i like to jump around from shard to shard and make toons. at any rate, last few months i have found myself making a bunch of faction tinkers and regular mules. so i found i was having to GM tinkering 2-3 times a month. ive got it down to a science now. the old way i was doing it was the old staple. clockworks, gears to 60 60-90 lockpicks. 90-GM heating stands. that was just under 30k in iron and give or take 14 hours. the new way ive been doing it. around 6 hours and well under 10k in iron. (9.5 on average) clockworks, gears to 60 60-90 lockpicks. 90-GM i go into the twisted weld and go into disco then go back to making lockpicks. i take 3k in iron with me. the amount of iron and time saved doing it this way makes it far worth the very rare risk of dieing in there to a changling. thought id pass this along.
