Is Trion finally trying to answer the prayers of RvR and PvP players? Maybe so, as it seems something big is in the works for Rift PvP. Trion is asking for testers, lots of testers, to help test out a yet to be named new PvP feature. Get all the info at the official Rift forums, seems like a great time to be PvP’ing in Rift!
It's time to rally, denizens of Telara! Whet your steel and ready your arrows. Light the fires, sound the drums, and cry havoc. Let slip the dogs of war!
An exciting new PvP feature will be hitting PTS next week, and we will need warm bodies. LOTS of warm bodies. And of course, cold bodies that lay twisted and contorted, gripping their weapons in one last attempt to redeem their very... sorry I digress.
We need you, and we need lots of you. Go big or go home. Your rallying cries should part the skies and sunder the very earth beneath the enemy's feet. Under the might of your legions the world shall tremble!
And in return?
The obliteration of your foes as you battle for control and honor, resulting in glory in its ultimate form. #Winning!
Mirror, Mirror, on the wall, this sounds exciting, but is that all? No, there is yet more exciting news. YOU, the battle hardened, shall a title choose.
All of you will be able to post your suggestions for a new title that will be awarded for testing this new PvP feature! The devs will then choose the sickest one of them all.
Gnaw your bacon, grip that mouse, chug your MEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAADDDDDDDD!, and stay glued to the screen for more information forthcoming. Because it is coming...
An odd user on the official Rift forums has been spreading numerous riddles of sorts hinting toward various things coming in Rift (or, that is the speculation). The most interesting thing is the user is named “3 3228466 787″, which when translated using phone number buttons reads “3 faction pvp” Let the dream storming commence, many people are guessing as to what is to come and most certainly seems to be at least something big in the Rift PvP or RvR world. See all the threads below, the first being the one posted in the Rift PvP forums:
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.
No I won’t post them here
Strange things are afoot. Watch the skies.
