How to Get Alchemical Base in Enshrouded

Craig Robinson

Alchemical Base is one of the end-game materials that players can use from the Nomad Highlands onwards. This material will help with plenty of your Enshrouded progression, with the resources used in many crafts, ranging from end-game recipes like healing potions and equipment. No matter what you intend to use it for, here’s everything you need to know about getting Alchemical Base in Enshrouded.

The Alchemny Station enables the player to begin crafting Alchemical Base and Antiseptic in Enshrouded.

How to Make Alchemical Base in Enshrouded

To get Alchemical Base in Enshrouded, you will need to have unlocked the Alchemy Station from the Alchemist Quest, A Black Cauldron. To get the Black Cauldron, you will need to visit a few POIs around Nomad Highlands, which will take you through Rattlebleak, then to a small shrouded area near the Ancient Tower in the Nomad Highlands. Inside, you find a Fell Monstrosity, and with it, acquire the Black Cauldron. On a side note, the quest appears somewhat randomly when entering Nomad Highlands. Make sure to complete all other crafter quests and craft all important marked crafts in the Alchemist to ensure you get the trigger for the quest.

When you acquire the item, return to the Alchemist, and craft the Alchemist Station. To do so, you need the following items:

  • 20x Fired Bricks
  • 6x Wood Planks
  • 10x Nails
  • 3x Wood Logs
  • 5x Copper Bars
  • 1x Black Cauldron

Once you have created the craft for the Alchemy Station from the Alchemist, place it in your base, and you can start creating new recipes. Among the list is the Alchemical Base, which then requires the following items to craft it:

  • 1x Shroud Liquid
  • 1x Mycelium
  • 1x Water
  • 1x Shroud Spores

Alchemical Base can be crafted once you get the Alchemy Lab from the Alchemist’s questline.

All of these materials can be gathered from the Shrouded areas. Shroud Liquid comes from plants in the Shroud, while Mycelium is the mushroom-covered terrain. Meanwhile, Shroud Spores come from all Fell enemies in any Shrouded area, especially the basic warriors and Fell archer enemies. On the other hand, Water is best found in Wells, which are commonly found in many farming and village settlement POIs, and at this stage of the game, you can make your own Wells from Carpenters.

On a final note, it is also worth mentioning that players can find the Alchemical Base by smashing objects in the Ancient Towers, Flame Sanctums, and Sun Temples around the Nomad and Kindelwastes Biomes. The resource is among the loot table of resources in both biomes, so you will steadily acquire some of these items as you naturally progress through the game.
