Okay, maybe not gate, but close enough. This is for us non-melee-ers who need to have an emergency get-the-heck-out-of-dodge potion handy. It's actually part of the Coldain Prayer Shawl quests, but according to others can be done separately. I'll try to verify this part of the quest soon (that this is the right starting point for this potion, etc). It is LORE and NO-DROP, one charge.

Requires pottery. Trivial at 122.

Combine in a Pottery Wheel: 1 Small Brick Of Velium + 3 Crystalline Silk + 2 Glass Shard = Unfired Velium Vial. (trivial = 122)

Combine in a Kiln: Unfired Velium Vial + High Quality Firing Sheet = Velium Vial. (trivial 15)

Go to Frundle Frenkler in Thurgadin. She is located at approximately -350, 500. To get to her from the bank, head like you are going to the Temple of Lore. As you go down the ramp towards the creepy statue, on the left are three buildings. Frundle is in the middle building. She will not respond to a Hail, but when you ask her about velium vapors she gives you the Velium Purifier that you need. 
Combine in Velium Purifier: 2 Small Pieces of Velium + Velium Vial = Vial of Velium Vapors. (never fails)

It can be done separately. The difference is you use the potion yourself rather give it to a npc you spawn in EW. Anyone with the skill can also do the turn in for people who do not have the skill themselves and MQ that part for shawl 4.

There are also shammy made pots, and anyone without another option should really invest in one. Yes, they can be pricey at about 1800-2200 for a a 10 charge potion.  But when you compare it to the alternatives or time of running back, it is usually worth it. On raids it is a must.

There is also the "worker's sledgemallet" in Overthere. You need to do some factioning to get it, and it can be hairy porting into an area where they might not like you enough even afterwards. But it does the trick too. Dark elves and chanters have the easiest time on this. Why might a chanter want it, backup port in case they want to bind somewhere distant.

Great, thanks for the info! Yes, those potions are definitely expensive, but I know there have definitely been times when they would have been an enormous help.

I'll have to look up the quest for the OT sledgemallet. I'm an agnostic bard with the Dark Elf mask of deception. I know Ogres in Ogguk (Grobb? Always get it confused) are indifferent to me with the mask. Is that good enough to get the sledgemallet?

Also, what's the best way to use it? I know it's a proc that causes you to relocate to OT... are you supposed to duel someone (without either dying) so you can make it proc? Does it proc on every hit or does it take awhile? If you're alone should you just risk hitting stuff until it procs?

Can't wait to level my shammy some more so I can make potions with her! Will be nice to have a potion-maker in guild... or do we already?

Best way to see how close your faction is is to walk into OT, get the illusion on, play whatever songs make you generally likable and target the nearest mobs inside the city to see. Bear in mind there are some very tough mobs around still even to 65s and the guards are fast with wide agro.  If they don't hate you and/or you can otherwise get near enough to the npc to charm or raise faction directly on that mob, then you should be able to turn in a jade and get it.  If you cant yet charm and all the voodoo isn't enough, you may need to kill Sarnaks. But far fewer than others.

In terms of use, you have to proc it and I've seen it take up to minutes. Most weapons proc in the 2-3 times a minute range even with highest dex. Now if your faction is not great in OT when you gate in you have to get the hell out of dodge fast. you get agro near instantly from skeletons. It wouldn't be so bad except getting say invis at that rate and strolling out is out of the question. When I can on Provo, I zone in horsed to speed things up. TBH, I try and use it only as last resort but a bard shouldn't have problems outrunning.

With my human bard who worships the plane of mischieve god I didn't have to turn in any braids or use an illusion. I just used one of his songs and that was enough

The worker's sledge is a nice item.  You gate into the wrecked ship in OT and usually there is one lone skell thumping on your head.  I find getting out of the ship the hardest part lol.  There is also a talisman neck item that is a quest.  Requires some drops in PON and POD and then Essences for charging.  Check it out.
Portaparty, Smeg, Redraw, Wontza....way too many Toons!
