Step 1: Create Human

Certainly, the Human element is one of the most fundamental elements in Little Alchemy 2. To clarify, it allows players to obtain any profession as well as things related to humans. But in this case, we need it to obtain Cold.

Therefore, follow the below steps to obtain the Human element:

  • Earth + Fire = Lava
  • Lava + Air = Stone
  • Stone + Mud = Clay
  • Water + Water = Puddle
  • Puddle + Water = Pond
  • Pond + Water = Lake
  • Lake + Water = Sea
  • Sea + Earth = Primordial Soup
  • Fire + Fire = Energy
  • Energy + Primordial Soup = Life
  • Life + Clay = Human

Wooh! Rest easy now, the hard part of our journey is over.

Step 2: Create Cold

Nonetheless, humans are the only beings who need clothes to survive cold. Whereas, most of the other animals have fur or wool to protect them from cold. As a result, Little Alchemy 2 uses Human to create Cold.

In short, you can obtain the Cold element as follows:

  • Air + Air = Pressure
  • Pressure + Air = Wind
  • Wind + Human = Cold

Finally, we have both the key ingredients ready and set to go.

Step 3: Create Obsidian
