ALCHEMY SEAL (verb)

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

The verb Alchemy Seal is only available to people training in the three Alchemy skills. It is always the last step in a recipe, sort of like saying "Hey, I'm done! Where's my potion!"

This one verb input kicks back several messages. The RTs overlap, so essentially it's 25 seconds for this verb.

This action takes 16 mana total; 7 for the initial message and 3 for each subsequent one. Please note that if you run out of mana before the action is complete you will get nerve damage. If you do it twice and get the sporadic convulsions, you will abort this action and the seal, as well as the entire recipe, will fail.
