Alchemy Crafting Guide

This Alchemy Crafting Guide for the Elder Scrolls Online, is for you who never figured out how easy it is to make potions and poisons in ESO.

In this post, I will cover the basics for Alchemy crafting and link to the specific Potion & Poison recipes.
Alchemy Crafting is not only great for making your own potions, but also for the daily crafting writs, for which you get flowers that sell really well.
If the subheading says [Crafting Writ] that means this is only a 2 reagent version (cheaper).

Solvents & Reagents.

For Alchemy Crafting in ESO, you need Solvents and Reagents.
Solvents are divided into 2 groups, one is for Poisons and the other for Potions. Solvents are also divided into levels, and you need specific solvents to craft level 3, 10, or 50 potions, all the way up to Champion Level 150.


While you can find Solvents for Potions in any body of water or river, solvents for potions are found on mobs.
Most of them are just for leveling up your alchemy crafting, but for CP150 you will need Lorkhan’s Tears for Potions and Alkahest for Poisons.
They are easy to find and cheap to buy if you are too lazy to find them yourself.

Reagents on the other hand can be used in both potions and poisons, they can be used with any solvent, as it’s the solvent that determines what level the potion or poison will be crafted in.


Alchemy Crafting Guide [how to].

As this is an Alchemy Crafting Guide, I better tell you how to actually make the concoctions.
In all major cities, you will find crafting stations, this includes an alchemy crafting station. Find it and when you get close you can interact with it.

Now you have to choose what solvent you want to use. Make sure it matches the level of potion you want to make.
If the solvent you want to use is red, you have to level up your alchemy or if it is leveled up, then remember to put skill points into it.

Next, you have to choose what reagents you want to use.
When starting out you can only combine two, but as you level up the skill line you can add a third reagent and make your potions even stronger.
With a high enough alchemy level, you will be able to get 4 potions or 16 poisons while using only one set of materials.
Now you just have to follow the recipes provided or try and figure them out yourself.

I always list the cheapest ingredients first, it’s just funny that it also seems to be in alphabetic order.
