Unlike previous games, Albedo is not simply part of other alchemical ingredients. It must be created using more basic ingredients. It is also used in the following formulae:

It is also used to craft a superior Ursine silver sword

In The Witcher computer game[]


Albedo is an additional, or secondary substance which is present in some alchemical ingredients in addition to the primary substance. All alchemical ingredients contain one of six basic substances: aether, hydragenum, quebrith, rebis, vermilion and vitriol. There are also three additional substances: albedo, nigredo and rubedo. Any given ingredient may contain only a single basic substance and potentially one additional, or secondary substance.

potions Albedo potions: If all ingredients used to create a given potion contain albedo as an additional substance, the potion created reduces the toxicity of any subsequently imbibed potions for 1 hour, which is not the entire duration of most potion effects, but very helpful with Blizzard.
Drinking an Albedo potion when you already have the Albedo effect will not reduce toxicity further. The effects do not stack.
