View Full Forums : Alchemy - Which potions do you use?

09-19-2005, 10:32 AM
I only seem to use Healing, Mana & Defense potions on a regular basis, havent really had the need for any others. Is this the way for all or is there something I am missing? Will they become more useful the higher level I get?

How about listing your most commonly used potions and also where you have found a need for the less common ones?

i use all the potions im able to make - i consider it a great stat-boost that compensates for the lack of nice equipment which either is too expensive or too hard to obtain for the moment.

when im potion-boosted (and i am), i rarely see any other characters of the same class - or similar - that has better stats, more hp, ac and mana than me.

I used to use a lot of stat potions, when I was leveling up to 60. Now, the only potions I use are mana, heal, free action and swiftness. The last two I used sparingly in WSG, no real need for them in AB. As for mana and heals, I find the ones I can buy in the officer's quarters are more beneficial, as I can buy those for a lot cheaper than the ones I can make (meaning, I can sell the raw herbs for more than what the pvp potions cost).

Hmmm. I use mana/health potion variants most often. But also use a decent amount of resist potions.

Less commonly, Swiftness, Invis, Int, Spell power variants, Water Breathing.

And for others, things like Mongoose.

My extreem newbness uses weak troll blood (low level regen potion) alot so I don't have to unshift as much. I would give anything to have a runspeed potion though. I am rediculously slow. I can't wait until travel form. Just can't wait.
