Warhammer RvR Tier 1

I like the "join all" feature they added, but I've never even seen the greenskins RvR area for lvl 1-11. I've only been in one of the Elf RvR and the rest have all been Chaos'. Is it the same on all the realms?

You know what I love best about Warhammer? PVP leveling... so much fun. I can PVP all day and gain loot/exp/money, all from PVPing!

Gotta love that

I definitely like loot/exp/gold from pvp. I have scavaging on my Shaman so I get to dig through their corpses for loot too, lol.
I wasn't asking the name of the scenario. I just want to fight it a time or two. Seems like the only one I get in is Chaos vs Empire.

Wonder when the classes they left out will be added? I'd like a little more to the crafting too.

game uninstalled, account cancelled.
Shoulda called this game rangedhammer, as melee classes are all but useless, and im not gonna pay to beta test and wait for class balance to be adjusted.

The thing about this game is that it scales with server population. On a balanced, high pop server you will get short SC queues with a good mix of races/classes. My server is one such server and I have leveled to Rank 30, Renown rank 29 purely thru PvP.

However, even on a balanced, healthy server you will see population anomalies. For instance, If you are in T1 while the majority of the server has moved into T2 or T3 (T3 is where the majority is on my server), you will see the types of SC populations you describe. Basically, you are playing against people's alts.

I agree that this would be frustrating, especially if you are a T1 toon where T3 world RvR is blowing up (my server). You are kinda left out of the game until you hit 40 with everyone else.

Agreed. There is no problem if you take the time to learn your class mechanics and skills. Ranged DPS definitely doesn't take as much brainpower, that's why you see so many of them.

Haha this makes me giggle. Bye.

Guess they should've named WoW - World of Raidcraft then?

Not necessarily true, you must be thinking Bright Wizard/Sorcerer. Try playing an assault specced Shadow Warrior, you definitely have to be on top of your game if you want to last more than 4 seconds in open RvR.

Point taken, I was indeed thinking of BW and Sorc since they make up 95% of the ranged DPS. Engineer, Magus and SW do take more brains. I really am sick of all the BW and Sorc I see, way too overpopulated. I always hope they will blow themselves up with their spells and I'm there to see it.

95%? Over exaggerate much?

On the server I play on, in a standard scenario battle, I typically see 2 of each of these classes on each side. I don't see 5 of them. I see more archers/Squig herders.

I'm running 2 toons. A lvl 10 shaman when it's just me, and when I'm playing with my fiance I use a DoK I have to lvl 12. So both are healer types, but it's melee healer and ranged. Can't decide which I like better, but I have an easier time soloing champs with the DoK so might have to catch up and run my shaman with her and solo the DoK.

I play a melee and am Rank 36 now. While I do feel there are a number of things that should be changed in the game most of the problems I have seen can be countered if people had half a brain. When I play with my guild group I win most of the time, but in PUG's I get rolled. This is a clear indicator IMO that when you play with people who are not morons the game can be very different, even as melee. A good example was my last game last night as I watched 3 Destr players all on an Ironbreaker while 3 healers healed him from about 20 yards away. This was when I /camp

If you are talking about brains, try playing a healer. I played several different classes and healers have it rough in WH. You gotta twitch and think at the same time just to stay alive.. find places to hide, maintain LoS and heal your tanks while dodging burst dps classes. Definitely the hardest class to play well.

So BW and Sorcerers make up 95% of the ranged DPS on your server? Care to share your server name so I can check it out? I think that is an overexaggeration. In fact, I will put money on it.
