Therefor the argument you are trying to prove in this rant is that drinking 1/4th of a potion is considered a large quantity in runescape. What is the average quantity you drink in runescape in a given action? A whole jug, a whole bottle, etc.
Therefor in comparision to average quantities of drinking, a dose of potion is considerably smaller by comparison. So in the world of runescape where everyone drinks full jugs/bottles/buckets of drink someone who drinks 1/4th of a tiny bottle of potion would be SIPping it.
Also dont strawman this argument by saying "Well in real life that would be a big drink" because this isn't real life and all laws of the universe dont matter. In runescape a whole shark could be a snack and your character can drink jugs/bottles/barrels/buckets of drinks in one action.
I don't see where in those definitions it said anything concerning "large quantities." Also, i'm fairly sure there are a lot more potions than jugs. So your 'average' theory is pretty baseless.
You seem to have missed the fact that both of your definitions of 'sip' referred to drinking, so drink would still be correct... And since there is not a sip option, in Runescape, drink is correct. Not sip.
Give up, [bleep]ing lol.
Are you completely stupid im not talking about how many potions there are in the game compared to jugs of wine I am talking about the size of a jug of wine compared to the size of a vial. So your objection to my "average size" theory is pretty baseless.
Also Sip is more descriptive then drink. Is english your second language and you are struggling to learn new vocabulary? I cant think of any reason why you want the text to be less descriptive then stupidity, laziness [given you dont wanna learn English] or trolling.
Also since I dont really care whether this is a troll thread or not and I wanna prove my point here is the weight of the objects in question.
Jug of wine [which you drink in one gulp]: 1.5 kg
Bottle of wine: 1 kg
Bucket of Milk: 2.2 kg
Attack Potion (4): 0 kg
Also lets say that the weight values didn't make sense. Sip implies that you didnt drink the whole thing, while to drink means you finished it off.
I drank the soda [implied that you drank most or all of it]
I drink soda daily [implies you drink an unspecified amount in any given day]
I am drinking the soda [you are in the act of drinking it and are drinking more then a tiny amount]
I sipped the soda [implies you had a taste of it but didn't drink a substantial amount]
In the case of all runescape drinks but potions you finish it off in one gulp. Potions you dont, making it by comparison to how your character otherwise behaves a small quantity being drunk. Also with the case of the weight of the drinks, potions weight nothing implying that they are tiny and hold very little liquid while other drinks you drink in one gulp are substantially bigger.
Another strawman reply and I conclude this to be a troll thread, and there goes your creditability on future topics
