Re: Trade skills

Well, my in-laws were visiting this week which meant I had a lot of down time for EQ, but couldn't dive into anything too involved. So, tradeskills it was, and with a vengeance. I spent a fair amout of time shopping the bazaar and have some nice stockpiles of supplies in excess of what I already hav...

Re: I'm home!!!!

Tatnakawd's post is a great summary of where to start. At lvl 66 I hunted in The Steppes, and I blabbed on and on about it on the forum here under Quest, strategies and more and then under a post labeled steppes. As you get back in the groove feel free to post questions, you may have to be patient t...

Armor upgrade at lvl 80

I am lvl 77 and will probably zip up to 80 soon. Gear-wise I haven't done a lot of research in this range, earlier I thought Glowing Reis was the answer but now I'm not so sure. On problem I see for this range is that the drops were steadily replaced. Purchasable gear for lvl 98-100 seems to be abun...

Re: Technique: Merc Swarming

Thanks to Tatankawd for pointing out to me how lucrative this actually is. :) This post was for you, I never could have described this all with tells!

Others out there, share your thoughts, particularly if you have or will try it and figure out more tricks.

Merc Swarming

I haven't seen this technique before and developed what is described below. I will refer to it as merc swarming. Key points: -pull a swarm of multiple weak (old-zone) cons, preferably light blue -use merc tank, must have high level MGB mage DS at minimum -reduce getting attacked by using vineleash a...

Re: Shawl Quest(s)

So, I started this in ernest this weekend when I had a few hours to kill. To put this in context, I am level 77 with over 900 AA's, so killing is never the issue, just finding the drops. The first two quest items, frost giant toes and kromriff heads were relatively easy. Ring to Great Divide, hit th...

Re: Trade skills

So, the tradeskills I wanted trophies in (for shawl quest) are brewing, bakery, fletching, jewelcraft, pottery, smithing and tailoring. I finally got all seven trophies this weekend. Jewelcraft, pottery and fletching were the last three I got, all three used 100% of items you could vendor buy, so th...

Re: Trade skills

So, I have been wanting to get my seven trophies. So far I have brewing, baking, tailoring and smithing. I would like to add that most of them are tedious but managable with the exception of the tailoring one. You are required to make something that uses a raw-hide gorget, which is a drop that no on...

Trade skills

I have been tinkering more and more with tradeskills, with the long term goal of doing the Shawl quests (in another post). However, instead of just yapping on about tradeskills under the shawl quest I thought it would be more appropriate to post here. Discussions I would like to spur on: -useful tra...

Re: I'm home!!!!

Welcome! I was a recent returner myself, but with a little patience I was brought back up to speed. Fire away with questions if you have them; I suspect a few of us might be able to answer returning player's questions. What server are you on? Tat and I are on Tunare, not sure about some others. A lo...
