Alchemists are able to recharge player made charged items using
special distills. The distills are available in a number of types (detailed
below), each distill corresponds to a material level. The distill used is based
off the metal used in making the tincture, not necessarily the metal of the item
that it is imbued into.
eg. an Alloy tincture imbued into a Fine
Alloy dagger would only require a Liquid Alloy Renewal, not a Liquid Fine
You should be able to work out the correct
distill to use by delving the item and comparing the effect data with the effect
listing on this web site. It is important to do this since recharging an item
with a distill of a higher level than is necessary will still work, but will
cost you more than is necessary to get the task done.
There are two ways to recharge an item:
Have a player hand you the item, place
the correct distill on your side of the trade window and then check the
combine checkbox and both hit accept.
Right click the item you want to recharge
in your inventory and press the Self Craft button to bring up the Self Craft
interface, click Craft and then add the correct distill to your side of the
window and hit accept.
The table below details each of the distills
along with their cost. The distills are available from merchants within your
realm, check out the
Merchants section of this website for their locations.
Liquid Alloy Renewal
Liquid Fine Alloy Renewal
Liquid Mithril Renewal
Liquid Adamantium Renewal
Liquid Asterite Renewal
Liquid Netherium Renewal
Liquid Arcanium Renewal
Recharging does not require you to be by an alchemy table, nor to have an
alchemy kit or mortar and pestle in your inventory. This means that recharging
can be done in the field. However recharging does do a skill check against your
alchemy skill and if your skill is not high enough you will not be able to
recharge the item.
We have been trying to determine what skill level is required to recharge
arcanium charges. Thanks to Beorning on the IGN Vault Tradeskill board, Hroft /
Excalibur, Imperator / Lancelot and Qisa / Bedevere we have confirmed that you
can recharge arcanium level 47 charges at an alchemy skill of 858.
One thing to note is that unlike the NPC rechargers who charge according to the
number of charges being recharged, that a single distill will recharge an item
to full capacity no matter how many charges were used up. So to get the best
value for money you probably want to wait until the item has all it's charges
used up before recharging. Also players can only recharge player made items,
they cannot recharge dropped or quested items with charges, likewise NPC
rechargers can only recharge dropped or quested items, they cannot recharge
player made items.
