Rift Thread - Page 70

post #691 of 761
I play on Wolfsbane we have a queue several nights of the week prolly number 1-2 in size but Im growing tired of the game Im waiting on my sub to run out I was dumb and bought a 6mo sub during beta when the game was fun they nurf classes monthly and have FOM. worse then WoW and even dumbed the game down so they could be like WoW. I see it going F2P in the near future, waiting on Tera myself, its a great game 1-49 lots to do when you hit 50 its the same ole grind for gear and rep etc. the devlopers all came from other failed games and its hard to teach an old dogs new tricks. but again this is my opinion played since beta 3. you can make a lv 50 toon in /played 3-4 days if you set out to do so I have 1 lv 50 and 3 other lv 37+ and I only lv the alts up threw dungeons no questing with the LFG system all of them have less then 4 days played at all since they only have 1 starting area for each faction I couldnt bear to go threw those same quest again.

I find the game a breath of fresh air, since I came from eq2. I play early mornings, late afternoons, etc. What ever my work schedule dictates. You can't expect basket ball star when its just taking baby steps. Nerds happen , its called balance.

lol I think ya meant....nerfs ? And yeah, that happens in every MMO I've played and ya either hate or like it. Gotta just roll with it and adapt or simply quit. Most the time I've adapted, but it takes some getting used to depending how much has changed.

Anyways ...I think I'll skip Rift (sorry Rift fans) and wait on GW2 and/or KOR. I may as well just resub to WoW if it's basically the same ol'thing with some little differences here and there.

They have rolled out I think hotfix number 3 so far. Better than leaving it broken passed its time and then wasting the resources to fix it when it doesn't matter.

I play on Braircliff under the same name good game but Im bored with it already yes it has endless possibilities but in regards to content and difficulty its too child friendly for a player with serious raid experience. Oh and not to mention the game doesnt support Xfire.. They really need to fix that its been months already *** ?

It's been a while since I played this game. Have they done anything about gear looks? It wasn't so long ago (mid May?) I stopped playing, and back then higher level armor and weapons didn't look much different from low levels, that's the main reason I quit.
And what about wardrobe? Any changes to it? I didn't like the part where I couldn't use armor higher level than my character (or chain for example if my character used only leather). Did they make any of it possible?

In terms of looks it seems like the higher level armor looks better now. Only been playing a couple weeks and not level 50 but when I see level 50 people they certainly look fancy.

I've played wow since vanilla but all the friends I have made along the way have quit or scattered accross different servers. I can no longer raid with my new work schedule and all of my former arena people on my servers have dissappeared. Pugging usually leads to more headahces than fun. Theres just nothing to do in wow solo except lvling alts that I'm bored of lvling. I like a lot of the changes they made in cata, I really haven't been able to raid though because of my new job. But I'm just bored. WoW's crowning achievement for questing was the death knight starting zone. The 80-85 stretch is easy but after 3 toons to 85 I'm bored. They might as well just auto level us to 85.

I saw the father's day sale for rift and had a friend playing so I tried it out. The collector's edition bag and mount are worth it trust me lol. After staring at wow for the past 6 years the graphics are refreshing. Not too good but not dated. I am definitely cpu bound with my rig, I can change video settings and get the same fps. The UI and hot keys makes it real easy to transition from wow. It's like they just ripped them off, I hope they don't get sued lol.

The Class system is pretty cool. I've always wanted the ability to play every class in wow but its just way too time consuming. In rift you just need 4 toons. Theres just endless combinations to tinker with. This does however bring up some issues. Currently most of the best specs in rift don't have 51 pionts in one tree, they are hybrids. The bottom half of the trees are just too good.

I leveled to 30 in 4 days. The pace of the game feels really good to me so far. Not to grindy but not too ez. The rifts break up the monotony of leveling. I was chasing every rift I could find and was lvl 23 when I left the first zone lol. I decided to lvl a tank class becuase I figured it would be impossible to find a group as a dps. I do have wow tanking experience. DPS queue has never popped for me so far as I'm still working on my tank gear :/ Hopefully 30-50 keeps the same pace as the first 30. I kinda feel like theres less people closing rifts in my current zone
