Just for fun

A buddy and I have been trying weird/funny builds latley, since mfing is boring.

I got an idea when I was messing around with the skill planner.

Wouldn't it be fun to join low level games and pk people with potions? That would be hilarious!! Joining some act1 norm game with ppl lvl 1-8 and hunting them down, killing them with exploding potions (Actually oil potions). That would be funny. I would laugh my butt off if someone pk'ed me with an oil potion.

Any build could do this, but my friend and I would do this for kicks so we would go as a team.

Here are my questions.

1. Would conviction increase the damage of potions (Oil Potion, Rancid Gas Potion) to other players?

2. Would throw mastery increase the damage of throwing potions?

3. Would double throw work with throwing potions?

4. Would enchant effect the damage of throwing potions?

If all the answears to these questions are yes, then we could go as a conviction/thrower combo after enchant from demon limb. The pally reduces their defense, while the barb flings potions at a crazy speed.

What do you think?

First of all I think player killing other people is stupid...kill some of your friends instead.

1. Rancid Gas Potions deal poison damage, so that won't work with Conviction...other one don't know.
2. No
3. Don't know, but I'm thinking no.
4. No

It's nice to have fun...but not at other peoples expence:)

I know it's only low-level characters you're after but still it would be annoying.

1 yes
2 no
3 not sure but could easily be tested, (I think it should work)
4 no

Conviction effects the enemy resistance, but other +/- resistances will not effect potions since they effect your attack. lower resistance and conviction are the only ways to increase the effect of thrown potions. thrown potions are wierd they work kind of like a skill on their own, its like having a 20 charges lvl 3 fireblast. there is no way you can increase its damage, just decrease enemy resistance.

Sure if you have a skill point in double throw it would take you like 2 minutes to test in normal.

players 8, blood moor drops them pretty regularly, they are the best money makers early on they take up 1 spot make 200+ gold and drop really often early on.

good to know they both throw with double throw.

So a double throw potion barb can work. That would be a sight to see. I think most people would actually find it funny to have a potion throwing pk after them. I know I would.

Yah that would probably happen a lot I bet. If that wouldn't work, I got another idea. Potion dueling. Now THAT would be funny. I remember this one duel, I ran behind a big rock to escape a bunch of guided arrows, and this fire druid starts lobbing strangling gas potions at me.

I laughed, he laughed, then I ran out form behind the rock and killed him with a few spears. He was not laughing after that. :clap:

(Didn't read all the replies so I don't know if it's been answered already)

Double throw does work with potions. It's just kinda pointless with poison potions, you'd just use twice as many. The poison damage would be the same.
