    Goldsmithng 60>100

    Hello guys and girls im actualy GS 61.7 and have about 35M and i really would like to be able to get 100 with that money

    actualy i do Hydro patas and i think its the best way to not lose alot money till lvl 65-66

    after that i think maybe doing Plat.Rings it cost alot but you can sell them back and finally not lose alot money

    but but but

    after 70 it becames scarry >.> till i can craft breads i didnt see any craft that isnt a complet lose of money

    So i call for a GSer help if anyone can tell me a way to lvl easy and not lose all my money

    (True Strike). I'd even say level cooking. With cooking you don't have to compete with the expansion packs for ring and earring slots like you do with goldsmithing, but maybe I'm just jaded.

    You should get kind of far with that, then you can HQ things when you start running low on cash for money. You should be okay.

    Don't level goldsmithing.

    It's the devil and 35mil is chump change.

    You should hook up with a bonecrafter that is on the bone patas stage of leveling. They churn those things out in large numbers and can provide you with the patas you need to level smoothly to 67. I remember I was supplying several different goldsmithies when I was at that stage. I haven't researched goldsmithing in depth but they all told me that was the cheapest recipe available to them at that level. It won't get you 60 > 100 but it's a good way to get 7 cheap levels when everything else is expensive, so it's a start.

    no i'm 65.5 i made like 40+ Platinium Earings and used 15M now i think ill do the same with some Platinium Rings which are LV70 craft till i get 68 i think so i can buy my body. but after that ill need to wait verry long to sell all thous rings and earings but when ill be done i will not lose alot money

    Now the qustion is what to do after that i didnt see anything that you can easy sell to get your money back and that till LV87 with Elemental Ors which are expensive yes but you can easy resell them.

    now the the prob is this interval 68-82 !!!

    i tought go farm moblins masks and mails to desint. them on gold ingot or maybe Gob Enchenter they drop all ingits ....

    anyone can say me if i can get easy HQ3 on Gobs stuffs? or maybe i should just farm and do BCs and trow away my noney till 82?

    EDIT: can a GS100+6 desint. platinium rings and earings easy?

    Desynths are never easy, once you get to the "level cap" for the desynth, it doesn't get any better even if you're 80 levels above them.

    Desynthing is never reliable. I do moblin stuff once in a while to try to make a few bucks.. Usually never works out for me though.

    Same here, desynthing should be saved for goods purchased from NPC's or things you farm yourself. I never came out ahead buying beastmen drops for gil.

    Ever so true. I was farming Soulflayer robes over the weekend to try and desynth them into some imperial silk cloth. 3 robes: 1 HQ (gave to ls members who needed them for BLU AF), 2 breaks. Thats with the desynth moghancement. Had overwhelming lightning element tho so that didn't apply. Yay unreliability

    I only desynth stuff when:


    I got the drops xping/whatever.

    OR

    I synthed a bunch of junk for skill (most times with a gold ingot) that I'll have no choice but to drop or NPC (heck, I got about 4 gold ingots total out of about 100-150 synths from this adventure as well as lots of iron ingots, etc, so, not a total waste of time).

    When I was doing my Muscle belt push for GS, I desynthed every single belt I got (no leveling HQs) but I did get a good # of gold ingots back when I did it.

    On average, I was getting 2-3 Ingots per stack of materials used. Sometimes more. Usually 2 though

    expect to lose about 20 mil of what you have getting from 68-82 if not more, depending on how lucky you are.

    You're about to enter the worst stage of goldsmithing, 35 mil is a good start, but unless you're careful/smart about what/when you synth, you're going to lose most of it and have nothing left once you get past 82, which is by no means cheap itself.

    Beads are awesome, but a few breaks can really set you back.

    If you can break synth Moonring Blades and Gold Gauntlets, you may be able to offset the losses of GS Hell.

    Wizerd had a better leveling rate with his break synthing than I did with my non break synthing. Although you will lose more of the cheaper ingredients, it may be best for you in the long run.

    Wizerd and I were unsure if overwhelming fire energy in the mog house really helps as well but I believe its worth trying. (He used another WW mule to make teh cabinets to help bridge a level)

    I did the breaksynthing as well, i just went from 73-84 in the last few weeks.

    I didn't get a 1/4 skill up rate, nor did i ever get one level on just one stack of ingots. But it was a lot cheaper than it otherwise could have been, i lost probably about 10-15 mil from 73-81 when i started beads, and i've lost another 5 or so since then since i've been real unlucky with breaks, and i was giving my beads to my brother to try and make staves, and had a few unlucky runs there as well.

    But right now i'm sitting on 84.1 and just trying to build up some gil to make another run, selling my pallas bracelets to get into the 90's (assuming they sell, i have no idea what they are worth with all the prices falling lately).
