Rift Store Crafting Recipes and Lag/DC Issues

crafting lag

If you’ve been having a little fun with the new tradeskill extensions and utilizing the Rift Store to pick up all those crafting recipes without having to run to each of the vendors, you’ve probably noticed a bit of lag when opening the Crafting –> Recipes menu in the Rift Store. In fact, you may have noticed a bit more than lag and experienced some disconnects if you have learned a large number of crafting recipes already. The lag’s caused by the system trying to load all of the individual recipe information along with the info regarding which recipes your character has already learned at once.

The good news? Trion is well aware of the issue and is planning a fix:

We’re taking steps to divide the recipes into smaller bunches on the store. This should help with the problem those of you who’ve bought lots of recipes are having.

In particular, each profession will have its own category for recipes on the Rift Store.

As well, all the recipes that were exclusively on the Store will now be available on the artisan store NPCs.

While we were making these fixes, we went ahead and improved filtering by adding checkboxes (sub-sub-categories) for each type of recipe. And, even better, we’ve made the required skill levels visible and sortable in the list.

These changes should be going live with the next hotfix or two.

    Well, seems they are finally doing something with that. When I got all crafting professions and gatherings I started to have that lag issue. Thankfully I never disconnected, but it was still annoying to search for a recipe.

    I sent a suggestion 2 weeks ago, telling them to just load the crafting store with NOTHING selected. That way the user can select the crafting profession that they want to buy recipes from. Guess it didn’t go through, and it would be much easier than having to divide everything into more categories and subcategories.
