New Potions in Land of the Dead
~Notice: These vendors were removed from the game as they weren’t meant to go to Live yet. They will hopefully return in the future, but their offerings may not be the same as shown below.~
So along with the sneakiness that was the new Land of the Dead-themed Mount, Mythic also snuck in some new potions purchasable only with the Scarabs you get in Zandri onto the Public Test Server.
Unlike the mount, these were completely unannounced. I’m not even sure they’ll go live with the patch, but they very well could. I’ll check first thing when the servers come up.
Either way, looks like people’s request for more purchasable items via tokens was answered in some ways with this patch. Hopefully this is a sign of more good things to come in future patches.
Let’s take a look at the new stuff!
There are three different categories of potions available on the new vendor: Heal, Action Point, and Scarab.
There are four different levels of each potion, each with a different cost.
Level 1 – Requires Rank 31 and costs 5 Silver Scarabs
Level 2 – Requires Rank 36 and costs 10 Silver Scarabs
Level 3 – Requires Rank 40 and costs 5 Gold Scarabs
Level 4 – Requires Rank 40 and costs 15 Gold Scarabs
The Heal and AP potions appear to use the same cooldown timer as the ones purchased with Officer Medallions from RvR. I’m not sure about the Scarab potion yet as I had no Thorn potions on me to test.
Level 1 – Cloudy Elixir of Basth – 2046 health
Level 2 – Clear Elixir of Basth – 2346 health
Level 3 – Vibrant Elixir of Basth – 2598 health
Level 4 – Radiant Elixir of Basth – 2850 health
Action Point Potions
Level 1 – Stale Blood of Asaph – 136 AP
Level 2 – Aged Blood of Asaph – 156 AP
Level 3 – Invigorating Blood of Asaph – 173 AP
Level 4 – Purified Blood of Asaph – 190 AP
Flesh-Eating Scarab Potions
Level 1 – Swarm of Desert Scarabs – 5 seconds, 205 damage once per second per target
Level 2 – Swarm of Corpse Scarabs – 5 seconds, 235 damage once per second per target
Level 3 – Swarm of Flesh-Eating Scarabs – 5 seconds, 260 damage once per second per target
Level 4 – Swarm of Khsar Scarabs – 5 seconds, 285 damage once per second per target
Definitely gives people something to spend their Scarabs on now. Also kind of encourages people to hunt down kills in Land of the Dead too for both the quest and invading for Cartouches to break down into Scarabs. 1 Cartouche = 25 Gold Scarabs.
Not to mention the fact that Scarabs are tradable, which also makes this addition an interesting economic feed for people to buy/sell Scarabs thus effectively making these new potions purchasable with gold. Quite the interesting move. We’ll find out once the servers are up if it went live with this patch or not. I’m hoping so. I have a bunch of Scarabs burning a hole in my currency bag. 😉
Have fun with 1.3.5!
