Alchemy Guide

Welcome to the Alchemy Guide for ESO. In this guide I will explain how to level up your Alchemy level fast and efficient and how you can discover all the traits of the flowers.

Overview:

What is Alchemy

Alchemy is used to craft powerful Potions and Poisons that can be used in combat. To craft them you need to farm Reagents (Flowers) and Solvents.

How do I level up Alchemy

Inspiration

All crafting skill lines are leveled up via gain of “Inspiration”, which is the “crafting experience”.
Inspiration gain can’t be increased with Ambrosia Drinks, Crown Experience Scrolls or other experience boosting methods. There are only two ways to increase inspiration gain:

  • 10% ESO Plus Membership
  • 20% “Inspiration Boost” Champion Point Passive (acquired by spending 30 CP in the “Tower” CP tree, so you need to have 90 CP)

Leveling Alchemy

There is only one way to level up Alchemy, all you need to do is craft potions or poisons. I do recommend farming or buying cheap flowers and then craft potions till you can invest another point in the Solvent Proficiency and get higher quality Solvents. Keep using the same flowers but just change the Solvents and you will be level 50 in 15 minutes.

Amount of Solvents needed to level up Alchemy (without any experience boost):

  • 22 Natural Water
  • 43 Pristine Water
  • 48 Cleansed Water
  • 60 Filtered Water
  • 66 Purified Water
  • 20 Cloud Mist
  • 0 Star Dew
  • 0 Lorkhan’s Tears

You will need about 520 Flowers in total to get Alchemy from level 1 to level 50.
