    Morning o/

    I wanna start saying I would have never expected this volume of participation, totally unexpected. Thank you all so much!

    Now is time to announce winners and post all the mats we got from this crazy test we did two days ago.


    Malarkey from 100 salvaging skill to 108 (lvled in the process) + Obsidian reclamation potion.



    [​IMG]

    14 Elven Bow String
    7 Imbued Elven Bow String of Precision
    9 Imbued Elven Bow String of Speed
    9 Maple Long Bowstave
    14 Pine Long Bowstave
    22 Pattern: Elven Woodwind Long Bow
    6800 Wood Scraps


    Rada from 90 salvaging skill (locked) + Obsidian reclamation potion.

    [​IMG]

    14 Elven Bow String
    8 Imbued Elven Bow String of Precision
    7 Imbued Elven Bow String of Speed
    10 Maple Long Bowstave
    10 Pine Long Bowstave
    31 Pattern: Elven Woodwind Long Bow
    7200 Wood Scraps


    Observations:
    - We did not find any real improvement with 10-18 higher salvaging skill points.
    - Nearly double Elven bow strings compared to imbued strings in both cases.



    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

    RESULTS: total strings obtained from 1000 Elven bows - 59

    Congratulation to @Adam Crow for the first place!!!

    We have a tie for second place, as we say, the number closest without going over wins.

    2nd place goes to @Leelu
    3rd place goes to @Mototopo


    Prizes will be sent via mail ingame today. We hope everyone enjoyed this small game!

    Now the contest finished I think it would be nice to keep the thread in the crafting forum.

    @Berek or any other mod.

    Please @Adam Crow and @Mototopo send me your ingame names via pm or post here :)

    congrats

    that seems a rare drop indeed (my woodwind elven bows don't show any special items like bandit blades do)

    so @Rada Torment do the bows show any special ingredients when hovering over them and hitting control-key?

    Some do and some dont, but they can all produce the strings.

    Thank you for a fun contest, @Rada Torment .
    I hesitated writing this, but I believe you've made an error in your winners announcement here.
    Mototopo's entry was 60 (sorry @Mototopo ).

    I am perplexed Colgarra
    i voted 60
    Adam voted 59
    leelu voted 58
    Correct answer was 59, Rada told that in case of same distance from the correct answer the preferred result was the lover number, i was +1, leelu was -1 so he declared Adam winner, second Leelu, me thirdh
    It seem correct to me, what is wrong?

    What Mototopo said.

    There was a tie with 58 and 60, by just one point difference from the winner number 59, so in case of a tie the lowest one win (the second place) and then the third number closest to 59 is 60 (Mototopo).

    Sorry for any misunderstood Colgarra.

    I understand now.... sorry for my confusion.
    I had thought you said "without going over", but we're all good. ;)

    ** Edit **
    I've always been a stickler for accuracy, and want to show you why I thought you might be in error... From the OP:

    Just want to set the record straight so I'm not thought of as a "sore loser"... ;)

    Does it seem to anyone else that the 90 Salvaging did BETTER than the 108 Salvaging? Does it perhaps take into account your Carpentry itself? (or total points in the tree maybe?) Just theorizing...

    We need the data to check this out. What is the base Carpentry skill level and the total points in the tree for both salvagers?

    We both have Carpentry skill GM 70.7 proficiency

    Afaik there is not any other skill adding anything to salvaging, but sometimes we know, as players, nothing :D
