Step 1:
Make a save! If you have Potion of Clearance skip step 2.

Step 2:
Buy a Potion of Clearance
Novigrad - Merchant NorthEast of Hierarch Square in the building on the West
Skellige - Gedyneith where you do the Practicum in Advanced Alchemy

Step 3
Use the Potion of Clearance and respend your Points in Alchemy, Focus on
Heightened Tolerance | Aquired Tolerance | Side Effects

Step 4
Forget about the Decoctions because they bring far to much Toxicity (80).
Chuck your Potions that give 15 Toxicity:
Black Blood | Cat | Killer Whale | Pheromones

With a bit of Luck you already get your Achievement through the passive Effect of the Skill "Side Effects".

If not, we have to advance to the Potions that give 20 Toxicity like:
Swallow | Tawny Owl | Maribor Forest

The Math
Black Blood + Cat + Killer Whale + any Pheromones = 60 Tox
Swallow + Tawny Owl + Maribor Forest = 60 Tox

So in the worst case where "Side Effects" does not proc once, you need a Tolerance of 120 Toxicity.

If you have the Pops Mold Antidote - this will also work and only adds 15 Tox (you get this during a Quest)

After all this you can just reload your save with your new Achievement! ;)

o0ArA0ocan´t say, got the DLC on Day One - sorry
If someone has this info I will add it to the guide

XI AlphaMale IXI put myself under eight potions and no achievement. I'm guessing you have to have the DLC installed. Odd, since the Gwent achievement does unlock without it.

o0ArA0oYeah have read about this in the Killed it Solution.

XI AlphaMale IXI bought the DLC. I went back and tried this again and it worked before leaving the inventory screen. So you obviously have to have the DLC for this one. But not for the Gwent one.

samsaBEARCheers for this mate, the description definitely made it sound harder than it was!

ZordnilI have been searching online and it doesnt seem like there is a formula to find for nekker or usrine pheromones, only drowner. If anyone knows differently, please tell us where you got it.

Also, pops mold gives 25 toxicity according to my game.

KennyannydennySame as Zordnil. There is no formula for the nekker or bear pheromones...

Bootybandit1This is not popping for me, no matter what I do! I have the dlc too!

Cpt Ch4osYou don't need the side effects skill in order to get this.
Posted by Cpt Ch4os on 09 Jun 16 at 20:18
o0ArA0o@Captn Chao4s: Yeah obviously. Thats why I tell you to swallow the 7 potions with the lowest Toxicity. But for those who have to respec anyway it´s easier and faster with Side Effects ~~

@PaulDoyle: Ok, did not have any Problems unlocking this. Is it maybe on 100% or "unlocking" in your achievement app? Sometimes it takes a horrible amount of time for achievements to unlock.

CrumpbagsFor anybody having trouble, make sure they're 7 different potions, popped immediately. (and not like 4 thunderbolt, 3 black blood like I originally thought).

CR TROOPER 014Got it, thanks!

NeXuS23This is actually much easier than this and only need 1 Skill point in Metabolism Control which increases maximum Toxicity by 30 (130) so either you have it already or you need simply 1 spare point and you simply save before doing.

Then you take this above listed Potions:
Black Blood(15) + Cat(15) + Killer Whale(15) + any Pheromones(15) = 60 Tox
Swallow(20) + Tawny Owl(20) + Maribor Forest(20) = 60 Tox

Also interesting after i took all of them i ended at 112 Tox not at 120 for some reason,
but this doesn't matter. And the Pops Mold Antidote was 29 Tox for me not 15 Tox.

Another Alternative (needs Blood & Wine DLC) but even with no available Skillpoints at all is to get and craft all the Manticore Armor Pieces (Chest +10 Tox, Pants +10 Tox, Gloves +5 Tox, Boots +5 Tox) = +30 Tox like the Metabolism Control but without Skillpoints needed.

Apostle92627I drank 10. No achievement. This sucks...

EDIT: Okay, I drank seven DIFFERENT ones and got the achievement (before it was three or four different ones multiple times). You should probably put that they have to be different.

Shadow XBLThis should specify 7 DIFFERENT, not just 7 gulps.

Garrido1701I drank 10 different potions. I have Aquired Tolerance maxed with 240 tolerance.
I have bot HoS and BaW installed.
Still no achievement.
