Hey, im coming back to eq2 decided on pvp Nagafen server. I am inbetween an Inquis/Defilier i am going freep side. I know the classes relativly well and the game i have had a raiding 70 before. I was just wondering which class is better at pvp, and if they are equal how do they differ, which class is more rare. just the all around pros and cons. Thanks for any info you have. P.S. sorry for the errors my english is not the greatest

Well if you plan on raiding I would go with a defiler, if you plan on group pvp it is about the same.  If you plan on solo pvping or small group pvp'ing the inquis is most likely better.

<p>Or you can make both and level them equally! </p><p>What a concept!</p><p>LOL.  Trust me..you will end up making more then one character anyway.  </p><p>Ouch..got nuked for 5k... make a Wiz</p><p>OMG he can track.... make a Scout</p><p>Wow...that guy runs extra fast with just 8 AA!!....make a Warden</p><p>Inquisitor and Defiler?   hmm I need to get hit to get healed vs I get warded and my hp does not go down (thus frustrating the heck out of the other people trying to kill ya).  </p><p>Fun times... good luck with your selection.</p>

Defilers are the ones who gives me the hardest time ..

It's better to not get hit at all IMHO. But the Defiler does have an advantage I think. A lot, and I meant a *lot*, of people have no idea what a Defiler really does. It frustrates the hell out of them when they start smacking you or a group you've warded around and nothing happens. Also, lets not forget the Fear ability. The downside is two fold: One, the stupid dog. It's a pita. Two, wards take a while to cast. If you get jumped, it's tough to get your wards up. I've heard Inquis who take the Battlepriest line are tough as hell in PVP though.

Mystic - the melee AA line is better than the defi %+ to your dots. Assuming of course you're going down the AGI line.

Inquis can buff the DPS melee classes and they do have the CA line in their AA. Inquis has little faster cast times on heals/reactives. Defiler is great at buffing HP and wards are great for any class, long cast times, big heals. Inquis is the rarer of the two.

<p>Inquis without a doubt can do more autoattack damage, with 100% melee crit 20% haste and self buffing about 40-100% DPS (depending on skills used and level). Inquis get neat reactive damage (Punishments) some stun+damage the opponent when they use a CA, others trigger off of regular melee, others trigger off of heals. Take a look at: <a href="http://www.mfia-eng.com/RLC/EQ2Inquisitor_spells.htm" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://www.mfia-eng.com/RLC/EQ2Inqu...itor_spells.htm</a> for a list of our spells. A lot of our stuff can be enhanced nicely with AAs. Defilers do NOT cast faster than us, they have the same casting speed, defilers also use health with their heals, don't be fooled the heals take the same power as most of our spells. Defilers should be more efficient in power use considering it is health/power usage. However, I believe wards are a lot more efficient, since someone can just autoattack away a reactive, where as a ward doesn't go away until it is used up or 30s rolls by.</p><p> But in closing, I wouldn't give up my Inquis, I can solo named triple ups high green con, and regular triple up mobs 2 levels lower than me (depending on the class of the mob). However, the Inquis is a slow starter, but later on we get some really neat things.</p>
