Looking for some form of macro to automate bulk combines. Don't know shit about macros though. All I need it to do is something simple like 1, 2, 2, 2, 2, 3, 3 and begin new synth x infinity. Anyone care to post a link or retards guide to automated key presses?
Just get to level 10 or whatever and get quick synthesis. Good luck automating HQ combines if that's what your looking for.
Unless you have an overabundance of CP gear and are crafting lower level combines you're going to be in manual mode for HQs by doing tricks of the trade and wanting to maximize on Excellent conditions.
There's a couple reasons.
#1. There is a huge market for certain bulk 2nd tier+ mats on my server. Buy x mats, combine in bulk, sell product for huge margins. This gets less worthwhile the higher you go due to cost of mats and much narrower market.
#2. Even into the low to mid 20's on certain tradeskills you get assloads of xp doing bulk combines of components. Using quick syn I leveled from 19-21 In around 400 cotton threads. That method shorted me 4/5ths of the experience I would have gained via normal combines.
#3. Any item within three tiers of your current level is worth doing this with. after that xp drops off sharply. They are also extremely simple guaranteed successes. Example of hard leather at my current level. 50% Hq rate 100% success rate with set pattern of ability use. Sells for an acceptable profit and incredibly efficient for xp gain due to the product stacking. making armor and shit is by far the best way to level but your inventory is only so large nad with a few exceptions that are often glutted there's not much chance of it being worth the market space to sell.
#4. Since I'm focusing on material combines each syn is so fast even automating all actions requires almost constant attention. It's not worth the time to do by hand unless I'm just being cheap rather than buying components off the AH but if it were possible to automate the begin syn button it becomes very worthwhile to do while browsing or doing something else. To be frank morally it may as well be botting but the only thing not supported by the default UI is clicking the button to start the combine so... fuck it.
At worst you pretty much break even and often turn a profit. But fuck me if I'm doing 200-1000 combines by hand at a time.

Wouldn't AHK be pretty much perfect for this? As long as you are doing something in a fairly predictable pattern it should be fine.
I haven't used it, but it seems perfect for botting crafting. Not sure about botting gathering.
Gathering is technically annoying to bot using a simple script or pixel checking, you need to either do something really annoying or do what chinese bots do which is reading the memory to determine node positions and shit like that, can also move to nodes at full speed while stealthed and whatever else. These are still fairly rare.
For crafting yeah just need a simple script. While you can do it manually and sometimes get more xp, it gets to a point where it's not worth it, the % quality vs the % xp isn't 1:1, if you have like 1/3rd of the quality bar, you get +200% xp, if you have it full, you get +300%, but it takes almost twice as long to guarantee 300% and has to be done manually. As for how exactly I don't know I guess using the 0 key spam script that's posted in the error 1017 thread and just adding different keys to the loop for your crafting thing would work fine? 0 to launch synthetise, then 1 2 3 3 3 3 3 4 3 3 3 5 5 5 or whatever, with 1 2 being innerquiet and steady hands, 3 being hasty touch or basic touch, 4 being master mend I or II and 5 being basic synthesis or careful synthesis. Loops until you hold F1, you'd need to adjust the script everytime you change recipe based on the durability numbers and how many synthesis you need to finish etc.
I'd just use AHK to loop the craft, and write an in-game macro to actually trigger the actions. Much simpler that way, since you can have multiple macros for recipes with different max durabilities.

I left it one night before bed to do all my diremite web yarn stuff, think I was 22 or 23 and came back next day to level 25.5 with the 150 or so yarn all done ;P Then I ran into lightning shard shortage and had to stop to get mining to 20 and still farming me up shards.
