Celestial Solvent is solid by him, but celestial essence is not. It is still only crafted by players and the easiest recipe uses The Scent of Marr since it can be purchased in an unlimited supply from poison and research vendors. Celestial Solvent is an ingredient to make Celestial Essence.

Most of the items listed that drop are gone from the game. "The Scent of Marr" can be purchased from 'Sansus Rasumus' in POK.

Mixing Bowl, Scent of Marr and Celestial Solvent is the absolute easiest way.

Detailed info for where to find in PoK is at


Special thanks to tinamou for providing exact locations/names of vendors. Typically these will sell for 4-5pp in bazaar. I generally sell (on average) 400-500 a night (when I'm actively making these.) Easist way to make money. A little time consuming, but if you find a method to making them, you will do just fine.

They made this into a tradeskill so that it could be made using the new window, it is still no-fail however. I've made hundereds and never failed. All the components you can use to make it are also listed in the tradeskill window I find the easiest to use is the tears of prexus, essence of marr, wings of xegony they are found on many venders especially in PoK and makes the combining alot faster then using a dozen diffrent components.

anyone know if it is still a no fail?

If there is a trivial, then it can fail.
One nice thing about the new way of doing it, i have more use for a mixing bowl than Mortar and pestle. at least I dont have a slot taken up by an item that i use raely, and cann replace it with a 10 slot bag. Nice, but it sucks that we were notified of a major change in the way of doing things. as if there arent enough things for the programmers to fixing the bugs that they should have caught on test

It is in fact still no-fail, it has always been. In fact all no-fail items that are related to a tradeskill have a trivial of 15 if I remember correctly, as I remember getting skillups on many different quest combines, such as the Earring of the Solstice final combine (no-fail in the forge) for example. The trivial of 15 is a nice bonus that'll get your skill up to 15 (not a big deal, you can train higher than that with guildmaster).

Incorrect recipe

On 8/8/03 I created Celestial Essence in a mortar and pestle using only The Scent of Marr and Celestial Solvent. No research components were required, nor were any that are listed in this thread allowed in the mortar/pestle.

Scent of Marr is a research component for mage spells. Always has been.

To make the Celestial Essence even faster I found 1 spot where you can buy all the things you need. And all the vendors selling the different items are only a few feet away from each other.
I have been sniffing around in POK and yes....
Where you zone in from any pok book, face north West and run to the building you see.
1. Mortar & Pestle
Name : Ciren Darkbog (-131, 1421)
He's upstairs, first door on the right

2. Celestial Solvent
Name : Darius Gandril (52, 1530)
He's in the little square, between this building underneath one of the tents

3. Scent of Mar
Name : Loran Thu'Leth (-112, 1407)
He's in the same room as Ciren Darkbog.

Now go make that poison...

Cut all this talking. Just buy these three items at the following location and you will be creating Celestial Essence in no time:
1. Scent of Marr
Location : East Commons
Name NPC : Lyth Spellstar
She is to be found in the hut left of the Inn. That Inn is the be found right after you zone in from WC to EC on your left side. The same spot where that lady is that sells batwings.

2. Mortar & Pestle
Location : Shadow Heaven - +199, -38 - that is building 8 on eqatlas map
Name : Ferusal

3. Celestial Solvent
Location : Shadow Heaven - +326, -89
Name : Sedaitam Cournsian

I hope this will help - Greets from Belgium
Location :
Poisonmaking, actually...

Allakhazam says this is made using non-tradeskill. Technically, it's made using poisonmaking, but it's no-fail and trivial at 0 poisonmaking skill, so you need not be a rogue to make it.

Although you can buy some of these components in PoK, I just got done with 2 Mistmoore LDoNs & have 2 backpacks full of runes, words, etc. from the list of components. So it would seem that this is where to get them as drops.

Not sure about other LDoNs. Will check now. =)
