The Potion of Paralytic Gas is a harmful potion.

Its class name in save files is "com.​watabou.​pixeldungeon.​items.​potions.​PotionOfParalyticGas".

Description

Potion of Paralytic Gas
Upon exposure to open air, the liquid in this flask will vaporize into a numbing yellow haze. Anyone who inhales the cloud will be paralyzed instantly, unable to move for some time after the cloud dissipates. This item can be thrown at distant enemies to catch them within the effect of the gas.


Obtaining

The Potion of Paralytic Gas can be found randomly at regular depths (not at Boss depths), and in Shops, or as a random drop from Dwarf warlock or brewed through alchemy.

When drank

Drinking confirmation
Are you sure you want to drink it? In most cases you should throw such potions at your enemies.

1000 units of Paralytic gas blob are released at the Hero's position and then spreads 1 tile per turn (in each of the cardinal directions, never diagonally). Any character present on an affected tile will be unable to move as long as the gas remains on that tile.

When thrown

1000 units of Paralytic gas blob are released at the impact point and then spreads 1 tile per turn (in each of the cardinal directions, never diagonally). Any character present on an affected tile will be unable to move as long as the gas remains on that tile.

Throwing a Potion of potion of Paralytic gas

Tips

  • Do not use it in combination with Potion of Toxic Gas, as the two gases will compete for tile occupation: if the two gases reach the same tile, the less dense gas (smaller quantity) simply disappears (in case of strict equality, the Toxic gas disappears). However, in case of concurrent occupation of a same tile, the damage from Toxic gas are applied before the less dense gas disappears.
  • The only time it's relatively 'safe' to be Paralyzed is when the Hero is already Starving. (The debuff 'ends sooner' when starving, and 'lasts longer' when satiated.)
