    You can do up to a 1000 actions in a given moment, there's still an anti-botting system in place from you doing too many actions in a short time span this includes from refining or fillet fishes, or bulk crafting.

    Nope. I only refine what I need when I'm out of something - or if there's an endeavor for refining.

    this game is ridiculous. how you gonna tell someone how much material they can refine? what nonsense. how absurd!

    We can refine as much material as we want-- just not all at once. Remember when we could only refine 10 raw materials at a time? That never stopped us from refining more than 10 raw materials, it simply meant we had to refine 10, then 10 more, then 10 more, etc. Then the ability to refine multiple groups of 10 was added, but from the programming side of it there has to be some kind of limit. If 1000 isn't enough for you, do 1000 more after that, then 1000 more after that, etc.

    so it's a blast from the past is it? yah actually that does sound vaguely familiar.

    speaking of 10 at a time how about we do 10 recons at a time instead of one?

    I suspect ZOS are concerned that that would lead to a lot of player errors and resulting tickets.

    for what? if i make 10 things and it costs 25 transmutes because i have all that set, if i make a mistake i just decon the mistakes and get my 25 transmutes back?

    Its the same if you are leveling alchemy potion discoveries, you will get kicked out of the game and put on a cooldown before you can log back in.

    This happened to me years ago and 2 weeks ago. It's prety lame, I mean getting booted to desktop for playing the game properly.

    I used to get all the flowers identified on every char. Got tired of being booted especially when they don't let you back in.

    Sometimes, I don't understand how this game works. I have only been here 10 years.

    This, they still has to run RND on each set of 10 for chance for tempers and other stuff.
    Now I'm pretty sure I had refined more than 1000 at once, know of 1800 but not more than 3000.
    Grinding just make you go in circles.
    Asking ZoS for nerfs is as stupid as asking for close air support from the death star.

    It’s a limit of 1000 refinements at once, so 10k raw mats.

    I see, now the game would need to run the rnd for refining 1000 times. Now I assume the loot tables are in memory and only the final result is written to database, so 10K raw material is removed and result is added.
    And an 10.000 limit makes some sense, you could get some joker refining +100K material and trigger some unique bug.
    Also then running loops its common to have an limit so some bug don't make then run forever.

    Your credit card has a maximum amount you can charge to it. And if there is a flurry of activity on your credit card in a short time, you can very easily trigger algorithms that will freeze your card. What you are seeing in ESO is standard industry practice in not just video games but dozens of transaction-based businesses, both real world and virtual. Customer convenience will eventually butt up against anti-fraud safeguards.

    Greetings,

    After further review we have decided to move this thread to a category we think is more appropriate for this topic, as it's about crafting.

    Thank you for your understanding
