Missing Potions?

I have played quite a bit of Angband, but I've never seen this.

v4, and I have never, not once, seen a Restore potion - not for STR, INT, WIS, anything. Is that a bug?

Restore potions haven't been in for several versions now. Stat potions increase to maximum before adding to the stat, mushrooms of vigor restore all stats and leveling up restores all stats as well.

Interesting. Why were they taken out?

They were tedious. Real question is why do mushrooms of vigor exist?

Because it's tricky to get the rarity balance right if one wants to rely only on statgain potions for restoring, I think.

(incidentally: potions of life restore stats, too, but it would be like lighting a cigarette with a $100 note).

I've concluded that they literally exist because Morgoth hits to drain all stats.

But that's what potions of life are for. I think vigor exists because they don't want to take a hard stance against scumming for stat restoration consumables. Highly motivated tedium partisans can still do it.

You can get Vigors at all levels though, !Life are like 3500' and deeper.

More importantly, it's more obviously a waste to use !Life just to restore stats, whereas people have a tendency toward poor judgement when it comes to deciding whether restoring ones stats is worth a half hour of scumming.
