The art of alchemy consists of brewing potions. Alchemists can also make some of the oils used by the other trade skills, but brewing potions is the bulk of an alchemists work. Potions consist of two main ingredients. These are an essence and a key ingredient. Essences are made by combining several ingredients and pouring the mixture into a glass vial. This is done at the Alchemists Table. If successful, the essence will be placed in the player’s inventory. If unsuccessful, the recipe ingredients will be destroyed, however the player will get back the glass vial. Potions are made by combining an essence and various ingredients along with an empty flask. This is also done at the Alchemists Table. If successful, the potion will be placed in the players inventory along with an empty glass vial. If unsuccessful, the recipe ingredients will be destroyed, however the player will recover both the glass vial and empty flask. Wisdom (60%) and Intelligence (40%) are key abilities for Alchemy

Notes: All essences require one vial. All Potions require one flask. Prices listed in parenthasies are the prices to purchase the component directly to the left of the price in the potion shops in cities and towns. These can also be made though brewing if you do not wish to spend the money. They are made available in stores for convenience and time savings. Potions with higher caster level will have longer durations than the old potions created with the old table. New potions include Potion of Flame and Potion of Charm (I thank Edix for that one )
