Wayerd pyramid

A Wayerd pyramid is used to dry herbs as the first step in preparing a potion. To use the standard pyramid you must be outside with the sun visible.

  • LOWER <GROUND/RIGHT/LEFT>: To lower it at your feet.

Pyramids will not work when tied to your body or placed inside a container. As long as it is in the sun the pyramid will emit a low humming noise as the sun's rays shine down on it. Pyramids will continue to hum as long as there is sun (or mana for cambrinth pyramids) to power them; even after completion of drying. It is recommended you set a highlight string for the messaging that signifies completion.

  • Every pulse with an effect: The <pyramid> emits a low humming noise.
  • Every pulse where a herb reaches fully dried: After several moments a high-pitched humming resonates from the <pyramid>.

Pyramids pulse once per minute and take a minimum of 15 pulses to dry an herb, so the minimum time it takes to dry an herb is 15 minutes assuming no missed pulses. This does not get interrupted by opening and closing a pyramid and each herb independently tracks the number of pulses it has spent being dried so adding new herbs will not make previous herbs take longer. Knowing the Advanced Herb Preparation technique from the Remedies discipline will reduce the minimum number of pulses it takes to dry an herb down to 6 making the minimum time taken 6 minutes.

When you see the completion messaging it's time to OPEN your pyramid. If you haven't set the highlight string, or you missed it, you'll have to check the contents of the pyramid after a few minutes. The total number of parts in your pyramid and the quality of the sun (how bright it is and how cloudy the sky is) influences how quickly your pyramid will dry your herbs.

Cambrinth Wayerd pyramids

Wayerd pyramids also come in the cambrinth variety, although these are rarer. Cambrinth Wayerd pyramids may be used at any time, in any weather and even indoors. In order to use a cambrinth Wayerd pyramid, you must CHARGE <PYRAMID TYPE> <#>, while it is in your hand or at your feet. Do not INVOKE your pyramid. If you INVOKE the pyramid it will function as cambrinth to power your spells rather than drying it's contents. Each kind of cambrinth pyramid, no matter what it looks like, can hold a maximum of 10 mana, and each hum of the pyramid uses one mana stream. Like mundane Wayerd pyramids, a cambrinth Wayerd pyramid must be closed to function.
