Yeah, since I told Andy the mead wasn't so good with its lack he decided to make it transmutable (such a good idea!) and now he's the potion farming guy we all wanted! Lol.
Swiping with thousand mead bottle is make you tired. And im doing it right now hue hue. I hope Andy change the Mechanics in Next version. .
I just filed a ticket for Holgar's potion flood to be re-balanced in 0.9.3. Any suggestions/ideas how to do this, anybody? Ideas are very welcome. I'm still brainstorming myself ;-)
Warlemming suggested making Holgar's potions purple so they can't be transmutable. But that'd be super annoying to have unusable potions in your inventory (no one wants to stack Holgar's actual potions on a tower, the stacking deficit would be awful). Maybe making the drop chance less likely and making it a white potion. Coupled with the change back to swiping 4 potions to upgrade, Holgar wouldn't be so broken.
@Andy: For me, i feel that the current Holgar is good, instead of holgar getting potions by chance, why not let him make a potion for every 50 creeps that he kills?
