Alghoul Decoction is a Decoction in The Witcher 3: Wild HuntDecoctions are special mixtures that Geralt can imbibe to gain various buffs with more substantial effects compared to Potions, placing a greater emphasis on synergy with the player's build and playstyle. These effects have a much longer duration, but they also incur Decoction Toxicity which, unlike Potion Toxicity, does not dissipate over time and remains active for the duration of the Decoction, essentially holding a sizeable chunk of your Toxicity bar and limiting your ability to imbibe other concoctions. Decoctions can be used at any time from the Inventory. By default, they have only 1 charge each but can be replenished by Meditating for at least one hour while possessing one or more units of Alcohol.


Alghoul Decoction Attributes in The Witcher 3

The Alghoul Decoction has the following properties:

Adrenaline Points are generated more quickly than normal until the first successful enemy attack.
50% Adrenaline Point gain

Note that a blocked attack does not count as a "successful enemy attack". However, an attack that breaks your Quen sign and deals damage does count and will remove the Decoction's effects for that fight. The effect will be triggered once again for the next fight, as long as some duration remains on the Decoction and you do not need to imbibe it again.

Alghoul Decoction's effects have a base duration of 1,800 secs, but this can be improved with every single point invested in any Skills in the Alchemy Skill line. The Adaptation skill also specifically improves the duration of all  up to a maximum of 50%. However, this is generally not a worthwhile skill to invest in as you get more than enough of a duration boost just by investing in any Alchemy skills.
