Craftability[edit]

Should it be noted on this and the HOPE/Nevermore (maybe Chuka, I'm not sure if that's the same) precursor's pages that these precursors can only be crafted once? My husband unfortunately wasn't informed of this and wasted materials trying to make it a second time. I'm hoping this will stop other people from making the same mistake in future.~Miss Lana (talk) 23:58, 15 September 2019 (UTC)

All 2nd generation precursors can only be crafted once, unlike the 1st generation which can be crafted as many times as one wishes. I'd advise your husband to contact support, they might be able to refund the materials used to craft the redundant parts. —Ventriloquist 19:23, 16 September 2019 (UTC)
Are you sure that's not the other way around? I was only able to craft the energizer once, but can craft save the queen again if I wish. Considering there are only a handful of exceptions to the ability to craft second gen precurors more than once, I think they should be noted on their respective pages at the very least.~Miss Lana (talk) 06:47, 17 September 2019 (UTC)
You're right. We should add notes on this to the articles, because it's a little complicated. —Idris User Idris signature.png 07:11, 17 September 2019 (UTC)
I'll add it to the ones that I know for certain that can only be crafted once, feel free to edit the wording if necessary. I don't do many edits of the actual pages.~Miss Lana (talk) 07:23, 17 September 2019 (UTC)
Most of the first gen precursors already seem to have a note to this effect just above the recipe; I think the aquatics still need one, though. —Idris User Idris signature.png 07:25, 17 September 2019 (UTC)
I was specifically talking about adding notes to the second generation precursors that can only be crafted once, since all gen 1s are once only, but not all gen 2s are.~Miss Lana (talk) 07:29, 17 September 2019 (UTC)
Sure, I was just giving you an idea of how similar information was already displayed on other articles, so you could make sure they're all consistent with one another. Tigris seems to have done it this way too. —Idris User Idris signature.png 07:34, 17 September 2019 (UTC)
