Might it be possible to add options in the smiting section of quick chat options to include a record of how much masterwork smiting an individual has achieved?

For example:

I have completed ... lined masterwork armor pieces.
I have completed ... glorious bars.



I don't think the option should be available for every masterwork component, but maybe just the ones which are more "checkpoint" like glorious bars and the masterwork lined plates. Keeping track of individual armor piece creation count would also be excessive.

I think this option would allow people to show off their new smithing skills, and also help people see how much time they've actually sunk into the making masterwork armor.

What do you guys think?

Why though? Making masterwork pieces is not an achievement. It would be like having quick chat messages for casting Fire Surge or chopping Crystal Trees. It's just not needed.

Which is a bummer, because it was originally meant to be a very prestigious thing.

They just didn't make it annoying enough to make.

It just wasn't annoying enough to make to uphold against the initial curiosity.

Do you really think there will be as many ores mined, bars made and items smithed in let's say half a year? Or well just compare the state now to the one when the rework was freshly released.

I understand this, and like I said in the original post....these options would only apply for a few of the masterwork components.

We currently have quick chat option for higher high tier skilling such as how much bamboo, salt, etc. has been mined in the Arc. There are a million selections for POF quick chat that were introduced on its release. You can even say how many of each piece type of warpriest you've collected and how many....

I just don't see why this wasn't included as the plates do take a considerably long time to make, and smithing doesn't have a lot of quick chat options as it is.
