Welcome to Circle of Nine masters a Everquest II Crafting community.
The idea behind Circle of Nine masters is the belief "Work smarter not harder." I have played EQ1, EQ2, EQ Online Adventures, and DAOC. For some twisted reason in all these games my goal was to master all Tradeskills. Currently EQ2 is the only game I have not met this goal but I'm well on my way. This site is meant to be a information gathering depository. The better informed the better the crafter. Not all information on this site is crafting related but it is the main focus. So sit back look around and perhaps we all can be better informed. :) Any questions, comments, suggestions, or additions are welcome.
Game Updates October 17,2007
The Fear Gate in the Feerrott has opened! The Shard of Fear, a fraction of the Plane of Fear, is now accessible by Norrathian mortals. Only seasoned adventurers traveling in groups should dare look upon this realm of terror and dread.
