Therefore the best option is to control it. Legalise and restrict it.
Or reduce burst damage in PVP/WoE accordingly and just put a huge-arse cooldown
on pot usage.
Pot spam has been addressed by pretty much every MMO with PVP elements, even RO2 has addressed it, and it's not like pot cooldown mechanics don't exist in RO1 because Green Ale.
Added boon to implementing pot cooldowns: Increased power to auto-attackers (attacking with noctrl, for those of you not familiar with MOBA terminology) since their primary strength is consistent damage over time, something this current 1HKO or GTFO because autopotspam
meta has rendered essentially irrelevant. Also buffs HPs and ABs with their Healing presence, as well as Champs/Suras and Pally/RGs to a lesser degree.
