well they could always just make a catch animation so the other character can catchs the potion and drinks it.
People were saying that poison is stupid because it goes through the boots this is the same thing... just a matter of taste when it comes to realism i guess
Walking through healing liquid is the same thing at the end...
Using the fact that you can walk through a puddle to heal, even though it's dumb, is not a great argument for also being able to be healed/affected by thrown potions. While allowing both of ^ as opposed to one or the other is more consistent, removing both would be equally
consistent and make more sense and have less of an effect on game balance.
Also, I'm already looking forward to the terrible hafling animations for catching XD.
