Fair warning, I really new player in the Pathfinder world so you may need to dumb it down for me quite a bit.
This is the first time I've cracked open the subject of creating potions or poisons or anything of the sort and after reading up on it for a few hours in the Advanced Player's Guide I still don't understand as to how you create a simple potion.
All that I've figured out so far is that it feels like there are no actual ingredients involved in creating potions and you just lose your gold out of nowhere for the supposed ingredients that you are using.
Could some one explain in detail on how it all works cause I feel like the book is leaving out some stuff or I can't find where it explains it. I also need to know how I use the material components for the alchemist as well cause I want to explore how the alchemist class works in this so if I could get information on how he works I would be very thankful.
