Potion Ingredients

Here is a list of all of the potion ingredients available in the game, taken from the Construction Set. Most ingredients have four effects, though you may be able to see only one or two (maybe none if your Alchemy skill is low). Some have only one or two. If your alchemy skill is high enough, you can gain the first effect simply by eating the ingredient. Second, third and fourth effects will require alchemical equipment of some sort.

The base value is how much the ingredient is worth. If you try to sell it to a merchant, this number will be lowered based upon your Mercantile skill, the merchant's Mercantile skill and how much the merchant likes or dislikes you. If the merchant buys ingredients at all, you will be able to get at least one gold for it.

The entries with colored backgrounds are negative effects. As you can see, most ingredients have at least one negative effect. When you combine ingredients that have one effect in common, that effect will be one of the effects of the resulting potion. So the trick is to combine ingredients that have positive effects in common, but no negative effects in common.
