  • Shapes, Components, and Modifiers will become locked again if you no longer meet the requirements and have not either unlocked the spell part or read the corresponding entry in the compendium.
    • These only become available when the spell part is available to be unlocked. Unlocking the related spell part when the compendium has the article available to read or reading the article (without unlocking the spell part) permanently unlocks the entry.
  • Unlocking spell parts by commands will not unlock their entries in the compendium.
    • This can permanently lock away the entries unless you use commands to remove access to the spell parts and unlock them through the Occulus.
  • Using commands to set your magic level will not instantly unlock the entries that come at those levels.
