    Default I tried PVP for the first time last night!

    What an amazing experience!

    First I did Port Scion as a 51 point rift, 15 point para, 0 point reaver as DPS and got hit by an 8K Fulminate through 150 Fire Resistance (to be honest, it was slightly over 8K) that one shot me from full to dead.

    So I decided to tank some flag running in Whitefall, and through void with 150 fire resistance again, specced into devourer, I got hit by a 15,139 Fulminate crit.

    I'll post the screenshot of my combat log later. I didn't see what buffs he had. I had 10,139 health and got 1 shot through the magic-damage mitigation tree!

    I crit for 3K with Deathblow. How does this work? How is this remotely fair in the slightest?

    15,139 crit! Really? REALLY?

    No, I have 0 valor. First time I tried.

    Well im glad your starting out PVP!

    unfortunatley for you valor is very important to defensive characters such as warrior and cleric, so you will need a good amount to be competitive in PVP.

    Rogues and mages can get away with not having much valor since they can still remove targets with their high burst.

    So to be able to truly enjoy PVP I have to suck at it, after grinding out 50 levels?

    Kewl! :/

    If you started earlier when everyone else had 0 valor you would be competitive, however lots of people have progressed, and it is the same as you dueling a raid equipped guy when your in fresh 50 greens.

    It doesnt take long to get to prestige rank 3, at that point you won't feel so helpless.

    Yep thats the way they have designed pvp in this game, there is no tricks to it, you suck until p6 and some classes still suck after p6.

    Every MMO does that. PVP is just a freaking grind. But there's no arenas here (I was a two time lock Glad in BC WoW), so it's just a grind.

    So roll a mage if you actually want it to be fun?

    That's all I'm drawing out of this. I could care less about Valor. I wanna 1-shot people.

    In Beta I used to do it with Titan's strike.

    What's soooooo rewarding about grinding WF's? Shouldn't it just be something to do that's fun on the side?

    I mean all you have is bragging rights, and it's not like Prestige levels indicate a damned thing other than chain running Warfronts. There's no tiered competition here.

    And even if there were, it'll be just like WoW. You get gear with more Valor on it, but you, at that point want more PVE gear that has less stam and more offensive or healing potential.

    Then crap gets nerfed out of concerns for PVP. This is so dumb.

    I know how to fix it though:

    Balance in PVP is homogenization. Think Modern Warfare 2. Same classes, mild customization.

    Force people into 3 souls based on what they want to play (healer, mdps, rdps, flag runner), make PVP gear on par with PVE gear, maybe with some extra stam. Dump Valor altogether.

    You can tweak your builds within those 3 souls.

    There you go, it's fixed. And those 3 souls should be completely new and only usable in PVP.

    I'm sorry, but 15k Fulminate through 150 fire resists sounds like ********.

    Unless said mage had full t3 gear with relic staff, red ball power up, full raid buffs, the mage was in ground of power, and you were debuffed, then...maybe. But really I can't see that... Ofc they could glitch witchstones. It still works on some servers I've heard.

    Only 8k with no valor?

    That's hardly impressive.
