There are a couple items you can use to tip the odds in your favor when the chips are down and the going is tough. They are known as Power-Ups.
From Oct 20th, 2009 onward, all new powerups are unsoulbound as long as no charges have been used.
Available Power-ups Edit
Superchargers are sold in 40-packs (regular) and 100-packs (Deluxe). Using a Supercharger immediately replenishes your Health and Stamina by 25%. The amount of health healed is dependant on your max health.
Only one Supercharger charge may be used per each 15 second time period.
Use a charge of Cure to instantly remove all crowd control effects of debuffs from your character. Cure also gives you a 30-second massive boost to your Debuff Resistance and Willpower so it's not as likely you will be crowd-controlled or debuffed right away after using one. Currently there is a bug that if someone near you is afflicted by an AoE status ailment then you will be too, so it is possible to be hit again when you should be immune.
Ghi Amps Edit
Ghi Amps are sold in either 10-packs (regular) or 25-packs (Deluxe). Using a Ghi Amp increases the base effect of your equipped attack and healing rings by 50%. A Ghi Amp's effect lasts for twenty minutes.
You won't be able to use another Ghi Amp charge until the first one's effect has expired completely.
Double Orbs Edit
Double Orbs are sold in either 10-packs (regular) or 25-packs (Deluxe). Using Double Orb doubles the amount of orbs received from any monster loot drop. A Double Orb's effect lasts for 20 minutes. Only doubles Charge Orbs, not Shadow Orbs.
You won't be able to use another Double Orb charge until the first one's effect has expired completely.
Revives are sold in 25-packs (Regular). Using a Revive immediately Awakens you with about a third of your Health and Stamina. You can use further charges after you Awaken to quickly unlock ring slots also. Two ring slots per charge of Awaken are freed up. This function of Revive works even if you are Defibrillated or Awaken in the Null Chamber A revive generates a small amount of aggro for the user.. .
Previous Power-Ups Edit
Previously, the Superchargers were named Supercharger Battery, and Supercharger Generator. While the Supercharger Battery came in 10-packs just like the Supercharger (regular), the Supercharger Generator used to be sold in 100-packs.
They had the same effect as the new Superchargers.
Ghi Boosts Edit
Previously, the Ghi Boosts were known as Ring Polishers. They are sold in either 10-packs (Ring Polisher Tube) or 100-packs (Ring Polisher Canister) and last for 3 minutes.
Using a Ghi Boost had the same effect as Ghi Amps.
