Dragon Quest IX[edit]

In Dragon Quest IX, the player can use alchemy to create items. To do so, the player must use the Krak Pot at Quester's Rest. The Krak Pot does not become available until after the gate east of Stornway opens part-way into the game. Erinn then puts the Krak Pot on the counter for usage.

Alchemy is best used in Dragon Quest IX in relation to recipes. Recipes can be found by searching bookcases throughout the game. Recipes can be found for both common and rare items and is a popular method of obtaining items. Players may also choose to manually mix items which may or may not produce a resulting item. If an item is not made, the reagents are returned to the player and are NOT CONSUMED.
