Alchemy
« on: September 05, 2012, 07:17:27 PM »
Ok so I just started the Sims supernatural last night. I’ve been working on the alchemy skill the whole time. As of now I have mastered the skill and discovered all of the elixirs. Unfortunately I have not yet been able to make or test them all due to the fact that some ingredients are hard to find. There are a total of 44 elixirs.
Here’s a list of the elixirs I have made and tested:

•   Vial of Bliss-Level 1
Ingredients- Any food ingredient
-Gave a “In Bliss” Moodlet for 6hr with no mood effect and it filled fun and social half way

•   Invigorating Elixir-Level 1
Ingredients- Wolfsbane Flower
-Gave a “Invigorated” Moodlet for 6hr with no mood effect and it filled energy

•   Ad Nauseum-Level 1
Ingredients- Any Insect
-Gave a “Nauseous” Moodlet for 2hr with a -25 mood. Similar to when you eat spoiled food or have a pregnant Sim. After the 2hr were up my Sim went to the toilet to vomit.

•   Flask of Sleep-Level 1
Ingredients- Any Mushroom
-Gave a “chorofizzled” 6hr Moodlet with no mood effect and dropped energy by 1/3

•   Flask of Angry Bees- Level 2
Ingredients- Beeswax, Honey
-Made a swarm of angry bees. Gives the attacked Sim a “Bee Attack” Moodlet for 16m, while being attacked, with a -200 mood effect. I personally enjoyed watching the Sim run around screaming and trying to swat the bees.

•   Jar of Discord- Level 2
Ingredients- Mandrake Root
-Gave the “Upset” Moodlet for 3hr with a -15 mood. The description says “Provides a small amount of destruction to the relationship with another Sim.” Now It doesn’t do this automatically. However, since your Sim is now upset, they have more “Mean” interactions with another Sim. So when these interactions are used the relation will slowly go down.

•   Jar Of Friendship- Level 2
Ingredients- Red Valerian Root
-Throw at a Sim and instantly make them your friend

•   Cure Elixir- Level 2
Ingredients- Red Valerian Root, Mandrake Root
-Magical Afflictions vanish without affecting supernatural powers. For example  being turned into a zombie or toad.


•   Melancholy Serum-Level 3
Ingredients- Mandrake Root, Any Fish
-Gave the “Melancholy” Moodlet for 6hr with no mood effect. Dropped Fun by 1/3 and dropped social by ¼

•   Zombification-Level 3
Ingredients- Mandrake Root, Any mushroom, Any Insect
-Turns your Sim into a Zombie for 2 Sim days. Gives the “Zombified” Moodlet for 2Days with a-30 mood effect.  While as a zombie I didn’t do so much to see what your Sim can do while a zombie but, I did notice you can’t interact with any pets. Also you can dig up any garden plants by eating them but once you’re done the plant(s) is now dead.  A small note- if you have a garden and don’t want zombies destroying it I suggest building a fence around it with a gate and then locking the gate by only allowing your gardener Sim to enter.

•   Vampiric Sunscreen- Level 3
Ingredients- Any Metal, Any Insect
-Allows Vampires to walk around in the sun without any side effects. Gives a "Sparkly" Moodlet with +5 mood and last 12hr so one elixir should do your vampire good for a whole day.

•   Vial Of Enlightenment-Level 3
Ingredients- Any Mushroom, Any Gem/Gem powder
-Allows your Sim to gain a quick skill boost while sleeping. Gives the “Enlightened” Moodlet with no mood effect and goes away once your Sim has awakened. My Sim gained a cooking skill while she was sleeping.

•   Large and in Charge- Level 4
Ingredients- Wolfsbane Flower, Links
-Gain weight the quick and easy way. Your Sim simply becomes noticeably large with chubby cheeks and all.

•   Lean and Mean- Level 4
Ingredients- Wolfsbane Flower, Apple
-Your Sim becomes incredibly thin. There was no tone are muscle visible when I tried it out. Just a very skinny Sim.

•   Vial Of Potent Bliss-Level 4
Ingredients- Any Food Ingredient, Red Toadstool
-Gives the “In Ecstasy” Moodlet for 24hr. Also filled the Fun and social bar.

•   Skill Booster- Level 4
Ingredients- Red Valerian Root, Any Gem/Gem Powder

•   Flask of Potent Sleep- Level 5
Ingredients- Any Mushroom, Red Toadstool
-Gives the “Exhausted” Moodlet with a -50 mood effect and the “Chloroformed” Moodlet for 24hr with no mood effect. It drains your Sim’s energy bar completely down to red.  If your Sim can sleep until fully rested before the 24hr period when the “chloroformed” Moodlet runs out, your Sim’s energy bar will not deplete until the 24hr is up.

•   Personality Adjuster- Level 5
Ingredients- Red Valerian Root, Monarch Butterfly
-Changes one trait on affected Sim

•   Procreation Elixir- Level 5
Ingredients- Wolfsbane Flower, Red Toadstool

I know some people like to be able to just find this stuff, but personally I would like to come to grips with it on my own. So I haven't actually read this, just quickly scrolled to the bottom to give me opinion.

Thank you for your input but I guess this form wasn't for you. I only made this list because most of the descriptions that the game gives on each elixir is vague and you're not quite sure what it does exactly.

Carl is actually working on the page for alchemy to put on the guide now. Soon he will have all this information. I'll let him know that you've placed this here and thank you for taking the time to type it out. Because it's a new expansion, not all of our guides are up yet but look for them in the near future.

Age of Instant
The person transitions to the next age stage immediately (happy birthday).

Bottled Witches’ Brew is indeed quite simple, you become the supernatural Witch type. Comes with a training wand (from where, one wonders)

Friendship jars! I'll be replanting the red valerians I harvest I think to make more plants, making friends takes so long when you first start out. Make 20 of those, get the 20 friends charisma challenge and no more friendship decay, plus 20 elixirs towards the alchemy challenge. Score.

I figured Carl is working on a guide for the alchemy. I just posted this on here for the time being as a reference until the guide is finally posted.

Welcome to the forum Lessica.

Thanks for taking the time to put this up. I've been wondering about the potions that can be made. Some of them sound really cool.

A clear conscience is usually a sign of a bad memory.

I'd actually spent a good part of the day getting all the plants rounded up, but have my master alchemist ready to help me get info. This will actually save me a little time here and there as I'll be writing it immediately in the morning. Thanks a lot, Lessica!

Welcome Lessica!  It was so thoughtful and kind of you to post all that info!  It's just the kind of thing we love here, people who want to help others and are willing to do the hard work.  Now MY brand new alchemist has an idea of what's in store for her.  (huggies)
What?  Grannies can't play games?
I speak perfect Nooblik, (and some Simlish)!

I won't have the expansion until tomorrow, but the very first Sim I plan to create is an alchemist. The wait is excruciating, so I'm very grateful for the preview!

The potent invigoration elixer fills your energy to max, gives you a 24h moodlet and nothing decreases your energy at all during this period.

I'm happy to say every potion can be found in the Alchemy shop at one time or another. I essentially got all of them early on trying to buy a Witches' Brew and it took over a dozen buyouts of the inventory and $30,000. :P In the end, I had one of each from clearing the store, but obviously some are more rare than others. 

Potions are usually at the bottom. If you're desperate to turn a preexisting Sim into a witch, fairy etc. (cheating is bugged) you can opt to buy all the bottom third of the list and load it again. For buying ingredients, get the top half (generally).

You can learn 37/44 recipes using Research Alchemy at the Alchemy Station. The last 7 books can be found in the shop.

The potion recipes are also available at the bookstore but you might be able to get them at a discount at the elixir consignment shop.

Midus Touch - turns certain objects (not all) into gold.  I wandered around my house and it turned chairs (dining chairs, living room chairs), chest of drawers, side tables (not dining table though) and various knick-knacks.  Also turned a Sim into a immovable statue... not sure whats suppose to happen and if she eventually 'snaps out of it' or not (didn't play long enough afterwards).

Essence of Magic - restores to 100% the magic bar used by fairy (and witch I assume was only playing a fairy)

Opposite Personality and  Potent Personality Adjuster are giving me problems I have tried them both but there was no effect. I tried the personality adjuster and it worked changing one of my sim's trait at random but the stonger one doesn't seem to take affect. Have you had better luck with these?

The Opposite personality adjuster will always only change one trait and it may actually choose the same trait twice in a row which would show no effect.   The Potent Personality one changes all 5 traits on the person but again it's so random you might notice some of the same ones.  I've used them on a couple of Sims and it worked on all of them to change them completely.

I used an Opposite Personality one on my test witch, and it changed 2 of her traits. Flirty to Unflirty and Family-Oriented to Dislikes Children. I think it may just change ones that have a direct opposite.

Actually I just realized I was getting the normal personality adjuster mixed up with opposite personality.  Personality adjuster is 1 trait while you're right & opposite changes traits that have opposites.
