Have any of you tried it? It's pretty fun. If you do below lvl 50 matches you don't have to have amazing gear. It helps but isn't required. If you do lvl 50 matches... you better have good gear. I have the lvl 55 crafted PVP gear and OMG am I useless most of the time. Basic strategies. 1. Don't go after the healer UNLESS you have a competent Warrior who can go after the healer. Their ability that reduces healing received by 20 percent is CRITICAL! 2. Don't go after the summoner's pet if you can't 2 or 3 shot it. That thing and a summoner can just wall you like crazy and then they can bring it back as if you did no damage to it. 3. GO AFTER THE RANGED. The ranged attacker is going to be sleeping people if they are a BLM, or interrupting your healer's casting. 4. Do your challenge log EVERY week if you are going to do PVP. That exp will really add up. Really helps you get higher ranks, which means better stats, and more PVP moves, whcih means more usefulness. 5. Don't use PVE gear unless you're ilvl 90 or higher. The boost from Morale on the PVP gear is damage plus, and damage reduction. PVP 70 or higher gear can not be replaced by current PVE gear. 6. If you run behind a pole while your healer is trying to heal you, your healer will get interrupted due to line of sight. Don't run behind shit if you need heals. bare bare basics. It's a lot of fun IMO.
