    Crafting humor - funny stuff :)

    I think it'd be nice to create a thread about anything funny (can be a story or incident you had, or even a single picture) that you have encountered related to crafting. I'll take the lead here... this is a picture I made today :

    I could use that for 'tried to eat too soon after tea and the buff didn't go on, but started craft anyway'. That's one that makes me do that.

    I was crafting Resistance Material for custom deliveries. I find those hard to get enough collectability on (for Max reward) This time, after a struggle, I managed to max it out completely. Only to discover when I finished it, I had forgotten to make it a collectable to begin with.

    Well, I was crafting for a friend and by the end I got very unlucky and got something like 5 or 6 failed actions.

    He saw the craft failing and asked if it was OK, I told him I wasn't sure if I'd be able to safely finish the craft, so I proposée to waste not.

    He refused.

    So I went along with the craft and unfortunately didn't have enough CP to recast steady hand for the last progress turn and I couldn't use careful synthesis.

    I told him, alright so here we are, there are 40% chance your craft will fail.

    We were something like 10 on the discord channel. And everyone was like " come on you can do it" n stuff.

    Many people actually came at the free company house to see it, and then I'm like

    "OK, I'm gonna press"
    ...
    ...
    ...
    *cling*
    ...
    "failed"

    The entire discord started laughing

    It was a rather expensive craft, and the guy was kinda poor.

    But I had my pride so I bought back all the mats and made him his item eight after.

    Nothing like opening that Treasure chest I just got from the latest greatest map only to realize I'm still a crafter and getting one shotted by the mob and losing my treasure. I can't tell you how many times I've done that lol. They really need a pop up warning asking "Are you sure you want to open this treasure chest looking like that?"

    Haha, I do that all the time especially on Custom Deliveries. I make all of them then can't figure out why they won't take them from me. One little button can completely destroy the best of plans lol.
