List of alchemy recipes in Dragon Quest VIII

From Dragon Quest Wiki

This is the full list of Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King Alchemy recipes from A-Z.

Please note that these recipes are extremely difficult or time-consuming, with more advanced items taking longer. The Alchemy Pot receives two upgrades over the course of the game. The first allows the player to combine up to three ingredients together, received after Princess Medea is found after the events at Pickham. The second makes the pot instantaneous and is one of the possible rewards for defeating the Lord of the Dragovians. In the Nintendo 3DS and Cell phone version, the Alchemy Pot is instantaneous as soon as it is received from King Trode.

The ingredients can either be bought from a vendor, found or made in the Alchemy Pot. Recipes denoted with an asterisk (*) appear only in the 3DS version of the game.

Items and such in bold aren't usable for creating anything.
