I like how I have some control over the outcome of my synthesis.
You clearly don't have any crafts leveled past 20, or crafting gear, or any idea how the system works.
Partway true, only rank 18 Goldsmith atm, rank 17 Weaver and rest aprt from armorcraft (8) and culinarist(0) at 10 or above, so no, i have no crafts at 20.
I do have crafting gear though (not the best i admit, Craftsmanship 38, Magical Craftsmanship 31 and control 26.
And after having had 8 failures, in a row, at a synth i have been doing pretty consistently for 3 ranks (and 24 times succesfully in a row, just before the string of failures), while using preserve and maker's muse, i don't really feel like i'm in much of control of wether or not my synths succeed or not.
I do admit i don´t really get the system, and from what i've read from the forums and heard in the game, neither does anyone else (and by get the system, i mean cold hard facts, not suspicions and untested hypotheses).
