Infusing Edit

Every Ground Item contains one or more Aspects. Which aspects these are is, in most cases, randomized among the items per world seed, instead of always being found on the same item. Which aspects are on what item is also not displayed to the player immediately and must be tested through Gecko experimentation. However, each ground item does have a rarity tier that determines generally the range of aspects that they will contain (more common plants tend to have more, but lower tier aspects, while rarer plants have fewer, but higher tier aspects).

Combining Ground Items in the Infuser yields an Infusion Bucket with the aspects and amount values of the combination. These Infusion Buckets can then be distilled in the Alembic to produce Infusions or Aspect Vials, depending on whether the mixture was valid or not. Aspect Vials can be used as single aspect alternatives to ground items, as the aspect they contain is already known without the need to experiment with Geckos.

Ground Middle Gems are an exception to the usual randomization rule: Ground Aqua Middle Gem will always contain just Byrginaz, Ground Crimson Middle Gem just Firnalaz, and Ground Green Middle Gem just Fergalaz. However, the aspect will still not be displayed on the item until it is tested.

Testing Edit

Ground Items can be fed to Geckos in Gecko Cages by right clicking in order to discover their aspects. An Herblore Book must also be in the inventory while doing this to record the results. When experimenting with an item, a message will display, noting how the Gecko reacts and therefore what Aspect from the item was discovered. An entry in the Herblore Book on the aspect will also be added.

From then on, the discovered Aspect can be viewed on the Ground Item that was tested by pressing shift while hovering over the item. The aspect's icon and amount value will also be displayed.

Each Gecko experiment will only discover one Aspect, even if the Ground Item tested contains more than one. A second message will display when conducting an experiment based on whether or not there are still more aspects on that item to be discovered.

Compostability Edit

All Ground Items have a compost process time of 3 minutes and 20 seconds and a compost amount of 3. Visit the Compost page for more information regarding the composting mechanic.

Igniting Edit

Ground Moss, Cave Moss, and Thorns can be used to create fire by holding the 'use' key on their dropped form with an Octine Ingot.
