This is the official feedback thread for multi-crafting. Specific feedback that the team is looking for includes the following:
  • Which crafting stations did you check out?
  • Which features did you perform at the crafting station? Creation/refining/deconstruction/etc.
  • Was it clear how to perform the batch crafts?
  • Which UI were you using – keyboard/mouse or gamepad mode?
  • Do you have any other general feedback?

    I love that it crafts them all in one go, rather than even the addon function that auto-crafted them one at a time. It is really nice to be able to ask for 200 potions and have them immediately.

    As code asked, it would be nice to be able to enter a value rather than clicking though.

    I am on a keyboard, and was testing on an alchemy station in my house.

    This one is curious, and not able to be in Tamriel right now.

    With refining materials do you get all the stones and yellow materials in on go at the end?

    Also if there is no number you can type in then, for materials, this one would prefer to continue to use Multicraft.

    Pressing a button 100 times before refining a stack of wood is not possible, actually not physically possible without pain.

    A refine all button would be most helpful and very welcome for all this one thinks.

    There is a "Max" button that will set the number to the maximum possible. So if you're just refining and you have a Craft Bag, that's fine.

    If I'm making potions, I don't want to use all 4000 flowers I have. I only make as much as I need for the next few days because potions take up precious inventory space. Multi-crafting in an intermediate quantity is not a good experience right now.

    Brevity: PTS tested (5.1.0); All stations; All features (craft, refine, and deconstruct); UI was easy to use, and mostly clear (see below); Used KB and mouse UI.

    Loved it!

    First, a quick Pro-Tip, for others viewing this thread:
    Mouse over the Multi-craft number, and hold <shift> + scroll-wheel forward.
    This will increment the Multi-craft number 10 at a time. ;)
    (Note: This also works with other incremental number fields in the game, such as the "Buy Multiple" option on vendors, and when applying CP points.)

    That said, I agree with the above posters.
    ZOS, please add the ability to type a specific number into the field.

    Additional recommendations for the Multi-crafting UI:

    Alchemy and Provisioning stations:
    Crafting UI:
    Please add a small, auto-populated, description above the incremental number field (visible priority #1), which lists the actual number of individual items that will be crafted. Something like "Brew (50) potions".

    Why is this needed?: Alchemy and Provisioning each have passives that craft up to 4 servings per craft.
    (Ease of reference: Alchemy has the "Chemistry" passive; Provisioning has the "Chef" and "Brewer" passives.)

    Accidentally, and instantly, burning through 50x the mats needed, while only crafting 50 potions (vs the 200 you thought you were crafting) would be quite painful to many, and would likely result in an increase it item restore requests through CS.
    "An ounce of prevention", and all that. ;)

    Blacksmith, Clothier, Woodworking, JC and Enchant stations:
    Deconstruction UI:
    Re-use that same description text box I mentioned above to suggest adding additional items to deconstruct in one go. (something like "Select multiple items to save time")

    Why is this needed?: Informs the player, and suggests use of the new feature.
    Personally, I knew I could select multiple items to decon, because I watched Finn do it the ESO Live stream ( B) ), but I don't recall anything in the new UI that actually told me I could do this.

    As always, I hope this helps,

    Haven't been able to check yet (PTS downloading) but if say I craft 100 potions in one go, do I get the same amount of xp gain I would from creating 100 individual pots?

    Shift + click goes up by 10's.

    Scroll Wheel moves it rapidly (just like in the CP tree)

    Although, I agree there should just be a text box to type in. (I'm sure an add-on will do this soon after launch)

    Echo the request for the entry field for a more precise and quick method.

    Perhaps also use that same solution on Champion Point interface as well. That would be super convenient.

    You get all the refined mats in one go. You have 6000 raw ore, click the refine button you have zero ore and all the refined mats. So if you do not have the craft bag you will have to do some banker dancing if need be, because I'm sure that ZOS put in a logic stop to prevent you from refining past what you can have in your inventory.

    I really love that i finally can do this crafting withing seconds. <3
    I redefined on pts a lot of jewelry dust. It took only 1 sec while on live i would have to wait for ages.
    I also like that there is a max button.


    Some ideas for improvements:
    • let me enter a number directly
    • add the option craft one full stack (e.g. 200 pots)
    • for redefine section add in addition to max also redefine all materials
    Ice Furnace: This item set now grants Spell Damage, rather than Weapon Damage for the 4 piece bonus
