What Are Elixirs?

In The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, crafting elixirs is identical to cooking food. All you’ve got to do is hold the essential ingredients, and drop them in a metal bowl sizzling over an open flame.

When it comes to crafting elixirs, there are two types of ingredients necessary:

  1. Critters (like butterflies, frogs, and lizards); and
  2. Monster Parts or Guardian Parts.

But before we proceed to break down all the elixir recipes in the game, let’s first define what an elixir is:

An elixir is a drink that provides all kinds of beneficial effects that help Link battle against the elements, and survive in the wild.

Unlike food, elixirs specialize in bestowing effects rather than restoring health. Also, elixirs allow the use of monster parts and guardian parts as ingredients instead of foodstuff.

Elixir Crafting Basics

It is important to take a look at the prefix of the critter ingredient, to produce the elixir with the effect you desire. Prefixes like ‘cold’ and ‘electric’ yield the ‘chilly’ and ‘electro’ effects respectively. All the prefixes in the game are pretty straightforward, so producing the elixir with the effect you want is simple.

With all that said, it’s time to craft some elixirs.

1. Chilly Elixir

Description: An elixir that grants temporary heat resistance. The cooling effect of this elixir is very useful when exploring the desert and other regions with high temperatures.

Ingredients:

  • Any Chilly Critter (e.g., Winterwing, Butterflies, and Cold Darners)
  • Any Monster Part or Guardian Part

2. Electro Elixir

Description: An elixir that grants temporary electricity resistance. This is useful against attacks from electrical enemies, lightning rods, and shock arrows. It is noteworthy that this elixir only grants resistance from electricity, and not total immunity.

Ingredients:

  • Any Electro Critter (e.g., Thunderwing, Butterflies, and Electric Darners)
  • Any Monster Part or Guardian Part

3. Enduring Elixir

Description: An elixir that temporarily extends the stamina wheel. The stamina wheel extension provided by this elixir increases total stamina for a short duration of time.

Ingredients:

  • Any Enduring Critter (e.g., Tireless Frogs)
  • Any Monster Part or Guardian Part

4. Energizing Elixir

Description: An elixir that restores stamina. The more, and the higher the quality of ingredients used to craft this elixir, the more it replenishes the stamina wheel.

Ingredients:

  • Any Energizing Critter (e.g., Restless Crickets and Energetic Rhino Beetles)
  • Any Monster Part or Guardian Part

5. Fireproof Elixir

Description: An elixir that grants temporary volcanic temperature resistance. It provides protection from combustion, which is an inevitable result of immersing oneself in volcanic temperatures unprotected. The Flame Guard effect of this elixir is needed when exploring Death Mountain.

Ingredients:

  • Any Fireproof Critter (e.g., Smotherwing Butterflies and Fireproof Lizards)
  • Any Monster Part or Guardian Part

6. Hasty Elixir

Description: An elixir that temporarily boosts speed. The speed boost provided by this elixir enhances running speed, climbing speed, and swimming speed. This greatly helps to cover distances in the shortest amount of time and make quick escapes from enemies.

Ingredients:

  • Any Hasty Critter (e.g., Hot-Footed Frogs and Hightail Lizards)
  • Any Monster Part or Guardian Part

7. Hearty Elixir

Description: An elixir that temporarily grants extra heart containers. The additional heart containers provided by this elixir increases total health for a short duration. These extra heart containers are used up before the original heart containers. Once these extra hearts are depleted, they cannot be recovered—unless another Hearty Elixir is used.

Ingredients:

  • Any Hearty Critter (e.g., Hearty Lizards and Hearty Snails)
  • Any Monster Part or Guardian Part

8. Mighty Elixir

Description: An elixir that temporarily boosts attack. The offensive power provided by this elixir augments strength and improves weapon damage, which greatly helps in dealing more damage against tough enemies.

Ingredients:

  • Any Mighty Critter (e.g., Bladed Rhino Beetles)
  • Any Monster Part or Guardian Part

9. Sneaky Elixir

Description: An elixir that temporarily increases stealth. The mid-level stealth effect bestowed by this elixir calms the nerves and silences footfalls, which reduces the chance of being detected by monsters and animals while sneaking around them. It is noteworthy that this elixir only renders one less noticeable, and not completely undetectable.

Ingredients:

  • Any Sneaky Critter (e.g., Sunset Fireflies and Sneaky River Snails)
  • Any Monster Part or Guardian Part

10. Spicy Elixir

Description: An elixir that grants temporary cold resistance. The warming effect of this elixir is needed when exploring cold areas such as mountains, tundras, frosty terrains, and other high-altitude regions.

Ingredients:

  • Any Spicy Critter (e.g., Summerfly Butterflies, Sizzlewing Butterflies, and Warm Darners)
  • Any Monster Part or Guardian Part

11. Tough Elixir

Description: An elixir that temporarily boosts defense. The defensive power provided by this elixir fortifies bones and strengthens defense, which greatly helps in reducing damage from hard-hitting enemies.

Ingredients:

  • Any Tough Critter (e.g., Rugged Rhino Beetles)
  • Any Monster Part or Guardian Part

12. Fairy Tonic

Description: An elixir that restores health. The more and the higher the quality of ingredients used to craft this elixir, the more it replenishes the heart containers. It is noteworthy to add that this elixir doesn’t actually use a fairy as an ingredient. The fairy only aids in crafting the elixir by sprinkling fairy dust into it and adding final touches.

Ingredients:

  • Fairy
  • Any Monster Part, Guardian Part, Small Critter, or Ore

Variations on These Elixir Recipes

Don’t be afraid to experiment with all kinds of ingredients. As long as you use the two types of essential components in crafting elixirs, you are pretty much assured successful results. Depending on the number and quality of the ingredients you use, you can significantly extend the duration of the elixirs you make.

By adding some foodstuff along with the two types of essential ingredients, you can even produce additive buffs such as healing, increase in heart containers, and extension of the stamina wheel.
