Alchemy/Poison Question

    Is there a thread I can go to in order to learn more about the ratios of success when crafting deadly poisons?

    Currently, my GM Alchemist get's a 90% chance of success (or so it says although it seems less at the best of times). And, that's while wearing an ecru citrine ring (50% enhancement), an alchemist bauble and a talisman with a 25% bonus. I understand that I'm not the only alchemist experiencing shoddy returns in this craft.

    I would be happy with the 90% chance where it real. Don't get me wrong, I can understand some loss, however, I don't experience similar loss when crafting other things as much as I do with deadly poison. Heck, even making parasitic and darkglow poisons yield better than DP!

    My question is, why? Am I doing something wrong or what can I do to get better yields??

    All i can tell you is enhance pots has no bearing on crafting...only application. Alchemy is a PITA...look at the crafting chance of the statue!
  3. That it is. I did a RL woohoo when I got a 28/22x talisman from the Library on my first try.

    Please excuse my ignorance but what is PITA?

    BTW, thank you for the response as well.

    I guess your not displaying the actual % success chance properly the best you will ever get with a 30% talisman is 50% success chance to create deadly poison. I have a 27% tali i use and yeah deadly poison is a pain to make with your 25 tali your at 45% success so you will burn lots of nightshade to make the deadly poison you desire to make. Though since its so hard to make the value of it makes more sense 10 000 gold for one keg is the price on many shards and it sells.

    And yes enhance potion items do not work when crafting potions only when drinking and throwing them does that property apply the talisman bouns +% to the success chance helps and that alone. %exceptional is useless for most potion production you just don't get exceptional potions. Hope this helps you understand your alcamist better.

    Yes, your analysis is more in line to what I've been experiencing. While I'm not happy that there isn't much I can do to better my chances, I am extremely pleased with the wealth of knowledge that has been shared here.

    Thank you all, for enlightening this stubborn wench, I am most appreciative.
