Do Elixirs actually work?

9 posts in this topic

Posted

Hello everyone!

I spent more than few minutes with some guildies trying a couple of elixirs and we saw no difference testing the output of damage.

I will list the ones we tested:

- Brutal Death Elixir (both Party and single target version)

- Elixir of Fury (both Party and single target version)

- Brutal Carnage (only Party version of this one)

- Steel Defense only single target version of this one)

- Perfect Human Hunt (both Party and single target version)

- Perfume of Courage

Between all of them the only one that was working (according to our damage test) was the whale one.

We did multiple tests with different characters (wizard, sorceress... ) using a single skill or a small rotation... no real difference of damage variation has been notice.

I'm sure we have been super careful in testing those avoiding evasion/accuracy possible issues... so now my question is: Are those even working? Many players are using them... none ever raised this issue?

Would love to hear the opinion of someone else on this topic :)

Side story. I was on a Mashwa last night leveling. Had a bunch of low end crystals and dropped them in to storage. Switched to Sorc (This character) and grinded them down to blackstone powder. Switched back to the Maehwa and was running down a road when I got a system message telling me I had reached Artisan Gathering. The Maehwa has no gathering experience, the Sorc that I had logged in to and out of 5 minutes earlier does.

The point in that story, if that level of system latency occurs with buffs, you might activate a buff but when it kicks in? Who knows?

accuracy elixrs don't work either... I'm pretty sure no accuracy food actually buffs accuracy.  Some guy did some pretty elaborate testing and was able to calculate how much accuracy various items in the game give you.. All of the food/elixr buffs he tested didn't give jack shit!

You will get that artisan gathering message after every character swap...

Elixir of concentration work in Pvp. i do the test with/without bheg glove  with/without elixir. Blue Concentration elixir give almost the bheg glove ( just a little less) accuracy. but bheg + elixir just... wierd.. no effect..i feel like accuracy are caped..or some accuracy stat dont stack.. also i remove my bheg glove for  Tet heve glove now with 2x +1 atk/casting speed +2 accuracy. i dont see the difference with 6 less accuracy lol. but love my +9 DP +150HP.

This isn't the only thing that's bugged, also crit damage food/elixirs are the same (don't work).

Also, +attack from elixir has little or no effect in pvp (http://www.inven.co.kr/board/powerbbs.php?come_idx=3584&p=3&l=30834).

Yep, the amazing dude that did the spreadsheet has proven that they don't work in PVP.

They should however work as intended in PVE against mobs & bosses.
