    Default Pvp gear

    Pvp gear is a joke. You spend huge amount of time leveling and gearing to max only to be
    killed in a duel by a rougue or tempest or other high dps spec in pve gear. Its like going to
    silverwood or the defiant starting zone and getting killed by a mobs in less then 4 seconds.
    And yet ive seen it happen way to often, to be purely just a bad player. Imho a pve geared
    player should never ever even dream of killing even an afk max pvp geared player.

    I will agree with you that top PvP gear is weak compared to top PvE gear. However I disagree with any complains about being killed in a duel. This is MMO and it's not balanced around duels.


    Imo Valor and Vengeance stats simply dont give enough power to make them necessary for open world pvp. Greater Torvan essences > pvp essences anytime in open world pvp. I can say the same about certain Relic weapons which give a lot of bonus dmg.

    For example compare Myrm bow to top PvE bow. Top PvE bow got 408 dps and 2x higher stats of each + bonus dmg active on hit chance to proc.
    PvP in RIFT is good only @forum.

    haha i couldnt disagree with you more

    A. you didnt earn ****...pvp gear is awarded for time played that would be like saiyng you earned a sun tan
    B. gear is a huge advantage as is if you die to a low ranked player its because they are way way better than you
    C. pvp should be about skill not gear and if gear is a must is should never be the most important factor

    not saying it should be the most important factor but if pve geared player kills pvp geared player. Then gear being a factor on a scale of 1 to 10 it gets a 1.

    pvp damage is so utterly rediculous how do you out skill dieing in a 2-3 second time frame

    don't duel

    especially a class mostly designed for short 1v1 fights.

    You said rogue (guess sin) and tempest....not just a gear problem...it is a class balance issue.

    Dude, really? How the f*** are you going to die vs a pve geared player?

    I duel pve geared players and freakin one shot them before any of my damage buffs kick in.

    I'm the pvper that LOOOOVES gear, and storm legion makes me a sad panda bear. I used to love mix and matching gear, like the heal on block essences and trinket to my hybrid tank build. Or maxing out crit by mixing rogue gear with my warrior gear. The only thing I hated was the relics in pvp. I've said it before, I love to fight against players that had unique builds, nowadays your just fighting clones, some good some bad but they are all just clones.
