This item no longer seems to work

This item no longer seems to work. It did not appear to affect the skill mod in the brewing menu. It's possible that it just doesn't stack with the Brewer's trophy, but it didn't seem to have any effect without it either. I can't really confirm this though since I'm not sure exactly how it's supposed to work. I thought it would work similarly to the brewing trophy but it does not appear so.

It works fine for me, I have 300 base skill and 315 modified skill when equiping the Geerlok Fermentation Device in my Primary slot. Also I can confirm that it does not stack with the Brewmaster's Mug (+15%).
Reason why this is cheaper...

Of all the geerloks, this one has the most common Luclin drop (porous block off of netherbians in Netherbian Lair), so many tinkers make a ton of these to gain skill in tinkering. As such, the market is flooded with them, and they go for an average of 50pp on the Sol Ro server. The tailoring and jewelcrafting ones still hover around 500, but this one is always pretty cheap, as the supply far exceeds the demand. I actually got mine for 15, but 50's about average for this one.

Pottery and baking ones are pretty steadily around 200 on my server; smithing and fletching about 100, and I've just never seen the tinkering ones for sale (most likely because tinkers, the only people who actually need them, just make their own.)

5 percent?

Does this add a 5 percent chance of sucess to an attempt, or does it effectively raise your skill by 5 percent (for example, if you have brewing at 100, does this make it 105 for the purpose of your chance at sucess?)

Either way, I'd definitely want one if I was trying to brew champagne or make my tradeskill trophy. If I was just brewing for skill, I wouldn't bother though.

Either way, will probably try to buy one of these soon!

I heard it increases the success chance by 5%. Hope this helps

Hehe, discovered the answer to my own question:

Basically this (as well as the other geerloks) effectively raises your skill by 5% for the purposes of determining chance of success. The highest you can modify your skill to is 255. In your skills list, it will still show your unmodified skill. So for example, you had 100 brewing and equipped this... your skills list would still show your brewing as being 100, but when you attmepted to make minotaur's hero brew, you'd have the same chance of suceeding as if you had 105 brewing.

Note this only increases your chance of success at a combine; it has no effect on your chance of skilling up (only your wis or int, whichever is higher, does that.)
