That is interesting.redwhitenblue wrote:Savacc wrote: In any event, getting three "amazings" should not result in a lessor product then only one "amazing". The system does not work that way, I have never had it happen to me and not heard of that from anyone else. I dont make a lot of the pumps, but have made lots of Crafting Stations. Did you say you are not lvl 90 yet? That might be part of the problem, if you are getting "fair" or "good" experimentation results. If you dont have the Expertise boxes that could do it too. If the problem persists after you are cl 90 and have the expertise, then its possible your character is "bugged". Let's hope that's not the case.
Actually Savacc I have had this happen to me numerous times when making Crafting Stations, and trust me I followed your guide to the T. I have tried mentioning this problem before and most everyone that I talk to tells me it's impossible but I have seen it with my own eyes. As best I can describe this is what happens: I use a ridiculously high CD copper (current copper is 995) and some gem or ore plus capped components made by UncleFester to make the initial craft. Then I experiment one box at a time in my research city and get multiple amazings ending in a craft that is less than 44.999992 and two experimentation points left over. I then take the exact same resources and components to a public crafting station to avoid the city bonus, drink port until I get a single amazing then finish off with great successes and end with a 44.999992 station and only one experimentation point unused. My observation is that too many amazings prevents one of the boxes from 'resetting'. I have not had this happen to me when crafting anything else on many different traders so maybe my character is bugged.
Does it still happen after GU12, using the non-bugged subcomponents?
Z, Andhi, 0nyx, Narf, have any of you seen or heard something like this before?
