An edited informal secondary text-based summary...or, why am I still doing this quest? Need: Terathan Cuticle Sac--any Terathans Raw Yeast--any Orcs Blightborn Slime--Blightborn Slimes (Swamp south of Destard, Brit Sewers) Sack of Sugar--any Paragon, random chance on corpse Vanilla--any Paragon, random chance on corpse, or spend a week growing Vanilla Cure: Use the correct amount of each of the five ingredients @ northern Ter Mur dock. If you fail, you'll eventually blow everything up. There are at least six states prior to blow up: The reaction bubbles harmlessly The reaction bubbles and is becoming slightly unstable The reaction bubbles and is becoming increasingly unstable! The reaction bubbles and is becoming surpassingly unstable! The reaction bubbles and is becoming exceedingly unstable! The reaction bubbles and is becoming dangerously unstable! At this point I said, "**** that, I'm not getting more sugar if this thing blows up." From Petra: start with one of each ingredient, make a note of the result. 11111=?add one - 21111 = If the number is less than the first item, empty the flask. You now know the first number is 1if the number stays the same you know the 1st number is not 1, nor 2, add a third.if the number increases, congrats you've found your first number, add one of the 2nd ingredient etc. Just make sure you are quick about it or else your station will reset: "Your experiment is lost due to inactivity." Thanks Petra.
