View Full Version : Stone of Change - faster animation

08-22-2011, 06:35 AM
You did it to Devices of the Crafting Hall. And you made lots of players happy not wasting their time anymore with lengthy crafting animations.

Could you add the faster animation to the stone of change too?

I always shudder when I have to bring my 30000+ Syberis/Khyber Dragonshards Fragments to the Stone of Change.
I put a stack in, activate and tab to browse the forum, tab, activate, tab, .... It takes that long. Im writing this post while crunching fragments.

Solution 1
faster animation

Solution 2
Allow bigger stacks to be processed at once; depending on the size of the stack.
(example Syberis Dragonshards: 10000 Fragments to 1 Imperfect instead of 10000 Fragments to 1 Flawed, leaving 9000 Fragments in the window. Saves 10 clicks)

Solution 3
Conversion into a barter shop like the Cannith Crafting devices. (combines solutions 1 and 2)
This may be planned anyway but takes the most development time. So I am ranking it lower.

Please :)

what i want is to be able to slot a guild slot before the timer runs out that way you can keep it minty fresh and ya speed it up.

The shard transformation could use some improvement, it is quite annoying to upgrade stocks of 10,000 shards. Even a checkbox would be ok, that allows you to get the highest possible uprade process for the amount you put into the altar.

/signed to both being faster and allowing an automatic highest convert (i.e. placing 10k frag siberys and get a regular in one pass)

would also like to see us being able to refresh our guild slots without waiting until it's completely expired. Nothing is more annoying than seeing you got 5 mins left on the augment and you can't do anything about it before heading off to that raid/epic...

/absolutely signed

I cringe every time it's time to go crunch shards.

been wanting this for a long time.

Thanks for the support.

The guild augments are a different topic, but I can sign it too.
Refreshing or overwriting the augment before it wears off, would be nice.

Converting raid to regular epic tokens is a horrible chore.

I can definitely agree with this, as long as it doesn't result in heavy lag after opening a crafting gump, but in the meantime...

You can short-circuit the second half of the animation if you're quick and don't mind extra mousework -- keep the SoC hard-targeted (you'll need to retarget after every activation) and close the dialog immediately after the *shink* success sound, immediately reopen it, and drag'n'crunch more noms for the stone.

It doesn't result in much of a time reduction (or any at all if you're prone to fumbling), but it does speed it up and keep you somewhat more engaged in the process.

i vote take out the stupid animation altogether
looks ******** and serves no real purpose

ew, I just had a mental image of a minty full plate. I dont think that would help with the smell from constantly swimming in sewer water.

I suspect the Stone of Change will eventually get the same barter UI upgrade that many other older crafting systems have gotten...

Hopefully with some new features added when its time!
