I have a love hate relationship with alchemy in unmodded Elder Scrolls games:
In Skyrim, it is too much of a grind to gind other crafting skills.
In Oblivion, poisons were cool but so tedious to use and potions felt quite weak.
In Morrowind, a quick cash trick.
With mods like Alchemy Filter, alchemy is less tedious and obviously, mpc has already fixed potions so that the Nerevarine can get richer than Croesus selling poison.
Apoapse goes further and offers a way to make use of those bad potions in a fight.
Greatness7 is also currently on an Alchemy mod for poisons, stay tuned!
This mod introduces offensive alchemy (poisons) in a lore-friendly, balanced, and entertaining fashion. It adds a selection of magical traps; you can store a single potion in a trap — when an NPC or creature gets near, the trap explodes and applies the potion to everybody nearby. It works with all potions, whether vanilla, mod-added, or player-made
