    No proof this actually helps, but:


    Dark Success- North
    Light Success- North East
    Ice Success- East
    Wind Success- South East
    Earth Success- South
    Lightning Success- South West
    Water Success- West
    Fire Success- North West

    I use that crystal direction, whether it's proven I can't say for sure, but IMO it helps to a degree.

    It may not work, but it takes so little effort to do it that I consider it a trivial matter.

    On the other hand, it could negatively affect your results since nothing is proven. Experiment yourself, do what -you- think works. I made 10 million last night facing the directions that would make baby Jesus cry if he had followed the crafting compass.

    Probably because that direction is the fail direction, which increases HQ, which is how you make profit?

    Might want to be a little less vague for the example

    I know about the "fail direction" and the "HQ direction". What I meant is, it goes against everything the supposed "crafting compass" aims to teach. I was using an Earth Crystal and facing Northwest (Fire). I was in the 11 tier for the item. It was 70 something % moon. Went 2/4 on HQs. Anyone who has done serious experimentation knows that 90% of what's on that compass is a load of crap. It's fine that people believe it though, it means less competition when I'm trying to sell my HQs.

    I just face north for whatever reason. That chart says North is for Success (less HQ) on Dark Crystal but I've now gone 1/6 twice on Demon Helm HQ just facing north. Whatever^^;

    Well, if Sage Sundi would ever stop being useless at those Q&A sessions maybe we would know for sure. >_>

    Which is why we need to zerg Ondori into the backstage question place at the Texas iGames thing. He's probably the only person in the entire world that would ask questions that people actually want to know the answers to. Knowing Sundi, he'll probably try to side-step everything.

    Ondori: Does direction affect the outcome of crystal synthesis.
    Sage Sungi uses Perfect Dodge.
    Sage Sundi evades Ondori's question.

    Old joke, but it is true...

    I'm going to that, and I'll be asking questions that people want to know the answer to. I posted a partial list in another thread somewhere, but nobody cared
