Ultima Online: Alchemy Training Guide

MMORPG.com's V D has provided us with this Alchemnt Training Guide for the classic MMORPG< Ultima Online.

 advertisement 

Alchemy is a skill used to create potions by grinding reagents. It is more convenient than magery because potions use none of your mana and require only that you have one free hand and plenty of reagents. The potions you can create can be used for good (cure, heal, temporarily increase stats), or bad (explosions, poisons), or useful effects (refresh, nightsight). 

Basic necessities of alchemy are reagents (the ingredients for your potions), mortars to grinds the ingredients, and a means to carry your potions. You can carry potions in either an empty bottle (1 potion only) or an empty keg (up to 100 of the same potion, but it must be poured into a bottle for usage). You can obtain an empty bottle from a NPC alchemists or a GM alchemist with glassblowing skills, and kegs can be made only by players that have carpentry and tinkering skills. If you do not have an empty bottle available you will get a message telling you so when you try to make a potion. 

By double clicking the mortar you get to the alchemy menu where you can select the potion you want to make, view the success chance, ingredients needed, and minimal alchemist skill to attempt making the potion. If you have below the level needed, it will tell you that you’re not skilled enough to try. After you make the potion you can transfer it from the bottle to keg by dropping the full bottle on the empty keg. You can continue making that potion and it will go directly into that same keg. Should you forget which keg has what, you can find out how full a keg is, and what color liquid is in it, simply by double clicking it. As stated above, you can only have one type of potion in a keg. You can also find out what kind of potion is in your keg by using the Taste Identification skill. To move a potion from the keg to a bottle, simply make sure you have at least one empty bottle and double click the keg. This will fill up all empty bottles, so be prepared to empty those extra bottles into the keg again if you just wanted one! 

SKILL TRAINING 

Make sure you have at least one empty keg in your pack, as well as one empty bottle. Now you can create one potion, put it in a keg, and continue making potions. Here is a list of what potions to make according to your current skill level:

The potions marked with an asterisk are the ones I suggest making, as they give the best results in training and are also the most profitable and easiest to resell. 

The table below indicates which reagent you will need to make each type of potion.  Lesser potions will require a lower amount of reagents to make but their effects will also be less important.  Regular cure potions will not cure greater poison.  Lesser heals will also only give a small amount of HP back:
