Yeah. The new, and only, problem with the current Tri-Sword is it makes no thematic sense. Quaffing a potion gives you two base? The potion and the number two are confusing.

And how are you getting 18 potions? I see 4 strength (+8), 1 reflex (+2), and the 8 starting potions (+10). That's 26 base, and I'm confused on where the last 5 potions are coming from.

I've gotten 29 potions in one run before (Naga City Halfling Tinkerer).

Yeah, but Naga City isn't a candidate for a 1-time all-in attack.

How are you getting THAT much piety, or the 29 necessary potions? Darvin's 720 conversion number only gives you 9 more potions, bringing you to 13...

He's using the tinker's alchemy scrolls to convert the monster trophies into gold, which he then tributes to TT in order to buy a shit load of reflex and quicksilver potions.

Yeah, but 29 health potions? That's insane.

Yep. It and Gaan'telet are the ones where it wouldn't work at all. Any of the others at least have easy access to a boss to skip a few levels.

Tri-sword now triggers on any potion and TT gives you one each of Reflex and Quicksilver for a single health potion. That was the run where I drank 22 potions and still got Feeling Parched.

1 Whupaz
1 Schadenfreude
12 Reflex
8 Quicksilver

Oh! I thought you got twenty-nine reflex AND quicksilver potions. God that would be broken.

You'd have a hard time actually using them, since you only get one reflex potion per attack and typically quicksilver only activates once every couple hits. Of course, it looks like he wasn't really putting the apothecary to full use here, either...

Was it even existent back then? Yeah, I like Relex potions much more than quicksilver. I think they should be raised to 20%, and then +20% every attack.
