As promised, alteration rules, rarity levels, and price points would be developed and released. Now that we've got those ironed out, you can freely start thinking up cool designs to involve them in! Buckle up, because this is going to be a long and informative post.

First, let's go over the alteration rules concerning these materials.

Materials now able to be used in alterations:
Scheelite, axinite, ilmenite, selenite, celestite, malachite, xibaryl, asketine, avaes, azurite, calavarite, elbaite, erythrite, hafaltu, imnera, rhodonite, lemicule, zengalmi, iheaneu'a, and sraeth.

  • Rarity level on these materials is merchant. That means you may find items in shops that contain them in the future. Staff has been asked to clearly mark them if they are magical or not to avoid confusion.
  • These materials must be provided during alterations.
  • Intricate detailing via carving is not possible. Engraving is fine.

Materials that may not be used:
Albredine, jadeite, kyanite, lantholite, lasmodi, sjatmal, waermodi.

Special Note:
Indakar is not a material. Indakar is only a S'Kra Mur word meaning thunder. Yes, your Indakar rattle is likely now a bit rare, but it's not a material, sorry!

Now, for the materials and their descriptions!
