    Default Riftwalk Has a 3.9 Second Effective Cooldown - With Video Evidence

    Trion,

    The Riftblade talent, Planar Blade, resets Rift Walk on every critical strike. This ability single-handedly gives Riftblades more mobility than any class in any MMO.

    I've looked over 3 videos uploaded to youtube in this past month, recorded the effective (in combat) cooldown of Riftwalk due to Planar Blade.

    It's 3.95 seconds. That is, it's a gap closer that's effectively reset every third GCD.

    This is completely imbalanced and makes running/kiting effectively impossible, as gap openers, such as a Pyromancer's Flicker, is on a 20 second cooldown.

    Below is a listing of videos and times.

    Mobility is extremely important in PVP. Giving one class/spec the ability to teleport around a map every 4 seconds needs to be reworked. It's not remotely balanced.

    Wow another nerf warrior post surprise surprise

    If you are so against teleporting why do you not complain about the rogue teleport as well?

    Not fighting for rogues or against warriors with this post, but

    Riftstalker sucks for pvp unless you are teleporting stones around.

    Why isn't the Sabodancer spec nerfed? There's no reason why any class should have the ability to stack charges on mobs without taking hate.

    This must be chanced, it's totally unbalanced.

    You're right, there's nothing wrong with one class being able to solo tank 8 people at a time, deal competitive dps, get out before they even die.

    Someone has a warrior.

    Sadly, I've seen this exact argument from a non-troll post before.

    Even 1 data point is conclusive evidence for a forum post. Most posts are just

    I play a Sabo, and could support this, if you increase our Assassin damage to make up for the loss (or whatever your other souls are), and also let us wear plate since now we have to spend more time in melee rather than in Sabo mode.

    It's interesting how players rarely call for a buff in their class - they always want others nerfed.

    And sadly, not only is it valid but it should be nerfed.

    Well I am a warrior no doubt but no pvp for me anymore. It was a means to an end. I'm rank 8 have my gear and I never played a warping warrior. I used zinn's build

    I hate warping warriors as much as anyone else. In fact I hate any advantage and soul has that becomes an imbalance, but as a warrior all we see are nerfs, nerfs lead to funnelling warriors into specs.
    The cries you shed let to warriors being this spec.

    When previous to 1.4 did you ever see a warrior (that knew what they were doing) have a shield in pvp?

    You, the other classes, brought this to the surface because of the nerfs, now it is time you dealt with it
    Just think if you didnt cry so much we all would still be beast champs (the instant port to respawn build)

    You can't sign your own proposal, it doesn't work like that.
