    Skillups with +skill gear

    A friend of mine who is 103 bonecraft told me after i got my woodworking apron and gloves that wearing thoes while synthing things reduces skillup rate if your over the cap.

    for example im making kabura arrows which cap at 91 im level 90 and im wearing the gloves and the apron for 90+2 now will i get less or more skill ups? or will it just stay the same... I guess the same thing can be said for advanced support as well with similar things...

    Any ideas?

    Fail rate is exactly the same if you're @ cap or 10 levels over. HQ rate is the same as well. I've felt skillups were slower when over cap, the safest bet for both skillup superstition and HQ rate is to set yourself exactly at cap using a variety of guild items and support (in your case wear 1 item).

    Quoted for truth. You gain zero by putting yourself explicitly over the cap, why not be safe and put yourself exactly at the cap?

    Doesn't hurt to have +skill gear when skilling up. Gives you a *slightly higher* chance on those t0 HQs. 8)
