The Witcher


Albedo is an additional, or secondary substance which is present in some alchemical ingredients in addition to the primary substance. All alchemical ingredients contain one of six basic substances: aether, hydragenum, quebrith, rebis, vermilion, and vitriol. There are also three additional substances: albedo, nigredo, and rubedo. Any given ingredient may contain only a single basic substance and potentially one additional, or secondary substance.

potionsAlbedo potions: If all ingredients used to create a given potion contain albedo as an additional substance, the created potion and any subsequently imbibed potions for 1 hour have reduced toxicity by 1 scale. Meaning if the potion has High toxicity it is reduced to Medium toxicity. Potions with Low toxicity like Cat and Wives' Tears become Non-toxic just like White Honey.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

Needed to craft:


  • In alchemy, the albedo means "purification" of the matter, and is the second step Magnum opus process.
