So let me get this straight... First,I have to complete a quest to be ALLOWED to smelt gold more than 28 at a time... THEN you morons f****d up the gauntlets for said quest so that in order to make them smelting gloves you have to work around it by making them cooking gauntlets first THEN spending 25k to convert them because your coders are f*****g idiots and messed that up too... THEN to top alllllll that off, the gauntlets do absolutely f*** all anyway now?!?! Jesus Murphy, tell the dev team to stop letting their autistic f*****g kids play at the PCs while the grownups smoke meth in the bathroom... Be thankful your staff remain anonymous because rest assured if they were publicly known I would find enough gold to forge a pair of life sized smithing gloves and shove them straight up one if the idiot's a**es!!!
Just noticed the xp was going to write up a complaint but nice someone else noticed. Ya was another option for leveling smithing besides normal ores and even more xp if you had the gloves from doing the quest but, kind of defeats the purpose of getting them. And going out and mining and smithing for so little xp. Kind of reminds me a little of flax noone wants to do so they depend on the bots. Why not make it worth the time and effort to do for players so they don't have to depend on them...Kind of going to kill crafting more people probably won't make the jewelry much just cut gems or other stuff instead of wasting time on making the bars.
I just came back to the game after the smelting update and this whole gold smelting fiasco has really dissuaded me from playing. I even had a few thousand ore that I was in the middle of smelting that now I can't do. SAD!
