Studio Mastery with Giovanni the Renaissance Man and the Artsy Faire Parties.

Join in the Renaissance - Giovanni Quest
A visitor has tunneled his way to your kingdom and with him: a new set of Quests, Mastery Skills in the Studio and a love for Artsy Fartsy Faire Parties.  Giovanni and his quest line, "The Renaissance Man", offer the new ability to Master Crafting in the Studio.  He also brings with him new recipes and a new Crafting Support Building.  Continue Reading to learn about all the Materials you will need and the items you will be crafting.

Give the man a Snack:
The first two quest have you helping Giovanni tunnel out of the ground into your Kingdom.  On his arrival, he ensures you have a Studio to begin work and asks for a snack.
You will need to craft 2 Ice Creams and Have 3 Brain Food [which can be posted to your Feeds].
For Ice Cream, you will need plenty of Ice Chunks [request from friends] and some Milk and Honey.

In this quest you will also need to craft 3 more Elixirs and Use 3 HyperCrafts [which costs 30 Reputation in Market > Consumables].

TIP: If you can, Start crafting the Workbench in the Workshop before you reach this quest since it takes 24 hours, 3 Wood Planks, and Two Bags of Nails to craft it.
A Request for Lightning in a Jar can be posted to your wall; and Bellows can be requested from friends; and you will also want to have plenty of Sand.

So stock up on the following items:

Complete your Mastery:
In the next quest, you complete your mastery of the Green Fairy Elixir by crafting a total of 10 in the Studio [6 made previously plus 4 more you craft for this quest].
Make sure you have 6 Sheet Music.

The following quest is rather simple.  You only need to banish 2 Gloom Thieves, Collect taxes 12 times, and have 3 Collection Boxes.
TIP: For the Collection Boxes, you can either craft them in the Work Shop at the cost of 3 hours, 1 Alchemist Powder, 1 Wood Planks and 1 Shell OR simply purchase one in the Market > Consumables for 10 Reputation.

The succeeding quest is also quite easy - only requiring you to have 6 Thick Books [request by posting to your wall], Spend 80000 Coins, and Water 7 Saplings. Easy.

Crafting the Infinity Fish Bowl:
Infinity Fish Bowl Materials
Infinity Fish BowlHere is where things get hairy.  In the next to last quest, you have to craft an Infinity Fish Bowl.  This item will take 6 hours of crafting with the following items:  2 Crafted Glass, 2 Pails of Water, 1 Angle Finder, and 5 Fish Food.

Pails of Water can be collected from fishing and Fish Food can be requested from friends.

The Crafted Glass can now be collected from the Glass Blower, but you may not want to wait the 36 hours it takes to collect it.  Your next best option may be to craft the Glass in the Studio. It will require 2.5 hours, 5 Sand, and 2 Wood Logs.

To craft the Angle Finder, you are required to have 2 Iron Bars, 1 Fasteners, 15 Alchemist Powders and a Workshop to craft this item for 44 hours!

Lets break the Angle Finder down to the basic Material and Crafting Check list:
Make a total of 3 Iron Bars which cost 3 Wood Logs, 2 Iron Ores, and 9 hours each in a Work Shop to craft.  And the Fasteners will cost 1 Iron Bar, 10 Reputation and 14 hours in the Studio to craft.

You should be crafting Iron Bars, the Fasteners, and the Angle Finder at any moment when you have a free crafting building before you reach this quest so you can complete it with quickness.

Be sure to stock up on Pails of Water, and Iron Ore:

Iron Ore

Finishing it all up:

In the final quest, you will need to reach Mastery Level 1 for 3 more Studio Items, have 2 Studios, and Spend 42 Reputation.  In order to prepare for this last quest, you should look for the 3 items with the least amount of crafting time and the fewest amount left to craft.  You may want to start early and leave 3 items at 9 - that way you will only need to craft 1 each to finish.

  1. I think that you are doing a good job and I can't imagine the amount of spoiled, rude, and demanding remarks from people that want everything now for nothing! I just wanted to recognize you for allowing us to have more fun with our game and not charging us for anything and for allowing this to to be a safe straight forward site. I really do appreciate what you do, and when I get paid, I'll be helping you out a little :)
