Everyone knows how to make HQ (9 gemstone + 5 flame stone + construction cost = HQ gemstone)
Let's try to make it fast and in a lot of quantity
Ability to count up to 20
Keyboard with NumPad (with number 3 besides Enter key)
We should already have a 4 bag inventory(80 available inventory slots) (if not, buy inventory expansion scroll from Alice [Besides Tasartia])
We will be making HQ in multiples of 5 slots (1 slot = 100 items)
For that, there are a few key positions of the inventory bag that we must remember (Shown in Images)
*Note: 45th slot = 5th slot in Bag 3, 50th slot = 10th slot in Bag 3,...
We will be working only in bag 3, so we don't need to change bags (and waste time)
We will be using every available inventory slot, so make sure you do not have anything in your bags.
The key to speed lies in how we buy our items (gemstones and flame stones).
We open Alice's store, go to the third bag (Bag with gemstones), and select the gemstone which we wish to use to make HQ.
*Note: We do not drag the gemstones, just select.
We click on Buy at the bottom of Alice's store page, then press 3 on the NumPad 3 times (use middle finger) and then Enter (use Index finger). [This way we buy 333 stones, but the game only accepts values upto 100, so it changes to 100)
Then we move the cursor to Okay and click there.
*Tip: 800x600 resolution works best as the Buy and Okay button are less seperated (Any lower resolution, and the construction doesn't work)
As soon as we click on Okay, we click on Buy, and repeat the process
The same process will be repeated for Flame Stones from Tasartia
Now, we buy 45 slots of the gemstone required (5th slot of bag 3), then Close (X) Alice's store, open up Tasartia's, go to bag 2 and buy 5 slots of Flame stone.
*Note: We do not need to change the bag, we know we have 15 slots available on bag 3 and 20 slots in bag 4, so we fill bag 3 upto it's 20 slot, and count 10 more slots as we buy to complete the 25 slots we need to make 5 slots of HQ without changing the bag to confirm.
Now, we close Tasartia's store, open construction page, drag any one of the gemstone slots in our bag 3 of gemstones to construction, insert the value (*Tip: use 333 again) and construct 1 slot of HQ. Repeat 5 times to make 5 slots.
Now, we have 80-5=75 slots available in our inventory as we made 5 slots on HQ
Hence, this time when we buy 45 slots of gemstone, we will buy the gemstone till the 50th inventory slot (10th slot of bag 3), so we have 45 slots of gemstones.
Similarly, for buying Flame stone, instead of counting till 10, we count till 15 (10 slot on bag 3, 15 slot in bag 4) to buy the required 25 slots of flame stones.
Now, we have 80-5-5=70 slots available in our inventory as we made 5+5=10 slots of HQ
Hence, this time when we buy 45 slots of gemstone, we will buy the gemstone till the 55th inventory slot (15th slot of bag 3), so we have 45 slots of gemstones.
Similarly, for buying Flame stone, instead of counting till 15, we count till 20 (5 slot in bag 3, 20 slot in bag 4) to buy the required 25 slots of flame stones.
Now, we have 80-5-5-5=65 slots available in our inventory as we made 5+5+5=15 slots of HQ
Now arises the problem, as we have required 70 slots (45 for gemstones + 25 for flame stones) to make 5 slots of HQ, but we only have 65 slots available.
Hence, we improvise.
We have to open either Alice's store or Tasartia's store twice (to compensate the missing slots after construction of HQ)
Here, I use 45 slots to buy gemstones. This time, we buy the gemstones till 60th inventory slot (last slot of bag 3).
For flame stones, I buy the remaining 20 slots.
Now, I close the store, and construct 4 slots of HQ, with 9 slot of gemstone remaining in the bag.
Here, I quickly close the construction menu, open Tasartia's store and buy 5 flame stone slots (*Note, you will not be able to see as they will be inserted in the 1-2 bag, while we will be at bag 3), and construct the remaining 5 slots of HQ.
Now, we have 20 slots of HQ, with 60 spare slots of inventory space.
We buy 45 slots of gemstones (till 5th slot of bag 4).
*Note: Do not change the bag, just count 5 after completing bag 3)
Then we buy 15 slots of Flame Stones, make 3 slots of HQ, buy 10 slots of Flame stones, construct the remaining 2 slots of HQ.
We proceed similarly, until we have a total of 30 slots of HQ.
At this point, it's best to sell (if you are making for somebody else) or store the 30 slots, as for making 35 slots, you will be required to open someone's store 3 times instead of 2, which is an improvise not worth the time it takes.
Hence, we will have 30 slots of HQ without going to warehouse.
With practice, we will be able to do this task in about 15-18 minutes (that's almost 2 slots of HQ every minute)
Use Construction, Trade skill on skill tab.
Press escape when closing the construction menu
Click close (X) instead of pressing escape with changing stores (it's faster for me this way)
Buy a Town Portal Scroll after completing the required order (or 30, slots of HQ)
