To the op
i don't see how it actualy efects you. actualy it benefits us all if those who need to do. you see its all cash in ddo coffers and that's the only thing that keeps this game going.
Quite simply you play your way. don't use any pots if that's you thing . even better lets get rid of mana as that isn't in dnd. Back to the rules i say. casters can only cast as many times per rest as they have spell slots.
Quite frankly sick to death of those who think they have the right to tell people ho to play the game.
Better luck next time.
Scratt for president!!!!
What I was trying to say is that a melee in the end, never stops fighting because you're not dependant to a "blue bar", the strongest point of a caster is it's blue bar, aside all the other items they can use, and unless you have arti past life and 3 wizzy past lifes to really have an UBER wand to work in any lvl situation, then it's kinda complicated to talk about limiting the "blue bar healing pot", especially since lots of players just deplete it out of a spasmic reaction to not knowing what to do.
Each player is entitled to do whatever he/she wants with what he/she looted - bought - saved.
By the way, I know it's the "cool" thing to do, to prove how much of a hard-case uber elite bad arse you are, by decrying the use of things like mnemonic potions...it proves your hard-coreness and makes you popular with all the other kids...we get it.
But seriously, no one here really cares how "cool" you are or how "uber", if all you're going to do is try to call for nerfs of everyone else and bully the less fortunate "uncool" kids. It's hostile, arrogant, and it's unproductive.
I'll let you in on a little secret. The truly awesome players don't waste time and energy showing off how "uber" they are by calling for the removal of tools they don't need just for the purpose of forcing the people who do like to use them to play out of their comfort zone. They instead spend their time just being awesome, and leading by example, mentoring the willing, and seeking to not only enjoy their own game play, but to enhance the game play experience of others...all while making it look easy.
So, feel free to carry on, but no matter whether you get mnemonics nerfed or not, you'll still not be any better at playing than you were before that, nor will anyone else be better at playing than they were...but a few will be markedly worse.
You are my hero, my idol, and my inspiration. Don't ever leave me, I would die of heartbreak.
I'm surprised the idiocy of the OP is still being debated.
The drop rate on mana potions is low. I rarely use them except in maybe a couple of quests, or in a quest where the actions of the group require me to do a lot of heavy lifting. If you have to chug a bunch of pots for an arcane, either the group dynaic is all wrong, or you're playing a caster wrong. Still, it is a source of income to Turbine, and a relatively rare drop which offsets (or implicity prohibits) frequent useage.
You think Turbine is going to shut off, or at best limit, a revenue generator that essentially costs them *nothing* to develop and support? If you do, you're either dense or insane.
If this is the case, I think it only fair that DDO implement a fatigue system whereby melees expend a limited supply of energy swinging their mighty sharp, pointy things on mobs, after which when they run out of energy, they become helpless. Same principle, different application. Then give them Ye Olde Red Bulleth to replenish their energy stores.
And then put those energy restorers on a timer. Then we'll talk about mana pots.
Antipan, Pandargon, Pandolin, Panifin, Panmorgan, Pangrael, and all other things "pan-ed"...
in reality, cases like this dont normally happen. if it ever gets to this point, than its a party wipe or people are scrambling to get out of the quest.
each scenario is different and depends on how many players are willing to consume and how many players actually bring with them the pots.
But I feel it time to withdraw from this thread, there simply isn't much to gain with all the hostility and name calling going on, this seems to be to loaded a topic to be handled civil way sadly.
