Why would you bother? Just buy some gate potions. Or if your a SK.. get your gate hammer.

was cheaper to skill up in pottery and make these then buy a 10 dose gate potion

In addition to the cost, which was already mentioned, it can be nice to have quick travel options to more than one place if you carry both. Thurgadin might be closer to where you need to go than your bind point, and gates to a fixed location can be nice if you're bound in a strange place.

Imagine you're bound in Western Wastes for a ToV raid. A Thurgadin gate potion would sound more appealing than gating right outside of your current zone.
RE: why
# May 14 2004 at 6:24 PM Rating: Good
Because these cost less than a plat to make, and gate potions still go for about 150pp per charge.

This potion has had its effect changed. You NOW have to be level FIFTY to get the gate to function. I would STRONGLY suggest we start a barage of feedback to SoE to change it back to what it used to be.

I think you are confusing this with the Hammer which does require level 51 to proc gate to The Overthere.

I made one with my 26 Rogue and tested it. It worked fine. You need indifferent or better faction to get the purifier though. I snuck behind and asked 'what vial of velium vapors'. She gave me the purifier before she realized I was apprehensive!

On the issue of Stackability: No they are not stackable, however, with the new "Shared" bank slot, it is possible to have two at a time.

You get one, put it in a bag or in one of those shared bank slots. Go get another ... No problems.
The only hitch to this new bank slot is you cannot place Lore BAGS into it; ie: Rallic Pack.

I hope this helps some of you!

Well if you're not on FV you can't have 2 at a time. You CAN, however, have more than 1 empty velium vial at once, as those are NOT lore. So, make a few of them in advance and keep them along with a stack of the small pieces of velium in the bank. Every time you use one, it brings you right to Thurgadin anyway, so while you're there, run to frundle, get a purifier, combine one of your conveniently pre-made vials with a couple pieces of velium, and you have another gate potion in less than five minutes. Easy peasy.

As said above, in case folks missed it, aye you cannot put a no drop item, such as this in the shared bank sadly, good idea though ;-)

Since they're LORE, you may not possess more than one at a time, so stackability is a moot point. Smiley: wink

Elisha DirtyShoes is the vendor. She is in the building behind the bank in POK go up the stairs and enter the first door on the right. I bought the shards for about 1sp per shard. Hope that helps you
Faction level
# Feb 13 2003 at 10:33 AM Rating: Decent
Faction level listed below as "amiable" is incorrect. I started as dubious, wasn't given vial by dwarf lady. Got myself to indifferent last night, she gave me vial and I combined ingredients to make my first Vial of Velium Vapors. :)
RE: Faction level
# Apr 04 2003 at 1:06 AM Rating: Decent
you don't need to chat to her, so forget about faction here. all you need to do is walk right up to her and ->say<- : "what velium vapors?", after that she says something about her family recipe, and at that point u already have been given a little container which you can put in your velium vial and the 2 pieces of velium in, and then store in the bank. as said earlier, this is also the trick i do, if i don't have time to make another and must be on the run. i haven't failed making this vial ONE single time at pottery 122 (perhaps luck), and i every second time im out of ingredients, i go to the bazaar instead of hunting materials myself. good thing to do, is to ask in ooc if u can buy the needed materials for the potion, in that zone u hunt ur materials.

What skill levels, if any, do you require for this part of the quest?
Pottery? (What level?)
Smithing (What level?)
Alchemy? (What level?)

Im just not sure didnt want to waste my time trying to make it if i need any of those skills
RE: Skills required for the item
# Nov 09 2002 at 3:22 AM Rating: Good
Aloha dear

Speant about an hour one day while waiting for a rez in a nasty guild TPW and took my pottery to 125 so I could do these potions. Took me about 100pp to do it using the store bought stuff in Thurgadin to do it. With a skil of 125 I succeed 95% of the time, so that is pretty close to the trivial level on that item.

There is no alchemy or smithing skill required. Simply follow the recipe listed above. You can get the silks & velium bricks & Velium pieces from either CC or Velks Lab.

Happy pottery making :-)
RE: Skills required for the item
# Jul 13 2003 at 4:29 PM Rating: Decent
No smithing is needed if you are just going to hunt for the certain pieces needed, but atleast 30-35 smithing is needed. Just take the block of velium you get in CC with a smithing chisel and combine in a forge to receive a large brick of velium, do it again and you get a small brick of velium, and one more time you get 2 small pieces of velium.
usable by all

I was going through my bags while medding, and noticed that my Vial of Velium Vapors had been altered: "(Recommended level of 60)".

Has this had any effect on the use or creation of this handy item?

You can make a vial from *any* bank.
1.Make unfired velium vial.
2.Get machine and put it in bank(put inside the vial and 2 pieces of velium)
3.Combine when you need from any bank.

You won't need a pottery wheel and is good if you are on the run after you had to use the vial to gate.

Also highest stat is what is used on learning a tradeskill, be it INT, WIS, STR, or any others... get a buff(usually str or KEI) to get as high as you can.

Crystalline silk can be obtained off of spiders in Crystal Caverns, and off of the spiders in Thurgadin. There may be other places you can get them, but these are easy spots.

The vial is not trivial at 119 skill in pottery, but I've made it many times without failure at that skill.

The gate is not instant cast and takes a few seconds. But the vial does not vanish immediately during the cast, so I'd expect that if the cast were interrupted the vial would still be in your inventory.

This is very easy to get once you have the pottery skill (you can master pottery in a couple hours at not too much cost). My monk carries this around all the time now, and keeps several unfired vials in the bank so that he can make another one immediately upon using one.

It gates you to a relatively safe point in Thurgadin, so even if you are KOS there, your gate is fine. However, if you are KOS there, it's hard to make this item, as you need a container from an NPC in Thurgadin to make the final combine.
where can i find crystalline silks?

My question is the subject object, where i can find crystalline silks?
# Mar 19 2001 at 11:23 PM Rating: Default
The real question is, IS THIS INSTANT CAST?

If so it is probably easier to get than a leatherfoot raider cap or lizard blood potion.

I asked someone and its a standard gate potion cast from what I gather and can be interrupted.

Couple seconds I think about like casting "gate."

what skill is needed and what lvl is good to attempt this?
Got 103 small bowls, never failed.
# Mar 20 2001 at 6:08 AM Rating: Decent

Its trivial at like 122 or more.. but I got 103 skill on bowls and never failed on 2 or so.

Really its not worth getting higher than that when you can pretty much stock up on the components and make several of the unfired or fired ones at once (they are not lore when unfired or fired) and put them in the bank.

Later, after using the potion you can get the quest thing again from frundle and 2 of your small veliium pieces from the bank and make another one.

So I'd save the time you'd spend getting above 103 and use it instead to get more of the small bricks, small pieces of velium and crystilline silks from crystal caverns to make them instead.
RE: skill level?
# Mar 19 2001 at 8:49 PM Rating: Default
I have made 2 of these so far, 1 for the quest and one streight after to test if it was usable (before anyone had confirmed). I have a potery skill of 131 and it was trivial to me.

The gate itself dropes you right in the middle of the first (big) bridge inside Thurgadin, incase you were wondering :)

Oh and potery is cheap and quick to get to this level BTW so all you Velious enabled tanks that are tired of waiting on us Druids or Wizzards for ports, get working on your potery :)

Have fun folks and safe hunting
RE: skill level?
# Mar 19 2001 at 10:11 PM Rating: Decent
I heard it wasn't trivial at about skill level 120, so somewhere between those two points (120 and 131) is where it starts going triv.

Hm.. think someone KoS could use this potion and not die? I've got a circlet of shadows to use so it does give me a minor advantage over non SKs that use this potion.
Yeah, might use and not die

It tps you to the bridge.. not EXACTLY sure where but if towards the zone to great divide there is really no dwarf there.. might be one wandering one.

It might be closer to the 2 guards though.
RE: skill level? Higher then 121

I made mine - it was NOT trivial at 121, but I was successful.

RE: skill level? Higher then 121
# Jun 23 2002 at 8:22 PM Rating: Decent
MY pottery is at 124

The combine of the silks, velium, and glass shards was trivial.

The combine of the vial and velium pieces was NOT trivial.

Hope this helps ;)
RE: skill level? Higher then 121

RE: skill level?
# Mar 19 2001 at 7:48 PM Rating: Default
I did it at 102 skill (in pottery) and gained a point to 103. You need to make 2 pottery skill checks, the first to combine the things on the pottery wheel (which seems to be hard) and the second to fire the unfinished vial in a kiln which was trivial at 103. There doesn't seem to be any skill check when combining the vial and the two pieces on velium in the purifier that you got from Frundle Frenkler (see quest info at
