Intro[edit]

Presearing has been the same since forever.And while I still believe it can see some nice changes you can't deny it still is a quite popular area up to date.I'd actually say that Presearing is the most succesfull Tutorial in Online Gaming History.

Adding PvP[edit]

I believe that Presearing could use some PvP.And the more I think about it the more I would love it.Since there aren't many skill in presearing I suggest Adding Some Core and prophecies skills.You barely have any right now but I think it is important.

If needed you could give these a special tag and lock them down in the PvE aspect of the game.

I'd Even add a Secondary core Signet.Yep You've guessed it:I want to bring back the old Healing Signet for core but modified a bit so warrior's still have a advantage using the other one.

Signet. You gain 100 Health. You have -40 armor while using this skill.

0 Energy2 Activation time7 Recharge time

The reason is because there really wouldn't be alot of damage in the presearing PvP.And Healing Signet is very good in those small scaled,little damage situations.Nostalgia ftw right ? So why not some usefull nostalgia :).

The Seer[edit]

The Seer could make a reappearance in the combat zones.He could allow you to take one elite skill with fixed values in pvp without actually ever learning the skill.I would add some versions of skills just for pvp purposes.

Special Effect while in Pre Searing PvP[edit]

Rebel Yell.jpg "For Ascalon!"

While under the effect of "For Ascalon!" you have 400 max health,100 attribute points to spend and gain 40 exp whenever you kill a foe.As long as you are affected by "For Ascalon!" you can accumulate Death Penalty (Max 45%).

PvP Formats[edit]

I would Suggest 3 formats :

Raid Format[edit]

Something else I would add Exclusivly to Pre would be some kind of raids.Where you try to capture a Castle or Stronghold of the Charr.You could even recycle the GvG maps if you wanted to.The Idea behind it is that you have to destroy one of the Charrbosses.The boss could then drop some sort of blue item wich would be strong in Presearing.Perhaps Similar to the FoW weapons I introduced.
