    Default Level 60 Conquest is now on the PTS

    Following a brief update to the Public Test Shard (PTS) Conquest for level 60's is available to try out

    First, the "bad" news, it's still set in Stillmoor (or at least that was the map available) and upon a casual look around seems the exact same, bases, extractor points, even the three Planar bosses who are now level 60.

    For those hoping to repeat the debut of level 50 Conquest and all rush to spawn camp Dominion, say hello to my little friend

    The first difference you will notice is that your old level 50 trinket (you did hang onto it, right?) is now upgradable, same as the gear in Storm Legion is

    Here's the stats for the Mage trinket upgrades, DPS and Healing

    A feature that many people asked for has been put in, the new Conquest Quartermaster can now be found inside the PvP hall in Tempest Bay

    She has a few new items to buy and also will offer not one, but two Dailies for Conquest

    Note, all my Conquest perks seemed to have reset, still kept my old "marks" but it looks like everyone will be starting from scratch with a clean slate.

    Since Update 2.1 is supposed to drop next Wednesday, 12/12/12 it doesn't leave much time to test so no idea will Conquest for 60's arrive with 2.1 but expect some test times soon

    So it's pretty much the same CQ as before, even with choosing teams instead of random teams?

    Wtf.

    Really disappointed with this news. Says a lot about how much effort and vision Trion has for PvP.

    i too hoped they at least alter the really bad endgame (or even just delete its just totally bad). but now we can assume this piece of **** is what trion has in mind with open world pvp. very sad.

    Every dps with a rng chain lightning. I hope the proc sucks. I already last two seconds in pvp without rng bolts flying around on top of it.

    I wonder if these procs ignore valor like previous ones? That'll be cute too.

    Gear damage procs suck and typically always have. And I am talking well before playing Rift. It just didn't change in Rift.

    Also, PvP'ers got quite a lot of stuff cut out for them to get into and do. Still ranking, grabbing new gear, now getting CQ goodies. So many carrots

    I want seige warfare dammit with holes blown through walls!

    Oh and enlistment perks would help...wait, nm that! Everyone would sign up as NF and noone to fight!:P. But serious, CQ needs some long term or effect on the rest of the game. When a faction wins, open up a rift in CQ with unique rewards for the winner. That way players sign up for their needs and not so much faction style as in NF favor, Oath marks or Dom quickies.

    The Daoc in me is still happy CQ is returning!

    I already spotted this and some more, check my first 2 posts in this thread:

    http://forums.riftgame.com/rift-gene...-seen-pts.html

    Basically I have screens of the tooltips of ALL the trinkets, and I have details on the new daily and weekly quest.

    I did screw up a few parts of the post, namely that I said only the trinket needed favor, that should have been marks. Cant edit it to fix it though.

    Is this the final version? They said they were working on a new version, please say this isn't it. It was supposed to be in a new land.
