o year but it seems I remember that there was some method of remembering recipes, rather than having to INPUT each item every time. Anyone know?

You can mark recipes as favorites in the tradeskill window.

My tradeskill is at 300 without my trophy and 336 with. Is there any way to raise my skill past the 300 cap. Seems that there should be since there combines that trivial at over 400.

If I'm not mistaken, you can get past 300 with your alchemy trophy (which is originally quested in West Freeport).

what is the easiest way to go from 200-300 skill level as far as the easiest items to farm
200+ skill
# Nov 28 2006 at 11:44 AM Rating: Decent
IMO heading to Sirens Grotto at the zone in from Cobalt Scar and farming the Deepwater Inks there was the easiest. I did this in my upper 60's level with Speedbump tanking, and me healing it, and casting Panther. Fighting underwater can suck, but for some reason, agro seems to be easier for Speedbump to hold there, leaving me able to cast without being interupted as much. Mobs will mostly drop 2 of the Inks if they drop any. Also a chance for Fellspine to spawn and get the twink haste belt for selling. Level IX potions don't sell as well as the Level X potions, but from the drops, and selling the IX potions at just a little above cost, came out from the farming with more cash than I went into it with.

If you want to head to Dreadlands with a forager and also spend some time there pressing the forage button, Nodding Blue Lilly are a fairly common forage, and you can use those to augment your skilling, making the X potions.

A lot of Shaman swear by the farming in Old Seb for the NBL, but my luck with mobs that run has always meant a huge train (usually ending in my demise <grin>).

This is just my observation, and honestly, there is no wrong way to do it. It all depends on your play style and what you find interesting.

I thought I lost all my alchemy recipies and was all bummed out. Once I took a little time to adjust the trivial numbers in the open bag,,,, Ahhhh! More potions, no need for the bearskin bag and I could still make heal potions to PL my new alts! All set SONY

Can anyone tell me where to buy the bag at? it isnt anywhere in these posts i looked in baz for the bearskin and med bag but came up short any info would help thanks~

This shows a list of vendors that sell the standard Medicine Bag
#StingrayRR, Posted: Apr 03 2006 at 8:33 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I have been searching all the links and posts. I have found a lot of nice Alchemy lists and items....but no one seems to be able to tell me HOW DO YOU MAKE A POTION? I know medicine bags dont work anymore...did something replace them? I have been told to go to Abismal Sea to get a bag, but nothing I see here talks about a bag. Is it really as complicated as it looks? Is it even worth trying to do anymore?
RE: Alchemy instructions, please?
# Apr 27 2006 at 12:31 PM Rating: Decent
Medicine bags work the same as they did before the revamp of the Alchemy system, it's just that almost all of the old recipes have been removed and new recipes placed in the game. The old Bearskin bag now works like a Medicine bag, and is not used to make multi-dose potions anymore, as all the current potions stack to at least 20 (some of them up to 100 in the case of ones that are thrown).

I have a lot of fun with Alchemy, so I do think it is still worth it, but that is just my opinion.

Alchemy Matrix for new potions
# Mar 22 2006 at 11:26 AM Rating: Decent
Here is a link to a matrix on creating most (if not all) of the new potions. No trivials listed, but it will help you with the figuring out the new recipes.
#StingrayRR, Posted: Apr 03 2006 at 7:34 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I looked at the link to try to understand the new potion process. I am a fairly bright person, but this is way too complicated. Why do they always nerf Shamans? Is there a simple way to explain the new process?

Shaman nerfed again
# Feb 26 2006 at 7:57 PM Rating: Decent
Now that Shaman have been nerfed again... all the dose potions ie. sow, gate, illusion, etc. obsolete now... Is alchemy even worth it? Lets face it, sow and gate were part of the economy... now made obsolete with PoR expansion (not to mention that 1.0 and 1.5 {for Shaman} epic screwed with the Freeport changes)... <insert own expletive here>... I may as well play EQ2 and have just as much unfun as I did there.

All that was really changed were the recipies and potions are stackable. The omission of multi dose was hardly a nerf, you just price single dose stack them and people buy however many they want. Only "nerf" if ya wanna call it that would be the trick of selling the 10 dose to a merchant when 1 dose left.
RE: Shaman nerfed again
# Feb 27 2006 at 3:22 PM Rating: Decent
Most people knew that for the 10 dose potions you were to sell them to a merchant when there was one charge left and the merchant would give you the price for 10 dose of that potions. eg. You buy 10 dose gate potion in the bazaar for 3000 plat. You use 9 charges then sell it to a merchant for about 1900 plat and then the 9 charges about 122 plat a charge. Now you can't do that trick and each charge will be 300 plat. I think that is a huge nurf. People are going to be more careful on when they use the potion and not as many will be sold.

Where can I find out what the potions are used for? I went to recipes and input the potion but came back with none found. Trying to find out which potions are used in recipes or are they stand-alone. One in particular I was wondering about is the Jack-O-Lantern potion??? Anyone able to address this?

Thanks for the assistence.

If you mean Jackolantern Extract, it is used to make yellow dye

I did notice that if you put skill lvl under 40 that the Jack-0-Lantern receipe did come up in your Medicine bag trival.
For finding recipes and components
# Dec 07 2005 at 8:06 AM Rating: Decent
A good place to look for recipes and the components for alchemy are on there they go more into details on where to find the drops needed for alchemy, and there is a good trivia list. helped me alot. For making money for alchemy... SOW potions (blood of the wolf) is still a good way to make some plat for your alchemy, selling them in the bazaa. Also gate potions and dye can make you some money. when you get higher up making the clarity/speed/healing potions are also a good way of making pp. not sure if they recipes have been added to the the trivia lists yet. but you can find the recipes in your medicin bag. Clarity IX potions are my favorite to make. All components for this can be vendor bought in pok exept the deepwater ink ..but those you can get from mobs in kedge keep and sirens grotto, also used for the speed and healing potions IX. the trivia is 302 so they are good for some time.

Bearskin Potion Bag Token

What is a bearskin potion bag token? I was in the bazaar looking for a bearskin potion bag..the one that you can combine either 5 or 10 potions in...and I saw this token but I don't know how it is used. I can only find the bag that allows you to summon a temporary bag for combining potions. It only allows me to combine 10 at a time. Putting less than ten in and pressing combine gives me an error message that it cannot be combined. Need info on the one I mentioned above that allows you to combine 5 or ten and if the token mentioned above has any bearing on this.

Buy the token. Hand it to Caerlyna, the barbarian woman npc in the bazaar, and she will give you the potion bag. Since bags cannot be put inside bags, Sony came up with this as a way to allow the sale of bags in the bazaar.

You get the token by handing the bag to Caerlyna.

all bearskin potion bags including the foldable one can make a 5 dose potion. Make sure 2 things A) you only have 5 single dose of a potion in the bag and B) the 5 potions are the same some look alike but are VERY different hehe. I had the same problem for about 20 minutes one day then realized i had a tears of prexus in with my sow potions lol
Level cap?

Level cap used to be (level-24)*5.

I have leveled up a Shaman to 25 and began doing Alchemy. Supposedly the Caps are off meaning you CAN go to level 300. I still think there is a level cap of 5*level. Why do I think this?

I had my Shammy cruising along getting 2 or 3 skillups per stack of combines. I seem to hit a wall at 125 though (5*level). I made 3 or 4 stacks of combines of a trivial 127 combine with NO skillups.

I have since leveled the Shaman to 29. I will now try to continue skilling in Alchemy. If what I suspect is true, I won't be able to go past 145.

Level cap?

that might have been the case when you wrote the post...but the moment i got to 25 i started making potions and went to 180 in 2 days

sometimes it takes more than 2 or 3 attempts to raise your skill....from 145-146 took me 15 attempts (and to much plat) to get a skill up then i got another skill up with the next attempt then another 20 attempts for im broke hehe but i do know that some of the skill ups are a pain and take alot of effort hehe

Im broke from bringing my alchemy up how do i make pp without goin broke before i even make somethin? PLZ HELP!!!
# Jul 16 2005 at 6:48 AM Rating: Decent
well that depends on your level....a popular was is to goto ButcherBlock Mountains and kill the gobs there taking thier blood (takes less room and weights less) and the heads and sell them for just over 4 plat each (i like keepin more blood than heads....full stacks can make nice loot) but the spawn times are a pain in the *** hehe. at higher levels goto Crystal Caverns and farm Velium and sell in bazaar.....smiths are always after the stuff hehe.

ok, here's what i don't understand. if the equation is :
(Your Level - 24) X 5
then at level 58 i should be at 170. which is all good, but alla's site says at level 60 I can cap Alchemy at a 200 triv. if the equation is right, then at level 60 i should triv at 180. i'm not sure i'm quite understanding this, if someone could please spell it out for me:) thanks
