Is it only when the spell description doesn't say "can be reused"? Does this mean you need a new flute each time you want to cast Voice of the Mountain?
exactly, this helps balance the power of the spells, even though it is more fiddly bits to take account of. One thing my players are starting to do is research new spells. I help them understand the appropriate level and power of the spell, but then I take a close look at spells of this type and level to be sure there is a spell component that is of similar value and rarity to keep the spell more balanced. I don't let variants that have no components even at less power be developed, as that goes against the spirit of the system.You'll need a new flute every time you want to cast Voice of the Mountain with the bonus in Power Level granted by using an Ingredient, yes.
Using an Ingredient is optional.
