Need help with crafting

Hi, my character Lily Greenfingers has just started learning to gem-craft. Until very recently, I have been getting along just fine, but the last couple of times I have tried to polish gems, I have failed with either "You are missing an ingredient for this recipe" or "your attempt at this recipe failed" and a couple of times "you lack sufficient tools to craft this".

I have rough small alexandrites, lapidary supplies on the table and lapidary tools in my inventory, not in a bag. This "should" be sufficient to craft what I am trying to do, but the problem persists, I have had someone else try with my tools and supplies and they had no problem at all, which leads me to believe it must be something wrong with my character.

Any ideas what might be wrong?

Gram was there when Lily was trying to craft these. He was able to craft what she put on the table, but she couldn't. We tried a few things:

- Lily dropping the lapidary tool and then putting it back in her inventory
- relogging
- trading our lapidary tools to see if it made a difference (it didn't)

... but no dice.

I had the same problem once at ACE, but have no idea how I fixed it.

And no, her lapidary tool was not in a bag.

Hope that helps...

It's related to where the lapidary tool was bought originally, should be same server its being used on, I think. (and if you got it from a p-merchant, then who knows which server it was from originally) The rule of thumb is, if the tool's not working, and it's in a bag, take it out of the bag and leave it in inventory. If it's not working and out of a bag, put it in a bag. Or try changing servers, or changing tools. If none of that works, then I dunno.

I know this is ask the team, but I am not sure how many team craft so I want to give one more suggestion. Make sure the table does not have more than 300 items on it and also make sure you don't have too many items in your inventory. That will also cause the table not to find everything on it. Put the lapidary on the table and take it back off into the first page of your inventory. For some reason I have had that fix the problem many times.

I do have a bunch of stuff in my inventory, so I'll try clearing it out a bit and try again when I get home
