Molten wax is a semi-hot, commercially worthless, and sticky liquid. Items containing or covered in wax are waxen or waxy. Drinking it will increase the subject's temperature by 100°. It weighs 0.5 lbs per dram.

If a creature in the same phase as the wax steps on it, they must make a strength and agility save of difficulty 10 + drams/100 * 5. If they fail this save, they will become stuck for a maximum of 12 turns with a strength save of 10 * drams/100 every turn to break free.

It is one of the few liquids that can never be required in a cure for any illness or fungal infection.

If a pool of primarily wax is on the ground and the temperature drops below 25°(the base room temperature), the wax will cool into a Wax block.pngwax block if the volume is greater than or equal to 200 drams, or a Wax nodule.pngwax nodule if smaller. [1]
