ALCHEMY DISTILL allows a character to distill a liquid in an alembic, removing impurities from it to result in a different liquid. It is taught at rank 15 of General Alchemy. This process must be done in an alchemy workshop.

Using this verb takes 10 mana and roughly 40 seconds.

Using this verb is one of the two DISTILL tasks. When you're supposed to just use the verb, and not do the long drawn out distillation, the task reads, "The Training Administrator told you to practice distilling for reagents."

Distilling for reagents:

Originally Distilled Use
clear water pure water Refreshing beverage
Hazy green liquid essence Essence of soul Major spirit-well potion
Hazy grey liquid essence Essence of mind Greater wisdom potion
Hazy brown liquid essence Essence of body Greater strength crystal
