The Motes of Enchantment system

Introduced with Update 21, The Mordor Expansion, the Motes of Enchantment System allows players, by using the Flame of Ancalamír-icon.png Flame of Ancalamír, to deconstruct items containing "Light of Eärendil" (explained below) into Motes of Enchantment -- the motes are then used as barter items with the High-enchanter (Elf-Smith) and others found in various places on the Plateau of Gorgoroth, in Allegiance Halls and in Eryn Lasgalen and the Dale-lands.
Motes of Enchantment automatically go into your Barter Wallet, at the bottom as a "Currency," with a "currency cap" of 10,000,
Players who have more Motes than the cap will be unable to Disenchant items until they lower their Motes of Enchantment count below the cap.
Narthavron, master smith of the Noldor, located in the Udûn Foothold, explains the system to you in the Quest: The Ash of Gorgoroth. The Flame of Ancalamír-icon.png Flame of Ancalamír is purchased from his assistant standing nearby, the High-enchanter (Elf-Smith). Once acquired, the flame is not consumed. It remains in your inventory. You can link it to a Quick-slot for easy access if you so desire.
  • To use the Flame, right-click on the flame, and then left-click on the item you wish to destroy.
The dialog will then appear: "Are you sure you want to DESTROY the <item name> to extract <number> Motes of Enchantment?"
  • Only items containing containing "Light of Eärendil" can be deconstructed!
Generally speaking, these are Quest rewards and mob drops within Instances in Mordor. Landscape creatures do not drop items which can be deconstructed. Ash itself in varying quanities, as well as items, are often found in Gorgoroth Steel-bound Lootbox-icon.png Gorgoroth Steel-bound Lootbox, Box 12 (store)-icon.png Rare Mordor Treasure, and the like.
The High-enchanter (Elf-Smith) also sells recipes for each Crafting Profession to craft Enchanted Gorgoroth Adamant-icon.png Enchanted Gorgoroth Adamant for deconstruction
To purchase these recipes requires Westemet Master of the Guild status with the appropriate guild, and Doomfold Crafting ability in the matching profession. These recipes are Bind on Acquire and have an 18 hour cooldown.
