To clarify, you used it before the server went down?


Correct. I had 7 of the 10 topaz gypsum when the server went down.

Yeah, this changed after the most recent patch the morning of the 18th. I haven’t yet had a chance to check whether its a case of the topaz potion time ticking down when offline (I don’t think this is a thing in new world but shrug), or if the potion buff just totally clears on logout.

If I were to guess, it’ll tick when offline. As far as I’m aware, the potion just sets a time when it’ll be done, and I guess it’s not adjusted for the downtime.

Bump - This also happened to two of us. Each had an hour left before the patch. We often (in times past) have done that, and the next time logging in we can use the remainder - not this time after patch

It’s definitely just clearing on full logout, I tested it just now after getting my drops for the day. 1+ hours left on the potion and 5 minutes offline killed it.

Same here.
Buff is gone, even if you have more than an hour left. Complete finish the Game, after login again, buff is gone.

Thank you for this report! Looking into this!

Before the last patch, I would regularly do my topaz run and fully log off with an hour or more on my potion left. When I logged in 20 hours or so later, that potion was still running and I could get more topaz off of it. After the last patch, this is no longer the case. My food buffs stick around but not the topaz potion. I also lost the topaz potion I had taken right before the patch, hoping to finish off my run after the patch.

I do this also, can get 2 runs from one potion this way.

I just used a topaz potion for the first time after hitting level 60. Game crashed shortly after (2 minutes after taking the potion) and when I logged back in the buff effect was removed. I tried killing level 55+ normal and named monsters to test if it was a display bug and after about half hour and no gypsum drop, the buff is definitely removed. :frowning:

They are fixing the Topaz potion with tonight’s update.
