Magical Artifacts are often used to harness certain magical properties or abilities and conduct or control various sources of magic or cast spells. They can be diverse and varied in shapes and sizes, but they are also mysterious and strange, and knowledge about some of them is often rare.

Abyssal Incenses are incense sticks made from the fur of Shadowpaws. Inhaling their smoke temporarily perfects someone's memory of the last month they experienced, allowing them to recall details they may have originally missed.
Assassin's bindings are ribbon-like objects that are imbued with moon magic and are used by Moonshadow Elf assassins as an oath of honor to their mission. During a ritual to swear an oath, the white bindings are wrapped around a body part, usually a wrist or arm, and bind an assassin to their mission until their target has been taken out or until they suffer the consequences of their failure. The number of bindings worn by an assassin reflect the number of targets of a mission. If a target is not eliminated the binding will tighten over time, constricting a user's blood flow and eventually severing the bound body part. As long as the target is killed, the binding corresponding to that target will fall off of all assassins bound to a duty, even if they did not participate in the actual assassination. The bindings can usually not be cut or taken off by outside forces, with the exception of Rayla's binding, which was bitten off by Azymondias.
Once a target is killed, the binding releases itself and turns red, becoming a "blood ribbon".
Claw of Initium Et Finis
Cuirass of Vuxen
The Cuirass of Vuxen is a relict created by Innean's blacksmith, which is forged from the city's rare metals and enhanced with sky magic. It is capable of redirecting earth and sky magic and prevents a carrier from being frozen into a magical state by the Primal Well.
The Curlcoral Cutlass is forged from light clay and an arm of curlcoral containing ocean magic. Due to the sturdiness and regenerative properties of curlcoral, this weapon can take on more than a regular sword. It needs to be occassionally submerged in water for maintenance and will take longer to regrow after being shattered twice. It is said to currently be found in Neolandia.
The Flexxenboom Bracelet is a piece of accessories that fits the shape of its wearer. Saving sky energy, it can discharge a loud and bright blast of lightning. It was originally owned by a Skywing Mage named Flexxen.
Hollowhush Quills are quills forged from glass that are imbued with sky magic, used to relay messages by whispering them into the tool and that can be stored for around one hour. While their origin is unclear, they appear to be crafted by Skywing Elves.
Hopclog Stompers are rubbery clogs formed from tree roots that are surprisingly light and comfortable. They take on the form of an earth spell rune, and allow the wearer to have a spring in their step when moving on soil, rock, or other natural grounds.
Key of Aaravos
The Key of Aaravos is a magical dice-like cube with runes that dictate the six Primal Sources on all sides. When in the presence of a magical creature or a Primal Source, its respective rune glows. It originally belonged to Aaravos before it came into the possession of the Orphan Queen, a female ancestor of Harrow, and was passed down in their family for generations. According to him, legends claim that it unlocks something of great power in Xadia.
These rare gems contain primal magic and can be crushed to cast spells; a useful tool used by non-mages to make up for their lack of spell knowledge. For instance, Runaan used a Moon Opal to cast "Mystica-Arbora", a spell of invisibility. Moon Opals can also be used to replicate an event of the past as an illusion through the use of a spell named "Historia Viventem". A moonstone can be used to create an illusion, and a fire ruby may be crushed to create a fireball.
A mirror that Viren stole from the dragon lair inside the Storm Spire with mysterious runes inscribed on its frame. It was created to protect the world from an ancient and mysterious threat, with Runaan describing it as "something worse than death". It was eventually revealed that Aaravos, an elven Archmage, is trapped inside the mirror. Before Viren stole the mirror, it was kept close to where Avizandum and Zubeia slept.
The only known way to view the world on the other side of the mirror is to completely darken the room by magically absorbing the flames that are producing the light. The same rule applies to the other side of the mirror as well.
The actual location of the world inside the mirror remains unknown, even to Aaravos. The space closest to his side of the mirror is a room equipped with a fireplace, tables, and filled bookshelves. A secondary door exists outside of the mirror's field of vision.
A metal lotus is a handcrafted artifact of the Moonshadow Elves, namely produced by their craftsman Ethari. It serves the purpose of signaling whether an assassin has survived or failed their mission when sent out. Each assassin receives a lotus, which is then placed inside a pool in the Silvergrove, and the lotus sinks to the bottom if its user has died. If the user's life force is difficult to locate, as with Runaan upon being trapped inside a coin, the lotus will slightly sink, but not to the bottom of the pool.
Mirror of Anti-Vanity
Primal Stones are powerful artifacts that act as conduits to Primal Sources even when the source itself is not immediately available. They give a mage access to primal energy anywhere, anytime: sun magic in darkness, earth magic at sea, and moon magic during the day. They are also the only means by which a human not connected to an Arcanum can use primal magic. But Primal Stones are incredibly rare; only master mages can craft them, and the crafting rituals themselves have largely been lost to time.
The Primal Well is a chest-sized chunk of marble, faceted like a diamond, reverberating with the residual magic it collects from the air around it, which kept the city of Innean afloat. The artifact uses both sky and earth magic to function. If anyone touches the Primal Well without wearing the Cuirass of Vuxen to protect themselves from its powerful magic, the person making contact would be frozen into a magical statue.
Satchel of Sprinklebit Suspension
The Satchel of Sprinklebit Suspension contains tiny specks of dust that suspend in the air and pop into colorful lights and are harvested from polled containing sun magic. They can be used as an alarm trap or distraction thanks to being hardly visible while in flight.
Shadowhawks are bird-shaped arrows that transform into smoky, illuminated hawks when fired. They transform when given the name of their recipient in Ancient Draconic speech. An example is Runaan sending one to the Dragon Queen Zubeia to let her know their mission was complete.
Each arrow has a different meaning. A red arrow carries a message of death and a white arrow carries a message of life.
Shadowhawks were created by both elves and dragons. For the arrows to successfully work, both the sender and the receiver have to be on the same plane of existence. If this is not the case, the Shadowhawk's abilities will not activate, reducing them to simple arrows.
Shadowlife Candles are candles made from the blood of Moon Phoenixes mixed with the earwax of dragons. These candles allow mages to create smoky afterimages of deceased living creatures that will do the caster's bidding after sprinkling their ashes on the flame, which turns purple upon contact.
Staffs can be used to cast spells. Not much is known about them other than that they are often wielded by mages and embedded with a Primal Stone. The relic staff, the first object that allowed humanity to make use of dark magic, was gifted to Ziard by one of the "Great Ones" and eventually made its way into the hands of Viren.
Sunforge equipment is an umbrella term for rare, magical weapons and armor forged by Sunfire Elves inside the Sunforge of Lux Aurea. This equipment is enchanted with sun magic, giving the pieces unique properties that make them very valuable. They are kept in sheaths that are inscribed with runes to protect the wielders from the weapon's extreme heat.
The Sunforge Lockbuster is an artifact forged by the Sunforge and was commissioned by Queen Khessa. It is a thin steel key with a golden top that radiates with hot magic that turns the inner workings of a lock into ash upon being inserted. Following the evacuation of Lux Aurea, it has been lost to the wilderness.
True-sight serums are potions that, once applied to the user's eyes, can strip away all illusions and see things for what they really are. These serums were originally created before the fall of Elarion by the Oracles of Ophidia through extracting venom from the harvested fangs of Eyeless Vipers on moonless nights. However, a single stray beam of moonlight can taint the serum, and one dose of a tainted serum can drive a person into complete insanity. Applying the serum is immensely painful and appears to be hot to the touch, whilst emitting a dark purple smoke for a brief moment after making contact with the user's eyes. However, it is unable to break the enchantment applied to the magic mirror.
Queen Pothos Ring
The Queen Pothos Ring is a wooden ring with a carving of a pothos leaf on it. Imbued with earth magic, it can be used to sprout tiny leaves from a wearer's fingertips, allowing them to breathe through their hands.
Viren's coins are unique containers stashed away inside a coin pouch, which he carries with him at all times. His coins contain the souls of Moonshadow Elves, including Runaan. Imprisoning a soul is achieved by using a dark magic spell, which slowly drains a person. Once a soul is inside a coin, its life force is trapped between life and death and can no longer be fully detected by other magic.
