pvp staff prices is ridiculous

Postby Hexkaline » Fri Sep 19, 2014 6:43 pm

How come 2h staves cost 2900 marks.. when 1h sword + shield cost 1900... this is an unfair advantage sw and justicar has on those low lvl mw which is so annoying.. getting hit 1300 when you deal 400 only cuz of a ridiculous price.. explain that to me

Come back to me after you factor in the additional gem costs needed to load the shield up with 4 additional gems, that the 2H doesn't need.

Perfectly legitimate, considering the 1H only gives you half of the stat investment points of the 2H, so to compensate you need 4 more gems for the shield, that can be a significant cost adder.

Apparently you have no idea how important gems are ingame whether you're into PvE or PvP

Did i said its useless? I only say that even consisering the gems it is unfair to pay more... they should lower it or create more stuff so we can variate build... mage are stuck with crap weapon considerring sw and justicar... im talking abot t8 weapon which mean low lvl also meaning low gems(unless you spend300 box)so gems arent a great deal... and if you look at t12 t16 staves price is equal to 1h+shiels only t8 cost more...

You DO know that WMs also have the option to use 1H weapons, right? And that many justis also prefer 2H weapons and have to pay for them, right? Why then do you think that WMs are being singled out?

Damn cant you read.. t14 prices are equal 2h=1h+shiels.. t16 2h= 1h+shield

T8( this is the important parts ) 1h+shield=1900
2h=2900 do the math

Here is the short answer Hex...its T8 PvP gear...nobody else notices because nobody else cares...

But to your point about fairness:

The price difference is the same for the WM and Justi...and considering both can use either the 1H or the 2H...its not an advantage for either one. Sure you can argue it might be a cost advantage for a SW....really it is a choice limitation for the SW. Either way in principle its not unfair because a WM can just as easily use the 1H option.
Alternatively, Maybe the numbers for a 2H wielder are overpowering, so to balance it Venan increased the T8 2H cost compared to the 1H... (pure speculation there)

2. 1000 marks difference is piddly...

Finally (and again)...its T8 PVP gear...big deal...your better off upgrading with standard PvE gear anyway at that tier.

Chances are Venan probably didn't pay too much attention to T8 gear because they knew it was never an end...only a stepping stone....so I don't see what your complaint is...if you really think its unfair, then have your Mage go 1H, problem solved....and enjoy the low cost advantage for the 1 week you actually use that T8 gear before upgrading...
