I recently tried to make Caswyn, knowing full well this was going to become the biggest accomplishment in this game, but when I tried to craft it guess what? It fails... at 99%. I seriously cannot believe it. How does it fail at 1%?!! Getting the materials itself was already a pain, now I'm just stuck with partial mats that I can't even use. Whats the point in making stuff 99% only to see it fail after spending lots of time getting the mats..Sorry to vent..

    I've never done crafting but that happens to me occasionally when I'm synthesizing to make dyes. I'm at 99% and there have been times where I've failed twice in a row :/ I'm sorry that happened to you though.

    Personally, I chalk those moments up to abnormally bad luck or the RGN just plain cheating (I know, the RNG can't technically cheat, but it makes me feel better). I haven't made anything that needs super-rare mats yet, but there have been times where I've gotten catastrophic failures on items that should have been successes with mats that weren't really rare, but certainly still a hassle to gather, so I feel you. If I was about to cry after getting a catastrophic failure, in the rain, with Harvest Song active, on a Magic School Uniform (F) after 12 hours of gathering raw materials, spinning thread, buying weaving gloves, and making trying to make just the right grades of fabric...You must be just disgusted right now. I know I would be. *hugs the OP*

    Probabilities are probabilities after all. The only time you will get complete success is at 100% or 0%.
    It may seem like it's fixed, especially for something like Ferghus repairs.

    If anyone is bored, get a whole lot, a whole lot of cheap stuff, go to Ferghus and do repairs. If you do enough of them, you will get 90% as correct.

    But it's easier to do crafting instead.

    Oh gosh... D: I would be so devastated if I worked so hard to get everything needed to make something like Caswyn's Armor or Soluna Blade only to have it end up failing at 1% and losing most of your materials...

    Maybe you can try making a ticket to explain them about your situation? I'm sure they'd most likely understand and give you the materials again just to try again or maybe have one of the GMs make it for you?

    if it was me I would have sent a ticket.... that's just wrong :/ those mats took over a YEAR to collect. I would have been so upset if it happened to me. it kinda makes me nervous to make my divine blade. Really sorry to hear it happened

    I failed dragon scale at 99% but this is nothing compared to your loss....I don't get why production % is maxed at 99%. It's like they want to give us nightmare of 1%.

    working on refining...

    failed 8/20 99% iron ores
    but got 40/40 success on 75% gold ore.

    i needed to fail gold <.<



    plus. Elen's 90% success rate for repair. has never actually failed me.
    but Nerys's 95%. has had a 80% success rate.

    Strange because just a few hours ago I had failures trying to refine iron ore at 99% with a homestead forge. Maybe something is broke.

    Because in reality, there's no such thing as 100% success production.
    I failed twice at refining at 99% last night good thing it was only refining ingots.
    Unless they changed things to help people trying to rank up the skill at the "fail to" training parts, but that's a deceptive way of changing things.

    It makes me wonder if I should even try to make better equips now after seeing this.

    Mabinogi percentages are like the points in who's line is it anyway what it says don't matter.
    I've failed crafting stuff 6 times in a row with 99% I wish I could say it was once I hit such a streak which should be phenomenally low, but it was multiple times.
    I remember I think it was the 1st time they did a 100% repair event someone destroyed a weapon when it said 100% repair.

    Part of that was the first time they did it, it was only for blacksmith NPC's and people were repairing magic weapons and alchemy cylinders thinking it was also 100%

    I feel your pain. I remember when a guildie went to make bhafel huntress at 99% and failed. I've also failed 3 creepy burns at 86%. 2 were in a row xD RNG sucks

    I made a suggestion thread a while back complaining about this. The percentage is only accurate in very large sample sizes, its far too sporadic to represent small sample sizes. Only dealing in the hundreds of attempts will you only begin to see the RNG represent the actual percent chance.

    Aren't there craft potions that raise your chances by 2% so prevent this? Or are they just useless cause 99% is the hard cap even with those?

    99% is the hard cap even with those. There is no way to raise production rate to 100%, unless you're making an alpaca robe...
