If you use a stat enhancing potion to equip some gear, when the potion wears off you can still use the gear. This allows you to stack your character with a lot of equipment they really shouldnīt be able to use. Is this by design?

It's mostly be design. There are a few effects in the game like disease that lower your stats quite a bit. I decided things like that would be way more deadly than I intended if those lost stats invalidated your equipment also. So I don't allow the potion loophole exactly, but it is the same thing as the disease case.

I've used this once, but I try to ignore it as it seems too borderline to me. The one time I used it was to equip a piece that boosted the same stat as the potion. ;)

Ahh. I didnīt think of the reverse case.
