Explosion and Greater Conflageration Potions (Idea)

Discussion in 'UHall' started by Victoria Navarre, Dec 2, 2010.

  1. I would like to see new potions added to the alchemy menu that run along side the conflag and explosion potions. Instead of doing fire damage as they do,we should be given an option to add a 2nd regeant to the mix to add a different element-damage type.

    To achieve a "cold explosion/cold conflageration field",for example,we could add pig iron or add the four regs that are needed to cast mind blast(mandrake,blackpearl,nightshade,and sulpher ash).This could be followed with every elemental damage type we have in the game. This could also be a way to use blackrock(chaos damage)? This would give us a reason to keep the blackrock we mine up.

    Why I would personally would like to see this introduced is that some mobs highest resist is fire. I would like an option to attack a mobs weakest resist,and in most cases it isn't fire.

    Sounds good, since those potions really are pretty useless in PvM.

    I'll check back in a few days to see how overpowering our PvP clan will find it. :)
  3. It really shoudn't be OP at all. It would only do direct damage like the explo/conflag potions do,just in a different element.

    excellent idea!
    "Noxious Gas" pot that bursts out like a poison strike
    "Arctic Touch" the blast of cold.
    "Lightning in a Bottle" for electric energy.
    "Pop Rocks" for some Physical dmg.

    I would just like Conflag pots NOT to be bugged...because as of right now they're worthless in PvP...
  7. I agree with this. Even in PvM the target has to move before taking damage because the tile it is standing on isn't effected by the conflageration :(

    From a pvp Standpoint, This is a Fantastic Idea and Should have no effect on pvp.
  9. From a pvp standpoint,hitting someone with a "frost" potion would only hit harder if they lacked the same cold resist as they did in fire.If they are running all 70's(as any pvp'r with half a brain will do) it will not make any difference,damage wise. The real difference will come in PvM where some mobs have a much higher resist against fire than energy,cold,physical and poison.
