Talk:Revival Potion (5e Equipment)

Page changed because BigShotFancyMan felt it needed to be more accurately explained, which it did! Since that meant I could make the potion more viable across all levels of the campaign. --Supersmily5 (talk) 06:26, 16 June 2018 (MDT)

Hey Supersmily5, while I do like the idea behind an item that can revive the user when they die, the item does have a few problems. These problems include the fact that a potion's effect should require an action to use, this item can be heavily abused by having more than one of it and likely should have attunement to better balance it out(you can only be attuned to one copy of an item at a time and you have an attunement limit of 3 items, but you can't attune to a potion) and this item is too powerful for being a very rare item, it should likely be of legendary rarity. Because of these issues, I would like to hear your thoughts about possibly converting this into a legendary wondrous item that requires attunement and has the same effect.--Blobby383b (talk) 17:48, 16 June 2018 (MDT)

I don't really like the idea of such a thing being Legendary, after all that kinda makes it worthless at low levels because players would always rather sell it for that heavy price tag than use it, meaning a DM can't reasonably give it to experienced players at low levels. But 5e MUST be balanced against the players I guess, so I made the changes accordingly. --Supersmily5 (talk) 07:43, 17 June 2018 (MDT)

However, potions that revive people DO EXIST across fantasy landscapes, and the whole point of this potion is being able to revive the bearer without their input. That shouldn't be changed because at that point it basically just makes it a healing potion. As you probably know, those are much less rare. --Supersmily5 (talk) 07:45, 17 June 2018 (MDT)
