    Default PVP Class advice

    Hi Guys

    i just moved to RIFT after playing wow for many years. I am a pvper and would like some advice one what would be good to try.

    I want something that is a bit easy to start with so I can get to know the game then I will prob specialise later?

    What would you guys recommend for PVP class's?

    You have asked this question when lots of people are angry at 1.3 notes.
    You will get some interesting replies but the majority won't be for your benefit they will be from people venting their anger.
    But you might get some honest answers who knows.

    If you want to heal, Cleric
    If you want to melle dps, Warrior
    If you want to range dps, Mage
    If you want to stealth/be annoying, Rogue

    I personally play a Cleric, and a Mage. They both currently are very fun to play in PUG PVP.

    The Cleric currently has a lot of survivability. When playing against Pug groups you can have about half the team beating on you, and you won't die- its hilarious. They are also amazing 1v1. Here is a nice recent R6 cleric thread from the Cleric forums talking about various builds, and how he solos every class in the game.

    I also currently play a Pyro Mage, and the burst damage is very fun- as well as the AOE. It is quite easy to top the charts in both damage done and killing blows.

    The ranged rogues (though I haven't played) are also chart toppers.

    I personally would not want to play a warrior, unless I had a friend who was a healer. In PvP I tend to just ignore the pets and the warriors. On my Mage I will throw up one of my shields, and blink away. I tend to just let the healers heal through their damage. If they follow me out of their healing range, and I am still in mine I will burn them down, others wise I just ignore.

    Cleric, when 1.3 is out. You will feel like a Raid Boss OP.

    First off wipe anything from pvp in wow out of your mind. Now that your mind is clear of that. Roll what you think you would want to play. I would say play it until around 19 or so do some warfronts pvp etc.. Then make what you think you would want next. Unless you like the first choice just run with it. Gotta say cleric does it all and is very fun. MDPS,RDPS,AOEDPS,Healer, tank, you name it. Only thing a cleric can't do is stealth.
