So ive been playing either single player or on my private server since launch, and found myself getting a little bored so I decided to try PVP found a pretty chill server, most players Ive run into either wave or do some sort of dance and move on. Ive kept a low profile, no hoarding of resources ect… made a few friends cool with some of the bigger clans real fun. So then this weekend a new aggressive group should up and one of them picks on my weak pvp abilities, but it also looks like they ticked off the bigger clans because I saw and joined a huge battle really fun and the funniest s…t ive seen, naked players fighting with fist and stone pikes because thats all they had left.( I was one of them too lost all my gear lol) so heres the ?s
First are archers viable in pvp, ive always played as a heavy in all rpgs, mmos decided to try something new. but everyone was jumbled and I couldn’t get a bead so I jumped in n got beat.
Second, everyone and I mean everyone was fighting in light/med armor with pikes or triedents and I saw one in heavy armor. So is heavy armor viable and are other weapons good pikes get kinda boring.
third what combo is good agianst the pike maybe shield/axe?
Fourth if I go back to heavy, would heavy armor be good, and can the shield block a pike
Oh It wasnt raid time but I witnessed buildings getting blown to heck, how did that happen
I had way too much fun, just looking to get at least a fighting chance in a fight
