Ratings - Mud Mixture
At a Glance (0/3):
Toss this at your opponent, and watch as the mud explosion damages your opponent for 5.2 earth icons, and heals you for ~2.5 hp!

In-Depth (0/4):
Weak bomb and weak healing. If you really want to go the healing bomb route, grab an Ultranova. Sure, they're single-use, but they're dirt cheap now that the new battledome hands them out like candy. Yum!

Price (0/2):
~9 nps or so is pretty cheap, but it's still not worth a spot in your set.

Bonus (1/1):
I remember using this as a beginner battler, perfectly content with the minuscule healing for my 10 hp or so pet. It might've been *slightly* more viable at that level back then, but those days are long long gone.

Final Score: 1/10

Overview: Illusen wants to make sure you're not appreciated for your hard work, so she gives you this dirt in a fancy jar.

The Good: Well, if you're questing for a Honey Potion or Illusens Staff, you'll get one of these one the way every time.

The Bad: The Mud Mixture is really too weak to be taken seriously. Weapons like the new-but-weak Flaming Toaster can beat this easily, and the toaster doesn't even have a good rating. Then consider that the Scroll of Ultranova costs next to nothing and is recommended by just about everyone for beginners. The healing is a nice bonus, but if you want consistency and better healing, the Fighting Folder would be a better choice.

The Ugly Truth: It might be free, but it's just not worth equipping. Sorry questers!

Price/Power (0/5)
This healing item is by no way powerful enough to use in everyday combat. It isn't alone in this either, there are many that are this horrible. With that in mind I am going to try and write a single review for all of them-

Countermeasures (0/5)
This level of hp is not enough to be worth using, just give it a miss.

Alternatives Upgrades or Downgrades
In battle, the Greater Healing Scroll, out of battle the Essence of Everlasting Apple, Super Strength Healing Potion or Bubbling Healing Goo are all worth looking into.

Other Points

Final Thoughts
This is just one item in a series of horrible ones. Even with the added attack, this item is still not providing enough healing to make it worth using.
