    Default PvP is great fun!

    when you are meleeing with a pure am wizard (elven, lv 20) , and with a nice group of friends/ whatever random level 10s are in your lobster.

    HIGHLIGHTS-
    I killed [level20mnkfriend] with melee! bwahahahaha!! (my mabar cloak procced a pk xD)

    some AA killed one of my sorc friends, but also depleted most of his stone! and also forgot FoM. and didnt save against dc 42. He stood there while i killed him with a skiver (my friend snuck in a few blows with her awesome weapons: superior potency VI club and greenblade). then we had a good laugh buffing as much as possible, then trying to beat each other to death (we were halfway done, then my barb guildy came over and 2 shoted us)

    i killed several random level 10s around the pit, gave a good laugh to my friends to see them running frantically away from the skiver-wielding wizard 8D

    a certain rogue lv 10 was certain he could kill me, even sending me deriding tells. So... i meleed with him, and out dpsed him, and incapped him, then danced his incapped body [:<, ok maybe it was the stoneskin/fireshield/coldshield/mindthrust procs that did it, but still!

    i found a certain toon famous for having unbeatable ac, but hed tred! lv 5, but still resiliant to my all-powerful skiver somehow (curse you towershields), and wearing nasty infested armor too. i got him down eventually :]

    I played a game of "tag" with a guildy FvS. His wings vs. my shadowalk and irresistable dance! i got im eventually

    Which is exactly how pvp should be. Bad wizards die to everything, good wizards kill everything. Much like quake and railgun right?

    Given the fact that PVP actually adjust things down... *shrug* I'm wondering if your DC is really the used DC.

    I know for a fact that your listed DR is not what is used.

    I actually had my first venture into PvP pit today cos I was bored (damn you cove, from hell's heart, I stab at thee!!).

    My level 20 monk vs. a 17 wiz.....

    Wiped the floor with me He kept bouncing around like there was a pogo stick up his WF back uhhh 'evacuation receptacle' and I couldn't get a hit in. From above it must have looked like Benny Hill vs. Skippy.

    Anyhoo, interesting experience, but I think casters will be the best in there....Best I go back to hitting those non-jumping orthons

    Not always, you see many very experienced pvp'ers with clerics/fvs running around nuking the blub out of casters.
    And a nice damage build does also stand a chance. Remember, con isn't a dumb stat!

    Don't worry about it, someone else will kill you even if he doesn't

    And how high are your saves, exactly?

    Oh and btw..

    1. Wizard (or sorcerer) enters pit
    2. Wizard (or sorcerer) sees other wizards (or sorcerers).
    3. Mad casterfight.
    4. Level 4 bard becomes collateral damage, logs onto 20 favored soul (or arcane archer), kills both/all wizards (or sorcerers).
    5. Favored soul/arcane archer logs out, wizards (or sorcerers) go to grind for eardweller and ioun stones, pit becomes empty.
    6. Repeat.

    Better than action movies because there's no plot!

    You must not be on Sarlona. While not as prevalent of late, the unmentionable one brings plenty of plot, drama, and dialogue to the Lobster's brawling pit...and anyone unlucky enough to still have general chat on in the Harbor can "hear" it...

    You killing me with (fill in the blank with your classes ability) is cheap!!! That doesnt count!!! Its lame that your class can do (ability) from accross the room!!!

    I used to hose down the pit with slayer arrows on fairly regular intervals, which usually coincided with general chat being taken over by bawling about PVP.

    Reading some of that stuff makes me think I am in lake of ill omen in EQ1 again...
    Advocating repeated nerfs in the name of "balancing the game" then complaining about how DDO is moving away from D&D, is a direct contradiction in logic - D&D 3.5 (what DDO is based on) is not a balanced game. We can either have a balanced clone MMO with homogenized classes, or we can have a D&D game. We cant have both.
