... Extreme minority? :/ And it doesn't make any sense for the skills to have the same number, since unless you're specifically trying to do the same number of casts, you wouldn't do that. Not to mention differing PP costs between skills and in some cases duration. In the case of assembly, there are very few reasons to have it retain the number (the few multi-stage things which people might actually make in bulk, or part of the jetpack). As opposed to, anything else? Making lots of different types of items? It just doesn't make any sense to retain that number. In most cases, no one makes a second jetpack anyways, so that's not even a standing problem. And in the former, it can cause problems, like when you make too many of another item you were making in bulk. If it defaulted to one and undershot, you've not wasted anything and can simply click and enter the right number, as opposed to irreversibly losing the items short enerbun/firecrackers, the former of which is difficult to come by at mid levels and the latter of which is a very rare drop in a somewhat otherwise useless zone past level 4 >.> Don't confuse what you find convenient with what the majority would find convenient.
