    is there a path to buying most of the lower skill points? really not looking forward to camping for sulfur

    you can buy Vial of Muriatic Acid, Aqua fortis, aqua regia from the research vendors and then do all the solutions to 243 - you don't have to camp Sulfur (but LDONs are as good as I see for consistent drops of sulfur)
    Aanuvane Bristlecone - Druid - Povar via Quellious via Rodcet Nife
    AKA Muertenie, Melodee, Orelinde, Nounie, Gnomess, Cininea Ashryn, Mairede or a host of additional alts. Maybe also be found on Rabon, Kynsh or Atracker.

      Oh and don't forget you can do sunshard powder, sunshard pebbles and sunshard ore as a skill up path too - if that's more appealing.

      Dull Energeiac rods to 153, shining to 239 and glowing to 316

      Also, binding powders are viable even if you're not an int caster, just need to find an int caster to make the summoned essences for you, each powder has a chance to give you two attempts.

        This is essentially the path I went through. Free to 54 in Crescent Reach, 10 minute beginner trophy quest, and then spent about 500k to grind to 243.

        Now what? Where's the push to 300? Am I turning my parchment solution into parchments (needing uncommon-rare mob drops) and then making useless spells out of it? That sounds horrendous, hours/days/weeks of camping for a few hundred "Grimy Fine Runic Parchment" to drop, and then even more money bring dropped in.

          TBH - I've skilled multiple characters to 300 in research (mage, druid, necro, ranger, rogue, bard) and the easiest by far are binding powders. They are no harder to get ahold of than all the unrefined papers/parchments/etc. If you can mass farm in a lower zone that has lots of caster mobs in it - you'll get both. Then you just need an int caster to summon the essences for you. But one powder gets you two combines - one to make the base parchment and one to make the scroll.

          I think North Ro LDONs are a good source for intricate binding powders.

          If plat isn't an issue and you can get a good amount of Sunshard Ore, you can do Glowing Energeiac Rods
