Potion Making Tools

The Alchemy Wizard

A fellow alchemist created this useful Javascript Tool, which will generate the possible ingredients needed to make potions with a range of 4 selected effects.
The tools very fast and efficient.

Requirements are that you have Javascript enabled and are using Internet Explorer 6 or Firefox. But enough of my squabble, take a look at the tool here!

OneEyedZiggy's Alchemy Calculator!

Thank you to OneEyedZiggy, a member at the Official Elder Scrolls forums, who was so kind as to provide a little nifty tool, for all of us potion and poison users.

With this tool you can make some easy selections and brew potions and poisons instantly without having to be in the game. The tool is available for Windows users. The tool might get some changes due to bugs or userinput later. You can direct bugs to me at darliandor@gmail.com and will be able to send them to oneyedziggy aswell.
