"Hey, you mix potions right? Can you brew me an ale?"

Alchemy (錬金術) とは、The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim に登場する スキルであり、 The Thief英語版プレイスタイルに該当する6つのスキルのうちのひとつ。is the art of combining raw ingredients英語版 with matching effects英語版 to produce potions英語版 and poison英語版. It is one of the three crafting skills in Skyrim falling under The Thief with parallels to Smithing for The Warrior and Enchanting英語版 for The Mage. As such is affected by The Thief Stone英語版 and, as with all skills, is affected by The Lover Stone英語版.



Bosmeri英語版, Breton英語版, Khajiit英語版, and Dunmeri英語版 gain a +5 boost to Alchemy at the start of the game.


Ingredients (原材料) の一覧とその用法は、Ingredients (Skyrim) を参照してください。

Nirnroot英語版 is an ingredient英語版 with many uses.

Ingredients are used to construct potions英語版. Each ingredient in Skyrim has four possible effects英語版 that are unknown until they are discovered by the Dragonborn during play. Effects can be revealed by brewing a potion with two or more ingredients that share an effect. The first effect is also revealed by 'eating' the ingredient, which immediately causes the effect on the player after consumption. With perks, all four effects can be found by eating a single ingredient.

All alchemy merchants英語版 sell recipes from time to time and they can also be found as loot. Recipes will list ingredients that share a given effect which helps limit the experimentation required to find the effects of each ingredient.

Alchemy Table concept art

Brewing potions requires an Alchemy Lab英語版 which can be found in various locations throughout Skyrim such as alchemy supply shops, private studies, occasionally inns, court wizard's quarters, and can be purchased for player-owned homes. When interacting with an Alchemy Lab the Dragonborn will see a menu. At the top is 'ingredients' which opens a sub-menu which lists all the ingredients in inventory. Below ingredients will be a list of all known effects on all ingredients in inventory which each open a sub-menu which lists only ingredients that share that effect.


Various potions and poisons.

a list of potions and their effectsは、Potions (Skyrim) を参照してください。

Potions and poison英語版s are items produced as the result of brewing at an Alchemy Lab. Their effects can fill or increase stats like Magicka英語版 or Health, strengthen skills like One-Handed英語版, Smithing, alter the player with Invisibility英語版, or produce strong poisons like Slow英語版, Paralyze英語版 or Lingering Damage Magicka英語版. Brewed potions always have a name describing the dominant effect given by the potion. Unlike found potions, which can have alternate names and usually only one effect, brewed potions always have one consistent name, regardless of the number of effects contained. This can lead to some confusion when finding a potion to consume from your inventory. The value of a potion is derived from the number of effects and their magnitude regardless of if the effects are all beneficial or harmful.
