An Alembic, Retort, and Calcinator

An Apparatus is a tool used to create potions in The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. Their quality can vary depending on their level. Any spice or plant collected by the player may be used.

Quality LevelsEdit

Excluding certain Apprentice-level apparatus, no higher level apparatus will be available until the Hero has met the required level. However, it is not necessary to be, for example, an Expert Alchemist in order to use an Expert Mortar and Pestle. The Hero may save time and money by getting and using the highest level apparatus available as soon as it becomes available, rather than trying to build complete sets of all five quality levels.

NoviceEdit

  • Quality level 20: May be found at any character level.

ApprenticeEdit

  • Quality level 25: May be found in dungeons beginning at character level 5 and in stores at character level 6.

JourneymanEdit

  • Quality level 50: May be found in dungeons beginning at character level 9 and in stores at character level 14.

ExpertEdit

  • Quality level 75: May be found in dungeons beginning at character level 13 and in stores at character level 18.

MasterEdit

  • Quality level 100: May be found in dungeons beginning at character level 17. Master-level apparatus may not be found in stores.

ApparatusEdit

Mortar and PestleEdit

The only item required for creating potions via Alchemy.

  • Standard equipment in every Mages Guild.
  • Fort Sejanus and Fathis Aren's Tower each have one guaranteed Apprentice Mortar and Pestle.
  • Progress in the Mages' Guild quest track until given the task to kill Mannimarco. Complete the task, and then search the entire area that was surrounded by bone wall. A Master Mortar and Pestle may be found in a chest.

RetortEdit

The retort is an optional Alchemy component. Retorts increase the magnitude and duration of positive effects.

CalcinatorEdit

The calcinator is an optional Alchemy component. Calcinators increase the magnitude and duration of all effects, both positive and negative.

  • Cloud Ruler Temple and Fathis Aren's Tower each have one guaranteed Apprentice Calcinator.

AlembicEdit

The alembic is an optional Alchemy component. Alembics reduce the magnitude and duration of negative effects in potions (but not poisons).
