Not really tried potions but I might now after looking at them. The healing potion looks the most useful, the rest looks mostly pointless aside from maybe the Strengthening potion. How long do they last btw?

 

And they're already cheap enough as it is, make them any cheaper and you run the risk of players never actually losing money from using potions (depending on how many rounds per map they use them on). 130 gold can easily be made in 2 rounds.

To be honest, I have thought about using potions, the benefits are pretty cool...but then u remember that it costs to use it...we play the game to earn gold right? so why would would we play in a way that takes our gold?

 

 

omg rekt

Yeah, but you don't pay the price each time you swing a sword, unlike when you take a sip of a potion.

Plus there are negatives associated with potions such as the strengthening potion takes away part of your health

The only reason I would buy them is to give to someone that has just started and watch as they slowly realise that they lost 130gold by using the potion. They cri every time, and I collect the tears and sell them to Ryan so he may bathe in the tears of scrubs.

Bit late to comment but yeah, they do cost too much to use. Maybe somewhere in the range of 20-80 gold or make it free (but only one every round, not life).

 

Also thoughts about a potion that increases the drop rate of items?

 

Or maybe not a potion but like... a sack that weighs a ton (15+ maybe) for a 10-30% increase in items dropping. ((or increases money gained on kills)

 

 

Also maybe a (cheap) potion that negates fall damage for a short while.

 

Stuff that could change the way people play instead of just stat changes.

 

Hell, maybe an immunity to fire potion - so shock troops can charge through burning barricades.

 

and maybe some derp potions like.... ehm.... Shit tonnes more blood when you hit people. Or when you hit someone they make a silly noise (think when you hit someone with a torch but different sound effects)

 

Also an immunity to knockdown/crushthrough could really help too, and be nice.

 

edit:

 

OOOH, and maybe a potion that sets you on fire when you die - no idea if that could be coded in though, i know the ingame burning is done with that fire prop.  Maybe a weak (but largish) "explosion" like when a torch hits the ground. Might be a bit too derpy though.

 

 

aaaaaand maybe a potion that makes you unable to equip weapons but increases your unarmed damage alot.

 

 

 

 

 

EDIT2:

 

OH! and (againt dunno if it can be done) but a potion that increases your kick strength - not damage mind you, but distance that it pushes the guy when you kick him, so instead of kicking him back a foot it shoots him back a meter or two. would be fun/cool too - and you wouldnt have to worry bout it being used for kickslashing since they would be kicked outa range. could be really interesting on siege and in bottlenecks though, especially if the guy being kicked can stun other people he hits on the way back.... think friendly martyrs acting as human missiles.

 

again though, maybe too derpy. but cool.
