Is it still rude to swig potions in PVP combat?

Hope not because in Warhammer Online I have an overabundance of potions in my bags. From armor potions to strength potions, there is NO shortage of the mystical brews in this game.


In World of Warcraft, it was not uncommon to be frowned upon if you "potted" or took a potion in combat to get your health back up. Many of your team mates would even make fun of you if they saw it. "LOLZ you couldn't beat that Mage withouth potting LOLOL!!11"

The enemy would post things on the forum like "Hey (insert name here) : I had you till your sissy ass potted!"


In World of Warcraft potions were expensive and really not to be treated like cheap cans of Aldi soda. At most I would usually carry around 4-7 healing pots for PVE and really only use them when desperate.


This is not the case in Warhammer Online however. Potions grow on trees, and many of them are all of different stats and varieties. In fact I usually take potions over PQ loot when offered the choice, or over other gear in quest rewards. You also get them in every Stage 1 Influence chapter you pass over.


So it is without care that I chug these things like mad when I am in RVR combat in the game. Lets face it. The PVE to Warhammer Online is not rocket science and it sure isn't hard. I can count on one hand, probably using three fingers, the amount of times I have actually died in PVE that DIDN'T involve some stage 3 PQ boss beating my ass down.


So I wonder now if the enemy players I face still follow the WoW etiquette and think that potting is for sissies. Well whatever they think, I love it when I go to full health and then crush my opponent in front of me. Think quick, use those potions. I don't really care if they get mad anymore, they are dead and I live.

Hey thanks for the realm points suckas!
