You're saying emperium purpose but why about half of skills are for PvM only. Seriously Masteries and weaponry research? improve dodge when woe you got almost 0 flee? You will kill a RG with mammonite? Don't ever think make SN to kill someone dude, they mainly just for slave/support or debuff. Quagmire still used to slow enemies
I beg to differ. I can certainly see that you hardly know much about eSNs these days. Well, depends if you're on Valk or what.
However, to a certain degree, I do agree with you. As for the skills, yes, majority of the skills available - aside from cast skills, they suck for Melee builds.
To let you know, I main a Super Novice and I have in fact killed several people in PvP and WoE. Ofcourse, killing 1st and 2nd Classes is nothing of a big feat. Killing Trans is still somewhat decent. But I do not mean to limit to them. I have killed 3rd Classes. They may have not been 150, but nonetheless, I have killed them. RK, GX, Sorc and even Warlock. Mind you, one of the GX and the Warlock was a 150.
Having Frost Nova, is a life saver. Majority of the people, don't really wear Frozen armor in PvP at times, so this helps a lot.
Killing technique lies in high aspd and Mamonite. It's best to be quick and cast Frost Nova after each mamonite. With the help of a kvm mace, you also have a chance of stunning the opponent, again, giving you an advantage. However, this doesn't always work on everyone.
Now I must say, killing an RG is not quite possible. Mainly because of their reflect and huge SP pool. Also, just to note: I do not own any god equips, mvp cards or high tier cards(I mean cards 50m+, heck even 10m!). Yes, I'm a noob.
And Lemonade has given a good summary... near enough.
