This nugget, as a popular Tamriel sage likes to say, was found in a recent posting I came across. It is worth sharing with novice Alchemists.
A research paper by Royal Kitsune outlines an efficient way to learn the alchemical properties of the all the known reagents and suggested reagents combinations to minimize the use of more popular reagents needed for triple attribute potions.
I have verified the list on a new alchemist. This document expands on the original post by identifies the varies traits learned, corrects some spelling mistakes, and added one missing reagent combination for Columbine.
When discussing the topic of Alchemy, the old phrase “what does not kill you, makes you stronger” comes to mind. After downing a dreadfully tasting potion and feeling it burn your innards on the way down, a powerful effect is required to make it worth it.
This tome reveals the mysteries of alchemy. Alchemy can save money by crafting your own and bypassing the middleman, potions can last longer by unlocking the “Medicinal Use” passive. Ability slots can be freed up by replacing ability effects with potion equivalents. Completionist can unlock more achievement points by completing the alchemy achievement points. Selling potions can be profitable. The solvent determines the level of the potion and reagents can be found all over Tamriel and Obilivion. The intial trait can be determined by using the raw reagent but making potions with other reagents will identify those with compatible traits. Finally, a list of popular beginner recipes is also provided.
