How to make human in Little Alchemy 2

To make a human in Little Alchemy 2 you need to combine Clay and Life.

To make humans in the most efficient and resource-friendly way, there are quite a few steps we have to take.

Firstly, we need to make clay - which is done by combining the following:

  • Air + Air – Pressure
  • Earth + Pressure – Stone
  • Water + Earth – Mud
  • Mud + Stone – Clay

Next, we need to make life:

  • Water + Water – Puddle
  • Water + Puddle – Pond
  • Water + Pond – Lake
  • Water + Lake – Sea
  • Fire + Earth – Lava
  • Lava + Sea – Primordial Soup
  • Earth + Lava – Volcano
  • Volcano + Primordial Soup – Life

Finally, you can add those together:

  • Clay + Life – Human

And there we have it, humans! These humans can be specialised further, such as by combining Human and Bread to get a baker or even Human and Blood to make a vampire.
