesis" <me>
    /wait 9
    /ac "Careful Synthesis" <me>
    /wait 9
    /ac "Careful Synthesis" <me>
    /wait 9
    /ac "Careful Synthesis" <me>
    /wait 9
    /ac "Careful Synthesis" <me>
    /wait 9
    /ac "Careful Synthesis" <me>
    /echo "Crafting macro done"



    20 lines is your limit. As long as Careful Synthesis is enough Progress to complete the synth, and 9 seconds is enough time for you to click the Crafting Log's Synthesize button between each synth, then this would craft 10 items for you with 1% Quality. Could do it with Standard Synthesis, but there'd occasionally be a failure, where it'd just sit and wait until the next cycle picked up. Important to note that I haven't tested the timing on this, so 9 may be too long or too short.

    Obviously you could mix in other abilities with 3 second waits between them to get more quality on individual synths or if you needed two Synthesis steps to reach 100% progress, but would have fewer items crafted per macro use. You'd only need 3 second waits between steps on the same item.

    Or you could find a good rotation for a 40 durability volume material you need and have the macro dedicated to just one item at a time and press Synthesize and then the macro each time you want to craft one. <--- I have done this making yarn & cloth, leather, ingots, etc.

    The macro changes a lot as I get new abilities or gear that changes how many steps I need for full progress, or enough CP for extra Touches, etc. I do occasionally miss an Exceptional status on the item where the macro uses a buff or progress on that step for instance, but on a 40 durability item, not very often, or I would have missed it no matter what because it occurred when the item was at 10% on my last Synthesis step, etc. It winds up being pretty efficient on Quality, but not always as efficient as crafting each step manually.


    Depending on your level/CP this could be something like:

    /ac "Standard Synthesis" <me>
    /wait 3
    /ac "Steady Hand" <me>
    /wait 3
    /ac "Standard Touch" <me>
    /wait 3
    /ac "Standard Touch" <me>
    /wait 3
    /ac "Standard Touch" <me>
    /wait 3
    /ac "Master's Mend" <me>
    /wait 3
    /ac "Basic Touch" <me>
    /wait 3
    /ac "Careful Synthesis" <me>





    Whatever sequence of abilities happens to work best. Its too long in this case for you to put a long wait, make a quick click in the crafting log to start another, and let the macro do a 2nd item the same way.

    Hmm, I've been wondering, what's "CP" stand for?

    Honestly I think trying to automate crafting is a bad idea unless you intend to make simple items over and over again. As an Armorer I made Iron Ingots constantly as HQ items, but I often had to adapt my plans if I failed to increase progress. If all variables such as this could be taken into account, and a complex macro formed, then I suppose brewing a cup of tea whilst crafting could work in my favour. :D. I'll be sure to test this stuff out, as well!
