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, it can also be purchased from the Tavernkeep NPC for 1 each.
The Ale Tosser uses Ale as ammunition.
The Tipsy debuff inflicted by Ale causes the following effects:
- Ale sells for 20 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 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.
