Strategy Guide

The risk was calculated... but I'm bad at math.
This section outlines a strategy. Feel free to add tips, tricks and general advice about the topic.

  • Always drink Small Shield Potions before drinking regular Shield Potions, as those can be used to get to max shield, but not vice versa. However, if you are in possession of two Shield Potions and no Small Shield Potions, it is easier to just consume both Shield Potions than look for small ones.
