is heca cap tier 0?
Yes, it is. It caps at level 97 bonecraft but has no subcraft, still thats 1 in 100 average rates.
It's a royal pain in the @$$ because the ingredients are
1x Angel Skin
1x Darksteel cap
The angel skin costs like 500-550k (but ALL 5 hecatomb pieces use one of these, it's basically 100% loss so if you break the synth you will lose the angel skin. I DO* say basically because its not perfect 100% loss but its so high it may as well be. I have only ever saved one angel skin in any high level crafting material in all my time, like elemental ores it's an extremely volatile material.
The other is that Darksteel Caps are never on auction, so I have to be able to either make them myself (high level smithing), or find a smither to supply me with them.
The only redeeming grace of these is they have some resell value. Unlike subligar which abjy is so much rarer the N head at least sells on auction house, so over time you can get some money back. I'm hoping for some good luck, but either way I'll wait.
I'm not particularly worried about it. I've already mentioned I leveled 2 crafts to 100 in the past, so between goldsmithing and bonecraft i make a living. I currently have some other synths i'm aiming to try and hq (READ: Stored up a buncha wyrm horns to shoot for signed dragon harness +1), but all in all I'll probably just wait several months and try to one shot it by just doing a lot of synthes at once till it hqs. I'll post when i get it so you can see a timeline hehe. Lets hope for some luck. Edited, May 23rd 2008 1:23pm by Melphina
