Actually as far as i know, might be wrong the drop rate of ecto between rare and exotic is exactly the same since it actually depends on the salvage kit. that being said there is a difference in that rare can drop a max of 3 ecto and exotic can drop a maximum of 5. Cost to benefit ratio though rare is more profitable.

Actually the senario I thought of was far less insulting that the one you came up with. I thought it was more something along the lines of hearing part of the story something akin to if you craft and salvage the new recipes you can make a ton of money as the ectos you get far outwiegh the cost. I was working under the premise you didnt know what recipe it was and not that you knew what the recipe was but still used the wrong one.

There are a few recipes? just for wintersday there were 275 new recipes added to the game how is that a few?
Anyhow I never said you're lying, its possible what you said is true and you were just unlucky. If thats the case and you truely have a history of crafting and salvaging large amount of items I would have told that to support rather then the fact you used orichalcum instead of mythril.

To be fair if you had to compare the return from an orichalcum wintersday jewel with a regular jewel the return you get even if it doesnt result in a profit it would still be far larger then 2%

lets crunch some numbers:
a typical earing required: an orichalcum hook and an orichalcum setting + 5x exquisite jewels
the 5x exquisite jewels consist of 5x ecto, 5x orichalcum filigree, 5x raw jewel

the snowflake one required orichalcum hook and an orichalcum setting + 1x exquisite jewels
the exquisite jewel required 1 ecto, 1 snowflake an 1 orichalcum filgree

salvaging the real thing gave you back 0 - 5 ecto, some orichalcum and 80% of get a jewel back
salvaging the snowflake one gave you back 0 -5 ecto, some orichalcum and 80% of getting essentailly all the jewels back.

all things being equal the snowflake one was still 300% as profitable as the real deal at least, right?

A snowflake

Maybe I am realy unlucky but in the 100-150 salvages of those ectos + the at least 100 other exotics I salvaged with either black lion and master salvage kits I never even once had 4 or 5 globs out of it. And in the few thousands of rares with master salvage kits the avarage glob ratio was 0.9 glob per salvage. While in the 150 salvages of exotics with master salvage kits the avarage was 1.2.

And yeah the number of new recipes was something like 275. But if you use common sense for 90 %+ of the players it only was 6. Weapon clothing and accesory in rare and exotic form.(oke you have every kind of weapon and every type of clothing but still if you know 1 you know all)

And yeah the recipe in the original state was way cheaper and more profitable(cause the normal ones are big loss makers) then normal recipes. But don't forget the fact that it are event items. If you look at the halloween Amulet (http://www.gw2spidy.com/recipe/6483) it still only cost 3 jewels(+150 Candy) making it 40 % cheaper then original recipes.

And if you look at (http://www.gw2spidy.com/recipe/6816) an other xmas event item. It only costs 8 snowflakes(wich replace t5 mats) in stead of 15. While I wasn't banned this was the cheapest rare to craft because snowflakes were 1,2 S back then.

And as stated before I had strong reasons to believe it was intended (Orichalcum/Glob economy was fcked up since karka update).
Karka update = More supply on Orichalcum cause more ores + More demand on Glob cause ascanded/more legendary hunters
This recipe = More demand on Orichalcum by Jewelcrafers to turn them into Globs. More supply on Globs because they can be transfered from Ori.(Same way t5 mats getting turned into Globs)
Making it a great ballance.
Thereby comes the promise of them to make Legendary and ascanded easyer accesable before xmas patch. Lowering Globs does this pretty good.
It would also explain why the rare recipe makes 75 rares in stead of 80 , I believe they thought it would ballance the recipe preventing people to salvage that recipe in stead of the exotic one. But that is just an theory.
Please tell me it is maniac work to think this and it makes no sense and come with good statements , cause it makes way more sense to me then some fat ass forgetting to change the numer 1 to 3 or 5.

So you're honestly are telling me that out of literally tens of thousands of recipes you happened to pick one that could be exploited on the only 2 days out of 180 days the game has been out and you had to do 200+ runs (Anet state that no one who exploited less then 200 runs was perma banned)  to see the return on ectos? I wanna believe you but there are 2 things that nag at me.
Timing is one of them. Why wait 180 days to run such a research but more then that why pick an expensive recipe when you could have picked any rare recipe of any profession that you could conduct the same research in at a fraction of the price? As for if you could get a higher return using exotics instead of rare whats there even to test? rare cost a fraction of exotic and drop the same ectos at the same rate. The only unknown is if maybe exotics had a bigger drop rate but do you really need 200+ runs to find that out?

I cant judge, cant say thats not really how it went honestly. But you have to agree its sounds suspicious. If I had to guess you heard someone mention there was this exploit that you could get rich from and you tried it out not realizing they were talking of a different recipe but I might be wrong.
It is not that strange that I found the recipe since it was a new recipe so why not check out what the new recipes offer. And I didn't wait 180 days before doing some researches , just never with exotics before. Have done the same thing with rares over a 1000 times. And I know rares are cheaper but with rares u can't find the glob rate is exotics can u? Besides after 10 salvages I kinda found out the loss or profit after 100 salvages wouldn't be that big. And with costy research I refer to the fact I got banned not that I lost 2 G in the proces(wich is nothing).

To come to your wild guess that I saw it on a forum and used the wrong recipe is an big insult. Do you realy think I am that stupid too use the wrong recipe? Then at least come with an more believable version like that i saw on forums that mithril was probaly an exploit cause too high profit so tried orichalcum cause it wouldn't be banable cause low profit... Even though it's not true if ANet or anyone would come with that statement I wouldn't be insulted.

Some1 should have found the recipe without browsing forums to be the first to find it out... So why not me.. there were only a few new recipes... In fact I tried to make my own set for my engi as I stated in my previous posts and saw it was pretty cheap.

I also said in multiple places that the amount of profit one made is irrelevant. If they exploited (successfully or not) then I am sorry but yes the ban was deserved. Fixing a bug like this isnt a 2 minute job. First you need to get the report and that was recieved in the weekend. Then it needs to be reproduced and analyzed. Then the fix needs to be create and tested. 2 days to issue a patch is very efficient I cant say for sure but imho they were working on it during the weekend.

No fixing the bug took them over a week in fact. They just disabled the content on that Monday too patch it a week later. But the ANet staff members that knew and worked on it during the weekend could have atleast made a statement on forums/twitter or anything not to touch new recipes cause there might be something wrong with it and they are currently working on it? But no the decided to read the questions and denie to response to them(in-game and on forums)
And I wasn't talking about that I made no profit means no exploit , I was trying to say that I couldn't have seen it was an exploit and it was fair to have my own conclusion to the recipe(intended) as in your conclusion that 2 % more wage probaly means a bonus.

Lets put it this way, if you work and at the end of the month you receive a slightly larger wage you might think your boss gave you a bonus. If you receive 60x the usual amount it doesn't take mystic powers to realize there definitely has been some mistake right? same here! I am sorry but this how am I suppose to know what is legitimate and what is not is just an excuse to get away with exploiting. The difference is so large its entirely obvious that its not intended.

(2 days after the exploit made it into the game)

Funny how in this post you tell me it was wrong to ban me. Because I wasn't getting even close to 60 X my normal wage. So there is just no way I could have seen anything was wrong. I have to agree that people who used mithril and didn't make proffit should have had enough waking up calls to realize it was bugged. Such as the price of mithril going up by 1000 % and an snowflake costing 30 S + couldn't smell good. But in my case it couldn't.

Besides why people keep saying 2 days in here , oke it was 2 working days but there was an hole freaking weekend inbetween. And in that weekend ANet employeer were online checking it out. Not that hard to fix it from home I think (or at least disable it or make an statement on twitter/facebook any freaking forum about it).
