Event Coordinator Baublie Diggs may be found in the newbie area at +600, +135.

You say, 'Hail, Event Coordinator Baublie Diggs'

Event Coordinator Baublie Diggs says 'Are you interested in taking a [test] of your Tradeskill Ability?'

You say, 'What test?'

Event Coordinator Baublie Diggs says 'I can give you a test of your tradeskill abilities in any of eleven different tradeskills. I can test you on [alchemy], [baking], [brewing], [fletching], [jewelry] making, [poison] making, [pottery], [smithing], spell [research], [tailoring], or [tinkering].'

You say, 'Research.'

She will assign you a task dependent on your skill. The levels appear to be Beginner (50-99), Apprentice (100-149), Freshman (150-199), Journeyman (200-249), Expert (250-299), Master (300).

You have been assigned the task 'Freshman Researcher Test'.

Event Coordinator Baublie Diggs says 'Ok take this list, make the recipes on it, and give them to the Judge for Approval. Be sure to read all of the rules.'

Create 4 Quill of the Arcane using tradeskills
Create 16 Celestial Cleanser using tradeskills
Create 20 Vials of Pure Water using tradeskills
Create 3 Aqua Fortis using tradeskills
Create 3 Aqua Regia using tradeskills
Create 1 Aqua Regia using tradeskills
Create 1 Fine Runic Papyrus Solution using tradeskills
Create 1 Parchment Solution using tradeskills
Create 1 Parchment Solution using tradeskills
Create 1 Highland Sludge Drying Powder using tradeskills
Deliver 4 Quill of the Arcane to Judge Marion Teld`mare
Deliver 4 Celestial Cleanser to Judge Marion Teld`mare
Deliver 4 Vials of Pure Water to Judge Marion Teld`mare
Deliver 3 Aqua Fortis to Judge Marion Teld`mare
Deliver 3 Aqua Regia to Judge Marion Teld`mare
Deliver 1 Aqua Regia to Judge Marion Teld`mare
Deliver 1 Fine Runic Papyrus Solution to Judge Marion Teld`mare
Deliver 1 Parchment Solution to Judge Marion Teld`mare
Deliver 1 Parchment Solution to Judge Marion Teld`mare
Deliver 1 Highland Sludge Drying Powder to Judge Marion Teld`mare

Yes, there are duplicates in the list.

Rules:
Make all of the items on this list.
You may make them in any order you wish.
You may have friends help you with any part but the last step which creates the actual part on the list. This you must do yourself.
You may make the items in any order and turn them in to the Judge in any order that you wish.
The Judge will keep all items that she is given to defray the costs of the contest.
The Judge's decision is final.
If you already have an old Trophy that you have made, show it to the Coordinator and she will mark it as already completed. You will still have to submit the old trophy to the judge.

Upon handing the last one into Judge Marion Teld`mare you get:

Congratulations. You have passed the test. Please give this scorecard to the coordinator. Be sure to have two places available in your inventory because she will give you either one or two items as your prize.

You have been given: Freshman Researcher Scorecard

Give the scorecard to Baublie.

Event Coordinator Baublie Diggs says 'Congratulations! That was great work. This trophy is brand new and has yet to evolve. First take your trophy in either your left or right hand then take the certificate that I am also giving you and put it in the appropriate tradeskill container and your trophy will evolve to the proper level for the test you have taken.'

You receive the Beginner Researcher Trophy and a Freshman Researcher Certificate. Equip the trophy in your PRIMARY slot, then combine the certificate by itself in your class-specific research container and your trophy will evolve to a Freshman Researcher Trophy.

The trophies are evolving items that also evolve as you craft recipes within a certain non-trivial range (reportedly 100) above your current skill level. Once you pass into the next skill level bracket, the trophy should evolve soon afterward. The trophies can also summon weight-reducing bags like the older trophies. When you take these bags to Jolum in the Bazaar, you get an Essence, and can combine the Essence in the research container appropriate to your class to get a permanent weight-reducing bag specific to research.

If you're not an inveterate tradeskiller you might miss the part where you have to go to Abysmal sea and turn in the sludge to get the filtered sludge. It may well be on here, but I missed it. So long as you can find the guy, my mind's deliberately blocking his name, it'll be smooth as silk so long as you don't try to use the shammy's alchemical medical pouch to change the sludge to filtered.

Updated, thanks.

No longer requires you to make the Tempest Rune Swatch. I would guess that it has been updated because of the Wizard 1.5 quest. Instead, it now has you make Highland Sludge Drying Powder. Recipe is Gnomish Heat Source, Sample of Filtered Highland Sludge.

Make sure when doing this or ANY trophy to hail the event coordinator and get your task 1st!!!
I found out hard way after making everything on the list. Even though i did make every item and folled the rules as stated..i didnt ask for the list 1st. Soooo, when i tried to turn in to the judge he just gave back" not needing them".

Hope this helps others to not waste time and money.
