Upcoming Crafting Fixes

    Hello Everyone,

    We have the following internal crafting fixes queued up for QA to review: (No promises of course. I had to say that [​IMG])

    - balanced property getting dropped off runic made lightweight shortbows,
    - mystic shortbow dropping the spell channeling -1

    Those two problems in general should no longer happen on any of the bows. They were the same issue where the static property was being added after the runic ones were already chosen.

    - Turned on the ability to make the following bows exceptional along with maker's mark:
    * barbed longbow
    * slayer longbow
    * frozen longbow
    * longbow of might
    * ranger's shortbow
    * lightweight shortbow
    * mystical shortbow
    * assassin's shortbow

    In order to allow for an exceptional chance greater than 0 at GM skill, the success rate and minimum fletching skill have been adjusted.
    Success rate is now 50% (use to be 40%).
    Min Fletching is now 70 (use to be 75).
    Exceptional Chance at GM is now 5% (use to be, of course, 0% and not possible).

    We wanted you to know that we are actively investigating and attempting to address some of the issues you all have presented to us.

    Thanks Everyone!

    faction crafting fixes!

    we can't bless armor we craft (not that we'd really want to at this point... so we should be able to faction bless already made items).

    Ok, so if you keep fixing all this stuff - I'm not going to have anything left to complain about. :p

    Thanks Leuro!! I think that addresses most of the list I had on Archery bugs.

    This is going to make the ML recipes much more interesting.

    Can't wait!!!

    Its not stacked properties. They don't stack on barb kits. The issue here is once again mage armor rolled and dropped on leather pieces.

    In another thread Leuro/Jeremy said they know about it and will address it. FINALLY!

    This has been broken for 3+ years. Nice to see it get fixed but I'm still holding my breath.
     
  18. Ok, My observation on this is you are boosting weapon making that does not include objects that need a warrior to get from the bosses. Way to go!!!! Allow the crafter to be a crafter and not make that ability to depend on a warrior or magic user or tamer class to obtain. Keep this up and you might actually bring back th CRAFTER!!!!!

    Isn't 5% exceptional chance at GM a little low? Nobody will actually use high end runics on making these even with a good talisman only 1 in 3 or 4 will be exceptional.

    Maybe not everyone, but there will be people.

    These bows give an additional mod.

    Imagine if you will.

    Light Weight Short Bow
    Balanced
    Hit Lightning (or Fireball) 50%
    Hit Velocity 50%
    Swing Speed Increase 40%
    Hit Chance Increase 25%
    Hit Lower Defense 50%
    Damage Increase 40%

    That is very much a possible (however unlikely) piece.

    These things give the items you craft a boost above and beyond what you can normally achieve, making them artifact level.

    These should be hard.

    WOOT!!

    I think I'm going to need to cut back on GHIII this weekend. My bowyer has been staring longingly at all the bloodwood, heartwood, scourage and eyes of travesty for sooooo long.

    Thanks Leurocian!!

    Aw crud. I just read the beginning of the post "queued up". Oh well back to Raining Blood for awhile.

    Such a bow is impossible to make, even a heartwood only gives 4 properties, DI and balanced coming from exceptional and the artifact bonus accounted for, you have 5 other properties listed.

    Also does anyone know if we will be able to use a talisman to bump the exceptional success rate on these bows?

    I'm curious how QA works now since the move. Is there still a core of the same group? Is it an all-new group? For that matter, is it just a different hat on Leurocian's head? [​IMG]

    I'm a fan of a predictable publish cycle so that people can fret about what elements do/don't make it as opposed to when the publish happens, but I don't know what the added overhead of each publish is that might drive them towards fewer, larger ones.

    You know, it would be pretty nice to add the balanced property to the properties list for two-handed carpenter weapons crafted with a runic saw. (I would absolutely love to eventually get an uber balanced quarter staff for my caveman character)

    Should add the balanced possibility to smith runic crafting of two-handers as well.

    It's just stupid that ONLY bows can get such a sought after mod.
