Welcome back to Crafting 101! Now that you have completed the first crafting quest, we are ready to move on to Krokotopia! In order to unlock Krokotopia, you must complete the story line in Wizard City and beat Lord Nightshade. Once you have unlocked Krokotopia, we are ready to begin!
STEP 1 – WUL’YAHM
Once you walk into Krokotopia and make your way into the Oasis, you will see two bridges to your left beside the pond. Take the 2nd one over to Wul’Yahm, he should have a golden question mark above his head. Talk to him to receive the next crafting quest “Ring in the New”.
STEP 2 – RING IN THE NEW
Just like in Wizard City, you are not given the recipe for the item you must create. The Rings of Insight recipe will cost you 315 gold in Wul’Yahm’s shop. Once you have the recipe, you will notice it will cost you a few new items. The cost of one ring will be 1 Citrine, 6 Simple Vials, 4 Parchment, 6 Stone Blocks. You will also need 2 of these so in total you will need 2 Citrine, 12 Simple Vials, 8 Parchment, 12 Stone Blocks.
STEP 3 – FINDING THE REAGENTS
As usual, the gem reagents such as Citrine must be purchased. In the Bazaar they will generally be more expensive, so I recommend buying them from reagent vendors. Behind Wul’Yahm there is a Desert Golem named Al Saf’Wan. He sells Citrine for 15 gold a piece. You can find Citrines also by gardening Ivy Leagues, Snap Dragons, and Ultra Dandelions. You will only need 2 Citrines for this quest.
SIMPLE VIALS –
Al Saf’wan sells Simple Vials for 40 gold each, you will need 12 so it will be 480 Gold. You can also get vials by gardening Orange Dandelions.
Parchment is a reagent that can be found in the Spiral. It looks like a stack of paper on the ground. If you are having trouble finding all 8 of the parchment you need, you can buy it at the Bazaar when it’s available. It is often found in Krokotopia, so you should be able to find it as you are questing here. It can also be harvested from Fickle Pickles and Orange Dandelions. Here are some of the places I have found reliable for parchment in Krokotopia;
STONE BLOCK –
This reagent can be found in Krokotopia, and many worlds of the Spiral. The places shown above for finding Parchment are also great places to find Stone Blocks. You can buy them at the Bazaar or Crowns Shop. Stone Block can be harvested from Burning Snap Dragons, Dandelions, Fickle Pickles, Snap Dragons, and Tiger Lilies. Diego the Duelmaster also sells stone block for 50 tickets. You will need 12 stone block for this quest.
STEP 4 – COMPLETING RING IN THE NEW
With all the materials in hand, you can go back to your crafting table to create the Rings of Insight. Once you have crafted one of them you need to wait 10 minutes for members and 20 for non-members to craft the second ring. After the 10-20 minute cool down, you will be able to craft the next Ring and head back to Krokotopia to turn the quest in. Once you have spoken to Wul’Yahm you will be awarded experience, 855 gold, and your next quest – “A Set of Steak Knives”.
STEP 5 – A SET OF STEAK KNIVES
The last two items you will need to create are Poniards of Gallantry. The recipe should be purchased from Wul’Yahm for 261 gold. The recipe for these will require 6 Jade, 3 Simple Vials, 5 Deep Mushroom, and 6 Stone Blocks per. So in total you will need to get 12 Jades, 6 Simple Vials, 10 Deep Mushrooms, and 12 Stone Blocks.
STEP 6 – GETTING THE REAGENTS
We have already discussed how to get Simple Vials and Stone Blocks for the Rings of Insight above, so I will be discussing how to get the Jades and the Deep Mushrooms.
Jade is a gem reagent you can buy from Al Saf’wan for 15 gold a piece. You will need 12 so you will have to spend 180 gold. The Gardening sources for Jade are Burning Snap Dragons, Snap Dragons, Ivy Leagues, and Ultra Dandelions.
DEEP MUSHROOM –
Deep Mushrooms are commonly found around the Spiral. They can be found in the grassy areas of Wizard City, especially in Olde Town and the Shopping Area. In Krokotopia I have found many of these in the Tomb of Storms along the walkways. If you do not want to look for Deep Mushrooms, you can buy them at the Bazaar. Boom Shrooms, Burning Snap Dragons, Snap Dragons, Dandelions, Deadly Fly Traps, Fickle Pickles, and Honey Bee Plants all have a chance of dropping this reagent. You will need 10 of these to complete this quest.
STEP 7 – COMPLETING THE QUEST
Now you have all the reagents for the Poniards of Gallantry and you can return to your house to create them. Just like before, you have a cooldown time after you create the first Poniard. Once you have finished crafting them both, you can return to Wul’Yahm and show him your work. He will reward you with experience, gold, and your Apprentice Crafter Badge! You will also get to keep the two rings that sell for about 15 Gold and give you a +3% Power Pip chance, and the poniards that sell for 52 gold and give you a 3% incoming health bonus. Congratulations on getting your next crafting badge!
