Making crafting more "fun" through glitches.Follow

So I just sat down to do a little Gold Smithing, and while I wasn't particularly bored yet by the crafting mini game: the XIV gods decided to spice it up for me anyhow. I just spent the last 30 minutes trying everything I could to get my tool/and glowy orb to Render.

Yep, it certainly adds an element of excitement and suspense to be crafting moderate to difficult synths with no indication or ability to decern what state the neon fushigi is in. Imagine my delight after each time sitting down to use precious wind/fire shards and crystals only to discover I'm now playing the super secret game of Crafting Roulette x.x;

After my umpteenth relog I finally appear to have appeased the powers that be.

Hrm.. I have the opposite problem.. Sometimes when I go mining, I get one of those glowy orbs stuck in my elbow and it doesn't seem to want to go away. Usually I can't even see it, but when I look at my sister's screen, she definitely sees it and so do other people.

Oh I tried everything, relogging, restarting, swapping out tools and reequipping them (both manually and through macro). I even went out and did a battlecraft leve then came back. X.x;

Where you crafting in a busy area? stuff like that happens to me if i try to craft in a high pop area. So i started crafting out in the middle of nowhere. It's a lot better for most things. It won't help doing locals though.

Last time that happened to me I wasn't able to get my mortar working until I switched to a different craft and did a few synths, then switched back to alchemy...

That's quite an interesting glitch then. Hope it doesn't happen though... -_-

The worst I had was only a visible delay before the orb appeared if there was a change in state.
