Tinkering has many items to craft and generally many ways of usage but the best part of the skill is crafting Magic Jewelry. You simply craft normal jewelry and they might come out magic – you will get a message if you’ll make one.You won’t be able to wear them before identifying them (Item Identification).To make magic jewelry you need at least 80% of Magery & Tinkering, gold ingots (at least 50% Blacksmithy is required to smelt gold) and gems. Tinkering for magic jewelry is completely random, you never know what will be created. There are 5 types of jewels:

  • +5% (Lesser)
  • +10% (Good)
  • +15% (Greater)
  • +20% (Glorious)
  • +25% (Godly)

If you have any unwanted jewelry you can’t get rid of, you can try either the Jewelry Vendor or Jewelry Exchange Stone.

Jewelry Vendor 

If you cannot sell a jewel for any reason, there is a NCP Jeweler Vendor (Thunder) who’s buying unlimited amounts of jewels at following prices:

  • +5(~2.000gp)
  • +10(~6.500gp)
  • +15(~13.000gp)
  • +20(~29.000gp)
  • +25(~41.000gp)

These prices may look crappy but for some jewels it’s the only way to make profit at all (some skills are just not used – no demand for jewels) The Jeweler Vendor can be found between Britain and Trinsic.

HOW TO TRAIN

Tinkering is a bit hard to GM because gathering resources takes a while. If you could just buy them all then the skill would be easy to train. I’m leaving the part from 33-70% because it isn’t hard, let’s focus on Poison Traps (70-100%). Following items are needed to complete this part: 5500 empty bottles, 5500 Nightshades, 5500 Ingots of any kind. To make 5500 empty bottles you need 5500 of glass, which can be made from 11000 sand (a Shovel + at least 50% of Mining). To smelt sand you need at least 50% of tinkering, but don’t smelt more than 600 of sand at once, you’ll fail. Making bottles is very slow, 6 seconds for one bottle. When you’re done with bottles you’ll have to make 5500 poison potions of any kind (33% Alchemy is enough for lesser poison pots). The best choice would be to put 55 bags on the floor of your house, 100 pots in every bag. You cannot use kegs! If you have 55 bags with 5500 lesser potions inside, take one bag and 100 Ingots at once to your backpack, use tinker tools and choose 100 poison traps from the menu. Now you have to choose any container placed on floor and keep clicking it extremely fast (around 200 times) to trap and untrap it at once (bag, backpack or anything). You can also ask your friend for an easyuo script for this.
