    Then I'll queue with a Riftblade, and try to convince myself that mages are worthwhile as a dps class lol

    Didn't you reply to one my my posts stating rb isn't more powerful then any other dps spec and was in-line. Maybe you meant to say when you que with an mm, inq, harb, temp, sin, etc...

    Change your mind since you singled out the rb?

    Person on any dps class = 10 kbs
    Same person playing rb instead = double to triple the kbs.

    And yes mages still need love. Ive shelved mine until then since i dont want to be dom constantly and am all chloroed out.

    Its the build adding skill to the already existing skill, thats when things are out of line with other comparable dps.

    I don't really understand? He has more KBs sure, but your damage is pretty close. Maybe I just got trolled. IDK!

    If you judge the quality of Pvp with KB, its really sad, and the worst, is that you do

    Since you even order your leaderboard by KB

    sigh

    Also, All your screenies show yourself performing against people who were not even focusing you

    I'Ll start taking screenies of how you perform when you are actually targeted, We'll see if you do as good ^^

    The good dps load damage and get the kill with a huge burst gcd. You are a better player if you have high kbs/lower damage AND are not actively kill stealing.

    More kbs are due to the 15 sec cd rift strike with added procs and an equally bursty follow up attack.

    Rbs arent getting numbers from stealing kills. They simply are superior burst on a super low buildup and cd, hence why damage is the same yet another class has same damage but a lot lower kbs. I thought a dpser would have known its the burst by now.

    I fully understand how the class works, thanks though. But to say Pyro isn't a worthwhile class is just wrong.

    you mean a melee soul out preforms a range soul, the horror....pyro should not be as good as rb. that last screen shot looks dead on to me. Harb and RB are about the same. RB more overall damage, harb more utility and tougher 1 v 1.

    Maybe if mages used CC, they would understand how good they are.

    RB has 2 stuns... that's it.

    i just think mages dont want to play melee which is fine but the mages that i see run it melt me in 61rb 1 v 1. with a healer i think rb is slightly ahead but i think thats fair considering its our only viable dps soul

    Warriors have always been OP, that is just something I have chosen to live with while playing rift. They rise and fall but majority of the time, they are insane..

    If you fully understood then your original statement is contradicting any understanding by stating he had same damage but a lot less kbs so whats the problem. No clue why u said that unless you are trolling.

    Pyro is almost there, but id rather play my inq. Then again im not the best on pyro so maybe a few skilled ones got it down in a challenging situation. Sniping kbs and showing stats from easy wfs dont impress me.

    I don't think RB's are overpowered at all, I just want to be equal to one, and no I don't want to play melee, considering I have 6 ranged souls and 1 melee soul.

    The main issue with Harbinger is that it gets completely shut down by purges.
