    Default Crazy Idea: White Gear PVP Tournament

    I was wondering if you all have any feedback on how viable a "White Gear PVP tournament" would be. Meaning a tournament where only white gear purchased from those armor and weapon vendors in town were allowed.

    It would almost be like the old Roman gladiator scene where the combatants just had to pick from what weapons were available to them.

    Would the current power of abilities and spells make it where they would be too powerful without the mitigation of gear and stats to compensate for it?

    Sounds like a fun idea, regardless of balance stuff, actually.

    Haha - going to do some white gear duels later to let you know. Granted most of my duels feel like im fighting in white gear anyhow. I'll get some good people to duel a bit in white gear and let you know lol

    From looking around the forums I doubt I would have the required forum celebrity status to make an event like this gain traction. I am working on my talking points for 2015 though!
