|Special Properties||Unique flare, Ghezresh's Intimidation.|
|Primary Color||onyx at first glance, but actually indigo on closer inspection.|
Found only near the most active and violent of undersea volcanos, ghezyte is a substance of extreme rarity as it is only laid bare once the originating eruption site rises above the water's surface. Within the earthen crucible, liquefied shale and glass, sea salt, and minerals combine in the creation of the metal. As it is formed by rapidly cooling magma flows, its base composition is much like obsidian in hardness and application, capable of fracturing into shards possessing and keeping a supremely sharp edge.
In appearance, the metal is glossy and smooth, and while it at first glance appears as black as any onyx, a closer inspection finds that it is actually a deep indigo with an iridescence that creates visual depth. Smoke grey striations are typical and, along with its unique composition, create within the material an impression of a fluid substance, the movement like that of an eel languidly stirring in a night black sea. The only known location to harvest ghezyte is Caligos Isle, and like some of its inhabitants, it holds a dark mystique. It is believed the mists shrouding the isle have infected the metal and that those who carry it will eventually fall prey to its sibilant whispers.
Behind the Scenes
Ghezyte carries a natural enchantment of +25 and has a unique flare inherent to this mysterious metal. Ghezyte's inherent flare yields an "intimidation" effect rather than raw damage, which reduces the enemy's Target Defense by 15 points and Defensive strength by 25 points; the effect lasts for 15 seconds. The item properties of this metal leave categories B, C, and D open for additional enhancements.
