Well, that's exactly how a wild mage *would* do it, using wildfire to replace
all those esoteric componets that the rules call for to enchant an item. All
he'd need is the expensive chair required by the Enchant An Item spell
itself.

That's probably what gives the Arcane their monopoly: They know what the
esoteric items are and where to get them. As they haven't told anyone, it's
in no library to be discovered thru that form of research, and pure R&D has
had less than perfect results: Artifurnaces, Furnaces, Grand Helms, Life
Jammers, etc.

The K'r'r'r seem to have improved on the basic design of the Arcane's Minor
Helm, but that's about it.

Of course, a jeweler can make minor helms, all he needs is a Q'nidar, a lot
of fire, and his tools. And maybe the Flow, I'm not sure which firey death of
the Q'nidar gives minor helms, and which crystal balls, off hand.
