The alchemy daily crafting writs includes 2 tasks:
1) crafting the potion with certain ingredients.
2) acquiring (or having) 3 of a certain resource.
I had understood that the ingredients for the potion are consumed, but not the one that is to be acquired, that one would just need to be available. However, over time, my quantity of mudcrab chitins kept decreasing and I have been wondering how they disappear until earlier today: 3 pieces were consumed together with the daily writs. And that's a surprise to me because other ingredients that I have in small amount (less than 10) don't seem to decrease over time, although they're also of the type to be acquired.
So, all in all, now I'm confused, and that's my question: For daily alchemy writs, are the 3 pieces of resource to be acquired also consumed atop of the ingredients of the recipe? Or not?
I'm out of my mind, feel free to leave a message... PC/NA
