Ranked pots will only benefit the guilds that are already huge in any significant way. It's startling how little foresight the people in this thread have.
I mean if you guys are against removing them from pve, that's fine. I still think it's stupid as crap and your reasoning is all hilariously inaccurate, but I really don't care about that.
But anyone who thinks WoE pots need to stay available in WoE has been hitting the poring pipe too hard. It has an extremely negative impact on the meta that focuses the entire game on one class essentially, and it gives massive advantages to already-established guilds (including mine, for those wondering, no I am not in a tiny struggling guild, we're in an alde castle). WoE pots are toxic for WoE.
It's an MMORPG. Ask the ranked alchemists to make them for you or buy them from the ranked alchemists. It's ok to communicate with people you know.
