NO offense but you might missed one thinking that you got everyone...the only thing i can think of is doing them all over again and keep track ...it does suck that it doesn't tell how many stars you have...and since you got good scores you can do it in no time

Yeah that was what I did already. Made a list and checked them off as I confirmed getting 5 star rating.
Really suck if I do it again and the damn achievement doesn't open. Might just start a new game and do it from scratch in case I have a glitch or something.

grrr, i wqas keeping a list and checking them all off when i got 5 stars and just done some again where they were the first i did.

scores are

vol 1803
shrinking 1770
wit 1117
vure for boils 1650
draught of living death 2571

girding 2190
antidote common 3192
draught of peace 2401
oculus 1847
love potion 2156 *
poly * 2253
elixir 2130
love pot anti 2266
fertiliser 3300
staina 3097
wiggenweld 2400* - needed 2515

the last 3 are ones i was not 100% sure on and am trying to repeat. but i am sure i have done them all at 5 star as i was keeping track.

any suggestions?

it was wiigenweld, i had done that as part of the main quest. final score for 5 stars was 2515.

so at least its a good example of lower scores that got 5 stars!!

Your Stamina game is low. I believe that you need to be around 3500 for that one. It is a real pain to get.

I believe that polyjuice needs to be around 2400 and love potion around 2500.

Also I would double check your Volubilis potion. That one is really tricky to nab 5 star on for a 1st tear potion I just nabbed it at 1855. You might be good on it but if the achievement doesn't unlock after the other three then double check the Volubilis.

cheers, i got it in the end, it was the wiggengeld (the last one)

so the scores above ARE probably about the lowest to get 5 stars!! everyone else seemed much better at it than me. at least they can be used as a benchmark for which ones people don't have 5 stars on.

and yes, volubis was one of the last ones i managed, it took forever to get it perfect.

Well, basically just try to anticipate then to finish stirring and heating the portion. You need to stop heating just before or as the color starts to turn the color you are trying to get. Generally if you stop heating as the controller shakes then you will have overheated just slightly too much to get a great.

For stirring, go like mad until the color turns the shade you are going for then slowly stir until the controller shakes then stop immediately.

For this and later potions, while you stir or heat, move the target onto the next ingredient so that as soon as you are done you can hit A to get the next ingredient on the go. That way you fdon't waist time selecting the next ingredient after. Also, while you are selecting the next ingredient, make sure you are still paying attention so that you don't end up in a cloud of smoke. If you get smoke then you are best to abort and retry Volubilis as it is a tight one to get 5 star on.

It would really be preferable if people would only post there scores that are lower than the previous scores. Or even better make a list with the lower scores and just update that list if you get a lower score.

I.E.
user_name_1
Potion A 101 pts
Potion B 102 pts
Potion C 103 pts
Potion D 104 pts

user_name_2 should post the following as he/she only scored lower on potion_D
Potion A 101 pts
Potion B 102 pts
Potion C 103 pts
Potion D 99 pts

Just trying to make it easier for people to get this chieve, not trying to complain about people trying to help.

Better yet.. DarthSoth should update his first post with the lowest scores, perpetually.
