    Synth for ship components

    Not that I expect much to happen with this suggestion but here it goes anyway.

    Since the game direction is leading toward the synth concept with most things my recommendation is to do the same with ship parts.

    Since most designs are not used at this time and from what I have seen in NA not too many people work on boats. If we change to this concept this will give us better potential at getting higher grade items for our ships. Additionally this will find use for designs that otherwise are not being used.

    The concept is much the same as other items. You can use lower grade ship components or make an item out of brinebound rocks.

    The hope is that this will also give some better engagement at events such as Lusca /Abyss / Kraken / Levi

    I'm all for this in synthing up the grade, but the issue with the part blueprints is that the T1 version, Seabreeze, is uber-rare to get. I have tons of blueprints for T2 and higher but their worthless without the T1 prints. A swap to the loot table on blueprints would be a nice fix.

    You'd think any designer with even a remote sense of game design would make the best one really rare and then more and more common the closer to the starter you get. That is, if you were designing with players and fun in mind. That is obviously not the goal of XL.
    Epic Erenor Scepter - 856 Magic Att, 733 gimped DPS.
    Epic Erenor Katana - 815.3 DPS.
    Epic Erenor Bow - 693 DPS... worse than the gimped weapon even though it's a primary weapon.
    "Balance" . . . This doesn't even take in to account the 978.4 epic erenor nodachi, or 978 mAtt staff.

    Yeah they need to fix the drop rates for some items but most of those tiers really dont change in grade so it shouldnt impact this idea.

    This would truly affect Sails/cannons/figureheads
