What are Elixirs?

Botw - Elixirs

Potions with Effects and Buffs

Elixirs differ from the cook food in two ways; they use Monster Parts as ingredients, and they always have an effect.

These effects can boost things like your health, stamina or attack power, or serve to protect you against the elements of Breath of the Wild. Especially stamina potions are super useful, so let's get cooking!

How to Make Elixirs

Gather Materials

Elixir Material Requirements
Critter + Monster Part

All Elixirs are made by combining a Monster Part and a Creature with the desired effect.

Some materials can be bought from shops or traveling merchants, but you'll probably find most of your ingredients as you adventure through Hyrule.

Look for a Cooking Pot

Breath of the Wild - Look for Cooking Pot
Just like when cooking food, you can only create elixirs by mixing your ingredients in a cooking pot. Cooking pots are easy to find in stables and villages. , so travel to one and start looking for a cooking pot.

Select the Materials

Breath of the Wild - Get Materials
Next you choose the base materials you'll use to make the elixir, based on what kind of buff you want. For example, one way of making a basic stamina potion is to hold a Restless Cricket and a Keese Wing and cook them, and if you want more stamina recovery you can add more Crickets.

Start Cooking

Botw - Stamina Potion
Exit your menu and step close enough to the cooking pot for the Cook option to appear (A button), then start cooking! You'll see the result immediately, bu you can also check it via the Food tab in the Inventory.

Tips for Making Elixirs

Critter and Monster Part Compatibility

Botw - Critter & Monster Comaptibility Result
Critters and monster parts with the same attribute have the most compatibility when cooked into an elixir. Always check each critter or monster part attribute to get the highest quality of elixir before making one.

Decide on the Elixir Type

Botw - Decide the Elixir
Avoid randomly selecting each material and first decide on what elixir you want to make, then look for the creatures and monster materials that will give the buff.

You can then power up the effect by adding more Creatures, or make the potion last longer by adding more Monster Spoils.
