Punches & Potions - Mysticism

With the Punches & Potions patch now available on the Public Test Server (PTS) we are continuing our series previewing some of the content.

This article focuses on Mysticism and the Potions and Buffs that are involved with it. While our last article focused on the Effect Viewer.

Please note that content on the PTS server is subject to change during the test cycle and before release.

Patch NotesTop ^

  • Mysticism is a new tradeskill which allows players to craft limited duration effects by collecting Wild Trovian Mana and combining it with magical reagents.
  • Long duration Buffs, medium duration Potions, and short duration Scrolls are the tools of those who dabble in the Mystic Arts.
  • Wild Trovian Mana can be collected in Adventure Worlds from 3 biomes each week – slowly rotating through all of the available biomes.  Although the mana pool is initially limited to 1,000, it can eventually be raised to 100,000 through consuming Mana Maximizers.
  • Mysenta Cull, Mystic Merchant is hiding from Qubesly’s judicious gaze in the Fishing Grotto below Crafter’s Corner.  (If asked directly about this, she claims “the vibes are just better” in this location.)  Players can use The Orb of Mysticism workbench at her location to craft powerful Buffs using their Wild Trovian Mana pool.
    • Buffs will stay active through world changes and logouts and will last the remainder of the current day.  (Buffs applied through the last hour of a day will last until the next day ends.)
    • Buffs convert mana and reagents in to powerful utility effects like “Icebound,” which allows even non-Ice Sages the ability to walk confidently on ice without slipping!
    • Trovians can only ever have a single Buff active at a time, and applying a new one will remove the previous one.
  • Every Buff has a corresponding Potion as well – Potions are more expensive than Buffs, but also more convenient.
    • Potions only last a few hours, but they will not lose any duration while the player is offline.
    • Potions can be conveniently consumed from the inventory.
    • Potions are crafted at the Alchemystic’s Lab workbench, but all their recipes must be learnt first.
    • To learn a Potion recipe, a player must be chewing on Alchemystic’s Insight in the Auto-Use slot and have the corresponding Buff to the desired Potion.
    • Trovians can only ever have a single Potion active at a time, and applying a new one will remove the previous one.
  • Any time a Potion is purchased from the Marketplace, 1 from the stack will always be immediately consumed!  This has two benefits – you immediately know the quality of the potion from the bouquet, but also it allows Potionmakers to sell single stacks of Potions without risking others “flipping” their wares.  If you are in immediate need of a potion, simply open up the Marketplace and buy one for immediate consumption!
  • Scrolls are rare, lost magical knowledge that modern day Mystics can sometimes recover.
    • Scrolls are powerful but volatile, lasting only a short while, with effects that do not follow through world changes. 
    • Trovians can have many, many scrolls active at a time.
  • Most Giantlands Buff Scrolls do not interact with the Mysticism system.  The one exception is Freedom of Flight.
    • Only the Gold version of this scroll is still available for purchase.  Any still existing versions should still mostly function as they did before, and can be deconstructed (including the Obsidian scroll).
    • The Gold and Obsidian versions of this scroll will not stack with any Mysticism Buffs, and will remove them as if Buffs themselves.
    • Similarly, as if buffs themselves, with either of these effects active and with Alchemystic’s Insight equipped, players will be able to unlock a potion recipe for Freedom of Flight at the Alchemystic’s Lab.
  • Crafting a Mysticism recipe will occasionally trigger an additional reward, similar to how crafting titles occasionally grants an additional title.
  • A Mystic’s Reagent Stash has been added to the store, allowing players to acquire reagents necessary for their Mystic Arts, including both Mana Maximizers and Crystallized Trovian Mana.  Crystallized Trovian Mana can be converted in to Wild Trovian Mana 1,000 at a time at no cost, allowing players to stockpile Mana to fund their future crafting.  This does count as a Mysticism craft.
