The Right Tool for the Job

The Right Tool for the Job is a new player quest found in Springs N Things in New Haven and begins with Amelia Youngstone the Tinkering Instructor.


Increase Tinkering to 50


Create new scissors and hammers while inside Amelia's workshop. Try making scissors up to 45 skill, then switch to making hammers until 50 skill.


Hello! I guess you're here to learn something about Tinkering, eh? You've come to the right place, as Tinkering is what I've dedicated my life to.

You'll need two thing to get started: a supply of ingots and the right tools for the job. You can either buy ingots from the market, or go mine them yourself. As for tools, you can try making your own set of Tinker's Tools, or if you'd prefer to buy them, I have some for sale.

Working here in my shop will let me give you pointers as you go, so you'll be able to learn faster than anywhere else. Start off making scissors until you reach 45 tinkering skill, then switch to hammers until you've achieved 50. Once you've done that, come talk to me and I'll give you something for your hard work.


You've done it! Look at our brand new Apprentice Tinker! You've still got quite a lot to learn if you want to be a Grandmaster Tinker, but I believe you can do it! Just keep in mind that if you're tinkering just to practice and improve your skill, make items that are moderately difficult (60-80% success chance), and try to stick to ones that use less ingots.

Come here, my brand new Apprentice Tinker, I want to give you something special. I created this just for you, so I hope you like it. It's a set of Tinker's Tools that contains a bit of magic. These tools have more charges than any Tinker's Tools a Tinker can make. You can even use them to make a normal set of tools, so that way you won't ever find yourself stuck somewhere with no tools!
