In case anybody out there hasn't noticed yet, they have changed a few things for the better. When you do a local leve, you are now allowed 2 failure synths and can still pass the leve. In beta you were only allowed one failure. For example, you will recieve materials for 6 synths and need 4 successes. They also made leveling crafting classes, at least through leves, a lot faster. I did one local leather leve and got to level 4. In beta it would have taken me 2 or 3 leves to get to 4 if only leveling through leves.
