    WoodWorking Blues

    Lately I have been having trouble crafting, i'm 100WW, with all subs to 60, and i dunno why, but a couple of days I crafted a Cursed Hadiate-1, and the very next day I crafted a Cursed Togi-1, and than(I usually Craft staffs 2x a week) I hav been trouble HQ'ing Staffs, most of my ratio's for staffs are usually 1/4-6 on HQ regularly, but today after 16 Ice Beads and no HQ's I just gave up. Has anyone had this kind of Trouble? SE Gimped Staff HQ's ; ;


    I'm on Remora Btw

    I stopped reading after that, and I'm wondering WHY you're complaining? With a 100 craft you should know that HQ, even under a tier, is still entirely random >.>

    Beads and Ore on our server are 400-700k a piece. They're not cheap. Ice Staves sell for a measly 10k a piece. Losing ~390k x 16 = ~6mil in one sitting. That's not funny.

    heh thats funny... the other day, new moon 0% iceday, exact same thing happened to me. I went 0/16 hq and just gave up out of total frustration. Meanwhile there's some new jerk in the staff market and for every 8 beads of whatever type he buys it looks like he sells 7 or 8 hq staves, it's really suspicious if you ask me >_>
    I've seen him sell maybe 3 nq staves and like 30-40 hq so far in the past few days and he's undercut everything to hell and killed profits (like every hq staff dropped 300-600k in about 3 days thanks to this one guy alone) I think I'm bowing out of the market, at least for now, cause this is just ridiculous

    It didn't sound like he was being funny to me, it sounded like he stated the simple fact that anyone who seriously crafts knows- that crafting is random and will often times blow ass. (Or I guess I'm the only person who has ever gone 1HQ in 36 synths on an item I'm 70 levels above?)

    It's all random, I've gone 3/12 on HQ1's just as often as I've gone (literally) 0/70+ on HQ1's. It all evens out over time, it's just statistics.

    Maybe laughing at the irony of someone with an Unsho, Panther Mask+1, Byrnie+1, Dusk Gloves+1 and two Triumph Earrings upset at failing a few HQ's on elemental staves.

    Edit: K, scrolled down to Koagula's post lol.

    For every shitty streak there is a good one. My philosophy is to ride out the bad streaks until you approach break even or pull out ahead. If you have a good streak, don't stop you should have a good idea of when to stop :wink:
    Alot of crafters dont build up enough material/gil to do a large synth batches to see the law of averages kick in, so they get pissed off or go broke when they get a bad streak.
    I was trying for angelstones (hq3 of white rock) the other day and went 40+ synths before getting 2 in a row right before the guild+auction house supplies were depleted.

    Sounds to me like the best crafting advice. Law of averages doesn't apply on a very little number of synths >.<
