ALCHEMY MADE EASY

ALCHEMY 101

Okay, alchemy is a breeze and can be a lot of fun doing experiments.


Requirements:

(Alchemy skill is NOT required 
for brewing with a recipe!)

Full set of alchemy equipment 
(6 pieces)
Ingredients
Recipes
At least Chapter 3 to brew
 
Steps for Standard Brewing  
(With A Recipe) 
1. If you haven't done it already, make sure all alchemy equipment and ingredients are in the mage brewer's inventory.  Select mage.
2. Open recipe book. 
3. Use "Table of Contents" link to scan recipes or flip thru one page at a time until you find the recipe. 
4. Click "Assemble".  (You can brew up to 3 portions of each recipe by clicking 2 more times.) 
5. Advance sundial by at least 4 hours.
6. Click "Rest".  (You should hear a gurgle as the recipe brews.) 
7. At the confirmation alert, click "OK".
That's all there is to it! 
 
 
Steps for Experimental Brewing  
(No Recipe) 
1-2. Repeat Steps 1 and 2 from Standard Brewing (above). 
3. Use "Table of Contents" link to scan to experimental page.  It is always the last page in the recipe book. 
4. Drag salt to the mortar & pestle. 
5. Drag a fortifier into the mixture. (Regia for strong recipes, Fortis for weak recipes.) 
6. Drag in a powder and/or a secondary liquid, as required.
7. Drag in a metal, if required by recipe. 
8-10. Repeat Steps 5 thru 7 from Standard Brewing (above).
If the brew was successful, there will be a gurgle.  If not, there may be an explosion which may destroy 1 or more pieces of alchemy equipment. 
 
 
Tips for Successful Experimental Brewing 
  • An alchemy skill of at least 50 is needed for a 50/50 chance of success.  The higher the better.  80 is usually sufficient.
  • Once an experiment has been successful, a page will be entered in the recipe book and it can be auto-assembled just like all the other recipes. (Unfortunately, if you find a recipe scroll later on, you won't be able to use it to mix 3 at a time.)
  • Try to have replacement equipment available when you do experimental brewing in case a piece gets broken. 
  • Even though a recipe page appears in the book for a successful experiment, the auto-assemble may still explode at any time.

Experimental brewing can be a real rush if you attempt it with low alchemy skill.  Try it!
