So yea, i'm trying Rift again with a couple of friends. We did some warzones yesterday at lvl 18. We are a champion warrior, assassin rogue and a cleric healer. We all got killed by ranged damage in a couple of GCD again and again. We got crit for about 400 ranged damage over and over, that's close to 1/3 of our damage. It was so incredible frustrating. As soon as we engaged we died in a couple of GCD.
I then switched to my rogue and we both skilled saboteur. 5x Blast charge -> Detonate did about did about 50% HP in damage. It was so dumb. We topped damage meters easily with 2x-3x the damage of the third one.
Does the damage in PvP stay this high? If yes, does Trion see this as a problem? If not, when does it get better? It's such a bad three shot part atm, I hate it.
