Tailoring

Flag tailoring.gif

Ever have one of those mornings where you just couldn’t bear to put on the same tunic yet again? With skill in Tailoring, you can make clothing of all styles, colors and patterns, and show off your taste in fashion!

While many items created by Tailors are of Cloth, as your skill improves you may learn special Tailoring Recipes and create armor out of exotic forms of Leather or even Bones.

Sadly, the "dressing up" side of Ultima Online is somewhat neglected as many players simply opt to wear Robes over their armor. Nevertheless, with a bit of imagination and a Dying Tub at hand, some fairly impressive costumes can be designed.

There is a special collection of Bulk Order Deeds available for Tailors to fill out. Returning these provides specially colored cloth and other items as rewards. For the Tailor in training, this extra cloth can be used to fill yet more BODs, extending the amount of time before you need to go and collect more resources to work with - For advanced players, Power Scrolls and Runic Sewing Kits may be earnt.

Experienced Tailors can create Arcane Clothing which stores charges of magic power, allowing the wearer to cast spells without reagents.

Training

Here's a general list of what to make, but you could start your character with 50 tailoring skill - Save some time and gold. You'll need a Sewing Kit to work with. Also keep a pair of Scissors on hand, or perhaps a Salvage Bag - These can be used to recycle many items back into usable resources.

Alternative Items to Make

  • 65 - 72 Kasa 10 cloth each, faster gains and less cloth than Robes at this point
  • 90 - 115 Elven Shirt (Brown) 10 cloth each, faster gains than Oil Cloths from 90 - 110 but uses more cloth
  • 105 - 110 Gargish Leather Chests Just bite the bullet here and go buy or gather between 10k -20k in regular leather, much faster gains.
  • 110 - 117 Gargish Cloth Kilt 6 cloth each (can also take to 120)
  • 117 - 120 Gargish Cloth Arms 8 cloth each

Note that of the armor categories, items in the Leather and Cloth sections have a hidden Mage Armor property (allowing you to actively Meditate while wearing them).
