My question being:
When is the quality of an item determined? Is it when you first start crafting the item or is it using your Mastery points when you claim the item?
Why is this important? I have 2000+ Mastery while using Jack of all Trades. I want to try firing all workers besides Jack to see if I can level him up faster while producing Ocarinas. If the quality of the item is determined at time of crafting, then this poses no risk (just a few Million gold that I can certainly afford to rehire with). However, if the Ocarinas' quality is determined at time of "clicking" or "popping" the craft, then I'm losing more than just a few Million here and there. I'm also losing potential Net Worth for a chance to increase infrastructure.
Anyone know the answer to this?
