Well, I play on a PvE server, so I don't know what might be up on the PvP servers. I do know that the first 2 beta events were only using 1 faction (i.e., Beta1 = Defiant only, Beta2 = Guardian only) so there were no PvP events on the PvE server. I assume it was the same on the PvP servers, since I don't think they are open-world free-for-all PvP. The next Beta event will include both Guardians and Defiant and there should be PvP testing going on then.

As for balance, I'm fairly certain that I read that the devs weren't that worried about balancing individual classes/souls. They are more wanting to make sure that every Calling has at least 1 viable PvP build. So there will be at least 1 balanced and viable Cleric build you can PvP with, but if you spend all of your Soul points in healing Clerics you might not have a viable PvP build. Not positive of this as I can't find the quote I'm remembering...

The problem with talking about PvE is how to say anything useful while not violating the NDA. There are tons of things I would love to tell you about, but I don't want to lose my Beta access. I will say that the PvE style is very familiar. That's good in some ways and bad in others. The thing that really shines out to me from Rift PvE is the Invasions and the Rift mechanisms. It brings a dynamic that's like nothing else I've seen or felt and I really love it.
