Be a Master Potter for Less Than 24p, 9g, 9s, 9cp!
Okay, okay, I'm not really Sally Fields. I just couldn't resist. Pottery
has got to be the easiest, cheapest trade to Master. I did so because
because I'm a tradeskill junkie. But also because I didn't Smith for the
longest time and I needed utensils for my Baking habit. And as an
enchanter, I also use Poison Vials as a spell component.
wait! There's more! You can also study these trades at your
own pace and from the comfort of your own home:
|| Poison Making
Here's what you do: go buy a couple stacks of Flasks of Water, Medium
Bowl Sketches, and as many Blocks of Clay as you have room left for. Go
find the pottery wheel. Put one each of the things I just told you to go
buy in the Pottery Wheel. Lather, rinse, repeat. This'll get you to skill
122, eventually. When you actually succeed in making an Unfired Medium
Bowl, destroy it. It's not worth it to try firing the things.
Yeah, that's it. Oh, what, you want to know where to do this?
What, do I have to do everything for you? Okay, okay, here are the best
places to do it: Highpass Hold, Kelethin, North Freeport and Thurgadin.
Those are the zones where the clay, water, sketches and the pottery wheel
are all in the same zone. In Highpass, you have to run back and forth
between several shops, in Kelethin you're running across the entire city
on those platforms that it's death to fall off of (if you have less than
500 HP or so, anyway), and in North Freeport you're shuttling back and
forth from Groflah's Forge to right around the bank. I've yet to visit
Thurgadin, but I know you can get all the stuff you need in one zone. If
you need more specific information, go to the same source I do:
EQ Traders Corner. Please read
the webmistress' rules and the wealth of information there before posting
on her board or contacting one of the folk there for help. (I am in no way
associated with EQ Traders Corner, but I have a towering respect for the
amount of hard work that went into building the store of information
Why would anyone want to master something so screamingly easy? Well, like
I said, I did it to make myself Baking utensils and Poison Vials (though
you can buy the vials from a few merchants strung out across the face of
Norrath), there's stat-enhancing clay deities for healer-types, and
there's a quest in Thurgadin to make a lore, no drop potion-type item that
will gate you to Thurgadin.
Go get dirty! Throw that clay!
