Once you greet kerian, you listen to the quest information and as always, check your quest journal. You have a choice – not much of one, but nevertheless – do you do the dims first, or the bronze? I choose to do the dims first. You should already know how to get to them and make them, of course, so I will forebear to repost that, in the interest of interest, as well as the bronze. Your quest journal and chat logs will update with each step, as usual.
When you return to kerian, the dragon acknowledges your work and give you the technique formula for a socket, instructing you to return with a socketed chest scale. Scribe the formula as normal. Now, If you don’t have them in your vault (which I didn’t), you need to head to the sandstone field by pratt’s pond and make the needed sandstone bricks for the chest scale. Once you have enough, head back to the dragon crafter’s cave and use the scale forge to make the scale. Don’t forget to add the socket technique before you make it!
Take a couple steps back and talk to kerian. The dragon crafter advises you to go speak with avariatus, who might have something to put in the socket! Before you go, you might want to equip your new scale. Simply choose it in your inventory, right click, choose the equip option, and there you go! Your equipment screen will show you its current location. Feel free to add your old scale to your hoard, if you wish, or place it in your vault. Or give it to a newbie!
