Explanation of potion doesn't match reality

Hi,

I'll have to describe it, as I only know the Dutch name: Vernuftscheppende Tiverdrank...

The green bottle potion (wide bottom, star on it) says in the description that the effect of spells on Elite opponents is 50% stronger and lasts 30min.

However, using it shows a 3x effect countdown.

1) That's not 30min...

2) Then I can just as well use an Exstimulo potion. There's only a strength difference then maybe, but I'd indeed rather have it lasting a certain time then a certain amount of spells.


Regards,

Walter.

(I only post it here because bug reporting cannot be done elsewhere anymore. But note that I will not often be here for discussing along.)

    @EaglesW I’m not sure if the description is different in Dutch, here’s what I see in English:



    It says 3 spell cast duration and not 30 minutes.

    Hi @Dewin99,

    Thanks for the screenshot. Apparently there's indeed a wrong description text in the Dutch version!

    So a correction is needed for sure.


    I think it's a pity that the Dutch is wrong... as I would rather have it last 30min than 3x. With 30min it would be more distinctive from Exstimulo potions. And since the 50% more power is only on Elite opponents, you're not sure the 3x usage is effective either, unless you make certain to only encounter Elites. While 30min would give possibilities to encounter Elites and less powerful opponents in a mix.

    The 3x makes it a bit useless...


    Greetz,

    Walter.

    @EaglesW Agreed! I too would love it to last for 30 minutes!

    @hpwulola see above. It looks like someone needs to look at the dutch translation for wit-sharpening. Thank you!

    you need to use wit sharpening potion in conjunction with exstimulo potion or it doesn't work.

    @Caecelious a wit sharpening potion can be used on its own against elite foes and it does work without extimulo potions. Since you cannot use more than one extimulo at a time, the advantage with a wit sharpening potion is that you can stack it with an extimulo when fighting elites, which is particularly helpful during solo play in high chambers.
