How To Craft Psijic Ambrosia In The Elder Scrolls Online

Follow these 4 steps to craft the new Experience point booster, Psijic Ambrosia, in The Elder Scrolls Online.

In probably the biggest change since the release of Update 1.6, ZeniMax Online Studios (ZOS) today launched an incremental patch that allows provisioners to create Psijic Ambrosia — a powerful drink that acts as an Experience point booster in The Elder Scrolls Online.

Psijic Ambrosia

Psijic Ambrosia is a new, craftable drink that gives players a 50% boost to Experience. This is the first time ZOS has allowed the creation of XP boosters in the game.

To make Psijic Ambrosia, follow these 4 steps:

The recipe for this XP booster comes in 7 parts, and cannot be found whole. This is the first time in ESO that a recipe has been divided into sections, and is reminiscent of the Dwemer Motif pages used to craft Dwemer armor and weapons. All 7 recipe fragments can be found either by completing Provisioner Writs, or by trading/buying from fellow players.

Note: Recipe fragments are more likely to be found by completing higher ranked Writs.


When you have all 7 pieces, learn the recipe by using any single fragment from your inventory or quickslot. All fragments will be consumed, and create the complete Psijic Ambrosia Recipe.

Note: If you’d rather not learn the recipe, you can sell or trade it to other players just like any other in-game recipe.

There are 3 ingredients necessary to craft Psijic Ambrosia in The Elder Scrolls Online:

  • Frost Mirriam
  • Bervez Juice
  • Perfect Roe

Frost Miiriam and Bervez Juice have been a staple ingredient in purple, high level food and drink since Update 1.6, and can be found by completing Provisioner Writs, received from provisioner Hirelings, or bought and traded from fellow players.

Perfect Roe is a new ingredient used solely to craft Psijic Ambrosia. It can be found only by fishing or buying/trading with fellow players.

Note: Every time a non-trophy fish is skinned, you stand a chance of finding Perfect Roe. ZOS hasn’t released any information on the drop-rate, but the percentage chance of obtaining this ingredient is small. From my conversations with other players, the chance of finding Perfect Roe seems to be roughly 1 in 100.

Once you’ve learned the Psijic Ambrosia Recipe and have the 3 ingredients, you can make the XP booster at any cooking fire, just like any other food or drink.

Note: Before you can craft Psijic Ambrosia in The Elder Scrolls Online, your Recipe Quality passive must be Rank 4, and your Recipe Improvement passive must be Rank 6 (i.e., both must be maxed out).
