Purchasing an elixir while dead should halt the time progress until the purchasee is returned alive. However, currently the time progress for the Elixir starts ticking down the moment it is purchased.
1. Die with at least 500 gold and level 9 (?).
2. Purchase an elixir.
3. Watch the Elixir buff tick down while still dead.
