    My first PVP Fishing contest was pure luck and it got me thinking. I'm level 113 and the majority of deaths were from archers rapid fire and I was dead before the reel in animation was finished.

    What if there was a fishing rod artifact or jewel/gem that offered a shield effect while fishing?
    Or a fishing rod that was also a weapon as someone suggested.

    Even when I wasn't instantly killed by ranged by the time I had my weapon out I had lost most of my health.

    I'm not complaining about this style of PVP I just think it would be nice to have some kind of chance to stay alive a little bit longer.

    On a side note: The event was as good as SotA will ever be in the PvP side of things.

    So, it wasn't only your fights that ended within a "reel animation" time-frame. It's very rare that any fight will last for more than 3 seconds when higher level players are involved.

    The game is clearly not designed for PvP, so there are a bunch of meta-style builds that will trump over the regular ones.

    IMHO there's no antidote to it, if they try to make PvP great they're either ruining PvE or reworking the whole combat system from scratch, gear and mobs included.

    That being said, yeah watching someone kill you while your char patiently puts the fishing pole away is frustrating.

    Oh, and sorry for the arrows :rolleyes:

    Well some took more than 3 seconds. A bit longer if I was moving around. I'm sure if I was using some kind of buff shield I could survive even longer. And I honestly don't have anything against the current state of PVP because I don't really play that style.

    But Imagine if there was a 100% block chance that only happened while having rod out. That would make sniping fishers less attractive :)
