Magic ItemsCoolies, magic items. You'll start the game with four unidentified items (unless you start late then you'll get more), you have to scribe an identify scroll on the arkane tree page for 50,000 arkane points before you can use your magic items. Once identified you can use the magic items/artifacts. You can also put an item up for sale in the auction, scrolls/artifacts are used on the friendly spells and spells pages (respectively).
Use your own magic items, don't simply give them all away, if you are an "item farm" for another player, both accounts risk deletion.
Some items must be equipped to be used, some are automatic, some you click the use button and they will automatically invoke. Frenzy type scrolls will stack up to a 170% increase.
