I also agree that it should stay away. Or be completely revamped to rather increase Stats / Skills / Spells.Arcane Jewelry made any Guard towers in holdings completely useless.
i doubt (and hope) they will ever come back, or they would have to redesign/eliminate completely the raw magic school and related title.Even now they already have subpar dmg because there is no protection against it....put back the old 10 arcane protections from rings and you have a totally useless school (if, on the contrary you increase the damage of its spells to compensate, you have an overpowered school that will do more damage than every other one unless you specifically have the rings against it)
They want to be 100% safe in holdings and never have a pvp encounter in a pvp game. Pretty much what I gather from reading these guys posts across multiple threads.
Both of you are almost saying melee protecitons and magic protections from dragon armor makes its useless to damage someone wearing high end gear? everything in this game costs materials to craft and its full loot full drop. Jewelry crafting needs to be ingame and also arcane protections gear needs to be part of the game too.
Arcane protection is absolutely a necessity if they want drama / conflict. I can't solo raid hamlets or cities AT ALL. I killed a guy afk harvesting a grove today and spent more time trying to stat up than I did killing him. It's insanity. They say they aren't implementing things because there isn't enough drama stirred up but hello, we can't even do clan warfare because people are 100% safe inside their cities at the moment.
