Crafters, have any of you gotten a +3 item on a HQ hand synth yet? I would like to be able to add the +3 item to a recipe once I know which hand is the HQ, but I haven't had anyone confirm a +3 item in a synth. I'd like to assume it is possible, but wanted to ask first anyway.

It took me 5 or six times to fully figure out what your asking because I kept getting caught up on all the talk about main and offhand.

So your really just asking, in simplest terms, can anyone confirm a +3 synth?

Yes!

Basically, one hand will give HQ items while the other will give + QTY. Each synth seems to have a different set of which hand gives what type of HQ.

For example:

http://ffxiv.zam.com/en/recipe.html?ffxivrecipe=1042

I'd like to be able to "complete" the recipe by confirming I can put HQ3 Secondary Hand as 3 Dawn Drops +3.

I can confirm Main hand 1 straw 1 rope = +1 +2 +3 belt, I've gotten them all (How worthless lol)

And I know that for one of the lumbers, the +3 HQ is like 12x +1 lumbers, or something weird, so they might not all follow the same pattern

Hmm, not sure I get the lumber thing. Can you elaborate?

Primary = 3, 6, 9, 12 +1
Secondary = 3, 3 +1, 3 +2, 3 +3

Like that?

I wasn't the crafter, I just witnessed it, I don't have any information but I'd suspect it was something like

3 +0, 6 +0, 9 +0, 12 +1.

Just saying that it might not always follow the strict pattern of 3 6 9 12 +0s, and 3 +1 +2 +3.

Hmm, so I guess the question is whether that 12 +1 was from the QTY hand or the HQ hand.

well lumber is synthed in 4's, so it would be 4, 8, 12, and 12+1s perhaps.

I made a Harpoon +3 mainhand, though I was 15 ranks above YG's optimal skill level. The most for lumber has been 8 on a willow log.

With my main hand (saw) and willow logs I have gotten:

Willow Lumber x 4
Willow Lumber x 8
Willow Lumber x 12
Willow Lumber x 4 + 1
Willow Lumber x 12 + 1
Willow Lumber x 4 + 2

so, HQ3 isn't quite all there is for some synths.

Sorry. I almost hope you can't verify it, although it is 100% true and someone eventually will. :(

Also, just for the record, I currently wear a Willow Mask + 3 when I'm on my PGL. Also made with my main hand - although the + 3 was gained during a Touch Up, if that helps.

I guess I'll see if I can do the same on maple logs.

I would recreate them and put them in my retainers bazaar so someone could verify it but the price of shards is so bad atm that I can't justify the expenditure. I never did it on maple logs, but I would assume that you can, if only because it would be very strange for lumbers to have different HQ tables.

When you use the abbreviation "QTY" are you referring to quantity or quality? I suppose HQ refers to High Quality but I'm not 100% sure on that either.
