    Is there more dexers or mages around in PvP on your shard?

    On my shard it's pretty much just dexers nowdays and very few mages around usually. I would definitly want to see more mage fights.

    Edit: and by mages I mean all magetemps around (necro, myst, spellweaving etc) and by dexers all dexers (melee, archer, stealth etc.)

    There is defiantly an influx of dexxers due to imbuing. When the variation of mages show up they rip any group of dexxers..

    You need to break down the dexer category..I would say probably 50-60 percent of the PvPers are archers....another 20% Dexers, then the rest would be mages. Tamers are also in the mix but usually in conjunction with archery templates or mage templates...

    Europa ofc is mostly dexxers.
    Its just pathetic and boring.
    The time will come when theres only gonna be huge Archerfights including one Dexxer to disarm.
    And its gonna be over in awesome 2 Minutes and whoever is lucky enough to get the first hit will win.

    That is gonna be the end then, and every decent pvper willst just not bothered anymore...

    Its kinda funny...on GL it used to be factions...dexxers, non factions mages.

    There is a bit of a shift...basically all the non factioners have gimped out and gone to dexxers and alot of the factioners are moving to mages.

    I think alot of it is due to the inability for dexxers to effectively raid TB base against scripted fielders[another issue]. Or effectively take and hold a choke point.

    However, even these groups have about a 60/40 split of dexxers[archers] to mages.

    Here on Atlanic there are more Dexxers than Mages.

    I have noticed though In the last couple of months that fielding mages Is becoming popular again.
    I will soon be dusting mine off....playing a Dexxer Is starting to become boring.

    The problem is that all a group of speedhacking archers really has to do is stay next to each other and spam their attack nearest hostile key along with moving shot.

    It is easy, it works, why would the baddies want to do anything else?
