Divinity: Original Sin 2 includes some big changes to the series in terms of races, classes, spells, and stats. While some of the recipes will look familiar to those who played the first game, others have been tweaked considerably throughout Early Access. In this guide, we’ve broken out each and every recipe and its base ingredients from arrows to grenades to weapons.

All Divinity: Original Sin 2 Crafting Recipes

Note that many of the recipes included below are interconnected, and a player will be rewarded for trying out new combinations. For instance, you need to be manufacturing certain types of potions if you want to reliably produce elemental arrows.

Arrow Recipes

Although frequently lacking the area affect possibilities of grenades (well, unless you place something flammable on the ground first), many of the elemental and magical arrow effects can be just as useful, with knockdown and charming arrows in particular offering plenty of tactical options.

Note that you actually have to combine the base arrow shaft with the head for each type of arrow to get the final product (such as arrow shaft + slowdown arrowhead for a functional slowdown arrow).

Cooking and Food Recipes

I can’t stop laughing about making tomato sauce with a tomato and a hammer. But hey — I guess when you don’t have an immersion blender or a food processor, that’s one way to get the job done. Note that some items, such as the pies, require the mobile kitchen to be properly cooked after the ingredients are combined.

Rune Recipes

Each type of rune can be used to enchant weapons or armor to add various effects. Keep in mind that each type of rune can also be upgraded by combining them together (such as two small thunder runes becoming a medium thunder rune, two medium thunder runes becoming a large thunder rune, and so on).

How to actually enchant is super clear from the inventory. You have to switch to the crafting screen, then tab over to the Enchant section. Not all items are able to be enchanted either, as you need equipment with rune sockets, which don’t become available until later in the game.
