I've found out that if you use an elemental staff when synthing and desynthing the hidden effect helps boost the susess rate

Weather has the highest effect on desynthesis, imho.
Lightning day, lightning weather, and there is a lightning direction to face.

But with the weather, I'm over 50% success (not losing the item..... it generally takes more than one try for it to succeed).

Smithing Results
# May 09 2005 at 4:22 PM Rating: Decent
With a smithing skill of 30 on darksday with advanced support out of 14 attempts

4x - Steel ingot
6x - Lost both helm and crystal
2x - Lost only the crystal

On Phoenix the helms go for around 1k and lightning crystals 3k, so i spent a total of 13k and made 20k (a stack of steel ingots sells for 60k)

Best Hunting Grounds

Ok, I Know what type of mobs drop these but where is the best place to get them? Is there an area that drops them more or has more of these types of mobs closer together? Dunes is a good one but the spawns arent close together nor are there really that many.

I want to farm alot of them for synth, i can get lightning cheap and its these that are the most expensive, so if i can get alot of them and synth all of them there i can hopefully get back to bastok and into the guild with maybe 40-50 ingots of steel and iron and get some craft levels.
Success rate

The problem with desynthing these is that the success rate never goes up with your skills. You'll break just as many at level 70 as you would at level 15. To increase your success rate desynth on Lightningday. Full Moon may affect it, but I haven't been able to try it out. Basically it all comes down to luck.
Deysynthing these

I'm a level 20 Smith, When I desynth these They break about 50% of the time. I lose them about 25% of the time when the crystal breaks.

Strangely engouth, I tend to get Steel ignots more than Bronze, and Iron ignots are almost unheard of.

At smithing lv30 (Or about that level) I can imagine this can possibly become profitable. On Cerberus Copper goes for aobut 200 ea, Steel 4000, Iron 2400. Gob helms range from 500-1000 depending on city and # of helms in AH.

Goblin Helm - Smith lvl-20+ with lightning crystal on lightning day will give more HQ (Iron Ingot/Steel Ingot)

Note: do it on Full Moon

Ok just for the record, any gob who wears armor drops these along w/ the armor. The leather wearing ones drop the masks and leather armor(name evades me right now). This is all for all tiers of goblins.

Wind Crystal + Goblin Helm = Iron Sheet

I just synthed this into 1 steel ignot using a lightning crystal. I'm smithing level 10 and had advanced synthesis support.
The Skinny
# Jan 12 2004 at 11:03 AM Rating: Good
Ok, I've been obsessed with Iron Ingots and Goblin Helms since I was a LVl 6 Smith. I submitted this Iron Ingot/Golbin Helm recipe. Here's what I know:

Lightning Crystals: These things are the best crystal in the game. You can take items and split them back down into their components. You can split endless things, like hairpins, goblin gear, shields, etc, back down into their core ingredients. I don't think Guild members will give you these recipes... just experiment. What you get from a split seems to be directly related to your skills in the craft.

Goblin Helms: These are pure gold... well.. steel at least. You can get Bronze Ingots, Iron Ingots, and Steel Ingots from these bad boys. In my experience as a 15 Smith, Bronze is the most common, with Steel following, and finally Iron. For the best results, you NEED advanced synthesis support. Helps to work on Lightningday (light purple) too.

The ingots: These actually don't sell very well in a Bazaar. I tried in San d'Oria and Bastok. You're better off using your cheaply made ingots in further recipes. Steel goes for about 3500 a brick, Iron about 2500, and Bronze about 200. Anybody who knows the Goblin Helm trick will just use those to get ingots rather than by them from scum like me :\

I'm going to submit a request for a specific Lightning Crystal crafting section.. they are unique and very valuable to me.

#Anonymous, Posted: Jan 10 2004 at 11:07 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Gob Helm + Light Crystal = no such synthesis
# Jan 10 2004 at 11:06 AM Rating: Default
Gob Helm + Light Crystal = no such synthesis
Gob Helm + Lightning Crystal = that synthesis is beyond your level (Smithing at 3)

Umm yeah... you can't do any recipe unless your skill in the particular craft is sufficiently close to the item's cap level.

This is especially true for desynthing. Since the cap for the recipe is 30, it's best to do this one after you're 40 unless you farm a lot of Gob Helms and feel like being brave - but be at least 30 for some successes.
