    Default The State of Marksman

    I've noticed a lot of complaints about marksmen lately, with regard to their high dps and large amount of combat options. But what players are forgetting is the main reason Trion created marksman. Marksman was not designed to be high single target dps, as many claim. Instead, marksman was designed to be played while whilst watching pornography.

    Marksman has roughly zero amount of combat interaction thanks to the ability to macro their rotation into one button, thus making them the perfect character to play while downloading massive amounts of hardcore pornography. Simply target a player, hit "1", and minimize your window (whilst pressing tab every few seconds). Then sit back and enjoy some amazing girl on girl action.

    Because a marksman takes a few short seconds to kill a player, thanks to tab targeting, you can leisurely browse the erotic fruits of the internet, without much concern when you achieve a killing blow. After a minute, one reverts their attention back into RIFT, and usually you're still alive, topping the DPS charts and stepping over your foe's corpse. This is what makes PvP so pleasurable and convenient for rogues; the ability to simultaneously watch girls on one monitor and slay your mortal foes with the click of a single button. I doubt any other class has such an elegantly designed system, and I applaud Trion for their foresight in crafting a character that I can play while playing with myself.

    Movement speed buffs? Who needs it? I already move fast enough from my own buffs. Combat interactivity? Overrated. I'd much rather interact with the girls on my computer screen. Yes, a marksman was created for the sole purpose of dominating a fight while you stream the latest and greatest erotic entertainment directly to your computer. That is why marksmen have the high DPS, macro-able utility and easy rotation.

    In addition to slaughtering their foes, marksmen have several defensive options during combat that also allow them flexibility to download our favorite videos. Crossfire for example allows them a quick glimpse at our lovely ladies whilst melee are kept at bay. Indeed, Marksmen have cornered the market on the pornography during playtime of RIFT gameplay.

    It saddens me that many people do not take advantage of the main functionality of this soul and are in fact lobbying for lower DPS or less combat options, unnecessary frivolities that would only harm our right hand's efficiency. Instead, we should thank the fine programmers at Trion for crafting a character that is great to grind with while grinding your loins.

    (This is a joke. Props to anyone who knows where this is from though.)

    MM is pretty strong with all the utility and damage it has though. Particularly verses melee. Discuss.

    1 button MM is an atrocity and always will be.

    Problem is rogues are extremely overpowered because Rogues have a viable option as ranged dps in pvp like pyro, inquis vulcanist ect. Even tho Rogues is currently lowest single target parsing ranged spec in raid acorss all classes in the entire game already, but who give a **** about PvE right.

    Marksman is viable in PvP, this is not acceptable.

    So we need to fix that.

    Psht. Marks isn't *one* button... It's AT LEAST 4! (Single target knockback... frontal AE knock back.... 1 button macro and finisher macro. DERP!)
