The Sims 4 Realm of Magic: Alchemy
Potions & Ingredients List, Their Effects and Curse Removal
Alchemy offers some extremely powerful potions in The Sims 4 Realm of Magic Game Pack.
While Realm of Magic comes with a total 24 spells Sims can learn to cast if they are a Spellcaster, it also features 15 potions that can be used to produce magical effects ranging from simple things like causing a Sim to puke, to curse cleansing, and resurrecting a Sim immediately when they die. Alchemy is made particularly easy due to a couple things, which I'll explain below.
Ask Sages every 30 mins for a potion recipe, and you can have them all in about 7.5 hours.
You can use the Experiment interaction at a Cauldron to eventually learn a potion, but will have a far easier time building up a +20 or so relationship with the sages. The practical magic sage in particular can teach you recipes - the cooldown for asking for another recipe is shockingly low, at only 30 minutes.
Don't worry - you can learn the final potions from experimenting if the sages don't have a recipe. All potions can be learned from this one interaction.
Taking certain Perks may speed up the rate you learn new recipes (Experimenter) and grant you more Spellcaster XP while doing so, though for rapid gains I'd also use practic practical magic along with the other two.
When you learn a potion, you are given a free sample... meaning if you use the below, you will never even need to get ingredients unless you're doing a self-imposed challenge. I confess that this knowledge in part demoralized me from making this page, but it's here as plenty of people have asked for it.
Use Copypasto with Practiced Practicality and you'll never fail when at normal charge, with reduced failure rates at higher charge levels.
Copypasto is a practical magic spell that will make a duplicate of an item of your choice. There is a perk, "Practiced Practicality" that makes the failure rate 0 when your Sim is in a normal charge state. Get your Sim in a normal charge to duplicate really really important potions you need, like Curse Cleansing. This way you don't, you know, destroy them or something. In addition to this, you can get multiple duplicates with a perfect cast. Additionally, Repairio can raise the quality level of those potions, helping you to get better benefits.
We have a full list of potions and ingredients below. Their effects can vary.
Here's the potions list - Valerian and Mandrake can be found in the little garden area in the Magic Realm. You can use a broom, teleportate, or the connected portal to get there. From there you can grow them at home - they have no season as far as I'm aware.
You may need to do some frog breeding if you want to take full advantage of this without using the dupe cheat.
Note Potions can have boosted effects, or go wrong. When it says or, the better buff is for a great success with that potion. Success is improved with higher quality potions, so get to casting those repairios.
