Bug[edit]

Cesseilia seems to be bugged. On Kodash [DE] just now no one was able to get the potions brewed and thus no process for the heart was possible.The preceding unsigned comment was added by 192.168.104.83 (talk • contribs) at 18:38, 17 September 2012 (UTC).

I can confirm. There is an infinite event "Clear undead from the oasis" where it does not seem to be possible to get the undead counter below 3. 5.56.201.155 19:27, 21 September 2012 (UTC)
It still does not appear to be possible to clear the undead, but it is possible to get the heart without clearing them. You just have to keep killing...


Combinations research[edit]

I'm leaving my notes here in case anyone wants to re-check them. It's also a guide to make it unneeded to manually check every combination. But I am fairly sure I have been torough and didn't make any mistake.

  • Skill slot #1: Frog Legs and Fern
  • Skill slot #2: Mushroom and Sparkfly
  • Skill slot #3: Coral and Eagle Feathers
  • Skill slot #4: Vine

Logically, that excludes every single possibility containing two items that use the same skill slot. From manually trying I found that also clashing are Frog Legs with Mushroom, Fern with Vine, Sparkfly with Coral, and Eagle Feathers with Vine.

If you then write down all combinations you can limit to any combination using 3 or 4. That's because 5 ingredients isn't possible; there isn't a single item under that skill slot #5. Scratch down combinations that clash according to above lines. Test the clashing duos yourself if you want. I ended up with only 7 viable combinations, of whom all with have only 3 ingredients. There isn't a single combination of 4 that doesn't clash. I manually tried each of remaining 7 and they all took on the skillbar. It might be fun to see what each combination does -- fern, mush, coral made the spider huge I believe. Disconnect 20:39, 8 November 2012 (UTC)


I have being trying some combinations too, and it's hard to get the last ones you need to end the heart (all got repeated or brown). The one that seemed to work properly were the 3 animals (sparkfly, eagle and frog). And the one she suggest you is mushroom, fern and eagle. Joi 20:39, 11 November 2012 (UTC)

Full Solution[edit]

Here is a list of all the incompatibilities (each item is incompatible with two other items):

  • Fern: Frog, Vine
  • Frog: Fern, Mushroom
  • Mushroom: Frog, Sparkfly
  • Sparkfly: Mushroom, Coral
  • Coral: Sparkfly, Eagle
  • Eagle: Coral, Vine
  • Vine: Fern, Eagle

The following should therefore be all possible good combinations:

  • Fern, Mushroom, Coral
  • Fern, Mushroom, Eagle
  • Fern, Sparkfly, Eagle
  • Frog, Sparkfly, Eagle
  • Frog, Sparkfly, Vine
  • Frog, Coral, Vine
  • Mushroom, Coral, Vine

Assuming you use each discovered potion on a spider and kill it, and you don't get any additional heart progress in other ways (such as killing other people's spiders or participating in the dynamic event), you'll complete the heart when you discover the fourth potion (before having to use it on a spider).

Character stuck after brewing potion[edit]

After brewing a potion, character gets stuck and is unable to move. Requires character select to fix. --BryghtShadow (talk) 11:36, 11 September 2014 (UTC)

I can comfirm that.
Yup. Nothing else will work. Teleports, stun breakers, forced movement evades like fiery retreat, using a waypoint... Nothing solves the problem other than reloading the character.MithUser MithranArkanere Star.pngTalk 18:21, 25 September 2014 (UTC)
I'm having the same problem. I bought the Heroic Edition just a few weeks ago. Could it be something wrong with the newer game install? Would love to see this fixed. The preceding unsigned comment was added by 97.81.135.56 (talkcontribs).
Nope, a new instal is no different to any other. My 2 years old install has the same problem. Just one of a raft of problems introduced with the latest mega patch. — snogratUser Snograt signature.png 06:29, 26 September 2014 (UTC)
