Trade skill paths

by on Nov.08, 2004, under Tradeskill

These are the quick and easy skill ups for different trade skills. Note that skill ups are fastest when within 20 points of the trivial, bourne out by several tradeskillers, but this can be overridden by price or convenience of a higher trivial item.

First: you can take all tradeskills to 54 for free by the Abysmal Sea vendor quests. Do this.

Fetid Essence (122): flask water, fishing grubs (no bottle/cask!)
The best place for this is PoK – brew barrel and water in the merchant centre by the bank; grubs from a nearby vendor south of the library
Skull Ale (151): cyclops skull, vinegar, short beer, spices
Faydwer Shaker (188): mead, elven wine, gnomish spirits, dwarven ale, cask

You can train to 21 first if you wish

Beer braised meat (68) meat, short beer, spices
Filet of bear/wolf (143) meat, fileting knife (smithing triv 76, 3 metal bits, scaler mold, water)
Shadowhaven, meat sold from a couple of vendors
Patty Melt (191): (wolf/bear/lion) meat, loaf of bread, cheese, non-stick frying pan (mold sold only in Jaggedpine/Abysmal, recipe is mold, bits, water, ceramic lining)
Meat in Shadowhaven or Thurgadin, Mordin’s Meats – he also sells bread. Cheese from gnolls/rangers in Jaggedpine; or from adjacent vendors in Abysmal.

Train to 21 first; these skillups are slow
Medium jar (36): block of clay, medium jar sketch, water flask
Medium bowl (122): block of clay, medium bowl sketch, water flask
Poison vial (148): small block clay, vial sketch, water flask, skin (not ruined, zombie skins included – or Crow’s Special Brew, if that still works) or

Quiver (115): HQ cat pelt, pattern
Owlbear Tunic (135): 2 owlbear pelts, 2 shadeling threads (Vah Shir tailoring quest only); plain owlbear pelts are too rare, so skip this
