Clarification: What this thread is NOT: This is NOT a Tram vs. Fel thread. This is NOT a "lure people to Fel" thread. This is NOT a thread to argue in. What this IS about, is compiling information to help teach people how to PvP. Ideally, skilled PvP'ers will step forward and share their tricks-of-the-trade and hopefully, be available in-game to walk newbies through the motions. Taking time to show folks how to, let's say, set up spell macros, fight certain types of opponents, and so-on. The original idea was to create a guild, "PvP Academy" or whatever, that would have veteran PvP'er as the guild leaders: the teachers. Players who wanted to learn would join the guild & participate in training exercises. After being graded, and finishing the "lesson plan", they could leave the guild, become a teacher, or just stick around, keep practicing, and/or help out. The teachers would set up a time-table for completing each phase of training. At the end of each phase, the teachers would get together and grade each student. If they pass, they move onto the next phase, if not - they keep practicing and strengthen their weak-points. The following is a rough draft of the Training Syllabus. Please note: I have little to no experience with what is important in PvP - these are just some of the things that I've struggled with. Feel free to suggest adding or removing of topics. Finally, I'd like to suggest that the educational atmosphere be friendly and helpful. No negative, rude, or harassing behavior directed at the students or teachers. [If this turns out to be a productive thread, maybe it could be stickied for quick reference.] [Training Syllabus] Phase 1: - Effective Character Builds & Templates Phase 2: - Macros & Targeting - Spell rotations, combos, and special moves Phase 3: - Fighting Dexxers (1.v.1) - Fighting Mages (1.v.1) Phase 4: - Fighting Multiple Opponents (1.v.###) - Group Battles (###.v.###) Phase 5: - Gear - Misc. Supplies & knowing when to use them **Note to moderators: if anyone starts to post harrassing, arguing BS - please delete the posts to keep things constructive please.
