Learn How to Perform Practice Spell Research

Creation of the Practice Runes is done in the Concordance of Research (a book/container obtained through a quest) and requires no skill whatsoever. Research Skill increases are only obtained by combining pairs of runes (Azia and Beza) in your classes actual research tome (bought in most any spell casterís guildhall or obtained via a quest in Gulf of Gunthak).

Wizards: Lexicon or Sorcerer's Lexicon
Enchanters: Tome Of Endless Enchantments or Phantasmal Tome
Necromancers: Book Of Dark Bindings or Warlock's Book Of Binding
Magicians: Elemental Grimoire or Arch Magus Grimoire


  1. You can start skilling up in Spell Research beginning at level 16

A listing of Trivials for Mage and Necro and Enchanter Research spells was not found in the respective forums, however the class forums and other resources do have useful spreadsheets/checklists to help you track your collection of research components.

Additional comments: as many may point out, practice runes are a lot of trouble. It may just be easier to combine ACTUAL research components for skill-ups. However, with the advent of Celestial Essence, research runes, pages and words may no longer be as easily obtainable as in the past.Itís up to the researcher to decide the best path for him/her self.

Good luck and may your skill-ups be plentiful and your failures few and far between.
