    Default world pvp in a nutshell

    1.) i see rogue, i attack rogue, rogue disappears, i never see rogue again
    2.) i DONT see rogue, i pull x amount of mobs, now i see rogue
    3.) entire raid of defiant(or gaurdian) roll on me and all 20 decide to blow every cooldown on me


    number 1 happens quite often, what is it about rogues that make them avoid pvp?

    It only makes sense for a Rogue to slip away if you catch him off guard. When caught out of stealth, we're basically squishy warriors.

    As to not opening on you after that, however, I have no idea.

    This made me laugh - and accounts for 99% of my 'world pvp' experience.
    I think I would feel unfulfilled if my kill was someone fighting four mobs at 15% health, but I suppose it's not about honor now is it? Such noble hunters.

    You have to wait until they are done before you get credit. Best to to get warriors and clerics is after a big pull. If I wanted to run around and fight everyone straight up the I would have rolled a warrior.

    i once saw a warrior affiliated with a large pvp guild fighting 3 mobs, i waited in stealth while he killed them and healed up. Then I switched spec to a non assassin lol spec and started a fair fight with him. Before we killed each other, a raid of guardians came and rolled me

    I play a rogue and I agree.

    More and more reason for keeps and PVP zones.

    It makes no sense... why don't we have a pvp zone... I do feel bad for everyone who doesn't have stealth.

    I am also only rank 2 and play nightblade/MM combo so only 30 secs of stealth.

    would love to see a real pvp match. not instanced.. lol why, why! (down to knees praying)

    lol I'm really not that upset, but when you see someone slamming their head in a wall over and over, you generally don't think, make sure to slightly tilt your chin! you say, "stop Fing slamming your head!... its loud"

    So you get it! It's just like hunting - You don't see a hunter run up to a deer before trying to shoot it in the face do you? No. They wait in silence and snipe them from afar when they least expect it. Likewise, if I'm stealthed up and see someone flagged(I'm on a PvE shard) and they're fighting a bunch of mobs, I'll wait for the most opportune time before wrecking their ****.

    Isn't that exactly what you are doing though.. Running up to the deer before trying to shoot(stab) it in its face..

    Hunters have to use their environment to stealth around.. in Rift rogues do not..

    Very poor analogy.. As it is the range to see stealth is WAY too small & the survival aspects of it are unmatched..

    The title of this thread should be changed to "Bad Rogues are bad" or "Bad Rogues need mobs to complete their daily kill quest"
    Even free cost too much now

    How bout a Huge Buff that gives +dmg and take -dmg that stacks with amount of players attacking said player cannot be used in WF or Raids only procs when being Zerged. It would be cool to turn the tables on entire raids :] 1vs20 is bad PvP and at rifts current state the 20 player raid is rewarded for this
