      I wish there was poison paper and it builds the stacking effect as you hit (like blood starved beast)

        Icons next to the quick item square. So far I know: <br/>X-ray of a ribcage icon: Up arrow means you have health regen while down arrow means your health is draining. <br/>Right (?) Fist orange/brown icon: Up arrow means that damage is increased. Never seen a down arrow. <br/> <br/>Unkowns: <br/>Red icon, seems to have a circle on its bottom left. A grenade?

          Shouldn't the Old Hunter Bone be on this list? It seems to count as a personal buff, similar to the Lead Elixir, but making you faster instead of tougher. Also the Blue Elixir and the Beast Blood Pellet.
