Get a scribe to make 250 of them. then proceed to, at the synthesizer thing, spend 30 seconds per catapult crafting. So 220 minutes stuck at this thing you can only access in your guild hall. and your scribe has to make the remaining 190 once that 250 stack is gone cause you can only que 250 of one thing at the synthesizer, meaning you can only craft that many at a time.

Anyone else see a problem with this? Lets break this down a bit.

You can que up to 10 things in this synthesizer, walk away and it takes 5 minutes to get through the stack. Note though you will spend a good minute trying to que 10 into this thing cause for whatever reason in functions like it runs windows 95 on a single thread 0.1ghz cpu. Resonance was removed for some gosh forsaken reason so you cannot speed this up anymore.

How much siege does a guild run through in a single run? its at least 20 pieces on any guild worth its salt for a 60-80 minute run. 20 pieces means spending maybe 2 minutes getting the mats ready and crafting and the 10 minutes of sitting and or waiting needed to synthesize. And this is assuming you are only crafting 1 type of guild siege...... diff ones cost different mats than thats gonna add some time to that 2 minutes.

Preparing beforehand you could get the mats and scribe a large stack of each siege type. Then que 10 from these stacks then do your run using previous built siege then at the very end visit your hall again and que another 10 then logout. Then repeat eachtime you login aka load up your guild hall and walk over to the stupid thing twice a session..... That would be the most ideal.

But someone please explain to me how this isn't the most idiotic system ever found in a game? If we need to slow down production why not just let people que things and let them produce on their own over a longer period of time? like a system where you craft and it just automatically synthesizes 10 things a day even is infinitely times better than what we have currently.

WHY does this stupid laggy synthesizer even have to exist???!! why must you make us que the stuff we scribed and obviously want built??? Being able to interact to monitor the wait times is okay.....but noone needs to interact with this stupid thing and manually que it!!

Why isnt this stupid thing in the mistlock singularity zone and other zones......why only in the guild hall where you have to marathon run around to do every little thing and there isnt even a trading post....

This is the stupidest system ever.
tldr Buy all your guild siege, while you wait for the system to get more frustrating.

Pretty much everything about guild halls has turned into frustrating busywork. I stopped farming the nodes (~50s isnt worth the time and effort), trying to decorate cause of the max stacks, and now I am tempted to stop checking the guild commendation vendor.....since its only on average once every 1.5 weeks that something worth the commendation value (about 1gold) turns up.
Honestly....idiotic design choices.

    I agree. Having each one pop faster would be great, but I would settle for being able to que up an infinite ( or like 100) items and let the run.

    I craft as a scribe and I wouldn't mind doing it the day before, but kitten....

    Thank You for the {MEME}

    The processing needs to be removed.
    The things you craft should appear in your inventory and then you should have an option to "consume all" to have it added to your guild storage. The same way the tactics from skirmish chests work.

    Crafting some tactics and guild siege is a huge pain mostly because you have to spend HOURS to put it all in the processing BS.

    This is crazy.

    After making I don't know how many guild catas and rams for my guild I would really love the processing to be removed and have the things crafted go straight to guild storage. Far too time consuming otherwise....I guess being able to queue 100-200 items would also be an improvement.

    Processing times on most scribe things are just silly - not to mention navigating the laggy interface. If we have to wait 30s per item, it would be nice to be able to send them to processing automatically. I mean, it's not like you can refund it or take it out or anything.
