Does anyone else have the theory that once you get to the last two formulas to level up your percent chances are lowered dramatically?
I just need one more success and I will be level 10.

Insofar as I can tell, the odds of success are equal no matter where you are in a particular level. (I also run the (sadly neglected) crafting odds thread). It just often seems frustrating when you're really close to a particular goal but can't get there. If you, or anyone else were able to collect specific data showing some kind of correlation, I'd be more than happy to revise my theory though.

A minor blessing of the inflation though is that crafting costs are relatively trivial, even on the most expensive attempts.

I could TRY on my mule, since that still needs some leveling. I'm already at level 10 here. Why is it that the Crown of Thrice Great is cheaper than the formula? It does not make sense. I am just going to sell my formula rather than go craft it.

There's lots of stuff in Alchemy which is more expensive to craft than to purchase outright. It's all weird supply and demand stuff. With Level 10 being relatively easy to reach these days, I guess the number of crafted crowns has finally exceeded demand for the crowns. I definitely agree with selling your formula. You could even maybe buy a crafted crown with the proceeds if you want one. rofl

Yes I have a question. I was crafting trying to level up and I got this. Your concoction was a smashing success. It also gave me a rare item? I was trying to figure out how to show you the pic for it but I suck at this sorta thing. It won't show an option to copy the URL for the pic.

Yeah, that can happen, though it's very rare. Here's a thread about it: The Bonus Item Phenomenon
