8 books in and we finally have some potential uses besides "sharp stick" to speculate on for this fey metal! According to the litch, elementum is one of the most magically active metals in existence, but we had no information on why that was important until book 8. The two uses hinted at so far are: Golem Capable of containing shield enchantment Two obvious questions right off the bat: A. What type and rank of golem can be created? (reminder: golem ranks are: Inferior, Lesser, Minor, Intermediate, Advanced, Major, Greater, Grand, and Supreme) B. What other enchantments can only be placed on magically active materials?
