How often do you get HQ synths?
# Dec 21 2007 at 8:41 AM Rating: Decent
Currently @ level 30 Blacksmithing, and most of the synths at this level range involve using a steel ingot or sheet. Considering I've only ever had one HQ synth for steel ingot from Iron Ores this is proving to be an expensive area of levelling Smithing as I have to buy from AH. Stack of Steel Ingots currently going for 40 - 43k a stack on Remora.

Don't buy them from NPC's in Mhaura, the rip-off merchants are selling ONE ingot for over 19k!

Steel Ingots are just HQ results for Iron Ingots, also HQ2 results from desynthing... no one knew that its a HQ of Iron before?

This can also be obtained as an HQ2 of a Goblin's Helm. I was able to desynth 2 Steel Ingots, 5 Iron, and 6 Bronze from something like 25 Helms. Smithing is 14.4, facing south, 90% moon on Watersday.

Well I´ve seen that this happens to a lot of people so I´m not crazy. Crafted this while I was leveling my Smithing.

19 Smithing, Fireday, Northwest direction, not sure about moon though but it was NOT full moon.

Fire Crystal
4 iron ores

My first thought was that it was a HQ of Iron Ingot and I was really exited about it (my first HQ) but when I checked here... well, since it is not in the recipes list... and I have never seen a HQ animation, didnt noticed anything different that time when I made it (no special or different animation).

ok..got the preiest's robe and thought hey it's my lucky day and now I'm making steel ingots out of 4 irons and a fire crystal?? wtf!?
Wow newb

If u guys hadnt relized but steel is iron just a more refined form origanally iron would wear away quickly it was a softer metal, so they found a way to heat the steel super hot so as to get all the oxygen out of iron thus creating a srtonger iron in turn called steel and thats why you dont see many cast iron pans or iron framed buildings its all steel cuz it stronger
new recipe?

I've made hundreds of iron ingots. I craft em up as I mine. I'm level 24 smithing. The other day, 12% waxing crecent, on lightsday, I crafted a steel ingot out of 4 iron ores and a Fire crystal.

Could this possibly be a HQ version of Iron ingot? A 98 Goldsmith, 60 Smithing, guy in my LS seems to think it was a mistake, a glitch.

What do you guys think?

Sorry >< I just read everyon's posts, and it seems that this is a HQ iron ingot. ><. My bad, i'll read other's posts first.

I agree, except i got HQ animation when it happened to me. I was mining (smithing lv 49) and trying to clear some space. I used 4 iron ores and a fire, HQ animation, and ding....steel ingot. I was like wtf and the other smithies in my ls were kinda baffled. I can confirm though....

iron ore x4
fire crystal
NQ Iron ingot
HQ Steel ingot
Nothing new

This has happened to me and in my old smithing guides I have collected it does list the HQ is a Steel Ingot. However It might be higher then a HQ maybe a +2. As I've gotten HQ animation and no steel ingot also.

There should be a recipe that allows making them with iron and zinc ore, like in real life.

Although LemMminG's explanation was not very good, his is the most correct out of these posts. Although Shinoyuma does make a fair point that other metals are used to alloy steel, that does not make the steel. Steel is still to an overwhelming percentage iron, with a slight amount of carbon.

Steel is produced by manipulating the phases of iron in the product; this is mainly accomplished via control of temperature and amount of time spent at said temperature. Different types of phases present will yield a different type of steel.

Thus, one can logically conclude that as one becomes better with crystal synthesis, they can better control the process - and yield steel from iron.

Edited typos.

Steel = Zinc+Iron... wdf??

not really.. steel aint a compund, steel is just iron, but without the impurities such as sillica or phosphorus, which is what makes iron weak.. it always has a different conecentration of carbon than iron to make it stronger..

Steel = iron.. there no zinc in it..

please dont post if you dont know what your saying..
RE: Steel=Iron+zinc
# Oct 27 2005 at 4:31 PM Rating: Decent
Actually, he is kind of right. There are literally thousands of variations of steel. Although it doesn't have to be made with zinc. It is true that steel is not a compound, but an alloy. It is a mixture of iron and carbon, zinc is sometimes added to help prevent rust.

Can anyone confirm that the recipe using 4xbomb ash and 4xIron Sand caps at 54 and not 50? 13 synths after dinging 50 with not even a .1 skillup.

Nvm,Got a .2 skillup on the next time I tried on Firesday. ^^ I heard that skillups slow down after 50 but wasn't expecting that much of a difference.

I'm a 21 Smith, and I made a steel ingot out of 4 iron ores. I was making iron ingots during Lightsday, Waxing Gibbous (%81), then I saw a HQ animation and got a steel ingot.

Happens to me often, When conditions are favorable, It's actually more of a pain when you're TRYing for a Iron and get the steel though.
