    It's bad/coward to heal with Estus (or Humanity) in the middle of Duels (not random invasions)?

    I don't mind if the thread is still relevant. I'd rather necrobumps than creating redundant or duplicate threads.

    But if this gets out of hand, it's borderline trolling... Look Skyward

    I don't mind if certain threads like this get bumped, the poll will always be relevant imo and you can still give your 2 cents if you like...

    Btw i once stumbled over a thread (in another forum) that got REALLY necrobumped, it was 3 YEARS OLD lol

    I don't heal in duels - unless my partner heals. I don't heal in randoms, unless: he BS me during a bow or buff, he lagstabs me, or he heals.

    If my opponent heals a lot during a battle and I lose, I still count that as a moral victory. I stole more hit points than he did.

    Hell, I usually don't even think of healing during a duel/invasion.

    I use only Replenishment and Sunlight Blade. The Usage of Estus is overkill, with it only being used IF the other duelist uses such advantages as well. If they choose not to use it, i will not use it either. Of course, once replenishment runs out, green blossom is in use, in which speed replaces regeneration.

    In my opinion, u paid for the game, do as u please with it. I didnt see any laws that came with the game that said I couldn't do something in it. Just how I look at it.

    I really get annoyed by it but generally people that need to flask end up dying anyways with an instant back to back backstab while they're doing it. Had a guy earlier flash 7 times in blighttown in the arena and I didn't heal once, he still died.

    If you are flat out duelling yes, imagine if the invader could Estus as well. That is one boring drawn out fight that takes forever and consists of people constantly just topping off their health. Those people I do backstab kill with prejudice. If I'm invading and they are obviously there not for PvP purposes I usually BC out anyway, but if I did fight them and they healed I wouldn't really care then. For duels though, yeah I'm going to punish the hell out of people who do it. I keep Talisman's on hand almost always anyway, so if they cannot defeat me without chugging they're already in trouble anyway.

    The way i feel is if your going to just run and spam heals dont bow to me so i can atleast have a heads up that ima need to whip out the hornest ring early when i duel people on my faith build i use miracls because they take so long to use so if you let me get that off then whats the real problem.

    If they are just progressing through the level and you invade then expect them to heal. That is all.

    Meh, my mantra is basically win by any means possible. When Im invading, I'll run off to enemies and use a humanity. If Im invaded, I'll hide and snipe with poison arrows and heal. If you bow, I'll not attack, but if you buff expect a hornet ring backstab.
