Diablo® III

Potions in pvp?

Hi all,

I have been playing a little PTR recently and notice a lot of people are using potions to heal. In D2 it was considered bad mannered. I asked a monk I was dueling why he was using potions and he responded, " everyone uses them." Am I old schooled? Is potions considered ok? I don't even carry potions anymore, but may start to once the pvp patch hits if this is the case.

Am i an old school noob?

You can only use potions every 30 seconds, so it's not like you can spam them to avoid dying.

I never really do D2 pvp before this, but i can see a big difference between D2 and D3. In D3 potions have cooldown, so it is less exploitable. In D2 you can spam the potions. In D3 potions becomes a skill, a technique that needs timing.

Basically you can view it as a 7th skill that give you 12.5k hp that has 30 seconds cooldown. No diff to our breath of heaven. And everyone has it.

It is acceptable. With everybody gearing for eHP and Life Pools exceeding 80K, 12,500 life with a 30 sec cooldown will not be exploited. But yeah there will finally be a use for Health globe bonuses on gear =)

Yes I realize that. But I have been in duels that lasted more than a minute and the healing from potions of add up. Just wondering if it was accepted gameplay, that's all.

Cheers,

Thanks for the response Carl. Not that I'm any good so far in pvp anyway. Still experimenting and trying not to get one shotted. Lol.

Also a few people asked me if I was using potions and I said yes. They were most likely D2 players as well since potion spamming was taboo back then. They then responded that they will use them too and all was good, no name calling and what not. Game on-

EDIT: Note for some reason I only used potions in FFA but not in 1v1 situations now that I think about it. Probably my D2 conditioning.
