One of the oldest and most coveted abilities of a wizard is the Enchant Item spell. Successfully enchanting a weapon, shield, armor, or runestaff will add a permanent bonus to that item's performance in combat. This bonus adds directly to a character's offensive or defensive combat values, beyond that which is achievable by any other means.

Items may be enchanted more than once, increasing the overall bonus with each successive enchantment. Each level of enchantment bestows the item with a +5 bonus from its previous state, to a maximum of +50. Certain materials may possess natural bonuses or natural negatives.


Can either be store bought or produced through the Alchemy guild skill (the recipes are wizard only). There is no advantage to one source over the other.
Generally, a weapon, shield, armor, or runestaff with no other special properties (excepting forging bonuses).
A workshop is not required, but highly recommended for successful enchantments, particularly at higher enchantment levels or for lower level wizards. There is one located in each of the Wizard Guilds, though workshops are also found all over Elanthia. Many are hidden throughout the lands, most Great Houses boast a workshop, and a few exceedingly lucky wizards own their own workshop. Wizards who are not testing their limits, however, often do just fine at a regular node.
See Success Factors section for bonus and penalty information.

Selecting an Item to Enchant

It is imperative that one is familiar with the item they intend to enchant. Certain materials may resist this process, or restrict it altogether. Many materials possess their own natural bonuses or negatives, which factor into the level of enchantment intended to be bestowed upon it. Properties of items such as flaring, weighting or padding will prevent them from being enchanted, as well. Some items may not take enchants, seemingly for no reason whatsoever. The best way to obtain detailed information about an item is to have a bard loresing to it. Other sources, such as the AI crystal can also provide valuable information about items. Wizards may cast Elemental Detection (405) upon items which have been previously tempered to determine their current level of enchantment.

  • In general, any weapon, shield, armor, or runestaff can be enchanted as long as its other properties do not preclude the possibility.

Not Enchantable:

  • Flaring weapons of any type.
  • Damage or crit weighted weapons of any type.
  • Damage or crit padded armors.
  • Claidhmores, due to their built-in crit weighting.
  • Items with a current enchantment of +46 or higher.
  • "Defender" weapons (which provide a DS bonus as well as an AS bonus).


  • Weapons with forging bonuses, but no other special abilities.
  • Voln armor is enchantable and does not increase enchant difficulty.
  • Items with enhancive properties or sanctified require special Pre-tempering potions to be enchanted. The difficulty of enchanting enhancive items varies depending on the type and intensity of the enhancive.
  • Items which are blessable are generally also enchantable. However, they cannot be enchanted while blessed.
  • Ensorcelled items are enchantable but there is an increased difficulty factor.
  • There are extremely rare defensive bonus clothing and jewelry items which can store an enchantment.
  • The only sure way to determine whether or not an item will accept an enchantment, is to try to pour a tempering potion on it. (However, Bless Item (304) comes very close.)
  • Each wizard may only have one Major Enchant project in progress at a given time. This includes any further enchantment upon an item which is already +16 or higher.

Aaaaaactually, resistant armor is more difficult to enchant than equivalent armor sans resistances. I don't think the permanence of the resistance matters, either.

You can pretty much assume that any additional attributes that don't outright prevent enchanting increase the difficulty of enchanting. (The only exception I can think of would be spikes.)

Return to the top of this page.

The Enchanting Process

Enchanting is a simple two-step process. First, the object is tempered with a potion. The temper takes a certain amount of time to cure, and once complete, one then casts the Enchant Item spell upon the object. This "pour/cast" cycle is then repeated once for each level of enchantment being bestowed upon the item. For example, taking an item from 0x to 1x would require one pour and then one cast. Likewise, taking an item from 2x to 3x would require three pours and three casts total. During the intermediary processes, the item cannot be used for its usual function. Wielding a weapon, shield, or runestaff, or being struck while wearing armor whose enchantment has not yet been completed will cause the destruction of that item.

Tempering the Item

Tempering is the act of using an enchanting potion to prepare an object to store the enchantment you wish to instill within. The act itself is quite simple, though making certain you have checked the status of each contributing factor and conditioned the variables in your favor can prove quite challenging.

  • POUR POTION ON MY {ITEM} : initiates the tempering process
  • Each pour will use precisely one dose of potion, regardless of the size or type of the item.
  • There is a 20 second roundtime for each pour.
  • An item will un-temper and revert back to its original state if left untouched for about one month or so. The entire process will have to be repeated from the first temper if this were to occur.

Certain items, such as sanctified gear and enhancive items, require Pre-tempering potions prior to the tempering potion to take each step of the enchant.

Pour Activation Formula

There are several factors that determine whether a pour attempt will result in success or failure. These factors are lumped together as 'modifiers' in the activation formula. If the total of a d100 roll plus the modifiers is 101 or greater, the pour will be successful.


You pour your potion on the leather.
1d100: 12 + Modifiers: 273 == 285

Pour Activation Modifiers

Pour Activation Modifiers Formula

MIU skill + LOG bonus + INT bonus + trunc[(AUR bonus + WIS bonus)/2] + Potion Bonus/Penalty - Item enchant bonus - Encumbrance Penalty - Armor Penalty

Example: Wizard with 200 MIU skill, 25 LOG bonus, 20 INT bonus, 25 AUR bonus, 22 WIS bonus, Dirtokh potion (+25 bonus), Item enchant bonus + 20, unencumbered and fully trained for their armor.

Pour modifiers: 200 (MIU) + 25 (LOG) + 20 (INT) + trunc(25 AUR + 22 WIS)/2 + 25 (potion bonus) - 20 (item enchant bonus) = 273

In order to have a successful pour, the pour modifiers + the d100 roll must total at least 101.

Pre-tempering Formula

With pre-tempering potions, Ayveneh designed for use with enhancive items and Eoveneh for sanctified items, there is a penalty of -200 to the pour activation. So, the pour activation result (using the data from the previous example) would be:

Pour modifiers: 200 (MIU) + 25 (LOG) + 20 (INT) + trunc(25 AUR + 22 WIS)/2 - 200 (pre-tempering potion penalty) - 20 (item enchant bonus)= 48

Since a successful pour requires a 101 total, the minimum d100 roll required for a successful outcome in this example would be 53.

Note: The -200 pre-tempering potion penalty is intrinsic to the potion itself and not the item which receives the pour. This penalty will be evident when the potion is poured on any item, including non-enhancive items.

Encumbrance Penalty

Encumbrance will reduce the pour modifiers by 1 for each 1% of encumbered body weight. E.g., a halfling with a body weight of 120 lbs. and 24 lbs. of encumbered weight will have a penalty of 20 to the pour modifiers total.

Armor Penalty

Not being adequately trained for worn armor may penalize a character's attempt to successfully pour the potion. This penalty is based on the armor's roundtime adder and the wearer's Armor Use skill. There is no armor penalty to the activation roll if the character is properly trained for their armor, or is wearing robes or light leather. The penalty for AsG 6 (full leather) and higher is 20 points per second of untrained RT adder. The formula for calculating the amount of Armor Use skill required to fully negate the penalty is (RT adder * 20) - 10.

Pour Messaging

Failure due to insufficient potion
You pour your potion on the mail.
There does not seem to be enough dirtokh potion to cover the green imflass mail.  The liquid bubbles slightly as it touches the surface of the green imflass mail, but then merely evaporates without effect.

Note that this message may now be obsolete, as previously two doses were required for each pour if the item was classified as a shield or as armor. Only one dose is now required regardless of the item; this has been true since just before the 2007 Ebon Gate Festival.

Failure due to having a spell prepped while pouring a potion
The liquid absorbs into the <ITEM> too quickly as you fumble to begin your chant and gestures, and the <ITEM> is dry in a moment's notice leaving no noticable change.
Unsuccessful pour due to item having been Edged, E-bladed, having another major enchant project active, etc.
>pour my potion on my dagger
You pour your potion on the dagger.
The liquid bubbles slightly as it touches the surface of the dagger, but then  merely evaporates without effect.
Unsuccessful pour due to item being blessed
>pour my potion on my dagger
You pour your potion on the dagger.

The liquid coats the dagger, which glows faintly white for a moment and then returns to normal.
Pre-temper failure caused by having a spell prepared while pouring the potion
You remove an ayveneh potion from in your crafted potion kit.
pour potion on my leather
You pour your potion on the leather.
1d100: 12 + Modifiers: 147 == 159

The liquid absorbs into the dark brown full leather too quickly as you fumble to begin your chant and gestures, and the leather is dry in a moment's notice leaving no noticable change
Roundtime: 20 sec.
Successful pour
You pour your potion on the mail.
  1d100: 33 + Modifiers: 234 == 267

As the liquid coats the surface of the green imflass mail, a misty aura fills the air surrounding it, dancing around your fingers as you gesture over it with a soft incantation spilling from your lips.  Small runic symbols flare to life at various points along the surface of the mail, their blurry edges wavering in response to the cadence of your voice and the liquid in these areas absorbing quickly beneath the surface.  When the last of the liquid has vanished, the symbols dissipate and the mail appears faded.  You scrutinize the green imflass mail, notice nothing amiss, and conclude that the tempering seems to have been successful.  You estimate that the green imflass mail should be ready to enchant in about 8 to 9 days.

If your enchanting project requires multiple castings, you may pour the next temper immediately after casting. There is no waiting period (other than roundtime incurred by the casting itself).

Determining the Proper Enchanting Potion

Although there are many enchanting potions, most normal projects can be successfully completed with one or more of the following, commonly available, potions:

  • Rohnuru for items with a starting enchant bonus of 0 to +5
  • Duqnuru for items with a starting enchant bonus of +6 to +15
  • Dirtokh for items with a starting enchant bonus of +16 to +25
  • Mirtokh for items with a starting enchant bonus of +26 to +30

In addition to these four, there are other specially available potions. See the 'Enchanting Potions Table' below for a complete list of potions and more detailed information.

Higher level potions may always be used for lower level enchanting projects; however this is generally not cost effective, and is usually done only when the wizard has a stockpile of high level potions.

Detempering an Active Project

It is possible to end the tempering of an active project in order to begin a new one. This can be performed by POURing a dose of a sarmoc potion on the item. Note that, like tempering a project, detempering also takes some time (though substantially less than many temper times). Status of the detemper can be checked using the Elemental Detection (405) spell. Further, the sarmoc potion can only be used by a wizard (though it does not need to be the same wizard who initiated the project). If the detempering project was a major enchantment, no new major projects should be undertaken until the detempering is complete.

Casting the Enchantment

The second part of the process is casting the spell itself. Once the temper has fully cured, the item is ready to receive the magic. Just like the previous step, the proper preparation is paramount to success.

If you receive a message similar to the following, the item is tempering but not yet cured:

You gesture at a crystal-set rosewood runestaff.
The layers of essence permeating the rosewood runestaff unfold before you to reveal the familiar patterns of a tempering enchanting project, which you recognize as one of your own. It is currently tempering and on the first step of the enchanting process. You recognize the vibrant red aura surrounding it as indicating a weak level of enchantment.

If you receive a message similar to the following, the item is tempered and cured:

You gesture at some silvery green imflass mail.
The layers of essence permeating the green imflass mail unfold before you to reveal the familiar patterns of a tempering enchanting project, which you recognize as one of your own. It is currently tempered and ready to be enchanted. It is on the fifth step of the enchanting process. You recognize the muted blue aura surrounding it as indicating a strong level of enchantment.

Once this "ready" message is received, the item is ready to be cast upon. (Note that the detection message will read "final" for the final step of each enchantment level, rather than the appropriate numerical value.)

At this point, you should check that you have positively influenced all of the factors within your control. Taking this extra step will help prevent failure that could have been avoided. Check the following section for conditions which may have a positive or negative affect on your success.

Once all factors have been taken into account, you should be ready to cast the enchantment. Simply hold the item in your hand and cast the Enchant Item (925) spell at the item. Expect a significant roundtime for this activity.

Success Factors

Positive Factors Negative Factors
Wizard Base ranks Less than full health
Major Elemental ranks Less than full spirit
Minor Elemental ranks Wounds
Level of enchanter Scars
Magic Item Use ranks Material of the item
Arcane Symbols ranks Having creatures present
Logic, Intuition, Aura Encumbrance
Elemental Mana Control ranks Death's Sting
Having a familiar in the room Having a familiar elsewhere
Earthnode or Workshop

The precise formula to achieve a successful enchantment is still largely unknown. What is known, is that the level and Wizard Base ranks of the enchanter are primary factors, and that carelessness while going through the motions is the largest factor of failure. The following table lists all known factors (positive or negative), in no particular order.

  • There is a minimum 3% failure rate for the final step of any enchant, regardless of the enchanter's stats, skills, level, or the level of the enchantment itself.
    • Gift of Eonak reduces the chances of a failed cast by providing two d100 rolls and keeping the higher result.
  • Historically, wizards would overtrain their Wizard Base ranks to achieve more skill at enchanting. In the most recent revision of the spell, benefits from Wizard Base ranks were given diminishing returns.
  • The most preventable cause of failure is attempting to cast upon an item whose temper has not yet cured, through sheer carelessness or impatience. This can be easily prevented through the proper and informed use of Elemental Detection (405).
1. If you do not have a familiar summoned, there is no bonus or penalty to Enchanting success.
2. Having a familiar summoned and in the same room as your character contributes a bonus to Enchanting success.
3. Having a familiar summoned but in a different room than your character contributes a penalty to Enchanting success. - GM Naos

  • Earthnode or Workshop:
1. Private workshops are best, but are only of benefit to their owners and useless to anyone else (i.e. not a workshop for non-owners.)
2. Guild and CHE workshops are the next best, and are equally great.
3. Public workshops are least great, but still great. - GM Naos

Use the Sense verb to determine the room status.

  • Miscellaneous Factors
    • Resistant armor is more difficult to enchant than equivalent armor sans resistances.
    • Any additional attributes that don't outright prevent enchanting increase the difficulty of enchanting; except for spikes.

Failed Casts With Messaging

Unfortunately, not all enchantments are successful. Failures range from nearly benign to utterly catastrophic.

Random 3% Failure

There is a random 3% failure which only applies to the final cast of a project; Something doesn't seem right... will be the first thing you see on this fumbled cast..

This failure is unavoidable irrespective of the enchanter's skill. The outcome from this 3% failure is also random and can range from minor to catastrophic.

Recovery: Depends on the failure severity.

>pre 925
You trace a series of glowing runes while chanting the phrase for Enchant Item...
Your spell is ready.
>cast my shield
You gesture at a target shield.

Something doesn't seem right...

A steady glow encompasses the target shield as you begin your chant, but suddenly vanishes, a number of multi-colored sparks dancing across the surface of the shield.
Roundtime: 20 sec. 

In the example above, the cast was fumbled on the final (fourth) step of a 3x to 4x project which resulted in a minor failure with a one-step setback to the enchanting process, shown by the following messaging.

New messaging from Elemental Detection (405):
The layers of essence permeating the target shield unfold before you to reveal the familiar patterns of a tempering enchanting project, which you recognize as one of your own.  It is currently tempering and on the third step of the enchanting process.  You recognize the vibrant  yellow aura surrounding it as indicating a moderate level of enchantment.
Temper Reset (Minor Failure)

This is the least severe failure resulting in a loss of tempering time from the temper being reset.

Recovery: wait out the new temper cycle and re-cast.

A faint glow encompasses the double leather as you begin your chant, but quickly flickers out...
Loss Of Temper (Minor Failure)

This failure results in the loss of one or more temper steps.

Recovery: Re-pour the potion, wait out the cycle and then re-cast.

A steady glow encompasses the mithril shield as you begin your chant, but suddenly vanishes, a number of multi-colored sparks dancing across the surface of the shield..
Loss Of All Progress (Moderate Failure)

The item is re-set to a lower previously completed enchantment (if the item was being taken from 2x to 3x, it is now again a 2x item but fully usable at this time; it is possible to regress to lower than the starting point (2x item going to 3x fails and is set to 1x)).

Recovery: Start the entire project over again with the first pour of a tempering potion; if several steps have been lost then the appropriate lower potion is usable.

The surface of the full leather shimmers slightly as you being your chant, and suddenly erupts in a brilliant burst of light!..
Multiple bursts of prismatic sparks blossom around the black long bow as you begin your chant, showering you momentarily before a brilliant burst of light erupts from the bow.
Item Becomes Cursed (Major Failure)

The item is cursed and is stuck in caster's hand until a Cleric can either Neutralize Curse (309) or Remove Curse (315). The description is changed to "blackened" (e.g., "a blackened breastplate", "some blackened leathers" etc.), and the bonus on the item is typically set to +0 or lower.

Recovery: If desired, start the process again to bring the item first to +0 and then successive steps beyond; the item will need to be either dyed or altered at a merchant in order to have the description changed. This failure may cause the item to be dropped to the ground; however, when this is the case, the item is still cursed and will become stuck in hand if picked up.

Slender wisps of essence form around the light leather, but quickly take on a dark, greenish-black hue. The wisps twist about each other, writhing in discordant response to your chant. Suddenly, the tendrils coalesce around the leather, forming a shell of black, crackling energy. With a burst of static, the leather falls from your hands and the roiling energy sinks into the leather, leaving their surface blackened.
Item Destruction (Catastrophic Failure)

The item explodes and sends flying shards outward which may wound or even kill the casting Wizard and possibly bystanders.

Recovery: None. This is the worst failure outcome and results in item destruction.

Suddenly, the double leather blossoms into a growing ball of intense white flame, the ensuing explosion sending debris through the air.  The double leather being in your hand, you take the brunt of the blast!

Note: Only the final enchantment of the project has a chance of catastrophic failure.

Casting While Item Is Still Tempering

Casting the enchant spell prematurely, while an item is still in the tempering process, will result in a minor to major failure. The outcome is random.

Recovery: Depends on level of failure

Messaging: Variable
Casting At Non-tempered Item

Casting the enchant spell at a non-tempered item results in no item damage. The messaging is similar to that of a temper reset.

Recovery: N/A

>pre 925
You trace a series of glowing runes while chanting the phrase for Enchant Item...
Your spell is ready.
>cast my dagger
You gesture at a dagger.
A muted glow instantly surrounds the dagger, flickering slightly, and fades a moment later.

Rewards for your Efforts

Successful enchantments earn experience, and potentially large amounts of silver.

While the enchantment process does not directly reward the wizard in silver, many items are enchanted with the intent of sale. By increasing the enchantment on an item, the wizard has increased its value, sometimes by immense amounts. This is particularly true of major enchantments (above 4x) and enchantments upon unusual items. Armor also tends to be profitable due to the relative lack of NPC shops that sell enchanted armor (particularly the leather-based armors commonly used by most professions), and high prices in the few shops that do. (Low level enchants on weapons and shields are available over-the-counter for the most common types, although often at much higher prices than the cost of enchanting a +0 item to the same level.)

Major enchant projects are exceedingly valuable due to the time and skill which they take to complete, and the restriction of only one major enchant at a time. In some cases, wizards will hire themselves out to provide this service on items already owned by the customer.

A few wizards prefer, instead, to produce large quantities of minor enchant projects (usually bringing items right up to the 4x minor/major cutoff) for sale. While the potential for profit is lower, some enjoy the relative lack of risk to their reputations, since their customers are unaware of failures or delays.

Experience From Enchanting

The experience gained from a successful cast is based on the following formula:

EXP = ( 100 x step of enchant ) - enchanter's level

For example, a level 50 wizard, making the third cast of an enchant would receive 250 experience.

( 100 × 3 ) - 50 = 250 EXP
