    *sigh* the last thing Rift pvp needs is more rogues.
    though he's right, they are good at everything, the best at some things.
    which is why we don't need any more of them, because every FotM kiddie is currently playing a rogue, and half the non FotM kiddies are also playing rogues, because they got tired of their preferred class playing second fiddle to rogues in their chosen role.

    for PvP...

    Mages struggle as healers and end up being best used as support healers to better heal souls from Cleric and the Rogue one. They have a good CC class that no other calling touches. It does decent AoE damage for the CC it brings. It can really debilitate someone. Mage DPS is alright, but it can mostly be cleansed off so if someone starts doing that you get a major wrench in your killing power.

    Warriors are limited but make some good damage doing hybrids that squash ( 1 v 1) typical rogue DPS souls that do equal or better damage. They have a couple good damage souls in good places and a very powerful (atm) ST dps soul. They are a pretty limited calling. They have an AoE healing soul,, I am not highly familiar with it, but I know I don't have major issue killing warrior healers.

    Clerics - 3 great healing souls that execute uniquely to one another. One provides shielding, one is raw healing, and another is the king of mitigation. They have a good range caster DPS soul (and an AoE one that can pull it off) as well as a good melee soul. Clerics are in a good spot.

    Rogues have all the good stuff. Their ranged souls are nothing to write home about but they can good. Rogue melee is very good when played well and healed when needed. Their support souls are great and the new healing soul is enough to fill my heal void that I want. If I wanted healing as my main niche I'd still want a cleric because they are viable in a variety of ways for healing. But Rogues in general are like jack of all trades for PvP. They can range DPS, melee DPS in a few varieties, have some great AoE power, strong ST burst, good ST healing, solid support, and their tank role is pretty rockin'. I am also biased as I am a rogue . But as others have said, you can't go wrong with one. For PvP purposes, they are a very fluid calling where synergy is at a good level and soul viability is very strong for most of the souls. I'd say the least viable ones are Tact and RS. Tact just makes hybrids some choose to use and RS has only a couple objectives related niches because it can move swiftly. The other 8 souls can definitely make a spot for themselves on a WF team. I do not feel like that is the case with every calling, I think Rogue has the best overall versatility in PvP. But that is not to say *at all* that the other callings are anything short of very powerful in their own ways in PvP. I am merely speaking on a versatility aspect here.

    As if clerics are near as jack of all trades as the Rogue (you didn't mention the cleric tanking soul) id pick that , since there is too many rogues as it is apparently lol

    It is exaggeration. They are the most versatile probably. But don't kid yourself that any good player behind any calling can perform exceptionally.

    Well that's good , my ideal choice would be Cleric or Warrior , also as for sides is it still the same as Before Deviant and Guardians rotate who's winning , or has one side shot ahead?

    Because my preference is warriors , what dps specs are good for PvP , and how is the healing soul ? as for when i'm with my friends I like to heal and keep them alive but if its meh I won't waste the 40$ on the soul pack.
