Levecrafting with your own materialsFollow

I noticed it's possible to exchange leve-provided materials with your own items. For instance, you can change a bone chip(leve) into a bone chip +3.

You will lose the item, obviously, but the normal bonus to initial durability and quality still applies. Nothing like a 500+ quality item to boost appraisal score :D.

Obvious question here: What happens to the leve-provided material in such a case? Let's say I take a local leve that provides materials to produce four of an item. For the first item, I replace *all* of the leve-provided materials with my own. Does that mean that the leve-provided materials are still there for me to craft a fifth? My guess would be no, but I'll try testing it on some local leve that uses cheap materials.

Nice. Might have to mess with this using cheap mats that I have overwhelming my inventory.

Good stuff, thanks! This will definitely help close to gap to succeed on rank 20 levelquests that much earlier, too. Gogo guild marks!

Sweet! Thanks for the tip--I wish I had thought of this sooner, it seems so obvious. :)
