Acually, as I said before, it varies. On hardcore on any realm, there are no restrictions, you build at whatever level you want to and see who duels you. In my opinion, the restrictions are pretty stupid on any realm to be applied as "the way it is". If you want to play by, for example, lld101 rules, which say level 30 is the cap, then great. All that means is really that, when playing with lld101ers, or in a lld101 tournament, you cant go above level 30. To then apply any such standard to ALL llders is ridiculous. If I want to make a level 35, I'll make a level 35, I dont particularly care what you call it (low or mid), but dont try and tell me I cant participate in a public low level dueling game with any reasonably low character. Of course, bringing a level 75 into a low level duel game is ridiculous, as a level 75 is clearly a high level dueler.lld is MAX 30 on any realm. on europe i belive they deem 29 as the max but still no where is 31 or greater lld. the people that you see in lld games that are > 30 are either noobs or are idiots who want to 'own' a llder.
dont use a shield and my lvl 18 zealot will kill you.
Nothing personal, but I dont buy the argument that nothing over 30 is LLD. To me, LLD is an open ended term. I couldnt agree more that comparing a 30 to a 42 is ridiculous, likewise, a 49 to a 42. However, I would hardly call a 31 a mid level dueler, because the VAST majority of mid level duelers are going to be 42+ casters, a boatload of barbs using Oaths, etc etc. IMO, the relatively small number of increases in items (30% ed jewels, shaft, ribcracker, headstriker, moderately better charms, waterwalks etc) found in the 30's makes duelers in their 30's MUCH more comperable to sub-30 duelers than it does going the other way, into the 40s and 50's with mid level duelers using the likes of Oath, HoZ, Skillers, Facets, 'jewelers' items, 40%ed jewels, etc.settle down. i duel pubby games all the time i have no trouble with higher levels in a duel game it's stupid to compare 42 builds with 30 builds though. the power level of casters specifically jumps at that level b/c of skillers. another jump occurs at 49 when facets come into play.
if you dont cut it off somewhere there is no "low" dueling. 30 is a good cap. every class has the ability at 30 to use all of it's skills. there's a good selection of gear available. lld101 does a decent job of making the field more level in my opinion. they cap specific builds at lower levels.
this isnt a discusion about lld. i make higher level duelers, i like them but i dont run around calling them lld just like i wouldnt call a lvl ** mld.
Geez dude... I hope English is a second language for you, because other than that, you have no excuse for the needless aggression. All I said was 'LLD stops at 30 because... ?', and then you come in with the oh-so-arrogant-holier-than-thou flaming. Generally reactions like yours are why folks don't post much here at all. Heaps read, but very, very few actually post.If you're going to be a smart-arse about it why did you even bother asking? It doesn't matter what you do, Jab is better than Impale. But don't listen to anyone here, even though it was you that asked the question in the first place. Have fun getting your ponytail handed to you by all the lvl 9s (with better equipment than what you plan... if you're going for DR why havn't you included Rockfleece in your setup?) that are going to own you.
