    Default PvP 3-Day Battle Royale on PTS - 06/14-06/16 @ 4:30PM PDT! (11:30PM GMT)

    Whether you're a battle hardened Presitge Rank 6 veteran or just trying your hand in a Warfront for the first time we're working on a number of changes in Update 1.3 to improve your experience and make PvP compelling, engaging, and fun - regardless if you're just starting out or have memorized the names of every healer in your Wargroup!

    It's important that we get your feedback about these changes and it's why over the next three day's we'll be hosting 3 mass PvP play tests.

    With the decision to revert the Valor changes based on player feedback and our observations during yesterday's event we are cancelling the test for today and tomorrow. We received sufficient feedback and data - thank you to everyone who showed up yesterday to participate!

    We encourage those interested to login to PTS PvP at least an hour early so you have enough time to setup your character, hotkeys, and PvP gear to your preference.

    You will be required to create a new character on PTS PvP, existing characters are not able to benefit from the Prestige Rank vendor and would need to manually grind Prestige Rank which is not possible in this time-frame.

    An NPC will be available in both Guardian and Defiant tutorials to take you directly to your capital city, merchants are located near the Porticulums in each capital.

    Each evening's event will likely run no more than a couple of hours and involve running multiple warfronts as we listen to your feedback and monitor the results of the recent changes. We look forward to your constructive feedback and helping us to thoroughly test these changes on PTS!

    We look forward to seeing you there - for more information about how to access the Public Test Shards or discuss the latest changes for 1.3 check out the Public Test Forums!

    Already know the end result.

    You'd be better of reverting the current changes and asking for feedback then! Instead of fixing the mistake you are making with the 1.3 patch you can fix the mistakes you made with the previous patches.

    its IMPOSSIBLE to kill a rank 6 healer.... much less solo a rank 6 healer as a prestige rank 1 with no pvp gear.......

    If you use break free instead of eatting a 4s stun from a 2-minute-rogue, then you won't die.

    Breakfree the stun, detaunt the rogue, heal, win. Try using your abilities next time.


    Oh, PTS pvp sounds fun. Hope the warrior unnerfs are in by then!

    Are clerics are going to be killable? I mean QQing asside the self heals are out of control....even as a cleric you can't say other wise. Even if you do the only reason you are is cuz you only enjoy feeling like a god in PVP...

    So, wait. Is this your unintentional way of acknowledging healing is rated higher than any other metric in pvp? Though, in all fairness to the green invasion bosses, healing also gets you less favor then dealing damage from a straight up comparison (of course, in the further interest of being fair, this downdrip in favor is easily averted by shooting off a few instant casts and dots while healing).

    Please change the survivability of r6 clerics....
    Please balance the damage output of MM mixed with their escape mechanisms.
    change valor so that being rank 6 doesn't make you a god in pvp.... it makes new players to pvp give up and get frustrated.
    I do believe being rank 6 is an achievement that should be well rewarded, but i think there are better ways to reward r6's rather than making someone virtually unkillable for most classes (excluding MM's ofc).

    Also, can u reduce the DR on snares??? i try to use my roots and knock backs and people are immune like 75% of the times.... kinda dumb. also warrior fears are obnoxious and should be toned down imo..

    Are you going to fix Warrior DPS first so there is a valid metric by which to test damage vs valor?

    Do you know how much work it takes to get R6? We deserve to be gods, if you cant stand it go kill drones in stupid dungeons and s-t-f-u.

    He's simply the poster child of what one type of "pvper" is. There's the pvper who enjoys the challenge of killing other players, then there's the person who simply wants nothing more than to camp a res point for 15 minutes.

    He'd probably be just as happy if the NFL had no salary cap and rules regulating free agency. I mean, who wants to implement a system that supports fun and fair gameplay? ;p

    Put less emphasis on valor and more emphasis on endurance. Problem solved.

    No break free, no shield, 1 heal, no skill. Grats on being bad.
    Let's just thank Christ that they got rid of twinking. It truly lacked any skill to twink.
