I’m still working on ranking up my Warrior in PVP – currently about halfway through Prestige Rank 3 to Rank 4.
Prior to the announcement of the 1.2 Alpha Patch notes, I was considering rolling a Marksman Rogue for an alt, because I thought it would be fun to roll a kiting spec after playing melee the past two games and players have said MM is underpowered. Now that Marksman is getting buffed a bit in 1.2, I’m less motivated to play it. On top of that, there seems to be a shortage of healers in PVP, so rolling another DPS won’t help that issue.
My only alt to date is a level 14 Justicar Cleric, who I shelved to finish leveling my Warrior from 40 to 50. I have played melee healers in multiple games (LOTRO Captain, WAR Warrior Priest, Aion Chanter, Allods Online Melee Healer, WoW Prot Pally) and I tend to love melee healer mechanics. Therefore, Justicar is an appealing spec to me. However, Clerics are very strong in Rift, and I generally have more fun playing specs that are viewed as underpowered – it tends to be challenging and I like to debunk myths and inaccurate perceptions.
I am interested in playing an alt, so I have some thinking to do about what to roll.
