Crafting NPC[edit]

Varron can upgrade your gear

Varron Tertius <Schism Shard Collector>

  • Located in The Gatekeepers' Grove.
  • You have to complete Killing Time to speak with Varron and view the crafting recipes.


  • Schism Shards - found in the end chest of Killing Time as a rare drop. As of Update 41, they will also be available as a reward option in exchange for Time Runes. (Source: DDO Forums)

Base Weapons[edit]

Unlike most crafting systems, the base weapons capable of being upgraded exist across three entirely different quests from separate adventure packs:

White Plume Mountain
Desire in the Dark
The Temple of Elemental Evil

Sentient Jewels[edit]

Each of the recipes to upgrade or alter the White Plume Mountain weapons also requires that weapon's respective sentient jewel.

Upgrading Weapons[edit]

  • Base weapons must not have sentient jewels slotted into them. In order to use such a base weapon, the jewel must first be removed or destroyed.
  • Additionally, sentient jewels used as ingredients for upgrading must have 0 Sentience XP.
  • Note that with the White Plume Mountain weapons, each has an option of either a direct upgrade to the weapon, or an upgrade to a secondary weapon type. Be careful when making your selection!

WARNING: Any Mythic or Reaper bonuses the base weapon has will be lost on upgrade.

  • As of Update 41, players will be able to spend a new raid ingredient, Threads of Fate, to add Mythic +2 or Mythic +4 bonuses to the upgraded versions of these weapons. (Source: DDO Forums)
