Talk:Skill Blacksmithing

From Project 1999 Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search



I have my doubts that Lockpicks is possible to be crafted with blacksmithing. I removed Lockpicks from the article.

my reasoning is the only merchant i can find information on that is suppose to sell the lock pick molds is not in east freeport on p99.

Different Trivials

On another note.. i'm not sure the value of having the classic vs p99 trivials together on the smithing article. Might be confusing for some people as it doesn't pertain to the game and could be misleading if somebody was just scanning the article quickly.

Once I finish more research I'll get to the bottom of the trivials with Nilbog. I assume they should changed to the classic values. When that happens (or not) I'll remove the column that is incorrect. --Ravhin 02:06, 20 February 2012 (UTC)

... 20150603 Based on the current Everquest progression servers (original everquest content and zones) the smithy trivials listed here are WAY off. Some of the recipes are incorrect too (e.g. sewing kit, those components create the SMALL sewing kit that is triv at 52 [vs "135"] and the Pot is triv @ 50 [vs your 'p99' and 'clasic' "122 value"]; bread tin 38 vs "38/135").

Suggested Order For Skilling up on Banded Armor

I would suggest making Banded Gorgets first

then moving on to Banded Bracers

then Banded Gauntlets until you hit 102 skill.

then Banded Helms until you hit 106.

My reason for suggesting this is these molds are significantly cheaper (around 3~6 gp each) than the other recipes. however once you hit 106 it wont matter after that for skill ups all the molds are 1 platinum or more.

Cultural Smithing Research

Need timeline.

"Cultural (ie Enchanted Full Plate) was in before Deity Cultural (ie Imbued)"?

"On live cultural recipes were added patch by patch over the course of Kunark and Velious."

"I can say with utmost certainty that the first cultural items were added in September, 2000."

  • Cabilis Scale Mail
  • Enchanted Cabilis Scale Mail (imbued)
  • Dwarven Plate
  • Elven Chainmail
  • Enchanted Elven Chainmail
  • Field Plate
  • Full Plate
  • Enchanted Full Plate
  • Mithril Plate
  • Northman Kite Shield
  • Northman Ringmail
  • Ogre War Splintmail
  • Ogre War Plate
  • Seafarers Ring Mail
  • Tier'Dal Chainmail
  • Enchanted Tier'Dal Chainmail
  • Tier'Dal Adamantite (Plate)

These are the first types of cultural armor introduced into the game. The recipes and their components are simple by cultural smithing standards.

These are specifically mentioned in the September 2000 patch.

This leaves off Trolls (their cultural stuff is weird). Gnomes (tinkering) and tailoring races are discussed on their respective pages.

Ornate Chain Armor

I've been meaning to test this out and will in a few days.. just been working on getting my jewelry making up a bit.

I've heard from others in game that the order of skilling up for blacksmithing is something like banded > ornate chain > fine plate > culture armor

I will test out to see if you can make ornate chain armor soon. (it would help a lot if that was available as its a big jump from banded to fine plate.)

Jado818 02:24, 20 February 2012 (UTC)

Attempted to make this today.

All the components are in game. even the patterns.

however the High Quality Metal Rings combine will not complete.

I created a bug thread here for discussion as there isn't a tradeskill section on the forums.

Jado818 22:12, 21 February 2012 (UTC)

I made some ornate chain the other day and noticed the trivials noted on the wiki were not at all correct. Every Ornate chain piece aside from the mail and the cloak were trivial at 175 skill level.

Dwarven Cultural Armor.

I've confirmed as much as i can of the dwarven cultural armor today.

I can't do much more until ornate chain armor is added with next patch so i can skill up.. or they add the Dwarven Smithy Hammer to P99.. with out the hammer you can't make any of the armors.

I did create a bug thread for the hammer.. its on the dwarven smithy hammer talk page.

Does strength affect smithing success rate?

I was positive that strength affected either the success rate in smithing, but I can't find a reference to it anywhere on the wiki. Is it true on P99?
