How to Make Potions in ESO
In order to make potions in ESO, you first need to allocate points to the Alchemy Crafting Profession. The higher your Alchemy skills, the more complex potions you can make. The best Potions combine a Potion Solvent with three Reagents. Reagents are Alchemy crafting materials that you can harvest around Tamriel from plants. You can harvest Potion Solvents from Water nodes. Alchemy Reagents have four Traits. Combining them with other reagents with similar Traits will give you the Potion you desire. To combine a Solvent with Reagents you can use any Alchemy crafting station in Towns around Tamriel.
