This powerful alembic allows you to convert, combine, and divide essences. Essences are used to enchant items. They are automatically distilled from the remains of many creatures, such as elementals and most beasts. Typically, only volatile essences are found and the alembic must be used to convert them into brilliant essences for enchanting purposes. Items are enchanted by placing them in the Enchanter's Satchel along with one or more essences, and then casting the appropriate spell. Many standard recipes are explained in the item description for any brilliant essence.

The abilities of the Shaper's Alembic include:
1. Combine Essences. Using this ability on a stack of lesser essences converts them into a more powerful one. No value is lost.
2. Divide Essence. Using this ability on a powerful essence converts it into an equivalent number of lesser essences. No value is lost.
3. Convert Essence. When used on a stack of elemental essences (fire, air, earth, water), two are converted into a single power essence of the same quality. When used on a power essence, several lesser essences are created of each elemental type.
