Got 2 of these as a drop

Was out killing fomors in the Sacriarium and got two of these and a few ballon cloths while searching for our keys for 4-3. Very nice:) make some gil, kill some mobs, get some good exp (lvl capped at 50, and we were exp chaining IT mobs:P). Took a while to get our keys and I didn't have the stupid Genki 1 completed when I went, so I lost about 2k exp due to capped level...:( I knew I should have gotten it done earlier...

Anyways, great area for exp parties >50. Since it is lvl capped, a party of +/-5 can get decent exp and chain well... Too bad more ppl don't do that now that they fixed the EXP chains...

Yup... dang went to the wrong ingot...

You're thinking of Shakudo Ingots, not Paktong Ingots.

Well, has anyone found what you can use these for, other than gobbie bag quests? Most of the items for the other gobbiebags i've seen, are usable in other synths too. So is this item is useless, other than to get more space?
Maybe if we wait long enough, he'll tell us about how he walked barefoot uphill through snow both ways in Uleregand and defeated the evil Snoll Tzar with nothing but a stack of pebbles. Men were men back then. Mithra were men, too, but they don't talk about that.

Mellowy is awesome, now.
I'm sorry. My hoovercraft is full of Summoners. As soon as I claim a thread, they just flood out and cover the whole place. Slippery suckers, those Summoners.
Seems to be 16+ skill required

I got my smithing skill from 16-17 doing a few of these. I don't recall getting the recipe before 16, though.

It appears that each of the 4 new items for GB5 (Paktong Ingot, Rhodenite, Bugard Leather, and Moblinweave) are all very close to level 20 synths.
Paktong, what else...

So, this is only for use in the Gobbiebag V?
I have a hard time believing that it is not included in other recipes. Stacks of these on Phoenix Server are going for 70-80k.

Out of 3 tries, at lvl 40 smithing, I had one Failed Synthesis.

I just did this as a lvl 40 smither and got the "HQ" item. ( you can tell by the way the finished product comes out) and it was still the Paktong Ingot. So confirmed NO HQ synthises.

"A new quest to increase the size of a player's gobbiebag has been implemented. A player must have completed the "Gobbiebag IV" quest in order for the new quest to be triggered."

So there are at least 5 gobbiebag quests now.

As for the smithing 0 bit.... 0 means UNKNOWN LEVEL therefore no one knows the cap or those that do have not posted it yet.

what level can you actually synth this one of these though?

If it helps any, I got this recipie from the guy who gives you the low level smithing recipies in Bastok.

I was Smith lv26 when he gave me this.
