Another Crafting Conundrum

Discussion in 'UHall' started by dsnchanted395, Feb 13, 2008.

  1. Ok so I have a 120 crafting mule. Her template is fairly common I'd think...
    120 Blacksmithy
    120 Tailoring
    100 Mining
    100 Tinkering
    100 Carpentry
    80 Arms Lore
    50.1 Music
    49.9 Magery

    My question or comment or rambling on is this...

    If she has a 100% of crafting the item and a 67% chance of crafting an exceptional... does the exceptional chance increase over time?

    And if she only has say a 75% chance of crafting an item (I'm thinking stone crafting here) will that also increase over time?

    Will there ever be 100% chance of crafting with a 100% exceptional chance? Can a crafter ever be as good as it gets? I'm looking for new goals ingame.. I'd like to say yeah I can make that.. or I've done that... and I have always wondered about the percentages... if there is a thread or link to it I'd appreciate a nudge in the right direction.

    If that is your character and thoses are her real skill level (your not still in training), then if you look at the percentages and it says 100% to craft and 67% to make exceptional, then the only way to increase your exceptional percentage is with talismans which add to that specific skill. talismans can have a 30% maximum to craft and/or 30% maximum to make exceptional.
    So for your example if you had 67% chance and you had/bought a 30% exceptional talisman thna you exceptional chance to make that item woudl be 97%.

    May I ask why you have music? I would think you would be far better off the raise arms lore to GM.
     
  4. Depending on the numbers.. ... yeah, theres a chance of hitting 100% on some items ... NOT all
    some ...

    Talisman shopping for the "perfect fit" to "do" exceptional work ...
    there ya go ...

    gonna take a legendary Smith, with the top end Ancient Smithy Hammer (ash)
    AND a max exceptional bonus on a talisman ... to clear the list to a few remaining "Unreachables" ...

    Same for the other crafters ...

    I would drop 20 points off music and take to arms lore to GM. When you have to make instruments use Jewelry/singing ax to get you to 45 music.

    Chance increase over time? Sure! If you spend that time increasing your skill.

    A legendary smith can make almost everything exceptional. Hold a +30 ASH and everything will be exceptional.

    You might get more responses (and your post will stay on the frontpage longer) if you post your question in the professional forums.

    [/ QUOTE ]Ahh, thx for the explanation. I guess I've never made an instrument. And I thought I had made everything possible. Odd.

    A true craftsman knows their craft ... a ring-honed ear just doesn't produce the same resonance from the wood, the same trill from the strings as the natural ear. Oh now I've had more than one musician tell me that they can't tell difference, but I disagree. Long live the musician-carpenters!
