    Please add a clear chat log entry when we drink a potion, with potion name.

    We at Every Virtue is Lasting guild have a weekly pvp tourney. Recently some questions are coming from the audience as to how we can prove that someone is actually not using dis-allowed potions. We reviewed the chat log and found no specific evidence what potions were being used.

    If the chat log had an entry like "Avatar drinks Health Potion Imbued for 280 points of healing", or "Avatar is healed for 280 by drinking Health Potion" it would be more clear. If the potion doesn't have a specific numerical effect it could at least say "Avatar used Smelling Salts potion" or something like that.

    You see, we decided to allow poison, cure poison and smelling salts only. We figure that all the regeneration, health and focus potions would extend the fights artificially. They already go pretty long for the fighters with a really strong Life tree.

    just allow the potions, it take a longer global cooldown than heals and you are still limited by the cooldown.... but yea, it should still be described in the combat log on HOW the player was healed. For EVERYTHING.
