    Default Nerf mages

    Mages need about a 25% damage reduction in PvP. Also split personalities needs a 10 min CD and last half as long. Squirrel should only be cast once every 30 seconds. Also, they need their armor reduced by about 20%. It's hard to "penetrate" it.

    Do these things, and PvP should finally be balanced.

    I play a mage, and I agree with you on split personalities & squirrel. Damage reduction 25% seems a bit harsh but needs a serious adjustment.

    I also agree instant mage skills are the core reason why Rift PvP is so bad. If I can CC-DPS-CC-DPS-CC-DPS & kill a melee or healer who spent months of grinding to reach R8 with my crafted-geared newbie mage, it's just wrong in every way.

    Thought you were serious until I saw you were a cleric.
    Mages do need a buff.

    Squirrel needs to be looked at it is nearly spamcandy.Otherwise I think they are fine. Clerics need a small healing nerf as well. Warriors need to be buffed and rogues are fine.

    Ugh, another..."The grass is greener on the other side, please burn their lawn!" post. If you're having issues against a mage using squirrels and splits you're most likely undergeared or in the wrong build (or both). If you are geared and in the right build then I'm sorry to inform you, that mage is a better player than you.

    Perhaps from now on, when people come whining for a nerf to some build they should list:
    1) gear
    2) valor
    3) build
    3.5) rank (i don't consider this as important as some people forgo the pvp gear for 4hk)

    This way, we can laugh at you if you're a BM warrior trying to take down a pyro/dom (or something like that) and direct you to warrior forums to ask for some much needed advice on wtf you're doing wrong.
    But at least we can get married now!
