<p>These are some idea's I have always thought would be a decent idea to implement for the PVP servers to make things a little more interesting..</p><p>1. Feign death - While feigned your target appears as a "corpse" with no life and your enemies target is cleared.  While Feigned you also appear off track, just like a corpse does.</p><p>2. While a player is casting a spell he or she can walk at the same time.  (Similar to Vanguard)  This speed should be equal to the normal in-combat walking speed.</p><p>3. PVP death respawns you either to an adjacent zone or bind point and you cannot revive while your group is in pvp combat or PVP death results in a much longer and greater res sickness.</p><p>4.  Make docks a battleground again, docks where home to some of the best epic pvp battles.</p><p>5. Evac should be interuptable.</p><p>Anyone have some of their own ideas?</p>

Docks used to be the place to be-I remember running through the pass in TS with a group only to stop and pre-buff, ward, and everything just because you knew you were going to have to fight your way to a bell.  Those were the days... =)

You can interupt Evac with fear thats it, no stun, no stifle, mez, knockback, or interupt ability actually stops evac.  This was changed when they took out in combat evac.  This is for a scout, not a caster.

<p>We should be able to cast whilst moving IMO, but the casting time should be increased by 35%.</p><p>I mean, if a wizard has a spell, it means they have mastered it... so why cant I run after you and cast Ice Nova with some form of penalty for mobile casting? BS.</p>

Well, you should be able to cast on them.  You just can't see their health.  And the advantage would be they could stay FD'd and not appear on track, so they could watch over there own area within their view or hide behind a rock or what not.  Anyway, if when you died you went back to your bind point, I would think some people would assume you are dead and waiting for a res, but who knows if they will ever be implemented.

<p>I have had my scout evac interrupted many times.... since the changes.  I have interrupted scout evac since the changes.</p><p>DO NOT ask me how I did it, or what they did to me to make it happen, because whatever it is, it's intermittant....</p><p>and no, I wasn't just feared.</p>

Not bashing you either bro, thanks for your input, I love roleplaying, honestly, I have NO idea why I didn't go to Venekor...I love pvp so much that it seemed Nagafen was the only real choice after the disappointments on vox.

Yep its true! Evac gets interupted. Stuns dont work. But Stifles, Fears and Charms do as well as interupts stop evac.
