    2.16 will change Quick Synthesis

    hi all
    read through some of the rants and cheers re: the latest live letter and havent seen anyone talk about this so i thought i would give a heads up to some of you out there that may have missed this point.

    as of right now, quick synthesis can be a great way to level up and get achievements.
    even better you can do it with nothing but your "weapon" equipped, saving you repair costs.
    however, in 2.16, this will no longer be the case.

    So if anyone out there like to save up rested exp, grab a GC scroll and a bite to eat, pick a craft closest to your level that has only 1 or 2 ingredients, find a nice spot to get nekkid and get to work.....

    you have until Feb. 22nd

    Or you could do the same with gear on, turn it into materia, and turn a nice profit.

    If what they meant by stats affecting quick synth is that having fully overmelded AF with all 50 crafts will no longer result in fails, then I'm all for this change.

    Seriously, it's annoying to have to make 200 of X and watching quick synth fail the first 5 when the alternative is to sit there for an hour clicking on Careful Synthesis II - real exciting.

    Do you have any direct quotes to reference? I don't understand what you are trying to say with your OP... How exactly is quick synth being changed?

    I'm not OP and I don't have direct quotes, but if I remember correctly, they were saying that stats would affect quick synthesis. Currently, as far as I know, nothing affects quick synth rates. You could be wearing no armour or you could be wearing full overmelded AF and you would still get roughly 90% success rates. They didn't give any specific details (as usual) but the implication is that having higher stats --> better quick synth rates (or, of course, worst stats --> lower quick synth rates, which is what the OP seems to be complaining about).

    Oh... hmm, this is actually better for me since I already have all the crafts at 50... False alarm?

    Doesn't this seem liek the way it should be??

    I'm pretty sure that's what the change was intended for - or at least, I'm hoping that's what the change was for. Like I mentioned earlier, it's really annoying to see the first 5 quick synths fail when you're in full overmelded AF with all crafts at 50 (why am I failing so often when I have Careful Synthesis II?). I'm sure I wasn't the only one who complained about it.

    i wasnt complaining, just giving people a heads up.
    i only used this method to burn some levels when i have alot of rested exp saved.
    i do hope with our stats being included in the equation that i see more HQ stuff though.

    It seems like Quick Synthesis has a built-in 5%(?) fail rate, regardless of your gear. Maybe it is just a penalty for using quick synthesis in general.

    But, I still feel like the fail rate is too high.

    As a level 50 Culinarian, I should not be failing an synths in the 1-30~40 level range, especially with full HQ gear (don't have materia melds yet). If I spent the time to do it manually and would never fail, I should never fail at quick synth either.
