Hello and welcome to part one of Tinkering in Everquest II. In this section we are going to cover the basics of Tinkering with in Everquest II.

 

What is Tinkering ??

Well the art of Tinkering is a secondary tradeskill, Tinkerer can craft a large variety of items. Items range from tools that give small bonuses to crafters up to resurrection items and pets. Tinkering recipes are extremely resource intensive; so be prepared to spend a little coin if you don’t not have comfort of a guild supply depot.

 

How do i become a Tinkerer??

To become a Tinkerer you need to already be at least a level 10 tradeskiller in any tradeskill, have the Echoes of Faydwer expansion, and visit a Tinkering Trainer or Master. The trainers can be found on the docks in Butcherblock Mountains, Gnomeland Security in the Steamfont Mountains, or in the treetop city of Kelethin.

 

How do i level as a Tinkerer??

Well you do not level like you normally would in the other tradeskills!!  In Tinkering, you will scribe specific “Blueprints” and then create items that are associated with the blueprints, each time you finish a item you have a chance to gain 1 skill point level, just like when you are harvesting. So basically just like harvesting you are gaining skill points in order to level.  The Blueprints are found all over Norrath either by questing or as a random loot drop off mobs, loot drop or quested blueprint is a recipe to construct an uncommon tinkered item (Mastercrafted / upgrade Items) and may require more than 1 rare material item to complete when tinkering. Also the Blueprints can be found with in the docks in Butcherblock Mountains, Gnomeland Security in the Steamfont Mountains, or in the treetop city of Kelethin. However the Tinkering trainer is Gnomeland Security  has all the blueprints you will need to begin your journey as a Tinkerer.

 

In my next installment of Tinkering we will be talking about the different Blueprints, also if i feel energetic i may even provide a list of all the blueprints that are obtainable with information on what they will make.

I am currently working my way thru the tinkering sub-class to and will be providing first hand experience on this wonder addition to Everquest II.

Until next time Happy Tinkering in Norrath!!!
