Recently did a bunch of alts to Research 300. Thought I would post a guide on a quick and easy, maybe not so cheap route. Research will be used in the new TOV ear.



(Trivial 54)

Vial of Pure water : ( I would make roughly 2000)

To make Vial of Pure Water (Spell Research: Yield 5, trivial 54), Combine the following in a Spell Research Kit, Tome Binding Kit, Prayer Writing Kit, Hybrid Research Kit, Song Writing Kit, Spell Research Table, or Spell Research Table (placeable)
Total $501pp

(Trivial 144)

Parchment Solution
To make Parchment Solution (Spell Research: Yield 1, trivial 144), Combine the following in a Spell Research Kit, Tome Binding Kit, Prayer Writing Kit, Hybrid Research Kit, Song Writing Kit, Spell Research Table, or Spell Research Table (placeable)

Fire Emerald (*) QTY 300 $26,775pp
Gnomish Heat Source (*) QTY 300 $312PP
Vial of Pure Water QTY 300
Aqua Regia (*) QTY 300 $45,807pp

Total $72, 894
Made roughly 150 sold for $13,371
Net loss: $59,523



(Trivial 243)

Runic Parchment Soultion To make Runic Parchment Solution (Spell Research: Yield 1, trivial 243), Combine the following in a Spell Research Kit, Tome Binding Kit, Prayer Writing Kit, Hybrid Research Kit, Song Writing Kit, Spell Research Table, or Spell Research Table (placeable)
Total $332,224 + $501 (Vial’s of Pure Water) = $332,725
Made roughly 700 sold for $233,299 + 250 Vial’s left sold for 75pp = 233,374
Net loss: $99,351
Total Net Loss = $158,874

Your mileage will vary.

Recommended AA:
6/6 Salvage
6/6 New Tanaan Crafting Mastery
This is with 15/23 in Hubrid Research

More to come on 243 to 300! This is far as you can go with Just store bought items.

I have found that the quickest way to max research is with the recipe for Guidestone (Trivial 402)

It'll run you about 40-45,000 for the Stones of marking and you can farm the Ethernere quite easily or /buyer them for around 50pp a piece on my server.

1 Stone of Marking: This item can be Vendor Purchased:
  • Ethernere Tainted West Karana
  • North Karana
1 Ethernere Essence: Dropped/Traded

I like the starting way the OP posted. Cheaper and faster to max your trophy with lower skill items. Plus a vendor route is way more convenient than farming.
