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?

     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).

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!

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!

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*

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.

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!
