I'm thinking this will get burred in the other threads i posted it in so here it is in it's own thread...

Last update screwed something up in the calculations so you are now getting an artificially high number of failures during synthesis.

For the moment, i'm just going to gather materials until it's addressed.

Regarding a Synthesis Issue (Sep. 29)

Thanks for the heads up. I did notice doing my leves yesterday that only the most basic recipes had a good success rate overall. Anything more than basic ingredients would fail pretty miserably.

I actually had not seen this but knew something funky was going on with crafting...
Had read a few post about people having problems but nothing official.

This is great to know, Maybe now I can make my Harpoon for Lancer without failing. :/

Not likely :/

I ******* knew it. I didnt want to whine about it because people would just say that I suck. Even though that still might be the case, I knew something was wrong.

harpoon is actually a pretty low level synth - the fish glue to make the blade and the blade itself are not, however.

It is nice to know that SE acknowledged it was buggy. An LS mate lost 100+ durability loss on a level 1 synth - when they are past level 10.

I bet they won't do rollbacks of all the shards and mats we lost though. Rollbacks only apply when the player gets ahead- not when they get screwed.

When it comes to sitting around not doing anything for long periods of time, only being active for short windows, and marginal changes and sidegrades I'd say FFXI players were the perfect choice for politicians.
