PvP Gear Normalization?

by on Aug.13, 2012, under RvR and PvP

You heard me, Trion is going to be experimenting with gear/stat normalization in Warfronts and Conquest, this Tuesday 8/14 @ 4pm PDT. This is kind of huge news on the PvP front. What this means is all gear for all players in a warfront or conquest match, will be the same (stat wise). Will the fun factor go up with everyone the same level playing field gear wise? I would say YES, but that is just me. On the other hand, this may de-value the gear progression that some people enjoy when playing their characters. At any rate, the idea has been dropped and the testing will begin, what do you think of going to a system like this? To see all the details visit the Rift community page:

Some hints of new PvP gear are showing up on the public test forums. According to “Daglar”, Rift PvP’ers can expect the next tier of PvP gear in patch 1.9. This should also include new visuals as well and maybe some other PvP additions were hinted at. See the quotes below and visit the thread “Any news on the release of the next tier of PvP gear?

1.9 is still the planned release of the next tier of gear.


There are artists working on new visuals. The new weapons look amazing.
