The Ceft Apothecary is an apothecary in the town of Etria run by Dr. Hoffman. Explorers visit the apothecary to stock up supplies for their exploration as well as to receive healing from the doctor.
The apothecary is where the player can buy various usable healing items such as Nectar, medica and axcela as well as getting dead or petrified party members revived. Party members will be revived with half their HP bar full.
- Dr. Hoffman is a reference to Robert Hoffman of the Trauma Center series, which was also developed by Atlus.
- In Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millennium Girl, the apothecary is merged with both the inn and Shilleka's Goods - now the inn is where the player revives party members and cures their ailments, while Shellika's Goods dispenses medicine. Dr. Hoffman makes no appearance in this game but in Story Mode Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold: The Fafnir Knight it is shown that he's head of Midgard Library.
