Level 65+ crafting, only for top guilds?

Many of us have kept themselves busy with a craft during the first few chapters. We all were able to collect what we need because it was available to all. I personally think the level 60 recipe's were the highlight where I as a Carpenter was very excited about making weapons for guildies and for selling. It motivated us to do a lot of DoD runs to get the nails needed.Tho ever since craftingrecipe's have gone up to 65, and now even 70, those rare materials seem not to be as available as they used to be. The instances they must now be obtained from can no longer be called "available to all". Here's something I have a hard time understanding:-- The ones that ARE able to farm them, often don't need them, since they are there to farm the instance weapons in most cases which are better in the end.-- The guildies in that guild will want to level their own crafting skill, and use the collected materials to use or sell the made results. (don't get me wrong, this part IS understandable) But it results in the mats not being available on the Auction House.-- When I do find a mat I need on AH, it's usually in the vicinity of 5 million gold. Do we really want to risk paying that much, with the 90% chance the outcome is a fail? Do I want to add this 5 million cost beside my other hundreds of million gold spent on gear?I have no problem leveling my Carpentry to whatever level is needed. But I have no idea WHY, since most guilds are not able to farm these instances as easily, or not at all. Besides that, the costs of multiple complete party wipes outweighs the benefits for finally getting the mat you need. By the time we'd be able to get these materials, the level cap will have raised twice already making the gear/weapons crafted obsolete. Do I need to abandon my years-long friends to be able to get these things, or is it time for a material-system overhaul people! (excuse the horrible way this post is built, the forum will not allow Return command, or line spaces for some od reason)

For low level mats, you can get them in Malatina Survival Game, and the mats you get scale with your own level, as does the level of the mobs. Sadly, this stops at level 50 after which you keep getting the same mats and the minigame gets easier and easier. One suggestion would be to let this minigame continue to scale up, both in mob level and in drops you can get (including crafting mats).

It's an idea, but I remember a suggestion like Survival Game some time ago. Who knows they might be working on that, we all know they never really tell us these things. We are usually the ones who have to let people know this by adding it to Undocumented Changes. Another idea would be to add it to the Tergothen Bags, which already include Recipe's and (crappy) stats. Make the droprate for a stone or nail as hard as a Monstercard in those bags, I don't care, atleast we get the feeling it's possible to get it.

Obtaining the rare materials from the "Mysterious Bags" in Tergothen has been confirmed by yours truly. I thank you much for your contribution Piatta. Without it, I probably would not even have tried it. Happy hunting everyone.

Hi there, the Mysterious Bag is a RARE drop from ALL mobs in Tergothen Bay. When you kill the mob, you loot is as normal, but look again carefully on the ground, there might just be a bag!!

I have been killing mobs a few awhile and only got 1 bag with the earring in it. I got 2 others since the zone came out all also with the same earring.

I hope RW puts in another method of gaining these stones because I did not spend hundreds of diamonds on craftings stations and millions of gold leveling my crafts, to have to suffer this much just to even get 1 stone.

If the bags dropped more frequently it would be better, like one every 100mobs.

Either way Just putting my 2cents down that I am not happy with what is ingame right now.

The drop rate seems to be terrible indeed. I'm still looking for the X-bow recipe, and have gotten 1 Nail for it so far. And it also seems they drop stones/nails for level 65 crafting. I got a Flax for example (level 65 Tailoring mat). Other finds include recipe's for ArmorCrafting and Blacksmithing, but they aren't really of much interrest to me. Still I continue, because I am unable to farm the latest instances. I can only hope to be lucky enough to find what I was looking for and be a proud crafter of my very own level 70 weapon. Goodluck to you crafters as well!

I'm a grinder and grind often in TB for 2 hour straight. In those 2 hour I get 3 or 4 of those bags, once had a recipe, but never crafting mats.

This needs to be solved some way, the crafting system in rom isn't all that great, but now it's just worthless. Have a lvl 65 blacksmith and no use lvling it up further, never gonna get those mats anyway.

Also have an alt at lvl 65 cooking, with no way to get the mats needed for lvl 70 cause planting gives the wrong ones. made my mining master so not even a way to gather them normally.

Still think the gatherings should be separate from the craftings, and all gatherings should go max.

Came to visit here and still seems to be the same sitaution we face in the US, one player who runs the new instance threw away 3 sigma stones because he did not realize it was worth anything. He says his not trolling but who knows.

Still no carp or BS rare stones for me, found 2 lvl 70 recipes and a bunch of rings and earrings.. :/ bought 2 rare stones for lvl 70 armorcrafting 1mgold total which is useless but was a cheap price so cant complain.

Can only hope RW makes some changes life as a crafter is pretty much non existent at the moment. Those with no access to the new instance are pretty much useless now :(

Not sure if bags drop mats for 70 weps - so far besides recipes/bay necklaces got:
- x3 lvl 61 mats for 70 armorcraft
- x2 lvl 61 mats for 70 tailoring
- x3 lvl 61 mats for 65 carpentry
- x2 lvl 61 mats for 65 blacksmith

Maybe just strange streak and bags actually may drop all lvl 61 mats but so far (40-ish bags) no white iron nail nor sigma stone (only mottled/ike) :(
