Variable components

Variable components are uncommon materials used in the Invention skill.

Cheap Sources[edit | edit source]

The cheapest sources are harralander tar (230) and pure essence (41). However, harralander tar produces 2.89 to 7.7 times as many variable components on average (depending on junk chance reduction). Thus, it can be a better time investment while maintaining a relatively negligible difference in the cost per material obtained. (Use the cost per material or efficiency calculation in the linked calculator below for more specifics.)

Should you choose to use the Rune essence mine as a source for pure essence, it is important to note that you can't disassemble there.
