A Matrix is a miscellaneous item that allows qualified smiths to enchant Amber weapons, Amber armor, Madness weapons, or Madness armor during the creation process.


Taking Amber or Madness Ore to Dumag gro-Bonk or Cutter, respectively, will allow them to forge leveled weapons and armor for the Hero. Giving them a matrix as well will give the forged item a leveled enchantment. To create a magical item, the appropriate matrix and amount of material are needed. Each matrix has a type of material and type of weapon or armor associated with it. Matrices are not interchangeable.

For example, an Amber Gauntlets Matrix and two pieces of amber will allow the Amber smith, Dumag gro-Bonk, to create a magical version of the gauntlets with Fortify Hand-to-Hand and Marksman enchantments


Finding a matrix begins The Antipodean Hammer quest.
