    Champs/Sabs "We're USELESS just delete the calling"
    Mages "HA! payback time, eat it ******"
    group "Clerics and Pyros are out of control. Pyros kill me before I can do anything to them, even if I could they're CC immune. Clerics can life forever 4v1. Nerf them Trion or I quit/reroll!"
    Pyros "omg QQ more noobs, you need to adapt. I wear cloth and am really squishy, he cant kill you if he's just healing. You need to use, you know, TEAMWORK to lock us down and kill us. Ever heard of purge? lol nubs. And besides, if you nerf us pyros then nobody can kill the clerics, do you really want invincible clerics?"
    Clerics "dont bring me into this"

    That cleric sounds like a champ (not a champion)!

    Also liked the lack of warriors in patch 1.2!

    I noticed fewer warriors as well... oddly enough I'm better off in 1.2 as a warrior then I was in 1.1... cc management is less of an issue for me, than getting one shot via mage FPS skills.

    Ah, I'm not sure you all realize this but MM buff stripping is a blessing in disguise. That means they aren't bursting you down while you spam the same heals over and over trying to stay alive.

    Here's a thought, how about a debuff removed from opponent and a debuff removed from the Marksman?

    That sounds like a nerf. Right?

    the only consistent thing about PvP balance in Rift, is it's clear Trion has NO IDEA what they are doing.

    I played chloro thru all of this, then in 1.2 they decided chloros shouldn't even exist apparently in pvp. Ive paid enough money already to this game, and the only thing that has held true, is that Trion is clueless.

    Its better now than its ever been balance-wise

    My consolations for your difficulties in the time being, but we all know it will get fixed soon.

    If you really can't deal with the current situation, just leave for a few weeks and come back when its all better.

    So true. Since launch, all Clerics have asked for is their bugs to be fixed. What most people on the forums never understood was that *most* of the complaints about Clerics were either (A) people's delusions that all Clerics are heal/tank/DPS builds in ONE role, or (B) the result of an actual game bug (Blessing of the Martyr triggering off all damage).

    Honestly, Clerics have been well balanced since launch, and at most just needed their bugs fixed and some of their underperforming spells/skills tweaked. There's a reason why they've never gotten a major class overhaul (outside of the armor tweaks in Inquisitor), and that it because they basically do their job, do it well, and aren't nearly as OP as the screaming masses make them out to be.

    When I played a Cleric, I was never invincible. I was built to be hard as hell to kill, and I paid for it in unfocused healing and below-average DPS. Now that I've moved to a Rogue* I see these mighty Clerics, and I understand why they're so hard to fight, and it does not bother me. As a Nightblade I can debuff a Cleric's heals, but I'm still fighting a chain wearing, self-healing defensive target (who probably detaunted me as soon as I came out of Stealth). I can get solo kills if I'm lucky, and that is how it should be. Against a Cleric of equal skill I don't honestly expect to win. But if I can pressure him into playing defensive he's not healing his team, so I'm still reducing his ability to help out, and that's still a win for me.

    The problem with patches is 25% actual problems created by the patch, and 75% player overreaction and hyperbole.



    * For the record I started my Rogue *after* 1.1, and long before 1.2 was even announced. And I stopped playing my Cleric shortly after I hit PvP R3, so I never built one of those BotM exploiting builds.
