Wow pappy13, you're totally of the mark. It's obvious from your posts that you expected and play WAR like it was a PvE game like WoW. Guess what? It isn't! WAR is a PvP game from the get go. Want cool gear with good stats? Go PvP. Want to see gear-look progression as you level? Go PvP. All the best stuff is from Renown and killing players, and if you kept up with RvR, Scenarios and Keep sieges, you wouldn't have any problem maintaining renown equal to your level. PvE in WAR is kinda like PvP in WoW; it's there for a distraction from the core game, which in WAR's case is PvP. I have several toons in their teens and their gear is plenty stated to help in my PvP fun and visually superior to what my toons looked like at level 1.
It wasn't my decision to add PvE stuff into War, that was Mythic. If they are gonna add it, then I'm allowed to review it. That's how it works.
Yes, I understand that it's a PvP centric game, but there are PvE elements to the game as well. You wouldn't expect me to counter claims about the lack of good PvP in WoW by saying that it's a PvE centric game would you? If so there are about a hundred people that will do that for you, but I won't.
The only problem I have with what you just said is that I prefer the Order races and currently Order is getting hammered in RvR. So while someone from the Destruction may have no problem keeping their rlvl up with their character level, it's next to impossible for someone from the Order side. I have been entering the scenario queue almost constantly. I have tried to do some RvR stuff as well. And it's been extremely hard getting destroyed in the scenario's 15 times out of 20. The few that we do manage to win are usually a 251 to 249 affair and not the 450 to 50 affairs I've been on the losing end of on too many occasions.
I dont know what game you are talking about, but t 11... I have already seen tons of cool gear, as rewards and as loot. I have changed my entire look at least three times already.
You can see that all the gear I have aty level 11 has bonus stats, and it was all achieved through PQs, PvE quests and overland loot drops.
