I have a question, do I get experience if I make the same formula in my level twice?

You can! You can make the same formula as many times as you like, and as long as you're the level of the formula or one level up, you'll get XP for crafting it.

I just went to craft a formula and it failed. I crafted it again and it worked. My experience went from 4 to 6. Is that a glitch or did the fail count towards experience as well?

Crafting a level-2 formula is worth 2 XP to a level-2 alchemist.

At any given alchemist level n, crafting a level-n formula gives you 2^(n-1) XP, and crafting a level-n-1 formula gives you ¼ that many. (Since you're level 2, that works out to ½ XP for a level-1 formula; it rounds up to 1 for each formula. Once you reach level 3 you'll never need rounding again.)

I know all of that... and that doesn't answer my question... sweatdrop

It answers your question just fine if the formula you crafted was a level-2 formula. You didn't specify the level of the formula you crafted.

In any case, the objective answer to the question "do fails count toward XP" is definitely no.

Okay, then I guess it's a glitch that I got 2 more XP, thank you.

I just went to alchemy and bought a Formula 1: Angel Imp Potion A for 100 gold This is my first time. HAve no idea what I'm doing.
I'm broke and that was in my budget but now it says that it cost 2,500 to craft. But it says
I need three angel imp potions and two cherbub feathers which both cost wayyy more than 2,500.
What do I do?
