I finally did it, got busy with life and didn't refresh the houses. It made me reflect a bit since I have had those three houses for seven years.
Thinking about what I loss in those houses.. it was pretty much everything.. I just never got around to putting it in banks on my various account...
You are probably doing it wrong. But archery by itself won't win against anyone in pvp - unless you are in a group of archers.
Learn the mechanics and adjust your thinking to the shard instead of trying to adjust the shard to your thinking.
Well, its apples and oranges cause:
Spells use Mana and Reagents
Have a casting time
Can be interrupted
But to answer your question:
Resisting Spells skills can reduce or cause no damage to a target from a spell (so miss)
Spells can be fizzled (so miss)
Spells can be reflected (so miss)
Are these too much of an advantage? Not by itself, but it's like the poison mechanic, you barely change it and suddenly its stupid OP.
I don't hate taming, but I did delete my tamer because it bores me.
