I was maken Iron ingots, When i got a steel ingot i was like holy S&*T. My Smithing is 29 so it has to be possible that Steel ingots could be a HQ from maken the Iron ore.
Pretty sure desynth caps...

I believe the recipe level for desynthing Goblin Mail and Goblin Helm caps at 19. I was getting skillups on these until level 19. After that, the skillups stopped.

im only lvl 22 smithing and i h.q gob helms and armor like no tomorrow....
for instant if i buy 5 helms i get 3 steel ingots 1 iron and either a bronze or breakage...
but in all for 5k spent on helms i make 15+ K in a matter of minutes...
so i doubt that max skill up is 30 on these items as per i get no skill ups....<ever>

Unfortunately, desynth can be that sporatic... however you may be right.

My record was 32 desynths w/o a skill up... Just to give a point of reference to my statement.

Just checked somepage... it's 19 not 30...

Recently added, unbenounced to me, Steel ingots are the HQ' version of this synth, aka 4x iron ore = 1 iron ingot, HQ = 1 steel ingot. I recently found this out after trying to make regular iron ingots at lvl 59 smithing
# Jan 07 2005 at 6:59 PM Rating: Decent
Goblin Helms can make either 1Bronze Ingot, 1Iron Ingot, or 1Steel Ingot. The Steel Ingot being the HQ2 synth. Your success rate in getting Steel Ingots is all based on your Smithing skill level (the higher it is the better chance you have). you can desynth Goblin Helms at a minimum skill of around 25 (I DO NOT RECCOMEND THIS, AT ALL). Its a bettr idea to wait until around lv50 or so, and the main reason is because you have a very high chance of getting HQs at that level. lv30 skill is decent too.
Another recipe

Fire + Iron ore + 6x Iron nugget works also (as you'd expect). Sucks failing and losing a few though, since those nuggets are hard to find.

Got mine from desynthing katanas.

Normal Results, I believe its all based on lvl of your Leathercraft
Lightning + LeatherBelt = Sheep Leather
HQ: Sheep leather
HQ2: 1 Iron Ingot
HQ3: 2 Iron Ingot

Kasber is correct. I am level 30 Smithing and when I use a lightning crystal and an Antican Pauldron, it says it's beyond my skill level. Please change this to the correct value. I've had pauldrons clogging up my safe and I'd like some accurate information please.

Desythning has it's own cap. Example: Solea in leather craft has a cap at 13 for making them and breaking them down.

As stated below on a couple posts...Yes by de-synthing Lightning x1, Gob Mails= either 3 Bronze Ingots, 2 Iron Igots, or 1 Steel Ingot. The true required skill for this to really get best results is 30 Blacksmithing for sure. In de-synthing items there is no skill gains at all...De-synthing is in its own entity...Gob Helms are good to =)
This is a good way to accumulate Iron Ingots for Skill Building or for profit reasons. Also, I've heard to never de-synth on Watersdays cuz you have lesser chance of success. The higher or closer you are to LVL 30 Blacksmithing the better the results and success in de-synthing these =)

I have gotten gains from desynthing actually. I was trying to break down some low level Leather craft armor, and it was gave me a .1 gain in Leather before I broke the armor.

I think Beast-made items don't give gains since they aren't crafted using any craft we know.

I have gotten point gains from desynthing gob helms a few times; however, this was below smith level 15, so maybe there's a cap somewhere.
4 Iron Ore + Fire

The max limit growth is wrong for 4 iron ore + fire.
Is it lv. 20 when you stop gaining skills from it.

OK, heres what they do
# Jan 28 2004 at 6:34 PM Rating: Default
MY friend whos a level 28 smith has told me this. You use a lightning crystal. Goblin helms will give a single steel iron or bronze ingot. The better your skill is, the more likely you'll get the better ingot (Steel>Iron>Bronze). Goblin mails will give you 1 steel ingot, 2 iron ingots, or 3 bronze ingots. My friend said around level 28 he most commonly got steel, so I'm guessing maybe 23-25 you'll get the two irons.
The Skinny

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.

lightning + gob helm don't make Iron Ingot
# Dec 30 2003 at 10:01 AM Rating: Default
sorry guy
I just tested and it don't make iron ingot. It make Bronze Ingot instead.
RE: lightning + gob helm don't make Iron Ingot

A lightning Crystal + a Goblin Helmet does indeed produce a iron ingot, but that is on hq 1 or 2 results.

aight I try 7 time to use this recipe and it does make iron ingot but rarely and hard and it also make bronze ingot. I'm a lvl 20 blacksmith and 4 lightning crystal broken in row. If only they were always iron ingot :(
From lightning?
# Dec 13 2003 at 6:18 PM Rating: Default
I presume it's another goblin recipe, but I just saw someone pull an iron ingot out of a lightning crystal...of course, don't know what he used. :/
RE: From lightning?

I think it's on light crystal, not lighting. Light are kinda rare but can be buy or get fro cardians close of Windurst
RE: From lightning?
# Jan 07 2004 at 11:58 AM Rating: Default
Though it can make steel too, are they the same?

Steel is the HQ version, if I'm not mistaken.
