Notes: 

  1. When Brewing any Potions, make sure you put three Potions (or Water Bottles, if you try to make Awkward Potions) for the Output. 
  2. There are three types of Potions you can make. The first one is the basic, the second one (with + at the end of its name) comes extended duration, and level II (with increased effect power and lower time). But in this case, there are only two, the basic one and the extended duration (+).
  3. In-game, the Potion with extended duration doesn’t come with + at the end of its name.
