Internally, all alchemy items (food, drinks, potions, and poisons), enchantments, ingredients, scrolls and spells derive from the same object, MagicItem, and thus share a similar structure.

Auto-calc:

  • Charge Time: The longest Casting Time of all of the effects.
  • Spell Cost: The total of all effect costs.

For auto-calc purposes, the game calculates the cost of an effect as:

effect_base_cost * (Magnitude * Duration / 10) ^ 1.1

A Magnitude < 1 is treated as 1, and a Duration of 0 as 10.

* CTDA Conditions CTDA Conditions on the effect.
