    Best combination i've found is Creep cluster + Scaly Pholiota + Mora Tapinell. Combine all three and sells for 900-1000 with 100 alchemy. Also if you have the hearthfire dlc you can plant all these in your garden/greenhouse. This well net you 40 or so potions every few days when they respawn. So free ingridients +worth lots what's not to like.

    Heh, im making Fortify Health potions with a value of over 100 000 gold with alchemy loop, it's absolutely pointless as merchants don't have enough gold, but it's still comical.

    "Selling Potion of Fortify Health for 136034 gold. Merchant only has 750 gold. Continue transaction?"

    "Guess it's your lucky day Belethor, if you're ever surrounded by 4 giants, 2 frost trolls, a draugr death overlord and Alduin, just use this potion, survival guaranteed."

    I went to make this potion and accidentally selected juniper berry instead of jazbay - and came up with a potion of water breathing that is worth $6794.00, and has this list of properties:

    Breath under water for 1219 seconds. Decrease stamina regen. by 100% for 81 seconds. Magica is increased by 1016 points for 5 seconds. Restore 127 stamina.

    What a happy accident!

    Any thoughts on how to get the magica increase to last longer?

    I do have 5 pcs of enchanted gear with a 20%% enchantment on each that I use.

    Mid 50's I believe, perked up to 3/5 on the first skill, and the physician and benefactor perks as well.

    I am imperial, I assume by sign you mean stone? I have the steed stone right now, and as noted about I have 5 pcs of gear, a ring, a necklace, a set of bracers, a circlet and falmer mask, all enchanted with fortify alchemy ( 20% enchantment ).

    So I leveled up my character and maxed out the perk tree and it still remains at 5 seconds with similar gear as you.

    Ah, now I see what you were getting at. Sorry, working at this time so I am a little slow on the draw. Do you play on PC to be able to do that this quickly? I was really hoping to see that magica time go to the same time as the water breathing! That would be something. Come in handy when fighting Karstaag!

    Swamp Fungal Pod + Imp Stool + Wheat (Wheat added to your additional recipe of Swamp Fungal Pod + Imp Stool, can be substituted for another ingredient, such as Deathbell, as stated in an above post)

    The Instant Kill Potion
    Blisterwort + Human Heart + Jarrin Root
    You will get 6000+ coins
    The most expensive potion i guess

    Garlic, Nordic Barnacle and Salmon Roe make the most expensive potion in the game. Fish hatchery at Windham Manor and using Unrelenting Force to Create Flying Salmon is how you get a larger supply of salmon roe with less frustration.

    Best potion I can think of is garlic+nordic barnacle+salmon roe. Makes a potion of Water Breathing: Breath underwatwater for 430 seconds, health regenerates 36% faster for 300 seconds and magicka regenerates 36% faster for 300 seconds. At Alchemy skill 40. It sells for 2313 and guarantees a skill increase until around Alchemy level 70.

    I am gonna say definitely potions like Fortify Restoration, Fortify Alchemy, Fortify Enchanting and Fortify Smithing because they can be used to create super infinite gear! And farming the damned fish heads and salt is a royal pain.
