For information on the skill, see Enchant.
For a complete list of Enchant powders, see Magic Powders List.
The user interface of the enchantment system, with the protect scroll option toggled.


The Enchant system uses the Enchant.png Enchant skill to imbue the powers of an Enchant Scroll.png Enchant Scroll onto an item.

  • The Enchant skill allows you to imbue items with magical effects, and can only be used by placing a Magic Powder in the right hand and an Enchant Scroll in the left.
    • Magic Powder can be bought from NPCs or obtained through a number of different methods.


An item that can be used with the items already in the UI will be highlighted in green.
  • When using the Enchant skill, the Enchant window will appear.
    • You may deposit the items directly in the interface without actually equipping the Enchant Scroll nor the Magic Powder.
  • Enchanting uses 6 Mana per use.
  • In order to enchant an item, it must have at least 1 Durability.
  • When enchanting, hovering over the ? icon near the Enchant success rate will tell you your base success rate as well as the Enchant Scroll's rank.
  • Items can be placed in the Enchant menu automatically using Alt + left mouse click.
  • When the maximum roll on the enchantment is achieved, the enchant attribute will be highlighted in yellow.

Magic Powders

  • Except from Magic Powder and Blessed Magic Powder, all magic powders and the Lughnasadh daily effect (Thursday) add a bonus to the enchanter's base success rate.
  • Most equipment and weapons can be enchanted with Prefix and Suffix enchantments, but only one of each.
    • For example, enchanting a Prefix onto an item that already has a Prefix will replace it.

Enchant Scrolls

  • Enchant scrolls have durability; if it reaches 0%, it cannot be used.
  • An Enchant Scroll will vanish upon success, with its effects transferred to the item.
  • Upon failure, the scroll will lose Durability.
    • Lost durability on Enchant Scrolls cannot be restored. Once it reaches 0%, the scroll becomes useless. A higher Enchant skill rank will reduce a scroll's durability by a smaller amount upon failure.
  • An Elemental enchantment can also be added along with a Prefix and Suffix enchantment. However, an Elemental enchantment does not use the Enchant skill, and can only be applied by using an elemental.

Enchant Protection

  • You have two options: to protect the Scroll, or to protect the piece of equipment you wish to enchant.

Protect Equipment:

  • Protects the item from failure penalties when enchanting fails.
    • If the enchantment fails, the scroll will be destroyed.
    • The effect of the Enchant Protection Potion can not be used to prevent this outcome.

Protect Scroll:

  • Protects the Enchant Scroll from penalty when enchanting fails (scroll durability is partially reduced).
  • If the enchantment fails, the item's durability may decrease or the item may be rendered “Unable to Enchant”

If you have not used an Enchant Protection Potion.png Enchant Protection Potion and the Enchant Scroll is of rank 6 and Above, it is highly recommended to protect the piece of equipment as the cost of getting the materials to recover from the Unable to Enchant status is significantly high.

  • Loss of Durability or destruction of an item due to a failed enchantment can be stopped using an Enchant Protection Potion.
  • The effect of the Enchant Protection Potion is applied when selecting the Protect Scroll option.
    • When the Enchant Protection Potion is used, if the enchantment fails, the item is protected from durability loss or the unenchantable state, though the scroll’s durability is decreased by 5%.

Failing an Enchantment

  • Depending on the selected protection option before enchanting, the unprotected item may incur Durability Loss should the enchantment fail.
  • If the enchantment fails, there is also a chance that the target item may lose durability at Scroll Ranks F-A, and will lose durability at Ranks 9-7. Failure at Rank 6 and above will cause the target item to enter the (Unable to enchant) state, where it can no longer be enchanted.
    • This state can be repaired through Stewart's services.
    • This requires one Enchant Recovery Essence.png Enchant Recovery Essence, obtaining one of these is a very time-consuming and expensive process.
  • Using an Enchant Scroll of Rank 5 or higher requires an Enchant Skill Rank of 5 or higher.

Success Rates

  • Success rate is capped at 90%
  • The rank of the skill has no effect on the success rate.
  • Intelligence stops affecting success at 200.

The formula for success rate is ((Intelligence - 25) / 350 + 1 + (Powder Bonus) + (Thursday Bonus) + (Event Bonus)) * (Base Success Rate)

F E D C B A 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1
75 70 65 60 55 50 35 33 30 27 22 16 11 7 5
  • If using the Enchant Helper event NPC for an entrust, the following changes occur:
    • Intelligence is always calculated as the max (200).
    • Thursday's bonus is ignored.
    • The final success rate has a flat +10% added to it.
  • The displayed success rate in-game is subject to rounding error. It is unknown whether or not the server suffers equivalent rounding error.

enchantSuccess:min(90, floor(((int - 25) / 350 + 1 + (powder / 100) + thursday) * scrollRank)) enchantHelperSuccess:min(90, (floor((0.5 + 1 + (powder / 100)) * scrollRank))+10)

Enchant Burning

It is possible to extract the enchantments from an item by Enchant Burning it in a Campfire. In order to do this, you must have a Mana Herb.png Mana Herb and a Holy Water of Lymilark.png Holy Water of Lymilark in your inventory.

Pick up the item you wish to burn, hover it in the campfire until you see the burn symbol. Click the burn symbol and select "Enchanter's Burn." The item will be destroyed, resulting in experience points. You will have a chance to receive a Magic Powder, and a chance to receive one or two equivalent Enchant Scrolls.
Success Rates

  • Intelligence has no effect on success rate.
  • The Thursday (Lughnasadh) bonus to Enchant success rates no effect on Enchant burning; it only applies to the enchanting of items.
  • Players can influence the success rate of enchant extraction by burning enchants on Campfires built by players with at least Rank B Campfire.
  • The quality of wood used to build the fire has an additional effect on the enchant extraction rate.
    • Higher grade firewood can be created using the Carpentry skill.
  • Enchant Burning success rate is dependent only upon:
    • The Enchant Rank,
    • The rank of the Campfire in which the target item is being burnt,
    • The grade of the wood (with Special Firewood.png Special Firewood providing the highest success rate) used in the Campfire.
  • The success rate is applied independently to Prefix and Suffix Enchants on items. Therefore, if a burned item has both a Prefix and a Suffix Enchant, it is possible to receive only one Enchant Scroll, instead of both the Prefix and Suffix.

You can use Entrust to request another player in the same party to do the Enchanting instead.

Entrusting Enchants

  • All magic powders may be used to Entrust an enchant.
    • The Magic Powder must be inside the entruster's inventory, or equipped to the right-hand (weapon) slot. The Enchant Scroll, however, can be inside a bag, and entrusting will still be possible.
    • Unlike the process for entrusting burns, the trustee can have a lower rank of Enchant than the entrustor.
  • The process for entrusting Enchants is as follows:
    1. The player with the Enchant Scroll must right-click the Enchant Scroll and select "Entrust Enchant."
    2. A list of party members will appear. Select the desired trustee and click OK.
    3. The Enchant entrusting interface will appear. Click and drop the Enchant Scroll and the desired target item into the designated slots near the top of the window, and select "Request."
      • If the trustee is unable to accept the Enchant request at this point, try taking the Enchant Scroll and target item out of the window, and placing them back in the opposite order they were inserted the first time.
      • If the trustee has 0 Mana, the trade will be cancelled without further remark when the trustee clicks 'Enchant.'
    4. Once the trustee clicks "Enchant," simply wait for the Enchanting process to end.

Entrusting Burns

  • A player can entrust the burning of an enchanted item to another player (trustee) with a higher Enchant skill rank.
  • In order to do this, the following is required:
  • These items are not given (traded) to the trustee.
      • Please note that a Sunlight Herb is used for entrusting burns. Mana Herb.png Mana Herbs are used for performing one's own burns (not entrusting).
  • The process for entrusting burns is as follows:
    1. The item to be burned is dragged onto the Campfire like normal.
    2. "Entrust Burn" is selected in the dialog window that appears. A list of party members will appear from which the trustee (the player who will be doing the burning) is chosen.
    3. After the trustee accepts the request to burn the item, a new dialog window will appear. The item to be burned, the Sunlight Herb and the Holy Water of Lymilark are placed into the appropriate slots.
      1. Do not place the items in the inventory slots below the designated slots for the Herb and Holy Water. This will not count towards the requirement.
    4. When OK is clicked, the item will be burned, and the Sunlight Herb and the Holy Water of Lymilark will be consumed.
  • Note that even if a trustee has Rank 1 Enchant, this will not guarantee that any Enchant Scroll will be received, but does indicate that he/she have the highest chance of successfully obtaining any.
    • However, Magic Powder will always be extracted from the item at Rank 1.


  • Prior to the ?? update, the Magic Powder used in entrusting could not be in a bag.
    • Some Enchants were special and were entirely exempt from this rule.
  • Prior to the NEXT: New Beast update, Enchanting needed to be done sequentially: Enchants above Rank 9 or higher required an Enchant at least one Rank lower on the target item to use the scroll. For more information, see Enchanting Sequences.
    • Some enchants ignored this restriction, and were labeled Enchant enabled regardless.
  • Prior to the Dark Arts update, you could use an Enchant Scroll or entrust one without any Magic powder.
    • An Enchant Scroll used without Magic Powder would vanish even if the enchantment fails.
