Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom Elixir Recipe Guide: All Elixir Recipes

The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is the latest installment in the beloved Zelda franchise with many returning Breath of the Wild features, like elixir recipes. In the game, you can make several elixirs, which are potions that grant you various status effects for a limited time. Elixirs can help you survive in harsh environments, move faster, recover stamina, and more. Knowing all of the elixir recipes can make this process even easier.

Making elixirs is simple and fun. All you need is a cooking pot, which can be found in many places around Hyrule, such as campsites, stables, or villages. You also need two types of ingredients: critters and monster parts. With that said, here’s a comprehensive elixir recipe guide to making these mysterious potions.

How to Craft Elixirs in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom

To make an elixir, you just need to combine one critter and one monster part in the cooking pot. The type of critter determines the elixir’s effect, while the type and quantity of monster parts determine the duration and potency of the effect. You can also mix different critters and monster parts to create more complex elixirs with multiple effects.

Here is a list of all the elixir recipes that you might find useful in your adventure:
