Not sure why you'd pay for a system when you can get an equally good one for free, but maybe I'm just stingy.
Both omni and svo are solid systems. They'd do better if they followed the tried and true herbal naming convention, but maybe Carmain at least will have an enlightened moment given his current transcendent state.
One of the symptoms of an approaching nervous breakdown is the belief that one's work is terribly important
I think more of what @Tasleus is trying to say is 'take the time to learn how to cure properly, the mechanics behind everything like herb balance, salve balance, etc.'. I'm of the mindset that that's the common trend among top-tier fighters, that they understand curing in and out, upside down and backwards.EDIT: Fixed the name of the person whose post I was referencing. Ironically, my apparently blind self mistook @Tasleus for @Tanris
Idelisa said:One thing that's especially nice about Omni (or so I'm told, as I've never used it) is that it encompasses all classes, so if you switch you don't have to worry about buying a new system like you do with SVO.
The way I see it, Omnipave would be better if you actually want to modify the system and risk screwing it up, so if you're not any form of coding wiz, Svo is good. It's also largely open and modifyable (except parts of the core of the system). And of course I like it because it's pretty and professional.
I wouldn't say either is technically better, but Vadi works a number of neat features and offers other addons into Svo. With pvp, it's largely the person that wins a fight rather than a system.
Because Vadi has paying customers, he'll always be regularly updating and improving his system. If you plan to play Achaea more than 4 hours a week, it's well worth the $20.
When I first started on Nexus (no coding knowledge at all) I made my own system to an extent, but things got tough when it came to limb curing. And it didn't account for herb balances and such the way a system should, and priorities weren't solid because I didn't understand curing/combat like I do now. So the Vadi-Nexus system was awesome. I regularly sparred and it served its purpose.
The nature of fighting is to keep on the offensive enough that you aren't always on the defensive, because that gives people the time to prep you uninterrupted. On the other hand, with a major curing system and doing nothing but diagnose every few hits, you should be able to avoid most locks.
tl;dr - get Svo. It's worth it and the only disadvantages will come from your own combat knowledge.
it's worth getting it as soon as you can, but I'd highly advise trying to build your own system FIRST.That way, you're not using a system without knowing what it's for.
