    Default Welfare favor bonus, it was nice to know you

    Well sucks to be you if you haven't hit r7-r8 during the massive bonus.


    Let the grind to r8 begin, it will be a slow and painful one. luhlz..

    escalation bonus is a separate bonus. i'm talking about the patch bonus that was 1.4.... they're turning that off.


    what you saw this weekend was a result of the bonus favor +escalation favor aka 4x.

    aye, I didn't hit p7 but with the major kick-off of extra favor am like 90k favor away from all p7 items and all 3 unseen honored items. Though have about 130k prest. till p7. Just about perfect

    Also though, the recent, non-weekend bonus had nothing to do with prest., so you still leveled the same rank wise, the only faster leveling sessions were the new whitefall which ya, will be back.

    Yar though, 4x favor in whitefall was nuts.

    10k favor on the weekly turn in lol. It was fun while it lasted.

    They could have at least gone a till wed, a full week.
    The reality is pvp set 1/2 are outdated, this added favor just gets you past that gear...

    I skipped most of it and played 1 night during the entire bonus. There's no rush while everyone is suffering at the top, and if Trion pulls off a miracle to keep me around past october then it will include the proper incentives and queuing at 50 to participate fresh, or I'll just never bother with how broken it is and stick to alts till the account runs out.

    Your name cracks me up dude. My HS girlfriend and I lost our virginity together in a friend's basement, while he was out making a beer run.

    So does that make me xbasementvirgin?

    Yet PvP is fun and balanced from 10-39. If they let us turn off XP they would keep more customers than the 50 meat grinder chews up.

    This. Rank 7-8 will come just as fast as it was this past weekend. I think the favor bonus was kinda for people who were going to complain about the new gear upgrade system and say they had to grind theirs. Future players will have missed out on the favor bonus days.

    Trion will do the PvP bonus weekends again. I can't imagine why they wouldn't do so honestly.

    The real bottleneck is Trion needs "special" instances for all the warfronts (or just brand new ones) to do in a rotation every weekend. Maybe in a few...

    That being said, don't burn yourself out on grinding because even if you do make R8 (with all the gear and all maxed out marks), you'll just end up on your alt or /quit.

    1.4 Bonus Favor was pretty awesome; no more "Oh boy I'm R6, time to grind 500K more favor to get the gear now" crap. Sad to see it go, but at least we'll still have bonus weekends.

    Escalation WFs will happen each weekend.

    Favormania 2011 is over though.

    Those that hit R7, got close to R8 or even hit R8...

    ...they'll be waiting a wee while before anybody else gets there...

    ...and roflstomping them in the process.
