Just wanted to let anyone know here that was thinking about trying Rift pvp since conquest releases next week what you are getting yourself into. I disliked this game and cancelled long ago but was having a moment where I wanted to pvp badly after playing GW2 beta so I resubbed and this was my first time pvping in Rift really.
First to say to the fans your not going to like what i have to say. Sorry but coming from DAOC and WAR i was used to seeing a lot of c/c but man....Rift by far is terrible in every single regard to pvp. Its a complete gear grind even with taking the 100% vet rewards for favor and prestiege. I played on Faeblight with a 50 with 4 pieces of tier 1 pvp gear and the matches were completely lop sided. I play a defiant and even with proper teamwork and ninja taking objectives we would still just get farmed by rank 40 tier 3 pvp premades 500 to like 100. The warfronts were completely one sided at least on my server battlegroup.
I played a bard healing and support soul mostly and I would just get pulled into a zerge and farmed or constantly get critted and stunned from a warrior titan strike for 2.5 health when I only had 6k. It was probably the most misrable experience Ive ever experienced in a game for pvp. CC in Rift is a serious joke and you will constantly have to deal with it and when you use your break free skills they will just follow up with another form of cc and its pointless to use.
If you are thinking about trying to get into Rift pvp all I can say is if you do not have a premade or tier 3 gear good luck because your in for one rough ride. I cancelled my sub today after only a week and a half of grinding warfronts and I can honestly say this is the first game ever in my life that actually made me rage and quit. Im usually a laid back older guy but this games pvp system is by far the worst experience in a mmorpg to date. Anyways attack me if you like maybe I did it all wrong but I dont think there is anything but grinding warfronts and being slaughtered anyways with rift. I just wanted others to know like myself who wasted 15 bucks thinking conquest would be fun but not even making it to it next week because the pvp grind is horrible and rank 40 players can 2 and 3 shot you . My two cents.......
