Herbalism is the ability to create mixes from sprigs. Mixes have a variety of magical effect, both defensive and offensive. Because this allows the mixer to expend spell points ahead of time and regenerate them before using the mixes, herbalism can be quite powerful. Mixing requires an item of type 'mortar-and-pestle' and sprigs. Sprigs can be bought at shops throughout Alyria, in particular in New Rigel, Rune, Xaventry, and Lowangen. They are consumed in the mixing process. Sprigs come in different varieties with different power. Created by mixing from 2 to 7 sprigs together (two of which must be different), mixes have a power that is the sum of their component. That power determines the spell contained in the mix. You may mix up to twice your herbalism skill plus the bonus from the mortar being held. It is possible to surge a mix, resulting in damage or death. Several sites have guides to herbalism, including this site. If a sprig of sedum rosea is included in the mix, the mix will have the owner-only flag and decay over the course of several days. Without sedum rosea, mixes last about 3 Alyrian hours (45 minute in real life) of game time.
