    MH setup for crafters?

    Last night I attempted to synth a Vcloak(lvl 70) on Lightsday 60% moon. Considering I am 92.6+2+3 I thought I would have a chance for an HQ, but nope critical fail >< 8mil out the window I swear I am the unluckiest SOB to craft Vcloaks considering I have CFd 2/3 synths. After being incredibly frustrated I wanted some feedback about how other crafters setup their MH (earth energy?), and how much of an effect does it have on lost items durring a fail?

    I use overwhelming earth energy, but i can't speak to how it really affects anything... I'd say wait a couple levels until you can hit HQ2 tier on cloaks before you do anymore.

    I thought the energies were supposed to help you to lose less items when failing. On synths like V.Cloak any fail loses your critical items. So energies are pointless, at least in the big ticket synths.

    Well v.cloaks aren't automatic crits.. I've broken one and only lost 1 cloth

    Oh, good to know. Now a SH on the other hand, you would be wasting your time with energy there for sure.
