Kingdoms of Amalur Alchemy Guide – Potion Recipes and Reagents


In Kingdom of Amalur: Reckoning, you can mix different Reagents with the assistance of Recipes to form different kinds of potions. This is carried out on Workbenches.

Alchemy can be separately leveled up and like all other classes, has 3 types of levels: Basic, Advanced and Master. Basic is divided into 4 ranks while the other two are divided into 3.

Alchemy Reagents

Reagents are chemical ingredients which when mixed with specific other reagents create various potions. Reagents can be categorized into three main types: common, uncommon and rare reagents.

Alchemy, unlike forging, isn’t very intuitive, and just mixing stuff randomly can result in loss of vital reagents and recipes without gaining anything useful. That is why it is best to start with some sort of knowledge of what works best with what.

Common Reagents
The term ‘common’ in Common Reagents is actually quite relative. This is because it depends on place to place; you might encounter a ‘common’ reagent in some places very commonly while encountering an ‘uncommon’ reagent very commonly in another place. However, on average bases, the following are some common reagents:

Black Cohosh – A common reagent used to make healing potions. Found in forests and grass.

Cripplespore Caps – Reagents used to affect Finesse related stats.

Eel Petal – Used for lightning based potions.

Embereyes – Reagents used for restoration.

Leechwood Bark – A common Reagent in Daletarth, but very uncommon once you exit the place.

Scarwood Bark – A reagent often used to attack.

Less Common Reagents
These reagents are less common in the starting few hours of the game. However, some of them become more common in certain areas. A few uncommon reagents are:

Bloodroot -A reagent used to increase the effect of an attribute.

Edelwiess – An uncommon reagent used to attack enemies with elemental attacks.

Sativa Fibers – These are reagents that increase the amount of damage dealt or received.

Scarab Salts – These reagents enhance the critical hits and precision attributes.

Scarlet Flowerstone – Reagents that deal with regeneration and bleeding.

Seaflax – Similar to Bloodroot.

Rare Reagents
These are special reagents that are available in the form of special treasure or rewards. These should be kept safe and only used in the utmost important situations. Currently, we only know of two rare reagents:

Essence of Fate – This is a powerful and very rare reagent and is vital to creating the best potions in the game. It is usually acquired through quests, hence rarely ever found in the open or naturally.

Prismere Dust – Another extremely rare reagent, it deals with giving immense experience boost properties when used to make potions.

Alchemy Recipes

There are multiple methods of discovering useful recipes – the most obvious is just to guess. However, this is not the recommended way, as it can result in wastage of precious reagents, and time of course.

The other alternative is to purchase recipe formulae from merchants and learn them. However, that takes up money, so be careful about the quality of recipes you buy.
