    So I have been working the Elf Quests for all my tinkering gains and have yet to see a rare recipe. I have been working underground from 30 - I am at 97.4 now and have had my fill of Elven Quivers, Quivers of Blight, Fire, Lightning, Ice at whatever else I have gotten
    Is this totally random or do the recipes get better as I gain? Should I countinue with the Trinket Weavers or do others give tinker recipes?

    Any of the quests that require items crafted through tinkering can give you the tinkering recipes (the trinket weavers and the wine tenders, who want keg taps). It is purely random to get a recipe, it is not dependant on your skill or the number you have completed.

    Here is a list of the tinkering quests, by NPC:
    Heartwood Crafting Quests - Tinker

    The recipes don't get better as you gain, it's a random drop. I have received more rare tinker recipes from treasure chests than tinker quests.

    Easiest and cheapest tinkering quest is the one for tinker tools. 10*2 ingots for one quest. (Or you could buy them from npcs.) If you are going for gains you could do spyglasses at your level.
    If you keep getting recipes for quivers, you are doing something wrong. Quivers are considered tailoring recipes if i remember right.

    Silverbird is correct - you'll never get the tinkering recipes from quests that give quiver recipes.

    The quests that give tinker recipes give the following recipes (a catch-all for oddball recipes)-

    1. Alchemy Recipes (darkglow, parasitic, invisibility)
    2. Glassblowing Recipe (Hovering Wisp)
    3. Inscription Recipe (Scrapper's Compendium)*
    4. Rune Carving Knife (A smith recipe - someone in testing decided that knife meant "knife" and not one of the ML Elf weapons, and put it in the wrong category - and they left it that way)
    5. Tinker Recipes (Resilient Bracer, Essence of Battle, Pendant of the Magi)*.

    *These are the four recipes that are worth keeping, and selling if you get extras.
