Concerning flaming, you should leave this thread alone if you have those sort of intentions. I didn't come here for that and I'm sure you didn't either.
I stopped buying potions from merchants in Delphi two days ago and decided potions would only be used in combat against bosses, otherwise I would only use them outside of combat to top up my health.
I never intended to rain on anyone's parade here with my suggestions, it just seems to me combat is more fun and interesting if you don't use health potions all the time. I used to stand in pools of acid and fire and not even move hacking and slashing away in a zombie-like fashion with little regard for my abilities or any strategy on how to fight the monsters.
I just think it's a shame combat could get to that point where you don't really care much because in six seconds another health potion will save you. I'm sure not all players think or play like this but it's an easy habit to get into and a hard one to break out of. That's why I posted the thread and if you think the idea sucks, cool, no problem. But don't tell me one or two people represent the bigger majority of the community because that's not the case at all. (Final Edit - missed a comma.)
