A simple, to-the-point phrase that sounds good on the surface, but apparently has many different meanings to different people. I hear that and I'm thinking "Alright, I just have to do 1 synth for this person"(perhaps more to make the parts that no one sells). Sadly, it could have a wide range of other meanings from "a mat or two is missing from your particular craft" to the inspiration for this thread:
What "I have ALL the mats" does not mean...
For a Canvas Acton(Blue) I'm gonna give you cotton bolls so you can make the yarn to use with these dyes I bought(but not all the dyes, didn't notice that kind was needed too). Also, let's teleport to Grid because that's where the rest of the mats are. Here's all the mats for the canvas chest guard...why are you switching to LW? Oh that's a LW recipe? I could've done that myself as I'm a LW, sorry 'bout that. Now lemme go buy that dye I forgot, oh you already had some, awesome! Here's the rest of the mats...oops, you need wolf fur, not a hide, brb! [15 Minutes Later] Here it is!...Oooh a +1, awesome! Thanks so much for helping, I'm off to grind...
[2 Minutes Later] Wait, while you're here can I get some repairs?
True story, no names needed as the dude was having a horrible night/morning and so instead of raging or somethin' I'll turn the experience into a thread so I can vent and hopefully get some laughs.(The item in question was also changed to another of equal or lesser value) And people wonder why all crafters aren't fighting over the opportunity to help them out
Anyway, feel free to share any experiences regarding this kind of situation. Also...
