Alchemy Alchemy[edit]

  • HGH HGHElixirs grant might, have reduced recharge, and have increased duration.


  • Very useful against melee foes, especially ones who have been hit by Elixir F or another crippling attack, which forces them to stay in the puddle longer and receive more damage.
  • Acid Bomb will hit a total of 6 times, 7 when traited with HGH.
  • The leap backwards can be cancelled by pressing the swap weapon button.
  • Although the skill is categorized as an Elixir skill in-game, it does not benefit from Alchemical Tinctures. Likely because it is not "thrown or consumed."
