Inv potion 071000
  • Pygmy Oil
  • Use: Drink it.
  • 1 Charge
  • Crafting Reagent
  • Sell Price: 2s 50c

Pygmy Oil is crafted with Alchemy (375); taught by Alchemy trainers in Northrend.

Materials required:
Inv misc fish 55 1x [Pygmy Suckerfish]

Processing 1 Inv misc fish 55 [Pygmy Suckerfish] creates 1-2 Pygmy Oil.

This item can also be found inside the Inv misc bag 07 blue [Bag of Fishing Treasures] rewarded from completing Marcia Chase's daily fishing quests in Dalaran. The bag may contain 3 to 5 of them.

Drinking Pygmy Oil will give you a 10 min. buff and reduce your character's size. This effect is stackable and further applications continue to shrink your character. 8-10 stacks will turn you into a "pygmy", actually a gnome with a voodoo mask.

Each stack reduces your character's size by 3%.

  • 1 Stack = 3%
  • 2 Stacks = 6%
  • 3 Stacks = 9%
  • 4 Stacks = 12%
  • 5 Stacks = 15%
  • 6 Stacks = 18%
  • 7 Stacks = 21%
  • 8 Stacks = 24% ("Pygmified")
  • 9 Stacks = 27% ("Pygmified")
  • 10 Stacks = "Pygmified"

Trivia[]

  • Pygmy oil results in the smallest size decrease available to players. Whereas most other items reduce size by ~20%+. Making pygmy oil a good item for reducing character size in roleplay. However, with a short duration, it is made less appealing.
  • The item was made prior to pygmies being actually introduced to the game, thus it makes the player appears as a gnome with a Inv banner 01 [Big Voodoo Mask].
