    Default Why Are There No PvP Guides?

    So, thread title says it all. Someone should do an indepth pvp guide for noobies. Something with all the basics (assisting, priority targets, use of CC) and then go a bit more in-depth later on (using LoS to expose healers, hard switching, secondary assists and why, large scale pvp, peels).

    Anyone feel like doing it?

    I think a player should do it =)

    But i think there's basic guides, in the pvp guide section

    That explains importance of positioning , with your teammates, and such

    I think I could do something like that,

    We'll see tonite ^^

    Think most of the players that use to do (and are good with it) this, have left or taking a break. Tho, there are still some here that can do a good job, if they have the time and motivation.

    Oh damn, I never noticed there was a pvp guide section lol. I might be able to do one, but it probably wouldn't be too indepth. I only started pvping 5 years ago or so, I don't have the knowledge some will have who go back to UO or DAoC. I've played with them and learned from them, but that isn't the same thing as being there.

    If Exxy posts a guide, be sure to do the exact opposite of his recommendations. You will be beast.

    Unfortunately all of the guides sections except for the four class-specific ones are so far removed from normal browsing navigation since the forums were reshuffled that you pretty much have to rely on signature links for anyone to find them.

    The question really is who would put in so much work into something that will benefit others so little.

    It's not that pvp is hard at all, it's that you either get it or you don't. If experience doesn't help those players who really need the help of guide on basics, then a dozen page guide attempting to explain the ins and outs of pvp ( players being completely unpredictable along with specs, maps and objectives etc) to read won't help much either.

    This guide would be have to be huge, you can't explain all the possible situations a player can be put in. I wouldn't know where to start even for the basics like high priority targets is just all over the place. It's like writing a guide on chess.

    I mean if anyone is up for such a daunting task you'd have to make a series of video episodes with commentary outlining your thought process, mistakes and the mistakes of others and how you and your team use it to your advantage.

    But since rift really lacks the support for a competitive environment it'll be hard to apply any skills or tricks you learn..... like.... anywhere.........................at all.

    Rift has PvP?

    I thought warfronts are just PvE instanced maps with various AI opponents of varying stupidity with a myriad of yell commands to make them seem like real people.
