Activate mutagens by placing them in the diamond-shaped slots on the Character panel. Next to each slot is a set of square Ability slots. Activated mutagens grant special bonuses to your character statistics. Different types (colors) of mutagens grant different kinds of bonuses.

Each Ability placed in a slot near a mutagen of the same color increases that mutagen's bonus by 100%. So if all three Abilities in a set of slots match their nearby mutagen's color, the mutagen's bonus will be increased by 300%. The magnitude of this bonus can be further increased by the "Synergy" ability in the Alchemy tree. Abilities whose color does not match their nearby mutagen have no effect on the mutagen's bonus – they neither increase nor decrease it.

Usage

Up to four mutagens can be active at once (unlocked at levels 4, 9, 16, 28). Each mutagen slot has three Ability slots: each ability placed in a slot connected to a mutagen of the same color increases that mutagen's bonus by 100%.

Notes

  • With the Blood and Wine expansion, you can dismantle monster mutagens at the Alchemy Lab in the cellar of Corvo Bianco, yielding a lesser mutagen of the corresponding color. If a mutagen is an ingredient for a potion you have not yet obtained, the game will ask you to confirm before dismantling it (i.e. if you are not prompted you can safely dismantle it).
  • With the Blood and Wine expansion, you can transform mutagens to different color of same quality (eg. greater green to greater blue or greater red)
  • Originally, all alchemical ingredients, including mutagens, weighed 0.01 , but as of Patch 1.07 they weigh nothing at all.
