I found some neat toadstools at the end of the Great Walls in A3... I don't know if this is a mistake, or if something actually happens when you make a potion with them, but... Here's a picture.

Don't know how long that'll stay up. But anyway. QFT, mate?

I'm pretty sure you can augment any item, even junk items, so I'm not terribly surprised. I didn't remember finding augmented stuff lying around, though.

Probably because it's an inanimate object. Anyways, I've never seen a rope say + zero nature lore.

Red Herrings.

But yeah, a rope like that exists. Don't remember where I encountered one, though.

The rope and the toadstools both probably function just fine if you equip them, which you can't. It's not clear if they're strange mistakes or oversights or odd game design humor, but they're around.

—Alorael, who wishes there were more swords with bonuses to polearms and spears with melee bonuses. In A5 it makes sense because of battle disciplines, and in Exile it make would make sense because of ambidexterity (not that those bonuses exist). In A1-4? Priceless.

i found those toadstools used them in a potion, it became potion(+), and the character that drank it gained two strength. dunno if it was a glitch or if Jeff stuck them in there for that reason

Really? Cool. Maybe this works in BoA as well?

Oh wow... I wonder what happens if you agument a pile of herbs and make potions with them.... Maybe it does the same thing? Someone should test this.
