The Tavernkeep

Ale is a potion that gives the player the Tipsy debuff, which increases melee damage, but lowers the player's defense, for 2 minutes. It can be crafted at a Keg. On the Desktop version Desktop version, it can also be purchased from the Tavernkeep NPC for 1 Silver Coin each.

Desktop Version The Ale Tosser uses Ale as ammunition.

The Tipsy debuff inflicted by Ale causes the following effects:

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Ale sells for 20 Copper Coin and only requires Mugs, which in turn only require 1 Glass, which is crafted from only 2 Sand each. Each unit of 2 Sand is therefore worth 20 Copper Coin if used to craft Ale. Crafting Ale can ultimately be the most profitable means of selling off Sand without incorporating other ingredients.
  • Since the ale provides a debuff, using the Nurse will charge players more for getting healed and will remove the debuff as well.
  • Drinking ale then using the nurse is an effective way to get the "The Frequent Flyer" achievement.
  • Consuming items that give the Well Fed buff completely negate the -4 defense penalty that the ale gives.
