Pottery Mission Research

This is mostly for my own reference, though someone may find this useful.
Expect this section to become longer and harder to read over time. I will likely start cherry-picking and/or collapsing tables as I do more pottery missions.

Table Notes

  • Time is the total amount of time it took to fire the object in the kiln. It's a vague estimate based on my fire alias, which fires a memo 4 minutes after the pottery enters the kiln and proceeds to fire reminders every 30 seconds.
  •  ??? means I forgot to record a value
  • Inconsistent numbers between pottery pieces either means that A) I was wearing black leather gloves during that stage (+2 DEX - 1 STR), B) I TM'ed a skill, C) I increased my skills through self-teaching, or D) I recorded the wrong bonuses
  • The recorded rewards are not the max rewards. Arturos reports getting 160k XP for a teapot mission and 123456 XP / &&&&&&&&&&+24800 A$62 for a different mission and has seen someone gain 190k XP. Arturos' bonuses are 347 shaping, 246 glazing, 378 staining, 363 design, and 247 firing.

General Observations and Things I've Heard from Other Players

  • Each mission has a time limit of 30 minutes. A quick (but not recommended) way to check the time is to log out and log back in. Upon logging back onto the character with the pottery mission, there will be a notification stating how much time is left.
  • The minimum firing time is supposedly 2 min., though I haven't witnessed this (source: Arturos, who heard this from Quow).
  • Firing times differ between batches. In one mission, it took 6 min. to fire 5 saucers. The sixth saucer, which was fired separately, took 4 min. 30 sec. to fire.
  • The quality of the submitted pottery affects the reward. Submitting 5 saucers that got reactions of not bad (3), made an effort (1), and much more what I'm looking for (1) resulted in 74688 XP and A$35, while submitting 5 saucers that got reactions of made an effort (5) resulted in 26560 XP and A$15.
  • Ozzie's response seems to be affected by the quality of the shaping, staining, and glazing. It's possible to have a bad stain and a good shape and glaze and receive a "just acceptable" or "made an effort" response. Failing both the shape and stain, the shape and glaze, etc. or all three will likely result in a "simply unusable" response. Not sure whether the shaping, staining, and glazing hold equal weight in the final evaluation or if one is considered more important than the others.
  • Different pottery missions give different rewards. Submitting 5 saucers that got reactions of made an effort produced 26560 XP and A$15. Submitting 5 plates that got the same reaction resulted in 49792 XP and A$25.
  • 30 minutes is enough time to redo a failed piece (i.e. the order for 5 green saucers and navy blue diamonds and the order for 4 pink cabbage mugs with a white blossom pattern), but it's better to succeed on the first attempt.
  • Arturos recommends molding the pieces before assigning yourself an order to save time. Probably best to communicate your intention to other people in the room before doing this, though.
  • Riverphoenix: the max xp you can get is determined by the type of mould, then it depends on your average quality with the stain / glaze. Crafts.arts.design also impacts the long description for some stains, but not the xp. The pots that are harder to mould are typically harder to glaze, except I remember that plates are relatively harder to glaze than you'd think, for some reason.

Staining Stages
Staining Pattern Number of Stages
Spot 1
Stripe 1
Square 1
Diamond 2
Ring 2
Thorn 2
Cabbage 2
Blossom 3

Cheshire cat 3

These are (roughly) in ascending order by difficulty, except that Spot, Stripe, and Square have similar difficulty, and so do Leaf and Cheshire cat.
