Note: Images are iDevice friendly Thanks to slayerbob for giving me spy attack and defense images Potions For Dummies Potions General Info Potions, Pots, Items, whatever you want to call them. Potions are used for obtaining key leverage to win a battle, whether defending from another kingdom or attacking another kingdom. Potions are also used in EBs (Epic Battles) to gain money for the end bonus and completing the EB. Potions are great for smaller players who need to hit the bigger EBs. * Please Note: Spy Defense Potions ARE NOT used when another player scouts you, only Steals/Assassinations. Spy Defense potions are extremely important. Especially against hansels/OSFs in off system wars. You got to make sure you have lots of these so they don’t crystal 42 times and strip you of gold * Potion (Pot) burning, where you consistently hit an opponent, losing but forcing the opponent to use their defense/spy defense potions. Then, when the opponent finally runs out of potions you can make a full scale attack on them. This is why you must keep track of your potions and keep in stock when in war. * If you are not in an OSW, think about it. If you had 4b out, and someone attacks you and wins, you lose about...12m? People don't think that they lose more spending on pots then they'd lose if you have pots. I can see why in OSW, you don't want your hitter to make money. Remember, you can not completely rely on potions, but you must rely on activity if you are in a war. Potions are only used when you buy or use them. Activity always counts. ** Potions can affect your bonus at the end, but only if: The Potion is required in the EB (very easy $$$) MissMelon has proven that even if the Potion increases your damage, payout does not go up.
