Crafting rare items (Selki Polar Dagger): Ok, so someone works uber hard just to get the Soul Urn (2x), and has a low % in getting the Kit, and now has to face a low % of creating the Weapon itself... not cool if all the work placed goes for naught.
Even with Kazno stones those types of drops are pretty darn rare. They're meant to be, and it can be frustrating definitely. I just don't worry about it and if I get one, great, if not, I'll live.
On crafting rare items, the idea is to use the normal stuff to level up your crafting level until you get to max success on the rare ones. Same for the kits/jellies, the refiners/alchemists should level up their crafting before trying them. That way you have less chance of losing the rare stuff. Although it is kinda annoying you can never quite get 100% on most rare armor/weapons/accessories.
