Vials were small glass containers that were used to hold liquids and powders. They could be used in laboratories to conduct experiments or to transport these substances.[2]


A typical vial could hold up to 4 oz (118 ml) of liquid. Outside of the laboratory, vials were most commonly used to store and transport acids, antitoxins, perfumes, poisons, and potions.[1]

Vials were essential in laboratories,[2] and were also integral components of herbalism kits and poisoner's kits.[1]

A variety of vials was available for sale through Aurora's Whole Realms Catalogue, along with matching corks and other laboratory glass containers produced in Urmlaspyr by the glass-blowers guild.[2]
