    Pot nerf/Potion Sickness (restricted to 1 pot for a boss?)

    When i took a potion (while in combat) right after the new patch was applied i noticed this little debuff

    Potion sickness
    Unable to consume potions until you rest out of combat for a short duration

    You keep this debuff until you are out of combat, taking a pot does still trigger a 2 min cd tho.

    Why the hell would this be necessary, or a good idea?

    Blizzard's reasoning on this escapes me entirely ???

    Was this a mana/health pot or an elixir?

    Im assuming its a mana/health pot, but i gotta ask just in case.

    Wonderful for healers on long boss fights then. :

    (or am I missing something here?)

    no i had the exact same thoughts :P, the debuff will not go away no matter how long you are in combat, you really have to go out of combat for the debuff to dissapear

    Sounds good, loved the elixir/flask change too.

    Of course fights would be balanced around "one pot per person", rather than "as many pots as possible per person", just like with flasks/elixiers.

    WHen I read this I read "We now will make the players have to rely on each other to give mana back rather than the raid relying on consumables" (Lots of classes are gaining abilities to give players mana now)

    Imo, this will be good....you just don't see it yet

    i geus we will have to wait and see how this will be on the long boss fights 10 min+ and how this will effect raid setups before we can see it as a good or bad thing

    Some how I don't believe you and think this debuff was obtained another way, just a convenient name. The reason I don't believe it is of how the screen shot was presented, gimme a full shot and I'll believe it.

    Maybe a balance to the new mana restore of hunters/ret paladins, raidwide mana totems and spirit changes.

    looks like there will also be a debuff ("Tinnitus, you can't hear drums for the next 2min" or something) that will stop you from chain drumming. one per group, that's it.

    they want raid encounters to depend more on skill and class abilities than consumables.
