Now all i get to do is jump around in low level areas with about 5 people following me spamming my fanfares and motifs . Im the pied piper!

I've been playing since beta5 and just recently finished up beta6, and I must say that I am quite impressed thus far.
It's very easy to jump right into this game if you've played WoW for any stretch of time as the controls, UI, etc.. all closely resemble it.

The one area that immediately stands out to me is the class system. It's so much more "open" than WoW.
You have 4 classes (Warrior, Cleric, Rogue, Mage) and by utilizing 3 "Souls" (Sub-classes) of the 7+ available per class, you can craft a "Role" (You start with 1, but can purchase 3 more; you can switch between them while out of combat).

As a warrior:
I might tank one instance as Paladin/Warlord/Reaver using my 1st role.
Dual Wield DPS the next as Paragon/Champion/Riftblade using my 2nd role.
Range Nuke DPS the next as Riftblade/Champion/Beastmaster using my 3rd role.
PVP with a Two-Hander as Champion/Vindicator using my 4th role.

This allows all sorts of interesting and unusual ways to play your class to suit the needs at the time.
For example, allowing mages to heal (as chloromancer), rogues to tank (riftstalker) or heal (bard) & clerics to heal via dps (justicar).

I'll be interested in seeing what changes are made in the upcoming patch.

I was invited to the sixth beta, but didn't have time that weekend, but I will certainly try it.

After being out of WoW for a year+, Rift is pretty good. I don't have the time to play an MMO again or else I'd give it a more serious look. I did feel like I enjoyed combat more in WoW, but I'm not very far in Rift.

Funny story actually.

I signed up early for one of those weekend betas with my seconday hotmail email address. When the invite arrived it was automatically filtered into my junk folder. Needless to say, when I finally noticed it sitting there the time limit had expired by literally less than an hour.

I hope I get a chance to play the open beta.

Class Concept is far and away the market leader. They will be riding the balance carousel for sure because of it in PvP. PvE seems decent.

How so? I still don't understand how people think the class system is all that extensive. Compared to total talent trees in WoW, Rift has less. I know there are a lot of games with more than WoW too. It would be nice if you actually got an equal amount of talent points for each tree in Rift. You get one every level for your main tree, but only one every 4 or 5 for your second. I don't think the third tree ever gets its own. Maybe this changes later on, but otherwise I found it far too constrained.

Regardless, I found the game mediocre at best. It isn't nearly as bad as some of the more recent offerings like FF14 or Star Trek Online, but it also isn't revolutionary in any way.

I was in the Alpha and Beta. This game is quite excellent I just there was more time to play than school allows. The polish is excellent on visuals and under the hood.

iono if ima continute playing this game. at beta 6 i reached level 27 and by then enemies were ridiculously strong and killed me in 3-5 hits. it would seem as though a party was necessary, but at that area, there's no one to party with! so you're kinda screwed, then again, it's the beta.
