PTS - Multiple Crafting Changes

So, I went on the PTS today to test out some of the new crafting (particularly the refining) changes that the game has implemented.

I saved up a large supply of raw top-tier materials by collecting a whole bunch of surveys (on Live), so that they'd be in my character's crafting bag when they copied over the templates to the PTS server.

A couple of notes first.

There is a limit of 1,000 refines at a time (10,000 raw mats)
There is a + and - button to select what you want to refine (as well a a "min" button, which selects 1 refine, and a "max" button, which selects the maximum possible). The default option is MAX
You can refine multiple items at the same time, however the ONLY option with this is "ALL", you cannot select different amounts
The process is truly instantaneous. Takes as long as 1 normal refine does currently on LIVE.

Results:

Woodworking.
11,710 raw ruby ash refined
9,962 sanded ruby ash (85.07% drop rate)
174 pitch (1.48%)
145 turpen (1.24%)
92 mastic (0.79%)
53 rosin (0.45%)

Blacksmithing
12,420 rubedite ore
10,588 rubedite ingots (85.24%)
172 honing stone (1.38%)
168 dwarven oil (1.35%)
72 grain solvent (0.57%)
66 tempering alloy (0.53%)

Clothing
6510 raw ancestor Silk
5494 ancestor silk (84.39%)
92 hemming (1.41%)
87 embroidery (1.33%)
54 elegant lining (0.82%)
31 dreugh wax (0.48%)

5020 rubedo hide scraps
4290 rubedo leather (85.46%)
89 hemming (1.77%)
56 embroidery (1.12%)
37 elegant lining (0.74%)
22 dreugh wax (0.43%)

Jewelry
10760 platinum dust
9142 platinum ingots (84.96%)
162 terne grains (1.50%)
140 iridium grains (1.30%)
77 zircon grains (0.71%)
62 chromium grains (0.57%)

The drop rates for all of these are within statistical normal drop rates of 85% return on material, 1.5% for green, 1.25% for blue, 0.75% for purple, and 0.5% for gold materials. So it appears that nothing has changed there!

    The interface on consoles will be interesting, but it should help at least somewhat.

    I am somewhat surprised they aren't charging Crowns for it given that they are doing that for so many other things. Grrrr.

    Great post. I still can't believe that you can mass refine in one go. Such a great change that will save so much time.

    I'm sure we can. According to patch notes:

    "Multi-Crafting
    You can now perform several actions in bulk at crafting stations and receive your items immediately! This includes refining, creation, deconstructing, and extracting, and applies to all crafting stations.

    Thanks for testing this. That was a concern I had, whether they got the multi-refine code right, so that it didn't glitch out and we'd lose tempers in the process.

    Since I main on console (and don't use add-ons on PC for that matter), I'm really looking forward to this crafting improvement.

    "

    Yup, potions work as well. Can make up to 1,000 at a time (4,000 potions, 16,000 poisons) as long as you have inventory space.

    Food works the same!

    I don't have any fish to filet :disappointed: to test, hopefully somebody else does.

    Glad to hear about the multiple refine simultaneously. The only negative I've heard is not being able to enter a number directly.

    At least on PC (because that's what I play) Shift + Click on the button will change it by 10. Scroll wheel also changes it rapidly. Those have been in the base game forever (particularly in the Champion Point tree)

    I'm would guess there's a similar "scroll" feature for consoles.

    For PC, I wouldn't be surprised if somebody writes an add-on, so that we can just type in any number we want in there in the future.

    I think fillet fishing will remain the same, at least for now, patch notes only refer changes to crafting tables/stations.....
