    Why do PvErd think slaying dragons takes more skill than playing against a player

    I don't understand How Dragon Slaying is harder than 2200+ arena and Higher....

    I've never once thought PvEing is harder than PvPing or vice versa, but the game would be better off without PvP.

    How can anyone say that a mechanical process which is the same for every pull is harder than individual choices by players ?

    Oh my this topic, first of all each division of this game has a different skill set. I'm friend with many glads/rank1 players that do struggle with hardmode fights in the pve aspect of the game. Be it they can't pull the right numbers, stand in fire, can't handle mechanics etc. It's a completely different monster than the pvp aspect of the game. You can't even compare the two.

    The real question is: why in the hell does anyone care? PvPers PvP, PvErs PvE, some do both; the world spins regardless.
    9 out of 10 people agree that in a room full of 10 people one person will always disagree with the other 9.

    both take skill, but different kinds of skill
    PVE has a lot more focus on dealing with more predictable fights but which use difficult mechanics that require practice and dedication to beat
    PVP is more about simpler mechanics (in comparison) but unpredictable and with a lot of adjusting tactics on the fly
    I don't care, I'm still free. You can't take the sky from me

    WoW comics & jokes, Dragon Age parody and other weirdness

    Not harder just different but PvP is more complex.

    But it really isn't. To be good at both you just have to do research and apply them to the different aspects of the game.

    The game would be better without PvP. Personally, if I want to face another player, I would want to do it in a fair environment, like in League of Legends.

    Imho it's about the same.

    In PvP you have to adapt to every single combo out there, being good at keeping an overview of the fight and knowing which player to push dps on and which to CC. ( I do not PvP myself, this is just how I believe it's done? Bleh.)

    In PvE you have a boss with "mostly" set ability rotations and actions. Furthermore you have 10 / 25 people who has to do the encounter perfectly for it to be a kill, I myself raid 10 man, and often one fuckup from a player means a wipe. Without knowing how long an arena battle is, I'll say this; Having 10 peeps staying focused for around 10 - 15 minutes isn't the easiest thing in the world after 30 - 40 wipes on the same boss.

    I'll cut it here and leave with this;

    Why does it matter which is the hardest? Why is it important to KNOW one is doing the "hardest" thing in-game, wheather it being PvE og PvP.

    I'm impressed how you can get 2.2k in 2h..
    Even if you have the skill and the gear, unless you start with 3k mmr, have an instant queue and win every match within 5min, you won't get 2.2k.
    Clearing every boss on hc when you have the gear for it already, I don't think topguilds need much more than 2h to clear it all.

    Never heard anyone say that and it would be a stupid and pointless argument comparing apples to oranges . . .

    Creating PvE vs. PvP threads isn't allowed. Stop trying to cause drama.
