Raising Jewelcrafting in Everquest

Trade skills in Everquest follow the same basic pattern. The ingredients must be combined in a container for the appropriate trade skill. Jewelcrafting makes it easier because the jeweler’s kit required can be carried in the player’s inventory slots. This feature means that a player does not have to level jewelcrafting in a city.

The pattern is to raise jewelcrafting a jewel + enchanted metal + (optional) other ingredients for higher level recipes. Silver jewelry is the easiest to produce with the jewelcrafting skill and the difficulty for the jewelry increase to electrum, gold, and then platinum. According to Allakhazam’s Everquest section, platinum jewelry is never trivial.

Getting to a 170 or Higher Skill in Jewelcrafting

Making Magical Jewelry with Jewelcrafting

The jewelcrafting items that tend to be in highest demand amongst placers are items that boost resistances, but when trying to raise this skill in Everquest, getting the metals enchanted is usually a wasted effort. Demand for the items that can be produced at the lowest skill levels is low and enchanting does not raise the value of the item when sold back to a vendor. An Everquest character should expect to spend several thousand platinum if he intends to raise this skill to its maximum level.
