shrink update

Tested today, Orge SK now shrinks about the same size a human, slightly higher but a fair bit higher than a dwarf.

Also confirmed the following worked to recharge this device
*Gnomish recharging kit(bought from Tabben Bromal - Tinkering Supplies 2pp approx)
*mana battery 6 (bought from Nelin Signus - Tinkering supplies 104pp approx)
both in POK just use Find to locate them

Place "Anizok's Minimizing Device" and "Mana Battery class six" into "Gnomish recharging kit" and hit combine. It should end up with 20 charges again. you can recharge it at any state, so if it has 12 charges you can recharge back to 20 without waiting for it to get to 0.
If you charge a 0 it works out pretty cheap at approx 5pp per usage

Oh also did combine with Orge SK no tinkering skill

As of the last patch, the A$$ drips from the dev department nerfed this. It will not shrink you all the way down like before... 3x shrink or equal to Sham shrink ..etc. You know what I mean. It will only bring you down 2x. Example .. Ogre will shrink down to dwarf size now. This is my experience as of late. I am assuming that all races have same result as my Ogre. Well .. txs as always SOE. I stopped reporting/ petitioning >> long << whilez ago Smiley: dubious

I had to create a gnome to do the combine for the recharge on the Minimizing device. I guess humans can no longer do the combine for the recharge.

Well either something is broken or they changed it, I can no longer recharge my shrinker. The "combine" button is greyed out. Same for my other toons and my friends who have a minimizing device and a toolbox.

YOu have to talk to Caerlyna in the Bazaar. This is the Barbarian Bag-to-Token vendor. Just give her your old toolbox and she'll give you back a Collapsed Gnomish Recharging Kit in it's place.

Do you even read the notes when after you download from a patch? It said there is now a "Gnowish recharge device" that is to be used instead of toolboxes

Tabben Bromal in Plane of Knowledge sells the new recharging devices. He's upstairs in the smithing building.

Hate to say it, but on Stromm, 10 dose ant's potions are going for 1000pp in bazaar. So in this case, the minimizing device is still a good deal!
Ant potions are far cheaper, easier to get

Um, ant potions are only about 5 plat each, and you can put 20 in a stack. They are also potion belt enabled, meaning you don't have to go rooting around in your inventory to use them (helpful in stress situations).

The savings in money, weight (no toolbox needed), time (no need to search for mana batteries, etc), and even inventory space (with the potions) make the minimizing device look positively...inefficient.

And yes, as a gnome, I realize I'm shooting myself in the foot a bit by posting this. What can I say? Some of our inventions need improvement - but we're working on it.

Hehe...Just wondering about what you said there. When have you ever needed an emergency shrink during stressful situations? :-p
It works =)

combine in Deluxe toolbox ... bought from Nelin Signus in Northern POK (you cant find him using the find utility but he is on the map)

items to combine:
1 mana battery class six
1 anizok's minimizing device (that needs charges)
should say:

You have learned the recipe anizok's minimizing device (Recharge)!
You have fashioned the items together to create something new!

With the patch today (3/10/2004) it states:
Quote:
If you are not a gnome, you should no longer be able to tinker with a deluxe toolkit kit.

I wonder if this stops us from recharging?

Can someone confirm this can be charged by non-gnomes please? I dont fancy paying 1k+ for something I am only going to use 20 times. Thanks in advance!

I can indeed confirm this. I just recharged my Gnomish Vanishing device a sec ago as a human monk.

Enjoy

I recharged this with a mana battery class one yesterday. Must have changed. Makes this item even better. I am warrior and have much better bracers than cobalt, so I ditched the cobalt and made enough pp to work on tradeskills....

Woot, brewing 200!

it's rather sad
i can buy this for about 500 pp and batteries for 104 a pop
i can buy a cobalt bracer for 8900 (and that's the cheapest i've ever seen it - usually about 12k)
it would take a long time for this to surpass the bracer in price
eq market at it's worst =P

Requires a toolbox (8 or 10 slot), Mana Battery - Class Six (storebought or looted). To recharge, put the two items in the toolbox and click combine. Requires no skill and does not require that you be a gnome.

Sold by Maryalis N'Ryt at neg 850 pos 200 in PoK (evil/south side of PoK, easternmost building between the Neriak and Ogguk portal stones, inside through the door on the left).

Price was 106pp with 100 CHA. This means that the per-use cost is only ~5pp vs ~15pp for a shrink potion. I paid 700pp for my device, which means that after only 70 uses, I'll have paid it off.

(As mentioned in this thread: http://everquest.allakhazam.com/db/item.html?item=16414&mid=104361072612178)

All tinkered items can be recharged in this manner (different items require different batteries).

To recharge: combine Anizok's Minimizing Device with a Mana Battery - Class Six, in a toolbox. (No skill required.)
RE: So...
# Dec 19 2002 at 9:14 PM Rating: Decent
Do you still need to be a gnome? Or can anybody (i.e. half-elf bard, ogre warrior, etc) do the recharge?

No gnome required to recharge. I'm a High Elf Paladin and I've recharged mine several times. It never fails, but I do get the message I can no longer advance my skill by doing that combine. :wink: :rolleyes:
steel casing / cured leather tubing

Where can I get the Steel Casing to make the Base Prototype, and the Cured Leather Tubing to make the Perpetual Steam Pump? This site only says they are bought from vendors, but not which/where.

Also, how long on average does it take to get a Drop of Grease from a Rogue Clockwork? I managed to find one on a vendor in Steamfront, but none of the Clockworks I killed ever dropped one.

Steel casings sold by a gnome merchant inside the Plane of Innovation for sure.. Not sure if any place else. Once in PoI you head right and he's in the mill around a cpl of corners.. Of course all the stuff in the way see thru invis and is over level 50 most of it..

Very handy for the classes that can't use items like cobalt bracer, etc... guessing it's probably rechargable?

It's my Understanding that MOST of not all Tinkered Items are Rechargable now
