    Yep. I have to mash the button like 3 times before it chugs down the potion.

    Apparently it's that you can't use potions while the Javelin skill is deployed - you need to wait for it to return. It's a pot-lock that's coded into the character. Pretty shoddy coding. =/

    I'm not sure if it's intentional or not, but it's definitely uncalled for.
    This should be changed.

    Same issue here. As mentioned it results in frequent deaths and extreme potion expenditure, as well as constant frustration.

    The class is not enjoyable at all at the moment.

    I'd like to add that this issue starts in 4th job, and also applies to moving his battery/crystal around. Prior to 4th job you can pot and move the crystal seamlessly while attacking/teleporting, after 4th job you usually have to stop doing other actions and hit the button 3-4 times.
