You dont play Rift for free >.>

Also, if anybody is on the edge of buying this game, but is worried it isn't any different from any MMO.. well.. you're wrong

I've been playing WoW on and off for.. 5 years? And the first night of Rift, I already think it is a much better game.

I have yet to find something I dislike about Rift, especially compared to WoW. It has a great photorealistic quality to it, and the graphics are beautiful (I'm on Ultra with great FPS). The sound is fantastic too. The music is great.. there's battle music like Final Fantasy >.>

The class system requires you to be creative, and gives you an awesome amount of freedom to create a class really. It's been good fun for me and my brother.

We both rolled toons on Neddra, on the Guardians.

My name is Lux, I'm a mathosian mage
He is Garen, mathosian warrior

We're going to start a guild called League of Legends

TL;DR - Rift is better than WoW IMO, as it has many of WoW's great ideas, but it has improved on them. And it isn't cartoony like WoW. Visual effects, sound, graphics quality, concept, storyline, classes, battlegrounds.. ALL of them are better in Rift than WoW IMO.

The blatant obsession with dethroning WoW really kills me.

And then I saw..."we're not in Azeroth anymore".

Any rogues out there looking for a good grinding spec, go 13 Riftstalker/up to 36 Bladedancer/up to 25 Assassin. I'm currently level 41 using this spec: http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=1M...Vh0MRM.0VRcL0o and there is absolutely no downtime due to the Rift Scavenger talent in the Riftstalker tree. Final spec I'm building towards is http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=1M...oMRGbz.hVRcx0b.

As for how to grind most effectively, keep up these buffs (in order of priority): False Blade, Guarded Steel, Dauntless Strike, Annihilation. If all buffs are up and have over 6 seconds remaining, use Final Blow as your closer. Priority for CP building skills is: Puncture > Precision Strike > Reprisal (when available) > Quick Strike > Keen Strike. Open from a distance with Expose Weakness when possible and charge in using Flash of Steel. Try to leave as many combo points as possible on the enemy when you kill them if you need health (6% per CP is restored). If you get more than 2 enemies on you, use Side Steps to increase your dodge chance. Dodge chance is our friend in this spec, due to the Strike Back and Reprisal talents in the Bladedancer soul. Strike Back automatically attacks with both weapons after dodging an attack, and Reprisal is a reactive ability that you can only use after dodging an attack which never misses. Pretty dominant spec.

The more I play this game, the more I'm realizing I hate the community. Too many carebears. Maybe I'm "hardcore" or "elitist," but I feel like someone should carry their weight in a dungeon group or not go. I've been flamed incessantly on the official forums due to my support for damage meters and the information they bring to a group. Every response is something along the lines of "herpderp you should help them get better!" Now, I think pretty highly of my intelligence and such, but how am I supposed to help people whose classes I have never played? The community is really killing this for me, and I doubt I renew after my free month. Sad, but true. I really enjoy the game, but I feel like a square peg and the community is a round hole.

I wouldn't stress man. Vanilla WoW was full of the same. Rift is just in its infancy, and not everyone has played an MMO before. I too want some addons for the game to track the stats, but they will come in time. Rift is a lot of fun, and as much as I occasionally hate the Rifts that spawn, the community can be good. Keep an eye out for those that are great players and guild up.
