Skills Mastery AA's / Salvage

Post by Silly » Tue Aug 30, 2005 8:24 am

Thought a post listing of who has/is working on Tradeskill aa's might be handy for guild reference.

I'll start:

Salvage 3
Tailoring Mastery 3
Fletching Mastery 1

My tailoring isn't maxxed, but considering it is one of the "lesser done" tradeskills I thought it worthwhile to make the investement of aa's. If anyone needs any combines done I'd be happy to, and the success seems to be pretty darned good even well past my trivial.

Skills before geerloks/mods:
Baking: 261
Fletching: 255
Brewing: 250
Jewelcraft: 246
Tailoring: 248
Smithing: 222
Pottery: 220

Alchemy is 300 (315) with GM bag
AM3 (alchemy mastery)
Salvage 3

Willing to make any aug you want.. just get it cut first (radiant) and have the ingridents available. I can walk you through it if you need help..

Or if you need any of those nice healing/hot potions for alot cheaper then off npc i can make them for about 11 plat per (vs 39plat) if Nodding Blue Lily is provided, it is the foraged/dropped compenent.

Tailoring 233 Tailoring Mastery 1
Blacksmithing 222

Why are there so many good AAs to spend on, and so little time to play :/

Blacksmithing - 239 + 5%
Tailoring - 270 + 5%
Pottery - 274 + 5%
Baking - 300 + 5%
Brewing - 300 + 5%
Fletching - 300 + 5%
Jewelcraft - 300 + 5%

No AAs... plan to get smithing and tailoring to help with high level cultural combines.

Alchemy - 300 + 5%

Salvage 1

Tinkering - 274 + 5%

no AAs

One (or a few) thing to note about mastery AAs based on what I've read at

The highest trivial out there right now is 386 for the DoN chest and leg armor/symbols.
At 315 skill with no AAs, the success rate is 77% - with mastery 3 it's 88.5% - not a bad increase

The next highest is 368 for the sleeves. At 315 - 90.5% without AAs, 95% with mastery 3 - still a decent increase

Next is 351 for the hardest augments. At 315 skill you have 95% chance of success without any AAs and ALSO 95% chance with mastery 3...

My point is, once you get high enough that you have a 95% chance of success, the mastery wont help anymore, so if you're up at the high end, you may want to think twice before spending the AAs.

This could all change if Darkhollow has recipes with 500 trivial, of course...

Side note - no matter how high your skill, or trivial a combine is, you will always have a 5% chance of failure, UNLESS... The failure rate is reduced 1% for every 40 above trivial you are. SO, if you can manage to get 200 points above the trivial for an item, you FINALLY wont fail it anymore =)

Salvage AA is good no matter what...

I have Alchemy Mastery 3, but my skill is still low around 220. Anyhow, I just skill my way up slowly doing Potions that I consume myself. The Mastery helps certainly with having not to much fails so that I actuall;y have some Elixiers to show :)

Working at the moment on smithing AA (have 1st Rank). My skill should be soon in the Range that I can attempt cultural Iksar Armor (It's 247 now, hope to break 250+ by end of next week)

If I go for Salvage AA soon depends pretty much what DoDH is giving us as new AAs. If theres nothing that floats my boat right away I might finishish Salvage first.
