Mass Production?Follow

Ok, this term has been bothering me for awhile. Ive had Maker's Muse (Lv. 10 Blacksmiths ability) since the first week of release... I still get confused by this term. When I think "Mass Production" I think of an assembly line making 1 item relatively quickly. So, in conjecture to this game, what does it really mean? Most effective for making parts, Armor, materials, or using Rapid Synth?

Anyone wanna take a guess? I feel like I should understand this. It seems to help no matter what I craft so its not a big deal. Just curious on what Square-Enix wanted it to mean.

I read this somewhere else (Although I'm sure I can't point it out now) but mass production refers to items that can stack. Anything stackable allows you to keep Maker's Muse going for 4 synths, while items that don't stack you get the standard 3.

Just like Preserve, you get 4 uses for any finished item, but 3 for parts.

PS: I hope I was right there..

I understand this to mean recipes that end in multiple products, i.e. cotton cloth that yeilds 3 pieces of cotton. I think you can eliminate the rapid synth idea as the ability states directly it's effective for standard synthesis.

This is correct. I had never noticed it myself before so after you posted this up, I went to try making a stackable item on my BSM. Iron Axe Butts stacks but you only produce 1 at the end result. Maker's Muse only got 3 uses. However when I synthed iron nuggets which are stackable but result in 12, I managed to get 4 uses of Maker's Muse.

Thanks for clearing that up for me too :)

most effective for making parts/mass productioin

there are certain items, that if you look at the loadstone, are labeled as "parts" and im sure makers muse gets more of a bonus off being used on them.
