New Armor VS Sovereign
Once again I decided to grace the ideal that is a blog, nonetheless, I figured I would give you my impression on the current state of play within warhammer!
So far after *serious* scrutiny by the public at large and the all important 2 week test phase, it has been determined by the majority that the 2 new armor sets within the game are too overpowered.
Consider this however, a RR83.5 DoK With full melee spec (Sac/Torture) an 83 imposing weap on main hand, full sovereign and an 81 weap on the off hand due to speed difference in the weapons can take down a RR90 Slayer in full doomflayer(offensive spec) with nothing more than just a bit of weapon skill.
My point is, its not so much that we have to cower in fear of OH MY GOD its new armor and we're all going to die! speculation, but moreso that we should just adapt to it.
Everyone use to think the exact same thing about sovereign,from what I can see now though its more to do with how you play it and what your opposition is.
Fair enough the grind from RR80 to RR100 is staggeringly and boringly long and tiresome, hopefully Mythic will come up with a solution to that before there is a mass exodus next month as is predicted by many a person I have recent been in contact with about war.

Rift beta is heading up again this weekend with a chance to win a graphics card! I must admit, for how amazing this game looks, the playability of it is just as astounding. Being able to jump from PvE based content, into PvP in half a heartbeat with the warfronts (which I admit still need some fine tuning but nonetheless are cool in the fact of cross server action) , although once you respawn out of it , you could find yourself in a virtual warzone within a Rift!
Next blog will probably be a little bit after the Rift Beta which starts again this Friday to Monday.
