A friend and I tried to 2-man Crumena (when it was actually hard) and the friend ended up bugged somehow and could not attack. I had given her tons and tons of phoenix feathers and was carrying a large amount myself. So this ended up with me trying to magnum Crumena repeatedly (this is before we had any reasonable way to increase aiming speed) and her throwing pheonix feathers at me to rez me when necessary. Eventually (like, 3 hours later) that stupid dragon went down!
I feel like the people that want elf buffs don't understand just how strong Elves really are.
Honestly I agree with you. Even the "gear" argument only goes so far when you consider what a store-bought chainblade can accomplish in terms of damage. There are ways to boost archery without reforges, and it's really about stacking damage mulitpliers. (Reforges are only a piece of this puzzle.)
The only reason I want dual wielding is for "character" purposes, not because I think it'll magically make me stronger. (It won't.) For what it's worth I still sometimes pull out my Chef's Passion in areas where it's obviously outgunned just for the lulz, but ah well, there's a reason I stick to soloing.
The only thing I'd ever want for an elf update would be to dual wield knives. Where most other fantasy worlds have the elf archer pulling a pair of knives out when the action gets too close, that's not an option in mabinogi. Or at least not an option that allows for special upgrades, reforges, etc. (The one I'm thinking of doesn't have these options, I suspect, because otherwise it'd be a broken super-fast 2-handed weapon for giants and humans....)
It's like, okay, yeah, I get it, humans are supposed to be the dual wielders, but this always bugged me.
I feel a good compromise would be this: Allow an elf-only dual blade set, similar to chef's passion, but allow for reforges. Have it considered a "2-handed sword" by the game for the sake of special upgrades and skills. Easy peasy, and no giants or humans breaking final hit more than necessary.
