    Default What would you run for 2s Arena? (What-if thread)

    @current patch

    Me personally:
    VK / Cleric (healer or dps) here.
    or 51 RB 15 champ/ MM double dps for trial purposes.
    Random aoe spec / bard.

    If you could LoS and change roles, that'd be sick.
    If you could rez, that'd be interesting. B-rez would be OP, though.

    No potions or consumables.


    What top combos would you expect to see at the top?
    Pyro / NB
    Cleric / NB
    MM / NB
    NB / NB
    TANK warrior / NB

    Ok Testercules aka: the only good thing on Laethys, tell me why Arena's were so good in Wow please.

    We had them in EQ2 and they were sooo good no one used them. We had battlegrounds/open world PvP, but arena's sat there and rotted.

    Why do we want Arena's in Rift?



    serious question. they were nothing but fail/boring in EQ2.

    Well it will be interesting if we have SIN/SIN vs SIN/SIN.

    2v2 = Cleric/Rogue (Undefeated and still need challenge!) (NB/Cleric)
    3v3 = Rogue/Cleric/Mage or Cleric dps (NB/heals/ 51 lock or Dom something) or (inquisiter dps cleric) that orrrrr gay comp (Double Cleric healer /Rogue)
    5v5 = Cleric/cleric/Rogue/Rogue/Mage or Cleric (sentwarden/ Overload spec /NB/ MM / Dom or chloro/lock Or inquister cleric)

    Preferably spyderpig

    Save this dribble for the thread that says there should be arenas and fight about it there.

    Thanks to all who made serious replies, and think about the fun scenarios that could play out. Maybe you guys have done these 2v2 matches before, and there's that one dude who says he's undefeated. GJ on actively creating a competition in world pvp, despite it only working vs the other faction.

    The truth is something people say they want to hear, but truly do not want to hear it.

    Pyro/Dom + whatever would probably be what you meet 90% of the time (and would be very boring)

    NB/RS is OP in 2v2 because you can't kite it (ports), control it (DR), blow it up (defensive coolies), or otherwise stop it from popping dps coolies and going to town on someone. It basically puts a hard timer on the fight.

    What do you pair with it? Healy cleric or pyro/dom.
