  • Because these are bought from Merchants and not Alchemists, they may be incorrect.
  • Although Gourd is listed as an ingredient in the "Resist Frost (2)" recipe, it is not actually used as an ingredient in Alchemy or Cooking. Additionally, Fire Salts in the same recipe do not provide the resist frost effect; it instead has the weakness to frost effect.
