    Angry Balance...

    Alright, folks. My Blackarrow's Fire Arrow DoT at most is 300 every 2s for 20s. That is a grand total of 3000 Fire damage.

    Warden's DoT. MEDIUM BLEED---946 every 4s for 52s. Thats a grand total of 12,298. Big bleed is 1200 Damage/tick.

    I fail to see how this is balanced in the least.

    I've taken a 6 month break from this game. Back then, it was unbalanced, but not nearly this bad.

    I shouldnt have to leave combat at 1/2 hp just to survive. I cant tell you how many times i have died with 4k hp when i leave combat b/c of DoTs.

    I dunno what to do. Do Creeps just have to Zerg freeps in order to win? I'm so confused.

    max possible is 42s, not 52. With those bleed numbers, they're only wearing 2 pieces of audacity and generally glass cannon gear as well.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm in complete agreement about those bleeds being out of line in duration (it should go back to the pre-revamp 16s), but a full, accurate picture of whats going on helps nonetheless.

    I think you're being misleading, calling a warden a "glass cannon", even in full DPS gear and traits they are hardly glass.

    What they are wearing for gear is kind of a moot point with in combat gear swaps no? Either way, why is a "tank" class able to do 3 times the damage of dps classes? I think we can all agree that wardens are severely overpowered, but heck most freep classes are these days....

    This thread fails to include the fact that it is unlikely that a warden will have only one DOT on you. One warden, given enough time, could fill a whole row of your buff bar with massive bleeds.

    Being able to do an inducted 2-5k heal every few seconds doesn't really help when some specially conditioned from birth warden is shooting javelins at you because s/he doesn't know anything else. If a warden decides, in a raid, that they want me dead or have been assigned to attack me and they only use range, eventually the DOTs get so big, combined with the induction setbacks of their attacks, that I am unable to outheal them and without another healer, I die.

    Let's not get started about wardens in melee range...

    The Moors are an imperfect place. On our server, and several others from posts I've seen, one side or the other is routinely playing with the pop buff. That's a rather serious numbers issue which the pop buff doesn't begin to address. Are Wardens OP? Yep. But the list of 'unbalanced' aspects of the Moors is large. Any balancing efforts won't be forthcoming until well after Helm's Deep. There's little for anyone to do to deal with the imbalances on their particular server or in their particular playing time but use the size of the Moors, the variables of the map, and their own ingenuity to find fights more to their liking. Some days that's tough or near impossible.

    He did say glass cannon gear, might seem like semantics, but it's not really. Anyways, point is, a build and gear setup like that means the warden can be brought low really fast. The real problem is, as everything else with freeps, when they group up; Lolmasters, caddys, healing Sith Lords, the whole tjubang, then everything truly gets outta hand...

    Since '07 after release, we saw a pattern developing: nerf creep skills to prevent solo creeps from having much of a chance against solo freeps, so that creeps LEARN TO GROUP UP. So ok, then came the Rift with damage reflect gear, and it still didn't matter if you grouped or not. The point being that creeps always seem to be behind the 8-ball, and freeps seem to have a ridiculously easier time to rank/level. Some said, Well its a way to get freeps into the Moors, but I totally disagree. People want a challenge, not a free ride (basically), so why not reorder the way PVMP is played, in order to encourage levelling without the disgrace of being blown up by an RK or Hunter in mere seconds. I look at it like this: If creeps had 65-75k morale, and freeps 65-75k morale, and you gave points NOT JUST from kills, but from actual combat skills being executed (hits, crit hits, dev hits, crit heals, succesful manoeuvres, etc.), with the focus more on COMBAT rather than kills or kb's (which was a stupid idea from the start), then people would not feel so disgraced over dying WAY TOO FAST, and ACTUALLY ENGAGE in combat for points. I quit running my BA around in the Moors a long time ago because it just got to be BS trying to deal with burgs, destroying your Morale while you were locked down for 15 seconds. I know that's changed now but the principle of the thing has been all wrong from the start. Give players 75k morale and let them beat and bash each other to their heart's content, dying only after a longer stint in a big scap, instead of quickly, and award points for actually fighting an enemy instead of leeching points off the raid in stealth or camo. If it takes 10 minutes to bring down a creep, because his Morale is much higher, and his resistance is much greater, than how more rewarding the kb? It shouldn't matter really, but it does, that sme value kb's, but how much more rewarding if it comes as a result of a long fight? Instead of blowing each other up in seconds, which current system has driven more people out of the Moors than all their previous management blunders. Give us high morale/high resist and let us recieve points from combat, making it worthwhile and more fun, and MAYBE the Moors won't be empty all the time on most servers. I challenge the Devs to do this and quit failing in their management of what used to be the second most populated part of the game....

    This. Both the point about warden's and even more with having fun.

    I've goofed around with my full pve dps build during a couple GV camps, and yes, I can kill an unsupported healer from range without needing the inc healing debuff, but you know what else happens since i'm not grouped? A warg Duo can kill me before I recover from the pounce, and LONG before the animation on DC would take effect. No gearswapping and cooldown useage can save me in that scenario if the wargs are competent and follow the stun with a silence/disarm.

    Squelcher, I'd imagine most decent hunters in a raid can do the same to you, right? If the warden is running with the gear we are discussing here, they need to be treated like a hunter. We are long past the point where arguments of "a tanking/healing/cc class shouldn't be able to do that kind of dps" were relevant. Every freep class is able to do dps that puts creeps to shame, its not a warden specific thing (warden's are outliers in what they can do in in solo/small group settings, not raids).

    That's sounds impressive, but unfortunately that means that those freeps were bad. No other explanation than ridiculous, blind luck.

    The RK is very good, but she didn't use heals, the burg and champ were new.

    Wardens are op. They shouldn't have a stance that gives them great ranged damage and have insane mits and morale, but that's Turbine's logic for ya.

    There's little balance at the moment. On the one hand, you have freeps who individually or in small groups can pretty routinely take out creeps in equivalent numbers and ranks. So when the numbers on the map are low or there aren't raid-sized groups, freeps are OP. However, creeps have skills and maps that enable them to more than hold their own against an equal number of freeps in RvR type encounters. A creep raid with 3 WLs dropping terror banners will cut a freep raid's DPS in half. Those same 3 WLs should be able to res more ppl than 9 minstrels with their AoE reses. Throw in wargs tracking freep raids and the freep raids losing the element of surprise most of the time, maps which allow them to concentrate their forces anywhere on the map pretty quickly, and creeps do very well when they have numbers. So is it balanced? No. If creeps would like 'balance' in 1v1 type situations, they'd likely have to give up the things that make them so effective in larger numbers. Things like maps, long strides on wargs, the large coverage area and huge affects of stacked WL banners and their AoE reses. Is that a trade-off creeps would like to make?

    It is difficult for green creeps to rank and get their maps, but the freeps you see out there at lvl 85 spents months getting there if they have half-way decent gear and virtues.

    1. No half-decent fraid will fight in banners if they choose so. They move or wait for them to vanish. They stay only for a very short time, unlike captain banners. And have a long cooldown, unlike captain banners.
    2. Element of surprise is gone on many servers due to freep spies following craid everywhere on the map on their freavers.
    3. Super AoE rezzes is one of the problems of imbalance. The creep strategy is to die, rez, die, rez, die rez until they can wipe freeps. Freeps can have wiped the craid 2-3-4 times before they finally have suffered enough casualties to make them run. That is a terrible idea in a PvMP environment where more kills make you stronger.

    Wardens are a unique mix. Most heavy mit classes can be slowed with webs, wounds, etc. and it cuts in on their damage output. Not Wardens. I wonder what changes could be made to the Monster Play buff to make them potentially more vulnerable when in dps stance.

    personally this idea would work but I doubt turbine will do they are freemium game only interested in our money not motivating us to actually play pvp.

    1. I've led a number of freep raids. It can be a challenge keeping your group together while moving AWAY from your opponent and their banners, not to mention the affects it has on target selection and your raids DPS while moing away from where the fight is centered. Still, as freeps you don't have much choice because if you stay within range of those banners, the effects can cut your raid's effectiveness drastically. "Wait for them to vanish"? Terror banners aren't dropped until combat starts. I don't think the creeps are going to stand around waiting while the freeps wiat for them to vanish. Furthermore, the tide of many battles is decided in the two minutes those banners are up. They have a huge affect! Stay and fight in them, say goodbye to your DPS and your healers' effectiveness. Fight moving away from them, and you're fighting on your heels instead of pressing the opponent.

    2. How much does a freaver spy help a fraid out when they call out a craid's location, but the fraid has to hoof it halfway across the map to get there? On the other hand, in call outs, creeps w/ maps can often be at the scene of the fight in less than a minute.

    3. I'm not sure what the populations are like on your server or what the renown/infamy totals looked like on the blackappendage site for your server. I can tell you that on Arkenstone, I played in the Moors for almost a year before freep total renown gains ever surpassed creep total infamy gains. That simply doesn't happen if a creep raid has to be ressed 2-3-4 times in order beat a freep raid. If that was the case, wouldn't you think that freep renown gains would be 2-3-4 times larger than creep infamy gains? Have freep total renown gains really been 2-3-4 times creep total infamy gains on your server?

    1. Terror banners cannot be dropped in combat without the trait, shame on your LMs and DPS for allowing WLs to remain out of combat. With the trait they only last for 1m. And it is still only -10% damage, -365 might and -4000 tact mastery in a static area. There are far more powerful debuffs out there. Granted, in a keep it can be a hazard, but keep fights are so incredibly rare here that I haven't seen one for...until last night, weeks if not months, actually. It's just been grams camping.
    2. Because travelling halfway across the map takes only a minute, that doesn't give the craid the time to do whatever it was they came to do, i.e. take keep/relic/DoFbuff.
    3. Gilrain. Freeps outnumbered creeps quite badly. Yes, freeps gained double and triple numbers quite often. Though in recent weeks we've seen many high and low ranked creeps from other servers join us, now numbers are much better. Last night was the first keep fight I have seen in a long time, and it was glorious even despite the lag.

    Must be some really terrible freeps for that to be the case, 24 freeps will a clue will steamroll 24 creeps without a single death.

    If the freep raid had 500 dps, sure. Otherwise, no.

    You're kidding, right? WL's rez has a cooldown. Unlike the minstrel 5 target rez with NO cooldown that can be spammed. And no, it is not difficult for a minstrel to drop combat to rez. Against a good creep raid, it just requires one burglar...

    If you honestly think RvR is balanced atm then shame on your server for have terrible freeps. And talking numbers, creeps are regularly fighting 35+ freeps on Brandywine, there were 56+ a few days ago. It goes both ways.


    OP-There is no such thing as balance in an MMO's pvp system and there never will be, LOTRO is no exception.

    That is the case. Ive only been on Ark a little while all I can say is his post is a good indication of the mindset and skill level possessed.
    Those same 3 WLs should be able to res more ppl than 9 minstrels with their AoE reses.
    Now that line made me raise a brow I wasn't sure if we had a budding troll attempting to sneak one by but after some research ive concluded that the reality is this person probably believes this. The real problem is the context of the thread and if we extrapolate out the reply in that vein it becomes extremely worrying as this is what some freeps truly believe. The dumbing down of PvE where nothing is really a threat, even the new raids are overly simplistic, freep only players cant fathom the conditions by which they would die over and over. You then can conclude their only hope of rationalization is "it has to be unbalanced" when the reality is they haven't, or cant adjust their playstyles to meet a different condition. These are the ones we have to be very mindful of, because these are the people who will, in the end truly destroy lotro PvP.

    Added some emphasis.

    I like you much better when you post seriously instead of trolling. Keep up the good work, this is a great quote.

    hunters have a far larger tracking range, can even track stealthed wargs and can track ON horseback, this is 0 excuse for losing the element of surprise. You need to smack the lazy hunters around and get them to do what their class was partly intended to do, TRACK FOE, TRACK NATURE. You die ONE time, if you don't get rezzed you can map back after that its get your jogging shoes on, tough on newer people since they can literally be 2shot by many of the freep classes out there, audacity or not.

    even with long strides and sprint you cannot catch a mounted freep unless you were right on top of them when they started to ride off. If you are scouting a raid long strides will not let you even get close enough to see where a mounted freep raid went.

    Creep AOE effects and Bleeds are less than half what freeps can dish out, especially CC wise.

    Many creeps have spent years getting their character up in rank (do to changing infamy gains) So following your logic a high ranked creep that spent months/years getting there should be 2 shot by a lucky dev crit from a rank 2 RK or hunter? Either that or let a freep at level 10 go to the moors? Just because you start at level 85 on a creep means 0 you are about as effective as a lvl 40 freep would be.

    New players got the nickname Greenie for a reason, for those who might recall why

    So is it the mindset, of creeps in general, that they simply can't win unless they have twice the numbers, or that a well-played creep stands little to no chance against a well-played freep in a 1v1? Just curious.

    With the exception of the reaver, and poor class match ups (hunter vs BA) yes, the freep should win.
    Rank 14 Minstrel, Rank 10 Rune-keeper, Rank 7 Champion
    Rank 11 Weaver, Rank 11 Blackarrow, Rank 10 Reaver, Rank 10 Stalker, Rank 9 Defiler, Rank 7 Warleader
