if it is 37.. i think were screwed
Correction: If it is 37 some of us who aren't 94+ smithing are blessed with being able to break tier2 without having to delevel :). You can't always trust people on the forums, for instance, the post about a boneworker being able to break tier2 off SH only if he/she didn't exceed 98 bone. From my experience, there's no way I should be hq'ing more SH than Hauby if that were a fact since my Boneworking is 100+3 and Leatherworking is 61+3 (synth support), yet, my smithing on another character is 88+3 with Clothcraft 62+1 so far. The point is, you can't always trust everything you read on these forums, and if you really wanna be sure about something, you have to go out and run your own tests. I know for one that I'll be testing the leather sub for SH on a mule once I reactivate my account.
I'm pretty sure Mikesjusticee wouldn't go through all that trouble just to keep the Hauby market to himself tho, right? Only way is to put up your own Ingot and test it for yourself hehe, but I think that Salto just had bad luck in getting a skill up out of the 60 hauby synths.

too many 100+3 boneworkers feel that having leather 61+ support is producing too many HQ's, we must go complain to SE... :P Edited, Sat Feb 25 13:23:06 2006 by starcraftghost
