  • I’m better than you

    These are the best presented and narrated guides on YouTube.

  • biggie cheese

    Wow, I never comment on any videos but this blew me away. This was perfectly made, and was not only aesthetically pleasing to watch but also extremely helpful. Thank you! Possibily make another guide on the other poisons? (frenzy, fear, etc)

  • chaosundividedreborn

    Play a drinking game with this video, drink whenever he mentions chillwind depths or hjaalmarch swamp

  • MrDUneven

    Make lingering damage poison, then pickpocket them into enemies pockets and watch them slowly wither away. Feel like a master assassin.

  • Ekkie

    I barely care for the content of your videos anymore (though it's great), I mostly watch your videos for their INSANE production value. People at hollywood couldn't make better tutorials than you!

  • LabTech

    I loved alchemy, but I hated the fact that poisons are a one use thing, and that you had to go into the menu every single time you wanted to apply it.  Future games should have an easier way of using poisons, especially since by the time I abandoned Skyrim I had dozens of self-made poisons that just ate up space in my inventory because it was too inconvenient to apply them.  Also, just out of curiosity, that weakness to poison effect, does it apply to poison damage done in the same attack, or to subsequent poisons?

  • RootinTootin Pootin

    a good idea is to put a weakness poison on an enchanted weaponfor example: a weakness to shock poison on a shock damage bow

  • SurferMark777 (Mark)

    human heart jarrin root blister wart GOOD NIGHT

  • Meat Cyclist

    the paralysis-restore health-combination is imp stool + swamp fungal pod. canis root is fine

  • Ashton Hornbeck

    I have a very important question. Can you regrow the root that Astrid gives you to kill the Emperor? If so, wouldn't that be the most effective poison?

  • ProjectDT88

    Canis root does not restore health!My favorite poison is Canis Root, Imp Stool, and Mora Tapinella. This paralyzes the target and does lingering health damage. So I know for a fact that Imp Stool and Canis root don't heal.

  • drakelord56

    Love all of those M'iaq quotes!Also Paralysis is misspelled "paralsys"

  • Corbin Bishop

    Crimson Nirnroot has an even higher multiplier than river betty if you want to make a very high damage poison.

  • Richard Peterson

    will note that if you find yellow mountain flower I'd stock pile them. this is one of the few plants you can not plant in a garden. and it is one of the most valuable ingredients in the entire game if you know how to use it.

  • Matt Brown

    Great information, thank you for sharing.

  • Titus

    I just gotta point out that you have excellent pronunciation

  • Shark Bait

    What I love to do is pickpocket someone and put a frenzy poison on them and guards kill them

  • Jagar Alagoria

    Nightsahde. You have a typo, Will

  • Will Bennett

    William, your production skills are top notch. You clearly put a lot of time, energy, and thought into your videos and it shows. I know, from your previous videos, that it takes a lot of time to produce all your content. I sincerely hope you will do another longer role play video, akin to your Fallout 3, Dragonborn, and Fallout New Vegas play throughs. Those are all amazing.

  • Fallout Night

    Good ole M'iaq, always having some wisdom up those robes of his. Anyway, thank you so much for the Skyrim guides Will, it's good to see some Skyrim content on the channel again. And even teaching a veteran like me a few tricks.

  • Luka Podravac

    How can I drink poison

  • Trommari

    So will there be more Alchemy tutorials?

  • Blitzcreeper JC

    Isn't the restore health Paralysis poison Swamp Fungal Pod and Imp Stool? Canis Root and either the two may produce a pure Paralysis poison.Imp Stool is also abundant in White River Watch east of Whiterun.

  • the cock wambler

    Clear, decise and with good narration. Great video!

  • [pǝʇɔɐpǝɹ]

    Deathbell+Giant Lichen+Skeever tail = Damage health, Ravage Health, Weakness to Poison.

  • CrisURace

    OMG o could be viewing for hours the end part of the's so relaxing...

  • KevinSui

    awesome video! don't care if it's not exactly timely lol

  • Craig Bennett II

    This is a pretty good video. What did you edit it in? Adobe?

  • Missdevil666

    Wish you could get killed when eat the wrong flower or something makes it much more realistic and fun in my opinion

  • IspieWith MYlittleEYE

    I still remember the Oblivion alchemy guide way back.. ah!! that voice of yours! nostalgia..

  • ImmaSavage

    What about a poison to put in someone's pocket and kill them while they're asleep?

  • Rambo Pancake

    This helped me a lot because I play a thief/assassin character. Thank you strife!

  • Joshua Jantzen

    4:33 combining imp Stool and Canis Root won 't produce a restore health effect, just a possibility of adding this effect when adding an ingredient which also can make a restore health potion.

  • Jaded Old Joe

    I've always dug how you could make potions & poisons in Skyrim without a liquid ingredient... Thank god ESO added a level of believability to crafting.

  • Lord Behemoth

    This video will help me a lot with the build called the toxicologist that I found on fudgemuppet.

  • DeadStarShade

    Y'know, I just started playing Skyrim again. This is pretty cool. <3

  • william gates

    Thanks, Will!!!  Your guides are very helpful and keep it up!!!

  • Bob Billyson

    falmer ears can b used in poison

  • Chad

    heres a couple of op potionsjarrin root + human heart + blisterwort (can only be made once without exploits)river betty + deathbell + human heart/falmer ear

  • CatHostage

    I would love to see you do a let's play of Morrowind because there aren't many great one out there unfortunately, and I think it would be awesome to see your play style

  • Jarno Arvola

    Great video, amazing work with the editing!

  • Austin Hopkins

    Very helpful tutorial!

  • Cleiber Junnior

    I love your videos, probably the best guides from youtube, that's very good congratulations

  • Nikolaj11

    The area just west of Morthal seems extremely fitting to start a your assassins guild.

  • Friedrich Grese

    These are the best guides overall in my opinion. Main reason that are completely coherent unlike so many others with ridiculous side comments. These are straight to business. Thanks so much.

  • How Could You Tell? ItsMe

    I wana play it as a hunter that uses poison and bow to hunt wolves and other animals. So this is the guide for a new hunter like me. I just hope theres no random guy to massacre me for my horse and vegies wtf 😂

  • That one guy no one notices

    Another good source of Chaurus eggs is in frostflow lighthouse

  • Sir Swaggy

    One thing I found whilst experimenting with alchemy poisons is if you mix Imp Stools, Orange Dartwings and River Bettys you get both the Lingering Damage poison and the Damage Health poison in one. For example, for the Damage Health poison it would deal 49 damage with the ingredients Will gave, and the Lingering Damage poison would deal 10 damage for 10 seconds with the ingredients Will mentioned. However, with the previously mentioned ingredients, you can create a poison that would deal 49 damage AND 10 damage for 10 seconds. Thought it might help, as I think it’s quite useful and I thought I might help some people out. 😁ADDITIONAL NOTE:If you want to, you can try and experiment with ingredients that have Weakness to Poison effects, Damage Health effects and Lingering Damage effects. If you somehow manage to create a poison with all of those effects combined, you might as well be worshipped in the Alchemy category. Again, I haven’t tried this yet, but seeing as you can have both Damage Health and Lingering Damage in one poison, why not also add another additional useful effect? Good luck in your alchemical endeavours! 😀

  • ultimateninjaboi

    Mora Tapinella, Imp Stool, and Canis Root makes for a good Lingering Health Damage and Paralysis poison. Mora, Imp Stool, and Deathbell gives a one-two-punch of enhanced Damage Health, and a regular Lingering Damage Health. Those are my usual favorite poisons to use. Though, I am playing a non-stealth character, using melee. so I tend to favor the paralysis one to remove folk from battle temporarily, and a good River Betty and Deathbell combo for other combatants.

  • fritzfreak

    I love that voice of yours ! YOU are unique on youtube for that, i hope you read this someday

  • Beti Bup

    I just want to say that you are one of the best youtubers I have ever seen....I love your vids and just want to say when I saw your "village" you made in the episode "The End" is beautiful... Can you do a special episode about how to build beautiful and handy villages??PLSSSSSS...Your buildings are so good....I am trying to do similar village but no luck. ... Pls do it

  • Claves Septem

    1. Your narration is bloody GOOD. Very good.2. My all-time favourite poison can only be made ONCE in-game....unless you exploit console commands (*which I warn, can be risky if you don't know what you're dealing with).3. Wear a set of armour or clothes (Torso piece, foot piece, hand piece, head piece, ring, necklace) enchanted with "Peerless alchemy" and you can make your poison damage count SKYROCKET.

  • Sandwhale Gaming

    This was a fantastic guide for poisons. I used to tinker around with poisons but I never knew about the river betty's 2.5x multiplier. I find that to be a common thing with your guides, I always find out something I didn't really know about or think about before. Thanks much, Will!

  • ConscriptConspir

    I thought it may be worth mentioning, combining giant's toe, creep cluster, and wheat, is the best possible potion/poison, to level your alchemy skill with as it has the highest base value, and similarly to the smithing tree, experience gain is linked to the value of the item produced.

  • Marie MacLawder

    Sooo... Bleeding Crown, Death Bell, and Red Mountain Flower? Or does the Red Mountain Flower just screw everything up?

  • Max Meng

    wow 4.1k likes vs 44 dislikes

  • Mark95

    There's a little mistake in this video. Canis root + imp stool actually makes a "normal" poison of paralysis (with no beneficial side effects). If for some reason you wish to create a poison of paralysis + restore health you need to combine imp stool + swamp fungal pod.

  • Alex Dagos

    If anyone wants to really go to town with chaurus eggs real fast, there is a lighthouse to the north of skyrim that long story short a giant ass chaurus dug into its basement or something by chance and the place has like 250+eggs

  • ReaperGrimm5594

    A favorite poison of mine is Mora Tapinella, Human Flesh, and Imp Stool. Damage Health, Lingering Damage, and Paralysis. Another really nasty one is Deathbell, Skeever tail, and Giant Lichen, for Damage Health, Ravage Health, and Weakness to Poison.


    Lol salt is so hard to find i always keep that shit when i find it hehe not even for potions, i just like cooking haha its cheaper than buying potions & food!

  • Papaben

    Canis Root doesn't have ''Restore Health'' effect, Swamp Fungal Pod does. Imp Stool has the ''Damage Health'' effect. So if you mix Canis Root, Imp Stool and Death Bell which is found in abundance around Morthal, you get an excellent Paralyse & Damage Health poison.

  • E_ Inkredible_Z

    Great Alchemy Guide Will...I enjoyed it and it was very informative

  • basilmagic123

    Truly a well-done guide, Clearly and Coherently spoken, labeled, and, organized, +stock-pilled with useful information, U can easily tell that a great deal of effort was put in this guide which is why I hope more people check this out over the majority of Skyrim guides created by novice Noobs, sorry I used the n-word.

  • Lucas Currah

    Cannis root plus swamp fungal pod

  • Braxton Hudson

    Great vid: informative and helpful as always. Quick side-note, you spelled Paralysis as Paralsys about 3.5 minutes in. It's not overly distracting, so don't stress it, but I'm sure people are saying it in a less friendly and less helpful manner below, so I thought I'd mention the specific instance. Have a good one!

  • David Scott

    Tip for those with Dragonborn installed: Imp Stool, Red Mountain Flower and Scathecraw, a shrub only found on Solstheim. This makes a KILLER combinatio, as does Red Mountain Flower, Deathbell and Salt Pile.

  • Mary Lucretia

    Frenzy is my favorite. I like to pickpocket them onto target's persons to fulfil assassination missions.

  • Quinn Sterid
