If you're planning to have one synthed, keep in mind buying a preset number of synths isn't always proper with shield enchantment, you'll likely run out of some mats well before others and have to restock mats as you go. Plan to have to do that, or get a mismatched chunk of mats back at the end.
Yeah I want two necks synthed, with similar mats. One is prio, the other is luxury. I'll focus on getting enough mats for getting HQ2 on the one I want, and use any leftovers (with due additons) to attempt the second.

I just wanted to get a rough idea of the amount of synth attempt mats I should aim to gather before I bother him.


Thanks a lot for the provided data!

What is the proper etiquette for having someone craft something? For instance, I'd like a piety wand / asclepius. If I provide mats the shield enchantment guarantees hq1 if successful right? What's the proper tip / fee? What's the proper tip if hq2 is actually made given there is no real market value of asclepius yet?

Is anyone on asura available to do this synth for me?

Thank you!
People who have been synthing for me are somewhat close friends, so I'm not sure it would be the same for someone you barely know.
Best answer to your question would be: be polite and ask them!

I guess it kinda depends on the recipe and how hard it is. Normally I leave any leftover mat or additional HQs to the crafter, once I'm done with getting what I wanted.
That way I get what I wanted saving a lot of gil but at the same time they also get something that's not completely irrelevant for them to keep.

It was my choice though, my way of saying "hey dude, I'm really really thankful for what you've done to me!"
They never asked or demanded anything in return, if I wanted I could've probably given them absolutely nothing. It just didn't feel "right" to me.
Unless it was a matter of doing mutual favours to each other, but that wasn't the case because I couldn't really do anything for them no matter how much I wanted.

Think etiquette is completely determined by the crafter's attitude and your relationship with them.

I would generally tell a stranger to pay my asking price for the completed product and keep their mats, or reduce the item's price by the AH value of the mats. Why should they get something for mat cost that can be sold for much more? The shield costs ~2bil that can take quite a while to earn back with today's slim margins. Plus, you don't want people who can't even synth the items driving up the AH price of your mats because it's a one time purchase to them, while you might be synthing another 50 of them.

If it's an item that's otherwise unavailable, I'd say a reasonable tip is 10% of the finished product's value, or half the difference between mats and AH price. You shouldn't be stepping on anyone's market in that case, and you might even be alerting them to another potential revenue stream.

Totally different story if it's a friend, will synth most things for mats and refuse compensation. If they want me to use multiple enchantment charges and spend a few hours doing batches, I'd probably trade favors or ask for a bit of gil since it's taking a meaningful amount of my time.

If you have Idris Indi-Haste and HM (+4) and VM (+8)... even if you are Slowed will you still have capped Haste?

Wondering about Kei. I asked Ejin about doing it on SAM and he said Embrava negates Slow but I am wondering for without SCH.

Does iLvl factor in to how much damage you take (level correction)?

For example a BST pulling dragons at portal 2 in Escha Zi'tah wearing Kaidate (iLvl 109) and Killer Shortbow (no iLvl) has an iLvl lower than 119. Will this increase damage taken by these mobs because of lower iLvl or are the defensive stats on the gear, not iLvl, the only thing that matters?

The simple answer, for the player themselves at least, is that it's entirely based on the stats on the gear.

The con of the mob will change based on your item level, and Trusts will scale according to it. You're just getting the benefits of the listed stats.

Additionally, main/sub/ranged only takes into account your highest ilevel item in those slots. So for your example there, if you're wearing an i119 axe (and armor) then your item level is still i119, despite what your shield/bow are.

For most weapons, the only defensive aspect you might lose is the parry/guard/whatever bonus, which wouldn't tend to be applicable to pulling (need to be engaged, or have things in front, etc).

The reverse is also true, where you can have armor (Argosy for instance) that's i119, but offers little of the normal defensive benefits, effectively leaving you vulnerable compared to other options.

Also consider that the cumulative Gifts on a Mastered job can often give a significant bump to defenses, but are not reflected at all in the item level rating.
In addition, high level areas such as Adoulin and Escha areas, don't do level correction (at least, they don't do it for us attacking mobs).

It's only usually important to focus on that item level number if trying to keep Trusts at their potential.

To add to the above about level correction doesn't exist in basically any zone you'd find a mob with level decently higher than 100 (like escha) and for mobs level correction is only a benefit to them so only matters how much higher than you they are

I know this question gets asked often so sorry but,

Run+Geo Vs Blu+Geo as far as multi boxing setups go? mainly basing it around low man non party play, as most things I do only include me and (sometimes) a friend I play with.

How does your answer change if you add a BRD or COR third box to the scenario?

Other relevant information is that the friend has paladin, samurai and summoner, Geo has idris and Run or blu would eventually have the necessary REMA weapons. Blu is probably my favorite job, But I like run as well, and for any other considerations War and cor closely follow.

I'd think some of that will depend on content.

Personally, I have both BLU and RUN set up decently, and usually have my other accounts on GEO + BRD or COR. I'd generally favor using BLU as it's a lot more self-reliant and flexible (and likely outputs better damage on average). If things are just really not favorable for it though, getting out of AoE range with SCH, or being able to better stand in it with RUN are handy.

Hi.

Im planning on leveling some mules to 99 for extra orbs.

What would be a fastest route? Straigth burning in the first camp available or spending some time to collect rov kis/get new access?

Thanks in advance

No point bothering to collect the KI just wasted time tbh

You don't want to do missions dozens of times... it's firmly in the "not fun" category. Getting the first one from ROV 1-6 might be slightly faster but I don't think it's worth the effort if you're just going to cleave them to 99.

have any of you managed to kill the craver solo (single account) with a melee?

Which trusts? Just wrecks mp with AOEs, thinking Selhteus is a must?

I know its (very) easy to 2box, but you get half the Detretus that way.

I did as BLU and relying on Sanguine Blade sometimes when HP got low. In hybrid gear you shouldn't need it often with cocoon, barrier tusk, and MG up. I've got Tizona too so the fight of attrition won't be easily lost. It was more a race against time so if your HP is good stick to doing CDCs

well you'll want at least escha Zitha to not make it too painfull (if you can find a free camp, that is) and for maat you'll want trust access there. it's totaly worth spending 1 or 2h moving around and doing up to rank 3 nation, trust unlock and basic RoV untill you get the on ki that allows trust for maat fight. beyond that, dont bother. also pick up easy jobs like war or mnk (get testimony easily along the way when you do the lv cap quest)

between the lv cap quest anyway you'll have to run around a lot so doing a bit of extra to get mission/trust isnt a lot longer.
reminder : mission 2-3 fight is uncapped. also your mule/alt can die when poping the red monkey in qufim, it still count if you kill it.

or you could use sword and do red lots/burning to shining/seraph back and forth for unlimited liquefaction and scission.

granted you get TP fast enough of course. gives you mroe acc with an ilv sword than the quint spear, should you be short on it.
