<p>1. People often act like npc's, in that they have an 'aggro range'</p><p>2. People often act like EQ1 npc's, in that they flee < 10%, so save your spikes for then</p><p>3. Soloing a healer is usually not worth the time</p><p>4. Sometimes just getting away from the other team is better than engaging, even if you are going to win (for example, capturing another tower vs killing them)</p><p>5. Berserkers with that green verdict looking buff are not worth fighting because they heal for an insane amount</p><p>6. Dispel > Divine Aura/Manashield</p>

<p>1. Pick off the illusionist first. Pick off the other team's ranger/wizard/warlock next.</p><p>2. If you see a zerker, pick off as many DPSers as you can before he hits gibe (or whatever that [Removed for Content] 'taunt everything in the zone' thing is)</p><p>3. Your stream of arrows is bugged and will say you're too far away when you're right up in their faces, but too close when you're 15 meters out. It will never work when you need it to.</p><p>4. If you can't kill them, slow them down with snaring shot so they get to your team one at a time.</p><p>5. Don't bother with the paladin/shadowknight/zerker. You'll never win and they'll never get stunned.</p><p>7. Mages have double the range I do.</p><p>8. Don't underestimate the other team's bard. He is fully capable of eating your face.</p><p>9. Don't assume that just because the other team has a healer means that healer is actually going to give them the advantage.</p><p>10. Even if he kills you 12 times in the match, killing Gaige just one time makes you feel like a ranger hero. <img src="/eq2/images/smilies/8a80c6485cd926be453217d59a84a888.gif" border="0" /></p><p>Edited to add: You only have 1-3 kills before the tank finds you and stomps you. Make those kills count.</p>

<p>When you're being attacked and you have the enemy targeted it won't let you heal yourself and says;</p><p> 'not a friendly target'</p><p>Seriously I set up macros so I can heal myself faster because of this message, but they don't always work because of taunts, and won't let me cure myself of said taunt. When I have a enemy targeted usualy I can click a heal and it heals me directly but sometimes in bg's it says above statement.  I don't remember being like that on nagafen when I played a healer there. Is it something new with bg's or has it always been like that in pvp?</p>

<p>Communication. If you can't join voice chat, you aren't entitled to an opinion or have the right to call other people bad players.</p><p>Learn what is needed to win the objective and act accordingly. Can't tell you how many times I've seen people wasting time fighting at revive points.</p><p>If an enchanter mezzes the person that just grabbed the flag, open with a stun/root/snare ffs.</p><p>You can cast while the elevator is going up in smugglers. Time your blue AE's to fire just as you hit the top. Love sitting on the top of middle tower and watching a team coming up on the elevator with my enchanter. Casting my blue AE stun to hit them right when they get to the top, half the people are still on the vator when it goes back down.</p>

<p>I've learned the following:</p><p>1. Play either a sorcerer/cleric or crusader</p><p>2. If you don't have a tank that hits taunt your group is at a huge disadvantage</p><p>3. If you don't run as a group, your dead unless your a sorcerer/cleric or crusader</p>

<p>I learned this in Warhammer, and it applies here as well:</p><p>F<span >ollow the "roll downhill" principle you need in order to win at pvp scenarios.</span></p><p>Kill the healer first, mages second, dps and then tanks.</p><p>If no healers nearby, mages get bumped to the top of the list.</p><p>On the other side, tanks need to be protecting the healers (who will heal them), and the mages, who should be blasting the snot out of everything they can while behind a meatwall.  DPS should be harrying the healers---if they have to focus on healing themselves, they're not healing their teammates.  DPS, get used to being a kamikaze.  It's your job to go in with your group, break from the group and play the decoy, buy your team a few seconds of time, and die.  In between this, beat up every mage and healer you can find.</p><p>Rinse and repeat. </p>

<p>I love when you people say healer first....very rarely has it worked, and it has only worked when i happen to NOT see the wizard first (wizards don't one shot me and I am leather!)  I am just happy no one is saying nerf fury's. I pretty much lead in kills or am in the top 3 everytime...and lead in heal parse for game.. against teams that have clerics,shamans, and/or warden.  Honestly as fury, no class really intimidates me to go about against . Like anyone though, get the right jump on me, or come at me 2 deep,  goodbye Hotheals... lately hasn't mattered. because even up 520-12 means  nothing when that one shot from the eq2 dev warlocks known as the TRUANCY bug hits the match and takes everyone down <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></p>

That being said onto your Fury statement.</p><p>Furys' are healer that's for [Removed for Content] sure. But a fury not doing decent dps, is completely wasting  his class and needs to just re-roll a warden.

I am definitely satisfied with the job I am doing <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /> have lost very few matches in Klak, less then ten. 2 of those were to Europa lol.  i've lost less then ten matches in klak and ive ran right around 100. so winning 9 of 10 matches, i'll take all day long <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></p>

<p>Based on my limited experience and more limited skills Id say take out the biggest big guns first (unless you can stand up to repeated big hits) then healers then other DPS/utility then tanks. Obviously depends on whats going on and who is there though. In gears if a tank has the relic then I guess you have to try and burn healers off and then the tank and just try to use scenery to avoid being nuked but its hard if they are well organised.</p><p>Well played mezzers can throw you a loop though, and tend to be easy to kill so cleaning those up might be worth it early on.</p>

<p>Just a side note;</p><p>Mages should turn auto-attack on when fighting scouts and such, keeps you facing them when you can and they can't just get at your back because you were too slow to turn around while casting.</p><p>(And whoever said hitting people with heresy is fun, I killed a pally with it earlier, he ran off and must've killed himself trying to heal back up XD)</p>

With magic damage being what it is, I gun for this order (depending on certain people I know to be trouble) Warlock/Wizard, Enchanter, then healer. Depends on how good the enchanter is, a good illy will destroy a team with his encounter stifle (not single handedly ofcourse).</p><p>I should note that I am mostly playing my coercer (to gear up my inq) now since my inq got to 90 and can't heal a group if there is a half decent lock/wiz on the other team. It is very rare that a healer will keep up the mage while I open up on him. Again, because magic damage is the way it is atm.</p>

<p>Loved a lot of the OP's points! here's a couple more from my perspective:</p><p>1. If you don't have VC on, even if you can only hear = FAIL</p><p>2. If you don't have your mini map up to see where the Relic/Flag/Group is = FAIL</p><p>3. If you're in Gears and you're fighting against someone on the complete other side of the zone from the relic = FAIL</p><p>4. If you're in Smuggler's and you're not fighting on the flag = FAIL</p>
