I know. Someone earlier said the potion bumps was more like a bug than a loophole. This sparked my comments. I firmly believe that it is a loophole to help with the sometimes crazy weapon/armour requirements.
I think it all depends on how it's done and applied. The end results could end up very beneficial or make the game fall completly on it's face.
I still feel it shouldn't be tinkered with - or if the change is necessary, put it in the hardcore/options selection area. (Call it "realistic requirements" or something of the like.)
