    That is some bad luck. That line is barely even a platinum line and would only be used in my gold line crafting in hopes of a slightly better gold line weapon. I wouldn't call a platinum 2H %DotI line "good" until at least 90%.

    I am truly having fun with the noob crafting, although I have not gotten any 4 line keepers yet I am getting items with 4 lines pretty consistently.

    Of course it won't replace targeted crafting, but it isn't as frustrating when you get crap and doesn't cost as much either. I might even get lucky one day.

    I've yet to see a single gold line from this so called "noob" crafting. I gave up cause it was costing way too much and am beginning to think that there might be a mass photoshop conspiracy going on.

    Only problem with that theory is that I know BigHink and _Baragain_ and they both have done it. *sigh*

    Lost patience with searching high rolls so ive crafted what i had yep lost 1 90% in the process but the other two stats were 86 and 87 so cant complain the most important part is that now i can relax and search for 92+ ( only have 1 at the moment :D )

    I knew it. I said to my friend, give it some 3 weeks and people will be running around in full platinum. Well, here we go.

    I'm doing a few noob crafts per day while waiting to gather some more "good" items to do targeted crafting.

    When I get 2 or 3 good lines from a noob craft, that item gets moved over for targeting crafting, in which I have horrible luck.

    Thankfully I have all my gear at level 60, so I can earn gold easily to put up with the higher prices in crafting.

    My main problem is cores needed (specifically draken cores). So even when I do get lucky on a craft, the item has to sit in inventory until I can farm a large amount of cores. I've got a nice 39% dmg torso just waiting to be added to my dark torso. I've also got a really nice set of HP boots just wasting space in my locker also waiting for those darn draken cores.

    I should have thought about my gear differently so that I didn't have to farm so many stupid draken cores.

    I'm so freaking jealous it's mad'ning. I've yet to see a idoti gold line on any weapon, let alone a 2H weapon. :(

    You and me both bother, but that won't really help.

    I need Draken cores (I've >900, need 2800+) for: Helmet, Gloves, Boots, Adornment, and 1 Ring.
    I need Materia cores (I've >500, need 2700+) for: Pauldrons, Armor, Weapon, Neckass, Belt, and 1 Ring.
    I need Pristine (I've <400, need lots) and Augment cores (I've <400, need lots) soooo dang bad as well.

    And every time I get Soul cores (I've >6500, need none) I want to kick a Dev right where it ..... :mad:

    I'm trying to make a build as much draken core free as possible. My only draken items are 3 pieces of Dragan, that I would very much like to ditch as well. But with some Q sets being bugged, and with the lack of damage bonuses on other sets, it won't happen any time soon :/

    does anybody have same problem im having-I have tried to craft a legendary shield and one hand axe-been working on shield have at least tried 100 times 30-40 of those times have been with at least 7/12 or 8/12 gold lines and it seems like every [EDIT] time it picks the lowest possible enchantments for the 3 inherited or one gold and 3 crappy and im not exaggerating at the least bit!! is it me or is that how their so called random generator works don't sound to random to me-you would think all those times it could at least pick 2 gold lines but it doesn't??? any suggestions would be appreciated

    Unfortunately the other options are limited to say the least. On top of the Dragan set, I also did the moon adorn, and dark set, so I'm seven pieces in for those stupid draken cores. Since I need so many, I've become incredibly more picky on what craft items I transfer.

    Hundreds of tries is pretty much normal. Granted some get super lucky while most of us just waste time and gold. I've been trying for a nice 4 gold line weapon since crap 2.0 was introduced. I was darn thankful when I get 3 good lines and one crappy non gold line, that I'm still using in my weapon today.

    When I do targeted crafting I the first and second slots are 3 gold lines each, while the third and fourth spots are 2 gold lines each, and yet I've never seen a 4 gold idoti lines on a weapon.

    Out of all my gear, I've only gotten 2 great 4/4 pieces and now that they have introduced platinum lines, those don't even measure up any longer.

    I usually do my "noob crafting" with T7 and T6 items, so I think that has an influence.

    Even doing 3/3/2/2, your odds are only 11.5% Still plenty of room for failure.
    Even a 3/3/3/3 only has a 27.2% chance (about 1 in 4), so it is a far cry from a guarantee.

    I may have OK luck with the item line drops, but I've had the worst possible luck imaginable when it comes to the Green and Blue crafting books. I've used over 15k lockpicks and haven't gotten either book. I know the odds of the blue book are low, but you'd think that over 400k andermant worth of lockpicks would get you at least the stupid green book. (Note, I'm not saying that I've spent 400k andermant, just that the number of lockpicks I've spent is worth over 400k andermant.)

    Noob crafting is following the same rules as the drops.
    Don't spend your gold on T0-T3 items ... try it with higher tier.
    You are not the only one :D ... I haven't seen a single line higher than 56% IDotI. (actually I have only one 60.9xx%)
    The game is trolling me ... I am getting max enchantments like HP on rings, resistance on belts, BS on rings and shields, HP and BR on shields ... and they are going to the merchant right away.

    It's worse when the rng gods tease you with crappy gold lines that you don't want. Every time I drop 400+ gold on failed crafts it drives me nuts.

    Now if I could have gotten this 4 years ago, I would have been jumping up and down with joy.

    Finally, after countless combinations and failed attempts:

    Not perfect, but not complaint either. On the other hand, it worthed a little gold, since I made only a few tries. First from 2/2/0/0 unique lines I got the first item. Then, I got this after the the second try, so I think I was extremely lucky with this belt.


    Sorry for the low quality. Good luck!

    Congrats, that is an impressive belt.

    It's nice to see that good crafts are indeed possible to come from the first two slots.

    I've tracked the results from the last 100 failed attempts at targeted crafting for a 4/4 weapon. All attempts were made using a minimum of 8 gold lines with the first two slots always containing 3 gold lines each.

    1st slot: 0% of the time 2 lines are chosen. 50% of the time 1 line is chosen, 50% of the time 0 lines are chosen.
    2nd slot: 30% of the time 2 lines are chosen, 40% of the time 1 line is chosen, 30% of the time 0 lines are chosen.
    3rd slot: 70% of the time 2 lines are chosen, 20% of the time 1 line is chosen, 10% of the time 0 lines are chosen.
    4th slot: 10% of the time 2 lines are chosen, 70% 1 line is chosen, 20% of the time 0 lines are chosen.
