I took a few months off; partly for a break, and partly because I was busy with real life. I had planned to come back in late March, after the RL stuff died down. Then I logged in. And then I checked my mail. And logged back out. To fully restock my potion shops (which have been picked clean while I was away) I'm looking at probably fifteen-twenty hours of hitting the craft button. Which is why it's almost May and I haven't returned. I don't know exactly what form it should take. Obviously, insta-crafting is out, especially with potions. But something. Maybe a max batch size of 99 or something, at least then I have long enough between batches I can get other things done. I don't know. I just know every time I think about getting back into the game, I end up doing something else.
