how much do you know about Xar's PvP encounters with the biggies out there? you mention Saya - what do you know about their battles?Maizara wrote:So.. tell me, who can hold a candle to Xar or will be able to long as he keeps playing?Laurel wrote:afaik Irk is not even remotely close to many other old chars in terms of "years spent", but he still managed to out-grow a significant number of old farts ... same with Zin and his toons or even Saya/Freya like chars ...

just grow in a relatively safe (inagressive) guild and you can grind your ass off for quite a few months = quite big myth
don't come with that crap about "you will never reach them" - it's simply not true
if you fail on that topic it doesn't mean others do as well ...
Thats right... no one in game is even remotely close, but your completely right! How stupid of me and my failing ways!
And thus you just proved my point, how long has Irk been going at it? And he still is below characters that aren't even playing anymore and havent in a few years? How far below Xar was Saya I wonder?
This way of gaming is highly unattractive to new players who play for a bit then realize they will never be able to reach that limit without many many years of time and effort. Hell even in most MMO RPG's it takes less then a year to hit the top level most being a few months, after that its based upon your pvp stats, wealth, guild status, items.
Your stuck in the past which is unfortunate for a game that needs to keep whats attractive and move ahead with the times to keep new players.
Laurel was always way smaller then Saya/Freya/Bofur/etc. (no - never even remotely close to myth) and still - they decided either to kill off her even smaller friends or required the old goblin lord room (with block) to succeed; I count that as a win against the clearly most PvP focused bunch ever in this game
I remember a certain Nazgul became one as apprentice (in old system)? was he then less feared when he grew a little then he would be when he reached old champion? nope
you can be a smallfry and still compete in the PvP battles with biggies - just learn how to do it and stop whining
arguments about doing "half the quests" (please ... take my wife ...) and failing to grind with a monk/ranger are also ... out of the butt to be honest
or do you think any of the biggies stopped questing with "half of the quests" done?
how many chars did Zin create in the last few years that reached myth - 3? 4? more?
sheeeeesh, dudes ... again - only because YOU fail to achieve something doesn't mean it's impossible
maybe it's just NOT FOR YOU (just like endless grinding macros are not for me)
when you go play WoW noone tells you that you are EVER gonna kill the real end-content! actually there is only VERY few that can do it before a new expansion comes out and old end-content is outdated
same with Aion
same with PvP in those games
all you said so far is:
I want to reach the same as others did, but I can't within a few weeks so take away from them what I can't reach
I vote for stat-cap at the level of 400 (for each stat) - I wonder why none of you would be satisfied
