so now that the default stock potion is infinite (amazing change, very glad it happened) i find myself not wanting to use the legendary potions at all. the effects they give are so minimal i would rather just not even use the inventory slot (which is saying something considering the thing is a 1x1 slot lol).
i dont think the potions need to be buffed or anything. i think a simple fix would be to let me just put the potion into my bar. by that i mean, rather than just equiping the potion and keeping it in my inventory, let me put the potion in my potion slot on my bar as if it was a helmet or weapon.
your thoughts? is it just me that doesnt even ID or pickup potions anymore? lol
I pretty much feel the same. I think they share the loot table with legendaries, so I even feel they take away a chance of a good item dropping. Town in party games gets so trashed with them after a few hours as well.
I can not remember the last time (if ever) I thought "that 60 extra all res for 5 seconds really saved me" or "I wish I had potion x to use the effect now". Only on my DH I ever wished for the one to break walls, only to remember I can not use it when full health and will probably die anyway when taking damage
On the other hand, I often end up leaving a belt/ring/amu behind because my inventory is full.
Thanks for reminding me I can just drop it and have that extra slot
PS: If you have multiple potions in your inventory, you can right click on the bar and pick the one you want to use. While, in theory, this might enable some high end plays, the bonus is too small to matter. However, this system would prevent you putting a potion directly on your bar, or as a gear slot.
I think some of them are really worth it. Like Zoltan kull-aid can save you against a frozen/jwaller combo very often for example. Aside from that, who really cares about 1 inventory slot? :p I have alternate gear pieces or gems in my inventory already, along with keys of all sorts, that one slot isn't gonna make a difference. If you really wanna pick up every item that drops, just take the 5 seconds to go to town and salvage everything
