Polymorphine

From Noita Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Polymorphine is a pink, extremely dangerous magical liquid. It causes any creatures it touches to be stained with Effect polymorph.png Polymorph, turning them into helpless Sheep.

Characteristics

Polymorphine requires very little substance to take effect, only a few pixels are enough to incur a Effect polymorph.png Polymorph stain.

There are three possible variants of Sheep that a creature will turn into, chosen randomly.

Sheep of any type have very little health, and no resistances to any kind of damage, meaning they will usually die when taking any damage.

Enemies can also be Polymorphed, but a few are immune, either by immunity to polymorph or by immunity to stains.

Polymorphine can be mixed with Toxic Sludge to create Chaotic Polymorphine. It also has a reaction with Silver, turning it into Copper and evaporating itself.

Immunity

Acquiring full immunity is possible, but difficult. The only method to be fully (but still temporarily) immune to the effects of Polymorphine is to eat the dead body of a Master of Polymorphing.

The Iron Stomach perk can be used to temporarily gain immunity to a particular kind of liquid Polymorphine by drinking it. This only works for the matching kind.

The danger posed by the substance can also be mitigated by shifting it into a less dangerous material, or by actively deleting it from your vicinity while exploring the world.

Example 1:

Adding one of these spell sequences to your teleport wand will accumulate a liquid-deleting field around you, greatly reducing your chances of becoming a sheep.

Notes

  • Transformed players do not trigger the Holy Mountain to collapse when leaving or re-entering, meaning that Polymorphine is a handy potion to find early game for preserving wand-editing abilities. The same trick can be used with the other types of Polymorphine.
  • SPOILER: Kolmisilmä has a material vulnerability to Polymorphine at 12 orbs.

Trivia

Before Patch #8, polymorphing into a creature allowed you to fly infinitely due to the new shape not having a levitation limit. This has since been changed.
