i know hades gear and shadow is very op but i don't mind it too much. what i do mind thou is darkmoor gear.
at lvl 50 everybody uses warlord gear which give about 50 resist at lvl 100 everybody uses darkmoor gear which give about 46
but lvl 50 have 1800-2500 health lvl 100 mostly have 4000-5500 health
at lvl 50 most people got damage around 40-60 at lvl 100 most people got damage around 90-110
at lvl 50 most have 115 block at lvl 100 most got 250 block
at lvl 50 most got 110 critical at lvl 100 most have 400 critical (115 usually never block)
at lvl 50 mot got pips chance of 60-77% at lvl 100 most got pips chance of 90-105%
and at lvl 100, they have every spell a lvl 50 could have plus MORE. yes the Shadow Enchanted Spells.
A hit from that is GG if no shield, EVEN with shield is gg if they critical and they critical ALLOT.
you say why not shield and weakness. we can do that all day and barely survive, but if we take one round to blade is GG if we don't then we can't kill with this low damage and there high resist and health.
so please consider darkmoor gear and new spells HUGE advantage and 99% guarantee of winning and make it fair for all player at all level
