In my opinion, these skills are pretty lame.. and add nothing to a class's functionality ;/

Slow poison
Truly lame.. temporarily stops the HP drain from poison but not the DEF drop, while poison is easily cured by a green herb, panacea, royal jelly or a green pot.. all which are cheap.

Talkie Box
Adds nothing to the functionality of a sniper

Signum Crisis
Waste of skill points, I can't really see a use for dropping a demon/undead monsters def because that's just too much trouble for leveling.. and out of the question for MvPing

Mana Recharge
Because it needs mace mastery level 10, lol wut.

Gravitational Field
If only grav field did not prevent you from moving, this skill could arguably be 'decent' right now its a pretty stupid skill and I can't seem to find a use for it (nothing that heavens drive can fix)

Magical bullet
Waste of coins, does bad damage, ghost property.. can't find a use for this

edit:
Adaption to Circumstances
It's a requirement for encore > musical lesson but if it wasn't this skill would be really useless.


So yea, if anyone else thinks a skill is pretty bad and adds nothing to the functionality of a class, postt.

Sarin

Brandish Spear, Spear Stab: Two skills that are both as slow or slower than BB and dont outperform it in damage. Where's the purpose?
Auto Counter: If it had worked against skills, it would be great. But this way, it's just lame.

Napalm Beat: ehh, what's that supposed to be except prerequisite to make ghost spell line too long?

fluidin

Am I allowed to refute some suggestions?

Spear Stab has a purpose: knockback.
Grav Field: The only way for a Wiz to break emp.

And for more useless skills:

Priest, Cure: Lolwut. Like you have the time to use it in heated situations.
Wiz, Frost Nova: There are better alternatives, wastes points.

XileRo is the only HR I know that has a reasonable PvP system. I did watch the RWC like you said, all I see is people spamming the room like every other gang fight there is in RO.

Relics

Yeah, nova is pretty sucky, storm gust > that all the way

and why would wizzies break emps anyway xd.

To add to the list;

Cleaner & Flag Graffiti - 2 rogue skills that I've never seen working, ever. (I think they might've been taken out now)

A Whistle - A bard song that raises a bit of flee & perfect dodge.  It's not TOO bad, but compared to the other more useful bard songs, hardly anyone puts points into this one.

Beg to differ about skid trap, its useful for pose lagging priests/champs/anything that pneumas/fogs with ankle snare + skid..

and shower + skid on yourself is .. kind of awesome.


I thought flag graffiti was still going to be implemented.., though it's a dumb skill.

Xarale

Ah crap, forgot about using it with arrow shower to push people out of pneuma.  Alright, removing it from my list.

Sanin

Beast's Bane and Hunter's Spirit.

What exactly were they thinking?  f*** yeah I'm gonna hunt bugs and puppies using Strength!

There's also a Crusader's Spear Quicken, but I think the mileage may vary from person to person.  I just find it a bit moot since a majority of their skills rely on shields.
I must accept that Super-Gluing valuable coins to the sidewalk and then watching events from a nearby café is not proper demonic activity.

Sarin

Beast strafing isn't so useless, especially if you play server with resetter (so 99% of today's privates), well made linked Sniper can be deadly for some MvPs.
I see no point in spear quicken too. If I want bashspam with 2H weapon, I'd take LK.

I'd also say Sphere Mine is useless, I actually never seen it used. Ki Explosion shares the same status.

Luna~

Adaption to Circumstances is useful. Cancels songs. o.O If you don't know how to do a knife switch.

wireless

Plant cultivation level 2. Random plant, uses stem and has 50% chance to fail  :-\
Also, sphere mine isn't that useless, I've seen many alches mob and then kill with marine sphere.

Orange

Counter- used it to kill some increase soils... once

aww ye
:3

For the lulz, of course.

And for some of those points:
Spear Quicken (one of the best ways for Crusaders to level now)

NeakKrama

Phantasmic Arrow-... I think the name is tryin to overcompensate for something.

Sense- Online database makes this skill obsolete pretty much.

Meh.. switching violins/whips is nowadays done by every clown/gypsy.. adaption is really unneeded since you can always lrn2knifeswitch/violin/whip

Talking about links, champion link is pretty useless
