    Default What can I expect after a 6+ month Hiatus

    Hello.

    It has been quite a while since I have logged into rift. After the horror story that is SWTOR pvp, I went back to WoW for about a week...

    Now I am thinking about giving rift a run for 14.99 worth.

    I play a warrior, and when I left, I had full r8 gear.

    Aside from the pve vs pvp gear classic debate, how will i fare gearwise in pvp now?

    Is there r9+ ect? Are rogs/mages still out of control? (dont troll too much)

    Basically, I am wondering if it is worth it to come back to (at the time) a very well geared character to enjoy some pvp.

    Thanks!

    Oh dude you're screwed, there's 40 ranks now! Lots of stuff happens when you are gone.



































    You pretty much still have the best gear, old r8 = rank 38 1/2. Only thing rank 40 has is a synergy crystal with a slight bump of the old stats.

    I dislike pvp in general, but there are some exciting things coming soon for you pvp'rs. On pts they are testing 3 faction pvp (not sure what it exactly entails) you can check the pvp and pts forums for that.

    The r8gear is currently the best pvp'rs have. Although if memory serves me, you quit before they remade the pvp ranks.. It now caps at 40. (r8 people got rank 30 aomething to start) ... And now there are no pvp souls, just a pvp PA tree. (you get pa levels from ranking up though)

    Came back at a great time in PvP!

    We're just about to test out our brand new Conquest gameplay - choose one of three new factions and engage in a cross-shard battle that captures the essence of open-world PvP. You can earn rewards that boost your team in battle or take personal buffs with you - no matter what you do!
    Details: http://community.riftgame.com/en/201...-thursday-517/

    We'll also be rolling out Prestige Ranks 41-50, with all-new PvP Weapons and Armor Sets; and I believe since you've been gone the formerly Rank 7 & 8 (PvP Set 3) armor got its own look too!

    We've made a number of changes to the prestige system as was hinted at -

    That post recaps the biggest updates we made early this year in 1.7

    Hope that gets ya started - welcome back and have fun!

    Conquest sounds amazing, further PvP levels do not.

    but oh well. i guess you gotta put some sort of matching grind for the new pvp gear coming out.

    Are the new ranks and gear coming at the same time as Conquest?

    I really don't think i can handle another gear grind IMO The cost it set to high on the gear also, Yes we need/like the carrot on a stick, but you need to let us nibble on it more often to keep us moving!
