Potions!

So here's the idea. once you get 7 wizard towers, an upgrade pops up that says "you may now brew potions".
When bought, a potion upgrade appears that when your mouse hovers on it a sub menu shows up with all the different potions you have unlocked. they all have costs and brew times. you pay the cost and wait the brew time, and it pops up next to your upgrades. you click on it, you get the effect. Then, you can make more potions! (once you have a potion, you cant make more while you still have it.)

Ideas:

-Cookie potion:
cost: your cps*70000 cookies
brew time: 3 hours
effect: double your cookies.

-Brewer's potion:
cost: your cps*5000 cookies
brew time: 1 hour
effect: for the next 8 hours, all potions only take 1 hour to brew.

-Flaming potion:
cost: 5% of your cps while this is brewing
brew time: 8 hours
effect: for 1 week, your cookie is protected from enemies (thing like wrinklers) and when they try to eat your cookie, destroy them and get 10 million cookies.

-Illusion potion:
cost: # of buildings you own*100000 cookies
brew time: 3 days
effect: choose a building. unlock any upgrades you would unlock if you were to have 15 more of that building than you currently have.

-Summoning potion:
cost: # of buildings you own*300000 cookies
brew time: 12 hours
effect: construct 4 random buildings of types you own at least one of.

-Other-world potion:
cost: your cps*66666 cookies
brew time: 13 hours
effect: summon an other-worldly wrinkler. while it is alive, you get -25% cps.

upgrades:

-Old cauldron:
unlock: own 7 wizard towers
cost: 200 million cookies
effect: unlock potions. unlock the "cookie potion".
text: "a bit leaky"

-Sorcerer's stash:
unlock: have brewed 7 potions
cost: 777^how many time you've bought this upgrade before+1
effect: unlock a random new potion. repeatable. costs more each time you use this upgrade.

feel free to post potion ideas below.

    i mean, you cant make more when you already have one.

    Nice idea, though the flaming potion is useless, since wrinklers are the most helpful part of the grandmapocalypse, so disabling them but keeping red cookies would only be detrimental compared to pledging.

    Balancing is a severe issue.

    All potions would be blatantly underpriced for experienced players.

    500 million is nothing for cookie potion, and the gain is useless for lategame, too.

    Brewer's potion literally just makes the other potions easier to brew.

    And flaming potion only damages a long-time strategy of experienced players.

    like so:

    -Illusion potion:
    cost: 10 trillion cookies
    brew time: 3 days
    effect: choose a building. unlock any upgrades you would unlock if you were to have 15 more of that building than you currently have.


    -Summoning potion:
    cost: 10 trillion cookies
    brew time: 12 hours
    effect: construct 4 random buildings of types you own at least one of.

    -Other-world potion:
    cost: 2.5 billion cookies
    brew time: 1 week
    effect: summon an other-worldly wrinkler. while it is alive, you get -25% cps.

    Cost of potions should be CPS dependent, with strength based around cookies drained.

    good idea
  • ZonefrogZonefrog Posts: 20Member
    i changed the suggestion to fit that idea.

    The Brewer's Potion would take over 1 day's worth of cookies to afford, if my calculations are correct. Way overpriced for it's effects.

    Cookie potion can literally be afforded in 25 seconds. Has literally the opposite problem when it comes to Brewer's Potion.

    Flaming potion still fucks up the Wrinkler CPS strategy. Leaving Wrinklers eating your cookie for a while, then popping them garners more cookies than keeping them away from your cookie. Overall, there's no real point to it.

    I'm not gonna go through calculating the buildings' costs.

    Other-World potion also takes a ludicrous amount of time to afford for it's effects.

    Ultimately, this whole suggestion would need major revamping to be balanced. If Orteil implements it the way it is, people will just brew Cookie Potion when they can and that's about it.
