Meh. I managed to hit rank 2 but the sight of 90000 prestige needed just to hit rank 3 really puts me off doing anymore. How insane does the grind get at later levels?

It's bad.  Only made better by the event weekends.  Fortunately, I only had to do it against rank 6 people.  I can't imagine starting now with a bunch of rank 8's out there.

Sounds like fun.

I don't think I'll even make 50 for the solo dungeons, let alone bother with pvp.

I'd rather build a new tower in minecraft.

I'm sitting at rank 3 slowly progression, and since I have HK gear I do quite well with only the stock 50 valor now thanks to the Rogue changes.

If you pvp during weekends only you can make steady progression at a rate that feels "right".  If you pvp during weekends and have the prestige/favor pots it goes very fast.

With TOR beta down spent the past 5 days back in Rift using up my favor and prestige pots of f*cking goodness.  Got from 1200 points into rank 7 to 310K, just 140K short now from rank 8.  Prett dam nice favor, prestige and attunement xp with these suckers.  Too bad the bonus weekend was whitefall but games still went prety quick.  I am gonna roll major face when I get the rank 8 daggers and finalize that set.

1.6 can suck me.  Just took a 3400 dmg hit from a mage.  I would accept that if I were rank 2 but as a fully geared rank 8 rogue thats nothing short of retarded.  AGE OF THE MAGE!!

Your thread seems to have made a few friends on the Rift Forums.  My main is a mage and this isn't enough to make me want to resub.  Once they introduced ranks 7 & 8 the game's replay value in pvp vanished.

Yeah I did it more for laughs.  People thought rogues were bad when we got buffed, its nothing to what mages are now.

1.7 is changing things up. Spreading out the prestige ranks from 8 to 40. Removing the PvP souls and folding them into a new Planar Attunement tree. Rank requirements are gone from PvP armor. Physical mitigation is being dropped for the tank specs.

A combination of Star Wars and the new ranked matches has seen a drop in player numbers and an corresponding increase in que times. To address this, they are testing out a new "Mercenary" system, ie no defiant/guardian in the WFs.

Quote from: 1.7 Patch Snippet
WARFRONTS – MERCENARIES
* Currently in testing on PTS: In order to reduce queue times to as near-zero as possible, players can join the opposing faction’s Warfront team as a “Mercenary”.
* Right now, on PTS, you queue for Warfronts as normal and may be assigned as a Mercenary when the Warfront map loads. You’ll receive a Mercenary buff and on-screen callout and will be placed as part of the opposite faction’s team.
