The Leading FFXIV Gil Seller - Uffxiv.com!

I started my crafting in the streets of Uldah as a nobody with barely any ffxiv gil, now I ended my career there in the same place of Uldah with friends' support! It's fate!

I started my crafting in the streets of Uldah as a nobody with barely any ffxiv gil

The making of my final i170 was also a pretty dramatic one

 

I first failed too many Flawless Syn that I needed 10 extra durab for completion, and then failed 4 out of 8 Hasty Touches. I was sitting at only IQ5 when there was 50 durab left (and still needing 20 durab for completion). Clearly, the 2 upcoming touches would have only gotten me to IQ7 at most before the Byregot... far from enough.

 

I had much lucky CP along the way though. At that time I had 182 CP (including those upcoming Comfort Zone steps), so I decided to add an extra (3rd) Waste Not there, and failed another Hasty out of the 4 touches (so, equivalent to failing 6 Hasty Touches total, considering that 1 touch I lost due to FS failure!). 

 

Sadly, by the time I realized I had only IQ8, it was already too late... I just finished my 3rd WN, and had only 30 durab and 101 CP left. I needed 2x CS II for completion... Thanks to those God damn failed FS's, I was sitting at 1310 progress. Each of my CS II can only give 120 progress, so I'm 6 progress shy from completion after one CS II), which means I had to Byregot right there... But I knew IQ8 was not enough. I still need 56 CP for GS+Byregot, so 101 CP is not enough to restore any durab, nor another round of WN. Yet, because I took with me Reclaim, I had no Innovation, nor Ingen2. So my Byregot is going to be naked on IQ8 (SH+GS+Byregot = 78 CP, with 23 CP completely wasted). 

 

If I was able to foresee this problem earlier, maybe at 50 durab, I would have gone SH II, Hasty, Master's Mend, Hasty x3. That way, I would have gained 3 extra touches instead of just 2 extras from WN (I had no Manipulation, so the only way to recover durab was via MM). But who would have thought of that? WN is technically more CP efficient than MM (28 CP for each extra step instead of MM's 30.7 CP for each extra step)! And even if I had gone the MM way, I would have only 69 CP left, and my final Byregot would have no protection from Steady Hand, which would have been VERY risky.

 

I could Reclaim the item at this point. Yet, somehow I decided to gamble a little more. So at 30 durab, I did another round of SH II + Hasty (and prayed that this Hasty landed, which it did), and then GS + Byregot at IQ9, reaching 100% HQ rate. With 10 durab and 20 CP left, and while SH II was still active, I used Standard Synthesis. It worked, and I got my final i170!

 

Special thanks to Rhys'to Lyehga for providing me a final Seaborne Aethersand for free. And thanks to both Rhys and my in-game husband, Kumi, for being there to give me support when I was crafting this final item! I totally freaked them out when so many Hasties blew up! They were as nervous as I did! LOL!
