[edit] Expensive Potions

These are the ten most profitable potions that can be brewed from ingredients that are sold by apothecary merchants. The profit is calculated by subtracting the base price of the ingredients from the value of the resulting potion with 100 Alchemy and no perks. The profit should be considered a relative measure, not an absolute amount.
