    Default All aspects of the Game question!

    Tell me this, sincerely meant because there might be something I just cant see from my point of view. If someone takes part in all aspects of pve, but no pvp, what negatives are there now?
    I can think of some achivements and Marauder gear. Anything else? (Oh maybe Fluffy...)
    And what impact does this have on their play style?

    Now contrast this to the player who want to play the pvp aspects of the game only!

    Ok so maybe pvp is supposed to be a less important part of the game? But maybe it is a bit late in the lifespan of the game to make that point now?

    ps, Ok copy paste from another post of mine, but I feel it is a good subject for a separate thread

    You can get Fluffy from Estrode in Hammerknell. Well, not from Estrode directly, but from one of the looted corpses left over (if any).

    PVP is just for the weekly horror marks, a bit of RNG on the CQ box for a heart, some gear that is decent now, a few minions, pets and other goodies, and the achievements. Nothing more, nothing less.

    Personally, I think the direction was headed that way. PVP being just a time filler until raid time or dungeon runs. And it's perfectly fine being that for those who look at it this way.

    But there are those of us who are the opposite, run dungeon content and events as a time filler to calm down between warfronts.

    So after these changes, I don't think anyone is going to be missing anything outside of raiding content, which all of us can get ready to do if we want. In the meantime, PVPers can do what they like, dungeon runners can do what they like. Hopefully since all our gear is relatively on track now, we can mix it up more. I've been thinking I'm going to stalk the dungeon forums and try recruit more people into some serious PK. And with changes to marauder gear, I'll be more comfortable healing a NME in return if they need it.

    tl;dr - everythings good imo

    PvP is a time sink for PvErs. That's the direction Trion chose with Nightmare Tide.
