They stealth nerfed potions a while back in preparation for those new auto self healing ones, but never put them in the game and left the changes or they are just “bugs” not getting fixed. Before brim you could dodge out of the animation and etc. now you’re completely locked into it. Health potions also now don’t heal you when you take any source of damage when drinking the health potion but you still get locked into the animation and the pot doesn’t go on cool down. And I mean any damage, not like a stagger or interrupt but a life staff basic attack. Extremely frustrating and happens on the regular.
I disagree. There’s a risk/reward involved with using a potion. That potions are on such a short cooldown is the real sin in this game. When you talk about things in this game that are broken related to healing potions and how fast they cooldown is the real silent problem. Moving more healing to individuals and devaluing the healing role isn’t the solution its the problem. The players should be relying on a healer to do their part while they do theirs. Not having a healer in a confrontation SHOULD be a significant obstacle. The people who think healers should be gone are the ones who need to be gone. This is an MMORPG with roles…and one of those roles is healing.
The other games I’ve played have 3-4 times the cooldown duration and heal for a fraction of the health pool we get compared to how healing works in New World.
I’m quoting to note or emphasize that I find his comment valuable and that he decided to use the words “Extremely frustrating” on it. Please, note it.
If something is “Extremely frustrating” in a MMO. It should be fix it ASAP.
Make potions lightning fast.
Stop preventing dodges while using a potion.
Let the potion and the dodge be used simultaneosly.
Please. And I really mean PLEASE. Make the game more dynamic. Less rigid / archaic.
There are plenty of examples where PVPers are asking for healers to be removed from PVP entirely. Case and point arenas. Those players come from a non MMORPG pvp background and don’t understand that 1v1 balance is non existent in a role based game. Different roles exist to do different things and pitted against one another different roles will dominate the other.
