    Maybe someone can explain this: my sims grandson resurrected his grandfather. Then he gave his grandfather the potion of immortality. This potion turned the grandfather into a ghost. Then the grandson gave his grandfather the potion of resurrection. Nothing happened. However, when the grandfather drank a glass of water . . . poof! Back to being "human" again. Say what??????

    Drinking a potion might lead to failure.
    Once failed, the potion of immortality turns the Sim into a ghost temporarily; that Sim is not “dead” so they cannot resurrect.
    Plus the potion of resurrection does not make a dead Sim resurrect, it just prevents your Sim from dying for 24 hours.

    when i play someone that has took the potion of immortality i always turn off aging for them, then turn it back on for other familys for households only,

    So two of my sims that had drank immortality potions dropped dead of old age a couple days later, while they were still Young Adults. I wasn't playing either at the time it happened and only realized when their ghost texted the family I was playing. Neither had been cursed or anything. I'm going to try giving this potion to someone and play them exclusively to see if I can witness it happening and maybe gather more info. So just a warning. I do have some mods installed so going through those for compatibility will be one of my processes though all are up to date.

    Yikes! Thanks for the heads up. I just had my spellcastor brew some for her and her new husband, I think I’ll just use MCCC to make them immortal and “pretend” for now.

    Do you see the issue with these pictures? Not only was he flagged for disable death and disable aging, (which I did after my first two sims with the immortal trait from the potion died), but it clearly shows he has the immortality buff from the potion. And that he died from OLD AGE. Umm.

    That certainly seems like a bug, have you tweeted the Guru's or posted this on Answers HQ?

    I read through this thread and got hopelessly confused. So what exactly do the potions of immortality and rejuvenation do? As I understand it:

    Immortality: Prevents a Sim from dying of old age. Question: Is it one time or do you need to continue to take the potion and if so how often?

    Rejuvenation: Prevents a Sim from ageing up. Questions: Is it a one time thing and you never have to take the potion again or does it reset the Sims age so he has to periodically take the potion again?

    @Bronwin2 My understanding is that Immortality lasts forever i.e. once used your sim will age up to elder but will never die from old age, while Rejuvenation resets a sim's age to the beginning of their current age group but the sim will continue to age and so you will need to use the potion again to prevent them ageing up (like the Potion of Youth).

    Thanks. A nice clear explanation.

    Ther.s no age freezing potion on potion list. I tried the potion of immortality on my sim. Next day, he was still aging up as i remember. So I think it can be prevented from dying by old age. Save ur game as other name, then make a cake, add the birthday candles, and see who can be aging up. It will give the answer. If it was age feezing potion, the sim wont be on the list.

    This potion has one more property. If a ghost drinks it, it will be resurrected. And will have a trait, also.
  • Bronwin2Bronwin2 Posts: 2,007 Member
    Ok. One of my sims drank a potion of immortality and turned into a ghost. Now she won't turn back. Is there anyway to return her to normal?

    I had this bug. Moodlet somehow went away but her ghost state - not. Just give your sim another potion and it will be fine (if it doesn't fail again, that is).
  • Bronwin2Bronwin2 Posts: 2,007 Member
    Ok. Thanks. I did that and it worked.
  • Faust-RSIFaust-RSI Posts: 175 Member
    The most hilarious part about this joke of a potion is that one of my sim that drank it and supposedly shouldn't die of old age - died of old age.
  • DeafSimmerDeafSimmer Posts: 2,781 Member
    It's similar to the potion of youth from the rewards store. Another case of EAxis recycling features.
  • Faust-RSIFaust-RSI Posts: 175 Member
    ^Wrong. Similar (actually - absolutely the same) is the Potion of Rejuvenation. And GTW also has the same Serum.
    Potion of Immortality is different. But it's not working :D

    Yeah... I have a few elders that I want to walk in my saves forever. Would be nice to give them the potion and just see them playing chess in the park and so forth. Keeping my fingers crossed that the potion will work in my game.

    Did they test ANYTHING with this pack?! My sim drank this, turned elder, expected. Died of old age. *swearing* He even had the trait, I checked, so the potion "worked"... except that it didn't.

    So I can't sell my potions... the ancient bloodline doesn't work so there's no point to generations I guess... and now the guy I wanted to keep around goes and dies. Well 🎃🎃🎃🎃. :'(

    This is the first and now the last time I ever buy a pack of any kind at full price.

    Oh and to keep my rant on topic... I guess the answer to the question is that it does nothing.

    @Faust-RSI, do you mean that giving your ghost sim another immortality potion to drink will restore them to their normal 'alive' state? I am having the same problem as @Bronwin2 - the potion backfired and my sim is still a ghost after more than a week. I am at my wits' end.

    @FKM100 If having your Sim drink another potion of immortality doesn't work, there's a spell that might do the trick. It's called 'Dedeathify.' The description simply says, "Restore a ghost to their original physical form." It doesn't say they have to actually be dead, just a ghost. However, the name of the spell does imply it's intended for the ghost of a dead Sim so it might not work. I guess it's worth a try anyway though. *shrugs*

    If you're having issues with your potions of immortality not preventing Sims from dying of old age, please press 'Me Too' on this thread here: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/NEEDS-SAVES-ROM-Sims-dying-of-old-age-despite-immortality-potion/m-p/8227835#M105740

    and also provide saves for them to test to help them resolve the bug!

    As for my opinion on how immortality works in RoM, my personal lore for it requires no aging only, but can still die from everything else but old age.

    Just to report back - I made my sim drink another potion of immortality and it did restore her to her normal physical form (thank heavens!). Before that, I tried the 'Dedeathify' spell on her, but it did not do the trick.

    Just so you know it turns out this potion does not actually work.

    Noes, hope they get enough saves so that they can fix it. I really looked forward to using this potion in my saves.
