[edit] In General

Beast items are all researched in the arcana. Most also require a shrine before they can be researched and to be available after the research is complete. Beast coms can't research more items at the same time then there are arcanas. This is different for weapons, which are spread over several buildings for beasts.

[edit] Basic Items

The first column. These items require an arcana or become unavailable.

Mana Crystal

Slowly replenishes your mana, the ammo of the beast. This gives the weapon effectively unlimited ammo, but don't expect it to regenerate quickly. You may still pick up mini-mana crystals from fallen humans and NPCs. Also, a mini-mana crystal picked up from smaller NPCs like chiprels replenish the same amount of mana compared to one from a larger unit.

Frenzy

Quickly replenishes your stamina for a few seconds. Use it to flee from the battle, get somewhere fast, combine it with sacrifice for a deadly assault. It is most commonly used in melee, but make sure that you have a lot of stamina when it the effect runs out.

[edit] Entropy Items

These items are researched in the arcana. They require an entropy shrine.

Sixth Sense

Marks nearby enemies with a ray of light. Not really necessary in open areas, but great in dense foliage or around difficult terrain. You will rarely be ambushed from cover. It doesn't make enemies show up on the map. It is also worthy to note that your allies cant see the rays of light you see.

Snare

Interesting. Throw it at enemies to slow them down. When used well it's a lethal tool. You can carry at most 3 and they stack. Certain people like to combine it with blaze because blaze does a tremendous amount of damage to unit when all of its shots hit. Very similar to the Immobilizer.

[edit] Strata Items

These items are researched in the arcana. They require a strata shrine,so if the arcana is destroyed, strata items are not disebled.

Storm Shield

You receive no damage from radius effects for a total of 10 seconds, however, this does not mean you can survive your your own sacrifice. It prevents damage from Pulse Cannons, Mortars, Launchers, Catapults, Land Mines, Demolition Packs, Ember, Blaze, Fireball, Sacrifice and Fire Wards.

Mist Shroud

Makes you transparent(not invisible) for 15 seconds. The usefulness depends on the map (background colour, snow is the best), the intelligence and experience of the enemy team and whether there are sensors deployed nearby or not. If the enemy commander or officers mark you, there is big red ray of light marking you so the mist effect is lowered a lot. Your opponent cannot see what "melee strike" you are on; this helps slightly. Towers won't attack you unless there is a sensor nearby (although this is slightly bugged).

[edit] Fire Items

These items are researched in the arcana. They require a fire shrine,so if arcana is lost fire items are not disebled. These are both radius damage, thus Storm Shield prevents damage from them. For example: a Storm-Shielded scavenger recieves no damage from fire wards. In general, you dont have to worry about beast tech being radius damage or not, but on 4 team games it can be important.

Sacrifice

A great tool in destroying enemy towers and buildings. Activate it and after exactly 10 seconds you explode. The idea behind is that try to be near enemies or enemy buildings at the moment of the explosion to damage them. The tricky part is getting where you want to blow yourself up alive and stay alive long enough to blow yourself up. If you master this, you can blow up nearly anything. Most buildings are not destroyed by one sacrifice, but when done in group it can quickly level a base. They kill all unshielded towers and spires in one direct hit though. TO help with timing, activate frenzy at about the same time. This will give you a timer to go by.

Fire Wards

A magical ward. Place it on the ground, it explodes when enemies come near it,however it takes a time to activete it's exploding magic 2 seconds(not sure). NPC also make fire wards explode. Your team can deploy at most 25 ward at the same time, so place them well.They damage buildings too when they explode, including your buildings. Your teammates can receive damage from the explosions too on some servers. Very similar to land mines in function, however disrupters can remove them. Human units can block the wards, reducing their effectiveness.humans can destroy him ith relocator.

[edit] Never added Items

Before XR, SFE, SEP, Ex2 and even before 2.00 were items planned to add, but actually never were available ingame.

Mana Restore

This was probably meant to be instantly replenish mana. The picture can be found in the XR gui showing the current Mana.
