Eh, buffs can make people aggressive. Even so I've seen players simply swap the weapon out before the duration ends if it isn't serving them. This happens more often with invaders since they get a fresh stock of spells with each invasion. Still, even hosts/summons could keep a stack of 99 Gold Pine Resin around for PVP.

Thanks Duneman. That's the point I was trying to make. And Zyrax..well you're wrong. Most people are simple minded fools that do rely on one strategy since most battles in PvP seem to last about 8 seconds unless you run like a coward for 12 minutes.
