Can we talk about how "Create 3 Arbalests" is a mission? That right there is 3 Radiant Strings, which is enough to make a CRX-Bow...They're insanely difficult to get your hands on, let alone 3. There's cruel GM Missions, then there's just down right impossible/not happening. Ugh. Guess this is going to take longer than I anticipated.

    I feel that Radiant [Tough] Strings used to be uncommon drops until suddenly they became rarer than Hebona Robes.

    Rest in Peace crafted HLBs and Arbalests.

    Skip it and get another mission.

    You think I ever did the 4 player missions for Warrior when they first added Grandmaster.
    Nope!

    very true, anymore though the 4 Persons aren't nearly as difficult and people seem to actively enjoy running them. But there's just downright no way you can get assistance for Radiant Strings. Not only do you have to spam for the pass, you have to pray you or one of your 3 assumed friends get the drop. This dungeon revamp has me in rage too. As someone who just came back a month ago to all of these changes since 2015. The dungeon revamp by far irks me the most.

    Yeah, between "putting forth way too much effort than is worth", "using up valuable materials for 1 GM seal", or just NOT doing those missions and taking extra time to earn this Grandmaster, I always went for the last option.

    It's equally frustrating because I was under the impression I was going to be able to use this as an excuse to get closer to Master of Carpentry title for the quality bonus. But now I'm just wasting tons of mats in order to get the GM Bonus.

    For tailor GM I was given a quest to make three Long Swordsmanship School Uniform (F).

    Notice that there is no know way to get that tailor pattern.

    It's actually the Short Swordsmanship School Uniform (F).
    I made a thread about this on July 13th.
    Here is the thread if you wish to look

    It was answered by GM Mewlynne.

    Anything asking 4 me to give up even just one Radiant strings outside of CRXBOW will trigger PTSD.

    I used to have quite a few of them, way back when. My old Guild used to run AHM dungeons a lot looking for patron pieces/hebonas.

    I think I just dropped them, since I couldn't find a single buyer.

    Oh, how innocent I was.

    The OP perfectly describes my annoyance not only with Carpentry, but Medicine GM missions. While they're thankfully not as misleading as the tailoring mission that Redetsu mentioned, they do regularly ask for 300-point potions, Antidote potions or Poison Potions.

    First one is insanely annoying to do, as you need 20 four-leaf clovers which is made via synthesis (rank 1 alchemy mastery, synthesis, transmutation and rain casting on top of RA title and uniform is only 87% success rate), a high rank weaving (at least rank 5) to make braids and enough space to fit 20 bottles of water, although the other two are nowhere near as bad, just needing rank 5 and rank 3 potion making respectively.

    Yeah, lower your goals! Don't reach for the stars! Give up on your dreams! Settle for mediocre!

    Seriously, though the GM system sounds terrible. Why do people do them?

    Apparently life skill grandmasters are just as much hell as the talents themselves. I've done Cleric and Mage so far.

    @ArchdukeValeCortez , Grandmaster in general is a decent stat boost and now each one has a unique effect to make that talent just a little better. The stat boosts stack, the unique effects do not (but you can switch for 10 AP). I'm currently using GM Cleric since that's an exp boost for the party.

    Are you included in the party?
    If so,
    Does the 50% still apply if you are the only one in the party?
    If so,
    Is it only for the EXP you receive from mobs?

    I coulda sworn I didn't notice any extra exp when I was in a party by myself.
    And the bonus is just Combat EXP from mobs.

    "craft 3 HLB" is a thing too for the third mission of carpentry. (15 radiant strings)

    but, you just have to be in the talent to pick your first GM mission, then you can choose easy/doable quests of different talents as long as you already picked at least one quest in that talent before.

    for example, i pick first quest as a combat one (GM mission, short and easy : archer, warrior, puppet etc...), second one that need to be easy like carpentry or bard or whatever has horrid 1st and 3rd mission, and same on 3rd mission at the moment : blacksmith. With high rank synth and frag it's a walk in the park.
    I gamble on impossible missions when i won't mind having to give up... or have 300k to throw away

    here to help pick easy quests :

    but don't forget the recent changes
