    Default Purging just brings the fun level down and should be nerfed/capped across the board

    It's already almost a hassle to play rift. And I am just rambling right now but I really think it is pretty ridiculous that all of your buffs can be taken from you. It's already enough work to keep putting buffs back on since you can't really put them in a macro. I mean why not just make a macro system that auto cast them all it would take the same time?

    Trion your game favors rogues and gives everyone else carpal tunnel syndrome.

    The lame garbage of rift is barely over shadowed by how good it is.

    "This game favors rogues" Wait... and you want to take away purging? Have you even looked at riftstalker or how they function?

    The game is almost a hassle to play. It's pretty ridiculous that all of your hps can be taken from you. It's already enough work to keep your HPs up and since you can't really put them in a macro. I mean why not just make a macro system that auto cast and fill your health at the same time?

    I also think Trion must code bots to play our characters for us. We're wasting time leveling & gearing them.

    Seriously, please, think 2 secs before posting.

    I find a few big problems with purges and buffs. Classes that have buffs are usually WAY too dependant on them. Strip fel blades etc off a rogue and watch them melt. Strip warrior buffs off, and the same thing usually happens. Same can be said of some cleric builds. It's almost LAUGHABLE how fast these buff dependant classes go down once you strip them. That being said, it's ridiculous the ONLY class capable of stripping said buffs effectively is a MM. Although VK are pretty good at it too, but they still can't hold a torch to MM.
    But at least we can get married now!

    Purging is part of the game.

    What is legitimately an issue are add-ons people are using that pop up to let them know they've been debuffed. Now that, is a real issue. If I purge somebodies buffs off, it's on them to recognize they've been debuffed and rebuff themselves.

    Having a program pop up and put the buffs in the middle of their screen to re-apply is something that has no place in Rift.

    I had no idea something like this existed. Now you're making me waste my lunch hour looking for an addon. Damn you!

    I find the opposite to be true, purging makes the game more fun. Nothing is more boring than having 5 people beating on a Cleric that never dies. Nothing is more boring than not being able to stop super runners tearing off into the distance. And so on, and so on, and on.

    Too many specs have huge amounts of buffs that make them juggernauts'o'doom. Without the ability to counter this warfronts would be yawn fests.

    Effective purges are necessary in Rift PvP. I PvPed in the pre-Eradicate days, and it was just silly.
