Aawh, Egoable shields didn't make it into the poll.
Will dream on...
It will give too much def/protection.....
You can have 100 def/ 40prot and still die in 2 hits from mostly everything at higher levels of play lol.
It won't when dueling at 0-3%
Mabinogi balance shoudn't be done based on pvp anyway.
Even more so when current pvp isn't even balanced and falls down onto a simple honor system of "Don't do this this this and this or this".
PvP was an after thought thrown in at some point before iria in both the free for all pvp dungeons (which while fun aren't balanced but 'better' in that it's just a free for all with no sides and no way to not hit people in the same party) and duels, which only have %s and ring out/pet summon rules, and then 'expanded on' with iria with EvG. Nothing at any point was ever altered or revamped with PvP in mind and no new content from that point on ever took PvP into consideration. What we have now, on the server and live, is 100% not balanced for any sort of pvp.
