    Ok, it's time now to post the results and announce the winners!

    Thank you all for this fantastic participation <3


    1000 Elven bows salvaged with salvaging skill at 120 + Obsidian reclamation potion.


    [​IMG]


    16 Elven Bow String
    16 Imbued Elven Bow String of Precision
    20 Imbued Elven Bow String of Speed
    12 Maple Long Bowstave
    16 Pine Long Bowstave
    34 Pattern: Elven Woodwind Long Bow
    14660 Wood Scraps



    Observations:

    - The results are terrible compared to some old tests. Did they nerfed the skill? who knows
    - Seems like the potion gives a better bonus compared to last 20 points of the skill (from GM to 120).
    - No worth the xp needed from GM to 120.


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


    Winner number:
    total strings obtained - 52

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

    Congratulation to @St Drahcir for the first place with 51!

    2nd place goes to @Vyrin with 53
    3rd place goes to @Joeziggy with 54

    Prizes will be sent via mail ingame today. We hope everyone enjoyed the contest!

    Thanks for this generous contest and interesting test. Maybe I should do more crafting...

    I plan on using the 10 cotos for a prize on something in the future...

    gratz to the winners...

    Question:
    did you salvage 1000 random bows or did you salvage 1000 bows that showed that they contain strings ?

    My experience is that this no longer matters, I melted 200 bows that were red and yellow with top end numbers from 0 to about 35 and still received about 1 imbued string per 16 bows. I have a 113 scrapping skill , Obs potion of reclamation and expert tables. (I also had the carpentry devotional buff, but that shouldn't have any effect.) I did this on 4/3/18

    Ok, so i should not bother with salvage skill because ....

    I MC and enchant bows, naturally lots of them break in the process.

    Now that with the ultra rare elven bowstrings.... not an option....

    Given that self made from cotton or leather compared do not have lousy stats either....

    I think the Devs overdid it a little with the rarity here... one bow in 15 or so one string ok.. but that is kinda bleh....

    Interesting that you got more imbued strings of speed than imbued strings of precision. I get mostly the precision ones and thought that the speed strings were more rare.

    Ha, I don't bother with masterworking or enchanting and only use special materials.

    Exactly , very rare, AND you need two strings per bow. This is actually OK with me, because it is a VERY powerful upgrade to the weapon and it makes the weapons that I do complete VERY valuable. My Alt KID TWIST sells a +12- +14 bow with imbued elven strings from 250K-400K per bow. These bows are not meant for everyone. If they made the strings easier to get, it would completely upend a very fragile ecosystem in the world of a master craftsman

    We begin to enter again though the realm of the one item to have though, I was rather fond of SotAs "gear does only matter secondary" feel
