Aldanga's Lazier Writ Precrafter
Version: 1.7.0
by: Aldanga [More]
If you want to pre-craft daily writs, you've come to the right place! You can pre-craft daily writs of any level (or any combination of levels) and save yourself precious minutes while hopping between toons for dailies.

First up, this addon would not be possible without Dolgubon and LibLazyCrafting. Many thanks to him for his help in getting this addon (particularly the multicrafting) off the ground.

Commands
/scq without any parameters will queue the maximum number of rotations that will fit in your inventory.

/scq [multipler] will craft items for selected daily writs for the desired number of rotations. A rotation is a 3-day cycle for a particular profession. With all supported professions enabled, /scq will craft 37 total items. Crafting a set of 3 rotations (via /scq 3) would queue up 111 items to be crafted, so keep that in mind when queuing up rotations.

/clearqueue will clear the current character's queue.

Settings
You can enable (or disable) professions in the settings menu.

UI
There is currently no GUI, but I am open to suggestions.

Caveats
Things may get funky if you have autocraft enabled for Dolgubon's Lazy Writ Crafter while using Precrafter. I recommend disabling LWC autocraft if you're wanting to precraft.

Queued items are NOT saved to variables, so if you crash or otherwise log out, your queue will be gone.

If you enter a station without sufficient mats to craft the entirety of that station's queue, you will force-leave the station without crafting all of the items and without any obvious messaging from the addon. I intend to add messaging support (errors and warnings) in a future update, but I figured I might as well release this to the public since it's proved so useful to myself and my wonderful testers.

Support
If you run into problems or have suggestions not covered here, please provide feedback and I will try to be as helpful as possible.
[1.7.0] - 2020-08-06
----------
Added
- /scq command now will craft the max number of items based upon your current available inventory slots (passing a number will still limit crafting to that many rotations) — Thanks, @Dolgubon!
- Ability to craft in any known style, thanks to LazyWritCrafter's free style choice option — Thanks, @Dolgubon!
- Warning if you try to queue more rotations than you have available inventory slots
- /scqf command in case you want to force queuing without enough available inventory slots
- Basic chat messaging when you queue a rotation (or are prevented due to available slots)

[1.6.1] - 2020-06-16
----------
Fixed
- Missing LibAddonMenu-2.0 dependency declaration

[1.6.0] - 2020-06-15

Most definitely! It saves me 10-15 minutes of gameplay per day. I craft writs DAILY and have for nearly a year! (do THAT math)

Understood, Thanks!

Yeap! Sounds very much as I anticipated. I'd been trying to document any sort of repeating schedule but just don't see one.

That helps alot, Thanks!

On the tunes I use this addon for I do nothing but daily writs and dump everything into bank following turn-in using the Personal Assistant addon. Also, these toons have max backpack capacity so I'll try to figure out which /scq value to use per skill to try to get the same number of days per skill.

That sounds like a logical next step. It will be further complicated by a need to evaluate current and desired inventory for each crafting skill for which the inventory would be created.

Thanks again for an AWESOME addon and for taking the time to expand on its usage.

Cycles, and how many crafting days?

I have ritualized daily crafting with all toons and your addon is an absolute MUST HAVE for anyone who wants to maximize their daily crafting efforts.

I am however, having some trouble grasping the cycles and how many days I can get from the weekly restocks. Its likely just my lack of familiarization with the 'possible writs'. I try to restock each sunday to craft enough items to last until the following Sunday (So, exactly seven days worth of each). All toons are skill-maxed. Here is what I am doing on restock day:

1. Complete and turn in the Sunday writs.
2. On the first toon I visit the Blacksmithing Store and purchase 600 Manganese (all toons are set to only craft orc style).
3. Then I run the addon with '/scq x' where 'x' is the number of cycles I believe I will need for the next seven days.
4. I visit each station to craft the weeks items.

So, I thought I had the math down but I keep ending up with too few or too many crafted items. So, here are my questions:

1. What does a 'cycle' consist of?
2. Is the number and type of items an exact value each week?
3. Am I chasing my tail to try to end up with all items used each sunday?
4. If '3' is yes, what is your best recommendation for maintaining inventory for such a weekly rotation?

Thanks again for an incredible addon!

Yes. I use it every day. I just haven't had time to add any new features for a while.
Thanks for the quick reply! I haven't been able to test (NA Servers are currently choking to death) but will give it a go when able.

If you need assistance I'd be happy to help where I can. Let me know what you want to do, I'll change on my system and you can see if it meets your needs.

Thanks again!!!

Not at the moment. It's on my list as not having those precraftable adds a lot of time to my daily writ hopping.

As I understand it, your addon will help me create several of the items needed and let me deposit them in the bank (and withdraw them on other characters), and btw, what happens if some of my toons don't have the same skill (i.e. what if some use iron ingots, and others use steel ingots, etc.) ?
What likely happened is you ran out of whatever style stone was picked at the beginning of the crafting. Items are supposed to be able to dynamically change style stone on the fly, but there's an issue somewhere (either in here or LibLazyCrafting) that prevents that from happening after the queue is set. It's something I haven't been able to track down yet, and would likely require changes to LLC if I ever find the time to track down where that's happening.

If you run into that issue in the future and have enough crafting mats for the particular station (wood, leather, etc.), what you can do is check to see what style the items that did get crafted are in, and then buy more of that style mat from a crafting NPC. NPCs sell them for 15g each, and you can right click to buy more than one at once, up to 999 at a time, so the problem can be worked around rather quickly.

I'd like to be able to add some messaging around crafting issues, but I have very few hours every week to work on projects (5 hours if I'm lucky), and I have half a dozen addons, including ATT, plus other projects, that split that time. So I prioritize the things that impact the most people, and unfortunately this addon just isn't as popular as the others and often gets pushed to the back of the queue.



You can't create the items and deposit them into the bank to use on other toons. For writs involving gear, the items have to be created by the character turning in the crafting writ. What I do is craft multiple rotations at once, then leave those items on the character so I don't have to run to the crafting stations while I still have items in my inventory. This allows me to log in on a character, grab the writs from the board, then turn them in and log out again.

If you're doing writs on a bunch of characters, it saves a ton of time. You still have to go to the crafting stations on each character, but if you have lots of inventory space and queue multiple rotations, you'll only have to do that once every week or two. On days where I don't have to do any crafting, I can do writs on 18 characters in about 35-40 minutes (including loading screens).

The addon supports crafting items at any skill level, and will be able to determine which material to use to precraft writ items. However, like I said before, you can't share the quest items between characters; they have to be created on the character turning in the quest.

Hopefully that answers your questions. Please let me know if you have any others.

Again this thing is amazing and saves me so much time !!!!!
I have the same problem sometimes, so I feel your pain.

I intend to add some new features (including an indication of queued/completed items), but I'm not sure when exactly they will come. Life's very busy and I've got other addons that I'm maintaining as well. But hopefully soon!

It creates the correct ones but somehow the daily crafting quest is not accepting them as the proper one on some characters. It could be that another addon I'm using messed with it when I crafted them through your addon. Let me clean out a character & I will double check with a new set and let you know. I just thought I missed something obvious
Update:

One of the recent game crashes must have corrupted something with my glyph id's. New set works perfect, had to decon old one. This addons is GREAT, saves me 30 min or so on writs everyday !!!!!
