Skill Pottery

From Project 1999 Wiki
(Redirected from Pottery)
Jump to: navigation, search

Pottery is produced in two stages. In the first stage you combine the appropriate sketch and a vial of water with clay and other materials on a pottery wheel. You then take the result and combine it with firing sheets in the kiln to make a finished product. Remember, firing sheets go in the kiln and everything else goes on the pottery wheel.

A Guide to Pottery by Etienne

Pottery is a unique trade skill in a number of ways. First of all, pottery seems to be the only trade skill aimed at enhancing another trade skill. Most of the goods you'll manufacture with this skill will only be of interest to bakers. Second of all, it is the only trade skill, to the best of my knowledge, that requires you to make two skill attempts in order to manufacture goods. Third, it’s incredibly easy to raise. Finally, you can make a good profit off this skill just selling goods to vendors though you'll have to have a high skill level before this is possible.

To start with, first verify that everything you need to practice pottery is readily available. That means you'll need to find a pottery wheel, kiln, and vendors to buy sketches, clay, and firing sheets from. When I first started practicing pottery I was using a pottery wheel and kiln in South Qeynos, buying my clay and firing sheets in West Karana, and was getting my sketches from a barbarian shaman who was making frequent trips between Halas and Qeynos. Trust me when I say it was a very frustrating period for me and I eventually just relocated to Halas, where I paid higher prices for raw materials and received lower prices for finished goods, just to have all of my pottery needs met in one small area. You'll eventually also want glass shards and bits of metal for more advanced pottery but you can worry about that when the time comes.

Next you'll want to spend a practice point on pottery just to get it started. Once you start practicing you'll find that pottery raises fairly easily and I certainly wouldn't spend more than 1 practice point on it. Certainly not before trying it a few times just to see what sort of raises you get on your own. Buy the basic pottery book for the instructions and "recipes."

The actual practice of pottery is a two-stage process. First you place a sketch, a flask of water, don't use the globes of water some casters can summon or the pods of water that woodsy types can forage for, the appropriate amount of clay, and any necessary extras like glass shards on a pottery wheel and click combine. If you're successful you'll be rewarded with an unfired product that you can then place in a kiln with the appropriate type of firing sheet(s) and combine to get your end product. When practicing keep working with an item until the pottery wheel returns the message that the item is trivial for someone of your skill level to make but ignore the kiln if it tells you that an item is trivial. It is harder to turn something out on the pottery wheel than it is to put it in the kiln to harden. The kiln will tell you something is trivial to make long before it’s trivial to make on the pottery wheel.

Clay, firing sheets, and some sketches don't stack so when buying trade supplies you may find yourself pressed for space. Because of this I recommend that you don't buy firing sheets until you actually have unfired products ready to put in the kiln. Otherwise you'll probably wind up dragging around excess firing sheets that are filling inventory slots that could be better used carrying clay.

What to make? The first few items in the pottery book, skewers, ceramic linings, and clay jars, are good starts. After those, however, there's a sharp increase in prices. I've never made a pot because I can't find a pot sketch but it also calls for metal bits and a smith friend has told me that they cost around 7 gp to make. Smoker and cookie cutter sketches are expensive as well, running in the 5 to 6 gp range. As you can see, at this point failures become very costly and you may want to jump ahead to more difficult but cheaper items. As of this writing, the recipe for small bowls appears to be broken. At least I get the message that "those items don't appear to combine in those quantities" when I try it. However, the next recipe, pie tins, works just fine and, even better news, actually turns a tidy profit when successful. It costs me slightly under 2 gp to make a pie tin and I can sell it to a merchant for slightly over 5 gp for a profit of 3 gp and mind you I'm dealing with merchants who give me bad prices because they don't like me. Cake rounds are slightly more expensive to make since they require glass shards but they also return a profit. Beyond that, I don't know the profit potential of the larger bowls because I haven't tried them yet and probably won't until pie tins and cake rounds become trivial. I suspect some of them will be quite profitable too, especially mixing bowls which may actually have a player market now that the baker's recipe for clump of dough has been fixed.

Now if you'll excuse me, my cookies are about ready and they're always best straight out of the oven. (I like to bite the heads off the troll shaped ones.)

Pottery Recipes

Note: These recipes and trivials were taken from EQTraders near the end of Velious. Some minor corrections for p1999 may be in order, please make them.

Where two numbers are recorded for trivial levels, the first is for work on the pottery wheel, the second is for firing the result in the kiln. At least for lower-level recipes, and where only skill-ups are desired, it may be more effective to focus exclusively on the pottery wheel. Higher level results may be profitable, so check each recipe before skipping the firing step, or destroying the non-sellable results.

Pottery Leveling Guide

Pottery Wheel in Kelethin.
MediumJarRecipe01.png

Quick reference

Setup

Make sure you have plenty of space, Clay does NOT stack. So there will be a ton of runnning back and forth to/from the Clay merchant.

To get your skill to 122, you will need about 100pp to purchase the following ingredients:

There are many merchants around the world. As a druid i found it best to use South Ro merchants for the Sketches, and Kelethin for the Pottery Wheel and Water/Clay.

The Pottery Wheel is located in the SE corner of Kelethin (at -204, -540 +161) and the Clay merchant Merchant Legweien is (at +410, +371, +78) platform north of POD lift.

Step 1

Make Medium Jars until you hit skill 36

When you do successfully combine into Unfired Medium Container, just drop it on the ground. Merchants will not take it unless you use a Firing Sheet with it, which is very time consuming. Firing Sheets do not stack, so you will find yourself running back and forth way too much, and it is not worth it. It's better to eat the money.

Step 1 (Alternate)

Make Unfired Small Bowls until 102 with:


Step 2

Make Medium Bowls until you hit skill 122

Again, when you do successfully combine into Unfired Medium Bowl, just drop it on the ground.

Step 3

At this point it becomes more troublesome and expensive. You have a few choices.

You can make Unfired Large Bowls - Components: Glass Shard, Large Block of Clay, Large Bowl Sketch, Water Flask until 148
