Understanding the ways of the craft(s) ~ Courtesy of Anochrite[]

We use 4 Tiers now on era. In order to determine what tier you are crafting at you must first take your level in the main craft you are attempting (woodworking, smithing, etc...) and apply bonuses / penalties to it according to any bonus you have from gear and/or guild support. Then you compare this level to the level of the craft you are attempting, in order to determine what tier you are crafting at.


The 4 Tiers of Crafting:
[]

  • Tier 0 is when your crafting level is less than 11 greater than the level of the craft you are attempting.
  • Tier 1 is when your crafting level is equal to or greater than 11 above the craft you are attempting but less than 31 above the craft's level.
  • Tier 2 is when your crafting level is equal to or greater than 31 above the craft you are attempting but less than 51 above the craft's level.
  • Tier 3 is when your crafting level is equal to or greater than 51 above the craft you are attempting but less than 81 above the craft's level.
  • Tier 4 is when your crafting level is equal to or greater than 81 above the craft you are attempting.

Examples (ignoring benefits mentioned below):[]

  • [Your craft level: 100] [ What you are crafting: 90 and above] [tier 0]
  • [Your craft level: 100] [ What you are crafting: 89] [tier 1]
  • [Your craft level: 100] [ What you are crafting: 69] [tier 2]
  • [Your craft level: 100] [ What you are crafting: 49] [tier 3]
  • [Your craft level: 100] [ What you are crafting: 29 and below] [tier 4]

What affects your crafting level:[]

*Note that these are hidden benefits. You will not see these changes in the level you see in your status menu, thus you will need to calculate the bonus/penalties accordingly:

  • Crafting Gear: You can get up to +2 by wearing both pieces of crafting gear associated with the craft you are attempting.
  • Guild Support (Standard): In each guild there are a couple NPCs offering guild support for a small fee which gives +1 to your crafting level.
  • Guild Support (Advanced): In each guild there is 1 NPC offering advanced guild support for a small fee which gives +3 to your crafting level.
  • Mogenhancement: By participating in guild requests, you can receive points and use them to acquire furnishings for your moghouse that will result in a +1 skill boost.

What does NOT affect your crafting level:[]

  • Moon Phase
  • Day of the week.
  • Direction faced while crafting

Base HQ%'s for the Tiers:[]

  • Tier 0 has a base HQ% of 3%
  • Tier 1 has a base HQ% of 7%
  • Tier 2 has a base HQ% of 25%
  • Tier 3 has a base HQ% of 50%
  • Tier 4 has a base HQ% of 75%

HQ1, HQ2, HQ3 (HQ Inception, an HQ within an HQ)[]

If you do HQ, and you are doing a craft where there is a difference whether you hit hq1, 2, or 3 (foods or jewels are most common), RNG comes into play. Here are the rough %'s (subject to verification):

  • HQ1: 10/15 ~ 66.6%
  • HQ2: 4/15 ~ 26.6%
  • HQ3: 1/15 ~ 6.6%
