    Default Class populations after 1.3

    My guess is if proposed changes go through, we'll see on average:

    PVP
    50% cleric
    30% rogue
    15% mage
    5% warrior

    PVE
    50% rogue
    35% cleric
    10% mage
    5% warrior

    Low level alts:
    75% cleric
    20% rogue
    5% warrior/mage with a few outliers.

    true / false?

    Isn't the 5% warrior a bit too optimistic?

    what exactly is dramatic about all warrior dps specs parsing lower then they do on live? or increasing valor defense across the board while reducing warriors damage, and healing in pvp remaining largely untouched?

    or the fact that majority of concerns (non horrible ones) expressed by the community went largely unanswered? ooh paragon dps gets a buff that puts it lower then what i dps now.

    With the changes are now, I'll be rerolling rogue.

    My warrior will be collecting dust because the class will be pretty much useless other than the occasional need for a tank.

    The part where you are over-estimating all changes, and the fact that the changes haven't happened yet.

    Post constructively on the 1.3 Discussion forum instead of crying on this one.

    Switch "mage" with "warrior" and I'm ok with this.

    I spew no drama. You can view this however you want, but there WILL be a mass reroll, there is every patch. good luck convincing the rest of the rifters that this wont happen.

    Also from a quick glance at this thread you've brought more anti-drama drama with you than anyone else here.

    Eradicate and much of the other 1.2 rogue buffs didn't go into the PTS patch notes until right before 1.2 went live. There's still plenty of time for Trion to add buffs to warriors before 1.3 comes out.

    And as for the valor changes. I don't like them but whatever. People were screaming about the CC changes and how it was going to ruin PVP in 1.2 but it turned out to not be a big deal at all, at least not from my perspective.

    What would make you think that people will stop doing PvP just because they are ineffective at it?

    I mean, a single match in a weekend-afternoon pickup PvP team should be enough to dispel you of that notion permanently.

    My guess for PvP population in the next patch:
    - Still 50%+ stealth spec rogues who end the match with <25k damage done and >10 complaints that no one is healing them
