Worth noting is that if you focus on quality when you're doing local levequests, the additional rewards you get for turning in the quest quite frequently include materials for making repairs with that DoH class. As an example, I did a bunch of clothcraft levequests yesterday. One was a rank 1 levequest and on of the bonus rewards was 10 Hempen Fent. I also did a rank 5 clothcraft leve and one of the bonus rewards was 10 Velveteen Fent (at first glance, I thought the NPC gave me processed cheese until I read it closer).
It's the same with the other DoH class levequests. Blacksmithing levequests often give bonus items like bronze nuggets, etc. It's good for the player wanting to repair their own gear and it's good for the crafter in providing mats they need to provide repairs for others. (And it's part of the reason I'm trying to balance being overbearing with debunking crafting "strategies" that involve spamming Rapid Synthesis and producing low quality junk that doesn't earn the bonus rewards.)
Hey I like my spam rapid strategy! Though I've been tweaking it lately and don't use it at all on easier synths. Now I go rapid twice to start, if both succeed I should be well ahead of the game, then I go bold/standard the rest of the way unless I get into trouble, then back to rapid.
Synths I know are easy I may reverse that strategy and only use rapid if it starts looking bad.
As for the bonus, I spammed rapid all the way on a level1 weaving synth and still got the 10 hempen fents...
Edit-nevermind on that = P That was a leve where fents were the normal prize, I see what you're talking about with the bonus now.
Good to know about the velveteen fent though, that's needed for some of the higher level gear I got from leves tonight... Edited, Sep 15th 2010 7:25am by TwistedOwl
