Reagents are used in conjunction with the above components to produce a whole array of potions and splash potions.

Base Affecting Reagents

Base-affecting reagents are necessary to create primary and tertiary potions and affect the duration and intensity of a tertiary potion's effects. Gunpowder affects the application of the potion when used (thrown vs. being consumed by the player).

where the thrown potion lands.

Effecting Reagents

Effecting reagents imbue Awkward Potion with a particular effect and do not affect potion duration or intensity. When brewed with a Water Bottle, any of these reagents will produce a Mundane Potion.n
