Philosopher's Stone is needed by Alchemists to perform Transmutations. It may be replaced by any Alchemist's Stone (see below) for that purpose.


This item is crafted with Alchemy (200); taught by  [Recipe: Philosopher's Stone].

Materials required:
Inv ingot iron.png 4x [Iron Bar] Inv misc gem sapphire 03.png 1x [Black Vitriol]
Inv misc herb 17.png 4x [Purple Lotus] Inv misc herb 19.png 4x [Firebloom]


  • The Stone must be in the Alchemist's inventory before a transmutation can be performed, and is not consumed by the transmutation. Most transmutations have a long cooldown (20 hours). Multiple Stones do not allow an Alchemist to perform more rapid transmutations.
