    Default I'm getting flashbacks to 1.7 release

    This is what the valor buffs in 1.7 felt like.

    DPS just stopping and standing in the middle of battle.

    Also proves cross healing in Rift is the easiest thing ever since apparently all the new people can do it so well in a few hours, but people dpsing forever still can't. trolol

    I know what you are saying, but in my opinion its mostly just the volume of healers, not so much healing itself.

    Yeah my first warfront did remind me of 1.7 right away.

    Also if I had a buck for everytime someone un marked a healing warrior today and raged in chat about it I would be rich.

    nothing will ever top the 1.4? patch that was intended to nerf parachimp, but buffed it by over 9000 percent instead.

    This is exactly what it is. You can't "fix" it. It is nothing more than a pure volume thing. Warriors and Rogues could never heal this good, so they are. Clerics are still healing and I still see chloro mages. So basically there is just a ton of healers. Teams now are loaded with heals and DPS has gone downhill. I mean WF's where people should be ending with 500 - 1m damage, everyone is coming in at 300k or less.

    The design is either something you keep or don't. I think it's just the initial craze. Everyone wants to play new souls and more heals are in WFs. To tweak mechanics around simply a volume increase is not that good of an idea. Because that will change and even, per chance, change dramatically match to match.

    I'd say it's just initial craze~ There is nothing that broken going on, just tons of people playing heal roles for a change. Major paradigm shift.

    First there's not enough healers.

    Now there are too many.

    What does it take to please these people.

    They even have puppies in warfronts with reindeer hats on.

    Rift warfronts now?

    Are like random battlegrounds in wow, the only difference is that there multiboxers see the gear at a lower pace than the casuals in rated, and they get to hold the weapons when they are old news. Here they have to make up for the cash lost due to driving away the casual community, and throw in big price tags for gear. If they intend to pve, too, the cash doubles.
    The 40 man BG are the present conquest
    Casual pvp has no niche in Rift, I do not pay a sub for, and no aim for bis gear.

    Itís not appropriate to compare the 3, 4 people that rule your warfronts with what was before F2P.

    i wouldn't mind a much higher TTK, but some nuke builds should be brought in line with sustain DPS specs before such a daring attempt should happen

    I agree, but having to disregard 80.8% of a stat seems like you gave up on class balance, slapped a band aid on and called it a day. What's next 90% in 3.0?

    This is serious. There are so many ways to abuse current wf objectives.

    that is probably what annoys me the most about Rift PvP - bandaid solutions, and a lot of them.
