    I was so excited to make this new suit and was about to imbue the first piece with LMC, then quickly repeat on a few others. As the first property, it would have imbued with 100% success. Then I realized, "WAIT, I DIDN'T APPLY POWDER YET!"

    Messing up in PvP is recoverable. But messing up crafting something with millions worth of ingredients is an expensive lesson, and then consider I had to churn out a few hundred pieces to get one just right.

    yeah, well, I used to say I never do that kind of stupid mistake, but actually I just imbued the wrong mod on the only clean DCI20 gargish bracelet that I had, and now I'm mad :eek:

    I just made a suit out of Iron and then used a tool to enhance it all...only realising after that I hadn't reforged anything so it was all pointless :(

    I can sure sympathize with you guys on that.... Being a craftsman today is an overly difficult task, IMHO..
