Alchemy Recipes (Swordsman's Labyrinth - Castle Trodain)

These recipes use items from the part of my Dragon Quest 8 Walkthrough that covers Swordsman's Labyrinth, Hilltop Hut and Castle Trodain. They may use some items which you can find before these areas too but nothing after. While you make it to the area around Castle Trodain King Trode will upgrade your Alchemy Pot allowing you to combine three items in it at once.

For many of the recipes that you can make right now with three items you'll want to view Chapter 5 instead.

If you'd like to see recipes for Chapter 5 (Ascantha, Land of the Moles, Mole Hole & Multiple Side Quests) head on over there now
