    Needs to be changed back to ONE STONE!!!

    With the new POISON changes & SHATTER POTIONS you run out of everything in just a few minutes.


    SHATTER POTIONS are dumb... delete them :)

    As much as I hate potions and how they ruin PvP, the change to two stones is quite dumb. Rather than reducing how much people use potions it just makes it more annoying having to restock constantly as well as being unable to fully loot people anymore.

    Honestly...

    the only things the potion weight change did is:

    - Make it so you cannot loot other peoples pots because you are loaded with your own

    - Beat any char with alchemy in the face (cant carry a ton of exp/conflag pots)

    - Hurt elves because humans can carry alot more potions


    Like i've mentioned before, if you have alchemy your potion weight should eb scaled, or you should be able to carry an "alchemists satchel" with weight reduction.

    Cetric you talk a lot of sense, however i'm always inherently against anything that doesn't simplify the game.

    2 stones/empty 4 stones/full for healing/cure potions only.

    10 potions 1 stone, replace the timer with pvp weakening (the more you drink the more damage you take from a player blow for a certain time) and voilĂ , alchemy back on pvm and pvp not screwed up. Is this asking for the moon?

    I sell and use potions, so obviously I'm going to be biased toward any change that increases the utility of pots

    I agree...Shatter Pots Really...?

    I laught at the newbs that actually use them, I guess people run out of red pots and die...that is sad.

    They only end the fight so I can go restock...is that what we need in PVP?

    GM alchemists could wear/use Alchemist Satchel. With the requirement of having GM Alchemy skill. The Satchel would store potions of all kinds with 50% Lower Weight mod on it. Now that I would love.

    The problem is that in pvm you need 500 of each type to make some use out of it.

    How about 1 poison charge on a weap per potion, it's a bit silly that currently one poison potion on a weap is 12 charges which could take over 150 cure potions to cure.

    You just need to carry your pots in a keg. 50 pots alone = 100 stone. 50 pots in a keg = 50 stones (just like before the changes). Can't believe more people have not figured this out yet.

    Done that. Doesn't change anything, still too heavy. That's why i said 10 bottles 1 stone.

    I agree, pots are a Major crutch, however I am curious, are Shatter Potions still obtainable?

    I've only used 1-2 of em, that I've looted from someone... lowering the amount of resources that your opponent has is Amazing.

    I am also curious if Shatter Potions, are used on someone who only carries shatter potions, would it break those as well?

    NEED? lol, like everyone NEEDS to be a mystic to heal EVERYTHING all at once? or deal massive AoE damage? and NEEDS to be a mystic for the best transformation in the game.

    Just a lame excuse for a lack of balance, or maybe to quick and not as well thought out balance. Keep it simple so the majority can do it.. yeah.. then the skilled will be less rewarded.. I'll end this before it gets to deep :p.

    Wtf does weight even matter anyways? to limit people? from what? carrying to many macefighting weapons? woopie... stacked pots can't be insured anyways and what happens when a resource dependent character dies? Items get looted. Just more for the looters...
     
  29. I would have to disagree. The last time things got lighter there went the reagent looting. I think the weight is fine. Leave it. LRC killed the reg market and took away the need to restock.

    People adapted very well: noone uses potions in pvm anymore. I think i'm the only pvmer left that still carries a handful of conflagration bottles, and just for sentimental reasons.

    They should change the weight back or at least remove shatter potions...

    Shatter Potions, Splintering Weapon, and Bestial Suits have pretty much ruined the pvp in this game.

    Well im lost for words needing pots to pvm ! worst thread eva!
     
  35. I think it is a great change. Weight needs to be used to prevent just what you are all complaining about.

    Having tons of potions, weapons, armor etc in your pack to freely switch and use is just plain silly.

    Might as well just have a potion IV set up that drips into your veins.

    Id even like to see drinking a potion disrupted or a you only swallow half.

    Shatter potions do nothing for this game... period. Bestial suits are a joke. Splintering weapons are on the verge of running rampant.
