Would like to craft 600gs without using minor trophies :slight_smile:

Trophies don’t increase your maximum gearscore potential, just the minimum, so if you don’t have a 600 max then you are missing a piece of equipment, using the wrong food, or have a lower quality material in one of the slots.

Am I missing something? I saw no increase or decrease with minimum or maximum when taking the trophy off the wall and putting it back on.

i think he means he isn’t getting the +5 minimum from major trophy

He says he cannot craft BIS engineering items, that would only be true if the trophy added to maximum, which it doesn’t.

I was wondering this myself.

Let’s say without minor trophy my infused gloves have a gear score range of 500 - 505.

With minor trophy, would the range be
503 - 505?


I think OP is saying the trophy isn’t visually showing that the major trophies are increasing the range. Hence why he talks about using minors instead

same problem here. I spend 30K to level up my furnishing so i can upgrade my engineering trophies to major ones, and now my base gear score decreased from 587 to 575. I basically spend 30K to have a lower gear score to my crafts.

I don’t know why, but I think my issue has been resolved with a world restart

I wonder what happens if I take them down again

Multiple people i know have max engineering trophies and have never mentioned issues with them. Are you sure you arent just getting a visual bug on the GS craft?

I noticed that when placing a trophy for crafting there is a lag to when the buff becomes active. When I fast traveled to place back my armoring trophies and crafted jewelry right after it wouldn’t add buff minimum. Now I place trophies few hours prior to crafting session just to make sure the buff is effective.

I don’t know if it is a visual bug and I do not want to test it with expensive materials. I do know that it resolved itself after a couple days so perhaps a world restart fixed it.
