No more effective way to feel better than with a new battledome item!

I think this must be a record for new battledome items within an advent calendar; but this year we have yet one more!


While this one claims to be another single use item, it'll be interesting to see if they got it to work. Will this hearty soup hit the spot? Get to the Advent Calendar today to pick one up.

Be sure to check out our guide to see what has came out so far. We don't have much left at this point, who knows what the final day will hold.

This item is also not, in fact, currently one-use.
In fact, since it's not one-use, it currently outclasses Bag of Healing Dust. Not bad at all.

It'll feel pretty mean if TNT nerfs these items post-release, but I guess it could be *possible* that they do, as much as I don't expect them to. This soup is extremely strong.

Not sure why it blocks all Air (I guess it's meant to symbolize cold?) but jeez if this remains a "once per battle" then this is gonna stir up Healer suggestions for those upgrading to a 50% healer.

That said, it does say it's meant to be one use, which if true I feel then the effect is too weak. I would rather a Jade Elixir which full heals over a 50% heal + Full Air Block. Maybe if it was a combination 50% Block all Icons + 50% Heal (that way it doesn't overshadow Jade Elixir or Thick Smoke Bomb), and remove the Limit One Healer to compensate. Though it would once again be another good one-use BD weapon with very limited distribution which I don't like unless they plan on finally giving us a way to get more of those items.

Though if it does become "once per battle", I would like a change to be done. No, not to it, I think it's fine as is. Rather, instead of a nerf, I would like them to give a boon to Bag of Healing Dust. I say give it All Dark Block. That way it gives an option: do you want Air Defence or Dark Defense with your 50% healing? Sets up a small template for some other future healers too.

BTW, for the curious, I wrote a Neopian Times articles a few years ago about a few notable prize/gift items at the time I felt deserving being re-released in some ways (also giving some suggestions). Not all are BD items nor are they all one-use, but some are. Maybe I should consider writing a sequel to it:

I hope they don't change it to be one use, but I could see them nerfing the Air blocking down to 50%.

They confirmed in the editorial this week that it's meant to be once per battle. Poor Bag of Healing Dust...
