Out of era synthesis: Crimson Ring

Post by pan » Sat Nov 03, 2018 10:17 pm

Howdy children of Eden,

I synthed a crimson ring earlier: https://ffxiclopedia.fandom.com/wiki/Crimson_Ring

which is not era. After posting the report: https://github.com/EdenServer/community/issues/270

Godmode suggested to make a post to collect opinions.

I'm neutral on this myself, but I'll try to make some arguments for and against it.

Contra:
1. It's not era, thus doesn't belong here. If I'm not mistaked it was added very late into ToAU together with the star sapphire synths.
2. It competes with Ruby Rings, but with the soon to come ele-bead infaltion this will be neglectable I suppose.

Godmode said it would take flame rings "out of business", but the NQ crimson only gives +4 and very unlikely to HQ, so why waste 100 O.Rings for a point in strenght you can have with a single snyth of a flame ring. Not going into the HP stats, there are way better options for ppl who care about maximizing HP. ( It's a WS only item 80% of the time, I suppose. For zerging there are two much better options, so it should be negelectible )

Pro:
1. It's a cheap alternative to ruby rings, which's supply is very low
2. From a goldsmiths perspective it's a comparably cheap synth to close the gap to beaded rings.

Hm, I had thought it was a later synth, but yeah it came out a couple months before wotg. For that reason alone I have no problem with it.

Looks era to me. Came out in August of 2007. Wings of the Goddess came out in November 2007. We should leave it.
