This essence swirls and glows with a bright white light. Eight Brilliant Air Essences can be combined into one Pristine Air Essence by using the Shaper's Alembic on them. Two Brilliant Air Essences can be converted into a single Brilliant Power Essence.

Brilliant Air Essences are also suitable for enchanting. To enchant an item, place it in the Enchanter's Satchel along with one or more Brilliant Air Essences, then cast the appropriate spell on the item. Use up to four Brilliant Air Essences for more powerful enchantments. Any item can be enchanted to hold up to three item properties total, or four if the enchanter is of epic level. Enchanting an item with a property it already has will replace the item's existing property, whether or not the new property is better than the existing one. The required caster level depends upon the number of essences you are using:

1 Brilliant Essence -- Caster Level 12
2 Brilliant Essences -- Caster Level 15
3 Brilliant Essences -- Caster Level 18
4 Brilliant Essences -- Caster Level 21
