Elixirs in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom are consumables that give temporary benefits. These effects include but are not limited to boosting HP, Stamina, etc., increasing resistances, among many others. Creating an Elixir is the same as cooking which is by adding the required ingredients in a Cooking Pot. In this guide, we have detailed everything you need to know about different Elixirs in The Legend of Zelda: TOTK.
The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom Elixirs
Elixirs in TOTK generally require you to combine a Monster Part with an insect that you came across Hyrule while exploring. You can essentially toss random critters with different Monster Parts to see what you come up with.
How to Make Elixirs
Elixirs are very simple to make as it is nothing more than cooking essentially. You just need to have the required ingredients, a Cooking Pot, and that is pretty much all! Once you have everything needed, toss the ingredients into the Cooking Pot, and start brewing your desired Elixir.
A complete list of all the Elixirs and their effects are detailed below:
|Bright Elixir||Deep Firefly + Monster Part||Light Source|
|Chilly Elixir||Cold Darner or Winterwing Butterfly + Monster Part||Fire Resistance|
|Electro Elixir||Electric Darner or Thunderwing Butterfly + Monster Part||Shock Resistance|
|Enduring Elixir||Tireless Frog + Monster Part||Stamina Booster|
|Energizing Elixir||Energetic Rhino or Restless Cricket + Monster Part||Stamina Regeneration|
|Fireproof Elixir||Fireproof Lizard or Smotherwing Butterfly + Monster Part||Fire Resistance|
|Hasty Elixir||Hot-Footed Frog or Hightail Lizard + Monster Part||Speed Booster|
|Hearty Elixir||Hearty Lizard + Monster Part||Health Regeneration|
|Mighty Elixir||Bladed Rhino Beetle + Monster Part||Strength Booster|
|Sneaky Elixir||Sunset Firefly + Monster Part||Stealth Booster|
|Spicy Elixir||Warm Darner or Summerwing Butterfly + Monster Part||Cold Resistance|
|Sticky Elixir||Sticky Frog or Sticky Lizard + Monster Part||Firm Feet on Slippery Surfaces|
|Tough Elixir||Rugged Rhino Beetle + Monster Part||Defense Booster|
You will obviously need to find the required critters, insects, etc. but those are not difficult to find as long as you are paying attention while exploring.
While these are simple enough, not every Elixir is equally good. There are some that are better than the others. There are a few Elixirs that we recommend you to have at almost all the times:
|Spicy Elixir||This provides temporary Cold Resistance which is huge if you need to traverse a freezing cold environment.|
|Energizing Elixir||You will often find yourself running out of Stamina as you continue to explore Hyrule. To make sure this does not happen, you should try to brew some Energizing Elixir.|
|Chilly Elixir||This one is equally good as the Spicy Elixir if you wish to traverse a warm environment.|
|Sticky Elixir||Slippery slopes can often lead to Link falling to his untimely demise, especially after it rains. To prevent that, brew some Sticky Elixir.|
