Ironically, I find r8 Weaving MUCH easier than rA. I hated getting thick threads so much, and thin threads are infinitely easier to get imo. Currentl around 85 prof on r8 Weaving. I work on it bit by bit on Mondays only. I'll be r7 eventually...
It's more effiicient to hold off on skills for Production Day though, because the materials makes me feel lazy to do the skills sometimes if I continously fail them.
I'm only r7 refine with 178 dex
+being broke doesn't help
You Learn From Your Mistakes
Do NOT get me started with r8 weaving. Oh my freaking god. I spent Over 3M on buying Thin Threads. I'm glad I did it though :v
I would rather repeat r8 Weaving twice even if it takes much longer to clear that rank, knowing that I can clear my bags and get a ton of mats ready for it, than repeat rank D weaving once and have to make constant return trips to the most uncooperative sheep on the planet. Sure, you can stock up on wool pouches, but you still have to do enough shearing to fill them all, and if you don't have a pet specifically designed to hold your overabundance of wool pouches, instead being forced to hold them in your current inventory, then you have to weave them one stack at a time. It's maddening. I'm about ready to feed every sheep I see to the nearest dire wolf. >.<
I am still stuck on the rank A of weaving :/ I don't have a wolf pet to get sheep stuck, and spiders drive me crazy. Seriously not looking forward to rank 8 T-T
