Mortars and pestles
can be purchased in the guild alchemy shops
and town alchemist shops. Each is much less expensive when purchased in the various guild alchemy
shops. They are used in tandem to GRIND
ingredients. Mortars can hold up to five small items and contents can be emptied
into other containers or discarded using CLEAN
Prior to the implementation of alchemy, they were solely used by sorcerers to make crimson salt crystals for Animate Dead (730). Because of this, some mortars are still sold using the old coding and must be converted. This includes the mortar sold in the Wehnimer's Landing alchemist shop. In order to convert the mortar, the matching pestle must be used, and that pestle may only be used on one mortar. Place the pestle in the mortar and TAP, then RUB it.
