Check that thread out, maybe you'll learn something.
Fine. Ignore it all, I could care less if your just another sub-par crafter.
But just for yucks...prove me wrong. Prove me wrong and I will PayPal you $100.00 US, no questions asked. You know why i can offer to do that? Because you can't. It's already proven to be the case. All the high level crafters know it, because we've all had to do a rediculous amount of the same synths to get where we are. Do we have time to parse every synth? No. We are too busy making all the gear and ingredients and items that only 2-3 people on a server can make, because we actually know what we are doing, and we do it the best.
Everyone who is a serious crafter, knows this already. The problem is some people are casual crafters who just dont care if they are good at thier craft. Just because you dont synth enough to notice the effect doesnt mean it doesnt exist.
Sorry to say, but you don't see noobs testing thoeries, you don't see noobs writing guides. You don't see noobs being one of the highest ranking people in thier class.
Am I an elitist? Yes, and darn proud of it. You don't become the best by being an ignorant noob. Try learning from someone with more experience than you obviously have instead of insulting the people who are obviously trying to help out the ones who don't know as much.
And if you don't want to become a better player, then get the **** out of the forums.
Learn some japanese, use google, talk to the highest ranking crafters on your server. We already know whats going on. While people complain about failing synths and it being too hard or random, we are getting success where uninformed people would fail everytime.
Yes, because having several crafts all low level makes you a good crafter. Ranking up from 1-20 so mindless. You can ignore everything and standard spam your way there.
Yes, and you will continue to be a sub-par crafter, while the people who know what they are doing constantly stay 2 steps ahead of you. Then you'll realize i was right all along and feel like a idiot for arguing with me about it.
Wow, where does one even begin? Honestly, you should be ashamed without me saying a word after looking at your posts. To put it nicely, that's a lot
of hubris in a little Lalafell package.
It's laughable how you think 1 to 20 is "mindless," yet somehow at 30 it's so different? It's not, and I'm not someone you can shake that weak "you're inexperianced" line at, as if anything I've crafted more than you have. Christ you're fond of yourself for synthing @#%^ing Maple Syrup.
Connected to that is your idea that you're somehow "the best," or on your way to being "the best." First of all, higher rank does not necessarily equate to being a better player. Secondly, as I've already alluded to, being around R30 at the moment is not as exclusive as you'd like to believe.
In summary, folks: Being a R20 crafter doesn't make you a "good crafter," but being R30 probably does. That, and StateAlchemist is the best!
This is the most pompous stuff I've read on the XIV forums so far, so congrats on that. Good luck with your elite Maple Sap there, killer. Edited, Oct 30th 2010 8:39pm by Coyohma
