    Luminary tools worth getting?

    As the title inquires, are they? Currently only have Goldsmithing leveled (will eventually get around to the others) and noticed under the achievements the Luminary tools. For Goldsmithing the craftsmanship & control is the same as the Urcaguary tool, with the difference being the Luminary has "reduced durability loss +10".

    Along the way I managed to get 4/5 achievements needed with the last being 3,000 crafts from 41-50 (roughly 750 done so far).

    Should I bother working towards the shiny golden hammer?

    The only "working" I would do towards luminary tools at this point is setting myself to auto-craft 99 piles of shit when I go AFK. This applies to all DoH luminary tools as the only improvement they have over the other i55 counterpart is the reduced durability loss.

    Also, luminary tools use the basic crafting workbench for some ungodly reason.

    It's probably only a worthwhile investment if you plan on crafting for the next four years. Then the durability loss reduction will probably pay itself off.

    Doesn't it just mean your gear wears down 10% slower?

    This. It does this.

    It's not worth actively grinding for, because the cost of shards alone will trump whatever pitiful savings this would net you.

    essentiall free to get for most jobs, I've actually been breaking really close to even on GSM just buying ore and shards, making ingots, selling ingots, and i only do them on auto-craft, there is a lot of down time in MMO's in general, you can craft a stack of 99 (or start to anyway, and probably get good chunk knocked out) just waiting for a PF group to fill up, or do 2 or 3 99 stacks waiting on DF to queue as a DPS job lol.

    Greetings,

    In patch 2.2 we will be changing the graphics of the tables and workbenches that appear when you begin to craft with Luminary tools to the graphics that are used with the main tools obtained from the Disciples of Hand class quests.
    YESSSSSS

    That matters so much more than the stupid durability thing. Now I might actually try for some more luminaries.

    Honestly, they should add the relic +1 glow to all the Luminary tools.

    That's nice but considering the glamour system is coming in the same patch it seems almost redundant.

    This. And maybe up the craftsmanship & control over their "nq" counterparts so same as relic weapons/zenith to make them more desirable.
