Sneezing powder is an item created by pures skilled in the General Alchemy subset of Alchemy. The vials uses the Thrown Weapons skill to activate.

If an attack with a vial is successful, the vial may do minimal damage, but also lowers the target's Attack Strength for the duration of the coughing fit caused by the powder. The amount of the reduction is dependent on the strength of the powder

The most difficult ingredient is the essence of fire, which can be found in the treasure system on fire guardians, fire ogres, fire cats, fire mages and various other corporeal fire elemental creatures.
