Alchemy is a profession in Elder Scrolls Online. You can use it to create many types of potions. You must be at an alchemist’s lab in order to create any items. In general, potions provide you with a quick boost to health, stamina, magicka, as well as other beneficial effects.

Alchemy works similarly to Skyrim, in that you do not need to find alchemy recipes before attempting to make potions. You are also able to eat potion ingredients to discover their effects. At level 1, you discover only the first effect.

Making potions has been refined since Skyrim, and now you require two reagents plus a solvent. Using a more powerful solvent boosts the power of your potion.
