    Still are zero plans for Arena in RIFT.

    I just got out of a pretty exciting meeting that had excited designers, excited engineers, and excited managers regarding competitive player managed PvP.

    We are looking at giving you the tools to do what you want. Where it goes from there is up to you /if/ we can deliver what we talked about.

    It's still a terrible PvP spec compared to Marksman, though.

    It's bad. Done explained why there are better MM specs, won't go through it again. Ask yourself why none of these rogues ever play 61 MM:

    Nuku
    Veeru
    Me
    Xtype

    And then ask yourself who are the best MM. You might see some correlation.

    Where is this coming from? I didn't say anything about raids.

    Raids are also a sideshow (there's a reason why "raid logger" is a bit of a pejorative term), but they're one that the developers seem to be passionate about. If they decided to stop making them, or to alter them in a way that made them more appealing to more of the playerbase, I wouldn't really fault them for it-- I might not like it, but that doesn't (necessarily) mean that they'd be wrong to do it.

    So if they're not playing 61 Marksman, what are they playing?

    I used to really have doubts about until veeru gave me the exact lay out of how he does it. The damage is crazy and it has static shot as utility even though it sacrifices eradicate.

    I remember my first warfront with it.. man if people though it was bad before with just 61 mm, this spec drops a grenade on the healers lap lmfao.

    Could this be group-duels in Dimensions?

    Could this be the ability to place PvP Objectives and set PvP Match Settings in Dimensions (basically letting players create their own Warfront maps)?

    Could this be a way to score the teams and/or players and keep track of it on server-side, per Dimension?

    44mm/32rng is a good compromise between the two.

    I'm open minded, link to the build then.

    The only problem with group duel diminsions is the built ground terrain.

    On plat forms created by players it doesnt allow for perfect alighnment so using certain abilitys like thunderous leap , riftwalk, and flicker would cause you to apear underneath the platform.

    If they could fix that it all very viable.
