Corrosive Breath

Breathes corrosive gas in a cone.

Cone length: (level based) tiles
Cone angle: (level based) degrees
Cooldown: 15 rounds

Corrosive Breath is a mutation which fires corrosive gas into a large cone-shaped area. This mutation is the signature ability of tartbeards. The corrosive gas has a gas density of 80. Additionally, this mutation grants +2 acid resistance per mutation level.[1]

This mutation can also be acquired temporarily by cooking with acid, tartbeard gland paste, or concentrated tartbeard gland paste.

Passively, a creature with this mutation gains a bonus to acid resistance. However, their gear can still be affected.

When cooking with tartbeard glands, one can expect the following guaranteed results:

Ingredients cooked with Effect Cone Characteristics
tartbeard gland paste Level 5 Corrosive Breath, 10 acid resistance 30° cone, 9 tiles long
concentrated tartbeard gland paste Level 10 Corrosive Breath, 20 acid resistance 40° cone, 14 tiles long
tartbeard gland paste + concentrated tartbeard gland paste Level 15 Corrosive Breath, 30 acid resistance 50° cone, 19 tiles long

The following formulas are used to determine breath cone characteristics based on mutation level.[2][3]

Breath Cone Length
4 + Level
Breath Cone Angle
Level × 2 + 20°

Ability Cooldown

Corrosive Breath's cooldown (CD) in rounds depends on the user's willpower (WI) attribute:
