A type of liquid substance item produced by Alchemy or some other profession. Oils serve sometimes as an ingredient for other Alchemy recipes, sometimes may be used as a potion or applied on another item to provide a buff.
Large pools of this highly flammable substance are found far beneath the surface of the sea. Special Platforms must be constructed in order to drill deep enough into the ocean floor to get at this sticky, black substance. Dark oily patches, created by small geysers that form on the ocean floor and spew modest amounts of oil the into the surrounding waters, serve as a beacon to Oil Tankers hunting for the rich black liquid. Although Oil is commonly used in the construction and powering of ships, it has been utilized in the development of both experimental flying craft and extremely powerful weapons. A portion of the large salt flat, Shimmering Flats is actually a rich source of oil. The goblins have ventured to the basin in great numbers to collect and refine the "black gold." Oil is one of the main ingredients used in the production of phlogiston, a substance used to run technological devices.
