Be honest, how many questions did you get it right? (if all options are correct, it counts as right)

  1. None. I have no idea what this crafting thing is about anyway. Can't even understand what you typed.

    I've added a poll. :really:

    Btw, the title picture was modified from "So you think you can dance". Google that and click "images", and you'll see...

    I got 9/10, but three of the answers have no definite answer.

    Nice job!
    And yes, 3 questions were a "give-away" of points to make the average score higher for everyone (na, that wasn't the intention. It just happened by chance :p ), so it's technically just 7 questions.

    Well, this was technically constructed for fresh Builder of the Realm, since most of the cross class skills listed here are level 50 skills from multiple classes. It also kind of advices on people that the Builder title, despite being quite charming, does not necessary reflect the player's crafting ability.

    If you can't understand anything written here, it's not ignorance. It's just because you have not reached that stage yet. The targeted audience of the test are people who possess most of those cross class skills, and are on their way to mastership.

    I knew Hermes well back then when he was making HQ rose gold nuggets from pure NQ mats before he even had multiple lvl 50 skills. He always pushes everything to the limit. He was creating rotations that maximize the lvl 15 cross class skills he had. He didn't have the Builder title back then, but I already recognize him as a very good crafter. So to me, it makes perfect sense that he would score high here.

    Do not be discouraged, Jin! Someone like Hermes who scored high here won't be benefited much from this. It is the people who score lower here who would actually learn something new. This is what the test was designd for - not to make people feel bad, but to help fresh crafters understand how to make the right decision on the spot! So, hopefully this little test here would actually help you improve too! :wink:

    Seeing how this little test has been gone missing in the ocean of threads, I converted it into a guide, so it can now be found in the guide section. Since it's not an actual thread, I cannot have a poll in there on the main page anymore. However, the old discussion seems to exist just fine here, and the old poll still remains on this discussion page.

    I think I'll hold off on taking your quiz Caimie I get the feeling that this is for people who are at a high level for crafting. Especially since your talking about stuff for which I don't have the slightest clue.

    Speaking of the content of your quiz what does condition do anyway? I just got it and the explanation is pretty vague.
