There were several types of oils in the Realms. Typically, lamp oil was referred to as simply "oil", and was used primarily to fuel lamps and lanterns.[3][5]


Regular lamp oil usually came in clay flasks that could hold up to 1 pint (473 ml) of oil. This amount was sufficient to power most typical lamps and lanterns for 6 hours. If a creature was covered in oil, its flammability increased the efficacy of attacks with fire upon it considerably.[3][5]

Flasks of pure whale oil, which did not exhale any unpleasant scents when burned, were available for purchase through Aurora's Whole Realms Catalogue.[3]
