Enchanting is the skill of creating magic items with a wide variety of special effects. Enchanting has changed significantly in EUO 1.2.1, and additional changes may occur in the near future (i.e., this page may soon be outdated). Enchanting currently functions like most other skills. Use an enchanting wand with the appropriate ingredients in your inventory, and choose from a list of items you have the skill and ingredients to create. As with most other skills, highly skilled player will no longer gain skill crafting simple items.

Creating enchanted items usually requires charged soul shards. In general, the stronger the enchant, the brighter the shard (or shards) required. Stronger monsters drop brighter shards.
Soul shards will start off as blanks (or uncharged), ie, not dim, dull etc. To make a soul shard useable for enchanting, a player skilled in magery must cast the Soul Trap spell (In Mani Jux or create life trap) on a monster, and if it dies within 30 seconds, it will drop a charged soul shard, of random color. The charge on the shard will depend on the strength of the monster killed. The killer of the monster must have blank shards in their inventory in order for a charged shard to be created.
Blank shards are available for purchase at certain stores.
Enchanting ingredients now cover a very broad range of items. Ingredients may be basic items which have uses outside of enchanting, such as torches, or may include raw ingredients also used in other crafting skills, such as alchemy. There are a few items which are only used in enchanting recipes:
- enchanted wood: made with enchanting
- essence of fire: made with alchemy (from glowing embers dropped by fire dragons)
- essence of lightning: made with alchemy (from hydra fangs dropped by hydras)
- gems (amethyst, diamond, emerald, fire opal, onyx, ruby, sapphire, topaz, zircon): from disenchanting
- orb: found in chests, or dropped by monsters?
- wet clay: dropped by an earth golem
Disenchanting and Gems
Disenchanting will remove an enchant from a weapon or armour, leaving the basic item and one or more gems. Most enchanting recipes do not require gems, so there is currently little use for them.
Disenchanted items will yield the following gems:
- slaying : diamond
- defense : fire opal
- nightvision: onyx
- magic resistance: topaz
- intelligence : sapphire+zircon
- dexterity : emerald+zircon
- strength : ruby+zircon
- vigour: amethyst+zircon
- leeching: zircon
- spell enchant: diamond+zircon
Improved (polished, shimmering, etc.) gems no longer exist in EUO 1.2.1. Improved fire opals and diamonds have been removed entirely. Improved onyxes, topazes, and zircons have been converted to special gems which can not currently be used. However, there is also no source for these special gems besides existing stocks from EUO 1.2, so hang on to any you have in hopes that they will become useful.
The Grand Master Enchanter can create her/his own pet: a Crystal Golem.
The recipe is a closely guarded secret, but it is known to include gems from disenchanting, and a golem power crystal.
Power crystals can be found after other golems have been rendered inoperative, but finding a crystal undamaged will prove a difficult task.
Once the golem is crafted, an inanimate golem will be in the enchanter's inventory. Use this and it will spring to life. If the tinker has no pet already, then this golem will become their new pet. If the tinker has a pet already, then the golem will be a neutral creature which will disappear after a time.
Golems may be fed by using (shift+u) more power crystals on it, however this is unnecessary as golems never get unhappy or wander off.
Wand of Transference
A rare monster drop, the Wand of Transference (single use) allows you to swap the + enchantment between two items of the same type at the cost of a 90% chance of reducing both items' charges by 1. This requires having both a high enough enchant skill and charged shards in your inventory, and the items being improved can only have; plain, copper, silver, gold, venomous and blackrock tints. Spell enchants are not transferable.
