Yep. That's why I keep 'em. I just realized my +3 ones were a waste ^.^/
Anyway, as Kenage so politely phrases it, I tend to be a little... "sharp".
(I actually like the ring of that, hahaha!). There are a bunch of very interesting
solutions in this thread though (repair kits! Wow!), so my rage evidently wasn't in
My personal little problem may point out a bigger issue, though; the whole economy
in FFXIV is based on the implicit assumption that there is "many" of most things, and "at
least one" of virtually all (only like this such vast trees of interdependence as this
one are possible: http://ffxiv.yg.com/recipe/leather-leggings-green?id=2291
A very interesting system, mind you; it's inherent danger is just that, once a single
point of the chain is missing (like: noone supplies material A needed in step X), the
whole process comes to a screeching halt. And with server populations shrinking (and
the general stupidity of hiding items in retainer-zombie-wards) the likelihood of that
problem arising becomes proportionally larger.
...do I make myself understood? I just (luckily) happened to be at the end of the
chain (so noone else was affected). But imagine I was one of the few crafters supplying
material A, and my crafting tool remained broken?
BTW: I did get my stuff repaired, later. Nonetheless I didn't like what happened at all. Edited, Nov 19th 2010 11:24am by Rinsui
