yes, there is a rhyme to the madness.

You have two different levels of counter buffs when you hit a failure. The lesser level ones advance progress, while the advanced vesion (higher level version) will increase durability.

So, how can you use this to your advantage?

The little known fact is that you can use the buffs ANY TIME you do not have to wait til a failure to use them. I dont think this was designed that way, but it works that way.

So, be SURE that you hit a tradeskill buff EVERY tick of yoru progress.

And some of them stack. Ie you can hit multiple advance durability buffs at the same time and it will repaire your failurs. So click advance progress until you start seeing your rank4 item less than half way down. Start clicking the repare durability buffs (usually allof them, but mostly 2 will do). I usually click 2 buffs at a time. So again, if you notice you are going to loose the prestine item, start spamming all of your advanced buffs that repare durability and save it!

If you do end up losing the pristine or level 4 of an item, and you cancel the item before it's finished, all you lose is the fuel. This is handy if you really need the pristine and don't want to run through refined ingredients to get it.

Not only can you use the buffs at any time you WANT to use them constantly. I stick the anti-faliure buffs for whatever I'm making on my quick bar and just repeatedly mash those buttons until it's made. I think I've gotten a non-pristine once in the hundreds of times I've done this now and that was because I had my fingers on the wrong keys... I was watching TV as I crafted.

Of course you have to watch your power, some buffs take power.

Where do you see the "Power"? All i see are the top duribility bar and the state bar.

simple rule of thumb. Low level buffs = progress sacrificing durability, high level buffs = durability sacrificing progress


The high level ones are the ones you will use most often.

So in other words, If i am a level 9 Crafter (as of last night) I cannot get pristines everytime>>? I tried your theory of mashing the 3 progress inreases *lower level crafting buggs* But pristine was not the result everytime, in fact i failed and got one under pristine ALOT more than i can happily admit to.. So i am guessing you need to do this AFTER Level 10 if im not correct? And if so .. Do i have to mash them all or do i have to mash just one or two.. say the best repair and progress one, or say just the medium repair and progress ones so they even each other out but keep my mana full for the item, and so on... Please give me your input, as i am an inspiring Alchemist, and i am just crafting to help other crafters. so If i get pristines everytime im sure that could be of help

[B]Any reply Especially From the Infamous Wyvern Would be appreciated Thank you

From what I have read, yes at level 10 you will get your advanced buffs.

Then you will start to notice a differenct when using them.

Simple rule of thumb.

Low level ones = progress gain sacrificing durability.

High level ones = slow progress but saves durability.

They're not really divinded into Low' s and High's. Their just specified to counter act certain crafting situations that would impeed your progress.

In General there are three spells per skill. One of which uses power. Right click and examine the three that craft uses to find it.

Use it for increased durability, and increased progress. Just make sure you don't run out of power because you may actually need that skill for a counteract.

And oh yes, you get new skill at level 10. They replace the old skills, and have stronger effects, but they cost more power/durability/progress to use

From what I understand, you get new ones at each 10 levels.

At level 10 you get durability buffs. At level 20 you get power buffs. At level 30 you get durability buffs again, etc.

It has been my experience, that usually the hightest level buffs are the ones you will use the most.
