How many 399 Smithys are nerd raging righ tnow...

Going to try doing another 30-40 tonight, I don't have enough for many tries on the shield yet, so it is no rush right now. Once a few things start happening, I should be pushing up to 400 and beyond very quickly. Hopefully this week sometime.

Good luck to everyone who is proccessing through the expert tests. :)

2 mil spent on mats ( not including adamantium)
4 failed shields
GG ncsoft, die in a fire while i try attempt number 5.
who wants to nerd rage with me!
(ps just venting)
Ps are the other servers selling fluxes for stupid prices? Whats the average flux price, major and up?
Luckily, only spent 4-6mill on those shields to get 1 to proc and then another proc'd right after! Created 3 at the time and 2 proc'd out of those 3 after 5 failed before that. Ended up selling the shield for 1.5m.
Now still working on the last part of the quest, such a pain!

Wo Pre Ar's are coming down but it's still disgusting.
I had to do over 500 lvl 390 work orders to get the drop.
On a side not it seems like it only drops so many times per hour or something like that so the more people crafting work orders the less chance you get.
It also seems this way with procs on normal crafting. I felt like I was having the worst luck since I'm on in the evening during high usage.
I got on sunday morning and got 5 greens and 3 blues and 2 whites out of 10 crafts. Ridiculous. :cry:
I got two Worthy Noble Durable Adamantium Great Swords in a row after 4 Noble Durable Adamantium Greatswords.

Critted on 2. was pretty funny. He had to tab out because he couldn't stand watching.
Personally I think it was due to my secret technique. :D

- I did the first part of the quest (399 p work order) on first try : nothing exceptionnal
- I critted the Noble Adamantium shield on first try : was quite happy
- bought enough to do 5 (only) 390 p work orders (with the only money I had left, I was very broke) and got the design for the Green Durable Orichalcum shield after 3 work orders only : at that point I figured I was the lucky guy ^^
- As I am only level 35, it took me a bit of time to gather 3 millions for the first attempt, and, whithout the help of a very generous guildie I would still be there.
It critted on first try !!!.:jealous:
I am now AS expert, probaly one of those to whom it had costed the very minimum possible :)
Now you can throw me rocks, I don't care, my super nifty Triumphant helm will protect me ^^:suave:

i have just hit lvl 30 and Armorsmithing is 401
The recipe for the last shield can be obtained from doing the lvl 390 work order, can take a while as they are random itemthe master gives you, but they are there.
I have found that if you gather all the required item to make more than 1 at a time. I made first one and failed, next attempt i got enough mats to do 2 combines and buy the sounds of things i got really luck, it proc'ed on the second attemp.
The reason i went for Mastery was that it was too expencive to fail, so i thought that Mastery was a garrentee that you crafted the maximun item from a recipe all the time. My information was incorrect.
So the morrel of the story is:
a; Make sure you got enough mats to make multipal items
b; dont do it unless your really really want the Hat that you get for Mastery
Good hunting to all

I feel very unlucky. My first shield came very close to failing as well. What gives? I mean, if I have to go through the bar twice (for a noble proc) it seems like the chance of actually completing the freaking shield is pretty ******.... am I missing something?
edit: ah, fail bar resets when you proc noble. Word.
