    Default Another Sick of the Reaver Thread!

    Played Mage since beta for a long time just pvp, back and forth its good its bad, what ever.

    Last week I leveled my warrior up to 65... its a f'ing joke I'm top dps top kb's in lvl 60 gear.... and its getting worse as I gear up. To do the same as my mage and I am almost full raid gear I have to either have a support healer and work my *** off, or just get plain lucky.

    Running healer because the reaver is now the fan boi spec there are just not enough gcd's to cleanse.

If I could design something and get people who don't even want to do it, flooding my gates doing it on their own will.

    Is sub 3k elo a valid retort now like sub 65 pvp being written off?

    (sorry I was going to go with pyro op, but got inb4 blocked)

    I'm 2,901. Sub 3k elo is to be disregarded as newbery.

    I usually keep rocking Pyromancer myself. Use your ints, stuns and debilitates right, and los when needed. To be honest, Reaver isn't really all that awesome in warfronts if you know how to use your spec

    Pyro has burst true and yes I can get many kbs and solid damage. If the pvp group is good then I'll run dom or heals.

    However I am comparing a raid geared mage that has pvped since beta and knows how to pvp, los, stun icds, burst kitting etc, to my alt that has been 65 for less than 2 weeks and out dps the mage single target and aoe with the same spec running a figure of eight then escape stealth get heals and run in and do the same again.

    Raid geared Pyro burst single target: 6K
    Expert or worse geared Reaver single target : 5k
    Raid geared Pyro burst aoe target: waste of time, just burn down the healers
    Expert or worse geared Reaver aoe target : 8-10k while still doing 6k on the single target and moving as much as you like

    The nerf to make most reaver dots cleanse-able has minimal effect because if your a good reaver your re-applying as they get cleansed, also with 4-5 reavers good luck!

    Enjoy it before the Rift PvP dev realizes how strong it is and nerfs it.

    Oh wait.
