I was watching the 1 daily free forge countdown tick down. I checked the 'Glorious' forge option and waited until it hit zero. Then I pressed 'forge'.
Somewhere between the last 2 steps, the checkbox got unchecked, and I performed a basic, minimal-quality forge, wasting my opportunity for the day.
PS: The countdown got stuck at 00:00:01 when the cost switched to Free. So that's another stupid UI glitch to maybe take care of.
