    Default A truly fiendish idea. The devs should love it!

    Had a stack of about 23 Potions of Wonder go bye-bye to a crit earlier in the Manufactury and it got me to thinking... Wouldn't it be awesome if when Wonder Pots smash this way their unstable contents activate as if you'd drank the potion? So in my example above, I'd suddenly get 23 Potion of Wonder rolls and a chance at going out in a genuine blaze of glory with 23 Droaam Death Charges!

    It should be the new Vorpal effect. Very effective. It wipes out your enemies, friends and the entire dungeon!

    I think it should be this way for all potions.
    Hit breaks a curse pot you get cursed
    Hit breaks a heal pot you take damage
    Hit breaks a resist pot you are now vulnerable to that type of elemental damage
    Hit breaks a remove blindness you are now blind.

    It would certainly make things more fun.

    I dunno, all those potions have stable, predictable effects. It's only the Potion of Wonder that's basically Chaos in a Can.

    I thought the fiendish idea might be a potions bag?

    Far too useful to be genuinely fiendish. BTW, nice soapbox.

    That which does not kill you gives you experience points.

    I like this idea. It makes me want to buy and carry around lots of Potions of Wonder just to see it happen. >

    Very cool idea.

    Also... new artificer spell... Admixture: Potion of Wonder!

    A:PoW! being the most apt acronym ever.

    Suicide Bomber build. Domain: War. Death Pact essential. Have fun trolling and making people panik every drink-pot animation.

    I like it. Extend it to any magical item that breaks. If my weapon breaks completely during combat or due to dying and it taking enough damage to break it should explode and deal either magical damage or random wacky effects to friendlies and mobs. More incentive to not die rather than a repair bill later.
