After inserting the item into the player character (by clicking the UI), the item added another slot in the player's inventory. (Default key bind to open the slot in PC: '). Player can insert rare item (unique if allocated Blood Crucible's skill Alternate History) into the slot, corrupted or not, and the Blood Crucible acts like an incubator that after certain Scourge monster kills in the Nightmare realm, adding one beneficial Scourge implicit and one detrimental implicit modifiers into the item by default. The tiers of these implicit can be affected by Anomalous Aura and Stabilising Energy skills of the Crucible, so that when the item is transformed, the beneficial implicit have a chance to be one tier higher for using Anomalous Aura or the detrimental implicit is one tier lower for using Stabilising Energy.

Depends on item level, item can be transformed up to 3 times. The item would have a tag "Scourged (Tier #)" on the bottom on the item description to show the item has been transformed how many times. Note that item that shown "Scourged (Tier 1)" or "Scourged (Tier 2)" can be dropped from Scourge monsters. Those item cannot be transformed 3 times despite the Scourge implicit is not added by the player using Blood Crucible.

Upon entering map, the player would received another quest item Dream FurnaceDream FurnaceThe minds of men are but motes

by entering nightmare realm from map for the first time, which adds another slot into the Blood Crucible UI to Scourge maps. Some Blood Crucible skill are in fact affecting map via the Dream Furnace slot.
