Does anyone really know what is meant by "magic craftsmanship" and how it differs from "craftsmanship"? In "Ask the Devs" they said that they affect "certain" recipes but without elaborating or giving examples (typical SE evasiveness). On another thread it was opined that craftsmanship refers to the main hand and magic craftsmanship to the offhand. But that really makes no sense to me at all.
I am currently assuming that magic craftsmanship helps in crafting items that have a magical component to them. This would include almost all armor since everthing seems to have at least some degree of elemental resistance, as well has such weapons as wands and scepters. But outside of mage weapons, I don't think there are any weapons that have any magical component to them (although I could be wrong, but that is beside the point). Therefore, I am ASSUMING that if one is making a weapon it would be wise to unequip crafting gear that only offered magic craftsmanship and replace it with something that had some degree of regular craftsmanship.
But like I said, this is only my guess. The problem with proving this is that it would be almost impossilble to do so, what with all the random busts that occur even when you are crafting something much lower than your rank. It would really be nice if the devs were more forthcoming on this question.
Does anyone else have opinions on this? Or, better yet, facts?
