Crestra's Earring Overview

In the Ring of Scale, players may begin a new Tradeskill based Earring quest. The final reward for this when combined with a Raid based drop, produces an Earring about 1-2 tiers or so above the best Raid Earrings you can loot.

Quest Chain:
Here or Over There?
Details of the Sky
Weight of the Sky
Gorowyn Wares
Measure of the Dead
Journey Into Terror

Upon completing Journey Into Terror, you will then have to combine the final Earring with a Flawless Conflagrant Diamond in a Jewelry Making Table. This will create Crestra's Empowered Earring. NOTE- This combine CAN fail.






Pre Loot List:
Most or All of these drops are tradeable, so you can buy them in the Bazaar or from players. The Subcombine completion parts of the quests are also generally tradeable, so you can also buy those versions.

You can also pre-loot all drops, you will need at least 1 of each to get Collect updates during the quest. To get the update you can simply trade the item, turn it in to an NPC (updates on getting back), put it in a TS container and take it back out, and so on.

All or Most pieces are only in Ring of Scale, some things you can pre-buy or pre-make in PoK.

The following pieces will be put into sections of which quest they are related to, see the appropriate Quest for extra details on how to get the pieces if they require more specific detail.

The tool sub combines can be seen on their respective (when used) quests, you may be able to buy some in PoK

As of the 18 April patch, all of the T/S combines for this now require a min skill of 300, other than fishing.



Re: Crestra's Earring Overview By: Metanis On: January 23, 2018, 04:39:07 PM

Today I'm reading on the DBG Veteran's boards that collection pieces can still be traded but it must be the zone in which it was intended for you to loot that piece. There was some sort of change to back-end code at DBG that made this change in behavior.



Re: Crestra's Earring Overview By: Metanis On: January 22, 2018, 10:49:49 AM

As of the 1/17/18 patch you can no longer pre-loot the "collection" updates. Yes, you can pre-loot for the actual tradeskilling but you won't get credit for the collect unless you actually take the item off the killed mob. No more handing in the pieces to Cresta to get your collect updates.

Update part 2:

"And the fail chance on the earring is higher than I mentioned. I realized I missed a bit of math when speaking with you. But it is still relatively low. And still intentional "



Re: Crestra's Earring Overview By: Denial Sinfae On: December 19, 2017, 02:30:37 PM

Update from Ngreth:

"Yes. The Crestra's Empowered Elegant Earring combine is intentionally failable. And if you Fail you get the Crestra's Elegant Earring back. The failure chance is LOW if you have a 300 skill but non-zero. (Around 3% (not exact) fail chance at 300 skill)

Other Raid FINAL combines are no fail.
Other raid SUB combines are not no-fail AND high skill. They also sometimes return the diamond. Sometimes they only return the crushed diamond dust, but this is on the "alt fail" which is when you miss the fail the combine but only by 5."

Might want to add at the top where it mentions the final combine to empower it that the final combine CAN BE FAILED.  I've requested clarification if this was intended or not, as all empowered combines in EOK were no fail.

Added note after, thanks
