As per the title I'm just wondering if I should
a) do any jewellery crafting surveys before update 40?
b) if yes should I refine my platinum dust before update 40 or wait until after?
c) if yes should I refine resulting grains before or after update 40?
I get the basics behind the update - what the system will be and what will happen to what you already have in your inventory/craft bag, I'm just unsure what would be the best thing to do to have as many possible upgrade plating's after the update.
If every jewellery grain will become a plating after the update, then it seems like it would make sense to acquire as many as possible via surveys/harvesting & then refinement of platinum dust, before the update?
