    it's been a while since i played (until recently) and i'm wondering if anything has changed with a couple skills...

    1 - when i played before, EVERYBODY had spellweaving (even if just a little bit) and now, it seems, people have abandoned it (in PvP). why?

    2 - can bushido still be used effectively with archery? do spells like evasion and confidence still benefit you without actually having "parry" skill?

    3 - what is the dex/stamina requirement for maximum healing speed and parry?

    1. Word of Death nerfed in PvP? PvP templates tend to be very faddish....So someone just rethought the paradigm on Spellweaving. Happens all the time. Right now Chivalry is considered over-powered in many circles, not too long ago it was laughed at! Play a template you are comfortable with.

    2. Yes on that first one. I think so on the second one.

    3. I forget.

    before, people didn't really put many points into spellweaving. they just used it for the low level spells that rez and heal you as well as the acrane circle for the buffs it gives.

    i sat for a good 10 minutes the other night trying to get people to sit on a circle with me without success... :(

    This is an old thread, but oh well. Healing timer is 4 seconds on yourself starting at 140 dexterity. Up to you if you would want to have more than that.

    As far as parry, can't parry with Archery.
