    Default Prestiging As you level up

    Surely somebody has thought of the idea that you can rank up in prestige before you hit level 50. That way people that hit 50 could probably already be p4 or p5.

    BTW here is my mage video :P

    The whole point of prestige is to have a time sink at level 50. If you already went half way through it getting to 50 in the first place it would defeat the purpose. Plus, since you get less Favor at lower lvls and need each piece from lower ranks to get the upgrade...you'd actually be in a bigger whole since you'd be fighting in ranked WF's without the gear, and getting facerolled. Just saying lol.

    No, because I think you get more XP in the lower levels to account for the fact that you are leveling. Once you hit 50, you get less XP (compared to PA) and you accumulate Prestige. It is just like you can't get Marks in PvE until you hit 50, you shouldn't get Prestige until 50.

    It would be nice to be able to.

    My 40 warrior would be P4 already.

    Imo and I know many do not share the same opinion...

    Wf's should have all normalized stats and balanced accordingly. Pve content should be balanced through gear. world pvp is under pve rules with some 50v50 open instance siege/defend on going battle with some prestige/favor buff for the winning side.

    17K is enough for 10.625 marks, at P4 you need the previous piece of gear normally in the 50K favor range, plus 20+ marks...a grand total of over 370K favor for a Single piece of gear. I'm not trying to down play the achievement, but it would really cripple you at lvl 50 PvP by being a high rank with low gear.
