So, here is the thing. I haven't played for a year, maybe more. And my greensteel rapier was almost finished, but not finished yet. When I was crafting it, there were many steps to complete, now I find that there are only a few. So, my problem is that my rapier is almost finished, but I'm missing "Radiance" (Not "Aspect of Radiance". Just Radiance.) But with this new system (or maybe it's the same system and I'm just an idiot), it seems I can't complete it. In other words, if we can divide the whole crafting process into 4, I'm in step 3,80, but can't get to 4.
Here is an screenshot of my rapier:
And it should look exactly the same, but with the "Radiance" word and description added. (Blinding enemies and dealing +4d6, both things during crit).
So, any ideas about a way to complete it? Suggestions?
I'm no GS expert, but I think this is what you're looking for:
At the crafting planner (first link) I entered the following options:
Item: Green Steel Rapier
Tier 1: Flaming - Fire/Dom/Mat
Tier 2: Good Burst - Pos/Dom/Mat
Tier 2 Bonus: Aspect of Radiance
Tier 3 Effect: Fire Blast - Fire/Dom/Mat [you get this one]
Tier 3 2nd: Good Blast - Pos/Dom/Mat [you don't get this one]
Tier 3 Bonus: Aspect of Radiance II (your light dmg and blinding effects)
Your GS is at step 4.
You already added the tier 3 benefit (Insight Dex +2), but on the altar recipe choice you forgot to click on the option that would add Dex +2 AND Radiance, instead clicking only the recipe that adds Dex +2.
Sorry to say that. You have to start over.
When doing a double shard GS, you need to fuse both imbued supreme shards into a double shard. Many people forget this step and try to use them one at a time on the weapon.

Like: dex+2 first, then radiance. Not all at the same time. Double shards didn't even exist. I needed only a focus of fire I think (not superior, just normal).
Dual Shards have existed since Green Steel was added. It just took some time for people to discover the recipes. You have already added a Tier 3 shard to this item, so there is nothing more that you can do to it. The two Tier 3 shards should have been combined together, and then added to the item. And yes, you could do this before it was converted over to the barter box system.

There was nothing called "Dual Shards". And I had the recipe for the item, and followed it step by step. I only failed when creating the last ingredient, I created a focus of water when I needed a focus of fire (but I didn't apply it to the weapon of course). That was the only item I needed, and by combining it with the same rapier I have now and a supreme shard of power (not double), I would have the complete one. But I guess right now, there is nothing I can do :(

Dual shards Have indeed been around forever. MinII LitII VacII RadII etc are dual shards. As people have already pointed out, you made a mistake while crafting this rapier. Next time, make a pos shard, then make a fire shard, then combine those 2 shards into a Rad shard. It is crazy easy to do with the barter box system, you just need to be careful to pick the right option when combining the 2 shards.
