As I simultaneously took down notes while dabbling in synthesis at the same time - a painstaking process no doubt - I came to observe that there seems to be some correlation between the quality of my successful crafts and the appraisal of an item (which should rightfully be the case) and that appraisals are bestowed at a constant rate. To prove my point, here are two examples:
Momodi's Cheap Chausses - Hempen Chausses (Brown)
I did not do pretty well here, having failed 2 synths out of 5, but really, it was nothing to be ashamed of for any rookie who does not know what to expect initially. With the successful 3 synths, these were the results:
1) Quality: 41 Appraisal: 8 2) Quality: 47 Appraisal: 9 3) Quality: 72 Appraisal: 14
What's interesting about this is, it would seem, that Ludovraint would offer me 1 appraisal point for every 5 quality points I get. I got 8 appraisal points for getting 41 quality points (in the range of 40-44); 9 appraisal points for getting 47 quality points (in the range of 45 - 49); 14 appraisal points for getting 72 quality points (in the range of 70 - 74). And the math adds up nicely!
Busier than the Blades - Hempen Shirt
With this other leve, I only had 4 chances to get the items right, which thankfully I managed to do so with more ease and experience now. And these were what I recorded:
1) Quality: 45 Appraisal: 11 2) Quality: 83 Appraisal: 20 3) Quality: 109 Appraisal: 27 4) Quality: 89 Appraisal: 22
Now, one could say that Aistrach is more the miser than Ludovraint in this case, for he offered me only 1 appraisal point for every 4 points in the quality of my garments. So it is, that he gave me 11 appraisal points for 45 quality points (falling in the range of 44 - 47); 20 appraisal points for 83 quality points (falling in the range of 80 - 83); 22 appraisal points for 89 quality points (falling in the range of 88 - 91); and 27 appraisal points for 109 quality points (falling in the range of 108 - 111).
I could draw 2 conclusions from this:
1) That Aistrach is truly the bigger miser of the two; or
2) That Hempen Shirts are easier to weave as compared to brown Hempen Chausses, hence the cheaper appraisals.
