ALCHEMY REFRACT is a verb used in some advanced alchemy recipes rank 45 and above. Recipes using the refract process will specify sunlight or moonlight and thus may only be used at their respective times. Daylight occurs from "early morning" through "late afternoon" according to TIME (between approximately 6 am EST and 6 pm EST), and moonlight is visible from "evening twilight" through "after midnight". This process must be done in an alchemy workshop.

Recipes will also specify the type of lens in one of the following forms (cost):

  • Amethyst (12,000)
  • Diamond (35,000)
  • Emerald (30,000)
  • Ruby (30,000)
  • Sapphire (22,500)
  • Shadowglass (25,000, 5 uses)

Lenses vary in number of uses.
