Consumables are items that, once used, trigger a certain reaction, such as salvaging materials, learning a recipe, or obtaining a bundle. Once used, a consumable disappears from the character's inventory. Permanent consumables are consumables that have an unlimited amount of uses. These are often in the form of endless tonics and bundles such as the Unbreakable Choir Bell.

Stacks of certain items, such as Essences of Luck, Snowflakes, or Transmutation Charges can be consumed all at once by right-clicking on them and choosing the option "Consume All".
