How to get Tincture of Queensfoil?

Tincture of Queensfoil is a relatively common item, at least in the Dreaming City. Once you’ve unlocked the area, you’ll be able to get it from public events, region chests, ascendant chests and many other sources. It’s really not that hard to obtain – just stay in the city and keep doing guardian stuff.

What to do with Tincture of Queensfoil?

You drink it. No, really. It looks nasty, and the description says it’s “viscous”, so it almost certainly doesn’t taste nice, but you are still supposed to drink it. When you do, it will “open your mind to the secrets of the Dreaming city”. In practical terms, this means you’ll get a buff called Ascendant, which lasts 30 minutes. It will allow you to see otherwise invisible platforms.

Jumping on these and following the precarious path that reveals itself as you go will lead you to ascendant chests. They’re nothing special – you’ll get some Dark Fragments, a bottle of your new favorite drink and a blue item. Still, if you’re farming weekly bounties from Petra, you’re going to appreciate the additional fragments.

Some players say it also allows you to see and use mysterious portals that transport you across the map, but we haven’t been able to find any of those, so take that with a grain of salt. Or three. Anyway, since you can only stack five Tinctures in your backpack, don’t be affraid to chug a bottle from time to time.

    If you go to the Garden and you drink the Tincture of Queensfoil, there should be a portal that appears as you venture farther into that location. It might already be there before you take it but I’ve never seen it there before. And it takes you to a temple but i haven’t found anything in it so far.
