A crystallized ingredient is the version of elemental substances introduced with the Wrath of the Lich King expansion. These compare directly to Motes, which were introduced with The Burning Crusade expansion.
Unlike most Primal ingredients, Eternal ingredients can universally be converted back to their original components in the same fashion that enchanting essences can be converted from lesser to greater and back.
The types are:
10 of any crystallized element can be made into an Eternal (of the same element), i.e. 10 → 1 (You need only have 10 in inventory, they need not all be in one stack).
The reverse conversion is done by right-clicking the item.
- The engineering item, , also can gather crystallized ingredients in Northrend from Gas clouds.
- The mote is the (Burning Crusade) equivalent of crystallized ingredients.
