Making Chemist's Potions Throwable

Post  Karifean on Sat Nov 10, 2012 2:08 am

If Chemist's Potions could be thrown at other players, that would give them an entirely new purpose and add some more depth (I think). As a payoff they could have something like double cooldown or so. It's an idea I just came up with out of the blue but I thought it might be worth it to ask whether or not you thought this was a stupid or a good idea.

Btw, Development still coming along. There's still some stuff left to do, but we're not cancelling it. Wink

When you say throwing, I first think of using them offensively, which doesn't really work for beneficial effects.
It'd definitely make the Chemist a viable choice for taking bosses. Actually having a second healer! And he comes with a cool debuff.

Being able to restore other peoples' mana would also be a nice thing to have.

Suddenly I realise I don't actually know what you're trying to do here. Would throwing be an option? When creating, or after you've made them? Or would it be a skill rebuild? Would Alchemy be affected in any way? (SUPER POTION TOSS!)

I thought simply making the "Chemist's X" items targetable. As in you click on it and then choose a target.

So does that mean your throwing the item itself or the heal from the item? I think that would be neat to throw the heal but... If I wanted to just use it on myself it sounds like now i'm gimmped out of my health potions unless Alchys can have the option to trade Chem X pots for throwable and back to non whenever they want. Kind of like how they can upgrade health potions to the next rank already, just maybe make it a toggle for swapping potions from thrown to normal and back to thrown again. I'd really hate to be potionless because I have to target myself each and every time

In light of Karifean's description, that seems like an easy fix to me. If you hit an ally, or right next to them, throws to them and heals. In every other case, heals you.
Well, this is assuming by "target" you mean unit target.

yeah I was talking about unit targeting, and as long as it would work that I could still use the potions on myself when I needed too instead of getting stalled up by this change then it sounds good and does add a extra layer to being a chemist.

thats neat... how about adding up something more like when you throw a potion to an ally... percentages dependable on potion upgrade boost friendly target's health and when thrown at mobs does an AOE damage equivalent to the percentages it heals... or... i dunno... still am waiting for the next patch
