So I should try to craft the item when it says Excellent? Or that is when I should touch?
You want to touch when it's good or excellent. The higher the condition when you touch, the more you add to the quality. Excellent is rare, so you can't really rely on it. It is ideal to use touch when you have good condition and are under the effects of Great Strides. Using it on an Excellent is all luck.
Ok I'm not understanding how they determine if it's rare or not.
I've had the hq bar half full and it'll turn out rare. Then I've had it 88% full but it won't be rare. Whats the d3al? --- Not changing this sig until a good SVR games comes out(started Feb. 1,2008) PSN:RG-BigDog71 Clan:RG---The Default CAS Champoin
