trivial nerf?

Has the trivial level been changed on this item? I created one last night with my High Elf Paladin, skill 194. Using the new tradeskill interface that shows the various recipes available along with the trivials, the trivial for this one was 202! I know that my skill shows at the top of the window (194/203 with geerlok), but the recipe trivial shows also in the window with each recipe available. I was astonished at what I saw. Does anyone know if the trivials were nerfed with the new expansion?

I have a lvl 45 ROG with a skill lvl of 204. I am usually successful 3 out of 5 trys in making this bow. The price of the bow staff on Xegony is 360pp even with 253CHA, and the cams are 38pp each, for a total of 436pp, (not to include the string and whitleing blade). However I get different stats than what is posted for silk string. My stats read 44/22, (am I doing something wrong?). I'm also makeing DMG8 DB6 arrows that are class 6 silver tiped steel arrows rang 150,
*silver arrow heads
*steel shaft
*ceramic veins
*small nock
They cost a fortune to make, but sell well to high lvl RNG and WAR. This arrow has a very high success rate for me, about 90%, and will bring me clear over the 220 skill lvl.

ps: The DB (damage bonus) is in relation to my lvl 45 ROG, yours my differ due to lvl and/or race/class. Also, I recomend the Glowing Black Sword (+20 DEX) in the secondary slot in use with the Geerlock Planing Tool (+5% to fletching) in primary.

Those stats make it sound like this bow was strung with linen string... or whittled or something. That's weird.
cheaper way to make

At level 22, there is no bonus damage. You start accruing bonus damage at 28 and it goes up something like 1 point every two levels, I think. Whoever took the screenshot for the item description was obviously of sufficient level to get such a high DB.
If you were me and I were you, would we still be friends?

First, bows and arrows dont have a DB even though it is shown in game... thats why you dont see them here.

Second, DB is 1 point every 3 levels IIRC...

but other than that you are perfectly correct!!

I believe I was lucky today. I made one on my first combine attempt with a skill of 185. Materials cost me about 485pp with a charisma of 85 and purchased in the plane of Knowledge. I will give this one to my alt lvl 6 Ranger. I really want to develop my skill, but after I reach 202, I'll have to start making EXPENSIVE bows from that point forward because there are no more arrows to make to skill up unless you are a Wood Elf making cultural arrows (I am a High Elf).

I've figured my costs of production to be under 500 without fails, around 446 I THINK was the number I got, but its around that with best 203 skill + a geerlok tool, I can make them with an approx 6/10 success rate, I have made a total of 33 of them, and have sold them all, started at 1.5k when I first started making them, and down to 1k, my bottom price. If interested on E'ci, contact Kallesin or Dartian
Some advice...

Get some buffs before you attempt this. Dex and Wis buffs help with making one, and definitely get a Cha buff to get your buying price down and selling price up. A Geerlock tool helps too if you can get one. That way a failure won't hurt so much.

Actually, the higher of Dex, Wis, and Int, determine skill-ups (in fletching). The only thing that determines success is skill (which is increased with a Geerlock).

first attempt at this bow, fletching of 191 and success!!!!!! even got a skill increase from it.
sweet bow

I also fletched this monster took me 4 trys but even at that its still worth it the price that ala gives is really bogus ive seen this sucker sell for 1900 to 3k on prexus and well worth every pp maxed to the hilt on buffs using cheaper than dirt arrows and got crits starting at 150 and a 205 just wish i had more arrows i was doing more damage with my bow than the warrior had to root the dang mob just to keep him off me and by the way im 202 in fleetching too if you guys are there on fleetching dont waste time and money on the stupid dark wood its not worth the time plus your going to loose lots of plat trying to improve your skill

I made this bow with my Ranger who has a 202 Fletching skill.... I failed one and made one. They are expensive to make, so the one success cost me over 900pp ouch. But it is awesome! And my friend wields it proudly : )

Anyone on Ayonae Ro, who is interested in having this bow made can contact my Ranger - Flawless Finebow.

PS... I'll be working on skill to get closer to that 250 trivial mark hehe

Currently at 204 Fletching, I'll hit combine for free if you wanna buy the bow parts. Send me a tell, or post a message on our guild message board. This thing is past my trivial level, so no guarantees of course.
