    7 weeks to reach P36. Add another week to reach P40 and it comes out to about 2 months.

    Yeah, sounds about right. I can't tell if you're being facetious or serious though. 2 months is a lot of time spent being significantly behind the gear curve while facing others who are at the top.

    And what's wrong with that?

    It's still a terrible PvP spec compared to Marksman, though.

    Technically nothing. I'm not going to attempt to argue that MMOs should function more like FPS.

    I don't think it's ideal for retaining players though. Obviously players need a lengthy goal to reach, so that they'll want to keep playing.

    The hard part is finding a balance between "huge gear gap" and "here's your gear in the mail for reaching level 50." I still think the PvP gear/rank progression could use some fine tuning, but it's undeniably worlds better than it once was.

    My first (old school) rank 8 took 5 weeks.

    I now have 1 x r40, 2 x r34, 1 x r13.

    It's much easier now, to rank up, get gear, and be competitive. IN MY OPINION.

    Sure the matched warfronts are some times roflworthy, but more often than not they are matched.
    You don't have to wait any more to be a certain rank for most of the PvP gear, just have the faction.

    I don't understand the carry on about it taking so long. Exactly how quickly do people expect to be geared/ranked up?
    I'm still convinced a lot of warfront whiners only put themselves through this agony for the gear. If you don't enjoy warfronts, please, don't zone in.

    Yes I have a life. What I don't have, is any interest in the instances or raiding.

    *le gasp*
    You mean it doesn't take two and a half years of being waterboarded 24/7 while the R40s defecate all over your most prized possessions, downtalking your hopes and dreams as they squirt lemon into your pried open eyes?

    The forums has it all wrong! Shocker.

    since my posts don't stick out to you about it taking months, maybe someone's of more value will:

    How much time does that take? Months, no way around it. Grind PvP to get your gear, grind PvP rifts for your other gear. Raid for your relics!

    Some system huh. It does make me sad that skill has almost no role in PvP.

    Maybe it takes months, but you were totally wrong about the waterboarding.

    Yeah, I don't do premades. The queues are way too long, and facerolling a bunch of undergeared nobodies doesn't really appeal to me

    What I usually like to do is duo queues, that way you still get to have the enjoyment of PvPing with a friend, and there's still a challenge since there's only two of you.
