How does Incense work?
Incense is a type of consumable that buffs all nearby players, which could include Party members or random players (e.g., at an Event or World Boss fight). Players within an active Incense's effect radius will have an Incense icon above their Skill bar:
Players can begin crafting Incense at the Alchemist starting at Level 45. Note that Incense recipes require more components than Elixir ones do. As a player levels up, they'll get access to stronger Incense recipes.
Incense are split up into 3 types, and a player may have 1 of each type active. In addition, players can also have 1 Elixir active with the Incense.
