1-243 Research Guide

 


Overview

Research is a pretty wonky Tradeskill on TLP’s. 243 is going to be the max you can get Research for a while on a new TLP until you can create PoP spells, which takes place 3 expansions after PoP. For the most part Research is only useful in Classic, and here’s why:

This generally is referring to Researchable spells Kunark+. If you know of any that are an exception to this feel free to let me know in Discord. Classic spells you can still research in Classic.

You can find a list of the Classic Researchable spells >>> HERE <<<.

**Once Binding Powder starts to drop in Secrets of Faydwer you’ll have another path to continue Research as well.**

Research Leveling Guide

Each class arch-type uses its own combine box for research combines. Beastlords seem to be able to use two. They are:

Hybrid Research Kit: PAL RNG SHD BST
Prayer Writing Kit:
CLR DRU SHM BST
Song Writing Kit:
BRD
