    Re: Quick CHA price tip

    Slink,

    Ahh sounds like youve had exactly the same problem I just had. I too am 59, spent a couple of hours going from 230 to 245 with no major hassles, then spent 3 hours going absolutely nowhere. Sounds like this skill is now level based, as opposed to the usual thought that it is like other trade skills that are able to be trained to 250

    I have yet to see if I can train further at Stanos

    Regards

      It is level based.

      you max out at 200 at level 50. From then on, its 5 more points per level.

      51- 205
      52- 210
      53- 215...etc

      59- 245
      60- 250.

        Skoobin, all trades use the higher of either int or wis. Dex effects how often your melee skills go up it has nothing to do with trades. I've also heard the rumor that str determines how often your smithing goes up. It's all crap. The only thing that is used in ANY trade is either int or wis, whichever is higher.

            Seems to me that there's a third recipe that can go in between those two. Ground Garlic and Red Helbore, both purchased in Neriak's Third Gate. I can't post specifics right now - Kiky's Poisonous Pages seems to have exceeded Tripod's bandwidth consumption restriction...

                  Regarding Apply Poison, I don't think there is a trivial level on apply poison anymore. I used Athropic Sap to get from mid-70s to 159. It is supposed to trivial at 106. /shrug Deeleeryous

                    I have never seen a trivial list for APPLY skill, there was a post some time ago that snake poisons would get you all the way to 200 apply and that has certainly held true up to 170 apply.

                    I believe the trivial stats you are looking at are MAKE poison trivials. Storgue

                          * Wanted to add: This is an excellent guide btw Furina, it's been a wonderful resource for me. The detailed information is also a great time saver. I have sent dozens of rogues looking for PM advice back to this thread and have updated eqtraders with a link to this post, and a fix for their broken link to the Safehouse Tome of Mastery (it's pointing to the old one, which unfortunately just gives them an error msg).

                          Currently I am at 225 (*grr, originally put in my new fletching stat 234) and have found that if you bring charisma gear with you, and make your own sealed vials - you CAN turn a profit making SoS and selling back to the vendor. With Cha gear on mine are selling back at 14pp 2g per poison.

                          I am making roughly 6pp per poison (that includes my costs for making sealed vials), by first wearing my best dex gear (207 dex) and then swapping to Charisma gear (128cha) to sell and buy more suspension and creeper ivy.

                          It's a chore collecting the skins and making 10 stacks of vials in a sitting, but I've made 3600-3700 going from 200 to 225. This is several days work (two evenings to be exact) so it's no get rich quick scheme, but if you can raise your poison level and get a bit of pp in the meantime, then it's well worth the time to put into it.

                          Re: Apply poison. I am sitting at 120 and for me, see no need to waste the poisons, low level or otherwise. I've failed only one time in my entire poison making using career, that includes high skill poisons such as Spirit of Sloth. If I start failing to a noticable degree, I'll make some cheap chit and work on it. Edited by: HarloweRogue at: 7/9/02 10:53:15 am

                            Some skills are based off the highest of int, wis and dex, just as smithing is based off the highest of int, wis and str. Not sure if poison is one of those.

                              Soot Hemlock is farmed, but (at least on Bristlebane) the druid merchant in Lavastorm usually has tons of them for about a plat each. Blusco Kickshaw-Stonefoot

                                That's true, I do see alot of it on the vendors. I snatch it up, just because I like to have a variety of poisons on me.

                                I probably am too much of a pack rat with this stuff, I need to keep one poison component mule in the bazaar. I was running out of bank space, I save everything and friends are always passing me random components as well.
