Material components are one or more physical substances or objects that are annihilated by the spell energies in the casting process. In DDO, all the spells of the same level and class which require a material component use the same item. Those items are sold by reagent vendors around Stormreach. They stack together, so a typical spellcaster will keep hundreds of components at hand for each of the spell levels he can cast.
Some spells require special or different components, they are;
- Create Undead requires a Black Onyx †
- Death Pact requires a Large Diamond †
- Flame Arrow requires a regular arrow
- Holy Sword requires a Anointed Cold Iron Weapon
- Reincarnate requires a Porcupine Quill
- Stoneskin requires Granite and Diamond Dust (10 for 250pp)
- Tenser's Transformation requires a Potion of Bull's Strength
- Trap the Soul requires Khyber Dragonshards
† This is a purchased component, not a randomly-occurring gem.
