Shattered Pixel Dungeon: Alchemy

One of the features in the Shattered Pixel Dungeon is Alchemy, which refers to the process of seeds being transformed into a potion using an alchemy pot.

The in-game alchemy station can be found at randomly-generated locations, which means there is no guarantee that you will find one.

Once you have found one, the game provides you with a short tutorial on how to brew potions. You can place any 3 seeds into an alchemy pot to brew a potion.

Keep in mind that every seed has a potion counterpart, and the potion you create may correspond with one of the seeds used. If you use the same seed twice, the chances of this occurring increase.

In addition to potions, you can create Runestones, but they require a scroll. Hence, players need to mix a scroll into an alchemy pot, which imbues its magic into 2 rocks in the pot.

It is important to note that most alchemy recipes require energy for the process to be completed. Crystalised alchemical energy is produced by deconstructing most consumable items in an alchemy pot.

Seeds generate 2 energy, stones generate 3 energy, and scrolls and potions generate 6 energy.
