Re: Jewel Crafting/Alchemy: Elixir of ogre's strength

No problem, thks for the assist.
I just spent 4 to 5 hours killing bloodfist ogres in duskwood.
I got plenty of green items to drop, even one blue. But my fingers are sore and it's late. So maybe I'll try again tomorrow.
I have three miners in my stable. 2 are high enough that they can fly and mining mithril ore/stones isn't a problem.

Is a person a failure for doing nothing? Or is he a failure for trying, and not succeeding at what he is attempting to do? What did you fail at today?.

The ogres in Duskwood are at the low end of the level range that can drop the recipe (~22-27). Mobs in Northern STV or farming Blackfathom Deeps might give you a better shot if you're dead set on the recipe.

Alternatively, you might see if anyone else in your guild has the recipe.

Looking at the big picture, you are probably paying MORE for the 'less expensive' route than you would using the more expensive items. The 4-5 hours of game play didn't advance your professions at all. In that same time you could have farmed gold on your highest level toon and bought all the mats you needed to advance past this roadblock.
