Spell Research

It should be noted that if you wish to forgo having to train up your skill manually, you can go to any GM trainer and pay to have this trained up to a trivial number

FAQ

How do I get started with research at all?

If your character belongs to a researching class (MAG WIZ NEC ENC) you will at first need to buy the specific tome for your class (see below). This Tome acts like a container. All you need to do is put the spell ingredients in there, hit combine and you have a new spell (or failure).

What do I combine ingredients in to create the spell?

Wizards use a Lexicon, Mages use Elemental Grimoire, Enchanters use Tome of Endless Enchantments, and Necromancers use Book of Dark Bindings.

Where can I find all these runes, words, and pages?

It's all random. You must attack critters level 16+ and on occasion they will be carrying your research item. There generally is not a SPECIFIC creature to hunt for a SPECIFIC item. Research items can sometimes also be found on vendors if players have sold them, often in or near the areas where they drop.

(Note: Don't know if this is new or not, but as of 10/12/16, the level 9-12 'A Bandit' in West Karana have been dropping some words, pages and runes for me.)

Is the quill and parchment needed to create a spell?

No! It must NOT be included or the creation will fail. These items are used with the Concordance of Research (practice research)

Can I research any spell at any level?

With limited success - failure rates depend on your Research Spells ability relative to the trivial level (in INT) for the recipe. I would suggest just sticking to your own level or below.

Who uses which ingredients?

Wizards use Runes, Necros use Words, Enchanters use pages from various grimoires, writs or tomes. Mages use a combination of Words and other special items.

Can Casters Research Spells for Other Classes?

Classes cannot research other class spells. If you try to use a research tome from another class (for example, an Enchanter using an Elemental Grimoire), the game will tell you "Your class may not use this tome." when you click Combine.

"What is the skill cap?"

Research is a level restricted skill. As such, your max skill is: (Level - 15) x 5. When you train Research at level 16, it starts your skill at Skill 16, far above the maximum possible by this formula. As such you cannot increase your skill any higher until level 19.

Spell Recipes

For an editable google spreadsheet that you can enter your personal quantities of research components, please see this Google doc spreadsheet, and save it to your google drive. Instructions are listed on the front sheet.

Enchanter Spell Recipes

All components listed are "pages." All spells require 2 parts, either 2 pages or 2 half-pages. The pages marked (Faded) drop as items without numbers and must be combined by themselves in your tome to become pages with legible numbers. Recovering faded pages can fail. To turn a faded page into a normal page, combine it in your Tome by itself.

Cross-Referenced Ingredient List

These are the pages, runes, words, and other components needed for researching level 1-49 spells, with a list of what can be made from each. It is intended to as a guide for researchers who want a quick reference for what items they should save, and for both researchers and non-researchers who want to know the value of the research items they find. This list includes some ingredients that are also available from vendors as well as items that are drops only.

Enchanter Pages

The pages marked (Faded) drop as items without numbers and must be combined by themselves in your tome to become pages with legible numbers. Recovering faded pages can fail.

Practice Runes

Use your Concordance of Research to create Practice Runes, that you can then combine to increase your research skill. Use the following table to determine trivials and components your need.

It is substantially cheaper at lower levels to simply have your class trainer train you in Research than to perform these combines.

Level Name Azia Rune Beza Rune
21 Practice Rune (Complete) Lapis Lazuli, Bat Wing, Bone Chips Turquoise, Fire Beetle Eye, Any Rusty Slashing Weapon(not rusty shortened spear)
41 Apprentice Rune (Complete) Hematite, Bixie Wing, Froglok Eye Cats Eye Agate, Large Snake Rattle, Any Rusty Piercing or Bludgeoning Weapon
62 Training Rune (Complete) Bloodstone, Wasp Wing, Zombie Skin Onyx, Spiderling Silk, Raw Hide Armor - Any Size (Cap, Mask, Gorget, Tunic, Shoulderpads, or Cloak)
95 Journeyman Rune (Complete) Jasper, Pixie Wing, Bat Fur Star Rose Quartz, Burned Out Lightstone, Raw Hide Armor - Any Size (Belt, Sleeves, Wristbands, Gloves, Leggings, or Boots)
122 Study Rune (Complete) Amber, Giant Bat Wing, Giant Scarab Eye Amber, Giant Snake Fang, Ring Mail - Any Size (Coif, Visor, Neckguard, Coat, Mantle, or Cape)
142 Expert Rune (Complete) Jade, Faerie Wing, Fire Drake Scales Jade, Giant Snake Rattle, Ring Mail - Any Size (Skirt or Belt, Sleeves, Braclet, Gloves, Pants, or Boots)

182 Magi Rune (Complete) Topaz, Shark Skin, Brownie Parts Topaz, Giant Toes (Hill, Fire or Frost), Any Fine Steel Piercing or Bludgeoning Weapon

Please note that for each Concordance of Research combine listed above, you need to add a Quill and a Piece of Parchment to create the training rune.

Also note that while the practice rune sides are made in the Concordance of Research, the completed runes are combined in the class specific container.
