GW2 Selfless and Thoughtless potions

Images and videos showing the Selfless and Thoughtless potions you can purchase for 250 Found Heirlloom and 10 gold each with the Escape from Lion’s Arch update. Added pictures and video of the Thoughtless potion


They can be brought from the vendors at the Gendarran Fields/Lornar’s Pass/Bloodtide Coast refugee camps for 250 Found Heirlooms and 10 gold each. They are sold by two different vendors are are usually next to each other.


Found Heirloom are obtained from the following sources

  • Rubble Piles (40/day)
  • Standard Citizen’s Rescue bags you get from reaching various tiers of citizens rescued (100, 300, 600, 900) in Lion’s Arch. They give out 1 per bag. The Ultimate Citizen’s Rescue Bag you get at 1200 citizens rescued give you 5 Found Heirlooms.
  • You can also find them very rarely from the Alliance Supply Bags that drop from mobs/events in Lion’s Arch or Black Lion Chests. The drop rate is about 10 per 500 bags or even less.

Selfless Potion (Halo)

  • Act as a consumable/buff but does not take the consumable/food slot and lasts 1 hr with unlimited uses (ENDLESS)
  • No cooldown on use
  • You CAN use this with a helm. Remember, this is a consumable, not an armor piece so no clashes there.
  • Account bound
  • Cannot be used inside dungeons, fractals, sPvP Matches
  • Can be used everywhere else including WvW and Heart of the Mists, home instance, personal story

Thoughtless Potion (Horns)

  • Same as Selfless potions, unlimited consumable, not useable inside dungeons/fractals/spvp matches.

Modeled by St Jeanne D Arc of Blackgate


  • Traldera

    Are these potions endless?

    • Avster

      It says on the video. It has unlimited uses, and it lasts an hr 🙂

    • Yes

    • narg

      make it single use for 10gold : well played Anet, well played 😀

  • jonex757


  • Oh Mighty Two

    Are these just for looks or do they do something?

  • athan

    Can I use this potion in WVW?

    • athan

      ahh nvm saw it in description 🙂

    • Yes

  • Johnny Rage

    When you get someone with horns can you get them to run around a bit? I want to know if some basic animations make it look weird-er.

  • Harnak

    How are people able to get these already? If the patch was released after reset on Tuesday, then that would be 40 for wednesday, 40 for thursday, and 40 for friday (today). I understand you can get 1 badge for each tier of refugees saved, and they are rare drops from the bags, but i dont see how that would amount to 130 heirlooms

    • Play alot, swap overflows once a tier is reached, buy lots of BLC keys since the alliance supply bags do drop from them but at very low rate

    • Brownj99

      Also when you complete the entire living story you get 100 bags of alliance supplies, and the choice of 50 more when you do another one of the individual achievements. I’m pretty sure that has a big impact on it.

  • DarkChaosGames

    Wait, why wouldn’t these be usable in dungeons/fractals?

    • Ananda

      I’m with you, it’s just weird..

  • Zanshin

    Pretty expensive for what it is.

  • GrimmLord

    Does anyone know what kind of armor the halo girl has

    • Ananda

      Yes, the shoulder is from Vigil order, Hands from Vigil order too, Human Cultural 3 ( T3 ) top. Legs and feet are ascended i think..

  • Prevariti

    Hey dulfy,

    Might want to get her to model the halo again and show just how drastic of a change ambient lighting makes. Here’s an album to show what I mean, images at the end showing when it is darker/a slight glow from my zenith spire is next to it.

    • Ambient lightning does make a difference, as I have tried to demonstrate with the 2 pictures in the middle and right. I am not sure what else is there to show. The middle image appears more transparent due to darker light while the right pic appears more golden due to brighter light

      Unless there is something else I am not seeing from your screenshots

      • Prevariti

        You got it, I’m just exceptionally tired and couldn’t tell as much in your screenies as I can when I’m playing in game. I spent far too much time at work/grinding for my halo. I’m gonna go ahead and sleep now. Sorry ><

        • No worries, just wanted to make sure I didn’t miss anything 🙂

      • Prevariti

        No, you got it I’m just exceptionaly tired from farming to get the halo/going to work in the middle of it and not sleeping. It wasn’t as obvious as your screen shots as it was in game running around with it on. Part of that too is probably just how close your are to the character.

  • Carrera4life

    How does one swap overflows? Isn’t it random?

    • It is random so it depends on your luck. If say your overflow hit 100 citizens rescued, you can log out to character select and log back in. Hopefully you are in another overflow that is close to 100 so you can get 2 bags in a short amount of time.

      • Cyberke

        Alright, thnks for the reply!
        Let the heirloom farm continue

  • Cyberke

    Do you know if you can buy both potions? or are you limited to choosing 1?

    • You can buy both, just need 500 Found Heirlooms (250 each)

  • LeafarPT

    Is it just look or does it give any buff ?

  • Sina

    I’m very disappointed that they cannot be used in dungeons. Are you guys this is the case?

  • Gintamah

    Dulfy, do you know if rumble piles and potion vendors stays after this LS patch ends?

    • narg

      i dont think, LA will be rebuild, so why keep rumble piles in new city ?

  • GamerToons

    I like the idea but the floating horns look stupid. The halo is awesome, but not for evil people like me. I would have liked a bent or broken halo then some weird looking floating horns.

    • Tide

      perhaps they made them floating so they will stick out of some helmets? I am thinking they may look good with the achievement reward helm.

  • Spacemen

    Looks nice but what a joke:
    Cannot be used inside dungeons, fractals, sPvP Matches
    Can be used everywhere else including WvW and Heart of the Mists
    rlly wtf Anet way to go.

  • Yolanda M. Aquino

    this takes me back pretty sure those are modeled after the two christmas items from the original GW kind happy for the revival (even if it is in potion form)

  • Ares Zax

    I wonder why they can’t be used in dungeons, Fractals or sPvP… That really makes no sense.

    • Michael Clarke

      It makes perfect sense. The devs don’t desire that you should have in your possession an item, that would give you a limitless advantage over the denizens in the dungeons, etc. Especially, an one that didn’t have a cool-down period connected to it, at all. Theoretically, one could , otherwise, spam the nutrition effect all the way through a dungeon, fractal or etc.

      • Ares Zax

        But the Selfless/Thoughtless potions don’t DO anything other than give you a fancy headpiece. It grants no actual advantage to you in combat. Heck, it could even be counted as a disadvantage if using it prevents you from using your other Nourishment at the same time.

        • Teunus

          it does not affect any nourishment since it was stated in their notes aswell that it takes place of something seperate and doesnt use any of youre nourishment places if i remember correctly.

        • Mezmer

          It can be counted as a disadvantage in combat. Mesmer’s illusions don’t copy this effect… I think they should do something about it :/

  • Akerhage

    Whats the armour/cloth on that halo girl character?

    • Blue

      Ascended legs and shoes, Human tier 3 top, Vigil shoulders and gloves 🙂

  • Johnny Rage

    I really like the horns after seeing them now. Also, is there no way we can preview these with a chat code or something?

  • Kobi

    Does anyone know the armor combination on the model for the selfless potion? I think it looks really nice, would like to make something similar for one of my characters.

    • Blue

      The legs and shoes are ascended, top is human tier 3, gloves and shoulders are vigil 🙂

  • Now white or black feathered wings to become an angel or demon haha.

    • Finsa

      You can already have the Wings of Dwayna witch have feathered wings in similar color scheme as Halo. Suppose the devil wings are the missing ones.

      • VunDola

        Wings of Sunless

        • What i meant is that it has the size of Wings of Sunless, it doesn’t flap that much because it becomes annoying after a while and maybe it leaves feathers when you move, it would be cool.

          • Archi

            The horns look alright with mad king’s memoirs. Even though that’s a book, it does put out flames…

  • Matt Light

    wtf where can you use them then

  • virulent

    loving my new halo~ wish it were more standoutish tho..can hardly see it next to most bgs :c plus apparently my name is right where it sits :c

    • Archi

      Your halo looks so good with the wings of Dwayna!! I imagine them to both look great with radiant glove and shoulder armor.

  • Spinder

    Halo on a charr.

    • Spinder

      sigh big images are big

      • virulent

        saw it on a charr yesterday n the halo is just bigger :c no fair :s

  • Tand

    Can both potions be used simultaneously?

    • Don’t think so

      • Tandalvia

        Friend of mine got both and confirmed it can’t be done.

    • Don’t think so

  • Luciela

    Can you give a potion to another player?

    • No it is account bound

    • No it is account bound

      • Luciela

        Ok thanks!

  • Drakogen

    Horns on a real man!

  • Krystal S. S.

    here you go dulfykins:

  • x3n0n

    Halo has not its own color but get the ambient light. So you can have a red one too. Just remember this when you will take a photo

  • Kito

    Dulfy I was wondering what armor do you use on your mesmer?

    • Ascalonian legs, Invaders top from WvW, Embroidered crafted shoes. Rest are all invaders set as well

  • Dulfy I registered just to post here, love your work. I got my Halo 2 days ago. Here is the pics on my mesmer. I wish its more vibrant as its quite transparent, quite disappointed 🙁

    • Thanks for the pic, are you using sweetfx? Your graphics look really sharp

      • Yes I am using sweetfx, it runs flawlessly. But this living story is making my Rig work so much poor thing 🙁

    • Epic.

    • felix

      looks awesome!

  • Malastair

    Halo on the Guardian

  • Anyone have a pic of a charr with the horns. So it would look like the charr has 4 horns xD

  • Lord

    HI Dulfy, can you correct this :
    Standard Citizen’s Rescue bags you get from reaching various tiers of citizens rescued (100, 300, 600, 1000, 1500)
    since the patch you get Standard Citizen’s Rescue bags you get from reaching various tiers of citizens rescued (100, 300, 600, 900) which gives you 1.
    Ultimate Citizen’s Rescue bags you get from reaching last tier of citizens rescued (1200) which gives you 5 Found Heirlooms.

    Thanks a lot for all the amazing stuff you make.

    • Corrected

      • Lord

        Thanks again for all the stuff you provided so far.

    I was talking with some other people and they can’t see my halo at all. Is this just a personal viewing thing?

  • GuardianAngel

    my guardian angel ;D

  • Retro

    Here are my horns:3 btw, can other people actually see them? Because I haven’t seen a single person with either horns or a halo and I don’t really have anyone to ask whether they can see it on me 😛

    • Yes others can see your horns/halos 🙂

      • Retro

        Awesome, thanks 🙂
