Default Alter the item delay?

What do you think about the item delay?
Should we keep it, change it, or get rid of it all together?
For the moment this is just to see what you think

Post your comments.

I myself don't like it, not for a second. I've died many times, just becuse the potions I had wouldn't be used fast enough. It's very frustrating when that happends.
This is a custom modification, it's not like this on the official servers.. which doesn't really have anything to do with it, but yeah.
People could say that it's good for WoE, becuse it'll hinder people from spamming White Potions. I don't agree though, becuse without the delay.. sure, they can stay alive a bit longer, but their potions will also run out way faster. Potions is a part of WoE.
So yeah, I would like to see it removed.

Just for your information, this has nothing to do with the character I play. My maincharacter is a priest, I don't use items like that, but I still hate the item-delay.

To be perfectly honest, I only defended it to Tekk (I'm the 'people') because I felt obligated too. I'm always playing Devil's Advocate. Personally, to tell the truth, I think it's retarded.

This server seems so obsessed with being like iRO. If you wanna be like iRO, take out the gay item delay. There is no point to it. Sure, people can spam potions in woe but honestly, how many can you hold. It's their business if they want to do that to survive. It's a WoE tactic. DOWN WITH THE LAMENESS.

You won't like it when you get mobbed by whatever you're levelling on as an advanced class =p

just leave it... more use for the priests. if you're getting mobbed and dying, just tele away. taking the delay away makes it less challenging, which is only for wussies. and pretty lame i would say :3

I don't agree with that. If you spam, you will loose your potions fast. The challange is the same. The difference is that, as you said, you'd have to flywing away alot.. but eh, okey? So, you do what you can, then fwing away.. to walk back, and repeat.. I don't see the "more challanging" part in that if I were to compare to staying, and using the potions I have to keep myself alive.

As for WoE, if you get mobbed, you would now die quite fast.. becuse you cant spam potions, so you just have to walk back.. and repeat..
Without the delay, you could stay alive a little bit longer, but at a cost.. the cost of loosing _alot_ of potions.
Some classes even have skills to enable them to carry more potions, so yeah.. the delay keeps them from using their potions to the max in my opinion. ~

I dislike the delay, it was a bitch just to use 10 red potions when I was a thief :|. I agree with what Tekk has to say xD nothing much to add.
