  • New to Alchemy

    I was wondering how one makes HQ items? Or is it just by random chance?

    Sort of random chance. There are tiers where your chances of HQing an item go up as you skill up past the cap on an item.
    I use a Mac because I'm just better than you are.

        You can HQ on items while skilling up on them but for a better chance, you would want to craft items 20 levels lower than your current level.

        For example, if youre like level 60-70, you have a higher chance at HQing items between Amateur and initiate rank.

          Honestly, look at the dates of posts before posting nothing helpful.

            We so need that necro-posting warning on the reply confirmation and the "Undead Topic" icon.

              The tiers are 11, (10% chance) 31 (30% chance) and 51 (50% chance) above the skill cap of the crafted item to HQ it. But even then it's never consistent. I've gotten strings of all HQ's followed up by next to none (if any) so it balances out in the end.

                I noticed that I was occasionally on a rare basis HQing Beeswax 15 levels above the cap when synthing Silent Oils. Possibly because I was 4 levels above the 11-level tier. Use that example as a sort of reference to a low-tier HQ.

                  I find it so funny that you all consider this to be necro posting as you will get new members posting all the time.

                  You mise well expect it.

                    That people are fucktards is no reason to approve of fucktardity. Most new members, however, don't have a hard time posting in threads that were posted within the last year.
