The Witch Of Fern Island – The Complete Potions Guide

In The Witch on Fern Island, you play as Abrill, a young student studying to become a fully-fledged witch. The art of witchery involves making amulets, casting rituals and of course brewing potions. The art of potion-making is a precise science and in order to start whipping up some potent brews you’re going to need a couple of things. The right recipe and of course the right ingredients that you’ll be able to farm or forage around Fern Island. In this guide we’ll go through everything you need to know about potion-making, including and where to get each recipe.


How To Brew Potions

You can’t quite wing Potion brewing in The Witch on Fern Island, so to begin you’ll need a recipe as well as the right ingredients for it. To start making a potion, simply select the cauldron that’ll be located inside your Witch’s Mansion on the bottom floor of the main room. You’ll unlock it by completing the “Wake up, Cauldron” Quest. To begin just interact with the cauldron and select your desired recipe. Then you’ll need to drag the right ingredients to their indicated spots or hit the arrow button to do it automatically.

The cauldron unfortunately does not heat up by magic and for you to brew a potion you’ll need a piece of wood to start it cooking. Any piece of wood will do, from hardwood to driftwood. Then all you need to do is click on the brew icon to start making your potion.  The cauldron works by itself according to the queue of scheduled potions, including time through the night. Below the queue, there are inventory slots which hold the already-brewed potions. These can be collected and added to the inventory at any time.
