    Crafting, WTF

    What is best for HQ? X_x; This was full moon + windsday. Everyone in my LS said it was best for HQ >< 1 lost bead, and 1 NQ. Ruisu said today total 1/5 HQ and 1 lost.

    All I can say is, New Moon sucks. Never craft on new moon, only full moon. And to respond to your thing... I say Full Moon + Day of the crystal is best. (but that's just me)

    Best day for HQ is on New Moon with the day strong to the crystal.

    However...good days for HQ's also are good days for breaks. I have a extremely crappy time HQ'ing on Full Moons but I also never break. It's a risk/reward thing

    Supposedly Full moon is best for skill ups and least change for breaks, but sometimes you just have a bad day.

    I'm sorry I'm not rich like everyone else >_> 350k loss isn't something to get used to <_<

    Edit: I think today just sucked. Kenichirou did 5 synths for me, no HQ, and Ruisu said today 1/5 HQ, 1 lost.

    are you 105 or 106?
    with 105 u loose more money then u make
    with 106, it's just about some luck. 350k isn't much of a loss,
    try breaking and loosing behemoth leather.

    Hehe, I lost 2 million on last new moon. And I still have to sell 9 things to get all the money back to try again. Hopefully everything will sell before next full moon.

    hmm i dunno about new moon full moon thing
    i've made 3 hawker +1 on each of the moon, and random between light and dark day
    and 1 random HQ on firesday random moon, when i was randomly making a hawker at port jeuno lol
    i made my cursed greaves -1 on new moon lights on 3rd try but i made cursed cuisses -1 on full moon lights on 6th try

    all i can conclude is HQ is very random at best

    waste of money trying to get HQ staves with 105.

    31 over is the first tier for HQ and 105 is 30 over... that 1 skillpoint brings up HQ chance from like 5% to more like 30%.

    basically at 31 levels over the synth and 51 over your hq chance becomes much higher, and gaining levels in between only helps hq % a teeny bit. ive just read this on a bunch of forums and stuff.

    There is a belief that there are "tiers" to crafting at 11, 31, and 51 over the cap of any item. At 11 your chance of HQing a synth is 5%, at 31 your chance of HQing is 30%, and at 51 your chance of HQing is at 50%.

    Personally, I think that crafting is a lot more random than that. It seems like there is a personal "luck" that determines how successful your crafting will be for any hour.
