Jump to navigation Jump to search


Books are one of the categories of items in Elin.

Most are consumable items that disappear after being read a certain number of times, but books with red covers contain information about the setting of the game and can be read over and over again.

Spell Books

When you read it successfully, you gain stock of the related spell, based on your Memorization skill.

Failure results in negative effects such as confusion, draining mana, or summoning monsters.

Books of Bolt, Dart, Ball and Touch spells can also be used with a Calligrapher's Tool to make Talismans.

Ancient Books

It is an undeciphered book written in runes.

Failure to decipher will result in negative effects such as confusion, draining mana, or summoning monsters.

Scrolls

It is a scroll imbued with magical power, and is a consumable item that disappears after being read once. When read, it activates the magic of the same name or has a unique effect. In addition to scrolls, there are also things that are shaped like books or bills.

The table below only lists scrolls that activate effects that are not found in magic. Please also refer to the Spellcasting page.

Maps

The map is a consumable item, and when read it will generate a random Nefia nearby. However, it is not effective in areas surrounded by the ocean.

The treasure map shows where the treasure is buried, and if you dig in the corresponding place with a shovel, you will find a buried treasure chest. The cursed treasure map must be unscrambled before it can be read, because when read, the map crumbles into pieces and is gone before the location of the treasure is known.

Recipes

A memo containing a crafting recipe. Reading recipes you have learned will strengthen your recipe level.

They may be found randomly in treasure chests, or specific recipes may be sold by NPCs.

There are two types of recipes: one that grants the corresponding recipe, and one that randomly grants one recipe from a specific category such as cooking or furniture.

Skill books

When read, you will gain experience points for the skill. When given to a pet, the pet will learn the skill.

Currently in Beta, this is one of the few ways to teach your pet skills.

Plans

Get home skills and policies. Since the acquisition of a skill is independent of each land, it must be read in the land where you want that skill or policy to be acquired.

Note that reading the same plan multiple times on land that has already acquired that skill or policy will have no effect.

Title Deeds

This is a title deed that can be purchased from a Scrivener.
