Crit+ Essences that someone doing just PVP can get?Follow

Just as the title says. Pretty much from 25-50 all I did was PVP and do instances so when I got to level 50 I basically had nothing but favor with some blues from instances. Now I'm trying to get some essences and get my physical crit as high as possible and I'm realizing that everything (at least from what I'm seeing) requires rift items, expert dungeon items, raid items, etc.

So are there any essences out there that a purely PVP rogue can get? It's fun to PVP... It's not fun to grind rifts all day, and right now I don't have the time to do expert dungeons and much less raids.

Thanks.

I'm reasonably sure that essences (lesser and greater) pretty much only come from Rift-based activities, whether that's closing rifts or killing invaders or doing zone-wide events. The only essences I can think of are purchased with rift currency.

If you've got some platinum weighing you down though, you can always take a look at the auction house and see what other people have put up in the way of essences. I've found that getting lesser essences on the AH is pretty hit or miss though (greaters are easy).

Yup, rifts. Expert rifts, raid rifts, planar currency. Those are your options. The game is set up so that you can get much of the gear you need to be competitive in PvP through PvP activities, but you don't get to do only PvP if you want to be well rounded.

Ok, thanks, makes sense I suppose.

So I found this lesser planar essence. Since I don't raid is that about the best I'm going to get for physical crit? Is there a cheaper alternative (it costs 3 corrupted sourceshards)?

EDIT: Or a better one thats obtainable without raiding?

EDIT2: Also found this. How does this compare to just a basic +12 crit in PVP?

Do zone events in Stillmoor and Shimmersands (and I think IPP). Join a guild that does expert rifts and rift raids and tag along (make sure to pick up the dailies). Dexterity is better than crit. Dexterity for rogues and warriors is 1:1 physical crit as well as AP and dodge.

Dexterity IS better than crit, but crit is better than AP. So since every lesser essence you're going to use on a rogue already has Dex on it shoot for the ones with crit as a secondary stat.

1 point of DEX = 1 point of Crit and Dodge Rating and 0.5 points of AP for a Rogue
