Uhmm I was using Lazy writ crafter and it said that the crafter using "tempering alloys" to craft on a clothing table???

I stopped when I realised but it used about 30 tempering alloys for a daily writ, and my temperin alloys are gone

If it is a joke, not very funny

    Its just a little joke the add on creator added, it happens during a lot of the events, all it does is change the name of the required mats for the writ on the interface.

    I freaked out the first time I noticed it last year sometime, thought the game had broken the add on with an update or something.

    Wait, I'm trying to understand this.

    An add-on used up 30 gold tempering alloys to do a daily crafting writ, and it did that as a "prank"?

    If I've understood that correctly, it's a pretty sick "prank," the add-on should be banned (or de-approved, whatever the proper term would be) by ZOS, and the maker of the add-on should be banned from ever having any more add-ons approved.

    it says it uses them but doesn't. It is just flavor text prank.

    Like it says using red herring or jester hats etc.

    You can even turn it off. [snip]

    Nah. It just swapped stating that it was 'making' the items out of it. It doesn't actually use the high tier materials. This happens every year in it's existence and it's nothing new. One year the person made it where all your ability names were crazy colors and a lot of general lulz. It's a joke. I even checked mine as I was doing them and not ONE of them ever disappeared. Not ONE.

    Which you can avoid by taking one (1) look at your inventory and seeing that Nothing happened.
    Politeness is respecting others.
    Courage is doing what is fair.
    Modesty is speaking of oneself without vanity.
    Self control is keeping calm even when anger rises.
    Sincerity is expressing oneself without concealing ones thoughts.
    Honor is keeping ones word.

    I love st Dolgubon.. their plug-in has made my gaming so much more enjoyable (and profitable). Massive, massive respect.

    But this isn’t a funny joke.

    Especially today where many players will be doing a load more crafting as the anniversary event starts tomorrow.

    Secret note: if you do a pile of writs today, but turn them in after the Event starts you will get boxes for all of today’s writs (and any other daily quests). So tomorrow is a double box day .

    Oh nooo, I wish I knew that

    Also are motif drop rates good? Because people always told me to wait for this even before spending too much for motifs? Really all motifs drop?

    Hmm calling people simple for being concerned. Nice. It didn't personally affect me as I had already read this thread before logging in to do my writs, so I was fully expecting the "joke". But I can understand people not seeing the funny side to this. Not everyone follows the April fools tradition and could easily be forgiven for being concerned seeing a ton of their mats being used, considering how add ons can bug out or new people to the game who don't yet fully understand how crafting works.

    that's your fault for using addons, you dont know what's going into your writs, and as a result, you're loosing materials you were not expecting to loose

    As been stated it's just a little humorous "event" based text. It's impossible for it to actually craft anything with alloys, especially cloth. It does the same around Halloween and Christmas. For me it said it was using mudpies.

    ...🙄 They are not loosing anything besides the stuff you'd lose by doing it manually. You can't make ancestor silk cloth epaulets or whatever item it is for the crafting writ using alloys. It's not the material used.

    Malware... omg. Why not call it a virus? All addons are bad code! Don't use them!

    Guys relax :) Just enjoy the joke. It's just "changed text".
    And thanks to @NotaDaedraWorshipper for describing it a bit further more.

    Or a very simple solution:
    Disable all addons at the date 1st April (or check their addon settings if there is a setting to disable the "joke").

    I saw that, then I noticed that I was using 30 of 14k tempering alloy and all of a sudden I was happy!

    It's funny.

    Undocumented features in add-ons is probably the biggest reason why Consoles will never have them.
