To note tho, we just got the ability to list prices for +1, +2, and +3 individually instead of a range, but the upper range numbers were wiped. So, we probably won't have the upper range sale prices again until someone else comments on the page or decides to add it.

I have to rant. I don't like ranting on forums but I feel this issue seriously needs to be addressed. I'm reposting what I posted from a topic in the Carpentry forum where the issue was brought to my attention:

Spikido wrote:
Keep in mind... All crafts are labeled as 11 since Zam doesn't have any specific level information. All we know is that it's 11-20 from SE's site.

So for all we know, it could be level 20. Hopefully we find out soon.


Thank you so much for this info. Zam has now made me waste at least 40k trying to make stuff listed at rank 11. I was under the assumption that they knew somehow that it was indeed rank 11, not that they were merely listing it as the lowest possible assumption. This is such falseness and I am frustrated.

If they aren't sure of a LARGE level range between 11-20 (that is a BIG gap!) then post it as either 11-20 or 20! Don't under guess it falsely implying to your reader base that it is 11 when you have no idea what it is between a large 9 level gap.

I would have never known this if I hadn't come to the forums and saw this post out of the blue. I was frustrated with two different rank 11 crafts and came here to see if anyone was having trouble with the same ones. I'm sure the thousands of people who use the database but not forums are wasting their time/rescources thinking they are high enough since one of the biggest sites are listing it as rank 11, when in fact Zam has no idea what level it actually is. ///endqoute///

Or even list it as - as an unknown rank. Stating something as 11 when you have no idea is just really, really bad imo. I'm annoyed I wasted so much time/rescources on something that I thought was 3 levels lower than my rank, when in fact it was probably 5+ levels higher.


Also, on a different note, how do we add the prices that vendors pay for an item? Just as a comment on the item's page? Or somewhere else that's specific for that?

And also, when I click an item on the recipe list, it takes me to a page listing the materials, then I have to click the completed item link on that page to see comments, what its an ingredient in, etc. That really seems like an unecessary extra click/load.

I'm very sorry, PinkMermaid. When we did the recipe lists based off of Lodestone, we mistakenly thought that people would look at the list and understand that there weren't scads and scads of recipes in the 11 rank with nothing above it. =\ I just finished going through Weaving and that took quite some time, but I'll be continuing with carpentry today. It's a short list, so hopefully I'll have it done today, but a lot will probably end up unknown since Lodestone doesn't have a lot of wood recipes to begin with.

Thanks Pikko. I think until a general rank is confirmed by someone that having it as either rank 11-20 or unknown is better than 11. I really did get confused, doubt I'm the only one. Really glad you're taking the time to change it though.

Nice! Text + Icons woot. Can we get facilities listed too? Facilities + skills required to craft each recipe should be listed somewhere, it gives you a greater idea of the difficulty or whether you need to actually go to your guild hall just to get the guild specific facility.

Trying to craft something that is rated as rank 15 at the same rank as your crafting level without having the recommendation diminishes the chances of success. This is why things like the Copper Rings or Brass Rings (which don't require the facilities or any special skills) can be created easily 5 levels under and reward staggering amounts of SP making goldsmithing easy to level.

A very good primary example of this is this link here for bronze wire. I posted this link because I want you guys to read the comments tab.

http://ffxiv.yg.com/item/bronze-wire?id=10002041

A level 23 armorer is failing this. And the reason is simple. He isn't using the guild facility which is a recommendation and might as well be a requirement to actually crafting it successfully. I think it's important to list this in the recipe for this very reason, it doesn't seem to be public knowledge but it should be by anyone that has a clue in crafting.

This also means some of the recipes currently listed on ZAM due to having an influx of comments/input from crafters who don't understand the system are posting higher ranks necessary than really required. But I guess in any case, it's better to overestimate than underestimate the difficulty of these (less angry feedback :P).


PS. I can make that wire on my level 10 Armorer with the guild facility no problem.

I found out where a camp is by wondering around and somehow not dying from a bunch of reds. Don't know where exactly where to post info about it. Also, I don't know how to take screen shots in-game. :| Since I looked at the "Zones>Outdoors>Thanalan" and saw no camps I wanted to contribute the camp site location but as I said, I don't know if this is the place and not sure how to snap shot the game. Or should I even bother? By the way the camp is called Blue Fog camp or something like that. Sorry if I'm changing the subject.

It is already there, see this one
http://ffxiv.zam.com/en/recipe.html?ffxivrecipe=1183
Check the box on the righthand side.

If you see a recipie missing information post a comment, and it will get updated when they go through them.

I really like the way it looks now, saves time not having to scroll over the ingredient pics while still looking nice having the pics. The recipe for Plumed Bronze Hatchet dissapeared also. I search hatchet as result and it doesn't show any plumed ones, just thought I'd mention that.

And about required ranks, maybe it would help alot if people also mentioned how much experience they get and at what level, to help determine the level (just commenting on the person who gave a link a few posts up).

Not sure if this has been mentioned, but in the DB if there is more than one page of info on something the sort function only sorts the page you are on, not all the pages regarding the items you are looking at.

Ok so apparently the column sorting thing is intended to be for just the page. If you want the whole list sorted by that particular thing, please use the filter instead. (Order By)

Hmm, I have a suggestion though I don't know how feasable it is. Is it possible to 'favourite' an item or a recipie? I mostly use the zam database as a resource for crafting and don't tend to write things down. On occasion I have seen something in a stall that I would like and look it up to see if I could craft it, either now or in the future, but I sometimes forget what the item is later on when I have leveled enough to make the item. So a way to follow the items so I can look them up later could be handy.

Just thought of something, while rather minor, would actually help a lot for quick reference. On all item pages, we have the recipe to make that. All things are covered except the need of different facilities. I know it is listed on the recipe page itself, but would be nice for quick reference.

*edit* nvm, skimming a post is not a good way to check is something has already been posted. I feel like an idiot haha

NPC sale prices:
----------------
HQs are sold at a fixed mark-up from the NQ.
+1 sells for +10% of NQ.
+2 sells for +25% of NQ.
+3 sells for +50% of NQ.
Numbers are rounded down. So you only need the NQ sale price.
Some examples:
* Moko Grass sells for 50/55/62/75.
* Iron Ore sells for 260/286/325/390.

Local leve bonus rewards
------------------------
Local leves have bonus rewards if you score 100+ rating.
What I found was that the bonus reward is always the same across all leves for a craft, if the normal reward is the same.
Some examples:
* If the reward is Moko Grass x3, the 100+ bonus reward is Hempen Fent x10.
* If the reward is Sheepskin x2, the 100+ bonus reward is Mole Sinew Cord x5.
* If the reward is Copper Ingot x3, the 100+ bonus reward is Soiled Femur x1.

Also, the bonus reward seems to multiply for every 100 rating, so if your rating is 200+ you get 2x the bonus reward. I only confirmed this for Sheepskin x2 though, so perhaps other leve rewards follow a different pattern.

On Mob location in the Zones, could more information. Instead of "La Noscea" can it be narrowed down more like say "Western La Noscea, Camp Skull Valley" or would that require too much changes?

Also, how do we put the small pins on the maps and can they be different colors for different things?

Something seems to be off with the editing of comment in the Database to post, if I try to edit one of my post it takes me back to the front page of the Zone description.

Okay more descriptive
I am trying to edit a post I made in the Black Shroud Comments.
There is an Edit Post at the top of my post, if I click that it takes me to the Wiki View page for Black Shroud. If I click on the Comments and got to the bottom there is an Edit Message, click that and it again returns tot he Wiki View page for Black Shroud.

On the Items database, especially Armor some Items "Favor" certain classes. Could they be changed from ALL Classes to the classes they Favor to make Searching easier?

For existing items and recipes with changes, please comment on the current pages. For new items, recipes that have new items, etc, we will need to wait until rale returns from Thanksgiving weekend, probably Monday. Until then, you can keep commenting with changes. I'll start a thread for brand new recipes.

You might want to add a menu option for DATABASE > LEVES > FACTION LEVES like you have for Disciples of War & Magic right now. Or add a faction leve search option to the leve search page.

Also, new (or missing) leve:

Faction: Horn and Hand
Rank: Special Mission - Poaching the Poacher
Leve name: Unlike a Rolling Stone (100 credits)
Recommended classes: All Classes, Rank 20
Issuing Authority: Gridania Adventurer's Guild
Levequest Location: Camp Tranquil
Objectives: Collect the following: Virgin's Veil
Rewards:
* Marauder's Guild Marks x1920
* Cracked Shepherd's Belt x1

On the Item Search for food, using the Stat filter does not work. Ex: Setting it to Dexterity >=1 it shows nothing even though King Crab has a Dexterity +3.

Sorry for the double post. But in regards to the tool tips that show up, you will have to edit some of the ones for the new equipment that have a required rank instead of optional. For example the FFXIV item:Velveteen Coatee. It is required r28 so unequipable at lower ranks, something that isnt apparent when you view it.

I'm starting to notice a very consistent error on the bonus stats of various items. While all the actual values are correct, the stat itself is very consistently erroneously switched... like showing TP+32 instead of MP+32 or Magic Evasion Rate+5 instead of Magic Crit Rate+5.

I've been commenting on such items whenever I notice it, but I'm beginning to notice it's like this for almost every gear piece with bonus stats :S
