    It is a progressive method of upgrading armor until you have the best.

    You start out with freelancer (there is a vendor for each of these 3 sets that sell all you need). Then you upgrade Freelancer --> Warlord. Then you can upgrade Warlord --> Myrmidon. You have to be PvP rank 90 for Myr. weapons and r80 for Warlord weapons. You can buy Warlord gear with credit but unless you are cool with wasting money just play the game and earn the sets. Going fast forward with cash anyway would leave you with lots of down-time where you aren't earning things...the progression path wasn't designed to grab it all in one sweep.

    That's it for the gear at least.

    Thanks so much for a fast response. I fully understand now. I just started pvping in rift at lvl 55 lol so i was confused there for a second. I'm not high enough level yet to get the freelance gear and upgrade it so i guess that's where my confusion came in. Also so far, Rift has an amazing store and i was going to be pissed if the pvp was pay to win lol

    That's only true for weapons, not the armor. Without valor you will be 1 shot.

    When you realize how long it will take you to get into full warlord without paying anything goodluck. Its not so much pay to win but it is without a doubt pay to play.

    Pay.. what to play?
    Time? yes. Money? No.
    Skill > Gear

    You wont get 1 shoted because top PvE gear gives more armor.

    Myrm leather chest:

    3782 armor
    69 dex
    48 str
    101 endurance
    82 physical crit
    53 vengeance
    300 valor

    compare it to top PvE shop leather tunic:

    5630 armor
    143 dex
    107 str
    107 endurance
    93 crit power

    I think he's on to something. If we all did massive amounts of drugs and spent all of our time of the forums spouting total BS I don't think anyone would be dieing in wfs.

    No real point to paying with the way the gating works. See Violacea post above.

    You can get freelancer easy enough w/o spending credits. You can have max Warlord marks saved up by time you are r70. Use those for initial Freelancer -> Warlord upgrades and just upgrade the rest as you rank up between r70 to r80. The majority, if not all, of your gear should be Warlord and items for weapon upgrade ready by time you are r80. Rinse and repeat for r80 to r90.

    One thing to keep in mind which synergy crystal works for the PvP gear rank. The Myrm gear is that it uses the new/higher crystals. It can be costly (in terms of IS) if your PvE gear is the lower rank than your PvP. Likely to be more of an issue when you start getting Myrm gear.

    you realize losing 300 valor = about 20% more damage taken compared to someone with full pvp setup, right? The armor difference is nowhere close to making this difference up.
    Do the herpty derp, please, keep LOSing your healers behind objects so you die.

    300 valor giving 20% dmg reduction? rofl and whos on drugs here. Even if 2k armor isnt as good as 300 valor the offensive stats make up for it. Ranged dps and stealth classes benefit more from dps.
