Edit: I find it nigh impossible to believe that, unless you either have no SP pots or no arcane, you would never use SP pots on an arcane. Pugging a lot (which I find tremendously fun, as you really never know what will happen), I tend to use SP pots every now and then just to give that little extra bump to make a "boss at 1% health" fail into a "victory", or similar close calls. Granted, while soloing I can take my time and not need to use potions (though I'm usually too impatient for that if I'm doing something like soloing epics pre-u14), but if you're grouping with anyone else, you're extremely likely to needing to pot on occasion, even if it's a very rare occasion. As a side-note, leveling speed on an arcane compared to a melee has to do with two simple things: AoE damage, and haste. I guarantee an arcane will level faster than a melee for 95% of people, but that's because haste and AoE damage lets you run to only the fights you need to do, and get them done quickly (I don't count invis, as it comes in clickies).

This thread is asinine.
If you think Mnemonic Potions are a bad thing, don't use them.
If you don't like it when other people use Mnemonic Potions, then don't play with those people.
It really is that simple.

I do chug mem pots sometimes, but when I do feel embarassed. Doing a life as a wizard taught me alot about mana consumption and when to use metamagic. Learning the hard way FTW!
/signed to the OP's suggestion. Mem pots are a bit of an easy button. Combine a stack of mem pots, a warforged sorcerer and a maximized jump score, and you get the easy button of DDO.
Having a first life water sav, at times find pots are very useful and at times needed because I have not elevated, nor do I care if I do or not, this toon to ultraleet WF supernerd whatever the **** status. I play for the fun of it. And if I need a pot or two I don't want any **** ing timers involved. More so if I need more than one pot on my bard in a quest and the rest of the party is failing 99% of the time I am the last one alive and on my way out via a tele scroll.
And this thread still sucks.
I've used pots.
I've used them when I've gotten a little carried away with my spells. Sometimes I liked to get spell happy. I'm having some fun. It can help after a hard day at work and I just want to blow every thing up that I see because I cannot to that to anyone that I have had to deal with all day.
I've used them when learning something new and kind of blew my sp a bit faster than I should have. I use them most when learning new stuff.
I've used them when something just went wrong and we were most of the way through a raid. Abbot mostly but a few others. I dislike having to do a second beat down though and would much rather reform. I disliked being in that party when the leader decided that we would do a second beat down. I much prefer a reform and try again.
I can play conservatively, more so after I've learned the content but sometimes I do like to have a little bit more fun and may blow a pot just playing around.
I do like to get through without pot usage but I don't care if someone wants to drink one or not. It is their choice and sometimes people like to have a little bit of fun.
Frankly dude, I don't think you really belong here anymore and it is time you found a different game to play. You are not having any fun it seems and you want to limit other players fun also.
Disappointed and without trust in the powers that be.
If I need ( when I need ) to quaff a mana pot I usually need to drink a several in a row as it means the situation went to hell and I'll have to spam heal fast enough to keep the party alive. In those situations I can't afford to break the healage sequencing because I lack mana...

You guys do realize the longer this thread gets the more likely it is they will actually make a change to what is being discussed here.....so can we all just shut up now plz
Scratt for president!!!!
It would only affect those without the skill to manage their sp or those that want to buy their completion.
I got a sorcerer, i got a fvs, i got stacks of major, i never use them and i usually pugs. It's pretty simple really: the group is up for the challenge, you don't need the extra SP; the group sucks, you don't deserve to complete the quest, try again with better equipment/skills/tactics.
You know, people talk about how you should get a Torc instead. I've never seen one drop. I know people who've tried for over a year to get a Torc and failed.
It's like saying you should just get a Ring of Spell Storing.
You should not be required to ransack a chest every week for a year in order to play your class. Screw that.
I said signed before, I say it again /signed
I know a lot of players say arcanes are imbalanced but they are not, however sp pots DO make them imbalanced, I think casters are on par with or even somewhat weaker than melees (at end game), however when you have access to unlimited SP then they are an easy button.
This is coming from a WF Sorc main.
If you don't put a limit to sp pot usage, then we should really give melees heal pots to even out the classes... one or the other.
Btw torc etc. doesn't really make that much of a difference at EE when the damage you receive easily outweighs the SP you get back, however SP pots ARE a cheap easy button.
Also the way I see it is arcanes are supposed to have superior power but be limited by sp and melees are supposed to have less power but have durability (I.e ability to attack without being limited by SP). Unfortunately the game has made melees damage output as good as arcanes, and with unlimited SP pots (which not everyone has access to) arcanes can attack for as long as melees. I think arcane damage output should be increased but sp pot usage should be limited.

"Focus on Adventure Not Grind"
Edit: Either way I think we both agree on the point the OP is making, SP pots should be on a timer or max 1 per quest etc.
"Focus on Adventure Not Grind"
Agree with the majority here, don't drink pots yourself or don't pug where pots will be quaffed. Instead of forcing your silly little despot tactics on everyone
Gawd, time for these type of people to leave the game instead of making all these "time for my way or I'll hissy fit" threads ........
