Well, it says Legacy of "Crafting", so I'd guess no it doesn't affect gathering skills. They will, probably, later introduce "Legacy of Gathering".

This Legacy perk only affects crafting when you are making an item that can be crit-crafted with an augment slot for example weapons and armor.

Crafting of such items as item modifications are not impacted by this perk.

Thank you in advance!

The perk itself (as noted earlier in the thread) does increase the chance of getting an augment slot on items that can have them. For items that can't, it gives you an increased chance for the effect of a critical when crafting those items (like producing an extra item).
Something is wrong with this picture. Come on, which is correct Bioware?

No, they're not kidding you, this is a typical Bioware communication. These people have no idea how to talk to MMO players: a dev post says one thing, a dev blog says something else, the tooltip is extremely vague and even now that they clarified it in another post, we STILL have questions regarding gathering missions.

But posting on the forums how to pronounce ''Columni'', THAT is worth doing right!

No, it's not just three days. This question was asked during testing several times.

That's not what the tooltip says... the tooltip says ''increases the chance of an augmented result while crafting''. Getting 2 items instead of 1 is an augmented result too, no?

Any chance of some clarification on this issue before those that know go off for the weekend?

No, it's not. That's a bonus result, or an extra result. or a critical result where you get an extra. (Sure, I guess if you really want to twist it, the strict english definition of "augmented" is "made larger, enlarged in size, number, strength, or extent". But in the terminology of THIS game, there is only one meaning. And it deals with augment slots. Trying to read any other meaning in is trying to twist it to mean something it obviously doesn't. Just look at the terminology used any time they talk about that bonus copy. They're always very specific about it.)

Ugh. Now we have 2 conflicting reports about how the perk behaves. I guess I'll have to buy it just in case.

The next time anyone asks "hey, why would we hire a technical writer," or "hey, why would we spend money on UI text review," well, you're looking at an example what happens when you don't do either step. Even the folks who work on the product are confused as to how this works, and that happens when you don't have clear docs or UI text.
