    Default PvP Seal

    The title says it all. I only pvp so my seal is barely upgraded since i find NMR's extremely tedious and boring. A pvp seal would be very nice for pvp only people like myself.

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.

    You'd be surprised that there are a lot of PVE people that don't really have it upgraded to max. IMO, the upgrade system for it sucks butt..


    But what sucks even more is no pvp gear. I'd rather farm pvp for pvp gear \_(ツ)_/

    You think "PvEers" enjoy farming Nightmare Rifts for the seal too?
    You don't want to do more than PvP?
    Then it's your own problem.

    No workaround is required this is not a lobby game and some things require you to do more than sit in margal palace and press a button to que.
    I know that there are some of you that believe fully that a guild of millionaires is going to appear on day one and down all the content.

    I can give one sorta: I doubt they'll ever make anything directly earned through PVP itself through Favor. There is no favor cap and you can infinitely grind Favor out to get what you need pretty fast. The only way you'd be able to MAYBE make it so you can "earn" it in pvp is to put the motes in pvp caches ALONG with the rest of the loot table.

    I think that would be even worse since with NMR caches, you're at least guaranteed a single Mote in epic caches.

    I farm them because I have to. It sucks, but I know if I put in the time I will get the goods. I'll take that over the system for the essences any day. The essence system is my idea of a nightmare.

    Your point is well taken, but on the flip side, this is only a min/max issue. A seal is the only item you can't get from PvP crates (not counting the synergy crystal). And the basic seal is a pretty cheap AH item. The final upgrade requires a huge amount of time and quite a bit of Plat for the mats (at least on my server). So, most folks will find themselves somewhere in between these bookends and it's not a huge swing either way on the stats.

    Don't worry about it...

    Not that this would ever happen but ;

    A daily quest that is basically identical (but harder) to the kill 15 Nmr mobs - close 2 Nmrs Daily in Tarken. You could do either of these but not both.

    Ex.

    The Mote Code

    Obatin 200 kills in the Codex.
    Cap one base in the Codex.
    Obtain Victory x 2 in the Codex.

    Rewards:

    Mote thingy for ugrade x 1 - 149,351 pa xp - 2p

    Have the "Warfront of the day" (the one corresponding to the daily) have a chance (10%) to drop a mote in addition to normal loot from loot chests obtained in said wf. Have a chance (2.5%) for a mote to drop for your team when capping / defending a base.

    Would still be a stupidly annoying grind, but more fun for pvpers who hate all forms of pve. Quest would be much harder to do and less viable than spending 40 mins in tarken.

    Also would improve odds of a wf to q for where everyone was on the same page (winning the game).

    Trion has posted several times that their design philosophy is that folks who participate in multiple aspects of the game should gear up faster than folks who participate in 1 element only. So, while many of the suggestions above make it easier for PvP'ers to upgrade their seal doing only PvP, it conflicts with Trion's design philosophy and hence are not likely to be implemented.

    The best chance you have for getting changes implemented is to align your suggestions with Trion's objectives.

    Well except pvers are better equipped for the pve task of getting pve seals.

    Tdain 10/10 Dark Side. Getting pvp gear back would be great, if a seal alone is the first step then tallyho.
    Even if the motes came in (ugh) RNG boxes.
