But what if you attack a soldier with over 1100 tactics? How can you bypass that? You can't, even you if combine clothes to get the most appearance and let's say you did bypass it , you lose tons of aim/dodge , for a soldier you need a resistance set , and yes you don't really care about appearance because standing up so you can get hit actually increases your aim so in this case I will agree with @WhyN0t , appearance is useless here , having the most aim possible with a fair amount of t/s should be the only thing you should focus on. This applies not only for soldiers.Being number 1 I have hit everyone but definitely not focused on people in work gear. These days I only duel people that have been bad and duelled alliance/town. These are people in proper gear. I have tried all forms of duelling and most of them probably resistance, I have full Harvester and Curling and all the rest.
Your argument is that when you are resist dueller you dont want any appearance, because your aim is high enough. Please try resist dueller without appearance and see how it goes. You will not win against anyone who has dodge/tactics combo. You won't hit one time. The duels will be 400 them, 0 you. I know this, I have tried this. I speak from experience.
Once again you make statements about me that could seen like insults. Please be a grown-up. I am saying in my extensive experience of duelling, your argument is not correct. No need to attack me.
These days since skills are so high you can't hit only from aim against skilled duellers. You need appearance too. Doesn't matter if you are dodge or resistance skilled. To me it doesnt make sense playing resist if you can't hit. But you obviously do.
