I just poked my head into cross server BG for the first time.. hah.. went down the list checking people out, can't see much about them except their BR.. but when I saw most people 6 levels lower than me with the same or higher BR, and people my same level a good 6k+ above me being commonplace, I said forget this and got out of there. When it comes to BG, I'll say it looks like we were led to slaughter, these other servers have much more time into this, or events, or I don't know.. I'm not a super player by any means but I consider myself average for my level. Lvl 66, 42k BR. Just saw many 60-62 at 43k, 44k, 45k.. and 65+ at 48k to about 55 or 56k was the tops in there. Those numbers are the players in our server we consider OPed, and they were just about all in that range. I can't compete with what I just saw.. not without letting them give me dryads. Might come to that.
I hope this was an isolated "bad draw", but having about 10 of 15 people on the other side moderately to substantially more powerful than me.. not so confident in that. Will update my thoughts on this as we go. I'd like to hear others feelings on cross server BG.
I did the Cross BG, no issues here was killing people 5-6k more BR than me, Roo was killing mages 12k higher BR than her over and over again. Just if their BR is higher doesn't mean they are stronger. I had 0 deaths in the BGs. The only person that was there that when I reviewed the people's stats in the BG was on my team and that was a 20k PAtk Archer at level 61, was easily killing Knights that were 54k BR in the BG that were on the other team. It won't show you their gear, but it will show you their stats, you can easily find people that are built a certain way because that's how their Server is. Different servers have different degrees of cashers and different classes that the players are trying to set up a counter play style against.
Like I've visited some of the other servers before I could see what each server had for the ones we'd fight. And it'd be like Oh this has nothing but mages and a 1-3 archers in top 30, best knight being rank 35 with basic pvp gear. So everyone on that server is set up to fight mages. Another one 2-5 mages in top 30 with the top 10 being half knights half archer then majority of the rest of 10-30 is mix of knights and archers with a few mages, that server everyone had their stats set up to counter knights and archers. So while they might have high BR doesn't mean they're set up to have a counter vs you.
Clothing the only thing players have to technically buy at the moment is the level 1 piece. Non-cashers are slow and steady playing. The Spire when it's out in a later patch has the Fashion Shards which 10 of those = 1 Fashion Core. So then you can make the cores. 3 Pieces of Fashion = a little over 1k Balens, not that much. Then you can farm the rest.
There are also event clothes that might come out in the future for us depending on what events we have. Those clothes have the same stats as the normal clothes just a special design and you have to do certain activities to get them.
Special Attacks have never been hard to perform, and have been spamable on every Cooldown the only thing it requires is PvE gear. The Clothing allows you to if you get enough of them open with them, but it will continue to take you a long time to get the rage to cast it again for PvP gear.
I think I commented on everything.
