Yes, looks like it can be taken to 100 with another 100 craft. Got a .2 on Platinum nuggets while at 60.
Sath, it was a full moon. ntrly.
Going by the ffxiclopedia drop rate, there was a 97% chance I should have gotten Fort torque before I did. It still happened to me though. There was an 85% chance I would not get two back to back. Improbability is not impossibility.
If you craft a lot, do not take improbable occurrances as proof that the system is not random until you can prove they occur more often than probability would predict.
Has anyone checked to see if more items/weapons were added to the synergy etch able list?
I'm gonna check my Corsair's Gun +1 later tonight...
What have other people been using for Smithing 73+? I might be spoiled from Darksteel Picks breaking even when sold to NPC, but scouring ffxiah.com I can't find anything remotely close to break-even that's within a decent craftable range (I tend to look no more than 8 levels above my craft so I don't break like hell with advanced support). Am I missing something? Or is this just gonna suck?
Well if you can't break even take less loss as possible. suggest those arrowheads that cap at 79 for starters, iron ingot=2700, the other thing is 4k (at least on my server).
Has there been an Ingot synth found for Phrygian Ore yet? I have several of these eating space and can't find a recipe from guilds or synergy.
I'm currently Alchemy lv100, with all subs 60.
Is it possible to be lv100 in all crafts but then Craftsman skill for all my subs? (stupid synergy) Or will some weird stuff happen and make me have to craft again?
Or even better, will +1 guild items result in Craftsman skill for Synergy if you're currently at Journeyman?
I'm looking to find the right craft for me.
Crafting is something I just never really got into in this game, but I'd like to take something to 100. Not necessarily for gil, not for HQs, not for signed gear, not really for ANY gear... I don't know... just so I can see something with three digits on my crafting page, really. Just so I can know I did that once. I've been playing this game since 2004, and I only just found a main job I truly fell in love with earlier this year. Now I'm hoping to find the right craft, too.
I was considering woodworking because I'd also eventually like to fish and level ranger, but I'm not enjoying the log -> lumber spam (currently @28 ), and aside from repairing Lu Shang's rods, I can't think of anything I'd EVER do with it.
I also attempted cooking at one point (currently @24), but the endless running around getting ingredients from regional vendors (in addition to the "well, that's under beastman control, I can't do that recipe easily" frustration) turned me off from that.
I see Alchemy kicked around a lot, but I leveled it to ~22 and just never got around to caring about it.
Bonecraft is out because my husband already has that at 100.
Any suggestions? I know I'm being difficult, and I know crafting itself is difficult and every craft has long rough/annoying stretches like log->lumber spam and 8-ingredient skillup recipes, but BG helped me find my true main and I'm hoping BG can help me find my true craft.
2) I have 60 smithing with the gloves, as far as synergy is concerned, it counts me as a journeyman since I never turned in the item for next rank up.
I haven't had a single T1 HQ with 106 + signboard + artisans advantage since the Abyssea patch.
Anyone else noticing a change in less HQ rates? Or is it just my stupid luck?
um.. i am thinking of going back to ffxi and been wondering is my craft gona get me some Gils or not?
In all seriousness, not trying to be mean or rude or sarcastic, but if you want to make money don't craft.
Shit's a money pit and there really are no profitable synths anymore due to the mass amount of 100 crafters undercutting and spamming synths.
Only thing I know of that's profitable really is fishing with cooking for sushi and such, or fishing with bonecraft for trumpet rings, or even just fishing because you can make gil by NPC'n the fish instead of selling on AH, meaning its impossible for some idiot to crash your market.
Your best bet would be do ISNM, ENM, BCNM, farm, just the usual bulshit.
unless your name is Zouri.. then the above statement is true.
New stuff tends to always be profitable normally too. Other than that, some really good luck,. or a LOT of repetition, crafting really tends to suck.
