[Hireling Mail] Making it more convenient would be a huge qualify of life change

@ZOS_RobGarrett A change to how Hireling deliveries (and the Dark Brotherhood Shadowy Supplier) would be a profound Quality of Life improvement for players, especially those with multiple crafters.

Currently with the 24-hour timer, the schedule inches forward constantly due to login/service issues (like the one we just had with X-Box on July 24), in-game mail delay, connection issues, in-game activities with guilds/friends, and even scheduled maintenance.

Ideally, dropping the entire delivery into the Crafting Bag automatically without logging in at all would be great.

However, a simple change to 20 hours would mean players can adjust more easily back and forth at what time they pick up the delivery. An interruption one day can be remedied without having to push the entire schedule forward.

    I think the shadowy supplier is already set at 20 hours. Correct me someone, if I'm wrong.

    @tmbrinks Agree.

    That makes it worse. You have to log in twice for your two deliveries and the timer keeps pushing both forward.
    Twice the mats but twice the work and hassle.

    or... just treat the extra skill point as your "reduced" timer, so you guarantee a drop each day.

    I have 3/3 in all hirelings on all 36 characters I do writs on... I log onto most characters only once a day

    We have been asking for a 10/20 hour timer since beta.

    Best thing to do is invest 3 points so you get hirelings mails at least once a day no matter when you log in.

    Enjoy the game, life is what you really want to be worried about.

    Now's a good time to ask since they're working on the crafting system and some people can't even log in sometimes.

    I only log in once a day to my alts when doing writs.

    Would like the mats dropped directly into the craft bag though as you log in, instead of having to use an add on to auto loot and delete all the mails.

    But its a minor annoyance and doubt they will do anything about it.


    As for shadowy supplier would like the option to have the NPC available to be put in our houses, don't always feel like visiting an outlaw refuge.
