    I have a 4/6 chiv macer. Designed him for PvP with the following template:

    120 Macing
    120 Parry
    120 Resist
    100 Tactics
    100 Anatomy
    90 Healing
    70 Chivalry

    Sounds like my experience was similar to yours: I always managed to get my butt handed to me playing this toon. totally sucked. However, I recently made an adjustment to his template that makes him much more viable. I haven't done field PvPed with him, just dueled - and he's a tough toon to beat in a duel. He now looks like this:

    120 Macing
    120 Parry
    120 Tactics
    100 Anatomy
    95 Healing
    90 Weaving
    75 Chivalry

    With a casting cap of 4/6, weaving has become a perfect compliment to this template. Soon as the duel starts, gift of renewal and/or attunement. When fighting a mage, hit essence of wind to screw with casting speed. Of course, unless your opponent has a whirlwind weapon equipped, pixies can help you finish the job pretty quick. A couple AIs followed by repeated poisoning from pixies is a dirty combination.

    Like I say, I haven't used this toon for PvP, just for dueling. He's suit isn't really PvP material, either, but it's workable for a player on a budget:

    Artifacts
    Spirit of the Totem
    RBC
    Jackal's Collar
    Crimson Cincture
    Conjurer's Trinket
    Quiver of Infinity
    Cloak of Death

    Runic/Imbued
    Gloves: 7 lmc, 2 mr, _____
    Arms: 7 lmc, 2 mr, _____
    Legs: 7 lmc, 2 mr, _____
    Shield: 11 hci, 11 dci, 1 fc
    Ring: 1/3, 15 dci, 6 hci, 5 dex (490 intensity)
    Bracelet: 1/3, 11 dci, 25 di, 4 lmc (495 intensity...prepare to lose some frags)

    Weapons
    Wax Axe: 40 di, 30 ssi, 1 fc, 30 hld, 30 hl (492 intensity)
    Diamond Mace: 40 di, 30 ssi, 1 fc, 30 hld, 30 hl (492 intensity)

    Total Mods, Suit and Weapons

    I run a total of 5 pvp templates best being my bushy dexxor then fencer archer then necro mage then either one dread archer or pally macer i would love to hear some stories of pally macers beating the crap out of people but its just hasnt been heard of. currently i am in factions and have acces to some higher end gear due to that fact but the suit could be totally reworked but even still my bush dexxor kicked butt without his god suit on it just made him even better so before i go spending a couple mil on a pally macer suit i would like to see some results.my template looks like this

    120 mace
    120 tactics
    120 parry
    120 resist
    105 chiv
    90 heal
    90 anatomy

    Casting cap for weaving is 4/6. Reason I went 90 is because this allows me to cast every spell except wildfire and WOD without fail.

    I'll def. take you up on your dueling offer. I'm a poor trammy. Need to get better.

    Ninjitsu also utilizes 4/6 casting. (Really fast Mirror Images)
