    Default Buff potions should not be affected by purges

    Not everyone does PvE and I am one of them. I am sure I am not alone in this matter.

    Currently, all buffs that are provided by crafted potions are purge-able by other players. As some of you may know, high-end potions are not cheap nor easy to make (especially stat vials since they cost eternal planar dust.)

    I am making the suggestion that all player cast buffs can be purge-able, such as mage armors and cleric HoTs. All item cast buffs, such as vials and HoT/MoT potions, should not be purge-able.

    Let me know what you think!

    Gotta agree with this. Blood Thirsty isn't, and even at 50g it's cheaper than a lot of these potions.

    Only reasoning I see for it is that Trion simply doesn't want you using the potions in PvP, since it creates an imbalance between rich/poor players, but meh.

    Very true. A big problem is that Trion makes potions so expensive.

    For example:
    (excluding flowers and bottles)
    Uncommon Brightsurge Vial - 30int/30wis for 1 hour, costs 1 eternal dust to make 2
    Rare Brightsurge Vial - 35int/35wis for 1 hour, costs 1 uncommon brightsurge and 2 dust to make 2

    Dust goes for 3 to 5 plat each on my server so essentially 1 blue buff pot is worth about 6-7 plat.

    I come from Warhammer and I feel like they had the purge system done right.

    There are a ton of things that shouldn't be able to be purged. I had to refresh my Lifegiving Veil on cooldown during a 3min battle at Codex. It went up and was immediately taken down.

    Potions aren't cheap, they shouldn't be purge-able either.

    Alas, Trion doesn't give a sh*t about PvP. Maybe we'll get lucky and they'll fix it in the next few patches.

    there's a lot more off about potions then just them being able to be purged =( some player buffs actually overwrite certain potions T^T makes you wonder why they are actually in game =S
