I was invited to beta test Legendary Champions. I create my character and log in. I open my bag, equip my gear, and notice all the potions they gave me. I didn't give it a second thought. So I run around town for about 4-5 minutes turning in quests and dinging lvl 6. So then I headed out of town to go kill some bears and some cubs for two of my quests. I'm hitting skills and some of them aren't registering and I notice that I keep using "Novice Healing Potion" or "Novice Mana Potion" and that's why some of my skills aren't going through. Perhaps it's just me but I really find these games that require to use potions obsessively to be quite annoying. Not to mention pointless. The only logical reason I can figure for having a game mechanic like this is nothing other than to make money in the item malls off of potions. That I don't mind. However, I think it is used way to excessively in this game, and I've played a few others that do the same thing.
Legendary Champions had me thinking "Wow, I really like this game already!" and then the potion spams hit me. So what do you guys think about these types of games using potions so heavily?
