Icon legend for *all* buffs

PostSun Nov 27, 2016 12:21 pm

Fwiw, I have put in my time on this, googling and visiting different pages and etc. if there's a simple resource for this and I've been missing it, it's not for lack of trying.

I can find explanations of individual buff icons, I.E. the wiki and the forum easily explain a question like "what is the curly black thing that looks like a wave?", and the wiki page on stats or enhancements or something has a complete list of the possible buffs, but it's *without icons*, its text-only. What I want is a simple legend that *visually* displays all the possible icons for stats on swords/trinkets/armor, and then explains what each one does.

Frankly I feel like such a thing must exist somewhere, so it has to be a google fail on my part. It seems like a thing many, many other people must have sought, but I can find no *complete* list, only partial lists of different kinds.

Any help?

(Btw any resource inside the new update is unavailable to me. I've played for hours upon hours with my 8 yo daughter and she adamantly refuses to throw away everything we've done so far--so I very likely will never update.)

The Stats page on the wiki should be it. But might be missing some images, I'll look into it when I get a chance.

Update: Dug into the wiki a bit. The stats page is 50/50, since it never really got updated recently. That's 50% outdated icons from older versions and 50% icons that never got added because they didn't used to exist. I've got most everything ready for the wiki, but it's currently not allowing any edits... *sigh*

Progress! ...sort of.

Image
This looked better in my head. I need peoples opinions. First off, would something like that (and similar for weapons) be better, or would you prefer a more text based* list? Second, what armor related icons are missing from that image? I feel like I'm missing a couple.

*Similar to the resistances and other sections of >this< wiki page, with icons and a line of text.

(I feel like I've already answered my first question, and it's not what I just did. Dammit.)

That looks good to me, better than I had in mind even. I think there are even other symbols too though. Like, what's that sparkly icon that's shown for potions? And isn't there something like a little guy running too?

The sparkly potion thing is what's come to be known as "potency", nobody really knows much about it. It's vaguely mentioned in the in-game tutorial:
Varying the reagents alters the effect and the strength of the potion.
Using better bottles enhances the duration instead. Discover them all!


Looking at the group of icons in the game files the only running sort of thing I see is what I put in my last post. But like I said, I do feel like I'm missing things. I'll work on tools, weapons, and the rest later.

:) Mostly done on the wiki. http://wiki.pixbits.com/wiki/Category:Stats
What do you think? Any suggestions?

Also can anyone tell me what these two icons are, or if they're even used?

Potency is explained on the Steam forums, I believe...

If memory serves, the higher the potency, the higher the buff (so a Potion of Acid Resist with a potency of 0 would give a +3% bonus, but with Potency of 15 would give a +50% bonus)...

I have no experience on steam (can't even get into my account apparently), but I couldn't find anything there.
I found this bit from you, which is basically what I've always known. I've just never prioritized actually making a bunch of potions and seeing how the numbers relate.

Imthedci wrote:Potentcy appears to be a modifier to the bonus/strength of a potion. So the higher the potency, the more useful the potion. Example - a Potion of Lava Resistance has a base bonus (potentcy 0) of +6%. However, it's maximum bonus (potentcy 15) is +100%.

I don't know about the one that kind of looks like a fireball, but the one that looks like a clock is actually a clock. At least I think it is. It looks a lot like the icon that you see in the recipe book for building a clock and for making things with clocks.

Isn't the one that looks like a clock meant to be how long a potion lasts? Or no?
:yawn:

That's it! It's kind of embarrassing how many times I've seen that without actually seeing it. I guess all I really pay attention to on potions is whether they do something useful enough to justify chest space.
