Other elixirs include U, F and X

"Jon Peters: There are numbers of elixirs. There is one healing one called Elixir H. There are currently three utility elixirs that are elixir B, U and F. And then there is an elixir X which is his elite elixir. When he drinks that, it gives him a random elite power from a different profession." from http://www.wartower.de/artikel/artikel.php?id=562

Trivia[edit]

I'm quite supprised a trivia about the origin of the elixer hasn't been added yet. Damysticreaper 16:46, 20 May 2011 (UTC)

Added Elixir Gun skill[edit]

I'm not sure of that move but anyway, I added Elixir Gun skill that stated the word 'Elixir' aka all of them execpt the spamable one (skill slot 1), but then should we also add the Elixir gun skill, event if it is stated at the start of the page? Tech Wolf-Talk 01:35, 26 May 2012 (UTC)

Elixir Gun is a weapon kit, not an elixir, so it should not be in the table. All of the Elixir Gun secondary skills, however, are elixirs, including Tranquilizer Dart. —Dr Ishmael User Dr ishmael Diablo the chicken.png 03:29, 26 May 2012 (UTC)
In BWE3, most elixir gun skills are no longer considered elixirs. Gnarf 15:51, 30 July 2012 (UTC)
Wow, I completely missed that. 1-2-3 are no longer elixirs, but 4-5 still are. —Dr Ishmael User Dr ishmael Diablo the chicken.png 16:00, 30 July 2012 (UTC)

Memory Aid[edit]

moved from User talk:Gnarf

I'm unsure if those are appropriate for the article. While potentially useful, they might be a bit too personal. Have you seen others using this aid? --JonTheMon 13:51, 19 July 2012 (UTC)

It's just an observation I made. I wondered if there is a pattern for the naming of all those elixir skills. And that's the result I came to. Feel free to add additional ones. I guess that might be helpful for those who plan to use those skills. At least that's my opinion. Maybe it's less of a note and should be Trivia? I don't know. Gnarf 13:58, 19 July 2012 (UTC)
I made the same connections a while ago, so it's not just you, Gnarf. —Dr Ishmael User Dr ishmael Diablo the chicken.png 14:38, 19 July 2012 (UTC)
There are still F and X for which I can't find an association. Maybe someone with English as his native language could find some words. Gnarf 18:11, 19 July 2012 (UTC)

Re-opening the discussion. Do you think they could be helpful? A wiki is primarily used to help the user, providing information. Like for creating builds or completing a quest. Considering this, wouldn't memory aids be a helpful information to learn what the somewhat cryptic named moves are used for? I personally couldn't remember all those elixirs if I didn't associate them with those notes.

Maybe we should move them to Trivia? — Gnarf ~ El Psy Congroo ~ 07:33, 7 August 2012 (UTC)

Not saying anything about the usefulness of this, but F could be something like "Fast" as it affects speed. As for X, chemical X or similar stuff is often used in superhero origin stories, so it likely doesn't stand for anything, but is probably a reference. Misery 07:50, 7 August 2012 (UTC)
