9lvl pvp(vlld) is boring as hell, i have made 9lvl sacri pala once and got bored to it immidietly, its just click, hold and hope that you get big hits more than your opponent and that you block more than opponent. there arent meny real vlld players at hc tho, so killing some cow king or sigon set using chars(ck boots are 13lvl btw) with sacri pala that makes over 1k dmg and 50% crit and has ~550 life with 75% block is np.
dueling with random newbs is boring as hell, no challenge and no point really. nowadays i play only good mannered lld and mld(29-49lvl duels) with friends(or people i know) who know what theyr doing. occosianally i slay retarted newbies who host my low lvls with theyr crap high lvl chars with my high lvl libby tho. gm duels is all about skills, tactics and knowing your char(and how to build it without needing eny kind of pots(including thawing and manas allso)) and your enemies chars and knowing all of theyr tactics.
