    Default TRing does affect crafting.

    You keep your levels, but individual shard specialties reset.

    E.g.
    I TRed Agg after making 9 holy burst shards. When I TRed I had a 100% chance to make them (after 9 times the the 5% increased chance at success after you make each one)

    Now, looking at the recipe as a level 67 divine crafter (holy burst is level 72), I have only a 75% chance to craft a shard, and the xp is back up to 96. I'm unsure what it was when I TRed, but am certain it was not still around the 100xp mark.

    Just an FYI. Do with this as you see fit.

    Good to know, thanks.

    I'm unsure what to make of it, but I think I like it.

    Awesome!

    Now, delete the text in the OP and never speak of this again, or it will get nerfed.

    Nothing to see here, Devs. Move along.

    Nice. I shall have to do something with this information the next time the crafting level goes up.
    Things worthy of Standing Stone going EXTREME PREJUDICE™ on.:
    • NEW - Fix the flipping non-proficiency penalties for wildshape!
    • Redo the Favor rewards so there is a reason to do max favor again.
    • Redoing the drop rates of tomes in generic and raid loot tables.
    • Task Lynnabel with updating the remaining legacy named loot to not suck.
    • Tiering the Runearms so that artificers aren’t screwed out of the advantages of Cannith Crafting in Epic levels on their signature item.
    • Finishing the enhancement tree passes (including racial PrE’s) before rolling out yet another DDOStore™ Enhancement Tree.

    Wow that is VERY nice considering I'm getting close to TRing my crafter.

    Great info thank you.

    happens when you LR as well

    I didn't realize the XP was affected, I just knew the total shard counts got reset each time.

    So what effect does having the shards count reset have on your toon? Any?
    So if I am reading this correctly there is no negative aspect to TRing your crafting toon.

    There really isn't any negative aspect to TRing unless your crafter is your only character with access to 400 SF favor and 50 House C favor; when your favor get reset you won't be able to buy SF marks and House C marks any more. But you could always stock up in advance.

    They must have changed the way the xps on the shard recipes reset, because when I TR'd recently, all the recipes I had milked for xps were still returning the same low level of xps (or zero) as they were before I TR'd.

    'Negative' effect of TR'ing your crafter would be that, if you crafted a shard above your crafting levels several times, it will lose the 'bonus' to it gains from successfull crafting.

    For example, I am level 91 arcane, and I crafted a 'strength +6 shard' 10 times, I will have 100% of crafting +6 strength shards at that point because of the bonus to succesrate you get from successfully crafting a specific shard. However, when i TR/LR, it resets the 10x having crafted a +6 strength shard, so my chance suddenly drops down to 54%.

    The disadvantage of this is that I can fail the crafting again, and thus, lose precious essences if you're a bit unlucky. The advantage though is, it will also allow you to gain decent amounts of xp from the shard again.

    sorta a disadvantage is losing the access to cheap silver flame marks, yugoloth marks, and cannith marks, if you don't have other chars with the required favor.

    Its worked that way for some time. Any reincarnate (LR/GR/TR) resets your crafting counters, but not your XP.

    Nope, I TRed my crafter and all was well. Had I been borderline on my ability to craft any shards I cared about, there would have been a temporary negative from the loss of the chance to create bonuses you get for making the same shard over and over. But for me that was more than offset by the ability to once again get full crafting \XP from the in range shards.

    With the impending enhancement pass and the LR heart we are going to get has anyone checked this on Lamma?

    I would like to use one of the free stones on my crafter, but not if I will lose any crafting levels.

    Been a while since you asked your question, but I used the LR+20 on my crafter and the XP stayed the same. In my case I actually gained some levels due to arti/dragonmark of making.

    Didn't check any of the stones I'd previously crafted to see if they reset. Assumed they did, haven't crafted much in a while though. Just not a lot out there worth making for my one character I play.
