Alchemy Recipe's producing/requiring incorrect amount
« on: October 27, 2015, 04:07:38 AM »
I didn't see anything in the recent update notes about alchemy recipe's changing, so I'm putting this in the bug report section instead of discussion on the update, if it's not a bug but an intentional change feel free to move it.

Spoiler: Contains Alchemy Recipes • show

Pit fiend hearts, used to create three greater fire essences. They now create 1 each. This means they're the same as greater fire snake glands, which also create 1 greater essence each, but have a lower DC.

Gelugon hearts, used to create 1 greater icy essence each, now they create 1 greater icy essence per 3 hearts. This means they are the same recipe as hearts of the entombed, but with a higher DC.

Bumping, am I the only one who has noticed that alchemy was changed without any mention in the changelog?

Bumping this as well. I've noticed that...

Spoiler: show
 3 Zombie Golem hearts used to make a greater magical essence. It seems that now that one Zombie Golem heart yields 3 strong magical essences.

Unfortunately man, I have never even SEEN those ingredients before.   :lol:

I've faced this too. It's like some #s got inverted. I had

1 Elder Scrag intestine per 1 congealed acid essence, 2 normal scrag intestines per diluted, but 1 hunter intestines yeilding 2 diluted acid (with one bottle mind you)

Hmm, this seems to be due to a rebalancing that happened years ago, but by some mistake wasn't implemented. I figure this should be moved to the Game Balance forum.

Worth noting is that the comparison recipes you've listed were also tweaked so all recipes should be balanced against each other.
