The rules dont change much :P and it's pretty simple to remember. Anyone that doesn't duel because of the "rules" is silly :P

I really wish you didnt put in "no max res items for ES sorcs" cause i use Fort DS alot during duels so i have a more balanced survivability. oddly enough, im surprised more people dont use forts because its proven to be really useful for me as a substitute for COH, Enigma, and ormus.
