I use to harvest cinnabar when I have few harvest events because it's boring, slow. It can be stored in the normal storage.

When I want to make DE or Spirit ess, do I make 100 mercury - then 100 ess out of them.

So I only use the normal storage.

Yeah, if I made Mercury, I would do it that way too.

That is how I do it too, no runs to hazmatsto for me ... just use the mercury after making it. And I can't think of a better way either, just works super well for me too.

Go to KF with a rost + quartz + cactus - and make DE on the spawn...

 

Not the safest but hey - it's a game!

To make mercury is the best way to get alc xp. and harvesting cinnabar is good harv xp.

Cactus are 4 emu, quartz 2 emu, food are needed too - many alcers have low emu, so they need to go to storage a lot of times. :cry:

i dont really like alching mercury because of broken alembics, so i buy merc from our bot which a few KF newbs sometimes sell to. but even so i keep my use of mercury to a minimum - i buy spirit ess from the magic shop and try never to use death ess.

my main use of mercury is for alchemy potions :cry:

I'm only collecting Mercury, not making or using it :)

Run through KF, laugh at the pros who want to kill me :( and look for some weak ants :P

And then I give them away, almost everytime for free :)

Here is my opinion on this matter.

 

1. Getting mercury free is great and all you have to do is a lot of walking back and forth to hazard storge.

 

2. I have gained over 4K mercury in hazard storage by doing this and haven't died once in KF.

 

3. I only grab one load of mercury from haz sto and bring it to WS storage, bag it and make some essences.

 

 

I also think that if getting mercury is not something your interested in doing then just either. . .

 

A. Buy the "mercury essences" from someone else or. . .

 

B. Buy the "mercury essences" from the magic shops (Not sure if they actually sell them but don't see why they wouldn't).

 

If your anti then find a friend who isnt to help you. :o

I tend to use cinnabar for the hourly harvest experience, best thing for levelling if you're too low to get dung but want to be able to do so. I then just store the cinnabar (almost 24k in sto right now) and occasionally I extract the merc into a bag of 100/200 and mix into DE or occasionally SE as noted by Zamirah.
