In alchemy, to craft potions, you will need two groups of items - Solvents and Reagents.

There's a total of 7 different Solvents, and each of them define the quality of the resulting potion - the better Solvent used in the production, the more powerful the resulting potion created, and the higher level is required for you to be able to consume it. The below table describes all Solvents available in the game, with their required level:

Explanation

By simply finding a given Reagent, you won't be able to see its properties yet. To discover them, you have to combine and mix them with other Reagents, with similar properties - you cannot mix one Reagent contradicting the other, for instance the one increasing the weapon critical chance with the one reducing it, and so on.

By looking at the above table with all those Reagent's characteristics, you should have no problems with discovering their hidden properties. Below you can find a few examples of mixtures:

  • Bugloss + Columbine + Dragonthorn -> a Potion restoring Health, Stamina and Magicka.
  • Bugloss + Luminous Russula + Water Hyacinth -> a Potion restoring a huge amount of missing Health.
  • Columbine + Lady's Smock + Water Hyacinth -> a Potion increasing the spell critical chance, while restoring some Health and Magicka.

There are dozens of possible recipes, that is why there's no point in listing them here - especially because all you have to do is to mix Reagents with similar properties. All you have to remember is to not to mix Reagents contradicting each other (like was mentioned above) and try to make potions with properties that supplement each other and will be of use to you. There's no point to make a potion increasing your speed and Magicka, if you are playing a character fighting in melee range (so you won't be using the speed buff) and having little to no use of magicka, because all your skills require stamina.
