life skills are so much easier when you have friends to help
Got to r8 Weaving earlier this week. All the thin threads I'd saved up since rC (about 90-100, I believe?), coupled with my r7 fragmentation took me to 16 points, which was actually better than I anticipated. Considering that I anticipated on average one finest per 10 thin thread stacks from the initial 90-100, this means my returns after continually regurgitating silks through fragmentation are actually at least 60% higher than the intended goal. I still think r8 is easier to do than ranks A or D. Why? Because cobwebs will always be less of a hassle to collect than wools. Always. ALWAYS. I chose to save my thin threads for r8 than burn through D or A when fabrics which I will be able to ignore fully after rA (except for master title) could also get the job done. Even if I have to collect 10,000 of them I'd rather do that than gather even a third that amount in wool. Did I mention I hate wool?
Oh, and r7 fragmentation is sex. Once I get to r6, I'll even be able to fragment all those godforsaken mythril ingots from my Refining days and give the materials to my friend's character who I've been training up since he fell off of Mabi. Hopefully he'll return one day.
