Apothecary (Rift Profession)  

Quick Facts


Contents [hide]

Historically, an Apothecary is a person who uses herbs and potions for healing patients. Apothecaries also gave medical advice to patients much like a modern day pharmacist. The word is derived from apotheca, meaning a storage place for wine, herbs and spices. In the 13th century, the word Apothecary referred to a person who kept a stock of medicines, herbs and remedies.

In Rift, an Apothecary makes Consumables that give immediate, short-term and long-term benefits. Like many typical MMOs, there are potions that restore mana and health, increase stats or buff your resistance to various magics, while philters can be thrown at mobs to do damage or used to heal an entire party or raid. There are also recipes for rare color dyes that may not be available from dye vendors.

One of the more interesting items made by an Apothecary are philters that heal or buff an entire party in one gulp. One person drinks the philter and it heals the entire party or raid. e.g. Basic Philter of Restoration – heals 500 health to all party or raid members over 30 seconds (requires character to be level 25).

The Apothecary profession goes best with Foraging and Butchering as you'll need plants and some animal parts (bones and teeth) to make items.

  • Dyes - Change the primary or secondary color of a piece of armor or clothing.
  • Philters - Heal or buff your entire party or raid, or damage all mobs within an area of effect.
  • Potions - Restore Health or Mana instantly.
  • Serums - Increase one major stat (Strength, Intelligence, Wisdom, Dexterity, Agility, Defense or Endurance) for 30 minutes.
  • Tonics - Regenerate Health or Mana over time.
  • Vials - Grants a 1 hour buff that persists through death.
