The Most Efficent Way Alchemy Discovery and Leveling

Please be aware this is the most efficent way I have found to discover all the traits and not waste the more valuable materials ie: lady's Smock, Bugloss, Columbine, ect. If you belive you have a more efficent way of doing this Please post a comment informing me!

Now Question... Anyone have anything they would like to see added to this list or even another topic?

    Great post!

    I executed the research list in post #2 on a new alchemist and I ended up missing the "Restore Stamina" for Columbine. Making one more potion with Blessed Thistle and Columbine did the trick and I unlocked the Botanist Achievement.

    For learning all effects, sure this is correct.

    For raw leveling of the skill, mushrooms, mushrooms, mushrooms and the highest level water you can use at a given time.

    Since they all have a "Negative Effect" of some sort, they're generally not used in functional potions right now, and poisons are not yet a feature of the game.

    As such, with all the alchemy nodes out the, the poor little 'shrooms are usually left completely untouched or purchased on the cheap!

    Here's an awesome link that is great for quick reference, too.

    I used this guide this evening to begin leveling Alchemy for my new toon. Worked like a charm! Thanks!

    With the new crafting node scaling in the game, I decided to level alchemy on another character. Also, I thought it would be useful to have a shopping list of mats need for this list. While creating the list, I noticed that one reagent Namira's Rot was used 6 times. In my experience, this reagent is rare and expensive (NA PC).

    Here are the possible substitutions to reduce the number of Narima's Rot with much cheaper reagents
    • Blue Entoloma & Namira’s Rot (Invisibility)
      (could substitute Nirnroot for Namira’s Rot)
    • Lady’s Smock & Namira’s Rot (Spell Critical)
      (could substitute Water Hyacinth for Namira’s Rot)

    The resulting shopping list
    • Blessed Thistle (5)
    • Columbine (3)
    • Dragonthorn (3)
    • Blue Entoloma (3)
    • Bugloss (3)
    • Corn Flower (3)
    • Emetic Russula (3)
    • Imp Stool (3)
    • Lady’s Smock (3)
    • Luminous Russula (4)
    • Mountain Flower (3)
    • Namira’s Rot (6) or (4)*
    • Nirnoot (4) or (5)*
    • Stinkhorn (4)
    • White Cap (3)
    • Violet Coprinus (3)
    • Water Hyacinth (4) or (5)*
    • Wormwood (6)

    Thank you for posting the guide! Unlocking reagent traits on my alts is going to be a breeze with it :) Got a question.
    Butterfly Thorax & Nirnroot (edited For patch changes)
    Did you mean Butterfly Wing or Torchbug Thorax in this combination? Or both?

    If you go to your Profile, by clicking on your Avatar on top of the page right under the word Forums, you can then click on the list of Discussions. Those are the threads you have started. Unless your like me and have started more than 140 threads, it is pretty easy, or at least easier to find a thread you have started this way.

    You can also Bookmark a thread here by using the Star near your name. This will not bookmark it in your browser, but in your account here, so no matter how you log to the forums, you can find the thread. Come to think of it, Bookmarking might be better to do this with.

    Enjoy the game, life is what you really want to be worried about.

    Looks like they removed more than bumps as well. I got a note this thread had additional comments but my earlier comment that acted to pseudo-bookmark the thread without actually bookmarking it was removed... hmm... For those that find this thread and otherwise are unaware of the resource, there's also a guide to leveling alchemy and learning traits within Sunshine Daydream's Guide to Alchemy.

    Thanks for the guide Royal_Kitsune. Think I did everything in the first 2 lists in post #2 (not in order, I'd done some before finding the list), but had to do three more to complete:

    Dragonthorn & Torchbug Thorax
    Lady's Smock & Beetle Scuttle
    Torchbug Thorax & Imp Stool
