    Glass blower makes the hollow prism then tink makes it to the jeweled one.
    You need to make enchanted switches think think does that too. It has been such a long time since I made the taliment recharge things, I think there is a third part but I don't remember I haven't made any in over a year.

    Seems to me you´re looking for the thing called "Runed Switch". They´re a pain in the butt to make.

    We sell those at RSA Mall for 2 K each.

    Runed switch is the most crafting intensive item in the game, you need 6 skills:

    Mining to mine the sand
    glassblowing (speciality of alchemy) to turn the sand into a hollow prism
    inscription to turn the hollow prism into a runed prism
    Lumber jack to get a switch, then inscription again to make it runed
    tinkering to make a jewelled filligree
    and finally carpentry to put the whole thing together.

    Special thanks to Jerimiah, for all the PMs on the issue. [​IMG]

    I made lots of runed switches, mostly for fun, because my 2 chars had all the skills between them, but no one ever needed them. I couldn't even give them away. I think I ended up dumping them out on the ground by a bank when I dropped a house. Do people actually use them to recharge their talisman? [​IMG]

    *edit*

    LOL...found this old post by someone:

    <blockquote><hr>

    how to make 10 Runed Switches...

    On GM Miner (with sand mining ability)
    Collect 80 sand

    On GM Lumberjack
    Collect 10 switches

    On GM Alchemist (with glassblowing ability)
    Create 10 Hollow Prisms
    Requires: 80 sand

    On GM Inscriber
    Create 10 Runed Prisms
    Requires: 1 Hollow Prism, 1 blank scroll, 1 spider silk, 1 black pearl

    Create 10 Enchanted Switches
    Requires: 1 blank scroll, 1 spiders silk, 1 black pearl, 1 switch

    On GM Tinker
    Create 10 Jeweled Filigrees
    Requires: 2 ingots, 1 star sapphire, 1 ruby

    On GM Carpenter
    Create 10 Runed Switches
    Requires: 1 Enchanted Switch, 1 Runed Prism, 1 Jeweled Filigree, 2 boards/logs

    At any stage you may fail to make an item and so may need extra ingredients. And, of course, most of the ingredients don't stack so you will get Carpal Tunnel Syndrome from all the clicking and dragging.

    Who was the nutter that came up with this recipe?

    I agree with that last sentence...I think the devs who created ML had connections in the carpal tunnel syndrome treatment industry.

    The sand collection is the worst IMO. I have always thought, with bottles available for 15GP each from NPC vendors (10GP for cheap faction town) as time consuming as it is to dig up sand, and the nuisance that it doesn't stack in your pack...making ONE bottle for ONE sand pile, is insane. That is basically a wasted option in the glassblowing menu. Also, having to haul your crafter out to gargoyle city, just to buy a crummy glass blowing pipe that might have 30 uses on it if you are lucky...grrrr...but I digress. [​IMG]

    I also hated how component intensive it was to make these. While the switches themselves stack, the runed switches do not (can't remember if the enchanted ones do). Also, the jeweled filigree do not stack. [​IMG]

    If you use colored boards for that last step (2 boards) the runed switch retains the wood color, but it doesn't make the switch any more powerful from what I recall.

    I do. I use my bless item on my talisman of clean bandage summoning. That way after I get my butt kicked and killed I can rez my pet even though others have looted all my bandies.

    I have 3 runed switches, I took them off the vendor because they didn't sell.

    I can mine the sand. I can't make the prisms. I can't inscribe the prisms, nor the switches, but my husband's char can. I can chop the switches, make the jewelled filigrees and put them together.

    All we need is an alchemist who's read the glass blowing book.
