bm was created ? by whom? you? me ? its an ideal not an enforceable rule.Also, BM was created to balance the game, the point being that chars shouldnt use ITEMS (NOT SKILLS) that gave them too much of an advantage over other players, its what made duels competive. Instead of a race to see who can bm the other first which is common in regular pubs. Zons that use items to give themselves sooooo much slow, and knockback, are an example of a build that uses items vs non-tele melee chars to destroy them. Melee chars in turn use sorb and 95% maxed resists to block out casters etc.
I agree that the majority of so called bms are a load of bs, but some of these rules were made for the reason of balancing the game and therefore make sense
Except the one that means someone is not forced to duel you if you use 'BM' tatics...basically there is no rule preventing a dueler equiping ANY item in their stash they desire for say str/dex/class or lvl restriction
I wouldn't say so. The lack of a shield sort of evens it out IMO.I've also been wondering, is it bm to use an insight as an es sorc? (Since we are kind of on the meditation topic)
