I noticed a statement in the item list entry for Ball Mill that one needs special training to make Black powder. Certainly seems to be the case, as I've had no training and cannot get my mill to do anything other than go "ding ding". Which is fun and all, but not nearly as much fun as blowing up stuff or flying to outer space. I assume this training can be gotten at the Bombadiers Den? --Scary Mike 13:44, Oct 17 (GMT)
Oddly enough the ball mill isn't the key item; try using the saltpetre, sulphur, or charcoal. And you probably need the training first. PotatoEngineer 01:01, 19 October 2006 (BST)
Ayup. Once you've completed the Cavern/Bomb Squad quest it's boom city. To the moon! --Scary Mike 14:30, Oct 30 (GMT)
