Longer Duration Crafting Potions

In 1 collection by Arod Snaux
My Setup
72 items
Increases the duration of crafted potions of Enchanting and Smithing from 30s to up to 10min, giving you enough time to find your items, browse your chants, and rename your items. Better-quality ingredients yield longer durations. (Spriggan Sap is best).

This fixes a major flaw in Skyrims design: if you are using a Fortify skill potion while crafting, you have only 30 seconds to locate your item, rename it, assign an enchant, and pick a soul gem. If you're too slow, you lose the potion magic and ruin your item. Now you will never run out of time on a potion because you are browsing for goods or trying to enter a new item name. Bad design, Bethesda!

Please note this only works on new potions you create via alchemy - the duration of purchased "stock" potions and crafted potions already in your inventory will not change.

Been using this mod for a long time, and it's great and lore friendly as well. Thanks for a great mod that makes crafting a lot less of a hassle.

Usually I test before I comment; but I just have to say right now THANK YOU!!! Needless to say, I'm so sick and tired of finding everything I need... thinking up a Good name, trying to memorize the steps to get there quickly... and then 'HOPING' I actually beat the potion... but never really knowing for sure, since it's usually just a few percent upgrade. So again... Thank you!!!
