Even in the older games in the series, Alchemy in Elder Scrolls Online is a very good way to earn TESO gold. Elder Scrolls Online account holders can earn even more Elder Scrolls Online gold thanks to the passive skills the Alchemy skill line offers. From abilities that improve use of ingredients to ones that increase output, the passives are quite beneficial.
More from ingredients for more ESO gold
Potions require water and Alchemists are innately aware of how important this ingredient is when crafting their Elder Scrolls Online items. This mastery over ingredients is represented by their Solvent Proficiency passive ability. Through this skill alchemists can use different types of water to make potions of varying levels.
ESO account holders also get the Keen Eye: Reagents passive. This ability allows the character to easily spot reagents near them. In-game, players will see a faint glow around harvestable nodes that have Alchemical ingredients. Some say this skill is not necessary, but players who need help spotting herbs among rushes can benefit from this.
More ESO gold from more potions
The strength of an Alchemist’s potions is based on the number and quality of ingredients they use. With the Laboratory Use passive, players can use up to three reagents when making their potions. This obviously affects which effects the potion can have, as well as how much a player can earn in gold.
A good Alchemist is not only able to make good potions, he or she can make more potions from the same amount of ingredients. Through the Chemistry passive ability, characters can produce an extra potion each time they craft a potion.
Better potion usage for better ESO gold
No Alchemist would reach greatness without having to test a potion or two. This of course makes them more used to the effects of the potions. The Medicinal Use skill improves the duration of potions a character has imbibed. For potion effects that adversely impact a character, say making Elder Scrolls Online Armor and Elder Scrolls Online weapons less effective, Snakeblood is a safeguard. This ability reduces the negative effects of a potion.
