  • River Betty makes some of the most potent damage health potions. It is only beaten by the Crimson Nirnroot (not with void salts or nirnroot). The only exception to this is the Jarrin Root which is only obtained once for a quest.
  • River Betty, Deathbell, and Bone Meal makes a poison with three effects: slow, damage health, and ravage stamina.
  • A number of useful poisons can be made using River Betties as a base — combining a River Betty, Imp Stool and Mora Tapinella creates a potion with both instant and lingering damage health effects.
  • Another good poison is River Betty, Deathbell, and Chaurus Eggs, which creates a poison of instant damage health, slow, and weakness to poison.
