Veteran Ranks

pokrakpokrak Member UncommonPosts: 111
I loved ESO but there were two major problems with it.
Lack of good skill based pvp... that will be partly fixed with battlegrounds[??]
and Veteran Ranks grind.
Are Veteran Ranks still there in game?

    Veteran ranks have been gone for a long time. They are replaced by the Champion point passives system.

    As to BG PVP, the power gaps based on gear and champion points will be there. They're not doing GW-like normalized character stats for the BGs.

    Actually BGs are CP free. So its just gear.

    Any graphical, audio, or gameplay restrictions not seen in other mmos but found in FFXIV can be blamed on one thing.

    It's a bit grindy but they do it on a diminishing returns basis. That is, the first 300 points or so come very fast and after that it gets a bit slower.

    Once you go beyond the current usable cap (600 now and 630 in June) you can still accumulate more for future use but it then becomes extremely grindy... sort of pointless really since you only get benefits from CP up to the current cap.

    The absolute max number is 3600 CP, BTW.

    I hope so. I prefer longer more tactical fights. Ir's also why I like Cyrodiil's no CP campaigns. Triple proccing will still be an issue though.

    Not in the next patch. They already did a a small nerf with the Homestead patch when they made all the gear-based procs unable to crit.

    I only have a triple-proc set-up with my stamsorc: viper + red mountain + velidreth. I kind of like proc sets in general but I can definitely see the reason for frustration with them when all 3 go off together and someone gets killed by that spike.
