    Default Whats Your PvP Carrot?

    Meh...its CQ PA. I have pvp endgamed many MMOs for the past 10+ years, and one thing I enjoy about Rift is the PA grind. A point or two a night is enough to keep me from feeling bored. 99% of post-wow MMOs these days have pvp gear...but once you complete your build sometimes its hard committing to full time pvp and find oneself either getting hooked back into pve or serving an alt towards endgame.

    Oh cant forget WFs...I hated them before I was gimped and serving as a target dummy, now they are fun again since I started feeling gear power a couple months ago (I afk'd Rift for a year until a few months ago). But they still only serve as a pvp filler, since my heart always belonged to mass pvp.

    PA is my carrot.

    Whats yours?

    Carrot for pvping?
    Having fun is one.
    Granted it's not really fun after the conquest patch failure. I'm looking at you person who keeps using aoe attacks in ST situations and getting killed by barbed shot while running around a tree.

    PA is your carrot?

    I have been farming kills on 2 toons since PA was introduced and with nothing but wfs. i currently have 404 PA levels... I think there are better aspects of the game that suites PA grinding MUCH faster then PvP.

    My carrot is killing "QQ I dont want arena" carebears. The same carebears that QQ about getting rolled by premades all day! irnoic...

    Killing bads and making them mads.

    I had a 4k nysyr tick last night. Too bad the dude was only at 3k hp otherwise I might've seen if that 4k made a return the next tick.

    Fun.

    If I'm not having fun, I don't queue.

    Also, costume pieces. Those things are awesome.

    Fun and challenge. No matter how good I get, there is always someone to learn from. Always. That's why PvP > PvE and always will be.

    Gear and a challenge.

    As soon as I get all the gear I switch focus to an alt.

    Getting matches that are a challenge to win while not involving one side blowing out the other.

    The ~5% of games where that actually happens are quite fun indeed!

    Those matches where you feel like rambo in the middle of the 300 fight scene, coming incredibly close to death really often and somehow managing to survive while fighting off hordes of enemies and utilizing clever techniques to bring down tough opponents.

    In other words, those 494-500 matches in Black Garden, or similar.

    I would cheer. It's downright criminal that they do the damage they do while soaking up the damage they can.

    Don't really have a "carrot" but I guess in a mmorpg sense, probably just the gear/rep grind (lol what). Mostly do mmorpg-based PvP to play with friends or to kill time since I'm kinda lazy to play other games sometimes.
