This is the way to go from 166 to 222 in one spot.

Enchant velium spell is now 33p 7g each in Thurgadin and PoK.
Coldain Velium Temper is 5p 9g each in Thurgadin from the same guy.

The bits are lore / no trade so you have to destroy them one at a time and the "combine all" does not work. Plan for a lot of clicking.

Skyshrine lower level is awesome for velium. Guild hall has a translocate gem for Cobalt Scar so its not a long commute. Once you kill your way up to the portal pad that ports you down to the room you can see there below you, turn around, there will be next to no velium other than a few weapons beyond that point. Jump off the bridge nearby and start over in the big room far below. Be sure to keep velium weapons as they can be broken down into velium. Clear the nearby lower level maze rooms. There is a forge in one of the bedrooms in a long hallway so stock up on 500 spells and temper and work the skill while you farm the velium. The room across the hall has 3 drakes that are spell vendors. With sneak you can get behind one of them and sell all the vendor loot, they do not agro. Its acually not a bad farm at all and it went by fast.

Banker was blue to me at 100 so avoid that guy. He does not agro unless you attack, and then he will quad you for 10k a hit.

80 attempts at enchanted velium bits got me from 186 to 196.
100 attempts got from 196 to 209.
140 attempts to get from 209 to 222.

Once I actually got a sucessful attempt on this it was added to my rescipes finally althou with it being a lore item you can only make one and either have to use it right away or destroy it. Not sure if anyway around this problem

Able to Add to List

I was able to add to my list once I successfully made my first Set of Bits.

Anyone know why this will not add to favortie recipes? Or know how to force it to add? Real pain the butt having to manually load it 300 times.

On a side note, your stats must not be real high if it is taking you that long to skill up. I just went from 186 to 207 in about 60 tries with 315 wisdom.

Most likely, since it's considered a "quest" recipe, it is unlearnable (and thus you can't add it to your favorites). Send /feedback in-game if you think it should be otherwise.

took 100 attempts to go from 188 skill to 195 skill.
nother 100 to get to 199
nother 100 to get to 202
nother 100 to get to 209
nother 100 to get to 216
nother 100 to get to 222
and yes, my very last combine got 222
tried one more time and got trivial message

I've had horrible luck with this. Took 100 combines to go from 194-195.
Wrong trial

Enchanted Velium Bits are trial at 222, not at 221.

For clarification:

You place two small pieces of velium, Coldain velium temper, and the actual physical spell scroll in the forge.

There is no need to hav an enchanter try to bespell the velium.
hehehe Unsmart question

Do you combine the velium bits, temper and spell in the forge or is it just like any other echant metal, need a chanter to do it?
Skill-restricted combine

This is a skill-restricted combine: Minimum skill to attempt is 165 (including geerlok; 158 + 5% can attempt).

Edit: Oh, and this makes a great smithing skillup route. Quite cheap if you farm your own velium and make your own tempers, and it compares favorably to the new LDoN skillup routes if you need to buy the velium or tempers.

Since the result is no-drop, though, you can't sell them back for any cash.
