I was wondering if Felicitous Philtre only buffs a class' base luck or all of it including enh on gears?
Wouldn't it be as simple as going to the testing servers, pop the potion and observe the stats? I would do this and give you a definitive answer, but I keep getting "Error Connecting to Server" when I try to go on PTR servers, and before anyone mentions it, yes, it was the right URL.
With the introduction of increased potion stack sizes, especially ones like Felicitous Philtre, are luck based classes getting a huge edge over wizard ones or only a small edge?
I don't think it will shake up the class meta in any major way, the class itself still needs to be good in order to be good with the potion. Master Ranger is still bad, no matter how many of these potions you chug. Good classes will still be good and bad classes will still be bad, although slightly better, I guess. The only time I see the difference between a class that uses luck + potion vs. a class that uses wiz + potion, is when the classes are already neck and neck, and it just so happens to benefit the luck class more, giving it an edge. But all of this is still subjective, not objective and we are talking differences of a couple seconds when doing the same task.
the aforementioned potion is really strong AND is fully loopable (for me at least) and you should totally stock up on lots of it
You need a haste of minimum 25% to be able to loop it, because the potion effect lasts 45 seconds and potion cooldowns are 60 seconds. It was just out loopable reach with your standard haste of approximately 20% with most luck classes at max level The couple seconds you are without the buff are not the end of the world though.
I think people are overrating the potion, it's nice to see bigger numbers and bigger numbers equals better farming efficiency, but the time saved seems minimal, unless your mission is to solo a boss multitudes of times. The total damage increase is only about 10-25%, depending on class anyways, taking into consideration the average crit rates of a class, with a couple exceptions like Vampire lord and Glacial Berserker with their crit rates of basically 100%, and even in those cases, the damage increase is only about 35%. The potion also doesn't necessarily pay for itself, both in terms of time and gold spent. It's probably worth picking up a stack every now and then, if you are online and not doing anything anyways, though. For the most part, it's just unnecessary, in my case.
My personal issue with spending money on all those potions is that with my gold being way over the cap, I cannot gain gold, so my gold would just disappear, 2000 at a time, which adds up. My situation is of course very rare, I realize that, but I don't like throwing money away like that. I already spent enough on enhancing whatever new gear I obtain, or old un-enhanced/wrongly enhanced stuff in my bank, when I want to use it.
