Default RIFT

I could swear this had a thread. I know several of you play it. WHAT GIVES?

Anyway, a friend of mine let me use his account since they don't have trials yet and I wanted to see how it played. Have a low level Defiant cleric:

Ben wants to play this because he loves how he can fuck with each class's tree and make godly pvp builds.

Because me and cloft fear the whips.

On a sidenote: I play on keenblade. I know I know it's a PvE but thats where my friends were playing.

PS Guardians suck.

I went Defiant just 'cause they look better.

Also, fun fact: If you want to start a flame war, make a reference to night elves in the general channel.

I played the beta. Anytime you referenced ANYTHING from WoW they get mad.

Also the game is fun during Rift invasions, but I eventually got bored of it during the last beta weekend.

I was all, "Why is Arthas' horse called Invincible if you're able to see him?"

General channel went ape shit.

I'm pretty certain this game is going to die pretty quick like most mmos. Would be happy to be proven otherwise, though.

I will say that the one thing I didn't like was the lack of fast travel. These zones are HUGE, and if you don't have the gold for a mount, it feels like leveling in the old Barrens. That god they changed it so that you can get a mount at any level. It was at level 20 before.

This game wants to be WoW so bad, it's not even funny. I'm enjoying it, though. So far.

I kinda figured that after seeing the "not in Azeroth anymore ads" contrasted with your screenshot. But if it's fun...

Although I feel like a utter chump using any of the recommended soul builds, a bard with flaming daggers is pretty fly.

So instead of doing free trials like WoW or Warhammer, they're holding a contest for Guild masters so they can give free trials to their friends.
