A Plague Tale: Requiem Crafting, Alchemy, Resources
There are two ways to access A Plague Tale: Requiem’s crafting interface. You can navigate the first tab by pressing I and the Tab key.
This will bring up a circular menu to the right of your screen, dramatically slowing down the time. By pressing Q or E, you can switch between alchemical ammo types. In either case, hold the left mouse button to craft your item.
The circular menu is a great way to replenish your ammo stock while sneaking past guards quickly. It’s likely the most useful one.
The Plague Tale: Requiem offers four types of alchemical ammunition, each with unique uses.
- Igniter- Mainly used for setting embers and torches, grass, tar and other flammable objects on fire.
- Extinguish – Mainly used for extinguishing fires.
- Tar – This is the main ingredient to create flammable surfaces and makes fires more powerful.
- Odours – Mainly used for attracting rats to a particular place and freeing them from their way.
Alchemical ammunition can also be used to disorient guards in an emergency. You can also get different base effects depending on how you throw it.
You will need a loud, accurate sling to extinguish a torch at a distance. Ammo can be thrown by hand if you prefer quieter firing, but it is not as effective. Pots are a better option as they can spread the effects of ammo to a broader area.
Mixing different types of ammunition can sometimes produce devastating results. Each of these four ammo types requires two resources.
Five crafting resources are available in A Plague Tale. Requiem. Four can be found in larger or smaller crates scattered around levels.
Episanguis is the fifth and final character in the story. It can be found in certain areas infested with rats.
Additionally, you can tap into the three alchemy upgrades available to Amicia. This allows her to have more ammo and to use Odoris and Igniter in dangerous new ways.
The Opportunism tree has many valuable skills to help you get the most out of alchemy. One of these is the ability to create ammo without using resources.
