Divinity Original Sin 2 features hundreds of various recipes that allow you to create useful items, however, there are some of them that are useful (and can be prepared by a player) from the beginning of the game. On this page of the guide, you can find descriptions of 10 crafting recipes that are worth checking out. Each recipe has a list of required materials that are necessary to make it. Moreover, we've explained how to use the crafted item.
- Medium Healing Potion
- Nailbomb Grenade
- Chemical Warfare Grenade
- 4x Lockpick
- Winter Boots
- Poison Bottle
- Poison Damage
- Holy Hand Grenade
- Poison Bottle
- Slowdown Arrowhead or Poisoned Arrowhead
Medium Healing Potion
Minor Healing Potion + Minor Healing Potion = Medium Healing Potion (+140 Vitality)
You can combine two most basic healing potions and get one that is much better when it comes to healing.
You can switch a "Minor Healing Potion" with "Medium Healing Potion" and get "Healing Potion" that restores 330 Vitality or you can use 2x "Healing Potion" and create "Huge Healing Potion" that restores 870 Vitality.
Empty Grenade + Nails = Nailbomb Grenade
A simple recipe for a grenade that deals good physical damage and inflicts Bleeding status.
Both ingredients are cheap or can be easily stolen.
Chemical Warfare Grenade
Empty Canister + Intestines = Chemical Warfare Grenade
Allows you to create a grenade that destroys magic armor and inflicts Diseased status. This effect lowers character's Constitution attribute (reduces health points by 21%) and lowers their damage by 35%.
Intestines item can be often found in corpses of defeated enemies, you can also buy it from traders. Because of that, the grenade is easy to craft.
Hammer + Nails = 4x Lockpick
A very simple recipe for a Lockpick. Remember, that Hammer doesn't disappear after the process of crafting - this means that one unit of this item allows you to create an infinite amount of Lockpicks (as long as you have Nails).
Any of the shoes + Nails = Winter Boots (invulnerable to a surface with Frozen effect)
Thanks to this recipe you can upgrade any of the shoes by inflicting a status that gives you invulnerability to Frozen effect - a character that runs on a Frozen surface won't trip.
Zaikk's Talon + any of the Healing Potions = Poison Bottle
Thanks to this combination you can poison any of the Healing Potions - from now on it will poison, instead of heal. This recipe is very useful if you have an Undead in your team because they can only heal by using poisons - they will be able to have their own healing potions.
Zaikk's Talon can sometimes be found in enemy corpses, you can also buy it in a shop with crafting materials. The quality of the potion with poison depends on quality of a Healing Potion used in the process.
Ooze Barrel + any of the weapons = Poison Damage
Allows you to poison a weapon which gives it a few additional poison damage. You should remember that this effect doesn't overwrite other effects - this means that a weapon can deal both fire and poison damage at the same time.
Ooze Barrel can be used unlimited amount of time - you should place a barrel to one of backpacks of your companions so you can use whenever you want.
Poison damage go up with the character's level, starting from the moment of inflicting that effect on a weapon.
Holy Hand Grenade
Sovereign's Orb + Pixie Dust / Starfish = Holy Hand Grenade
A unique grenade that restores health (healing effect). What is more, this is an extremally strong weapon against Undead in characters with Decaying status because this grenade can deal a lot of damage to them.
Sovereign's Orb can be sometimes found in bodies of defeated enemies, you can also buy it from traders that sell crafting materials - the same goes for Pixie Dust. Starfish can be found on beaches and can be bought from traders.
Ooze Barrel + Empty Potion Bottle = Poison Bottle
Allows you to create your own Poison Bottles that are useful for healing Undead characters and getting additional gold - each Small Poison Bottle is worth 20 gold.
Ooze Barrel can be used unlimited amount of time.
Slowdown Arrowhead or Poisoned Arrowhead
Oil Barrel + Arrowhead = Slowdown Arrowhead
Ooze Barrel + Arrowhead = Poisoned Arrowhead
Allows you to create a special Slowdown Arrowhead that can be used for creating a Slowdown Arrow. The second recipe allows you to create a Poisoned Arrowhead that can be used for creating Poisoned Arrow.
You simply have to combine Slowdown / Poisoned Arrowhead with Arrow Shaft and create an arrow that you want.
Both Oil Barrel and Ooze Barrel can be used unlimited amount of time.
