Smithy worse than ever!

Bugs Fixed with this Update

Espionage Reports showing 'Target not Found' when opening from a different kingdom to the one the espionage was performed in
Equipment disappearing when a piece of equipment was changed and only appearing again when the page was reloaded
Espionage reports could not be forwarded
An Error Code would appear when trying to forge Legendary items
Objects disappearing when using the Technicus

Why has this been reported when the smithy is still so incredibly buggy?


Please pass this video on to the developers. It's getting more and more frequent.

    Yeah the bug was not fixed. Ive noticed it seems to have alot to do with when equipment gets removed or added to the inventory. The system is not updating properly right away like it should and double checking itself like it should. Instead it checks once and if its not right BANG you have a bug and its starts losing track.

    They should just fix this already. Very disruptive to gameplay. Some bugs are worse than others, this is definitely one of the more annoying, urgent bugs to fix.

    There is a work around as Ive posted many times. The main work around for players that I know of is to, instead of just exiting the smithy when the bug shows up - cycle back to the equipment screen, play with the different tabs real quick and you should notice the castellan or commander section update somewhere.

    As soon as you see anything change it has righted itself and you should be able to smith again, for a little bit anyway - as long as no new equipment got added to inventory. Now some might say well wont it bug itself as soon as you smith again? Not necessarily.

    I've smithed once and had the bug showed up, then I've righted the ship so to speak by playing with the tabs and sub screens and noticing equipment changing amounts (ie getting rid of stuff that is no longer actually there, updating etc) - and then I can smith several pieces of equipment in a row with no trouble. So it is kind of a temperamental bug.

    I have noticed the bug show up during a smithing session when a RBC completes and adds anything to the inventory, particularly equipment since most of us are smithing equipment more than gems. I've noticed the smithy to bug most consistantly under those circumstances.

    I know I have experienced some terrible smithy work in the past couple days. Having to login again and again as I forge a bunch of legendaries.. It gets to be annoying.

    As a work around try the following, works for me.

    1 Forge 1 item.
    2 Close encampment
    3 open encampment and got to smithy
    4 Click on Jewel tab
    5 Click on Commander/Castelan tab
    6 Forge another item
    7 repeat from step 2 for as many as required.

    exiting the camp and clicking on the jewel tab and back seems to reset the equipment list and lets you forge. A bit of a pain when you have loads to do but just about OK.

    Needs fixing though.

    Not as bad, so far so good - no bugs but I have not tested extensively.

    The code seems to be rechecking more often, which avoids the bug, this is good. However I can't confirm that its 100% fixed yet, Id need to hear from others.
