    Default And I thought I've seen it all

    Game time 11.43 PM, Nemrud enters Rank 2-5 WF. Good, he's rank 5.
    Checks Defiant tab to see who the enemy is. Interesting list. 5 Defiant clerics, 7 mages. A warrior and rogues as flavor.
    Change spec... 51 VK 15 Paladin for some healer harassing fun.

    ...

    XXX's Lightning Burst hits Nemrud critically for 4995 damage.
    XXX's Icicle hits Nemrud critically for 3900 damage.
    (One after other)

    ...

    That is on deep, 51 point VK, the ANTIMAGIC tank. Full Valor set, with enchants, T2 raid weapons, T2 raid accessories, of course PvP sigil, of course full with purple essences, of course with consumables & crystal.

    1001 Valor, 9687 Armor, 10300ish HP, +39 Air resist on sigil.

    Curious, Nemrud logs on his little Defiant toon and asks the mage his rank. It is R4.

    Righto, warriors work as intended. Need to power up mages & clerics tho.

    Everyone knows it's not wise to play defensive in PvP, but this was just a test. I also like harassing abilities of VKs on caster heavy groups, so no lecture please.

    Rift is a beautiful game, but with PvP focused games like GW2 and legends like SWTOR coming, this has to end. There's a limit and price of adding PvE content. PvP is free, and keeps people playing.

    I'll never go to GW2 and I'm quiet suspicious about SWTOR, but you're giving no room for people who can do basic math & want to PvP.

    PS. I have the screenshot but didn't want to bother the guy in the example, it's common anyways, he's not special.

    Don't VKs have a cleanse? Why didn't you cleanse when you saw that you had stacks of Electrified on you?

    Because, a complain-y thread makes way more sense when it says "I got hit for 5k!" rather than "I almost got hit for 5k, but I prevented it".

    FYI, Icicle has a 10s cooldown. Also, for Icicle to hit that hard, it has to hit you before your stacks of electrified are removed by the Lightning Burst. So I doubt it was "over and over".

    your elemental resistance is negated by healing.
    I think what happened was while the palyer was at most, rank 5, he more than likely had a large amount of SP.
    Rank is not an indication of capability from the opposing side.
    Alot of players will often carry PvE weapons and there are several cases of HK players coming in with their weaponry and accessories giving them a huge amount of power normally not vaiable to an r4.

    I thought VK was the anti blue bar soul and RB was the magic defense soul.

    He specced the ANTIMAGIC tank dude, that means he can just WASD around bouncing off spells for no damage and mages will fall over when they see him.

    Why would he have to actually use abilities? They're for people who can't switch souls to the ANTIMAGIC class and faceroll the warfront.

    There is actually no reason to assume that 51vk has the highest available passive magic damage mitigation.

    So


    yeah, dunno

    Oh, so RB doesnt have a better magic reduction than VK, whilst VK primary functions simply to ruin the lives of blue bars?

    I better alert the presses.

    I recommend reading Trion's definition of VK.

    Maker of the game, their definition. Not mine?

    C'mon dude.

    Cleanse.

    Hell, for 6 seconds after the cleanse he can't even re-stack Electrified on you since you're debuff immune. Then you can Rift Summon and then AoE silence.

    Then if he uses Ride the Wind away, you can range Unstable Reaction.

    Bad. Bad. Bad. Bad.

    By the way, there's no reason to go 51 VK. Just go 38VK/28RB. Now you can Stoneshield the Icicle heading your way if you decide that you still want to be bad and not cleanse.
