I started with 50 Tinkering.

Here is what I made:

50-92.5 : Lockpicks
92.5 - GM : Heating Stands

I'm guessing it took me around 20K ingots to gm Tinkering, give or take 5k.

The last little bit uses quite a bit when you switch over to heating stands.

Can create GM strength locks, for lockpicking skill gaining purposes. Also potion kegs, although that's a half and half with carpentry.

Unless I am wrong, I believe you need tinkering to make those adorable little poison and explode traps in boxes :P

I can't tell if that's sarcasm or not...

But yes we do.

I haven't actually followed through and made any, but I did accidentally click into the traps menu a week or two ago on my 80-something tinkerer.

I never used them back in the day. I always read stories about how people would place some trash items in a box, trap it, and throw it out in a heavily traveled area. Then just wait for the explosion, heh.

Do they really insta kill?

I have some very fond memories of tinker explosion boxes. Back in the day, you would set them outside houses. We used this trick that got us a few houses to loot.

We would kill one of us in front of a big house. We would put all kinds of loot on it. (Regs, gold, bags of potions) and would put a box on the corpse to. When someone opened the box in front of their house, they died, and we got the key. This method worked particular well in dungeons. We would just plant a dead boy by monsters and people would think monsters killed us. Soon as they opened the box and died, we would replace the old loot in their corpse and wait for the next passer-by :)

It used to work because back in the day not everyone had 100 str. So yes, one box could kill you. I can't remember the exact damage but it was pretty substantial. I am thinking around 80 dmg for the highest trap? Maybe even more.

a grandmaster tinker was able to make a trap strong enough to kill any character.. the only exception was if you had chugged a gstr and had 120 hit points.. don't quote me but i believe the trap did exactly 100 damage (can still be alive with 0 hit points)
