If you haven't seen the "improvements" to PvP, brace yourselves.


Trion has obviously never heard of incremental change. Hope you didn't grind to P8 yet.

lol I just got r8, rogue, same day as you I think, Sunday night.

Right now I'm feeling like I paid to have several hundred hours of my time wasted and then get kicked in the balls at the end of it.

You think it is bad?
You still will have equip with better stats, i dont see anything wrong with that.

What i do ask myself, and if someone can asnwer me, is there a valor cap? Someone said in chat chat but i never read anything about it.

Also a question, i want to make a pvp sigil, should i put there like planar essences with valor, or should i used only 2 epic with valor and then 4 other pve essences wihtout planar or still blues also with valor?

Anyone can asnwer me this questions, thx

All the hardcore PVPrs that whined about PVEr's using The R8 gear in raids are the ones that going to be QQing a week after patch when the Q times are up to 1-2 hours because there is no longer any reason for all the PVers to grind ranks. And changing the Words trinket 6 months after realse is just plain bad for trion....i mean really?

This, to me, is another knee jerk reaction by Trion. In all reality all they had to do for WF's was separate by ranks to create a really fast balance solution. In world pvp it's not about balance, it's about me being better then you with better gear so I kick your teeth in. My RL isn't fair and I sure as hell don't expect a game to be either. Blizzard destroyed their game with some of this same logic and I really hope I don't see the same of this coming in the future although sadly I think it is. On the other hand with the amount of negative feedback this is getting maybe another hotfix will come from it as well.

Sadly depsite all the negative feedback (which they completely ignored) they will be pushing these changes through to love tomorrow.

On the bright side they are saying they will be buffing rogues in the near future. But at this point, will it really matter?

Good info fellyn. These changes are stupid and Trion is certainly sticking with their pattern of knee-jerk overreactions.
