Aye, I ended up just sticking to leather for the time being, though once it hits 21, its back to goldsmithing. My biggest complaint about crafting is the asinine levels you need to be to make materials for synths that are level one. I have yet found any one selling iron spikes so I can make sheepskin calligae, yet I did find someone the other night with calligae for sale ><

Right now I'm doing Mining to compliment the craft I'm planning on doing which is Smithing and maybe Armorer. But after going through this thread thinking I should switch to harvester and Woodworking since it seems like no one is taking that up.

Can someone hook me up with a fucking sword? I've been using my god damn noob weapon since the start of the game.

I was able to buy a shield from a bazaar, but I still have the basic starter gladius. beigerolleyes.gif

I dunno about you guys, but the whole crafting system has had me pretty confused. Colors? Sparks? Off-hand tools?

Until recently I'd just been spamming "standard synth" and hoped for the best, but this guide about the crafting mini game kind of cleared things up for me, and I've been a LOT more successful.
QUOTE
Crafting Mini Game:

The objective is to hit 100% progress before your progress gets to 0.

You have 4 options (you need to make a choice before bar expires or you lose durability):
Standard Synthesis = Normal progression/quality gain. Primarily uses this for skillup.
Rapid Synthesis = Forgo quality (0 or very low) for high progress gain (up to 30% without skill), high chance to unstablize the crafting (cause spark). Best not to spam it, and put in plenty of wait before or after so you don't spark the orb.
Bold Synthesis = Forgo progress (very low gain) for quality
Wait = not do anything, reset bar and potentially change orb colour. Cost 1 Durability + 1 for each additional wait. Use this during unfavorable condition. I wait anywere from 1-3 times in a row. You will use this a lot too.
Touch Up Available after you reach 100% on finished product, allow you to reroll a result to see if you can get HQ (+1), HIGH chance of disaster on consecutive use. Not recommended when below 35 durability.

The prompt bar (above the 4 actions) has NO IMPACT on your progress, so you don't need to wait for a certain length to click it.

Orb Condition:

Yellow = High Success for Normal/Bold, chance to consume no durability on normal
White = Normal success rate
Red = High Risk, but possible to reward more quality points on success. Might be worthwhile for HQ synth. [Source: SE]
Flashing Orb = Roulette, use at your own risk (I usually wait 1-3 times on these)
Sparks = unstable, thus increase risk and reduce success chance
Large Ring = HIGHLY Unstable, causes quality and durability damage on fail. (best to wait..., but I have waited up to 5 times and it still stay unstable... so if you get a solid yellow/white, try to use a normal synthesis and hope it goes away)


For me personally, I'm only crafting to gain exp right now. So for me basically i'm only doing standard on yellow or gold orbs, then waiting on everything else. If i've waited over 3 times on a flashing (random) orbs then i just go for standard and hope for the best.

I'm looking to follow HC82's advice and get some crafting clothes too, since the level 10 levequests are getting a little hairy. Can anyone on here make them, or know a NPC to get them from?

I've got some spare crafting gear Crush, since I just upgraded mine recently. Also I have some decent weavery skill to create the hempen-line of "Crafting" Armor set. When I made my set it helped me out with my higher level crafting quests.

Also, if you're crafting skills is over level 7, consider investing in the level 7 crafting weapon or the level 12 crafting weapon. It should be easy to find on the market. It more then doubles your crafting skill points and pretty much makes or breaks your progression in crafting
