Ekhidna Decoction is a Decoction in The Witcher 3: Wild HuntDecoctions are special mixtures that Geralt can imbibe to gain various buffs with more substantial effects compared to Potions, placing a greater emphasis on synergy with the player's build and playstyle. These effects have a much longer duration, but they also incur Decoction Toxicity which, unlike Potion Toxicity, does not dissipate over time and remains active for the duration of the Decoction, essentially holding a sizeable chunk of your Toxicity bar and limiting your ability to imbibe other concoctions. Decoctions can be used at any time from the Inventory. By default, they have only 1 charge each but can be replenished by Meditating for at least one hour while possessing one or more units of Alcohol.


Ekhidna Decoction Attributes in The Witcher 3

The Ekhidna Decoction has the following properties:

Performing actions that consume Stamina regenerates Vitality.

This Decoction's effect triggers when using Signs, Sprinting as well as using special attacks such as Whirl and Rend. It can also trigger when using the Archgriffin Decoction and consuming Stamina to empower your Strong Attacks.

Ekhidna Decoction's effects have a base duration of 1,800, but this can be improved with every single point invested in any Skills in the Alchemy Skill line. The Adaptation skill also specifically improves the duration of all Decoctions up to a maximum of 50%. However, this is generally not a worthwhile skill to invest in as you get more than enough of a duration boost just by investing in any Alchemy skills.

      I don't know if this decoction is broken or not. It lasts 30mins and can be refilled by meditating. When i have the buff on, whenever i use the light attack special move (hold attack button) my vitality rockets straight back to full in an instant even from almost 0. It also recovers around 1000 vitality when casting signs. Outside of combat it can be used to recover hp to full by jumping a couple of times. This thing feels way overpowered compared to other decoctions.
