    Can someone post a step by step on the Velvet Rope Barrier?
    I've looked through all the off site places but can't find it anywhere.
    I know we had it on the old boards.
    Skylark, you did that one right?
    Thanks everyone!

    Materials needed for 1 section: 2 crafted golden plate (tinker), 2 crafted jeweled filigree (tinker), 2 mortar & pestles (crafted by tinker or purchased from NPC alchemist), 2 torches (purchased from NPC provisioner), 1 bloodwood bow (regular bow crafted with fletching skill from bloodwood or enhanced from monster loot)

    [​IMG]

    Place first plate and lock down

    Place second plate according to the direction your barrier will run, and lock down
    [​IMG]

    Drop a jeweled filigree on each plate and lock down
    [​IMG]

    Raise both of your jeweled filigrees 12 times
    [​IMG]

    Light a torch by double clicking it, and drop it on a plate. Lock down - repeat for second plate
    [​IMG]

    Raise the torches 5 times- the base of the torch will be just touching the top edge of the plate.

    Drop a bow between the posts. Lock it down.
    [​IMG]

    Lower each jeweled filigree 2 times. Note here, you want to cover most of the top of the flame with the filigree, but not have it poking out the top. When raised to the correct height, you will just see a bit of gold beneath the filigree which looks like a brass connector - perfect for what we want to simulate with our posts. Raise the bow 6 times. It should come just to the top of the torch.

    Drop a mortar and pestle on each plate, and lock down.
    [​IMG]

    Raise the mortar & pestles 1 time. You now have one completed section!

    To construct sections in the other direction, simply turn the bow with the interior decorator tool, and run your sections in the opposite direction.

    An example of the use of the completed curtain.

    For the other direction, you just need to turn the bow with the deco tool after locking it down.

    Here is an example of its use.
