okay must point out first off... IM NOT A CRAFTER! yet.

but i have to ask this cause i am planing to train ranger soon!

If you craft bolts without this a possible HQ = 99 bolts correct....

but crafting with this = 99 bolts anyways... so

what is the benefit of HQ / 99(not every synth=random) over using this for 99 bolts p/synth anyways?

If you are just over the level cap for these, but below the range of high HQ probability this can be cheaper since you save on crystals. But for skillups or if you're past 31 levels higher, then go with the single recipe.

at 1st glance you probably think this item is a piece of trash....and for awile it will be. The thing is when you enter higher end ammo like kabura arrows and darksteel bolts demon arrows etc your main goal isnt really HQs as being such a high craft such as lv90 kubura arrows (the lv70 silencing ones) rather its to keep you gil/hr high. For example today i just spent a crap load of time crafting with 466 darksteel heads lol....not fun. Thing is with no HQs if i used this key item for less chance of breaks i still make a ton of gil...about 700kish profit. Thats without any HQs assume less than 10 breaks. Now you might aruge that ok then make more with HQs....well yes this is all good and all but believe it or not crafts like darksteel doing it the long painful way kills your GpH (gil per hour) to give example how long it took for me to make these dam bolts wo boltmaker it took about 4 hrs with a lv100+2 woodworker helping. Thats crazy....i made about 5 stacks in 4 hrs...thats about 110kish GpH...not all that great. Boltmaker would drastically reduce time spent on making bolts to free ou say ISNM farming god time etc. this is just my opinion but to me it stands out as a good fact
Tell me it isn't so....

I purchased this piece of junk expecting that i could still hq bolts. After all when you use twine you can still hq lumber. I want a refund.

HQ results for bolts give either 66 or 99 bolts as a result. This gives you 99 anyway - so you have no chance of getting an HQ (which should give you 132 or 165 etc.

It does sound pretty worthless.

This item would make some sense if you can't high quality on normal bolt synths anyway. I've hunted through the website and have yet to see any bolt recipe with a high quality result.

If that is the case it really sucks, would be nice if you could HQ though.

Allows you to craft according to the following recipe:

Earth Crystal + 3 bolt heads + 3 lumber + Bundling Twine -> 99 bolts

So you save 2 earth crystals, but must buy a bundling twine.

Oh, and the HQ result? 99 bolts.

So you sacrifice your HQ possibilities to save ~150 gil.

{Thanks for the offer, but I'll have to pass.}
