Hi guys, I've recently started collecting the mythic leads and I'm at the point where I'd like to go to the IC. A couple of things to consider: I've been once to a delve in Cyrodiil in my PVE gear and I noticed that I took slightly longer to kill things (because of battle spirit maybe?) compared to non-Cyrodiil places and also, I can easily solo world bosses (outside of PVP zones) providing I switch one set to heavy armour (leeching). Also, I've got an "in your face" approach (I tank in dungeons).
So, now that I supposedly aim at putting down an IC district boss, I've got some questions:
Are IC districts controlled by alliances?
How to stand a chance if I'm attacked by another player? I have no hope to defeat a good player, and I don't plan to attack anyone, but I'd like to have a chance to fight back a little without gimping myself too much for the PVE stuff. If I were to follow some PVP build that I read online, I think I wouldn't be able to kill PVE things as I do now. Also, I'm not sure if leeching works great because of the healing or the extra protection, but if it's the former than it might not work well in IC due to the healing being halved.
I'm not very good, hopefully, I'll improve but for the time being I get things done in rattlecage jewels and weapons (quite redundant, I know) and mother's sorrow. I swap MS for leeching when I solo world bosses. I'm thinking about going all offensive for IC in heavy armour maybe putting Rattlecage on the body, and MS on weapons/jewellery or maybe something like Spinner's would be better to offset the lack of penetration due to heavy armour?
