    Your base chance to make a blacksmithing item is 0.2% per 0.1 skill beyond the point where it claims you can start making them.

    Your chance to make an item exceptional, for skill under 95, is chance to make normally -60% (without a talisman, but does include ASH).
    At 100+ the exceptional chance is normal chance - 45%.
    Between 95 & 100, as an artifact of the pre-powerscroll system, the exceptional chance gets an additional +0.3% per 0.1 skill gained between the two points (creating the difference between the under 95 and over 100 amounts).

    Adding a talisman:

    A Talisman WILL NOT give you a chance to make something normally, if your unmodified normal chance is 0%

    A Talisman's normal Crafting Bonus DOES NOT MODIFY the Exceptional chance.

    A Talisman's Exceptional Bonus does add to the number for the exceptional bonus, even if the exceptional chance would normally be negative. As a result, at 55% normal chance (where you would be -5% chance of success), a talisman with an 18% exceptional bonus will give you a 13% chance to make exceptional.

    Are u using the correct talisman? for example: the carpentry one does not work for masonry(stone crafting), even though masonry is considered an off shoot of carpentry

    if so, perhaps u could post ur skill level, tali type and chances , and what item u r trying to make(and chances to make).
