Potion Craft: How to Use Alchemy Machine?

As the days in will pass in Potion Craft, you might forget about the old, broken piece of machinery lying in your basement. But if you’ll decide to spend some time and money to repair it, it’ll prove to be a very useful tool.




The Alchemy Machine is a powerful tool that can be used to create the Philosopher’s stone, every Alchemist’s magnum opus. It is also one of the most complicated tools to use in Potion Craft.

To use the Alchemy Machine, you’ll first have to repair it. Every so often, a merchant character called “master alchemist” will visit your store and offer useful items.

For the first couple of days, he will only sell you recipes for potions, but after some time, he’ll also offer repair kits for the alchemy machine. The first one can be bought for 1,600 gold and it repairs the main and right furnaces, along with the rightmost five glass containers.

This will allow you to make the first reagent in the game – the Nigredo.

What the Machine Needs Potion craft

In order to create anything using the Alchemy Machine, you’ll have to use a variety of potions, specified in every reagent’s recipe. Those will have to be poured into the vials connected to the machine.

The Nigredo recipe calls for a Tier 3 healing potion, Potion with Poison 2 and Acid 3, Potion with Stone Skin 1, Fast Growth 1, and Sleep 1, Potion with Mana 2 and Hallucinations 2, and a Potion with Fire 1, Frost 1, Lightning 1, and Light 1.

As you can see, that’s a lot, but once you’ll have all of them, simply use them on the specified parts of the machine and pull the lever on the main furnace. This should create Nigredo, unlocking the recipe for the next reagent, known as Albedo.

Genshin Impact: Sandglass Dendroculus Puzzle Guide

Get rewarded for clearing this new exploration-based mechanic.





Primal Sandglasses are a new mechanic for exploration that you’ll find in the Ruins of King Deshret. Flipping one will start a timed challenge where you’ll need to flip other Primal Sandglasses. Doing so within the time will grant you a reward.

In this guide we’ll teach you how to beat one of these challenges.

The Sandglass Location

To find the Primal Sandglass that rewards you with a Dendroculus and an Exquisite Chest you’ll want to go west of The Mausoleum of King Deshret.

Get to the red-circled area – there’s a Four-Leaf Sigil around to make the travel faster. You’ll end in an area with one of the squared-floor panels that you can activate by interacting with the book front of it. This will create an updraft that will get you to a Dendroculus waiting on top, plus a Forged Primal Light.

From that position you can look at the second area, the one we encircled in a blue circle in the first image. Take the Forged Primal Light to the panel there to create a Primal Sandglass.

The Sandglass Time Trial Challenge

Once you flip the Primal Sandglass you’ll have29 seconds to flip the other two. It may look simple, but there’s invisible walls that’ll make tricky getting to the others.

First you’ll want to do a straight-line run towards where the red arrow points: the part where you can see stone steps rather than sand.

From here turn to the right and keep going forward until you crash against the invisible wall. Then employ some wall-hugging: move while sticking close to the wall so that at the moment it stops being there, your character will get past it to the other side.

When you ‘see’ the door get past it and turn back in direction to the hourglass. This time the wall will be to the right-side of your character. Make your way to the Sandglass normally, and we’re on to the last one.

From that sandglass you’ll run straight to the second batch of stone-floor.

At that point, turn 90° degrees to the right until you see another invisible wall flare up blue. You’ll turn 90° degrees to your right again. Make sure to wall-hug a little so that you can see where the wall ends.

After you’ve cleared the wall do a full turn around, leaving it to left-side of your body and run in a straight line like you were trying to get the torch close to the last Sandglass. You’ll be clear off the wall in a matter of seconds and you can make a beeline for the last Sandglass. Flip it.

Now just walk forward in the direction of the Four-Leaf Sigil, but don’t use it. If you look down you’ll be able to see the Dendroculus and an Exquisite Chest to its right.
