The Most Efficent Way Alchemy Discovery and Leveling

  • Stingray_67
    Tripped on this today. Great post and I certainly wish I'd found it sooner!

    Here is a somewhat different way of doing things that I came up with. My goal was not the least number of combines, but rather the most gold efficient means of accomplishing the goal of learning all effects up to and including dragon blood/bile on an untrained character. There are 32 combines total (though you'll have to do some filling combines between the two reagent and three reagent combines to get Alchemy Level to 15).

    The Shopping List:

    30-50 Ichor (this will vary by race, CP spending, and ESO Plus status, but 50 should be good even with no bonuses)
    30-50 Slime
    10 Gall
    (none of these are very expensive so I've been a bit loose in the amounts as you'll likely have to buy in larger chunks if you don't have them on hand already)

    Powdered Mother of Pearl 2
    Clam Gall 2
    Dragon's Blood 2
    Corn Flower 2
    Dragon's Bile 2
    Torchbug Thorax 2
    Columbine 2
    Mudcrab Chitin 2
    Beetle Scuttle 2
    Blessed Thistle 2
    Violet Coprinus 3
    Scrib Jelly 3
    Bugloss 2
    Nirnroot 3
    Namira's Rot 4
    Lady's Smock 5
    Water Hyacinth 2
    Nightshade 3
    Wormwood 3
    Mountain Flower 3
    Butterfly Wing 2
    Dragonthorn 5
    Spider Egg 4
    Stinkhorn 3
    Emetic Russula 4
    Luminous Russula 3 (Get extra for filling the gap)
    Imp Stool 3 (Get extra for filling the gap)
    Blue Entoloma 2
    White Cap 6
    Fleshfly Larva 5 (Get extra for filling the gap)

    (In September 2019 when I figured this out, this amounts to just over 26k gold according to TTC prices. It amounted to many k less than other popular methods I've seen.)

    And the combines:

    1) Beetle Scuttle / Mudcrab Chitin
    2) Blessed Thistle / Emetic Russula
    3) Bugloss / White Cap
    4) Clam Gall / Fleshfly Larva
    5) Corn Flower / Lady's Smock
    6) Dragonthorn / Stinkhorn
    7) Lady's Smock / Violet Coprinus
    8) Violet Coprinus / White Cap

    Level up to 15 and buy the Laboratory Use Skill to complete the remaining combines. (Fleshfly Larva with Emetic Luminous Russula or Imp Stool are cheapest.)

    9) Beetle Scuttle / Fleshfly Larva / Lady's Smock
    10) Blessed Thistle / Dragonthorn / Scrib Jelly
    11) Blue Entoloma / Butterfly Wing / White Cap
    12) Blue Entoloma / Lady's Smock / Namira's Rot
    13) Bugloss / Columbine / Dragonthorn
    14) Butterfly Wing / Nirnroot / Powdered Mother of Pearl
    15) Columbine / Mountain Flower / Namira's Rot
    16) Clam Gall / Mudcrab Chitin / Spider Egg
    17) Corn Flower / Violet Coprinus / Wormwood
    18) Dragon's Bile / Dragon's Blood / Spider Egg
    19) Dragon's Bile / Fleshfly Larva / Scrib Jelly
    20) Dragon's Blood / Mountain Flower / Nightshade
    21) Dragonthorn / Emetic Russula / Water Hyacinth
    22) Dragonthorn / Namira's Rot / Wormwood
    23) Emetic Russula / Fleshfly Larva / Nightshade
    24) Emetic Russula / Imp Stool / White Cap
    25) Fleshfly Larva / Torchbug Thorax / White Cap
    26) Imp Stool / Luminous Russula / Mountain Flower
    27) Imp Stool / Nirnroot / Spider Egg
    28) Lady's Smock / Luminous Russula / Water Hyacinth
    29) Luminous Russula / Stinkhorn / Wormwood
    30) Namira's Rot / Nightshade / Powdered Mother of Pearl
    31) Nirnroot / Stinkhorn / Torchbug Thorax
    32) Scrib Jelly / Spider Egg / White Cap

    I've used this on 3 characters so far without issue. I certainly hope you find it helpful as well.
