      i know its a bit late but if you want a ton of elixirs just make offerings of decent weapons which you can craft and you get a bunch of amrita and elixirs

        I like blood vials in bloodborne cause I can just pay for it or just farm the first area. I like estus in souls cause the increase is permanent. I really disliked Elixir cause no good way to farm it as of now (12 hours in) and only 3 per new region. It does give more challenge as I need to really learn enemy behaviour and take risk whether to attack or back out. Ir growing on my and my opinion probably changes to a good healing system but not loving having to search kodama everywhere.

          Anyone think that elixirs are actually Kodama poop? They look like poop in the image, and are made of nuts and plants, which I'm assuming is their diet.

            Does anybody know if these become available to buy? Ive gone through 60 on a later game boss that is kicking my ass.
