    Default Rogue Imbalance

    Rogue Imbalance-2014-06-03_135941.jpg

    this screenshot is Trions idea of warfront balance of classes during a battle and further the balance of classes i.e rogue healers. I think it is time for Trion to wake up and smell the roses. They really screwed up, Rift has become a game of who has the most rogues. There is no longer any class distinction as to what job characters are to perform. Rogue healers have become so over powered that in most cases they out heal every other class on an average of 2-3 to 1 for the amount of healing done. Their buffs/heals make it impossible for a group of less than 4 people to kill them. When you have a group of 3 or 4 rogue healers together as the screenshot shows you can forget about doing anything. For me Rift used to be fun to play not any longer.

    rogues are the bright wizards of rift. We all know how that game ended.

    Sigh I remember when class balance was when which side had the most warriors won. SbArc tempagon too stronk.

    Except for these occasional healing stalemates, it still is about who has the most warriors. That hasn't changed at all.

    I rolled a rogue on my husband's account - he has the new souls and I do not and I wanted to experiment with it. My first instant adventure today was an all rogue group for about 15-20 minutes. Then a mage and warrior joined.

    Warfronts are largely dominated by rogues. But tbh, it's not solely Trion's fault for the large population of rogues. I rolled a private server version of my last game, it was nothing but pvp. With very tiny exceptions, everyone I ran into was a rogue. In 2 weeks of that game, I ran into a warrior once, and a mage once. Had a similar experience in previous game. Rogues tend to be solid (sometimes OP) pvp classes. While I'm a bit disappointed that things are the same in Rift right now, I'm also hopeful that things will get better as the novelty wears off the new souls.

    It appears at one point, number of warriors per group decided warfronts. That gives me hope that it's not a lost cause yet. People were QQing left and right for the first few days of the new souls because warfronts were healing stalemates. Then people started realizing they need dps to kill things, and while things still aren't perfect, I think they're better on that aspect. Maybe it just needs more time.

    Rogues have always had high representation in Rift, this is not new, even when they were mediocre.

    It's still a terrible PvP spec compared to Marksman, though.

    They really started after the big rogue patch (forget which one) and it has been imbalanced ever since. Have commented on it in the past. Finally, others have noticed enough to post. It is what happens with overpowered class. Warriors were doing the same, until the tempest nerf. Trion does not let their own data, help make choices, rogue is a shining example. Glad a have 60 alt rogue...lol

    Even though there are lots of rogues, only like 5 people can play them well, so who cares?

    You just got unlucky, I could post screenshot of team with 90% clerics.
    PvP in RIFT is good only @forum.

    Being good at mage and rogue disqualifies you from the vote.
