Voidrunner.5093 Posted November 30, 2021 Share Posted November 30, 2021 (edited) Elixirs are still lackluster, and that's not an elixir problem; Engie elixirs are pretty fun. Throwable is a step in the right direction. I do miss the drink animation. My first thought is "make only some of them throwable and some of them drinkable." That way some of the elixirs can be reenvisioned into more throwable potential.The Good Throwables applying condis are excellent!! an ELIXIR APPLYING LIFEFORCE IS GOOD!!! This is good. I like that the heal elixir, Elixir of Promise applies poison. It needs to apply more poison since you are sacrificing a heal skill if at a distance. They dont all have to be throwables, but if they are then no harm The elite elixir is like this close range bomb because if you throw while you are in its affects then the enemy starts taking 25might of condidamage from 5 different condis. . . . .give it fear Current effect suggestions Elixir of Promise should apply more poison 2stacks Elixir of Ignorance should apply longer blindness 3s (for chill synergy) Elixir of Ambition could apply fear (long enough for at least 1 tick of terror). More Interesting Effects That said. What more could be done to give Harbinger a memorable elixir set? Elixirs that do more than just boons, or give wierder boons and condis I think aoe fear should be in a throwable elixir. I also think throwable stun break would be unique. Superspeed instead of swiftness would be better. Engie has access to invuln in an elixir and thats actually a fun one. Necro could get one too with a caviat or a boon to make it different from the engie elixir. Maybe necro could have an elixir that prevents downstate if they take lethal damage within the time frame. Or just the invuln would be fine. Interesting Elixir effects can include Elixirs that summon parasites Elixirs that apply blight to the enemy (necro v necro might be weird in this one) Elixirs that turn on friendly fire (a potion that causes the afflicted to go insane) Surviving Lethal maybe. IDK something fun and cool. A death nova on down state while under potion effects would be cool. Tons of toughness added? Idk something special. These are just directions rather than suggestions. I'm expressing the desire for more luster in the spec's utilities all previous elite specs have been unique and memorable. Even the shouts on reaper had tons of style! Again, a throwable fear potion would be in character. Fear is also a very fun condi. This is a missed opportunity The Elixirs still need a bit more style. Its almost there just needs just a bit more creativity. A fear potion at the very least.Names Also all these Elixirs need knew names. Elixir of Promise is a heal potion thats poisonous to enemies. Name it something more necro The Elixir's have the most non necro names, very out of character. Elixir of Bliss? sounds like a mesmer. Here are some necromancer elixir names: Elixir of Madness Antivenom Tonic Witchhunter's Brew Nightmare Elixir/Elixir of Nightmare Krait Oil Spider Juice Marrow Syrup Vial of Corruption Kybright Potion Elixir of Mercury Vial of Undeath Aatxe Elixir Elixir of Ectoplasm Jar of Ghosts Elixir of Anguish is fine Edited November 30, 2021 by Voidrunner.5093 edits Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
