Welcome to the Skyrim Apothecary Society. The Society has spent years researching these special alchemical ingredients and are now ready to pass the knowledge along. Alora at the Alchemist's Hut in the Rift can help get you started, or you can craft yourself the Apothecary Badge and equipment at the forge yourself. Benficial and detrimental ingredients are handled with different tools and then mixed separately. You must prepare your compounds first! Once your compounds are prepared you can then cook your mixtures into the appropriate poition, elixir, tonic, or other.
As you gain more knowledge you will be able to create your own research notes to unlock more potent conconctions from your compounds. The Crucible, Flask, Alembic, Retort, Mortal and Pestle, Arcane Augmenter and Arcane Tuner are easy to travel with and will help you find your true potential as a chemist.
