Skill Tinkering

From Project 1999 Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Tinkering is a gnome-only trade skill. Gnomes start out with a tinkering skill of 50 and a gnome character cannot raise tinker until he reaches level 16. Tinkering can be expensive to raise, but some items such as the collapsible fishing pole, mechanized lockpicks, aqualungs and rebreathers are marketable to other players and can be used to fund a character's later tinkering endeavors.

Cultural Tinkering

Cultural tinkering of Clockwork Watchman (the analog of cultural smithing and tailoring, for gnomes to make a race specific armor set) was implemented during Velious.

See Cultural Tradeskills: Gnome for complete recipe list. Note: Gnome cultural not until Velious.
