Honestly... aside from self buffing classes like Friar or Shaman, is there actually ANY class that can compete in RvR these days without a buffbott, as ive reached a very low point now where everything i enjoy playing at lower lvls is going to be totally useless at 50. I wont lower myself to paying for a second account, especially as ill have to buy si,toa and cats again for it. In your oppinions, what class might still be viable at 50 with no BB ?

And plz dont say Vampiir as i wont lower myself to making an overpowered fotm class i detest :p

Vampiir is the best melee class out there, which doesn't need a bot. Very easy to level them too, with little downtime!

vampiirs are only overpowered because they come with a free buffbot effectively ;)

cleric/druid/shaman/healer with some enhance/nurture/aug
heretic
friar

anything if you have friends who have buffbots... (or friends who play something with buffs - field buffs aren't as good as buffbot buffs because when the buffer dies so do your buffs but hey they're fine till that happens :))

If you want to mainly snipe, Hunter and Ranger both have self buffs (if you spec them.)

the only class who wouldnt need a buffbot is one who would have 0 benefit from its buffs

the hot is only nice if you spec for the last one, in which case you will suck, and lose the fumble debuff :<

The hib choices there are ok, although chanter would need a bb to cap cast spd to compete with others... but um ? paladin and friar and NECRO !! <i have a necro lvl 50 he plain sucks, people just run away from me knowing the 500 range on my lifetap so i cant cast lol > , theyre pretty useless in RvR these days to solo.. u just dont get 1 on 1s anymore :(

Might give Warden a go actually, one of the only classes ive never tested :)

you know.......that......you.....also got a 1500 range castable lifetap and powertap right? So you can just cast these on people running away I guess? And you got a nice 50% snare? But I guess you knew that already :p

other than that, you're right that they suck in rvr.

and again, vampiir's are not overpowered. Play one, and you know the weaknesses fairly easy. I'm pretty sure when I decide to play alb again I can beat a Vamp pretty easy with most alb classes as I know their weaknesses.

yeah, whatever, as in "they can be tough when facing them solo and their debuff stick, and they have a somewhat lucky streak with styles opponents missing some", but there are many other classes that are far more overpowered. Won a 1on1 against a fully buffed infil today. But lost hands down to a fully buffed sorc and his fully buffed ml9:d stunning pet. (i sure hope it WAS buffed, and that it didnt hit me for nearly 500 damage on what seemed to be very fast attackspeed) But thats how things work in this game i guess.

Then again, you could always play the game as it's supposed to be played....get buffs from other players or ride it out.

I did it, i had fun. Hmm.
