It doesn't quite matter. He's posting an opinion without providing any grounding for it. For all intents and purposes, he's a troll. And trolls get ignored.
lol kid, I have better pvp gear, higher lvl runes then you...stick to your min of lvl 7 runes and stay out of wh with us lvl 10/9 runes ok ???
I fail to see a valid response there aside for you trying to troll. You were amusing at first, but now you're just plain boring. Post proof or get lost.
Concerning Frightening Presence rubies, unless you're standing still and waiting for people to hit you (good idea when fighting complete noobs or sniping, bad idea when fighting anyone with any pvp experience, or when you're spotted) it increases your survivability. When combined with Catalytic Blood on good acid builds, it can add a rather entertaining amount of time where people are down for the count.
On a similar subject, I've recently begun considering the Willpower vs Conviction balance on my character for pvp. Persistent Willpower food is pretty much a standard when you want to fight seriously, and boosting Conviction by some 60-80 points on average would give a nice chunk of an advantage, even over that. On good timing (trinket + conviction elixir, yes, elixir) you should be able to hit rather pleasant crowd control numbers. I don't know about you, but I like my opponents running for 10+ seconds in fear, only to be hit by an extended stun from neurotoxin, syphoning fever, and then for great justice, another fear. All the while, dps flies.
This approach even serves as a valid counter for the bard cc immunity. Ballade, for all its power, has an opening that can be exploited. Use a cheap cc to crack it open, if it doesn't instantly refresh, drop a heavy one in. If it does, immediately repeat neuro spam, and follow up with explosion on 6 seconds, right after the counter for refreshing Ballade ends. Follow up with fear.
However, against high willpower builds (Healers, I'm looking at you) this approach would merely provide equal chances.
Hmm, Skypirate, a question for you, since you play a FH summoner. Does Unstable Antidote (with rubies) dispel Requiem debuff? I've been quite curious about that, but haven't had the opportunity to test it(or was simply too lazy to do so).
