Kaidan.6509 Posted April 30, 2019 Share Posted April 30, 2019 Not only is it racist. Get it? Ha. I joke.Race-specific potions ( Potion of Centaur slaying, Potion of Grawl Slaying, etc ) are the least used consumable item in the entire game. In fact many people are not even aware they even exist. Many people do not even waste a buff slot even applying it for the first 79 levels of the game. So why not overhaul it to be useful?The main issues;It uses valuable resources to make items no one wants. The actual items used to make the potions are more expensive than the potion it self! Some crafting materials cost around 1 silver takes about 5 of them to make. While the selling price of the potion is 6 copper or less in Black Lion Trader. That means the material cost is 9900%+ more than the result. The potions and runes are EXTREMELY specific and waste inventory \ upgrade slot space. In a game which makes you buy slot space, wasting space on potions that provide extremely little benefit is like shooting your self in the foot. Why waste space on potions when I can save those slots to actual useful items instead? Which means you need to waste a weapon slot to carry a weapon just to get a tiny advantage against a tiny percentage of enemies. Logical? No.First step?Remove all race specific potions and runes, don't worry I can guarantee that no one will care. Literally, the only person who would care is the person who thought it was a "great idea" in the first place.Next.Replace the potions with more Generic Variants.Beast Potion: Bonus damage to all beasts ( animals \ centaurs )Spirit Potion: Bonus damage to all Elemental \ Spirit enemies ( Elementals, Ghosts, Destroyers )Slayer of False Gods Potion: Bonus damage to Humanoid style enemies ( Asura \ Human \ Charr \ Norn \ Sylvarri ) Slayer of Lesser Gods: Bonus damage to Lesser Races ( Hylek, Tree Frogs, Quaggan, Sea Snakes, etc ) Undead Slayer Potion: Bonus damage to Undead, Awakened, Forged, Ascalonians, Rift enemies Also level specific potions should be sold from vendors to replace all these useless armor \ weapon vendors around Core map. Once you are past level 10 why would anyone buy a common weapon or armor from them? Just remove them and add useful merchants that give useful items to players. Not features no one ever uses. This will reduce the number of inventory spam and make the potions useful by grouping up large categories.Having a Rune version means carrying multiple versions of a weapon based on the type of content area you are in, Which is just a terrible idea. Instead, group all the runes into a single rune ( Master of Death Rune ).After you kill 20 enemies of the same type gain a 10% bonus damage to that enemy type ( from above ) resets on Death.
