ALCHEMY CHANT (verb)

The official GemStone IV encyclopedia.
Jump to: navigation, search

ALCHEMY CHANT is a verb which allows a character to infuse a spell into solution. This results in the concoction containing this spell. An alchemist can only chant a spell that they know, limiting the creation of certain items to certain professions. It is performed by entering ALCHEMY CHANT and then the spell number or name of the spell. It is taught at the beginning of Potions or Trinkets.

Using this verb takes the mana required by the spell being chanted.

Messaging

Success:

R>alchemy chant 112
You extend your hands over the cast iron cauldron and softly begin the incantation of Water Walking, altering the phrasing, tone, and inflection slightly as you focus the power of the words on the solution within. Flickering wisps of essence coalesce over the solution as your chant continues, swirling in rhythm with the sound of your voice, and lazily drift down to vanish into the solution.

Failure:

>alchemy chant 401
You extend your hands over the cast iron cauldron and softly begin the incantation of Elemental Defense I, altering the phrasing, tone, and inflection slightly as you focus the power of the words on the solution within. Flickering wisps of essence coalesce over the solution, but recoil at the last moment.

Please note the word ALCHEMY before CHANT. If you just plain old CHANT, you'll get the following message. Which is wrong. If you see it, you've done it wrong. Consider yourself troubleshot.

K>chant 112
You close your eyes and chant quietly under your breath.
