The Legend of Ykesha expansion introduced a set of research recipes that created swatches that were used in tailoring robes. While the tailored armor is no longer worth making, the swatches can still be used as an inexpensive way to practice your research skill up to skill level 152.

The recipes use the old research spell components which are still faily common drops off creatures in the older zones, and can frequently be found on vendors after other players have sold them. Simply combine one of the components in a Spell Research Kit along with a Quill and a Piece of Parchment. For example, combining a Rune of Tempest with a Quill and a Piece of Parchment results in a Tempest Runed Swatch. The swatches can be sold to a vendor.
