Fine Steel Weps

Postby Skel » Wed Oct 20, 2004 8:50 pm

Okay --- for those who didn't know, Skel's trying like hell to get tailoring and smithing up to the 200 level. Tailoring i can handle (spiders are cake) but for smithing it looks like the cheapest/easiest route is Ornate Chain. Sellback means i lose about 1pp per combine but i need LOTS of High Quality Metal Rings.

Normally, these are made with HQ ore which is expensive to buy. Even if you farm the raw ore to convert it takes several pieces and a lot of luck to make a dent in the mass or ore i'll need to get 130-190. SO i found out that the ore can ALSO come from metling down Fine Steel weapons. Large weapons give 2 ore pieces, small weapons give 1 ore piece. So far i've managed a lot of success using these to level up but i need LOTS of fine steel. I've been trying to find an ideal spot to farm. Have tried Kaesora, Splitpaw, and a dozen other zones. Rathe isn't too bad but i would appreciate that if anyone lands some Fine Steel and DOESN'T need/want it that i could have/buy it. Vendors sell Fine Steel at 50+ pp which is absurd ...

All i need for tailoring is mass quantities of Viscous Mana (chanter combine).

So to recap: SKEL NEEDS FINE STEEL WEAPONS!!!

I took my BL down to LGuk for some fun ... loads of FS weapons down there ... Sol B might be good, too.

SOL A is MUCH better for FS. The cons ae lower and they drops lots of both HQ ore and FS weapons.

I used to camp the IGs in Everfrost for fine steel and pp. Wonder how that would compare to what you've tried.

Mistmoore & Sol A are both good for that. I bit the bullet and just bought the bricks though. You get back a pretty good percentage when you sell the finished product back to the vendor.

Okay i never even considered Mistmoore. Anything i can AE is perfect. Ice Giants do drop thingies, but there's only 3 outside of Permafrost and the Perma ones are too mean for me to farm heavily.

Thx for all the suggestions, gonna log skelly on tonite and check a few of those areas. Looking forward to laying waste to Mistmoore ... i owe those bastards one.

Oh ... and i DID finally finish the Beguile Plant spell quest and it's the suckiest thing know to druids ... but DAMN it was fun AE nuking the ENTIRE Sarnak fort and snaking a few Chokidai Prods while i was at it.

holy shit I wish I knew you needed FS back when I was doing factioning in MM. I wasn't even looting bodies....musta been hundreds upon hundreds of weapons rotting....

Plus I was bored out of my fucking skull. If anyone needs Ring of Scale faction GO WITH SKEL! It really stinks solo unless you are ridiculously drunk or high or both or more.

Yup sure was loads of fun yesterday ... had the whole damn zone to myself. Slaughtered everything in groups of 10+ up to the mid-depth castle (then i had to med and start over). Guess RoS faction is good but i hate the thought of porting my ass to Skyfire just to check it out.

*sigh*

Too much fun smithing.

Yup.

If you never went to VP, your faction won't be far off from max. I went from max kos to max ally in about a month or so of off and on farming.

I never bothered checking it till i saw it was maxed.

FS weapons?

Postby Tethtau » Wed Dec 15, 2004 10:11 am

Has it been so long we forgot one of the biggest FS weapon zones, Unrest? I take teth in and slaughter the zone. The mobs have crap for HP and drop FS like crazy. Not to mention it is one of the least used zones now. Also for smithing if you have indifferent faction to the Vahl do the smithing quest there. by the time you are done you should have 248 in Smithing and the quest is dirt cheap if you farm the materials, Hollowshade drops/Shadeweaver drops.
