Processed Good A processed good is any item that is used in the creation of another item but is not useable in and of itself. For example: an ingot, a plank, a roll of fabric or leather, these are processed goods because they are used in the creation of other goods and are not useable in and of themselves.

Note: You do not drop potions, beverages, or food when you die, even though these items are produced by the processing tree.
