    Do you like to whine and backstab? Pick a rogue.

    Do you like squirrels? Pick a mage

    Do you like to be a squirrel? Pick a warrior.

    Do you like to laugh at people that spend 5 minutes of solo combat beating on you without denting your armor? Pick a cleric.

    Ignore the trolls like the guy above me. I'll give you a serious answer but in order to do so I need to know your preferred play style.

    Do you like ranged? Do you like kiting? Do you like fast paced visceral melee combat? Do you like to heal and have high survivability? Do you like CC and nuke style gameplay? Without knowing those I would just be projecting my own opinions on to you. Every class in this game has viable pvp specs. All of them. So it really comes down to playstyle.

    Speaking in seriousness this time, for melee class that can still do some damage from range, you may want to play around with 51RB/10VK/5RV. You get all the range from RB plus some survivability when you equip your shield and jump into the trenches. Good fun.

    Then you probably want to play rogue. Cleric melee sucks, warriors have no ranged, mages have no melee. Rogues get both so Id go with that.

    You want to play on Bloodiron in that case, second highest pop and is a PvP shard.

    I just believe in giving a straight answer to perspective new players. I have a sense of humor However when it comes to nuturing the game I take that seriously.

    As to the OP, Warrior or Rogue are probably what you want to look at. Warriors have some limited range via certain specs and heavy melee capability. Rogues have moderate melee and moderate to heavy ranged. But its often hard to find a build that balances both well. You might enjoy a Sabdancer style spec which has strong AOE range and upclose melee capability via the bladedancer soul. Refer to the "Rogue PVE Bible" in the class forums for specifics on different builds and what they can do.

    But don't count out Riftblade heavy warrior specs since you might enjoy those as well. I will say Rogue tends to play faster because of the GCD.

    This about sums it up. As I posted in another thread rift pvp is a game of chance. Does not really matter what calling you go for. 50% of the team will be rogues..and whoever lands the most clerics with the other 50% wins. To be safe I would chose rogue. They will always be ok at pvp. And if you suck just vanish and hide out like chicken a sapping people to be a pain.

    I would say rogue for sure. I have a war and rogue who do a lot of PvP, the war is a lot of fun and powerful but very limited in flexibility and painful to rank up.

    The rogue offers a lot, for range you have the marksman who when played right can be a focus target killer with the constant purges to remove buffs and heals while others destroy the target. You also have the sab for mass aoe chaos, great in places where there is a bottle neck or players just like to group up.

    For melee you have high assassin builds for being an opportunist or protecting key points. Or when better geared you have nightblade/riftstalker for taking heavy abuse and doing in your face damage.

    You also have the bard who in waterfront can be excellent support alongside full time healers, providing constant aoe healing.
