Zelda: BotW – All Elixir Recipes

In Breath of the Wild, players can cook their own meals to restore health, gain buffs, or restore stamina. However, sometimes Link only needs a buff and not a heart. For those special cases, players should consider crafting elixirs. These will give Link the motivation he needs without wasting a meal.

In the process of playing “Breath of the Wild”, players will find various small animals and defeat countless monsters. They’ll want to get into the habit of farming anything they see. Monster parts and creatures aren’t just for upgrading armor; they’re a key ingredient to any Elixir.

Learn about elixirs

legend  of  zelda  spicy  elixir  recipe The method of alchemy is the same as cooking food. Put the required ingredients into any cooking pot with fire, but unlike food, elixirs require (at most) two ingredients :

Any monster or guardian parts. Elixir buffs for critters (ex: Restless Cricket, Indefatigable Frog, etc.) do not stack. This means that if Link wants to increase his attack power while also being heat resistant, he needs to choose between the two. Trying to use two different Elixirs at the same time will override the effect of the first Elixirs. Cooking two ingredients with Elixir effects will cancel each other out.

Each Elixir has a duration, which can be extended by adding more ingredients or using “stronger” monster parts. For example, making a Spicy Elixir with four Hot Dana instead of one Hot Dana will create a Spicy Potion with a duration of 11 minutes and 50 seconds. Using Dragon Parts will greatly extend the timer, but remember that Dragon Parts are not considered Monster Parts. Players still need a Monster Part and a Critter to craft an Elixir.

Every critter and monster part in BotW

For example, small animals that can increase cold resistance are often found in areas such as Erding. These are harder to find and it is recommended to use them to upgrade before crafting Elixirs.
