Effect

The amount of MP gained seems to depend on the sauce spell cast. When casting lower level spells I seem to get back a fraction of the mana spent, but when casting Saucegeyser I always seem to get back the full 40 MP it cost to cast it. Between this and the new effect of Jabañero Saucesphere you can actually make an MP profit by casting Saucegeyser. --Jacobm 14:05, 26 June 2007 (CDT)


How often does this effect trigger? I have been using the spell for 1-2 days now and have still nto seen the effect at all. Is that somethign that is consistent with other peoples experiences?--Winterbay 19:49, 2 July 2007 (CDT)

You need to buff Myst and +Spell Damage so that you would exceed the maximum damage of the spell. It works everytime for me when casting Wave of Sauce with: Capsaicin Codex, enchanted toothpick, oversized pizza cutter, myst=134 (SD+10 +12 +13, always hot). It's pure magic! With Jalapeno and Jabanero Saucespehre, I can cast two Wave of Sauce for <10MP and heal ca. 55HP/adv. In some places I need to raise monster level so they survive the first spell --Amlethus 15:14, 9 July 2007 (CDT)

Isn't the 40 MP cap part of the effect? I think it should be mentioned in the formula. Behaves pretty nice, however, with double Sauce Wave or Sauce Wave + Saucegeyser (Saucespheres on). Could it be the new Stasis? ;) Rasal 07:05, 27 July 2007 (CDT)

References

Thermal decomposition of metal carbonates? Not sure what that's supposed to be referring to; links go to a page about thermal decomp that only passingly mentions any metal carbonate decomposition (calcium carbonate, aka chalk) and a non-existent page. Plus, metal carbonates tend to be extremely thermally stable; chalk (calcium), or baking soda (sodium), or siderite (iron), for example. A much simpler and more likely explanation IMO is that this refers to thermite, which involves the oxidation of a metal (and accompanying reduction of its oxide), or possibly just generically to the oxidation reaction of a neutral metal (hydrolysis of an alkaline metal, for example; you know what happens when you put sodium or calcium or cesium metals in water, right?), most of which tend to be exothermic (aka hot).--Australopithecus 06:12, 4 November 2009 (UTC)

Actually, the description doesn't even mention metals, does it? So really, just about any spontaneous oxidation reaction would do. Like, oh, say . . . heat-catalyzed runaway oxidation of elemental carbon? I think it probably just means burning stuff . . . --Australopithecus 06:17, 4 November 2009 (UTC)
