The Alchemist is your one-stop shop to increase the potency of your healing potions in Diablo 4.

  • By default, in Diablo 4, you start off with the least-potent healing potion.
  • After you reach level 10, you can visit The Alchemist’s shop and upgrade your potion to the next level.
  • You will need the required ingredients to do so, but those aren’t hard to come by at all.
  • You can find your own ingredients by picking bushes in the world and opening Herb Caches, which are sometimes given to you as quest rewards.
  • You can continually upgrade your healing potions as you level up in Diablo 4.

How To Craft Elixirs?

In my opinion, one of the notable functions of The Alchemist in Diablo 4 is the ability to craft Elixirs in Diablo 4.

  • At the beginning of Diablo 4, players won’t have access to any Elixirs.
  • As players progress, complete more quests, and find new ingredients, the Elixirs tab at The Alchemist’s shop will begin to fill with higher-level potions.
  • Elixirs can aid players in combat or exploration.
  • All Elixirs in Diablo 4 have a 30-minute buff duration, based on available information.

When To Use Elixirs in Diablo 4

Elixirs in Diablo 4 provide a percentage XP increase buff for your character. While it may be tempting to use them frequently to increase XP gain continually, it’s important to consider their primary effects. 

  • Each Elixir in Diablo 4 provides a specific effect to aid you in combat or exploration, such as increased elemental resistance or additional damage output.
  • Only one Elixir can be active at a time in Diablo 4, so it’s important to choose the right one for the situation you’re facing.
  • Elixirs can also be useful for leveling up alts faster but should be saved and consumed only when necessary.
  • Ultimately, the decision to use an Elixir should be based on the current circumstances and which effect will provide the most benefit.

All Elixirs Effects & Crafting Materials 

The majority of Elixirs in Diablo 4 need two components for crafting, though it can change if the Full Version of Diablo 4 is released. Additionally, a fee is charged for Elixir crafting, so you should be cautious about using all the ingredients at once and take be aware of the cost.
