Is it Time to Say Goodbye to Conquest Power?

During last Friday’s live stream, Daglar talked a bit about the fact that Trion is finally considering getting rid of Conquest Power altogether. The idea originally popped up in this forum thread earlier in the week asking for player feedback. So far, the feedback seems to be leaning in favor of nuking Conquest Power into orbit.

Daglar shared his thoughts on what this would mean, exactly, and stated that on the PvP side of things, the loss of the stat bonuses shouldn’t harm PvP whatsoever. For raiding content, however, some groups may feel the loss of the stat bonuses provided through Conquest Power. He said that for Tier 1 and 2 raids, the plan is to automatically provide the extra stats for all groups that enter the raids while Tier 3 raids will be tuned without them. This will let guilds continue progressing without feeling as though they are going backwards.

So, what do you think? Is this is a good move?

    Not a good move this is why we love pvp because of the stat/hp/movement bonuses! its a great loss for me about 2k hp

      Very few people like to be forced into conquest to maintain the stat bonus. I don’t raid, I’m strictly a pvp player and imo conquest is mostly pve with a touch of stacked premade zerg pvp thrown in. Conquest is simply not fun and the only reason I do it is 1) maintain cq power stat bonus and 2) to complete my weekly and daily quests. Conquest would die a horrible death if they didn’t carrot players in. Trion should not let more than a full 5 player group queue together. It ruins the whole concept unless there are premades on every faction during a game, which rarely happens.
