I have reason to believe a hidden update nerfed portables. Specifically portable crafters. In my case, I created 20,000 battlestaves using portable crafters and 0 materials were saved despite it previously giving 5%. As far as I can tell, there was no logged update including this change.

5% of 20,000 is 1,000 battlestaves or ~5m gp that I have lost. That's 25% of a bond.

QA
Q- But, your account shows no crafting xp earned for a month.
A- Alt account.

Q- Why didn't you stop before 20,000?
A- I'm not actually crying over ~5m, I'm making a point.

Where did you see the portable crafter saves materiale when making battlestaffs?

With battlestaffs they only giv the +10% to xp and as far as i know they can save you hides, clays. and gems (not to top 2 gems).

I don't think these replies know they're wrong. Not everyone does crafting to 120 making B Staves - it's usually cutting gems.
About a week ago I also noticed that I wasn't getting the message The portable crafter saves you some resources. They have been sent to your bank.|
And if you want to be ignorant to the fact that there has been a nerf to Portable Crafters I suggest you take a look at the wiki, ironically, now easier to access in-game.
It clearly states the in-game message there.
This is either a bug in relation to the summer update or a hidden nerf which is completely unjustified.
Being almost 120 from making these and making extra each time, you can't really tell me I'm wrong here.

You're right. I should edit the page to make it say "you get 55 bonds if you use a crafter" because anything on a wiki is pure lore and always 100% accurate. I AM NOT A ROBOT

Because they did. This is a fact not speculation on what should be.

Well what it says on wiki is what it does ingame.

At this point it just seems like you're arguing for the sake of it as you've been told twice now what it can/cant do and yet you ignore it.

Based on the RS Wiki article, you're incorrect (it was also last updated on May 2, 2019, so it wasn't updated during the last week or fortnight). If you believe that you should be obtaining the bonus you claim you were receiving before, then simply send in a bug report in game. Jagex will get to it eventually, if there was actually a nerf not documented within the patch notes. The forums is not the place to post about this sort of topic.

Master -> Barrows Dye (#480)

This has never worked - it was even explicitly stated on the wiki that it didn't work for saving battlestaff materials for 3 years between September 2015 and September 2018 (when future edits removed that clarification - but still had them listed as NOT working with the portable crafter before later edits removed mention of battlestaves from the page entirely. The fact of the matter is it works for XP, but not resource saving, and that has always been the case for over 3 years at least, probably since it's initial release for that matter.

I'm more confused as to where people are getting the idea that it ever worked - if it ever did, that in itself was probably the bug, and no doubt short lived. The resources message is generic and is used for gems, hides and clay items and has nothing to do with battlestaves.
