Risen. If I had to complain about one thing in Risen, it's that the game is extremely stingy with mana potions.
True. That's actually very common in all Piranha Bytes' games: mana potions are always way, waaaay less than health ones.
That's why having at least a level in alchemy and picking up *every* plant you can find is very helpful, especially in the earlier sections! :)
I cannot say I don't understand this choice, though: mages are usually much more powerful than the other classes, so some limitation is needed.
Yeah you're right on all points. I've got alchemy up to its max and I've been picking up every single plant I can haha, I just haven't had time to make (or buy for that matter) any mana potions since I'm in a new area and haven't found its teleport stone. As far as finding mana potions, I've probably found less than thirty overall and I've explored most of the map (including cave systems), looted every downed enemy and opened everything that wasn't locked. Luckily you're never too far from a bed, there is almost always one within a minute or two's walk.
I've played a bit of Edna & Harvey: The Breakout for the first time in months, I remember most of the story but I'm in a area that just isn't very fun. For those that have played, I'm referring to Laundry Level 2, and the area before it (the journey to be able to use the laundry system). I enjoyed the earlier parts of the game and I'm still enjoying the dialogue and humor but that is about it.
