    Default Forced to PvP?

    Why am I forced to PvP to rank 8 to get a trinket I need in PvE?

    I chose a PvE server because I do not have the time to concentrate on more than one aspect of the game.
    I do not have time to PvP I do not want to invest that time.

    I find it incredibly irritating that I have to grind for long periods of time in PVP to get good for PVE. This needs to be fixed ASAP.

    If I feel I am forced to do something in the game, something I specifically chose not to do, then you have really given me only one other choice.

    Because you suck at PvE.

    Also, this is the wrong forum.

    Plenty of PvE trinkets and gear in game. If you're trying to optimize gear with BIS its not forcing, its entirely up to you. Forcing content is to make you be rank 6 before you can enter a PvE dungeon. As far as I can remember only the Saga of the Endless requires you to go into a PvP Warfront and win a single match for PvE progression.

    If you're choosing to optimize by getting the best gear from both PvE and PvP that's a choice, not being forced.

    Are you talking about the Codex trinket? You could get that before being rank 5. Let alone 8... lol

    Why am I forced to PvE to Hammerknell to get a weapon I need in PvP?

    OP probably means the R8 Gear + Synergy Crystal. The Order of the Eye trinket is the best as far as I can see and can be obtained through PvE dailies.

    Raid1 gear needs a Synergy Crystal.

    I spent 30 plat on some accurate runes and it was the best pvp decision I've ever made. Mages are parry/dodge beasts when you run at 24 hit from an offhand dagger.

    Once hammerknell is on farm status and people are rolling around in orange weapons from there we will see a big change in PVP attitudes towards PvE gear. For right now though P8 gear is pretty sick and much more obtainable, so people complain about it.

    While I agree, OP, that BiS PVE items being pvp items is wrong, PVP'ers have to do a lot of PVE to get every best item. Not for gear, but for augment/stuff.
    Burning powerstones, potions and the like... Prices varies from server to server, but you can easily spend 2-4 plats an hour. While having close to no income from PVP.

    Sure, you don't have to run dungeons or stuff to make some plats, but you still have to gather stuff or AoE grind mobs, which is still PVE.
