    Hi, the purpose of this guide is to accumulate the most efficient crafting macros for people who have fully geared their crafting classes. Some of these macros require max melds and a supra. My priorities, in order of importance are
    1. 100% HQ (Ignoring Byregot's Blessing on a poor condition)
    2. Able to be completed with Normal Quality Materials
    3. Able to be completed with only one macro (15 steps maximum)
    4. Requires <369 CP (Attainable with only a Stone Soup)
    5. Requirements are attainable without Food
    6. Completed as fast as possible

    Macros that satisfy the first three conditions I will call 'Industrial'

    Comfort zone can be replaced with extra CP, and likewise for some macros you can reduce the CP requirement by using Comfort zone. Keep in mind the macro will not 100% if Byregot's Blessing hits a Poor Condition. If you are concerned about this, follow the macro manually and make modifications as necessary.

    It would be great to get something like this for people who haven't hit the max crafting yet. It might be selfish because I'm so bad at HQing items that I have to buy HQ items off the Market Board to complete the class quests.

    On a personal level my crafting levels are in my sig, so I have most of the cross class skills.

    It's why I've stopped doing the Ixal quests because I can't HQ stuff anymore :(

    Well you need more cross class skills, focus on getting CUL to 37, and then CRP to 50. Leveling them all at once is a bad idea if you want to make HQ things.

    In addition Macros are a crutch, if you rely on them too much you will be screwed if a hard recipie shows up. I don't think you should use macros unless you have finished at least two artisan weapons, just so you can get the experience in.

    Maybe at some point, I'll write up a crafting guide for beginners...
    Even before acquiring enough cross class skills, there are ways for people to HQ stuff...
    I still remember my very early crafting days using "Observe" to bait for "Good" condition to make HQ 40 durab items...

    I gotta admit the Ixali's "Isolator Component" is a pretty tough one to make for most people. It requires over 1500 quality points. I think that item really needs sufficient stats and cross class skills to make HQ. Refrabrication Component has a pretty harsh requirement on CP. For those who don't have enough stats, they'll need to resort to Hasty Touch (CUL 15). To me, these items actually added a slight bit more fun to make. I wonder if it gets any harder later.

    Jinzuku
    , looks like you have everything near lvl 30. I think it's about time for you to hand in some Tradecraft leves for Carpenter to get Byregot soon. It'll make a difference. The leves should get you up pretty quickly between lvl 30 to 50.

    I was advised to get CUL to 37 by someone so I spent time yesterday trying to do that. (didn't get there but getting closer). After I've gotten CUL to 37, I will work on getting Carpenter to 50. Leve quests are great, assuming I have the mats to actually create the item.

    That's awesome I will be sure to take a look at it :)

    For the minimum requirement variant of Spicy Tomato Relish, I've found that I need a <wait.3> after the Master's Mend II, not a <wait.2> - otherwise, with even moderate lag, the Comfort Zone fails to execute, and I run out of CP. Otherwise, the rotation is very good, usually producing HQ>90%! (Using HQ Cinnamon, Table Salt, and Dark Vinegar.)

    Stats: Craftsmanship 392, Control 372, CP 392.

    Bump, added an 80 durability 1*/2* macro. Very low CP requirement! (335 CP) and only 14 steps (saves time!)

    Also one for 40 durability once you get max melded. I'm not going to put it up there because it is not 'perfect', but it's nice and easy and it uses Master's Mend so I don't need to switch cross class skills. Also only 14 steps because I'm a big fan of time savers

    Wait, I think you need one more Careful Syn II there to finish the craft...

    Well, when u said 335 CP, I thought it really would be 335.. but you actually need a Bouillabaisse HQ there. The good thing about this rotation is that it's fast, and need only 1 button of 15 lines. But it requires quite a lot of stats. It's not for fresh crafters or 1 star crafters.... For fresh 1 star crafters, they need 3 strokes to finish the synthesis of a 2 star 80 durab.

    Oh it's a little unclear, the 335 Cp one is in the OP. The one in my most recent reply is the 40 durability macro I use. I'll make it more clear

    I didn't like the idea of using Bouillabaisse HQ because I prefer to save them all for my 3 star and 4 star crafting. Those Rothlyt Oysters & Razor Clams are pretty expensive here on my server.

    However, I like your idea of "fast macro crafting" with a single button of max 15 lines in the macro. The difficulty in this is obviously not how to maximize stats for quality, but really about how to squeeze in 15 actions that give rise to maximum quality + completion. This is particularly challenging for 2 star 80 durab items. I took your idea, and modified the macro into one that I would use.

    Here's my version of the macro, and it doesn't need to eat Bouillabaisse. In fact, I don't need to eat any food, but I need an initial quality of about 400 to hit 100% HQ, so I need to use 1 HQ mat:


    Caimie's version of 1-touch macro for 2 star 80 durab

    My stats:
    415 craftmanship (you don't need that high)
    400 control
    352 CP (but just need 347 CP here)

    *Need 1 HQ mat to start with about 300 quality.

    /ac "Ingenuity II" <wait.2>
    /ac "Careful Synthesis II" <wait.4>
    /ac "Careful Synthesis II"


    (use Leb's one below! It is better!)

    Sadly, I have to place the Ingen II down there to cover the 2 CS II. If I put it above Innov, it'll cover the Byregot, but it falls off before the last CS II. This rotation actually leaves 20 durab left, so there's plenty of room to hit more CSII, but there's not enough lines in the macro. The good thing about this macro is that you really only need 347 CP, and don't need to eat any kind of food. Yet, you have to use 1 HQ mat to fill up about 400 quality.

    It's just a very basic rotation and far from optimized, but it works QUICK as you suggested. I tried it 30 times on food today, and it's pretty good... failed me only once due to lag. So I modified the time on there to reduce lag-induced NQ. I also removed all the <me>. I found them unnecessary.

    Doesn't work! It has to fit within 15 lines to quality as "1 button macro", which is what we're discussing here. If I can use 2 buttons, it'd be incredibly easy.

    For the 1 button macro for 1 star 40 durab & 2 star 40 durab, there's no doubt the ultimate rotation is:

    This is surely the ultimate rotation for anything 40 durab without the need to eat any CP food. I've discussed this with every single expert I know.

    Yours is better than mine! This one works best!

    Yea! This one is truly the best! *DOUBLE LIKE*!
    No food needed! Can start from zero quality!
    1-button, super short rotation, and it's 100% HQ!!! Absolute winner!

    That rotation doesn't 100% for 2*s unless you use HQ mats. That's why you need an advanced touch instead of a standard touch.

    In order for you to 100% with 1* you need >370 control which basically places you as a 3* crafter. I would say it's much harder to get 370 control than 367 CP, so the industrial one favors the CP one.

    Technically speaking HQ mats are cheaper than bouillabaisse, but the only time I'm going to be doing 1/2* 40 durability crafts is when I am making the precursors for 4*s, so I'll be drinking a bouillabaisse in the first place, and I can shave 2 seconds off of the macro

    You're right. For 2*, I'd still use the same rotation but click it manually to make any kind of on the spot changes. I also use a Dagger Soup if I want to be absolutely sure getting 100%.

    Alternatively, a cheaper CP food that allows me to substitute a Basic Touch with a Standard Touch in the macro would be sufficient to make the 2* item 100% HQ. I don't like to waste Bouillabaisse HQ, and prefer to save Bouillabaisse for 3 & 4 star.

    Hmm... I've been reading around and a big concern of mine is crafting bots.

    I'm going to ask you all to keep the spicy tomato relish macro contained in this forum. It probably is the best macro out there for relish by far.

    The reason why I'm asking this is because the 2000 Quality start spicy tomato relish macro is very well known and popular, but also is one of the most widely botted macro used in the market. If someone buys a ton of HQ Tomatoes and outputs many many mastercraft for sale it is highly likely that they are botted.

    Yes there are a lot of clean mastercraft, however I find it unlikely that people are willing to make 3+ mastercraft a day. That's on average 200 Spicy Tomato relish a day, or 5 hours of crafting.
