Glad you enjoyed it Samosamo. Indeed it was a lot of work, but with the vacuum of content over the past few months HQing gear has become a nice activity to fill the void so to say. Definitely a labor of love.

/blush thanks for the words of encouragement guys, it really means a lot.

Currently as i stated earlier, i'm working on a Part2 of synthesis, as well as planning to tackle Materia once it's out. So keep an eye out for those. Perhaps i'll do one on combat strats for rank up, but again i need to see how the changes in 1.18 affect whats going on.

Good work, one caveat is that Red Orb typically provides a greater boost to quality than White Orb, at the trade-off of lower success rate. I believe this was also stated by the devs when they did a small piece on crafting. This is also from my own personal and extensive crafting. In line with yours White gives the best success but lesser quality, gold tends to give moderate success and low-moderate quality (rarely crit-success) and red tends to give me the highest qualities. Red is typically the only orb I get consistent 50+ quality boost while using Sublimation or some quality enhancing ability with max stat.

Totally agree with you that i generalized the orb status, perhaps a little too much... Basically as i wrote the first one i wanted to think a lot about new crafters and their needs as well as more established crafters. So a lot of the article was going into specific facets without going way overboard with data, especially knowing that a part2 would be eventually done. Thanks for the info, i have a long list of things to go into for Part2 and orb status was going to be on there as a revist, but i'll certainly add in some greater explanations on the subtler points.

Well just a lil followup for you guys. Just found the most awesome place, and me and the misses are currently moving so guide 2 will come out a lil farther away then i had intended. Plus it seems 1.18 is coming out very soon, so ill include any changes to synthesis local leves etc, which means more time as well lol.
