Bug Description:

Craft All button for Shaped Wood first consumes all branches

Bug Reproduction:

Press Craft All for shaped wood on carpenter’s bench with both branches and wood

If I have a lot of branches and I need more wood, I can convert them. If I have a lot of branches and want to save them for arrows later, I need to remove them from the bench before converting all wood into shaped wood.

This is made worse now that you cannot gather only branches by hitting branches on the ground with a axe.

The Craft All button for shaped wood should only consider wood, not wood + branches.

This function has been in the game for as long as I can remember (2018) so I doubt Funcom sees it as a bug, but rather a feature. They most likely did it to increase efficiencies, kind of like the furnace and different orders of smelting.

I usually only save about one full stack of sticks because I get so many from farming and they’re really replaceable.


Automatically adding prerequisite items to the crafting queue was a (relatively) recent change, it definitely wasn’t in the game in 2018.

I am not sure there is an easy solution to this particular issue. Automatically crafting prerequisites is usually a good thing, but using up all of your raw materials, especially in a highly inefficient way, can also be quite annoying. And having to remove the items you don’t want it to consume is also tedious. I still prefer this current system over having to manually craft prerequisites and wait for them to complete before being able to queue up the final item.


I agree, thanks for bringing it up. Like @Tephra says, it’s tedious to empty my bench all the time while i fix shaped wood. Ok it doesn’t happen every day to fix shaped wood and it’s not super important, but it will be nice not to be automatic, thank you!

If not, then I clearly didn’t notice when because I’m a micromanager when it comes to crafting.

Yes I love having to remove the branches I don’t want turned in to logs to turn in to shaped wood.

I gripped about this when they made the change. I hate having to keep most all my mats out of benches for fear the game is going to burn a bunch of mats automatically I don’t want used.

Have you noticed the game nolonger makes twine from plant fiber when you need it? It has quit automating that.
