Scribing

back to: Tradeskills


Scribing involves both the creation of scribing inks and also the creation of magical scrolls. Scribing inks come in three varieties, lesser, average and greater. Scribing inks are created at the Scribing Ink Desk and require eggs, enchanting oil, an empty glass vial as well as other ingredients. Ink requires 1 honey, 1 egg, 1 glass vial, 1 enchanting oil and the spell school components (1 for lesser ink for lower level spells, 2 per average ink and 3 per greater ink). You can find honey, as well as most of the spell school components in the jerstien garden. Eggs can be bought from the baker (or gotten from chickens but that takes so long it's not worth it, they only cost 2 gp anyway), and enchanting oil and glass vials can be bought from the man in the apothacary in Jerstien, or alchemists in other towns. Spell school components are things like Aloe Leafs, Garlic, Graveyard Dirt, Witchhazel, Spotted Mushrooms and Spider Silk. If successful, the ink will be placed in the players inventory along with an empty glass vial. If unsuccessful, the recipe ingredients will be destroyed, however the player will still recover the glass vial.

Scrolls are divided into 3 categories. The lesser scrolls (levels 1-5) are created at the Lesser Scribing Station, the average scrolls (levels 6-10) are created at the Average Scribing Station, and the greater scrolls (levels 11-15) are created at the Greater Scribing Station. Scrolls are made by combining a blank scroll (simple scrolls made can be made by woodcrafters, or all scrolls can be bought in shops with these prices: 5 gp for basic (lvls 0-3), 100 gp for fine paper (lvls 4-6) and 250gp for silk paper (lvls 7-9). ), the appropriate scribing ink, the appropriate gem dust (created during gemcraft when you craft the gem out of the raw material...raw material can be mined in many places, the easiest of which is around jerstien and the dillinar mines) as well as the required memorized spell. The easiest way to find what is needed is to put something, anything, into a scribing desk and the menu will open where you can select the spell lvl, then school, then particular spell you want to scribe and it will tell you what you need in order to make it work. These ingredients are placed in one of the above listed Scribing devices. If successful, the scroll will be placed in the players inventory along with an empty glass vial. If unsuccessful, the recipe ingredients will be destroyed, however the player will still recover the glass vial. Scribing requires the memorization of the corresponding magic spell and the memorized spell will be deleted from the players memorized spell list whether the player is successful or unsuccessful. Intelligence (50%) and Wisdom (50%) are the key abilities for Scribing.

Druids and Clerics may scribe some spells as well. However, at this time there is no list for the spells a druid or cleric may scibe. If anyone wishes to add such a list, please do.

A few tips. Buff your intelligence and wisdom to have a higher success rate. To increase your lvl fast go for necromancy spells as graveyard dirt is limitless in how much you can get (go to the crypt in kerns flatlands to get this). Also, if you're a wizard and you memorise the spell as extended you will be able to make three scrolls per extended spell memorised (as opposed to one per spell memorised normally). This is a good way to mass produce.
