Alchemy | Additional info The Witcher Guide

If you have the necessary base and ingredients to mix a potion, just click its name on the recipe list, and then click "Mix". Alchemy rules are quite simple, but you should remember a few things.

The alchemy base is always a kind of strong alcohol. Its quality is described by the number of ingredients you can mix it with. Alcohol you buy for 20 orens lets you mix 3 ingredients, those for 30 orens - 4 ingredients, and those for 50 orens - 5 ingredients. Remember that you can use the worst kind of alcohol to prepare some White Gull, which itself is a high-quality, strong alcohol.

Ingredients that are placed in the potion automatically can then be changed to their cheaper versions, if you will. For example, use Ghoul Blood instead of White Vinegar when mixing a White Gull or a Swallow.

The second column to the left indicates the dominant substance contained in the given ingredient: Rebis (Reb), Vitriol (Vit), Aether (Aet), Quebrith (Que), Hydragenum (Hyd), Vermilion (Ver).

Third column shows minor substances (if present): Albedo (Alb), Nigredo (Nig), Rubedo (Rub). If all the ingredients in a potion have the same minor substance, the potion gets additional properties. Rubedo potions speed up vitality regeneration, Nigredo increases attack, and Albedo contain less toxins.

The fourth column (Source) gives you hints on where to look for an ingredient - be it monster's body or a plant. In case of minerals, the sources are difficult to tell, and include shops, chests, wardrobes etc.

The last two columns (B and S) give you knowledge about the item's price - the price you Buy it for, and the price you Sell it for. If you want to save money, stick to mixing potions that you can sell for less than 20 orens and which are easy to obtain.

It's clear that alchemical ingredients that can be sold for a good price are mostly obtained from certain monsters' bodies: White Vinegar, Albar's Crystals, Ginatz's Acid, Pyrite, Naezan Salts, as well as minerals, such as Calcium equum, Phosphorus, Lunar Shards, Optima mater, Fifth Essence, Quicksilver Solution, Sulfur, Powdered Pearl, Wine Stone, Ducal Water. Especially Ginatz's Acid is a good source of money, as Drowners and Drowned Dead come in great numbers in the swamps.
