To turn your guild dimension into a PvP dimension, you will need to buy from the Rift store: "PVP: Join Dominion, Nightfall and Oathsworn Banners" (for two factions, you only need Dominion and Nightfall; but if you want to have all three factions like Conquest, then you must get Oathsworn in addition to the other two), "PVP: Start Point - Dominion, Nightfall and Oathsworn" as well as "PVP Graveyard - Dominion, Nightfall and Oathsworn" (respective respawn points for each faction) which you may place anywhere. Is your in-game name Ryoxis@Seastone? I will send you the giftable kit. If you need any help, let me know. Kozzmo@Faeblight is truly an epic dimension builder.

    If you go higher than 1v1, like 3v3 or 5v5, then you will need to be sure everyone is grouped and in the dimension before they flag (or Guardians and Defiants will drop group). Currently, you may have a Defiant versus a Defiant or a Guardian versus a Guardian or a Defiant versus a Guardian in a PvP dimension, or a mix of Guardians and Defiants in a group if more than 1v1. You may invite players from other shards to your dimension as well. I would like to recommend setting your guild dimension so that the public cannot "Move", "Place" or "Pick Up". Setting the guild dimension on private is another thing you might want to consider should there be any interference from spectators, but that is entirely up to you. Also, may I add your event to www.riftpvpdimensions.com and recommend it to other websites to list, like Rift PvP League, RiftGrate, siradio, Rift Community Creations, Rift Dimension Addicts and The Dimension Touring Company?

    Will this be livestreamed on http://www.twitch.tv/pactgaming? "


    ---------

    WELL THAN that was much more than a response I expected.

    Yes, we are streaming via twitch.tv/pactgaming!

    My name on there is in fact Ryoxis and I am on seastone (pvp) so I believe the handle is correct.

    We are looking to get all factions involved to make this PVP event more prominent and reliable. In the future we will exceed the 1v1 threshold as we push into Rift.

    You're rather knowledgeable on Rift, Im curious if I could talk to you about a few things? If not an Interview to get some goodie details, as well make an article about your experiences in the PVP environment via rift?

    you are going to kill this by not allowing tank or healing souls. a decent INQ will massacre everyone.

    let everyone use everything. Chloro harb is not as OP as everyone says, same thing with Sin/Rs.

    I think you should instead specify not pure tank or not pure heal. Perhaps limit the # of points spent into either tree, like say 30. I dont know.


    Most duel specs are about survival and outputting bleeds, poisons, proc damage (most).

    I do not consider charb or cdom healing specs. Those are the Mages best dueling specs and it would not be fair to take them off the table.

    As a signed up participant of this, I'd like to respectfully state that in my opinion these rules are not specific enough... what is considered an exploit? what is considered a healing soul? How do you ensure that someone who lost is not going to try to jump back in? Will these matches be reffed and watched closely? What is the method of enforcing these rules?

    In my personal opinion, anything with over 38 points in a healing soul is considered a healer and should not be allowed, and there's no issue with tanks in duels (that I could think of anyways).

    Duels are utterly dumb when it comes to Rogues. Basically one person starts out with a major disadvantage if it isn't a stalemate beginning.

    If one uses a sin, the other has to pretty much not use an assassin for the duel to even play out reasonable. But even a NB would prefer to start out stealth. But a sin would just wait for the 30s timer to let up.

    But that is why people say this game is not based around 1 v 1. 2 rogues dueling is like the corniest thing ever half the time. I'd look into stealth rules personally. But be careful, don't destroy assassin or anything as a huge part of their execution relies on coming out of stealth. Problem is if you get two people who want to play that. Do they just have to take turns not playing sin? Do they just both agree to not play sin altogether?

    Sorry, let me elaborate further.

    As a signed up participant of this, I'd like to respectfully state that in my opinion these rules are not specific enough...

    what is considered an exploit?
    Anything that is an error in Rift development/Bugs that have not been fixed which can alter the duel outcome and or third party programs. Pretty standard Broad statement of cheating aint cool. There isn't apparently too many things people could do, I can as our D.Ops to pull a list together if You really need it.

    what is considered a healing soul? -
    this is the current list we have:

    Chloromancer Healing
    Defiler Healing
    Liberator Healing
    Physician Healing
    Purifier Healing
    Sentinel Healing
    Warden Healing

    How do you ensure that someone who lost is not going to try to jump back in?
    In basic tournament standpoints, there is a Reff - in our case, "Tournament Official." It has been stated the entire match is going to be streamed, during our show "SoulBound" for our Launch party on 7/12/13, which will be live from 10am-10pm for multiple diff tournaments in multi diff games.

    Will these matches be reffed and watched closely?
    Yes, as stated above there will be a ref in place, as well aiming towards a very well knowledgeable individual to help commentate on whats happening on the battlefield.

    What is the method of enforcing these rules?
    In terms of checking specs, there isnt directly a way to see what specs a player is using, unless they use a skill that is only available within that tree. So hopefully we get enough votes to remove the Spec bann.

    easy solution is put a time cap on each duel at like a minute. If you don't have enough dps to kill someone in that time it's a loss (make ties count as both party's losing) while the actual dps progress to the next round.
