Alter fodder is a colloquial term for items of various rare materials kept by players primarily for use in alterations. Alteration guidelines 40-45 focus on materials and outline the requirement to provide a merchant with alter fodder when making certain modifications to items. Items noted as Rarity 8 ("very rare") or higher always require alter fodder to be provided. This information can be viewed on the Material Rarity and Use Tables. The quantity of alter fodder needed may depend on the particular item being worked on.

Items made of rare materials may be found in the treasure system or rarely purchased in certain shops and kept or traded between players for use as alter fodder. "Pure" alter fodder items, that have no other use except to be provided for alteration, may be purchased at Ebon Gate, however they have been available as prizes from various games in the past. The Antiquarian found at Ebon Gate in Antiquarian Manor, will allow for the conversion of items into pure alter fodder, while the Antiquarian's Apparatus, found at same can be used to store alter fodder efficiently.

Alteration scrolls (Sadie scrolls) are not capable of accepting alter fodder.

The below list is incomplete. Rift Gemstones and Hinterwild Gemstones must be supplied. Please check Alteration guidelines regarding rift gemstones. Any material that has a rarity rating of 7 or higher must be provided.

Fabrics, Leathers & Pelts

Material Name Material Type Alter Fodder Needed? Definition of Item
Aldoran wool Fabric N Wool spun from the sea-horned goat.
Aqilorn Fabric Y Aqilorn is a unique blend of silk and thread-of-vaalorn that is highly prized by the nobility of House Vaalor for its shimmering appearance and supple, yet rigid texture.
Ataela Fabric Y Ataela, or cloudsilk, is a sylvan textile made from raw silk (typically silk from silkworms, but sylvans also enjoy using bee silk and spider silk) and the ultra-fine wool of the cavelta rolton. Next, it is dyed using a wax-resist dyeing application process
Auroralaen Fabric Y Auroralaen is as light as chainsil and as comfortable as silk. Soft and smoothly woven, the fabric is airy and breathable. However, it does not take to the dyeing process at all and instead maintains the pattern and semblance of the skies of Naidem. Indeed, the aurora-kissed fabric can even be different depending on where in Naidem it was produced. If the weaver was from the Winterbriar neighborhoods, then the fabric could have more of the cool cerulean and teal hues, while if they were from the Orchard it could have more fuchsia, violet, or coral hues.
Bresuna Fabric N Lightweight wool
Cameline Fabric N Often called camel hair, cameline is lightweight and typically tends towards beige and tans.
Captiql Fabric N Wool from the long-haired capybaras of Atan Irith. Captiql is a luxuriously soft, light brown wool that dyes well and is sturdy enough for everyday use.
Cavela Pelt N The hide of the cavelta rolton produces cavela, a thin and supple leather popular for clothing and containers.
Cloudsilk Fabric Y See Ataela
Elesine Fabric Y In composition, it is made of sea silk (which is produced from a secretion of the pen shell clam) that can be dyed to any hue, but has a natural dark golden sheen that never fades. The sea silk is then interwoven with hair-thin strands of electrum in a triaxial pattern to create depth and a subtly metallic-sheened fabric.
Flyrsilk Fabric N Soft, nacreous silk that often has foliage-inspired patterns.
Forest silk Fabric Y See Wyrsilk
Fraelhan Fabric N Wool made from the stoutfoot rolton.
Iron boar hide Pelt Y While prized for their meat and the multiple purposes their tusks can be crafted for, the mountain razorback is most often hunted for its hide. Colloquially known as iron boar hide, the thick hide actually offers no more defense than any other leather material, but is often incorporated into giantkin clothing for its capacity to help retain heat in the coldest months and for its appearance of the quills that proliferate along the ridge of the back of the beast. The color of the hide is iron grey, hence the name given to the hide by its wearers and merchants.
Kish'dal hide/leather Pelt N Leather product from the Kish'dal goat.
Kish'enda fur Pelt Y Dhe'nar. Rare fur.
Krinklevelt Fabric N Krinklevelt is a densely woven, almost felt-like material. In its natural state, it is a lustrous ecru with a copper red sheen, and while it takes a dye well, many choose to leave it undyed.
Lotus silk Fabric N Fabric crafted from lotus fibers
Lambilen Fabric N -highly sought after.
Maedatha Fabric N Wool-based fabric made from the maedat goat. The wool is soft.
Mervaer Fabric Y Mervaer is a type of soft, light linen. While most linen wrinkles in the flutter of a wing, mervaer does not, making it an excellent choice for travelers.
Myssamere Fabric N Myssamere is a blend of blackish-brown wool, often collected from the thorny brambles along the coastline and woven to create soft, durable garments.
Naiquard Fabric Y Naiquard has all the luxury and grace of silk jacquard with all the iridescence of pearl organza. Light and silky, it too is patterned in aurora hues, though these are named by type. Naiquard is often heavily embroidered in singular metallic designs, allowing the swirling hues of the fabric to be elegantly enhanced by the glittering threads. Review the source material for the types, which include orchard naiquard, river naiquard, sunrise naiquard, and sunset naiquard.
Naraina Fabric Y The term naraina is only used for lotus silk woven from the saltwater lotus found on the Lotus Sea in Atan Irith, and its exportation has been strictly forbidden.
Nhil'mon skin Pelt Y Dhe'nar. Rare skin from the great hunt.

Orchard naiquard Fabric Y Orchard naiquard has gradients that transition from dark pewter to aubergine to dusky violet to blue-green and finally light pistachio green. See Naiquard.
Oxilen Fabric N Obtained by taking the downy soft underwool of arctic oxen, oxilen in its natural form is fluffy, light, and almost has a lint-like quality to it. Once woven into string, its hue is very dark and added dyes typically produce deep, rich colors but never light ones.
Paeline Fabric N Paeladri goats are very compact and stocky in structure and produce high-quality fibers that can be spun or woven into the fabric known as paeline.
Plumille Fabric N Plumille is a lightweight fabric, and the barbs used in weaving are typically left in their natural color. Crafters who are more familiar with dyeing will often dye the barbs in a range of light to dark hues of a single color, ending in a gradiated effect on the final garment.
Qiviut Fabric Y Wool from the Mhoragian muskox.
Rackhal Fabric N Wool from the rakka rolton. Their wool, also known as rackhal, is spun to create soft, breathable fabrics suitable for the scorching heat and cooler climes (although for the latter, the garments are often layered to retain warmth).
Rakkein Pelt N Leather product from the Rakka rolton

Roltalen Fabric N Obtained from the common rolton, roltalen is versatile and is able to hold color very well.
Rosesilk Fabric Y See Taessaet
Ruhani wool Fabric N Woven into a soft, yet sturdy fabric known as ruhani wool, the wool provides natural protection from the elements and outdoor environment. The strong fibers are dyed and woven into shades and patterns and used in the creation of the traditional elven ruhan.

Rusalkysk Leather Y Rusalkysk is the result of rusalkoren being heated until liquid and then infused into salt water-softened leather. It is suitable for crafting into leather armor.
Rusylka Fabric Y Rusalkan Family: Rusylka is a silk-like cloth also woven from rusalkoren threads but not without any special properties. It is suitable for clothing. It cannot hold a dye, but the beauty of it is in its natural coloring, mist-like swirls of azure across inky blank just like rusalkoren.
Saenira Fabric Y Saenira originates with locally sourced fibers, including bee and cricket silk. It is a naturally pure white silk that is light enough for layers and wraps and manipulations needed for clothing that must take into account wings.
Sailcloth Fabric N Wool from the steelhorn rolton.

Vaslavilen Fabric N Wool from the vaslavia rolton. Their fleece is admired for its luster, silkiness, color, and durability. The Krethuum prefer the natural golds and reds for their own wool clothing and rugs, but the white fleece takes dyes made from the local flora exceptionally well to make a variety of colors used in trade.
Vicuna Fabric N Obtained from alpacas, this wool-like fiber is luxurious and also expensive as very few alpacas can be found outside of a few elven families in the northeast of Elanith.
Wynelen Fabric N Thick, durable, and often described as being difficult to work with, this wool is obtained from mountain goats outside of Temple Wyneb.
Wylten Fabric N Naturally waterproof, this wool is obtained by sheep outside of Temple Wyneb.
Wyrsilk Fabric Y Also known as shadowsilk or forest silk, wyrsilk is a somewhat rare fabric originating with the inhabitants of the Wyrdeep Forest. Its exact composition is unknown and unable to be replicated, but master weavers believe it to be created from special alchemically or magically enhanced preparation that includes fibers from merrywood and wyrwood leaves strengthened with spider silk from a Wyrdeep spider. Wyrsilk looks and feels delicate and soft to the touch, holds a dye well, but will always have a deeply shadowed look to it. Folklore states the shadow comes from the soul of the forest itself, which is why wyrsilk shrouds are used for their dead.
Yierka wool Fabric N See Yierkale
Yierkale Fabric N The kish'dal goat's fur is a mottled grey and white, like marble splattered with ash, and is surprisingly popular in some of the northern regions for the thickness of their wool.

Agita Crytallized sap Y Due to its inability to be reshaped, drilled, pierced, carved, or bored, the agita is typically used for ornamentation by creating a cage of either wire, metal, or stitching. Lattice-stitching with metallic threads has grown in popularity in Atan Irith and is used to bind the material to the cloth as either neckline ornaments or buttons, while single pieces are usually showcased upon the toes of slippers or yatanes. Smaller specimens have been fashioned into a variety of jewelry. Earbobs are fused to metal and pendants are encased in cages.

Fortunately, Charl's-scales are quite common in this area, and it serves as a nice export for jewelry aficionados as well.
