Yes, I'll pre-craft the potions, except the 3 I've disabled in the Lazy Writ Crafter settings, so that will take only 5 extra slots from each crafter's inventory. I won't be doing this for the alts until they're up to level 50 in alchemy, though, because until then the required potions/poisons keep changing.Alchemy is another option, takes up 8 slots or 7 extra if you use health pots already.
They're already maxed for the hireling skill. Alchemy and provisioning are maxed, with brewer and chef skills maxed for the latter. For those with extraction skills, they're all at 2/3 currently. When the main and extraction skills are maxed for all crafts, I'll start putting points into the keen eye skills.@vsrs_au it seems you're doing as much as you can speed wise.
The only other thing is efficiency with the multiple character log-ins: I'd suggest ensuring all crafting (and even non-crafting characters) are maxed out on hirelings so logging in provides additional mats. The provisioning hireling will take care of that jazbay grapes (and most other provisoning mats) issue in a few weeks/months depending on number of characters and number of skill points allocated to hirelings, as well as providing purple provisioning mats.
I've already maxed hireling skills, and also configured LWC addon to auto-abandon alchemy writs including mudcrab chitin, nirnroot and whatever the third one is (I forget). I've pre-crafted all the remaining alchemy writs and the provisioning ones also.Make sure to get max hirelings on all of your characters.
Typically what I do is max all of the characters to 50 it gives the best roi to do max writs.
As far as replenishing mats. Assuming you do surveys and a bit of farming you should at least break even on equipment mats.
For enchanting, the oko, deni, and mako runes are what I run out of I tend to just pull vendor glyphs for decon or go shopping in guild stores with profits from crafting writs.
For provisioning and alchemy. I pre- craft in bulk all of the pots, poisons, and foods I need and store in bank.
To replenish hirelings and farming and buying. Chitin is the most painful of the mats to farm up. To the point that I consider skipping the quest when it comes in rotation.
