The Apothecary is a mystical place, because no one really knows how they end up there, only that they were somewhere else, and then they woke up in the.. mystical place..
Players who lose a match in the Arena are carted off to the Apothecary on a stretcher where they are unable to do anything for a hour, unless someone very helpful uses a special item, known as the Bone Candle. Bone Candles can reduce the length of time that a player is unconscious for by 15 minutes by kneeling next to the player's bed in the Apothecary and lighting the candle. There is another variation of the candle called the "Spine Candle" which reduces the time a player spends in the Apothecary by 45 minutes. While you can view these items in your inventory, you will only be able to "use" them in the Apothecary. If you don't have any, you be presented with the button below when visiting the sleepy-folk.
The Bone Candle can be purchased from Hettie's shop. The Spine Candle is an item that can only be crafted by players who have chosen the Necromancy Profession. Both items can be listed on the Black Market.
