You are good in pvp if you are so skilled that you don't need to seek the damage bonuses of doing those actions.
Real pvp pros like me use:
Skull Lantern (left hand only, and no L2 of course) Straight Sword Hilt (Gotta optimize your build to show max skill) Xanthous Set (need to be easy to spot so your opponent won't get surprised by you) Tiny Being's Ring (dat negligible HP boost, only pros can survive with this) Binoculars w/Hawk Ring (Pros see their enemy coming from a mile away) Chameleon (this is how you get most of your kills)
If you equip weapons, you need to get gud you casul scum.
If there's any other pros on this board who have other good builds please share them, but no nubs allowed in this thread.
