Most priests in undes didnt have their 70 skill unlocked. I believe we were only with 2 or 3 and I was barely pking since I wasnt even 80 (never hitted it anyway). So saying every single priest had party cure is simply untrue. Hemileai for one didnt have his skill unlocked for a very long time, as well as the other incredible priest.
About scroll PK. We barely pked on scrolls (only sw pots). Only time it was mandatory to scroll was in wars (but hey if you dont scroll in wars, when you ever scroll?).
About the rest, you make some points thats for sure. We outleveled people, but there were actually only a couple who outleveled veryone, most of us hitted 80 like 10 days after the hardcore levelers.
Anyhow my input, go continue
