I got in the game the "recipies" for all three potions but I don't get it how to brew that potions. I managed to brew a stamina potion by accident but I can't get it right for mana potions. I guess what you need to do is to match the color of your selfmade mana-potion with the color of the mana potions that you can buy. But since I can't see my inventory while I'm working at the alchemy table it is very hard to do that.

I would be glad if someone could give me the exact recipies for the potions. (How often I have to click on which bottle at the alchemy table)

In my current run I have collected many gelatinous cubes and just wanted to turn them into mana potions. And now I realize that I can't manage it to mix even one mana potion because I don't get the right color. Thats very frustrating.

There isn't a fixed way to brew a potion, I'm afraid. The only way is to match the colours, and the trick is to reference the colour at the bottom of the bowl.

Still, I'm afraid it isn't very friendly to people who may not have good colour vision. It is an optional task though :)

On the brewing table there's a piece of paper with a color square, make the potion match that color.

It took me a while to notice as well, I think the game help text should make it a bit more obvious.

Heh, reading back on my post, I didn't answer the question about the square. Thanks for clearing that up.

The manual should explain how potion making works; I can't recall what the Help text in game said though.

In my current game as Sorceress I made a first try at potions in Munagvidirs local healers shop and expected either a failure or 1 potion to be made. After all the skill list displayed just "5" as skill for those potions and guessing from the spells and skills I did not hope for much.

But I seem to have been blessed by Saint Severus Snape O:- because after matching the colour I had 18! :thumbsup potions. And as I wondered why the hell 18 - that was the number of empty vials I was carrying because I still had 1 gelatinous cube left over which was not converted...

And after creating them the potions skill for that potion was still just 5.

So - does the potion skill actually do something? Or will the available reagents just be converted to potions 1:1 once the colour has been matched regardless of skill and the skill remain 5?

The relevant number is your Herbalism skill; the numbers for the particular recipes don't actually matter.

I had my Herbalism skill at 100, for a major part trying to harvest the two trees next to the cities where their inhabitants stand to search for something. However despite having such a large herbskill and being able to e.g. harvest mushrooms with ease I have never been able to get anything from those trees although e.g. Lif searching it daily. Is there actually anything that can be harvested from those trees - and if not what are the people trying to harvest there?
