Anyone have any suggestions for really good anti magic melee classes that have good spell survival?

Archers can usually out range mages pretty easily thus picking them off from a safe distance. Very aggressive 2-Handed sword users also shred through mages like paper if they can get the initiation on them which is somewhat difficult since most of them now run Shadowplay with stealth.

very similar to what I will be running

if you want more magic defense drop pain suppression from conjury and pick up rage from combat

What would be the best armor for a build like this?

Medium or Leather armor type are the best for this type of build. Since provide a good magic defense and bonus for ranged/melee attack.

the Fighter build in leather armor, if you will manage to land control on mage before he will do that to you, he will probably die or you can just endure few hard hitting skills from mage (since all they do is put you in stun or sleep and then use their hard hitting combo) and then finish him :) FIGHTER BUILD (http://arche-base.com/builds/generator#1.3.8/TjBv8pkvTbr)

that was my build in RU servers.
1v1 you have lots of CC. thats 90% win if you saw your enemy shortly after hi atacked. or you started fight from stealth
in mass pvp, you get in with 2 gap closer stuns,( Plunge from calling, or rush+triple blow from combat) or 1 realy big range gap closer (shadowstep from calling) kill any one with medium or light armor. use scream of fear from conjury + backflip and you most probably okay to wait reload and do it agein :)

Theres a channeled ability in the Auramancy (will) tree that creates an small AoE zone immune from magic attacks. you may be interested in that :)

I played heavy armored mage in ru version and can say most problems i had fighting calling+combat+necromancy cause he start first and i cant cast , only use my glider + its invulnerability skill to run. From necromancy this class use spears and silence.

No problems fighting archers or normal melee classes. But those ones... Hate them. :)

Of course if i start first he will die. But he use stealth... So it not so easy.

Useless skill - cause it channeled.

melee is just bad for pvp, full stop. It's a pve set up, good for doing dungeons.

In group pvp and ship pvp melee classes are weakest. second place are archers and first mages. The key for victory is ranged damage per second + aoe damage.

I not include support classes.

because a mage can face roll you with no effort. Also in the bigger battles, get even in range for melee and you'll melt like ♥♥♥♥.

Not really. I used heavy armor + will so had good protection with all damage types + skills from will to run in most situations when i going to die... It was really easy to pvp. Ok if i got solo with 2 or more than it going to be dangerous but 1x1 or group x group - i think great.

heavy armour is even worse. No magic defense at all so mages melt you faster.

Try to read posts before u answering. I told used will+heavy. Will = good mdef. Heavy = good pdef.
