    1. maybe because crafted equipment is “less” useful because of missing hidden bonus….
      so with bouncer skill, crafted equipment will be on par or maybe better than non crafted *10/*11/*12

    2. That’s another issue, but I what I meant was that it was strange that only Bouncer gets these skills when you can craft equipment for every class.

    3. You can also sub bouncer with any other class, can’t you? That keeps the crafting mastery fair-ish, though particularly useful for jet boots and dual swords I guess

    4. That only applies to Rare (*7-*12) extended weapons; Non-Rare (*1-*6) extended weapons don’t suffer any increased hidden DEX variance, but they also can’t have potentials.

      Potentials may make up for damage in other ways, and weapons under *10 don’t activate Rare Mastery skills, but extended *1-*6 have very low damage variance (just like unextended, non-Red/Blue weapons) and are therefore otherwise reliable for extending.

    5. 1-6 star weapons don’t suffer any increased damage variance because they have terrible damage variance to start with. With regards to damage variance, they’re exactly the same as crafted weapons already. So no, they’re no better than anything else.

  1. I totally called something like this “element storing” system. Glad to see my mental vibes reached sega after a year. XD

    *Starts sending more good idea vibes to sega*
