More Skyrim Alchemy

Probably renting Skyrim later today, if I can find a copy (not having luck in that department), but I've been looking over information like mad to see what I'm missing in the mean time.

Grinding Alchemy is actually fairly simple, but time consuming. Alchemy skill increases in proportion to the value of the potion made. Since potions made with different items at different skills have different values, its hard to make a comprehensive list. The simplest way to grind it is to find a alchemy vendor with an alchemist table (I have heard the one by Whiterun is nice), buy up ingredients, make expensive potions, sell them, rest until their stock and gold are reset, and repeat.

In the beginning you will be more limited to what potions you can make, because you will not know most of the alchemy component's effects. As you grind, it will become easier to make potions (because you know more ingredient effects) but harder to level up (because of diminishing returns/higher xp requirements). A list of ingredients and effects is at the bottom of this post. The best potions are the most expensive (when you combine but before you craft it gives you a price). Potions with two or more effects are much more expensive than potions with single effects. Do yourself a favor and grind speechcraft at the same time.


Nice Potions to Grind (Some prices may vary; values are what the alchemy craft gives you, not the actual sell price)
Fortify Health (Value: 197; Ingredients: Blue Mountain Flower, Wheat)
Fortify Magicka (Value: 186; Ingredients: Red Mountain Flower, Briar Heart)
Damage Stamina Regen (Value: 285; Ingredients: Histcarp, Wheat)
Resist Frost (Value: 156; Ingredients: Purple Mountain Flower, Thistle Branch)
Resist Poison (Value: 167; Ingredients; Garlic, Troll Fat)
Damage Health: (Value: 226; Ingredients Red Mountain Flower, River Betty)

Damage Stamina Regen (Value: 1000-4000; Ingredients: Giant's Toe, Wheat)

Consequently; a smart alchemist makes potions that help him fight...that's the whole point of the discipline. Enjoy!
