Craftable Soulstones

Discussion in 'UO Botany and Nutrition' started by PowerFullPete, Jan 19, 2010.

  1. I Love the idea of making craftable soulstones, but for one charge and the difficulty to get the Shimmering crystals, and then to have to crush 2 of em for one craftable stone is crazy. Wish you would get more crystal from a shimmering crystal or at least make em only take one.

    And you can fail at crafting one :)

    There is indeed room for improvement here, I can't see any crafter making them and all veterans have infinite soulstones anyways.

    Ya it will be years before I will need one given all my soul stone tokens all my characters got across multiple accounts that one christmas accident. I would like to craft them to sell, but that is a lot of work for a bunch of my characters and difficult ingredients.

    I bet I won't get to crafting one unless some new person really needed one badly and then I would probably give them a token instead of the time sink. Good idea, but not a balanced crafting item.

    It's crafted off the glass blowing alchemy sub skill, use the blowpipe. You need to break down 2 of the crystals that drop from the shimmering eff boss. There is another item, but it's minor compared to those.

    Here are two screen shots of a crafted soulstone fragment that I found on a vendor outside Zento on the Mizuho shard. First picture shows the tooltip information and the second one shows you the un-highlighted color of one of these fragments.

    I have no idea whether the 200k price on this one is typical or not. This is the first one I've ever seen.

    It is a great idea, but not worth the investment for a one charge return. I suspect this will be another dud like baskets. :(

    It would be more logical, imo, to recharge used frags and clearing off the full soulstones people have picked up at IDOC's through the years.

    Agree with Flora. This might be useful for the few people who get bored and change skills often but can't get vet reward soulstones yet... but otherwise would be more useful as a recharge on the fragments or clearing for old stones.

    They're certainly trying to add a lot to the gardening world lately!
