    Why are you so surprised that there are reavers everywhere?

    To me it reflects upon the player a little. Sure this person could be playing Reaver as it fits their playstyle, but flavor of the month is always at the back of my head too. just have to emphasize cleanses more frequently.

    This is kinda sad but unfortunately true.
    And most people tend to ignore (or simply completely oblivious to the facts) the fact that WARRIOR is indeed the highest single target dps FULLY RANGED soul in Rift.

    Not only WARRIORS are the best SPELLCASTERS in this stupid game, warriors are also THE MOST MOBILE SPELLCASTERS in this stupid game.

    Only ranged dps souls in this game that has comparable mobility to reaver is Ranger... which is an utter joke, with less ST dps than almost everything else, with really ****ty cleave, and has a dangerous/detrimental pet dependency, and also requires 33% faster pace/reaction time, with next to ZERO useful utilities, compare to Reaver Gods .

    Are you sure 6 months of live data was enough to make the appropriate changes?

    I'm not sure why a reaver should be the better choice for pvp than tempest. Reavers damage is only inferior because his cleave is so strong. But nothing a good AoE healer could not heal / dispell in time.

    Harder to heal and way more important is the "instant" burstoutput your role can deal. Thats why pyro is nearly never used in PvE (low substained dps) but so much loved/hated in PvP.

    So reaver is the go to spec if you want high (unimportant) numbers on the board. But if you want to contribute to a good win you should chose the tempest because it has the highest burstoutput in range. There is no single pockethealer that can heal a double arc wavelength burst.

    If it isn't Reaver it will be something else... remember the Physician being OP, and all the qq? Will true balance ever be achieved?

    And reaver brings -15% healing done and -15% healing received which is f$ù^*ing amazing in pvp. We will not talk about utilities, any melee would dream to have those tools...

    Why would a warrior use tempest when reaver exists as is, that's the good question

    Just the other day, I was playing a warfront, 10v10 and there was 40 reavers in the game.
    MORE REAVERS THAN THE ACTUAL NUMBER OF PLAYERS.
    This is getting ridiculous.

    ...

    Seriously.
    Yeah, there is a lot of reavers, because it's an FOTM build and all FOTM build are overplayed in every single game since games even exist.
    But don't tell me that "it's not rare that 80% of the players are warrior playing the same builds".

    What do you define by "it's not rare"?
    How often do you see 80% of the players in a 20 players game being reavers?
    Every other game?
    One game out of 4?
    One game out of 10000?

    Mainreason to use reaver over tempest in warfronts: healdebuff and more selfheals
    temp performs jusst fine also though

    Going melee however... going by the general warfront soloqueue, that **** takes a raidgear level just because melee is that disadvantaged w/o pockets especially these days and even more so because of reavers reducing that bit of healing the random healer might occasionally throw at you.

    ttk is riddiculously low these days, once in the ragey tabfocus it can be quite lethal so enlighten me how it would make anyone a better player to not go ranged/reaver.

    It's group pvp for ****s sake you're not alone and not facing a single person either, come on people use your ****ing brains.

    I honestly don't mind any nerfs to reaver at all though, sure it performs super smooth but it's a joke how easy it is to play, then again most warriorspecs are just junk in pvp unless you get to run as proper premade setup allowing to make them shine.
