Wine Glass

From A Wiki in the Desert

Wine Glasses are used to drink wine. The wine glasses need to be placed on a Ceremonial Tasting Table in order for them to be used.

Wine glasses are made in a Glory Hole.


Shinjin's Guide

(This was copied from the Tale 2 wiki.)

Here is a guide to making wine glasses using the Glory Hole. As of this writing I'm able to consistently make 7k quality glasses with a decent shot at 8k.

I like to use the F5 camera and position myself a couple feet inside the structure with the camera positiond on the other side so that I can see a couple of feet outside the structure as well. This gives a good view of the grey front edge of the Glory Hole which is the hotspot used to heat the glass as well as most of the inside where you will perform the final shaping.

When performing the initial heating, it's important to keep the glass spinning at a fairly constant rate. I've found that about two turns per heat tick (~1 sec) seems to work fairly well.

First you want to form the base. Move the rod in 1 click and let it heat up to yellow. Blow once and move it in one more click. When it gets yellow, blow twice. That's it for the base.

Immediately push the rod in so that the other end (what will become the mouth of the glass) is just inside the grey hotspot. Heat it up yellow and then proceed to pull the rod out and heat up 4 more sections of the rod to yellow. Move the rod back in a bit to keep the center 3 sections yellow and let the section on either side fade more to red (the mouth end will likely have already done so). Then push the rod all the way into the structure and blow 5 times.

That's it for blowing. You now rotate the glass so that anything that has sagged is now above the axis of rotation. Let it sit there until gravity pulls it closer to where it needs to be. During this stage I find it handy to check the quality frequently as I rotate it or let sag. Often you will see the quality go up as the piece droops closer to the goal and then go down as it droops past. Just rotate it above again and that should help. When you are satisfied with the quality (or time has run out), unload your beautiful new wine glass and prepare to experience faster Oenology point gain.

Don't be afraid to unload the piece before the full 60 second work time has expired. I've seen the quality of pieces drop dramatically.

Note: Wineglasses (likely all glassblowing products) cannot be named if over 9500 quality, unlike blacksmithing.

Redshift's Guide

This should produce a 7–8.5k quality wine glass. Set your heater to pinpoint. Use a METRONOME to rotate! Searching 'metronome' on google will let you use google's simple metronome. Set it to about 145 bpm (may need to adjust a bit based on lag).

  • Part 1: To begin, insert the rod 2 clicks inside (press a twice), begin rotating by pressing either n or m in rhythm with the metronome. When heated to yellow, blow twice. Then, insert the rod 1 more click inside. When heated to yellow (should take 2 heating 'ticks') blow once. This makes the base of the wine glass. Move to part 2 immediately.
  • Part 2: Insert the rod inside quickly (tap a repeatedly) until you are at a point where the 'drinking end' of the wine glass is heating. Let this tip of the rod heat to yellow. Then move the rod in one tap at a time, heating the new segment to yellow before continuing. If the drinking tip of the rod is segment "1", you should proceed heating to yellow until you are on segment "7". Do not dawdle, when one segment glows yellow press 'a' and move to the next segment.
  • Part 3: After segment "7" is yellow, pull the rod out with 's' one step at a time, reheating each segment from 6 to 2 briefly (this will be much shorter in time that the time you spent inserting the rod). Do NOT reheat the "drinking tip" ie segment "1". After segment 2 reheats, push in stopping for 1 tick each on segments 3, 4, and 5. Then, press the rod completely into the glory hole (tap 'a' very fast until the rod is completely at the back).
  • Part 4: Blow 7 times. Now, you can break rotating the rod with the metronome, and rotate the rod such that it is above the axis of rotation, letting gravity slowly drop the rod downwards. at each tick, press 'q' to view your quality. Be ready to unload with 'u' immediately when the quality is good!
