Glassblowing

Glassblowing is the skill that allows for creation of vials. Vials are required by alchemists to create potions and dyes, but don’t have any direct use by themseleves; they are simply containers. “Better” vials can hold more fluid than lesser vials but other than that do not appear to have any special properties.

The glassblowing skill has pottery as a prerequisite but since pottery does not have any purpose in game, it just serves to take up some extra primary points and reading time since there’s no way to skill it up manually. Glassblowing is as straightforward as any crafting skills go, there is no variation or customization in the vials at all. Simply select the vial you want, pop in some materials and blammo, out pops the vial.

To start glassblowing, you will need an appliance with a stong heat such as a furnace or kiln. target the appliance and hit your glassblowing hotkey to bring up the UI. Depending on your skill level, you may have a few or many vials to choose from. You will only get skill increases from vials which are ‘difficult’ for you to make, which will be the larger ones. All vial recipes are shown below along with some relevent information about each.
