When you're crafting a weapon, in this case the Celtic Tetra Cylinder, and it says 13% completion per attempt, how high can you rise that and through which means?
I know that being in a production party can raise it, but do certain titles, or the Patron Set affect it?
I'm just trying to roughly calculate how many more materials I'll need. At 13%, I'll need 8x materials but if I got it up to 20%/attempt, then I'd only need 5x. Which would be so much more affordable :D
Thanks in advance for replies, and I apologize if I didn't ask my question in the most efficient format. Words are hard.
So uhh, I have a really silly opinion-oriented question....
Say you're a human, and plan on making a giant or elf for the race exclusive features. Would you make it on your main account or another account?
If made on the main account, pets, items, gold, etc. are easily accessible, but you'll lose the opportunity of events excluded to a single character (like how the 8th anni fantasia title was, and weekend giveaways), and cannot carry the alt to power level yourself.
Although I know about elves, I'm pretty much clueless on giants, so here's a few more questions:
Any reason not to wear heavy armor as a giant?
Fanatic Greatsword or Knight Lance? (In terms of viability and cost of required enchants, specifically, 67th floor's enchant)
Any general tips for someone who knows close to nothing about giants?
Thanks in advance!

As for tips/general knowledge for Giant play:

*As usual train WM/Refining and those other CP/Stat reliant skills there are out there by now first before getting too high stats/levels
*No Archery Talent so there's no access to 2500+ Range attacks but Throwing Attack can effectively do over 10k crits when you're higher level but Giant mains typically wont use it in main contents unless needed (e.g. Blade Wyverns)
*Don't waste your time profing or enchanting a 1 Handed Sword. Giants hold all Two Handed Swords as one-handed so you get the Smash bonus along with access to 2H Wep enchants that 1H Swords don't have. Also despite its size Vales Great Sword is a 1H weapon
*Vales Shield is the only Large Shield so far in the game and using Defense with it causes almost every attack to do only 1 Damage to you, Defense doesn't cancel either against skills that knock you back and ignores Defense such as Fireball and Smash. Some exceptions to this is Girgashiy's Mineral Hail
*Giants can only dual wield blunt weapons. I believe the better ones to dual wield are Warhammers or Celtic Warhammers. Iron Maces are also a common choice but they cannot be special upgraded
*Giants can charge without needing a Shield
Other tidbits I may have missed can be found here.
1. Make it on your main, because pets are simply too good of get out of jail free cards to pass, and if you were to make a new account, you'd need to spam the hell out of saga just to get 6 free stun pets. The single character event shouldn't matter much because many items gained through single character events are bank transferable.

You're not using puppet for damage purposes so dex reduction doesn't matter as much. Attack speed only really benefits guns, and there are still many ways to get attack speed without using languhiris armor.
3. Fanatic Greatsword. Knight Lance isn't a relevant weapon anymore for anyone. Plus Fanatic Greatsword can still function well without 67th floor's
4. Just know about the upcoming Giant buffs, and gear up to fit those advantages. Not really different from playing any race.
Thank you guys!
Yeah, the giant renovation is one of my main reasons to start a melee oriented giant. It looks quite fun!
So I'm going to make a Silence/Girg Fanatic, and maybe a demonic for that good ol' 9 peircing judgement blade. The SAO enchant and the robe is out of my reach for now.

What is the most up-to-date """"Best"""" way to get Fine Leather?
Cramming Blacksmithing and no one is selling Fine Leather, and nothing drops it consistently or often enough to farm.
