Empyrean Housing - Part 2 - Crafting With Savvy

     Hi everyone! We're going to finish up the Empyrea housing today with the second half from Loligo, which are no easier than last time.
     Chain Reel - 74000g
     This had to be the most challenging recipe so far. Not only is it super expensive but you will need 50 Platinum, 50 Flying Squid Ink, 100 Aethyr Ore, 120 Copper, 120 Nickel, 200 Mist Wood and 25 Flawless Onyx, I guess this would be one way to make some room in your reagent cabinet!

Hunting for Aether, Golden Pearl, and Shell Reagents

     *Whines* This week is HARD! I was hoping to track down some critters that drop this week's reagents AND drops Christmas stuff but yeah that so not going to happen. Mostly I found some critters in Mirage that drop Christmas seeds all year long. Is anyone THAT dedicated to farming to pick a fight in Mirage? MooShu or Marlybone maybe.

Aether, Aquamarine, Golden Pearl, and Shell: Gardening for Reagents

     Last week we learned that Aether, Golden Pearl, and Shell are on our grocery list for the Celestia Clothing Recipes. We'll also need Aquamarine for the gear that is found in Sudrilund, Grizzleheim. When Dezzy asked me for a gardening recommendation, I had answered off the top of my head with King Parsley. I was pretty close! King Parsley will get you Aether and Aquamarine in nice amounts. However, upon closer inspection, Maelstrom Snap Dragons will net you all four ingredients that we are searching for in the upcoming months. PLUS you can get mega snacks from Maelstrom Snap Dragons when they elder! That's always a plus! :) Also, you can harvest all but the shells from both Deadly Helephant Ears and Evil Magma Peas.

Life Wizard's Celestia & Grizzleheim Crafted Clothing

     When you get to level 50ish, things sure do get interesting. You have the Celestia gear at level 55 and the Grizzleheim gear at level 56. Which is better Celestia or Grizzleheim? I really think that Celestia gear is seriously underrated. A lot of wizards don't bother crafting the Celestia gear and just jump right to their Sudrilund Set. It is hard to beat the item cards that you get from the Grizzleheim clothing but if you do often use your secondary school spells, don't rule out the Celestia Gear.

Empyrean Housing - Part 1 - Crafting With Savvy

     Greetings and welcome to Empyrea! There are only a few items so I thought it would be nice to stray from our normal crafting to adventure in the new world. First off, these recipes are not for the faint of heart, none of these recipes are easy. The vendor is named Loligo, you can find him in Aerial Shore, Empyrea and he requires you to be a Visionary Crafter.

Hunting for Harvest Hannah

     Found her! Does that mean I get to take the rest of the day off? NO?! Aww mannn. Harvest Hannah is easy to find obviously, even I could do it. She is in the Shopping District of Wizard City, by the fountain heading towards Elik's Edge. What isn't so easy to find, however, is the stuff that she sells, without spending your hard earned crowns. But fear not, I have some handy tips for you.

But Where is the Gardening?

     What is the hub bub about the new "revered" crafting level? Let me help you understand the new reagents, where to find them, and how to get them.

Wanted: New Clothing Recipe Vendor Location?

     Those of you who have found your way to the test realm may be aware of the news! There has been an outcry from the wizarding community about the fact that we are way overdue for some new crafted gear. Our pleas have been heard - though this is not exactly what we may have had in mind, I am hopeful that it is a precursor for goodness to come. Nope. I'm actually not talking about the new level 120+ gear offered in Empyrea. I'm talking about level 50+ gear that offers healing properties. What?? I know, I know, you think I'm joking right? Unfortunately I didn't get a pic any of the Healer's gear. I had wanted to check out Empyrea and thought there would be plenty of time! But let me start at the beginning.

Celestial Housing - Part 1.3 - Crafting With Savvy

     Hello everyone, this week we're looking at the last of this section with the Deep Sea Music Maker, Star Chalice, Celestain Planter and Celestian Sconce. The recipes vary in crafting level required and amount in gold but are all reasonably priced this time, no outrageous amounts.

Meteor Strike! Hunting for Treasure Cards

     Hiya Folks! Welcome back to Hunter's Lair. I have notes here from both Dezzy and Terri Saying that you might be hunting for Meteor Strike Treasure Cards and Burning Snap Dragon Seeds this week. I know of 72 creatures that drop Burning Snap Dragon, and 56 thing-a-dos that drop Meteor Strike. I can only think of 8 critters that drop both.

Sunday, October 8, 2017

Meteor Strike: Gardening for Treasure Cards

     Hello fellow gardeners! I'm afraid that I don't have very good news for you again this week. You'll only get Meteor Strikes from Burning Snap Dragons and in 30 days I only received TWO. Ugh. You don't necessarily want to increase the growing rate with these since it doesn't need to be an elder harvest to receive Meteor Strike.

     IT'S HERE! IT'S HERE! HALLOWEEN IS REALLY HERE! Halloween is my favorite holiday in the Spiral and there is much excitement here at the Castle of Crafts!

Fire Wizard's Guide to Dragonspyre Crafted Clothing

     These are the last of the Dragonspyre crafted clothing outfits to be found here in Dezzy's Closet. You would think that Dragonspyre would favor Fire wizards, but this is not the case. Wizards that have chosen Fire spells as their primary school are the last wizards to reach their vendor in the Drake Hatchery. Most likely, wizards that have done their side quests will be well above level 44 when they reach this area.

     You'll find Anilla Firemantle across the street from the Teleporter hub and I strongly suggest you stop and talk to her as you run by, if you haven't already. Look below! I actually have a map for her :)

Celestial Housing - Part 1.2 - Crafting With Savvy

     Hey everyone, this week we're going to look at five more items from Celestia; the Celestian Crescent Artifact, Lamp, Bookshelf, Tree Sprig and Crystal Street Lamp. The Crescent Artifact is found with Zellozosia the HomeGilder in the Sardonyx, the rest can be found with Gearwise in the Base Camp.

Blizzard: Hunting for Treasure Cards

     BRRRR! The things I do. Not only did I volunteer to get pummelled by a Blizzard but I added lots of creatures that drop it. *Groan* There are comments from the peanut gallery. Fine. Digby, Alric, Dezzy, and Ghost added most of them, but i did do a couple too!!

Blizzard! Gardening for Treasure Cards

     I can absolutely, positively, without a doubt, tell you that your best gardening source for Blizzard Treasure Cards is *drum roll* the Frozen Fly Trap! OK, who guessed that the Frozen Fly Trap is the only source for Blizzards? You'd be right, which would be why it is THE best source. However, it is not a bad source, pretty good actually.

Ice Wizard's Guide to Dragonspyre Crafted Clothing

     We have a special guest here in Dezzy's Closet this week! Our very own Emma Icecrafter is here sporting her Set of the Fireblizzard that she is currently wearing as she quests in Dragonspyre with Ghost. Emma says that she is very happy with her gear, as Dragonspyre marks the beginning of Ice wizards' exceptional Health boosts: nearly an additional 250 health than any other wizards will see with their crafted gear! Emma is preparing for tankdom and we certainly are looking forward to having a tank within our group!

     Ice wizards that are level 44 or higher can buy their recipes from Fenrik Doomseeker in the Crystal Grove. You can find him loitering not far from the Teleport Hub. All three recipes will cost a total of 4406 gold.

Celstial Housing - Part 1.1 - Crafting With Savvy

     Hi there! Are you ready to get started? As promised, we're starting with the Celestian Wishing Well, Warrior Statue, Vase and Magician Statue. Almost all of these recipes can be found with Gearwise in Celestia's Base Camp and be Adept Crafter or higher (Master Crafter or higher for the Warrior Statue).

Humongofrog! Hunting for Treasure Cards

     There are 73 creatures that drop Humongofrog treasure cards. I have info on, um, well, 39 of them. I can tell you that you are mainly going to find it dropped in Savarstaad Pass, Grizzleheim; Krokotopia; Spiral Cup Gauntlet (Tier 5 - some of the critters on Tier 4 drop it too) and assorted areas in Celestia.

Myth Wizard's Guide to Dragonspyre Crafted Clothing

     Have you been keeping up with your crafting quests? Just a friendly reminder since you will need to be a Master Artisan crafter in order to craft the Dragonspyre gear. Drop in and purchase your recipes from Roanna Sorrowscale just as soon as can. She can be found in Dragonspyre Academy, between the Basilica portal and the drake that takes you to The Great Spyre.

Celestial Housing Introduction - Crafting With Savvy

     I love all of the "Atlantian" Celestial stuff, the colors, the futuristic look, everything, it has to be my favorite theme! But the Floating Land/Water-mole stuff is cool also (create your very own island resort to rest your tired feet and relax until the Spiral needs you again), and then there are the Marleybone items and the underwater items . Being that the themes are so different I'm going to do this world's craftable housing in four sections. I'm going to start with the items that look amazing in the Celestial Observatory and then tackle the rest after.

Seraph - Hunting for Treasure Cards

     Helloooo! I know, I know, I missed posting last week. I been busy, I swear! Alric and I have been busting our humps trying to track down all the creatures that you can collect animus from. We almost had them all when Monstrologist Burke added Treants, Pigs, and Gobblers into the mix! As it is, we are currently at 475 of the critters and Alric and I are currently in Crimson Fields, MooShu collecting several more to add to that.

Seraph - Gardening for Treasure Cards

Angel Oaks in Terri's Garden

     Okie dokie Life wizards, Dezzy said you might need some help finding Seraph cards. I have got a really nice plant for you. The Angel Oak is the only plant that you can harvest Seraph TC from. But never fear, it is fairly easy to take care of since it doesn't attract any pests higher than rank 2.

Life Wizard's Guide to Dragonspyre Crafted Clothing

     Welcome to Dragonspyre clothing, Life Wizards. Stop and see Egon Dreadfaust just as soon as you have access to the Forum. If you have a friend that you can port to there, even better. He doesn't usually wander very far from the Teleport hub, I couldn't even tempt him to come and visit us today.

Azteca Housing - Crafting with Savvy - Part 6

     Part six?! My goodness, so many great housing items! This post covers the last four housing objects from Cantares, the empty sarcophagus, obscure codex, tool rack and gold azteca column. Cantares says he's going to miss our visits and hopes that we'll stop by from time to time to save him from those pesky monquistadors.

Member Gardening Rewards

     Curiosity question: Do you have plants that sit at elder awaiting the glorious few days that members receive double rewards? If so, which ones? Are you gardening for reagents or mega snacks? Are you hoping to double the number of seeds/plants you currently have? All of the above?

Death Wizard's Guide to Dragonspyre Crafted Clothing

     Are you ready Death Wizards? You are going to need to track down Nada Sunderblade. She will be found loitering in The Necropolis just waiting for customers to come buy clothing recipes from her.

Azteca Housing - Crafting with Savvy - Part 5

     Hello, how are you all today? Busy saving the Sprial as always? Awesome! Have a few minutes for crafting as you drop your loot off at your bank? You're in luck then! I just so happen to have four more recipes for you! This time I have the Fancy Canoe, Feathered Throne, Jaguar Loom and Shell Coat, which will you craft first?

Kraken - Hunting for Treasure Cards

     Did you know that there are 8 different Krakens in the spiral that we might face? Only 5 of these can be farmed and is all that most wizards will ever see. Not surprising, Storm wizards will face 7 of these creatures and Balance wizards will face 6. Of those five that we can farm, only two actually drop the Kraken treasure card, the Sea Lord in Dragonspyre and the Enraged Kraken in MooShu.

Kraken - Gardening for Treasure Cards in Terri's Garden

   Hello fellow gardeners! I really wish that I had better news for you this month. Dezzy tells us in her Storm Wizard's Guide to Dragonspyre Crafted Clothing that a total of 25 Kraken are needed to craft each entire clothing set. There is only 1 plant which can give Kraken Treasure Cards. As most of you know, I grow 10 plants at a time. From my experience, Maelstrom Snap Dragons only produce Krakens at elder harvest, and I have only ever received ONE card per cycle from my 10 plants.

   You could have better luck growing more and using Moolinda's treasure cards to give all plants sun and water, but those can be hard to come by. You can often get the sun spell in the bazaar but let's face it, if you are going to resort to a trip to the bazaar, you may as well just buy the Kraken treasure cards. You could grow them anyways and hope to also receive braided vine for your efforts, but I've received even fewer of those than Kraken. Hunter may have some better news for you next week as far as farming for Kraken cards but I'm afraid gardening is a bust. Sorry that I can't help you more :(

Storm Wizard's Guide to Dragonspyre Crafted Clothing

     The second clothing vendor that we run across in Dragonspyre is Todor Warchanter. The Grand Chasm is Todor's favorite haunt. He has clothing recipes for Storm wizards that are level 44 or higher. I think Storm wizards will be happily surprised with the boosts given here. A little lower health boost than other wizards see in this world but some serious damage and accuracy boosts!

Azteca Housing - Crafting with Savvy - Part 4

     Hey everyone, sorry it's been so long since I've posted, things have been a bit crazy, so crazy I'm only going to be posting every few weeks instead of bi-weekly. So, let's continue where we left off, crafted housing in Azteca. This post I'm going to cover the Dino Pillar, Magic Mirror, Spirit Caller Drum and Dino Bed. As before, you can visit Cantares Five Flowers in the SaltMeadow Swamp for all of these recipes (or already have them).

     The first person to get a Pet Egg during the Egg Hunt was Laura Lifesinger!
     Second person to grab a Pet Egg was our very own Dezzy!!
     Third and final winner was Tatiana Stormpants! Woohoo WTG Tat!

Sandstorm! Hunting for Treasure Cards

     Hey howdy hey! It's me again! I'm here to hop on the sandstorm bandwagon. Hey, not my fault. Dezzy says balance wizards wanting to craft the Dragonspyre clothing are going to need lots of them and I aim to be helpful. Ok, so my aim is often a bit to the left of helpful, but I'm working on it!

Sunday, April 9, 2017

Sandstorm - Gardening for Treasure Cards

     This week's post is pretty much a no brainer. Two plants can produce Sandstorm treasure cards when you harvest them: Fickle Pickles and Boom Shrooms. Growing 10 Fickle Pickles for a full month netted me 2 sandstorm treasure cards. Two. I only had 10 seeds to grow Boom Shrooms for one cycle. This took 8 days from planting to elder. Boom Shrooms produced 8 sandstorm treasure cards. EIGHT!! WOOT!

     My last blog post was about Gardening for Ore which you can also get from Fickle Pickles. Balance wizards who are looking to craft the Balance Clothing that Dezzy has been showcasing COULD plant a boat load of Fickle Pickles and hope to get enough Ore and Sandstorm -- and you WOULD ... eventually. You would also get lots of other interesting Treasure Cards, reagents, snacks, and probably enough Fickle Pickle seeds to vegetate Mirage with a bit of time and effort.

     Personally though, I would plant at least 10 Boom Shrooms for Sandstorm Treasure Cards and fill the rest of a large area with Helephant Ears to get ore. They both require water and neither have pest needs greater than rank 2. Boom Shrooms also require music, but you can easily fit 10 plants into a medium area and use 8 energy for the music spell. Then use the large area spells for water and pests and your garden is all good to go!

Balance with Elemental Based Boosts - Dragonspyre Crafted Clothing

     Elemental school spells have some seriously low accuracy. I thought Myth spells were bad, but dang. Balance wizards who have chosen elemental based spells for their secondary school will be quite happy with the accuracy boosts of these crafted clothes.

What Shall We Do? EGG HUNT!!

     Hi. Hi! HI! I'm so super excited. Who's up for an egg hunt? On Saturday April 15th, 2017 the Castle of Crafts residents will be out hunting down pet eggs from Lord Nightshade, Jade Oni, and Othin Stormfather. Watch for further details and a schedule of events to be posted SOON!

     Please keep in mind that if you are hoping to pull a Stormrider Hare mount out of anyone's hat, you will need to be specific levels for each boss:

CreatureWizards must be level:
Lord Nightshadeunder 20
Jade Oniunder 50
Othin Stormfatherunder 60

     So how many pet eggs do you see in the picture above? Shout out your answer in the comments!

Ore! Hunting for Reagents

     So there are close to 500 creatures that drop ore, I can't really be expected to have info on ALL of them yet can I? *Sigh* Scarlet and Dezzy are both nodding YES. I do know 100 creatures that drop ore. While I may not have a complete list of critters that drop ore, I DO have a couple of tricks up my sleeve. Don't I always? *WINK*

Sunday, March 12, 2017

Ore - Gardening for Reagents

     Dezzy is currently covering Dragonspyre Balance clothing and has warned that crafters will need substantial amounts of both Ore and Sandstorm treasure cards. I figured that this week I would try to help crafters out by featuring plants that can produce ore. There are four plants that are known to yield this reagent.

Balance with Spirit Based Boosts - Dragonspyre Crafted Clothing

     Welcome to the wonders of Dragonspyre clothing. Today we have the Balance clothing for wizards that have chosen spirit based spells as their secondary schools. Zanara Sablemoon apologizes that she could not be with us in person, but is here in spirit.

Windbreaker Breaks Out of the Lair

     Woot! I can NOT believe that Dezzy and Savvy are trusting me to post on the blog! Woohoo! What kind of trouble can I get into? HEY! Why does it say that my posts need to be approved by a moderator before posting? AWW MAN! So NOT fair!

     So last week Terri was telling you that Orange Dandelions and Trumpet Vines were the best seeds to plant iffin you're needing leather straps. But where can you get the seeds, you might ask? Well, if you wanna be boring, you CAN just run to the bazaar. I don't think I have ever seen fewer than 100 Orange Dandelion seeds up for sale. They cost 960 gold EACH. EACH! Trumpet Vines are also plentiful, but they will run you 1920 gold. Again, that's the price for ONE!

Leather Straps - Gardening for Reagents

     If you think about it, leather straps are in great demand for crafting. They cannot be harvested as many reagents can be. They can be transmuted with only 5 bones, but bones aren't harvested anywhere in the spiral either. Believe it or not, leather straps are used in 287 recipes! Here's how it breaks down:

65 Hats
63 Robes
68 Pairs of boots
3 Amulets
1 Athame
1 Ring
66 Housing Items
Both pogo stick mounts
Transmute Ectoplasm
Chocolate Donut
Ninja Pigs Spell
15 Treasure Cards

Ice Wizards Aquila Gear Level 30

     Today is Khalkos Coppersmith's last visit in Dezzy's closet. At least for a while, until we get to the level 60 gear at any rate. Last but not least, we portray the level 30 Aquila gear for Ice wizards. Even the dropped gear gives way more health and resistance than the other schools. This could however very well be the best crafted set available in Aquila at this level.

Sunday, February 5, 2017

Evil Snow Peas - Gardening for Reagents

     Welcome back to Terri's Garden! I debated and argued with myself trying to figure out which plant to start with. There are so many AWESOME plants! Flowers that give reagents, veggies that produce treasure cards, many even give mega snacks, housing items, or PETS! How to choose? OMG it was so hard. Finally I said to myself, "Myself, there is only one plant that you can confidently predict what crafters can expect to get from harvests. It is the only plant that you've completed a full 10 harvests for a decent sample." Myself thought for a minute and then whined "But Evil Snow Peas are boring, and basically pointless unless you're an Ice wizard!" So I did some research to prove Myself wrong.

Life Wizards Aquila Gear Level 30

     Khalkos Coppersmith is back in Dezzy's closet. I swear I need to start charging him rent or something. OK Life wizards, it is your turn for a comparison of the dropped Aquila gear versus the crafted gear. The dropped gear gives way more health and resistance than the other schools - except maybe ice. I really wonder sometimes if Khalkos is in cahoots with Elik Silverfist to get more reagent sales at the bazaar.

What Shall We Do Today? B.O.X.E.S.!

     Everyone IS aware that the Professor is back with his Five B.O.X.E.S. right? I have updated my daily challenges in Scarlet's Game Room to reflect this wonderful fact! What?! You don't know about my daily challenges? O. M. G. It's like way cool!

It looks like this:

Storm Wizards Level 30 Aquila Gear

     Hear ye! Hear ye! Storms wizards, gather around and join me in Dezzy's Closet. Khalkos Coppersmith is ready to showcase the gear that you can craft to wear at level 30. We really begin to see where Storm wizards get the short end of the stick here. Most schools have close to an extra 100 health boost more than Storm wizards receive in their gear. Usually Storm wizards get a lot more damage boost to equal things out but that is not the case here at all.

Introducing Terri's Gardening Experiments

     Who knew it would be so soon that I could begin sharing my findings? Savvy has been busy combating evil in Mirage and playing with the new housing magic in our castle, so I get to fill in for her until she is ready to resume her posts! Yay me!

     Ok so at first I was going to pick a random plant to start with, but which one?? So many choices! Granted I only have one plant that I have completely finished Phase One of my experiments. Phase One, you ask? Exactly. I decided instead that maybe I should explain exactly what I have been experimenting with. It is a daunting project, I must say.

Upcoming Plans for 2017

     Hi! HAPPY NEW YEAR! Do you remember me? It's Me, Terri! You know! As in Terri's Garden? I KNOW! It has been forever since I have had the run of the blog :) But Guess what?? You'll never guess! Nope! Nuh uh! OOh, I'm gonna burst, lemme just tell ya! Dezzy is working on getting my garden ready to be included on the site! Can you believe it?! I've been gardening my little wand to the nub for TWO years trying to collect information and it seems like every time I get close, plants mutate and start doing new things! Like dropping housing items or ultra seeds! I have several different plants that I have compiled a decent amount of information on - not all the plants of course, I only have so much energy y'know - but a LOT!
