Hathen, you're slightly mistaken. It's not the resetting that usually pisses people off, no one bothers doing that. It's the twats who start the fights earlier than the shouts mention for an S rank just because they're bored and trolling. I mean, you waited 45 second for people already, why not wait the rest of the damn minute? Furthermore, holmgang probably won't bind the mark anyway, it rarely works on bosses and none of the b ranks are susceptible to stuns (which is usually how I know if they're bindable) so yeah. I'm better off doing tomahawk->unchained->heavy swing->internal release->skull sunder->berserk-> butcher's block and just maintaining hate....EXCEPT I'm way undergeared compared to the masses of hunt spammers and can't outpull people anymore.
Which is another serious misstep on SE's part. I like being able to upgrade my gear through this, I don't think being able to max out from i100 to i110 in a week is something that should be doable. However as a few of our LS buddies can tell you, they managed to nearly cap ilevel already in just 2 short weeks....from generally under i100 levels.
