Alchemy is a crafting mechanic that allows you to turn your collection of herbs, wild mushrooms, crystals, and monster components into potions, elixirs, grenades, and coatings.

Basic process[edit | edit source]

Alchemy can be divided into two different crafting processes: creating consumables (potions, elixirs, grenades and coatings), and creating Alchemical Extracts (sublimates, salts, essences, ashes, vitriols and suspensions).

Crafting[edit | edit source]

Extracts can be crafted by combining three of the same ingredient (e.g. combining three Mugwort to create Salt of Mugwort). Consumables can be crafted by unlocking a recipe and combining the two specified extracts - one that is made from a specific ingredient, and one that can be any of a type of extract (e.g. combine Salts of Rogue's Morsel and any suspension to create a Potion of Healing). You should choose which Extract you use in the generic slot carefully as you may need it as a specific component in a different recipe.

Recipes[edit | edit source]

Using the "Extract All Ingredients" button will convert all your raw ingredients into extracts (each ingredient converts into only one type of extract, so do not worry about wasting ingredients). Doing so will unlock the related extracts and consumable recipes, allowing you to then craft your discovered consumables (and manually craft discovered extracts). Recipes can also sometimes be unlocked when collecting new ingredients, or when reading certain books or notes.

Finding ingredients[edit | edit source]

Ingredients can be found out in the wild while exploring, or bought from some traders. Once an ingredient is harvested from the overworld, it will not regenerate. Some good places to search for ingredients in Act One include the Apothecary and Apothecary's Cellar in the Blighted Village, the Waning Moon in Act Two, and Bonecloak's Apothecary and cellar in Act Three.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • An issue exists where the recipes for extracts can be inconsistently unlocked, making ingredients unusable even if the player possesses three of them. When this happens, the relevant extract recipe can usually be forced to unlock by dropping the ingredient onto the ground, and then picking it back up.
