    Hawker's Knife HQ Rate

    Just wondering what anyone else's HQ rate on Hawker's Knives are.
    I'm currently ~0/12 and no luck since (all 100% moonphase too).

  2. #2

    ~6%

    Its T1 sooo 5-10% from what I can tell. I went 0/7 and gave up, at 150-200k a synth and HQ sells for 900k its completely not worth it. At least on my server

    OP asked for people's HQ rates and Aurik answered exactly as requested. There's not even any lines to read between.

    Aye I see now that I quoted the wrong person. I meant to quote the guy who said its tier1 so 5-10% sorry about that

    6% is the best estimate.... I think I went 0/9, however i've had some good luck w/ cursed synths. I had somene craft wlegs and wfeet 2/12 HQ on both. Most synths lately are just "luck" or you lose gil

    think i went 2/12 on them, really not worth it unless you are trying to sign them for someone.

    We all agree that 12 synths is a big enough sample, thanks for your valuable input

    Back on topic, friend says he's 13/203, that's ~6.4%

    I'd take up that tier 1 isn't 10% arguement. From personal experience anyways.

    well I'm putting my vote in the "tier1 is 10% hq" box, but ya I understand that the bad luck on tier1 comes in streaks, as well as the good luck.

    I agree w/ the 10% seeing as when you are lucky u can go 2/12 on alot of synths... Its happened to me 3x at least on a T1.

    I am 17% 8/47 on cursed greaves -1, but I guess if I did 3000 hawkers and 3000 greaves eventually they would even out statistically.

    Still waiting for my good luck streak.

    I've gone on a 0/90 streak, but I have never done better than 1/12 on tier 1. Never. Hell, most times I won't even do better than 1/24

    Currently my Tier 1 synths sit at 12/290 which is ~4.1%
    and my tier 0 sits at 1/45 which is ~2.2%. (Most of these recorded since hitting 99, didn't really attempt big money synths before then)

    Granted, compared to most old school crafters,a paltry 290/45 synths may not be a vast enough pool to judge from. But I would need some insanely good luck, for me to catch up to this 10% mark.

    long long time ago i went 1/4 on this synth, but that was pre-ranger nerf so they pretty much useless now. but from what i coudl gather 10% was the chance.
