Aroma potions bugged and/or inconsistent



  • @wiwade low tier = 1-5 high tier = 6-10



  • @antony-hollinsworth If it's "no matter the tier", then Aroma Potion just attracts every monster for me:P Thanks again!



  • @wiwade potions don't pull champs of any level. So If you only have access to first 5 tiers of monster an alure potion will do nothing. I made this mistake early in my playing lol



  • @antony-hollinsworth I am between 20 and 25 so both potions currently pull monsters for me, which is nice!



  • I have not had any experience with the lure potions not working recent, they seem to still pull slower than at start of open beta, but faster than they did after the initial map update.

    My experience has been that it can take up to 2 minutes after starting a battle with a lured monster to get the next pull to start, though sometimes with Tier X monsters that take about 1 minute to kill I exit battle and there is already a monster pulled to me. Otherwise with the lower tier monsters than die in under 30 seconds, I find the quickest way to get the next pull activated is to restart the app. On average I can get around 10-12 pulls with a 20 minute lure potion, which is pretty reasonable, but definitely less than pre-map update lures.



  • @rollingcode I am pretty sure I was just depleting the area of monsters with my merciless killing spree. Though I think there might be a bug with it stalling out when it tries to skip a Champ as Antony stated. Because I do remember seeing some a mix of champs and non-champs nearby when the potion seemed to stop attracting existing mobs.



  • @Maguss Just another quick update on this.

    Right now I have an Aroma potion going and for the last 10 minutes it has not attracted any of the Tier 3, 4, and 5 mobs I can see nearby. They are not champions though there are other champions roaming nearby.

    The mobs I can see are Mandrake, Onikuma, Tree Spirit, and a Wraith. Again, they're all normal mobs though there are some champions nearby too (and I understand those are not attracted by potions).

    @peter-larkin Thanks for that. Looking into it.



  • Also got the same problem... I had a circle booster active and activated the low tier aroma potion at home. There were a couple of monsters close to the interaction circle and they were never attracted to me. So I guess the potion is also useless when using the circle booster lol
    Actually, for me, the aroma potion is always useless. It sould create new monsters, at least 1 each 5 minutes. Why not copying Pokemon GO? It's already a ripoff, so just do it right.



  • Best workaround I have found is to restart the game after a battle to trigger the lure potion to grab a new monster and bring them in. But this is a bug and I hope devs can restore the original functionality of the lure potions so they consistently pull in new monsters at a reasonable rate.
