I’m well aware of what food combos were used and how trivial it made PvE. PvE still isn’t difficult to this day.
1v1 sure whoever had the most heals won most of the time but skill easily still came into play.
In large scale battles 5v5+ people still died incredibly fast.
Take a look at certain streamers vods in pvp. People die so fast now and its not even really skill if you survive being focused its just luck. Just watch SIrdavewolfs pvp training vids from Dogs of the Desert. People die so fast and thats with Ambrosia. Now imagine without. PvP will become a complete joke.
