    Default All Warfronts Open!



    We are happy to reopen the majority of the Warfronts that you've all been asking for! Go forth and gank, stalk, murdelize, lay traps for, jump, mangle, evade, and generally cause good-natured mayhem in PvP!


    The full list of Warfronts now available:
    • Assault on the Bronze Tomb
    • Blighted Antechamber
    • Black Garden
    • The Codex
    • Ghar Station Eyn
    • Karthan Ridge
    • Library of the RuneMasters
    • Whitefall Steppes: Escalation
    (Conquest mode and Port Scion have been phased out)



    SHOULD I PVP? HECK YES!

    Many of you may be wondering if you should try Warfronts in general. Never PvP'd before? No worries, everyone makes great cannon fodder! Just kidding... doing a bit of homework and studying the art of PvP can open up a whole new rewarding aspect of RIFT for you!

    WrenTheBlurry and I have proven in livestreams that even potatoes* can have fun in PvP (ok, ok, I am a potato, she has evolved to asparagus).

    Luckily for all of us, a great many players have made a great many PvP guides, ranging from the simple to the complex. We have gathered just a FEW of these below. Some of them date back a ways, but the general principals don't change much.

    If you know of more general or specific PvP or Warfront guides, or if you decide to create your own, please post them to this forum thread!

    Now we only need a few more players, so evening pvp is not among the same 30 players.

    I did get a little psyched out here.

    All of (most of) the warfronts*!

    *Port Scion sold separately.

    Port Scion is dead and gone. It is no longer counted among the warfronts.

    First: what she said. There is a certain Russian premade they try to farm everyone, every evening and happened a lot of time matchmaking put groups TOGETHER and not against, when 3 BIS 20-30K DPS assassins open from stealth I wish I could be somewhere else. 4-6 (+4 randoms) geared to tooth players against 5-10 randoms. Because teams recently don`t even fill up. I don`t want to spend my free time in warfront like this, so I usually log out and watch a movie instead of being a free blood thirsty proc.

    Second: once in a life make pvp players happy and listen to us. Once! Nobody wants Tomb back. This is a bad design in an mmo with tanks and healers. I have 3!!! wins altogether and like 20 ties. If scaling up port scion is takes too much effort, just remove all npcs and we are happy to fight for the stones. Scion is classic, interesting, there are so many ways to win. Even a small group or a strong individual can win it. Even if the 2 teams are not balanced, but weakest can win with brain work.

    Port Scion or riot!

    Or put a token to the shop so we can opt out 1 warfront, I don`t even mind if for credit. I`m happy to buy it and opt out that ********** forever.

    I think un-nerfing Clerics would bring back a large chunk of players.

    Atleast there are some other prems who are trying to go against that russian prem :P But matchmaking is just crazy nowadays atleast on EU. No challenging games anymore, its either you're zerging or you get zerged. Sad.
    Also Bronze tomb would be fine its just full of bugs and this makes it unbearable. Like unbreakable stuns in that poison pool, hmm yummy

    It is "dead" according to whom? Was there a polling of the playerbase, the pvp players more specifically (like other games have the habit of doing in such cases), where "dead" was given out as the state of that WF by those who actually played it or... was this simply another decision taken despite of the players' opinion for reasons... unknown? Personally I didn't enjoy Port Scion very much and I can think of a few issues with that WF but I certainly still "count" it as a warfront. For you to bluntly say "it no longer counts" - are you speaking for all of the pvp community, all the devs that created and maintained that instance, or who?

    Speaking of reasons, why is it [most of] the WFs are back all of a sudden after so many months during which we were even told by a dev the plan was to rotate them every major patch; are these WFs really back, or being rotated out - or, in your terminology, "phased out" (whatever that means exactly...)? Why the change of plans now?... honestly curious about that.

    Thanks for your time.

    RIP hard-won achievement points from playing Port Scion over many years (along with all those CQ points I already lost)

    I know people hated Port Scion because it tended to be longer and more difficult, and because it has (gasp) PVE mobs, but that also made it more interesting. I will miss it.

    Wait...what? Why was CQ and PS phased out? I knew about some balancing difficulties in CQ but there has to be a better reason than that.

    You know for me and randoms doesn't matter which group we will go against. Guaranteed face-wrecking. For balance purposes: on EU side all groups with more than 3 players should be restricted for the time being. Matchmaking rarely put groups against each other, but against randoms. (and there is one more strong group they running 4-5 in a group)

    I find this odd. In my opinion, Karthan Ridge: Domination was far better than the normal Karthan Ridge, and one of the best warfronts overall. I would have never removed it.
