Tinkering stands as a cornerstone of creativity within Ultima Online, serving as the linchpin for all manner of crafting endeavors. Its capacity to fashion tools that complement other trades renders it an ideal starting point for budding craftsmen. Consider a miner, for instance, who employs Tinkering to fashion additional shovels during their excavation. These implements often require only modest levels of skill to craft, ensuring that not every artisan needs to attain grand mastery to reap the benefits – although exceptionally crafted tools do boast superior durability.

Typically, Tinkers ply their trade with ingots, although they occasionally fashion items from wood as well. Tinkers possess the capability to craft magical jewelry, some of which are esteemed as artifacts. Aspiring Tinkers are advised to hone their craft within the confines of Heartwood, where the requisite recipes can be acquired in advance.

With sufficient expertise, practitioners of Tinkering may even conjure obedient Golems to serve them in battle. While these constructs are seldom deployed in actual combat scenarios, their formidable resistance to poison renders them invaluable assets for combat training.

Tinkering Tools

Tinker’s tools are available in-game in two forms, but both operate the same way and utilize the same gump.
