    My elf crafter is at the skill point cap of 720, and I currently have no Musicianship to make instruments from Carpentry.
    I know that there are some items out there that increase music like the Song Woven Mantle. Are there any items to get music to 45 with having a 0 base skill? If there are, anyone know exactly which ones I'll need?

    I have 80 Magery right now, but I guess I can lower it a little if I need some extra music points.

    Its possible as an elf:
    - song woven mantle +10 (but expensive)
    - ring +15
    - bracelet +15
    - singing axe +5
    (- lib talisman + 5
    - travesty mask +10 but both are expensive)

    Thanks for the quick reply! Now that I see that it's possible, you just made my day.
    That being said, I think that finding the items is going to be harder than anything else.
    Anyway, thank again!

    The ring and bracelet are easy to get with an imbuer (what sucks is that Music and Magery are in the same group, so you have to have separate magery & music gear, for the add-ons.

    The Singing axe recipe is an uncommon one (one of the "common" recipes that can be made with a runic, but much rarer than the majority of the commons) from Heartwood/Sanctuary. It's harder to get the mantle recipe from the cloth item quests than it is to get the axe recipe from the metal weavers.

    The talisman is easy to get as well, if you're willing to part with crafting resources. Both ingots and leathers can be donated to the library's master of trades. If you farmed drakes or wyverns in Fel with a human (44 horned leather), it would take 1250 critters' worth of horned leather (55k) to get one (around 1100 with a harvester's blade). In Trammel with an elf (no harvester's blade), it would take 2750. Alternatively, it takes about 15000 valorite ingots.

    Thanks for the pointers!
    This is a time consuming task to say the least. Because my shard is smaller and has less vendors, finding the items I need is not working out too well.

    This may not help you, but whenever I want to craft something that requires music I soulstone off a skill, buy music to 30+ from the npc bards in Brit, then equip a ring or bracelet with enough music to get to 45. After I'm done, I set the music down, and reclaim the skill I stored on the soulstone.

    That's actually not a bad idea. A bit more tedious, but effective nevertheless.

    I have a few soulstones, so I can easilly just soulstone a skill, raise music to 45, and when I'm done, soulstone the music and take my regular skill back.
    I'm still going to search for the individual items, as I would prefer not to need a dedicated soulstone of music for the rest of my life.
    The soulstone method will work fine until I find all the items (may be a while).

    Thanks for the idea!

    On one of my crafters, I just have items with skill bonuses on her all the time that just allows me to keep the music skill on her.
