Can the same potion be used twice for the purposes of obtaining skill tokens?

Example: If I get a skill token for having 5 different kinds of potions, and I later get 2 more of one of those kinds, does that get me another skill token since I now have 3 of that kind, or do I need to get 3 more of that kind (4 total) because I already scored off of the first one?

the rules doesn't expressly forbid what you're asking but Rodney Smith's video claims that's illegal.

When you read the rules, it says if you have 5 unique potions and/or 3 of the same kind, you get a +4.

I think if you get all 5, then get 2 more of one type, you get another token.

That's right. The very same potion fulfills both conditions for a tris and a set of five different potions.

I apologize if I'm hijacking the thread, but I have a question related to this topic.

If I have five unique potions, I get a skill point. Do I get another skill point if I create another five unique potions?

Nope. You just get that award once.

But you can get the award for multiple sets of three though, correct?

Yes, just one for each tris of potions of a kind.

So, at maximum 6 skill tokens for sets of three identical potions (plus 1 if you get 5 different potions).

Assuming the 6 potions used are numbered 1,2,3,4,5,6.

you can make these sets.

1,1,1
2,2,2
3,3,3
4,4,4
5,5,5
6,6,6

1,2,3,4,5
2,3,4,5,6

While there are more combos. Based on a correction video by watch it played where you are allowed use a potion from set of three to make the set of 5.

So a total is 8 skill tokens possible.

Hello!

As already stated in this very thread: you only get the "Make at least 5 different potions" award just once.

So, in theory the maximum amount of skill tokens a player can get is 7.

6 for sets of three identical potions and 1 for having at least 5 different potions.
