    You'd have some 40 chickens, I guess. Unless you roll on an Open sever.

    That explains it. I'm on two open rvr servers, Praag and Dark Crag.


    Is it the same with rank 30s in t2?

    I believe you can go have two tiers open to you on those servers. Core player talking here, because that shit sounds terrible.

    EDIT: Depends on our Inf progress in Tier 3. I'd probably just wait until I get kicked out.

    It...it isn't.

    It's par for the course on Praag/Dark Crag. The cutoff is 32 I believe. But you'll get a ton of rank 30-31 players just acting like douchebags.

    You mean to tell me that t1 rvr on Core doesn't have rank 20-21 players rolling in and being dicks to people in Festenplaz?

    In Core you are limited to the leveling curve. It's a little over ten levels per bracket. Overlap, of course. But a level 20 would be a chicken and get one-shot by any player in Tier 1.

    Eh, I think I made you guys think that rank 30s (as in, 30-39) were in t2. I meant to say that players with ranks 30-31 were in t2.


    Edit: Nevermind, open rvr servers are as shitty as I thought they were.

    No. You chicken at 12 (T1), 22 (T2) and 32 (T3).

    Remind me never to roll on those servers.

    Remind me to transfer my characters to Core servers, because from reading this I think the game would be much more enjoyable on Core than on Open RvR.

    I sort of signed up to the Open RvR because a buddy of mine did the same when we were transfering from the now-dead RP-RvR servers (Chaos Wastes and Reikland, I think). I just never really read the whole ruleset in its entirety.

    I'm seriously considering transfering characters to Core, though I don't know what that will cost me.

    Yeah, I'm in a similar situation. I like how populated and active Dark Crag is at most hours, but the rank 40's in Tier 3 can be really annoying.

    Plus most Dark Crag players are really stupid.

    Hahaha! Nice one!

    Sev: Your gameplay is the most heavily yomi based around. Usually you look for characters that allow you to force guessing situations for big dmg. Even if the guess is mathematically nowhere near in your favor lol. You're happiest when you have either a 50/50, 33/33/33 or even a 75/25 situation to go crazy with. And you will take big risks to force those situations to come up.

    Be brave, it ain't so bad once you hit 40 (my sig is way out of date, been 40 for a week or two now). The way people talk on the various message boards, you might think that you just OMGWTFASPLODE the minute you step into T4 oRvR, and it's just not the case. Pit of Shades / Rain of Fire seriously is bloody well everywhere though. If you can manage to turn on effects in oRvR, your survivability will go way up. If you spend most of your time PUGing, now is the time to start putting out feelers to guilds that are active in T4. Your enjoyment of the game will increase significantly if you're running with a regular group on voice comms.

    Dude, you should be leaving chickens for your DoKs / WPs! Only they can turn 7500 points of chicken damage into a 7500-point AoE heal. :winky:

    Nice. I don't have a screenshot, but I took out at least three or four r40 Order chickens who were watching Order siege Mandreds with a hellblaster cannon on the very top turret a week or two ago. I got half a renown level out of it.

    As for the other stuff:

    I have an alt WH on Phoenix that I've never started, but I'm already three alts deep in Dark Crag and four deep on Praag. Hence me wanting to transfer rather than start fresh. The highest rank character I have is my WH on Praag, who's rank 32. The rest are floating between 15 and 24.

    I'll just start afresh, I guess.

    It doesn't seem as bad this time around for me. Maybe it's because I'm resigned to dying, I'm a slayer after all. But it may also be because I'm a smarter, more experienced player this time around.

    So messing with the trial I am about ready to throw 15$ into this to give it another try. Only thing is all my characters are listed as ineligible to transfer to another server, I am hoping this is because I am on the free trial thing. Would suck to have to reroll on badlands. :|

    I would like to state that back in the day in Daoc Ranged classes fucked shit up, and after some time were eventualy balanced. You just gotta give em some time. Eventualy as a mdps or even tank class you will see the love and actualy feel useful in keep sieges.

    T3 has decent RVR in the upper half of the bracket, but terrible PVE. T4 you pretty much ignore RVR until you're 40, but the levels just seem to fly compared to T3. Maybe it's because both my WL and my buddy's WH got some AoE abilities, but all of the sudden we were farm monsters. I'd run through a camp of +2 kill collector mobs, dragging them behind a tree, then he'd use his "this ability hits 3 targets" tactic, I'd spam my AoE DoTs and strikes and we'd watch our EXP bar move as the entire group melted. Combined with the kill collector's added bonus we went from 35 to 36 in half an hour, it was silly.

    Oh, and let's not even forget the arena PQ in Black Craig. With a tank and an AoE healer that shit is non-stop experience and influence. Also, the only instance that an MMO has beat CoX in the number of mobs they throw at you, we probably left several gold worth of copper there just because you can't loot corpses fast enough. That PQ forces you to move around simply because two groups' worth of pulls will put so many corpses on screen the engine will stop drawing anything further than 5 feet away from you.

    On the destro is fucking stupid front i present the following story.

    So today I zoned into a IC siege on my black orc. 42 destro, 12 order. I arrive to find everything done in the PQ for both sides, with destro holding the monolith and order holding the temple. So i head to temple and encounter... noone. Just the group of order, i die. So i figure perhaps im just out of sych with the offense. I start moving around the area looking for one. We dont have one. So I ask in general why we are not hitting the temple.

    The response I get is because we need to stop feeding them renown, and by holding the monolith we force them to do something, why should we try and complete the PQ as we only have a shot at one bag, blah blah.

    Apparently pointing out we outnumber them 3:1, even if they took the monolith they do not have enough people to complete the PQ anyway was the wrong thing to say.

    Chat decided to should suicide the temple. So i do, and start calling out numbers of people in it. Usually 2. FINALLY some people get a clue and with a whopping 4 other people the temple is ours. We still fail to kill the general however.

    People are such useless cowards in these games.

    If I was kidnapped, woke up in a lab, told they were going to replace my vocal cords with those of Tony Jay, and lock me in a sound booth until the day I die I would look those bastards right in the eye and say "Alright you sons of bitches lets do this. This one is for the children."

    Order is equally stupid. The first time I participated in IC must've been some miraculous once-in-a-lifetime occurance, because despite not being able to kill the Stage II lord we won Stage I four times. Two warbands, each taking their own side, and despite some iffy coordination we eventually came through.

    Second time though... second time I log in, there's like 5 different sub-party sized private warbands and no one is doing PQs, everyone is just fighting Destro in the middle. I wanted to bitchslap every single person.
