    Default So rogues get the most OP new class? Who wouldve thought..

    Is it a deliberate strategy by the design team to always make sure rogues have the strongest souls and most options ?
    It must be written on a whiteboard somewhere, in permanent marker.
    It cant just be luck of the draw can it? A happy coincidence..

    Meh. MEh. MEH.

    Eh it's fun to play from a disadvantage. Makes you feel better every time you drop a rogue even though he theoretically should have won.
    I take my beating though from good rogues occasionally.
    A good MM is really the only class that will out damage me (ignoring aoe fluff classes).

    I thought what was written on the whiteboard was:

    Warriors must always have one PvP spec that is better than anything else in the game.

    Historically, warriors had the biggest advantages in Rift.

    At the moment WL has decent survivability and damage, but Para's St damage is pretty insane.

    Honsetly para had the tools needed to kill that WL lacks.

    The burst is intense if you time your cooldowns right, you can basically chain a 4 second stun into a 3 second debilitate (silence) to down heals, you have mobility and in a myr set around 32k hp with a feast.

    It's an extremely underrated spec ATM. Everyone just stuck on WL beacuse of its HP.

    another bad rogue complaining rogue is the easiest pvp archetype. before all this healing overdose we warriors only had 1 decent spec if we solo q. Now we can rock para and wl due to surplus heals.

    How many viable rogue specs is there for pvp? hell of a lot more than warriors that's for sure!

    You were able to play warlord before the surplus of heals.

    Also, don't forget BM.

    I'm not sure you did, perhaps it was just a misunderstanding on my part though. It has a ridiculous purge and an uncleansable sleep - it's pretty ridiculous, especially in 5vs5.

    The Rogue archetype appeals to a certain lowest common denominator of player so it will always be a money maker and, therefore, over tuned role.

    Have you seen new Ranger? You can top the charts in that fairly easily.

    Soul designed to heal tanks in raids is good in small scale pvp? Who would've thought?!
    PvP in RIFT is good only @forum.
