Reagents

The core of all magic-using skills and professions, Reagents are the basic, consumable ingredients for all spell casting. Used in all principals of magic for Alchemy, Inscription, Magery, Mysticism and Necromancy. Reagents are also used by other crafting professions, but always to instill the relative magical property of the item.

Most Reagents can be acquired by simply running through the forests of Sosaria for they spawn throughout the world. Others are a bit harder to come by as you must kill a creature to acquire them. Then some are utterly rare, having only spawned for a short period of time then disappearing. Finally, other reagents need to be gathered by utilizing certain skills. Most useful reagents can be purchased from NPC Vendors who will increase their inventory, as well as their price, as demand rises.

Reagents are classified by their specific uses.

The Old Necromancy system was never implemented in the game, however some of the reagents were fed into the world. They spawned for a short time in obscure places or as drops on certain monsters. Bones were eventually implemented for Tailoring and Daemon Bone became a required item for the Doom Gauntlet. The rest of these reagents are considered Rare and are highly desirable as decorative items for wizards and students of the arcane.

Misc.

Blackrock deserves a special place all unto itself as it is one of the most mysterious items in the game. Originally presented as a highly powerful and terribly volatile substance, it caused madness in those that collected pieces from Mining or by random drop from killing creatures during any of the several story arcs when largely available. Now, small bits of Blackrock are dug up by Miners, and have no real value. Visit the Blackrock History page for more information.
