This spell extracts the vile and poisonous essences from a corpse. You probably don't want to drink the results. The type of the potion produced corresponds roughly to the effects of eating said corpse.

Fulsome Distillation extracts essences from a corpse into a potion. The potions produced are mostly used as ammunition for Evaporate. The potions produced will be identified if necessary.

Corpse Potion
Yellow wasp Slowing
Red wasp Paralysis
Clean Water
Contaminated Confusion
Poisonous Poison
Mutagenic Mutation
Rot-Inducing Decay

Additionally, monsters with sufficiently strong poison attacks (such as water moccasins or scorpions) will give potions of strong poison, while contaminated corpses which weigh 90.0 aum or greater (includes large monsters like ogres, giants, sharks, etc.) will give potions of degeneration. Corpses which are both contaminated and poisonous will give potions of poison regardless of size.

The spell will fail if you are levitating over a corpse without controlled flight ("You can't reach the corpse!").

Warning! Casting this spell on an orc corpse is considered desecration, which may cause problems if you are a Beoghite!

Tips and Tricks


Think thrice before worshipping Fedhas: Bottling up a corpse will place you under penance...


This spell was removed in 0.12. In earlier versions, potions produced also depended on spell power and whether or not the corpse was rotten: rotten corpses produced 'better' potions (e.g. decay instead of confusion), while all potions had a chance to be downgraded at low spell power.
