  • Total number of ingredients needed for alchemy

    Have you ever wondered how many of each ingredient you need for alchemy items? Well I have. And I couldn't find an answer online so I created some tables. Maybe somebody will find them as interesting as I do?

    This is the total needed for all oils, bombs, potions and decoctions.
    If you'd rather see an alphabetical list, move your cursor over column "A" and sort it.

    Ingredients for oils




    The data for these tables come from online lists. I'm in the process of checking them against the game. If you happen to see an error, please let me know.

    Awesome bananas.
    People always ask me, "What's in the box?" I get the question a lot. "Come on -- what's in the box!?" I won't tell them...but I'll tell you. Go on.
    You can see what's IN THE BOX!!!

      113 different ingredients, that seems to be more than what is in Skyrim. Although they cannot be freely combined. and some are rarely used. But it is a bit surprising there are so many, I thought alchemy is a relatively small part of the game (compared to combat).

        Alchemy is what makes this game very easy. You wont even remember any formula because everything is done automatically.

          Whoaa, this is great !

            The total is a bit different from my test, idk, probably i'm on the wrong end here, because i currently use some mods.
            Although AFAIK none of my mods change the recipe requirement / ingredient.

            But just in case i'm right, i'm gonna post the difference, everything else aside from the list is the same..

            Sort alphabetical based on your spreadsheet :

            Yours left side, mine right side.
            Sorry for the weird comparison format, it's generated automatically.

            If i'm correct, here's the minimum alcohol & substance required to create all of the recipe.
            hangyaboly already have this in the spreadsheet, but as a raw ingredient.
            This one is the minimum intermediate product in one table.
            Alcohest 12
            Dwarven Spirit 49
            White Gull 44
            aether 4
            albedo 3
            hydragenum 2
            nigredo 5
            quebrith 5
            rebis 4
            rubedo 3
            vermilion 3
            Vitriol 3
