Anyone start running crafting tests as of late?

I mean in FFXI, crafting have many hidden features that SE never mention, include but not limit to:

Direction - crystal have different meaning in directions, success rate increase on direction or High quality results from it.

Day of the week - enchance crystal power or decrease it.

Moon phase - Increase crystal output and skill output by phases of the moon.

Maybe location already help too? (i mean when something doesn't attack you all suddenly XD.

refer to this for more FFXI crafting info:

Since there is a moon phase around the game, i bet there will be moon phase differences as well. Hope someone get us the details soon. Let's beat the japanese at their game.

I've done alot of crafting and I noticed that during new moon I have less synthesis fails and breaks than during full moon. Other than that...they might have implemented the "face the right direction" thing too since you can see the stars of the elements in the sky. I didn't notice a difference when facing different directions yet, so even if it is there it doesn't seem to make a big difference.

The rest seems to be only gear choice where control, mag. craftsmanship and craftsmanship is for crafting while output, perception and gathering is for, who would have though that, gathering classes.

To me it seems that crafting in FFXIV isn't as mysterious as it is in FFXI which is a good thing.
