    Equip a geerlok or the trophy with a 5% or greater mod.

    The 220 requirement is modified skill only.

    The suggestion is to take a break from 210-212 and do the ether swatches to save you some entrails.

    Good luck finding that path. There is nothing that doesnt require a lot of farming for tailoring.

      Thank you for the clarification, Aldier. I'm having the most trouble reaching 300 with tailoring by far. =p

        This guide is pretty well setup as a general guide. However, depending on your character(s) and your gear/level/aa. There may be another route that is better for you. The other suggestion would be to check the Quick Trivial List for whichever skill and find non-trivial combines and look into what they take and then go after what will work best for you.

        I am using the cultural templates to try and finish off my tailoring. I know others are making symbols to finish tailoring. And I have one guildie, not sure why, but is insisting on farming Holgresh, ad infinium, to max tailoring.

          Tailoring trivial question

          188 - 210 Epicthieck's Power Belt then Small Epicthieck's Power Belt or try DON symbols
          211 - 212 Ethereal Silk Swatch - Remember to use Geerlok Sewing Contraption
          213 - 252 Epicthieck's Power Belt then Small Epicthieck's Power Belt
          Okay, I'm confused. Can anyone clarify the trivial for the Epicthieck's Power Belts?

            The reason it's split is because the swatches (which are very cheap and easy) cannot be attempted until 220 modified skill...then they trivial at 212.

            So, whenever you reach 220 modified skill, switch to swatches (this is usually at 210...unless you have higher than a 5% mod.)

              Any particular reason Batwing Crunchies (#2127, trivial at 46) and Fish Fillet (#2192 trivial at 82) don't seem to be making the list. They are just as easy to make as the fish rolls and have lower trivials which means more success which means quicker skill ups (especially when baking has a higher difficulty setting - at least until you can get wis/int up to 615).

                You can do the freebie task to get to 54 in either Abysmal Sea or Crescent Reach and that gets you past the Batwing Crunchies.

                You can do either, but I think Fish Rolls are just as easy and at those trivial levels, you have fairly high skill up rates to begin with that it does not matter as much.

                Again, this is just a guide. This is not the set in stone you must do this to skill up. At those trivials, pretty much ANY combine will be cheap and easy to do. You have the choice to follow this guide or go your own path. Fish rolls are cheap and easy to make and get you up to 135. Fetid Essence is cheap and easy to make for brewing and gets you up to 122. Sure there are other recipes you could do as an intermediate step to those after the freebie tasks, but this is just a guide to simply plot a skill up path to 300 for each skill.

                    These are 2 of the other threads in this section. The first is a fairly detailed write up of the process including making templates and armor and symbols. The second is a link to the thread with KryosKrane's chart with trivials of drops and some other information including what is used for what armor and the vendor items needed as well.

                    Templates require no quests. You just need the recipe which you can experiment to learn (just like all the other recipes) or can see the vendor in PoK, CR, AS... to purchase the book(s) and learn each level of recipes at once. Any race can make any type of template. The templates are the skill up path.

                      I'm lost on one thing then - if the templates require no quests, but need a template pattern to make, then where do you get the template pattern?

                      Here's what I figured out from the supplied link....

                      In order to make the templates you will need:
                      1-3 pieces of ore/hide or 2-6 piece of silk depending on slot. tehse are those mob drops that have been clogging our inventories lately
                      1 fuel (check your recipe. these vary in price by tier)
                      1 chemical type thing (again, check your recipe. these are around 1 gold always)
                      1 template pattern for the specific armor you want to make (also cheap)
                      tailors will also need a storebought needle (not the smithed one)
                      I was along the lines of thinking you had to quest for a book of template patterns, but I have not tried this yet. I think the more I research all of this the more confused I get.

                          ...

                          I was along the lines of thinking you had to quest for a book of template patterns, but I have not tried this yet. I think the more I research all of this the more confused I get.
                          Templates need 1 dropped item (silk, animal pelt, or ore) in varying quantity based on the slot the template is for. Bracers need less material than tunics. Also, silk need 2 pieces to replace the "combine to 2 silks to make a swatch" step that used to exist in tailoring.

                          The coal for smithing and filament for tailoring are vendor sold. The type is different for each tier of templates.

                          The template pattern is vendor sold. The pattern is the same for all tiers of templates.

                          The chemical is vendor sold. The chemical is the same for all tiers of templates.

                          The vendor sold components are all from the same vendor. There are several locations you can get them, check the forums a bunch of other threads detail merchants. (PoK has both smithing and tailoring as a fallback) The coal and filaments are the only vendor sold item that is of any significant platinum cost and then it is only really at the higher tiers. (I think Tier 11 is 54pp each, Tier 13 is a little over 100pp each)

                          Tailoring uses a simple sewing needle while smithing uses a smithy hammer. These tools are returned on success or fail.

                            The same NPCs who sell the fuel and treatments also sell the templates.

                                From the JC list, "96 - 98 Electrum Rose Necklace" seems to now be called "Electrum Star Amulet". although the link there is still valid.
