Inv misc orb 01

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


This item is crafted with Classic Alchemy (50); taught by Inv scroll 03 [Recipe: Philosopher's Stone].

Materials required ( 240 260 280 ):
Inv ingot iron 4x [Iron Bar] Inv misc gem sapphire 03 1x [Black Vitriol]
Inv misc herb 17 4x [Purple Lotus] Inv misc herb 19 4x [Firebloom]
OptionalReagent-Plus Relic of the Past I-V


  • 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.
