It's the mechanic we have to deal with, when you have the time to play again you fill up on CQ power and then just tick it.

    yea and i think thats BS. if i want to take a break from a game my character who i have grinded on for days and spent hundreds of dollars on shouldn't lose progression. its the dumbest mechanic in the history of gaming

    I have been boycotting CQ for over a month now.


    I am not going to support something that decays from lack of play time.

    That said, Rift is a dead game. I will be utterly shocked if the servers aren't shut down completely within the year.
    Pvp is dead rift is not. All the servers are always high pop because let's face it there are more artifact collectors and dimension builders then people that raid or PvP

    I haven't stepped foot in cq since the new ranks came out. I think I'm p85 but I haven't logged on in almost a month

    CQ power is easy to get and easier to maintain, if you really want it. I started messing around with a baby rogue the past 2-3 weeks and already at about 3/4 of full power. I do not go in every CQ that pops, will skip a day or so here and there, etc. You have to spend more time in CQ while building it, but maintaining it is pretty much a non-issue if you log into rift every couple days. If you choose not to go in long enough for a tick or two that's fine too, but don't ***** about it either as you are either lazy and/or don't really care.

    Having said that, it would be nice if they had some non/low cost way to extend the decay past 2 days for those that need to be away for longer for work, school, emergencies, etc.

    Right because if you can't play for a week or so due to rl you're either lazy or don't care.

    I'm so ****ing sick of all the lame rationalizations for this pos mechanic. CQ decay is there to keep people logging in and to keep people playing CQ. What it's actually done is piss people off. This game really has devolved into a dimension/artifact fluff piece of crap.

    You see to have missed or ignored the part where i said:

    As i said, it is extremely easy to maintain if you log in every 2 days. You can still have max abilities even going 3 days, but will lose some power. But if you are logging into the game, then yes you are being lazy or don't care if you can't pop into CQ for a tick or two to maintain the current power. Either way, fine by me if you lose it and have to regain it. It has happened to me before and likely will again.

    Is it true that CQP starts decaying after 48 hours for Patrons but after only 24 hours for non Patrons?

    When they made the change from 24 to 48 hours that affected everyone its not a patron only change.

    Thanks, some recent comments had me wondering if there was a difference and Patron got a longer decay time. Trion is forever silly, they are missing the boat and angering people by not having a store item that lets people put an account wide freeze on CQP that would be removed when a raid is joined or any pvp activity occurs. Things like that get remembered forever, lol.

    Something along lines of this seems reasonable. Gives those that need/want to be away for a period a means to retain CQP, but then starts the clock again once they start doing things which likely led them to get it in the first place. Now could they implement it w/o god knows how many bugs, with unknown side effects is another thing.
