    Red pot and elixers should not be able to be purchased early

    Just played a conquest game where 3 of the 5 players on the enemy team went red/purple pot. They rekt us. The only solution. Buy it yourself. Or make pots purchaseable at the 10 min mark. You shouldn't be able to buy those items early on.
    Thoughts?

    My thoughts: Learn to play. These potions don't give that much advantage, they rekt you because you did not play well.

    I agree. I posted this a while back. As a mage I have almost 100 power to start the game at lvl 1 with power potion and power buff. With Anubis who has some of the highest damage in the game I could 2 shot other mages with 2 abilities in seconds. Ah Puch is just as bad.

    Nothing wrong with having multiple Conquest starts.

    Then they should lower the price for tier 1 of items so you can have multiple starts. Power potion offers to much power at the start, especially for mages. They dominate lane when they have it. Smite has shown they don't like it when everyones starts the same way, its getting to the point that every starts power potion and then they'll change it.

    So if it becomes a problem then they will change it.

    A Power Pot is only worth it if you get kills with it, otherwise it is just a wasted 450 gold down the drain.

    This.

    Red pot start is risky. I only do it on God's that I know I can pay it off on.

    Pots like those are only good if you let the enemy team steamroll you.

    If you work well with your team, you can murder the enemy team and win the game rather easily.
    Art is merely an extension of our imagination. A true artist imagines more than they draw, write, or even play; art may cause a revolution, but imagination causes the uproar.

    I personally think power potion starts are ineffective, needlessly risky and a waste of early gold.
