Impossible Skill training task?
Since the Enlightenment patch, is it now impossible to train "Successfully make a crystal which not require magic casting"? Only seen from ranks E-A. I thought maybe could be done via Synthesis cloning but those crystal formulas don't work anymore either.
You're right, this can't be done any more, and so you can't train that req. The only available option to you is to use the training medal from the event, or wait it out. Eventually they do revamp it, I think maybe at the druid update, but possibly as late as vate.
I don't see any rank that you NEED to make non magic casting crystals. Looks to me you can get through any rank without it. Might be a little harder, but it's possible.
Based on the list of skill reqs, Meru's right, you can still rank up without using the crystals, but you'll still have to do mana crystallization. I didn't really look at it the first time because I was just going off what I'd heard from low rank alchemists.
Shouldn't "Successfully make a Rank # crystal." also be gone too, since magic crystal quality is gone?
Yes, it is on the nexon bugs and glitches forum's known issues list.
I've been training this recently and noticed the crystal making requirements past r9(?) have changed to "Make a crystal at Mana Crystallization Rank X or above." Currently, r3 Alchemy Mastery wants r5 Mana Crystallization made crystals. The amount and training experience given is the same.
Did they fix it since Vates or are alchemists still doomed?
