Off-Topic: This thread make me miss Advance Play... High Speed Gathering Potion but anyway...
The skill Refine also prove that Mabinogi calculation is wack. Ex: 20x@40% and no failure. Yeah, you get the point. :D
i must fail!!! to pass! gotta love refining well not really tis what im doing atm such a drag ugh but everyone tells me its the 1st life skill i should do
i left it as long as i could got c.m up to rank A and crit rank B lol havnt done anything else cept up healing to ranks woot eh
Refine got easier, simply because the mat price drop drastically compare to pre-G12
back then, frags were around 1k copper, 3k~4k iron, 6k~8k sliver, 4k~5k gold and mythril...
its like 800g copper, 1k~2k iron, 2k~3k silver, 1k gold and mythril
if ur funded (with G13 and their money making drops) most new players will find refine A LOT easier compare to what other experience player had to suffer through.
I'm so glad I gave up range. Means I don't have to rank weaving anymore. I have 270 base dex too, so I don't need weaving for balance. On the other hand...-is currently ranking carpentry- =_=
but u got a point. sometimes their're selling only gems, other time their're selling only ores. Then there those times there ur looking for that one type of frag but there isnt anyone selling >.>
it just shows that people are actively buying, and ur just unlucky to show up right when everything was bought out
Well, I suppose if you have a lot of money in the game, it's basically the luck that you can practically buy everything despite the people that are selling at ridiculous prices.
Carpentry can easily be cut short by buying certain woods to make other woods.
Weaving requires not much effort if you spam Walter's Part Time Jobs and buy certain materials that are really tedious to get, such as Wools.
Refine is pretty easy if you either get Metallurgy to Rank 5 at the minumum to gather 3 ores at once, or buying all the ores from central Ch1 Dunbarton. Either way, you'd still be either buying certain things, or spending things to rank up skills.
Things such as Tailoring and Blacksmithing are simply a quick buying of most of the materials, or rafting for the Iron ingots or so, and still using money to repair everything anyhow.
Kind of shows how easy it is to rank things as long as you have the money to do so, which is sort of just like the buying Nx for advantages.
