This mod adds some potions that enhance the player. Currently these are: Archer's Flask, Fighter's Flask, Healing Oil, Hunter's Delight, Looter's Delight, Miner's Flask, Potent Oil, Purging Brew, Predator Pheromones, Scent Mask, Settling Brew, Spiked Oil, Sprinter's Flask, Vitality Flask, Recall Flask & Glow Flask.

Version 1.5.0 changes the potion to a liquid so all potions previously created will not port over but empty potion flasks will.

Some notes:

  • This mod is currently balanced slightly better than before but some of it may still be overpowered. Balancing suggestions are welcome.
  • Mining potion increases mining speed only on stone and ores.
  • Poison and Regen potion poison/heal you over time.
  • Potion effects disapear after dying or restart.
  • Potion bases and potion flasks are required to make potions.
  • The ingredients to make potions bases other than the basic one are currently just different combinations of flowers with a mortar & pestle.
  • All the recipes should be in the handbook. (search for "potion").
  • Wildcraft adds herbs to the game to add more combinations for potions. (previously wild farming did this but now only wildcraft adds herbs. Also currently not all of the herbs are used in potions.)
  • Wild Farming mod is recommended if you want a renewable source of flowers.
  • Any bugs or suggestion please go to my forum post, my github page or post a comment down below.
  • Should be compatible with most mods.
  • You cannot drink the same potion when you already have the potion's effects active.


Big thanks to Rejn_Bashag for making the new potion flasks, herb racks and mortar & pestle shape, creating better names for potions and cover art.

MadAlchemist, Yes thanks for finding this. I will look into fixing it later today.

Cannot fire clay potion bottles - unable to construct pit kiln while raw potion flask is in the pit. Clicking with straw just does nothing.

Hey VincentMorgan, thanks for finding this and letting me know. I have done a very quick update to make the fired clay potion flasks to not be shelvable for now. I will try to fix this properly later.

VincentMorgan, Jan 15th at 2:31 PM

First time testing out the mod and it works nicely on 1.16

Only issue I've found for now is that attempting to put an empty fired ceramic flask on a shelf causes a CTD. Haven't tested with a full one, only when empty. Not going to post a crash log because the crash is very easy to replicate. Crash happens both on worlds created with the mod enabled and pre-existing worlds. If not else, crash doesn't persist and you get rolled back to your previous autosave. Tests were done on both creative and survival mode, but both on an originally creative world.

Pervy_Sage, Yes it Appears that wild farming is not updated to the latest version yet. You can still make potions without wild farming and herbs but it does make it harder to find ingredients for potions at this time.

Pervy_Sage, Jan 12th at 11:51 PM

It looks like Wild Farming is broken for 1.16. I downloaded Wild Farming first since the discription said it was required for the herbs and it has issues that cause crashes.

Hey all, this update to alchemy v1.5.0 changes a lot so let me know if there are any bugs or problems that arise from it. Also my next update will hopefully be a full rework of the crafting recipes and potion effects. Lastly the guide is outdated and I will add to it in the next update.

DArkHekRoMaNT I have fixed the dropped item scaling in the latest update.

Empty vs. Speed potion 

llama3013, Oct 31st 2021 at 12:16 PM

update 1.3.9 adds potionflask variants for different glass types. If you are prompted to remap when starting a world with this new version, make sure to toggle on the backup option and let me know if any problems arise.

llama3013, Oct 19th 2021 at 10:23 AM

update 1.3.8 adds a russian translation to the mod. Big thanks to ZigTheHedge for making the translation and sending it too me.

@Ravenrune Yes the updates on this page will be for 1.14.10. Until 1.15.+ is in a stable build and is added as an option for moddb.

EDIT: Currently the latest updates are for the latest vintage story release 1.15.2

Ravenrune, May 30th 2021 at 1:49 PM

Is the update on this page still for 1.14.10?

llama3013, May 26th 2021 at 8:06 AM

I have updated the mod to v1.15.0-pre.1 but I cannot set the download's game version to 1.15.0-pre.1 so I have put the download into the homepage forum.
