You know I was one of the few that really enjoyed this game, well that is up until this last update. Now I cannot even craft things I was making easily before without paying attention and making every correct move along the way. I understand they wanted to make crafting more involved, but when I am failing things 5-8 ranks below me if I don't do everything correctly, it gets a bit tedious when you already have to craft that same item 500 times...

I will stick with it, but this new twist took alot out of it for me.

I didnt realize that they made any crafting edits. Maybe your RNG is broken... have you tried the "wait" button?

EDIT: Also, beware when reassigning stats... your previous stat setup may have helped more than what you changed it to.

Pay attention to Recommend Facility and Recommend Skill, most people don't have a clue about them and complain crafting is so screwed up. They are there not for shown, if you see them and you don't have them, you are going to have a very tough time. If you don't see them, just spam Standard and don't care about that glowing orb, you still get 99% of the time success.

You can power through not having the recommended skill (or rather, the level estimate in the recipes that don't have that skill reflects not having the skill in the first place, since nobody doing the recipe now has the skill!) Powering through the lack of proper facilities is a lot harder, though...

In the teens your gear and tool play a big part in crafting. To the OP what level are you?
