    HQ3 gems

    well i'm finally goldsmithing 67+1+3 which means i broke the 51 tier on colored rocks so i promptly bought every rock in jueno as many rocks as i could in mauhra and then went to bostok did the guild item (44000/100000 on apron yay~) and bought every rock in bostok EVERY ROCK all rocks from guild and AH all in all i crafted about 350+ rocks and my HQ3 results are as follows

    3 Topaz = 250k each (made signed noble crowns with them)
    1 diamond = 360k each (gave it away to a friend lol)
    2 rubys = 125k each (on AH)
    1 emerald = 50k each (gave it away to a friend)
    0 sappire (blue rocks are so hard to get) = 600k each
    3 deathstones = 250k each (all 3 have already sold lol)
    1 angelstone = 200k each (sold already)
    1 spinal = 200k each (on AH)

    HQ2: gave all to a 100 goldsmithing friend (accept painite)
    HQ: made 1-2 stacks of each kind and a stack ranges from 50k-200k
    NQ: gonna turn the 100+ NQ stones into about 20-30 HQ level 14 rings

    This is my full days results which basically involved me crafting the whole day I also noticed I got the best results when I crafted a stone on the day that its weak to but that could just be cowincidence

    I just wanted crafters opinions on if this should be considered a good or back turnout for how many rocks I crafted
    thanks for any input on the matter~

    (edited for the final results before I logged out)

    its HQ3, pretty low percentage even with 51 over.

    11hq3 / 300 = 3.6% on hq3. - that does seem pretty shitty imo.

    yeah I thought so to ive had much better results with other 51 tier HQ3's

    Can I get my 5 seconds back that you wasted, because you felt the need to express that you had 5 seconds of your life wasted?

    busting out HQ3's on rocks are hard as hell.


    Sometimes depending on the day, you will get an HQ effect and just come out with a NQ

    Actually that has nothing to do with the day. It's just that some gems have an HQ1 which is the same as an NQ. Example are white and black rocks:

    White Rock
    NQ: Light Opal
    HQ1: Light Opal
    HQ2: Moonstone
    HQ3: Angelstone

    Black Rock
    NQ: Onyx
    HQ1: Onyx
    HQ2: Painite
    HQ3: Deathstone

    My testing shows the % breakdown is something like:

    NQ: 50%
    HQ1: 30%
    HQ2: 10%
    HQ3: 5%
    Break: 5%

    This testing is only over about 500 synths, so obviously I need more data which I'm slowly gathering over time. That being said, I'd -love- to see a similar test done for the 31-50 tier (Darksteel Chains, anyone?)

    At the skill level I'm at on goldsmithing (veteran, but not 100 yet) I should be busting out at least HQ2's on white rock and black but hardly ever get anything. I've tried/done dark day for white rock and light day for black and have come out pretty good but most of the time it's jack shit.

    I rarely do them anymore so you migh be right. Since sapphire is at a high demand right now, I'm gonna see if i can get some blue rock and see how my luck goes.
