Blind doesn't protect against Breakga, the AoE Petrify that I so love to see as the RDM kiter in our UO set, Breakga is just a spell so it makes no difference with or without eye contact.

Yes, if you are blind, you will NOT be affected by gaze attacks. Unless you get the PCC, using them isn't really cost efficient though. :\

Gaze attacks

Does this negate Gaze attacks? Silence potion negates curse, Poison potion negates sleep, Is it logical to assume you can't be affacted by gaze attacks while blinded?

I was at work today thinking of how my RDM got pwnt because of petrification the other day and I thought the same thing. I would like someone to answer this question.. Theoreticlly.. since you don't get pet while not facing the mob I think that blind would have the same effect.

How Bad is Acc after taking this?
# Feb 21 2005 at 10:29 AM Rating: Decent
Big question I have is how much does the blind potion lower your acc? As a lvl 56war/nin, tanking isn't all that fun right now due to the war low evasion, so at 57 i'm hoping this along with two bat earrings will make all better. I'm just worried about still being able to hit an IT crab in Boy. Tree while blinded. Can anyone help me out with this info? Thanks

to add to the other guy these would give you the eva+ u desire, BUT at a steep price. these seem to be twice as strong as the spell blind but not as strong as flash. so your acc would be hurt badly so your hate gain/control would also be hurt even with sushi.

How about this for info:
War dont rely on evasion to tank. Thats why you get all that shiny armor and high Vit. You should have a backup tank anyway or just take the hits after your shadows are down. You won't go down like a Ninja ;)
And ***** +eva stuff, go with +def/vit or offensive stats.

use this with 2 bat earrings and +30 evasion roxx for ninja tanks!!

Is this a good idea to craft at 20?

I can confirm hard cap of 28 for the nebimonite synth. I gained 3 in a row to hit 28, then nothing after another 21 synths.

Cap error
# Sep 02 2004 at 6:25 PM Rating: Decent
The lightning+Nebis+mecury caps HIGHER than 27. I just hit 27 and I'm still getting skillups off this combination. o.o Boy was I surprised (and happy!) to keep getting skillups. I didn't get any after 28 though, but I only synthed like 3 times... May or may not cap at 28, but it doesn't cap at 27!

I tried synthing Nebi/Merc Blinding Potions at skill 21 and had a very high failure rate, like that you would find if you were 8-10 skill below cap.

So yes, I agree, it is likely cap 28-30.
length of usage

how long does this ting last? 30 min? 60 min? till user dies? enlighten me.

Also, these status potions are used to enhance weapons with that status ailment. So you can use a weapon that causes blindness, poison, silence. etc.

There are some items, that when blinded, grant you a special effect. In this case, Bat Earrings grant you +15 Evasion while blinded. These potions would, therefore, allow you to activate this effect at your own discretion.

Crafting this at 27 alchemy didn't yeild a single skillgain after a dozen synths. I beleive the skill for it is actually 21 and not 26

The numbers listed here are skill CAPS not skill needed. 27 is not the skill you need but rather the number you stop gaining skill.
