    This is true, except for that ratio only works for two out of the three types of branches, because in order to achieve that ratio, you have to make the bow after you make the staff. The Supple Recurve (straight treant branch) is only 288 trivial. You have to make the compound to get over 300. I can't see torturing yourself by laminating AND farming battle cams at the same time /shudder.

    To me, it is much simpler to just farm two more branches, than to mess with laminating, at least until you get to 298. Laminating requires more farming (horse hooves for one) and many more subcombines. Not to mention you have to get the laminating device, rollers and blade before you can start to laminate. I suppose that is a matter of opinion, but the non laminated compounds to get you the last two points just seem like a better deal to me.

      2x of the laminated recurve bows trivial over 300, you do not need cams for them at all. (you can, but theyre unnessecary)

      The horse hoofs were about the same to farm up as the broken bits, but each horse hoof makes ten (10) laminate glue. So, a lot less farming for them.

      In general using laminates is less farming for branches and subcomponents, and more combines from it.

      Once you get set up for making the laminated recurve bows... it goes fast and is easier.

        anyway we can get this guide stickied? I find it much more useful than the 5.0 (although i still use 5.0 for some parts of certain skills).

              Although I can now update the database and News Page, alas I cannot sticky this thread.

              I'll have to stop by this post every month or so to ***bump***.

                Tailoring

                Fantastic pelts can be used to make hilt wraps that trivial at 282. I am in a limbo state at 260 with quite a bit of high level pelts/silks but there was no point in using them because the combines were too high to evolve my trophy. I am glad that I was able to use some immaculate pelts to raise my skills a bit. I wish there was a similar path with silks, because as it stands I have stacks of high level mats that really don't make much sense for me to use until my skill is high enough to cause some trophy xp.

                  After a raw skill of 250, the within 100 of raw skill no longer applies to evolving the trophy. Any combine trivial 350 or higher is rounded down to 350 for evolving the trophy. Therefore you can use anything you want after that point and it will offer both skill ups and evolve the trophy.

                    Not to mention that the use of Fantastic anything for Sub-300 combines isn't economically sound at this point...

                          • rubicite blacksmithing from 196-210

                            Rubicite ore is great for blacksmithing rubicite templates from 196-210.

                            It does go from 1 to 2 to 3 pieces of ore so watch out.
                            Rubicite can be gotten cheaply in the bazaar if you watch for it, say 2-10 pp.
                            Everything else can be purchased and you only lose a few plat in the merchant resale.

                            • Is there a guide for people on progression who can't do the abysmal quests for 0-54?

                              I saw a few did but not all ;(

                              • For which Tradeskill in particular, Gomer? Most tradeskills can use a simple combine to get them from 0 to 54 (Fish Rolls for example when doing baking) that will get them to where they want to be in no time.
