Do you use wraps?

Okay I’m not looking for a salt mine here but just trying to gather info on how people do or do not use wraps. I personally do not use wraps at all because they are slow and making potions is pretty much just as easy. Am I alone in this? Is there a reason I’m not aware of that I should be carrying wraps more? I get that they stop bleed but I just don’t find myself ever in a situation where I’m bleeding to death and have the time available to apply a bandage (usually I’m being stabbed repeatedly).

So, do others find utility in wraps and I’m an outlier? Please convince me I’m doing it wrong.

I rarely used wraps (although have many stacks made). I seldom use potions, usually only with boss fights or a surge/purge. I hate wasting them on weaker mobs. I depend on food to keep me alive most times.

I am probably not the best person to ask regarding this question. :slight_smile: But I thought to post an answer for you to get it started.

No, I only use potions.

I too only use potions during battles (if I’m desperate) and food in between fights. Potions are just as easy to make, quicker to use and I (like you) never find myself in a position that I am bleeding out.

I use every healing option depending on circumstances
pork for exploration/easy combat healing
potions for general combat healing
wraps either in-between fights or sometimes during fights when I’m not alone and clanmate takes pressure off me for a moment or I need to stop excessive bleeding, at least I used to now bleeds are a joke so it would be wasted effort

You are doing nothing wrong, it is called playstyle and in this term I cannot see rights and wrongs. I use wraps, a lot in the beginning and less on end game. Same as potions, a lot in the beginning and less in the end game too. What I still use to heal most of the times is food. To be more specific, I use pork feast. The devs made a wonderful decision in Siptah to allow you to gain very easily specialist cooking X. You can learn very fast this cooking recipe and heal your self without the use of potions all the time.
I don’t fix bandages, I go and farm the skeleton boss to gain infused for 2 reasons. First the speed of reaction and second the speed of healing. About the reaction speed, maybe, it is something that is inaccurate, but I sense that my player uses faster these wraps than the others.
Yet I only use them after the end of combat, never in combat, in combat I use potions if necessary, if I know that I can endure the hits and finish without healing, I don’t stop my fight to heal. If my hp is less than 50% I eat a feast and use an infused wrap, never potions in calm time. I find aloe farming annoying so I try to use the less potions possible.
Still, this is my playstyle, I don’t think I do something better or worst than anyone :man_shrugging:.

I do occasionally use wraps, but I do not normally craft them. Healing Wraps can be found in loot in some higher difficulty areas, and I tend to keep them on me just in case and then dump them into a chest when I get home.

If I plan to go somewhere with a lot of heavy fighting, like clearing the Mounds, I take a stack of them with me and will use them between fights if I need some healing.

Occasionally, if I am much lower on health after a fight than I had planned for, I might craft some rough warps because the ingredients are so easy to find and are much cheaper than wasting a potion.

I do craft potions and will only use them in emergencies. If I have to drink more than one potion in the same day, I feel that I am playing poorly.

@Tephra , Well said, yet sometimes the performance of the console is already making your fights poor, so one potion might not be enough :wink:. In Grey pools most of the avatars spawns invisible for a period of time and no matter how easy a fight can be with the correct use of weapons, you don’t know what to do than run around until it desires to appear your opponent. Especially in the migo figurine I find great trouble, all the times I get powerful hits from invisible mobs. But when the game performs correctly, all you said is true, except the red mama, se is still goofy fight.

I use them outside of combat when I don’t have a base to craft anything better.

Like stelagel said, you’re not doing anything wrong. It’s how you enjoy playing.

I use wraps at very low level, in-between fights from looted resources if needed, and when I’m in a harvest build; make them on the go. It’s simple healing while gathering the basics if you’re fighting the normal mobs. If you have a thrall, you can send them in to deal with creatures.

Side note: I don’t make any of the higher tier wraps. It feels like too much of a waste of resources since their use is such a pain in the first place.

I hope this doesn’t seem super, super, super nerdy, but whenever I use them it’s in punctuation of a great battle. The animation looks cool, and how I’d expect I’d fix myself up after combat. (Except I’d use Super Glue irl.)

Fluff bandaging. That I understand.

Not so they have some advantages you know




Weight is one of them, especially the infused wraps weights just 1 instead of potions that is 5.8, that means that with the wraps I can heal 58 times instead of 10 that I can with potions, if you have farming missions infused wraps are more handy than potions :wink:. Still, your gaming your rules.

I use wraps pretty much all the time. They are way way lighter than potions and seem to fix more damage per wrap. Plus when making them you get 3 for each craft.

They can also be used to help a thrall recover after a big fight. Food can heal them and you, but I don’t like to wait around, I’d rather use a wrap and immediately go to the next fight

Please tell me where I obtain infused wraps in Exiled Lands. I’m not sure whether I wiped with Yellow Lotus or what, but I have all other Lemurian recipes, just not this one.

I’m not sure they exist in the Exiled Lands. Though they seem like they belong to the Sunken City, they were not added to the game until the Isle of Siptah update.

King’s niche, harvest the skeleton boss there for infused wrap.

Thanks m8, @Barnes, @BrutusWhitefang gave you the answer. Also you’ll get e mote, lots of gold and legendary weapon. Don’t forget to use pick with oil.

For me, I tend to carry some wraps in my inventory for some cheaper out of combat healing, if I’m expecting to get in combat again soon (otherwise it’s usually just food). I prefer to only carry a few potions (especially early on), so I try to keep them for the actual emergencies. For me it mostly comes down to weight as the deciding factor… That said, the wraps tend to get dumped in the late game (unless I get round to getting some of the infused wraps (I thought they were silken wraps - or did that change wit the healing system changes?) - the added speed on the heal is a nice bonus) - once I’ve got my vit up to 30 and better food options, I tend to stop being so concerned about out of combat healing and maybe start adding one or two extra potions instead, since I tend to be doing more dangerous stuff (and being less careful :wink: ). But, in the end, that’s just my choice - doesn’t mean it’s the best way (or even necessarily a good way) - it’s all about what works for you.
