In prep for when it unlocks, I wanted to add a few quick notes here.

Check your email if you've not already done the Myrist unlock via adventuring! The new mail from Ghida contains an item to unlock Myrist access for level 110 crafters. After you've unlocked it, Myrist is available from any wizard spire.

Quest recipes for this line do NOT autoscribe, so make sure your bags are set up in a way that makes it easy to find and scribe any "Recipe Scroll: ___" that drop into your bags.

Do NOT try to mass produce any of these quest combines! There is more than one quest in this series that requires you craft 5 of an item, but they have to be made 1 at a time. (Don't freak out, these combines are normal-length combines, not the several-minute ones from the PoM line. Theoretically, you shouldn't need any progress potions, etc.)

You'll need some resources for the first couple quests, before you are sent out the first time to harvest. "Oliver" at the entrance to Myrist (East side of the zone, first floor), has all the common and rare harvests on him, as well as free fuel, so you can snag stuff there as a beta timesaver.

Unless I miscounted, there are 24 quests in this line.

Rewards are not yet tied to the crafting line (other than status for each one)

The quests are now live. You can find Ghida in Myrist.

Can't find her? Here's a Myrist cheat sheet for you: https://forums.daybreakgames.com/eq2/index.php?threads/crafters-guide-to-myrist.586766/

I initially sent this list directly in, but I wanted folks to see some of the things I found after the TS line went live today, so folks know workarounds (where needed)

Level 110 crafters who are not also level 110 adventurers cannot access the overland zones of Earth, Fire, Wind or Disease. This will be fixed. In the meantime, however, if you REALLY can't wait for the fix to go in before you test the line, beta buff your adventuring to level 110 to get past the requirement

[feedback] Rockin' n Knockin' - make a few more "flowers" and add some effect to make it easier to see them from a distance? This would make it easier for squishier crafters who are mob-dodging while looking for short rendering distance nodes

[weird bug] In Preparation for Anything - if you craft the Protective Coating at the Work Bench in Myrist, just for the time you are crafting the coating (ONLY while crafting), you can see the recipe scroll for the Myrist Trunk glowing on the ground next to the bookcase beside you. As soon as you finish the combine, it disappears again

[oddness] Erecting the Monument. The first time you make the Monument Repair Kit (to repair the monument), it tells you that you've discovered it ... everyone gets to discover it, that is. Every time a new character makes that Monument Repair Kit, they get told they've discovered it.

[bug] Custodial Refurbishment - obtain the recipe scroll: divine antibiotic potion and the blessed runestone. Then zone without scribing it, and your bag 1 and all the contents get dumped into overflow to end up in bag 2 while an invisible Lore recipe scroll hides in bag slot one. (Same bug, different day! BigGrin) Workaround until this is fixed: craft the potion, delete any extra copies of the recipe that ended up in your bags, finish that quest, and your bags can be rearranged again.

[minor bug] The Reach of Ivy - you can get all three broken pottery shard updates on the same broken pot if you click 3 times very quickly before the shards poof

[query] The Reach of Ivy - I didn't check earlier ones, but since it said "obtain" strangler root instead of "harvest", and I was able to pull roots from the depot for it. Thank you if that was intentional BigGrin

[minor bug] The Reach of Ivy - "Craft the Pottery". The first combine of "box of newly formed pottery" counts for 2/3, so you only need to make 2 combines instead of three. You end up with only two of the boxes in inventory from the 2 combines, but it counts for all 3 quest updates.

Back to the Library, Shhhh! "Return to Myrist and seek out Cookie" Cookie does not have any quest book over his head.

I went to see if the beta tradeskill testing reward, Kristoph, was available to be claimed on live, and found I had "1 remaining" when I should have had 2 on this account already (about to finish a third on this account, and have done 1 on the other account as well). Is this intended or should it be 1 per completion, just like past betas?

These refer to the beginning of the quest line:
Weirdness: You craft something with the new harvests prior to being instructed to harvest them.
Related weirdness: Craft this, go harvest, craft this, than go back and harvest more of what you were previously harvesting is a bit silly, and annoying. Particularly when I had a bunch of stuff already in my bag from previously harvesting. (I think these are mostly the making the pieces for the chest and the protection stuff for the books)
Notion of a potion: conversation says something to the effect of I'll make the potion for you then meet you in doomfire. Actual quest doesn't care about making the potion and just tells you to go to doomfire.

Sorry this isn't formatted better, it didn't occur to me to post it till several steps later.

I did this quest today and used track harvestables to find the bag quite quickly. Hope you manage to get yours

Quest: The Scrivener's Tale: Rockin' n Knockin'
Step: Collect pollen from the flowers withing the forest

Issue:The respawn rate of the pollen in the flowers seems to be 1-2 minutes.
Given the small number of flowers and the large amount of aggro in the area, please consider lowering the respawn time to make it less time consuming and painful for lower level adventurers.

-----

Quest: The Scrivener's Tale: Rockin' n Knockin'
Step: Coat your gear with the pollen

Issue: Lack of item clickie in the quest helper
Since this is a clickie we have to use multiple times, Please consider adding it as something we can click from the quest helper without having to find the items in our inventory and manually use them

Quest: The Scrivener's Tale: Followup Friendships:
Step: ???

Issue: The quest helper has 8 lines of ???
Please add 'catalog creatures' to the quest helper ahead of the question marks. list of ??? is almost the same as nothing...
Please also consider putting the new ability, Vegarlson the Earthen Badlands: Catalogue Creature, as ability up as 'quest clickly' in the quest helper.
With hotbar space at a premium, I'm sure I won't be the only person who didn't have a free hotbar space and, therefore, didn't realize I had a new ability and that the old catalogue creature ability wouldn't work.

Quest: The Scrivener's Tale: A Crafter's Plea
Step: Follow the footsteps mentioned in the story

Issue: You have to talk to Recipes for Adventure AGAIN to get the recipe scroll. It would make more sense for him to give characters the recipe as part of the previous step.

Issue: As mentioned by others, the recipe, Offering to Xegony, does not recognize Golden Fleck. This makes progress impossible.

When I pinged Gninja about more craftng stations, a lot of the reason why there aren't more stations where we feel it would be a logical/useful spot is that they tend to cause lag concerns. Portable stations, AA-summoned stations and/or crafting houses help a lot on this line, though, which is one of the reasons I have a very messy not-finished crafting house dropped into medium homes for use during the line. Smile

(If anyone actually uses it and hears any muffled screams, just ignore them. There are about a dozen tradeskill apprentices and their gardens stuffed in the house vault because the copy severed them from their owners.) Eek

If you put 5 pts into them it's instant recast.

I am not sure if I should qualify this as a "bug", however, it seems to be an oversight. In Pollination Perfection, the second step is the first recipe we do in the Vegarlson, "Earthen Balm" calls for a dozen fish... i have flown around the zone twice, and have not see an single fish I can harvest. seems impractical to have to go to another zone to pick up a few fish..

You've probably done this already, open up journal it will give you an icon/image of the possible updates needed. I didn't bugthe ??? because it seemed like that was a deliberate choice.

Quest : A Crafter's Plea

Recipe is not recognizing the Golden Flecks used in the craft. Have tried different ways to get them, Oliver, harvesting, broker. None are recognized.

Did the quest without issues yesterday.

I realize that.. that's why I asked for the information in the quest helper. It's in the full journal, but that doesn't make the quest helper bit any more useful. I'm trying to provide quality of life suggestions as well as bugs.

The bag can be in one of several spots in the gourd-like nests of the wasps. Have your Track Harvestables ability filtered for "Bag" (It is "a strange bag" or something similiar) and fly around the wasp areas.

Also wanted to add that The Scrivener`s Tale: A Crafters`Plea is not showing the Golden Flecks in the recipe. I have both harvested and bought. Tried placing them in the broker, but no joy.
