I just had a question about a spell research tutorial so I thought I’d share what I do when I want to level up a new toons research skill.

  1. 0 to 20 - Use up your skill points that you get every level. It’s just easier to click the button 20 times. And let’s be honest…how much do you use those skill points anyway?
  2. 21 to?54 – Make Vials of Pure Water. They are simple to make and all the components can be found at the small bank in PoK. Combine 4 Water Flasks, 5 Empty Vials and a Gnomish Heat Source in a Spell Research Kit.
  3. 55 to 83 - This is where I?always got stuck. Then I found out that the binding powder combines give frequent skillups per attempt. Up to skill 152 I’ve gotten 2 skillups per 3 combines (or better). First, make this spell:
    • Focus Makeshift Spellcaster’s Essence. Combine:?Ink Additive of the Nameless,?Quill of the Coercer,?Conjuring Thickener,?Ink of Druzzil Ro,?Cleaned Hide (Combine Celestial Solvent, Raw Hide and?Hide Solution)?in a Spell Research Kit. The Raw Hide drops from mobs but the other components are store bought in PoK by the small bank.
    • Buy in the bazzar or loot a bunch of Makeshift Binding Powder off of caster mobs. These drop off of level specific caster mobs. For Makeshift Binding Powder the mobs are around level 13 to 50.
    • Combine Makeshift Binding Powder, Makeshift Binding Solution, Makeshift Spellcaster’s Empowering Essence, Piece of Parchment in?a Spell Research Kit for the skillup points. The empowering essence is summoned when you cast the spell you made previously.
  4. 84 to 152 - This skill?range is similar to the last range. Except you move up to Modest Binding Powder etc.
    • Make the spell: Focus Modest Spellcaster’s Essence (Combine: Ink Additive of the Nameless, Quill of the Coercer, Conjuring Thickener, Ink of Druzzil Ro and Fine Runic HIde (Combine Raw Fine Runic Hide and Fine Runic Hide Solution) in a Spell Research Kit.
    • Buy in the bazzar or loot a bunch of Modest Binding Powder off of caster mobs. These drop off of caster mobs level 37 to 40.
    • Combine Modest Binding Powder, Modest Binding Solution, Modest Spellcaster’s Empowering Essence, Piece of Parchment in a Spell Research Kit for the skillup points. The empowering essence is summoned when you cast the spell you made previously.

The best resource for any tradeskill related information is EQ Traders Corner. You can do searches for any spells you want to combine by name and it will show you all of the ingrediants that you will need and what type of container. I’ll add skill suggestions from 153 to 300 to this list later.

Unfortunately I’m not too familiar with necro armor or even the latest expansion. But maybe someone passing by will be able to answer?
