The Elder Scrolls Online: Solvents
Solvents Proficiency determines the quality of Alchemy items you can make. This includes Potions and Poisons. You start with one free point already in this skill, allowing the crafting of level 3 and 10 Potions and Poisons.
The solvents used to craft Potions and Poisons are shown below.
Solvents can be looted from water skins and with lower probability from random containers. They can be collected from spots of pure water found at various bodies of water too. All solvent types can be found in battle-leveled zones, depending on the rank of your Solvent Proficiency.
|Solvent||Potion Level||Potion Prefix||Location(s)|
|Natural Water||3||Sip of||1||Tier 1 Zones|
|Clear Water||10||Tincture of||1||Tier 1 & 2 Zones|
|Pristine Water||20||Dram of||2||Tier 2 & 3 Zones|
|Cleansed Water||30||Potion of||3||Tier 4 & 5 Zones|

Solvents can be looted from defeated enemy creatures. Solvents drop depending on the rank of your Solvent Proficiency as well as the level of the creature killed. For example, a character with Solvent Proficiency 2 killing a CP160 Troll will receive either Slime or Alkahest, or a mix of both.
The following creatures are known to drop solvents:
- Daedric Titans
- Flesh Atronachs
- Giant Snakes
- Haj Mota
- Winged Twilights
