Pipes are special items that your characters can equip to enhance an herb's effects.
Upgrading your pipe will increase its potency. They can be upgraded three times, and the cost is significantly more for each tier of upgrade. Pipes can be upgraded in towns and sometimes through encounters with traveling merchants.
The Pipe Smith can also upgrade your pipe at a discounted price.
Note: When the Witch Doctor scourge is active, all party members pipe levels are reduced by 1.
This is not listed anywhere in the game, it may be a glitch or an oversight.
The higher the upgrade on your pipe, the better the results are when your character uses an herb:
