    because conquest is the only mode where people will wait to take it last because of gold rates.

    Its still too expensive anyway. People would rather go for the 3k pot.

    No, rather go 3k pot.

    When you reach a point where you can get Elixir of Speed, and sell boots and get a new item, some people would rather just get the 3k pot.

    In fact, you need more gold in-hand to be able to back and get Elixir of Speed, and sell boots and get a new item.

    Assuming you back with 3.5k gold, you sell boots at 1kplus, so you have 4.5k+, minus Elixir cost you have 2.5k+ for the new item. If you want a 3k new item, you need to back with 4k or near 4k gold.

    Versus backing with 3,120 gold and getting 3k pot plus 1 sentry ward.

    Simple math shows that the cost of Elixir of Speed is too high, and thus not worthwhile to get when you can just get a 3k pot.

    Not forgetting 3k pot increases power by 25%, plus increase damage done to structures by 25%. The increased structure damage is especially helpful during the late game phase.

    The cost will be reduced accordingly once Patch 6.1 is live. The developers will be able to gather data and then try to arrive at a better price point for the Elixir.

    off the top of my head, the only god that should definitely get the potion nearly every game is Mercury. otherwise, a game has to go really long to justify it.

    Answering OP's original question: Conquest is the only map that needs it due to how large it is, and the fact that a 6th full and proper items over boots will actually help past a certain point cause of how the scaling works for minions and jungle creatures.

    That's actually exactly why they put this in, is for those really long games.
