My mage only need one more skill point in order to start transmuting Thorium + Arcane Crystals ==> Arcanite. I found that Arcanite is highly in demand and the only way I know of thus far is by Alchemy. Last night when I was in IF, I saw someone selling an epic weapon (Ardent Custodian) for 40g or 1 Arcanite. So today I'm gonna get that last point so that I can start transmuting. I heard that you can only transmute once every 24-48 hours so if anyone can mine Thorium and have an Arcane Crystal send them to me so I can start transmuting. I 'm gonna try to get my Pally's mining skills up so that he can start mining Thorium but it will be a while since finding Mithril and Truesilver mines are a real pain. Wulf if you know where to find lots of Mithril and Truesilver mines let me know. I only know of Badlands and the occasional ones in STV and Swamp of Sorrows.
