Mistletoe Cutting Sickle trivial change coming

Postby Jhereg » Wed Aug 08, 2007 10:01 am

They are lowering it from 335 to 255 roughly from what I've read. Anyone wanting to skill up smithing with this route should try to get their combines done fairly soon. The only reason they have left it in this long apparently was the alternative smithing skill up's were too slow.

They are planning to add in something new when they reduce the trivial, but who knows how good that will be to skill up with. Maybe easier? But I had the impression they hate skillups to 300 based on vendor stuff only.

Here's the link:

Thanks for the heads up, Jhereg.

I've been expecting (dreading) this for a while.
It's really too bad. Those sickles, albeit costly, were the best option at that level. But as you said, who's to say there won't be a better way implemented?

I have the impression that Gem Studded Chain's which skill jewelry up to 300 will also change. The developer didn't say specifically but he restated that all vendor skill ups to 300 will be changed so that there's no way to do that anymore.

They'll probably do this just before raising the skill cap just so it'll drive me even more insane... if that's possible.

Is there any convenient "How To" guide for the sickles? Other than looking up the recipies individually on eqtraders.

It occurs to me that this would be a good time to get them done, and bulk up the personal tribute numbers as well.

What I've been doing is having 2 alts help me.
I have one alt create celestial essence in PoK using The Scent of Marr(from poison vendor) and Concentrated Celestial Solvent. He puts that in the shared bank. You need double the total amount of combines your doing(half goes to mistletoe temper, half to sub pieces of the final combine).

I have one alt who makes Mistletoe temper in Crescent reach (142 trivial?) by combining Mistletoe, Elven Wine and Celestial essence then puts it in the shared bank.

The main other components are the Tunare dust, that's from getting Emeralds imbued by a tunare cleric(I usually do 5-7 stacks at a time) and combining it with acid.

And Sheet Metal which is easy enough to make.

To make one of the subcombines you basically need: 1 Dust, 1 Sheet Metal, 1 mold(differs for which your doing), 1 Celestial essence, 1 Mistletoe temper and a smithing hammer.
