Olvia, the sleepy town located Northwest of Western Guard Camp in Balenos, offers 11 daily repeatable Alchemy quests that reward Alchemy EXP, Contribution EXP, and other goodies. Some of the repeatable quests are locked behind a prerequisite questline while others only require a certain Alchemy/Gathering skill. See the charts below for a detailed look at the questlines.

  • A list of the Olvia repeatable Alchemy quests can be found by going to your Quest Log (O key), selecting the Recurring tab, and looking for the [Apprentice Alchemy] Olvia Alchemy Journal questline.
  • All 11 of the daily repeatable quests can be picked up simultaneously after the prerequisite questlines are completed.
  • Daily Alchemy quests in Olvia reset at server reset every day.

Are the Olvia Alchemy Quests Worth Doing?

The easy and simple repeatable Alchemy quests are the most helpful for leveling Alchemy.

With my tests, at Artisan 5 Alchemy, each repeatable quest in Olvia gave me .41% Alchemy EXP.

The price for the more advanced Alchemy quests is quite high, but still gives the same amount of Alchemy Exp as the more inexpensive and easier ones. (Although, you do get to keep the crafted items.)

But, you will have to decide if the most expensive quests costing 5 oils is worth the Alchemy EXP + the crafted items.

Alchemy Quests in Olvia

Required Alchemy Level: Apprentice 1 or higher

Repeatable: quests reset daily at midnight (server time)

The Alchemy quests in the chart below require Alchemy Apprentice 1+. Only one is locked behind a short questline. All are simple to complete.

The materials needed are not too difficult to acquire, even if you are a new player. All the ingredients can be obtained via the gathering Life Skill.

The Alchemy quests below can be picked up simultaneously.

If you do not have a residence and an alchemy tool in Olvia, you will have to travel to a residence to craft the Alchemy recipes.
