List of alchemy ingredients in Dragon Quest VIII

From Dragon Quest Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The following is a list of alchemy ingredients (also called reagents) in Dragon Quest VIII. These ingredients can be mixed in the alchemy pot by King Trode in the back of the wagon during the quest, usually resulting in the creation of a new, better item. This gameplay mechanic was re-used in Dragon Quest IX with the introduction of Krak Pot, who essentially performed the same function.
