    This past weekend my legendary smith did the Jamal/Iosep quest to get the bone machete recipe. He completed the Iosep portion and returned to Jamal with the sealed notes from Iosep. When my smith talked to Jamal I got the quest music and accepted the next stage of the quest to get the tainted water from the Grove. At that point I figured I would have the machete recipe. Nope. Instead I noticed in my journal an entry something like, "You try to grasp the recipe for the bone machete but it slips from your fingers."

    Here's my question: do I need to get the corrupted water samples before I learn the recipe? If so, my only option would be to buy a bone machete from someone to get in to the Grove to complete the quest. Right?

    Thanks for the help.

    Did you check your smithy menu? Iirc you didnt get the acutal recipe, it just unlocks in the smithy menu.

    Doh! I never did check the crafting gump. I'll check next time I'm in game. I figured from the journal entry that my smith didn't learn the recipe.

    Thanks Kas!

    Just to update, last night I tried and was able to make a bone machete with my smith. So he did in fact get the recipe from Jamal, even though Jamal's words made it sound otherwise.

    It doesn't work that way...

    The "recipe" isn't a scroll like all the other recipes - it's activated directly into the character that does the quest - so you HAVE to do the quest on your crafter.

    I saw one of these while I was out shopping, been a long time since I've done it.
    Thought I'd make a dollar and get a few, what a waste of time.
    this was on Sonoma..

    Yes. It is one of the funnier things about t-hunting. That you can get recipes that were never available in the first place as a recipe. Like the bone machete or the stone anvil (east)
