The Sims Freeplay- Hobbies: Potion Brewing

SAVED BY THE SPELL QUEST – POTION BREWING CAULDRON – TEEN AND ADULT SIMS – PRIZES: WIZARDS FURNITURE PACK, WISHING WELL, RUGS, DOOR AND WINDOW AND 3LPs

TIME LIMITED HOBBY – TIME: 7 DAYS – TIME LIMITED PRIZE: WIZARD COSTUME PACK

Once you complete the Saved by the Spell Quest the time limit for this hobby will start straight away, to begin this hobby you need to buy the potion brewing cauldron from the promotions r us store or the sorcerous supplies store for S5,000 and place it in one of your sims houses:

I cannot place the cauldron, it says its locked/ limited item, what do I do? You will have this problem if you try and place it from the new items tab, look in your inventory instead to be able to place the potion brewing cauldron in one of your sims houses.

If you complete this hobby in the 7 day time limit you unlock the Wizard Costume Pack for your sims:

When your teen or adult sim first starts this hobby they will only have one option:

  • Brew Invisibility Potion- 2 hours 30 minutes

You need to find all 3 different potions to complete the first row in the potion brewing collection to unlock the brew growth potions option, you then need to find those 3 potions to unlock the brew youth potions option and find the 3 youth potions to unlock the final option which is brew levitation potions to find the last three to complete the collection

  • Brew Invisibility Potion- 2 hours 30 minutes
  • Brew Growth Potion- 3 hours 30 minutes
  • Brew Youth Potion- 4 hours 30 minutes
  • Brew Levitation Potion- 5 hours 30 minutes

NOTE: once you complete the collection for the first time you can find the potions in any order but you will still need to do each option to find the different potions to complete each row

TIP: only one sim can complete this hobby for the first time as you can only buy one cauldron, but you can send another sim to a neighbours town to complete this hobby (if they have a cauldron) after the first time you can buy 3 cauldrons so 3 sims can complete this hobby

OPTION  FIND TO UNLOCK:
BREW INVISIBILITY POTION
  • Translucency Vial
  •  Camouflage Flask
  • Invisibility Bottle
Bigger Vial, Larger Flask and Gigantic Bottle

USING THE BREW GROWTH POTION OPTION

BREW GROWTH POTION
  • Bigger Vial
  • Larger Flask
  • Gigantic Bottle
Youthful Vial, Youth Flask and Baby Bottle

USING THE BREW YOUTH POTION OPTION

BREW YOUTH POTION
  • Youthful Vial
  • Youth Flask
  • Baby Bottle
Hoovering Vial, Levitation Flask and Flight Bottle

USING THE BREW LEVITATION POTION OPTION

BREW LEVITATION POTION
  • Hoovering Vial
  •  Levitation Flask
  • Flight Bottle
You can now complete the collection!

After the time has passed come back and click the exclamation mark above your sims head to find one of the potion brewing collectibles in that row. You still level up in this hobby but the hobby level up percentage isn’t important as the potion brewing collectibles don’t unlock depending on your level, when you finish a row of potion brewing collectibles you will unlock the ability to find the potions in the next row.

The table below shows you the level up reward that your sims will receive when they level up in this hobby:

 LEVEL  TITLE 1st TIME LEVEL UP REWARD
1 Snake Oil Sire
2 Tonic Brewer 250XP
3 Aromatheraphist 500XP
4 Pot Stirrer S750
5 Alchemist Assistant 10,000 Town Value
6 Potion Master 1LP

You won’t find a new collectible each time, you will get repeats, if this happens just keep going, you will find them eventually! If it is still taking too long you can use the lucky spin on the row where you cannot find the item, this will cost LPs, when you click on the LP button it will clear the row and give you a random collectible on that row so you aren’t guaranteed a new item (you will get back any other collectibles you already had in that row) Need to earn some LPs to use the lucky spin?

 

The completed potion brewing collection is shown below, once you complete the collection you need to click ‘start a new collection’ at the top of the hobby collection screen, this clears the board so you can complete the collection again to earn more rewards (you will only get the option to restart the hobby collection when you have completed the collection):

The first time you complete a row you will unlock a new option to find the next row of potions, further times you will earn XPs when you complete a row in the hobby but to complete the collection you need to find all 12 of the collectibles

If you completed this hobby in the time limit you will unlock the wizard costume pack for toddlers, preteens, teens and adults:

  

The rewards for completing this collection are the wizards furniture pack, wishing well, door and window, rugs and 3LPs:

The first time you complete this hobby you unlock the wizards furniture pack (even if you don’t complete in the time limit) These items can be found in the sorcerous supplies store :

  • Water Barrel- S500

The Sims Freeplay- Adding Basements

Once you complete the Basement of Kings Quest you can build a basement under your houses, this post explains how to add a basement and all the ways you can customise it!

NOTE: you will not be able to resize a basement or add more rooms until you have completed the quest

20151024-181135.jpg

Building a basement

Building a basement is a lot like building a room except it is underneath your existing house. You can build the basement anywhere inside the grid area, even if it is larger than the rooms above.

The second orange tab in the house section of the home store is basements. Hold and drag anywhere on the ground to build a basement. Green means the room can be built.

20151024-182906.jpg

The white dotted lines show you were the rooms are above (the blue line is the outline of the pool):

20151024-183009.jpg

Drag the white highlighted edged to resize.

Adding Stairs

You need to add stairs to the basement to be able to access it. The red areas as shown in the picture below show you were items are on the floor above so the stairs cannot be placed there:

20151024-182826.jpg

If you want to place stairs somewhere you can’t, you have three options:

    1. Move items from the floor above so you have room
    2. Choose smaller stairs or an elevator that may fit
    3. Build another room in a clearer area (outside the house space so you can access the basement from outside)

20151024-182746.jpg

20151024-182753.jpg

Decorating the basement

You do this the same way you would decorate a new room

Deleting a Basement

While on the basement tab click on the basement room you wish to delete and select the red simoleon symbol to sell it. You can delete basement rooms even if there are rooms on the floor above.

For more details you can watch my video, Building Patios, Balconies and Basements

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT THIS QUEST

please read before asking

How do I start this discovery quest?

Firstly you need to complete the book of spells quest then you can find the wizard in the park to start this quest

Can I do discovery quests at the same time as a main quest?
Yes you can

Do I have to do this quest?
If you don’t start the quest you don’t have to do it at all but if you have already started it you need to complete it before you can move on to the next quest

I haven’t started this quest yet, will it still be available when I want to do it?
Yes it will be, you can choose to start it whenever you like

I can’t get two sims to sit at the dinner table, everyone sits down before them!
There is a glitch on this goal, leave the park and go back, your sims need to sit down quickly before the other characters can

Why can’t I record a video apology to the werewolf?
You need to click on him and select the option

I can’t find the wizard to high five him, where is he?
All you can do is look around simtown for him, when you find him he should go back to his cottage

What do I get if I complete this quest in the time limit?
The wizards cottage

Where can I find the wizards cottage?
You can find it on the list of premade houses to build on an empty house lot

Why is it always daytime at the wizards cottage?
It just is, it isn’t a major problem though!

No, you have to complete this quest before you can move onto the next one now that you have started it, if you don’t start it you don’t have to do it

Some times are slightly different on my game, why is this?
Times may vary depending on the star rating of the item you are using, as the higher star rating an item has the quicker you will complete a goal

Some times are really off/ different goals show for me, why is this?

This will be because the quest has been updated recently, I try my best to keep these posts up to date but it is difficult as I cannot redo every quest each time the game is updated. If you notice any changes please let me know so I can update the post

This quest unlocks the potion brewing hobby, does the time limit start straight away once I have completed this quest?
Yes, the time limit for the hobby starts straight away once this quest is complete, you can click no when the hobby pop up appears but this does not stop the timer going down


NOTE: Last updated June 2016.
