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. Poison Solvents can be looted from defeated enemy creatures.

The solvent types you find in the world depend either on your level or the rank of your Solvent Proficiency. For example, a Champion Points160 character with Solvent Proficiency 2 will receive either Pristine Water or Lorkhan’s Tears in water sources and Slime or Alkahest in oil sources.
