Screenshot of the Alchemy Lab of Marcus De Roth

The Alchemy Lab of Marcus De Roth is a web-based tool that approximates how alchemy works in Skyrim. You can browse through the ingredients, see its properties, add them to the mixture and see the resulting effects of the potion. The initial values described in the potion assume an Alchemy of 100 and there’s an option to apply perks/apparel bonus.

Differences from the in-game lab:

  • In the game, clicking on a property will deselect the previously selected property. In my lab, you can click up to three properties to show the ingredients having those effects (to deselect, click on the property again or click on the “Ingredients” to clear the selections). There’s also an option to match all properties to an ingredient if you’re looking for something specific to create a potion with multiple properties.
  • In the game, clicking on ingredients will automatically add it to the potion. In my lab, you have to do add the ingredient by: clicking on the menu button, using the keyboard shortcut, or double-clicking the ingredient. Although it is possible to mimic the game, I prefer looking over the ingredient’s properties first before adding it to the potion.

The lab has tested using the following MS Windows browsers:

  • Firefox 9.0.1
  • Google Chrome 16.0.912.75 m
  • Internet Explorer 9
  • Opera 11.60
  • Safari 5.1.2 (7534.52.7)

Note: The potion cost without any bonuses applied is almost accurate although certain potions can be off by ±2 septims from the actual value in the game. The cost gets even more inaccurate when the perks & alchemy gear are applied.
