Just hit 40 last night. Now that I can spread points out further…I have gone Assassin/Riftstalker/Nightblade. My final blow crits for about 1300 and I have ways to avoid death all together in PvP & PvE. I absolutely love the Soul aspect of this game…I can switch to my Saboteur/Bard/Infiltrator on the fly. FYI for an Sabs out there…invest 38 points into the tree…you get choking gas bomb which is a silence…you will be able to mow down healers (or most other squishy classes) because they won’t be able to do anything for 8 seconds. It’s killer in Black Gardens where it’s a clusterfu*kfest.

I even had fun rolling a cleric the other day and getting him to 15. But I doubt I will level that to max. I don't even know if I will worry about my warrior beyond 20 either. Probably won't post back till I hit 50 and PvP hard and see how the 'prestige' grind is. I’m curious though because you can get your 90% & 110% mounts via one of the PvP vendors. Which is good because I don’t have sh*t for platinum PvPing my 1st 35 lvls haha. And since 35 I only have 10 platinum…which just diminishes any time I have to upgrade skills so I haven’t gone above 15 plat yet.

I'll definately be playing this game till they raise the lvl cap (not a fan of excessive grinding above level caps above 50).

Lastly, I was in Gloamwood gankin’ all the 20 somethings yesterday. I was there for an hour ganking any nublet I saw. I :love: getting yelled @ tons of fun and tons of LOLs.

PvP has occured on a PvP server and I approve of this statement! I will be doing this with out a shadow of a doubt later on!

Ganking lowbies is like eatting deep fried bacon covered in chocolete. You probably shouldnt do it but its so god damn delicious from time to time.

Congratulations, you are one of the reasons I don't like online games very much. You might think they had it coming seeing they logged in on a PvP server but if you really think that you're missing the point entirely.

I understand your situation and yes for some, PvP server's can be very harsh but its just the way of the game. Trion has endorsed that style of play since they had stated that if you play on a PvP server, you not only consent to those posibilities but are activly looking to participate in them. Which can be seen...

http://forums.riftgame.com/showthread.php?61579-Post-Beta-6-On-Rifts-Raids-PvP-and-Damage…

So is it a dickish move to do? You bet! Can it be frustrating? Sure! If you are in a guild, ask them for backup. If you are not in a guild, ask for help from others that are in the zone.

Although it may seem imbalanced, a level 50 is not invincible and can be taken down by three level 25's. Why do I know this? I was level 23 and a level 50 was in our area. I attacked them and as I beat on him it took me somewhere around 40 seconds to work down his health to almost killable... Then he started to unload on me and I died... regardless my point still stands.

Well good thing their is PvE servers, I prefer them for raiding/progression etc without the hassles of PvP. :)

I'm just waiting for digital download to finish off Steam, will make a character on PvE as well as PvP, played EverQuest for around 11 years, time to try another game lol. :toast:

Doesnt matter if they had it coming. Its a PvP server and if you dont want to be ganked then dont play on a pvp server. Thats mainly the point of the server.

People will do it to you so why not do it back. I used to think the same way as you but that quickly changed.

eh, thats why I rolled on a PVE server. Yeah being ganked by a person 30 levels higher is funny the first couple of times but it gets old pretty fast. Maybe I am just old fashioned though ;D

Ruining someones PvE experience on a PvP server definitely worth while. If you want to learn PvP, I would suggest playing EVE online for a solid year. You'll learn the ropes of PVP very quickly.

Simply put, PvP, is PvP. There isn't really any rules, just common sense. But when there is common sense, there is also common rudeness, common stupidity, common (insert here). If you roll on a PvP server and complain about being killed by opposing faction players who are much higher level, then you definitely need a reality check.

Thats what PvP is all about, killing the other doods, low level or not.

It's one thing to gank it's another completely to grief, putting nubs in their place is the duty of high levels on PVP servers, griefing and dumping all over their play experience not so much, all things in moderation IMO. But if you don't want to deal with that being a possibility go PVE, or an RP server, where their all too busy larping to gank each other.

Level 50 finally.

PvP is really not that different @ 50. My build is more viable than it was in my 20's & 30's but honestly it has not changed THAT much. Plus many people use the same build I planned out before the game released haha!

Debating on whether or not I want to roll a Mage now just to have. This game will die out the second SW:TOR gets released (if not before) so I don't know if I want to invest another 200 hours to hit 50 again. Plus if this game get's a Max Level increase...I won't want to grind multiple characters to said new cap.

Mages are pretty glass cannon-y but they pretty much melt face in the 50 game. I can kill them with my rogue with ease but I wouldn't mind having one just to destroy people.

Assassin/Marksman - Assassin/Sabotuer range melee combos are really really good. So stoked builds I planned out, others did too...and they work well in PvP.

There are tons of expert mode dungeons to do. Some of the lower level dungeons can be set to difficult settings. These add some new mechanics to existing bosses and add bosses to the instances. Also all the instances are seperated into two teir's. So you have to finish the first tier of difficult instances to get properly geared for for the 2nd tiered ones. Then after that there are 10 man raid rifts which will be getting patch in this Thursday at 8am with the official 1.01 patch.

After that there are 20 man raid rifts.

Also I tanked Deepstrike Mines last night as a riftstalker (Rogue). First pull ended up in a wipe because the healers werent prepared. After that we did fine but it tooks us three tries to kill the last boss. I blame this on my spec not being quite full yet but should be better once I get a few more levels. Riftstalker tanking is viable but things need to be a little bit more perfect then they would if there was a warrior or cleric tank.

I have RS as one of my second classes on my Bard for a my solo build, I do run instances with it, it's funny as hell to show up to a group as a squishy with over 5k health and have them think your the tank. Over all it's a pretty beast class and is also viable for damage, but it does need a buff, as it can have hate generating problems IMO, though I may have just been grouped with a crappy tank.

I think you had a crappy riftstalker tank. There should be no issues with threat generation since Guardian Stance increases threat gen by 50% and we have lots of single target and AOE threat generating abilities.

So i think it may have been your riftstalkers skill rotation or maybe they forgot to get into Guard Stance.

Wouldn't surprise me, I also love the ability to stealth and disable enimies, makes it great from grabbing quest items without having to fight every mob you see.

The way the graphics appear, it reminds me a lot of WAR. This game is pretty beastly, and I've only just started. Went with a Cleric and am a Cabalist/Inquisitor/Purifier. Probably going to lose a lot of my life on this game :p

Might I suggest dropping cabalist entirely. Inq/Sent/X is very good. Inquisitor gets the best AoE, and much better single target spells than the cab. Also good heals. Cabs are super gimped imo

Justicar / Shaman / Druid with focus on Justicar and Shaman is pretty beastly too, but yeah Cabalist is an okay support class, and a decent PVPer, but over all there are many other classes that are better.

It's WoW 3.0

However at least they admit it, which is a lot more than all the other modern MMO companies can do. They steal all concepts from EQ, AO, WoW and act like they've come out with something new.

Alas I've played too many of these games to really bother with yet another clone. Forgetting the controls, the feel and the graphics, the linear line progresson and the a-typical end game is nothing something I can endure anymore.

I do have to chuckle at all the persons defending gank PVP, or PVP in general - like they are some sort of elitist culture. Rarely has an MMORPG offered PVP where you could honestly claim you have skills. Hotkey timing is not skills, it's repetition. Go win a team based shooter tournament, then claim skills.

Carebares and Gankers alike, you're just extremes of the same spectrum. That's why they have to designate servers for one or the other. Which is fine, but MMO developers are f(((((( lazy. They choose PVE or PVP as a focus, and code mechanics for one, then try and 'tweak' for the other. This causes weird balancing issues and just ruins player experience all around.

I thought when Rift presented itself as a solid micro evolution in the world of MMOs that it would come with the polish of WoW and the wisdom of ten + years of industry knowledge. Instead it came with a self-deprecating attitude and 'honesty' angle so it could excuse it's lack of creativity.

Haha, I see that this place also has the typical "I have 20 years of MMORPG experience under my belt" mentality. You may say that it takes just repetition for PvP but I guess you could apply that to real world competitions? Swimming doesn't really take skill, its just the same repetition of swimming a certain stroke. See how stupid that sounds? It's pretty much the same thing.

I am sorry if this game doesn't cater to your obviously superior tastes but it does for everyone else. Hopefully a game will come out in the future that will satisfy your tastes.
