*Release* Rift Catch-All - if it isnt for any of the other threads - it goes here

Which server must I go, and what "race"? and.. what would you guys suggest for someone who like Healing. I used to be a tank in other MMO, but always go for the healer route for casual play.

No recommendation on server - I played on Shatterbone, Guardian though. Race is pretty irrelevant, so choose based on looks, etc. If you really care about min/maxing, the run speed increase on Defiant is good while the run speed increase on Guardian is pretty crap (it's a group buff, but the range is extremely short and it's on a longer cooldown). The jump is actually a better overall travel speed increase, it's just annoying to use very much. Probably the most useful of the racial skills that I recall is the dwarf falling damage reduction.

If you want to play a healer, you should go cleric. They have pure single-target healer specs, decent aoe healing specs, a decent tanking spec that's slow to build aggro, and some interesting dps/heal hybrids as well as a couple decent dps specs for casual play. You can also heal as a mage with chloromancer, but it's harder to do at lower levels and with lesser equipment, while cleric has many options and many viable specs even at the raiding level.

Urgh, just downloaded like 7.9 gigs on steam, and now it's doing a 3.24gigs patch.. why isn't there download optimization? :S

And again yesterday, another 3.24gigs.. wow..

Anyway, was able to play my first few hour. Already at level 8. Love the intro, but I dunno, the control seems a bit sketchy at first.

What's the max Level and money in the trial? And is there restriction again to speak to others?

I don't know about a gold cap, but if it exists you're not going to hit it unless you're ordering Chinese take out. There actually isn't a level cap on the trial as far as I know, but it won't let you enter any of the 20+ zones. You're restricted to your "newbie" zone and faction capital city. You also won't be able to use the auction house.

FYI

Thought you bought it with the last Steam sale at 10$ for the CE.. choo! But use Cobble's code for the 7 days trial for a try out, or else, you won't received those trials days at all. Is that the new CE options tho? or the new one at 10$?

No.. I chickened out It's not the new CE (can't remember the name), but I had $7 credit at GMG so I got it for 3 bucks. I think I'll do the 7 day trial and then sub.. not to mention it's free this weekend.

Cleric Cabalist sounds awesome.

Well, I have been doing some small level pvp.. Cleric are hard to take down if you go full heal.. I had a blast, what I was expecting! Well, the kind of PVP I wanted for a LONG time...

Now, how do I stop my leveling? If let's say, I want to twink myself in low level pvp? I have been leveling 2 level now with that. 30 minutes matches, did like 3 in a row. When your team knows where they are going, I follow them and go pocket medic on them.. ;P

I might be too chatty, but the channel for the GWJ seems silent from time to time. Are you guys doing mainly your chatting in the Immortalis' guild chat?

If everything goes well as I see it now, I'll renew for another month, that's for sure.

Glad to hear you are liking in Manach. Nice running into you in-game. My gaming time is spotty.. but perhaps I'll see you in there.

No, there's no real way to slow down your levelling aside from doing nothing other than PvPing. In fact, when I was playing, I started it as soon as I possibly could -- that kind of means making a long run to a capitol city, but that's not too big an issue.

Well, you gain Xps in Pvp matches.. :S So, in a term, I'll still level.

You gains tons of xp in pvp, thats why i dont do it at all until 50. you can really trivialize content that way easy.

Yes, but doing nothing else allows you the most PvP matches.

Well, I'm into the next region. Level 20 and up!

I might jump in Pvp sometimes again, but I did realize they didn't implement anything for twinkers. No stop Xp, no loot with Pvp reward. That's sad.

But still, I'm still looking for a cusual group/mature group that would accept a lowbie. Seems Immortalis now search to complete there Raid Roosters, which I can't do due to time restriction.

Rift is going for free on GMG right now. It might be a UK only promotion as it's linked against one of our tabloids.

Hmmmm, seems there's some new account security thingy since I did my trials.

The only thing visible for free from a US IP is the trial.

Anyone who likes MMOs and lives in a region where you can get it for free would be crazy not to give Rift a try though.

Login to your GMG account with a UK proxy and it works fine.

I got 2 keys for friends.

Before I apply my key to a new account, is there anyone who wants some referral thingy?

Well, if one more person signs up with my LINK I do get a free horse.

Edit: That also lets you play your first 7 days for free before you actually need to enter your code, an XP boost up till level 20, and a character title.

Humm, got a question.

Could we still join the GWJ's guild on Shatterbone?

Why? Immortalis is looking for Raiders, not casual, at least of what I have discuss with someone on the GWJalliance channel.

Or does a few goodjers know where I could find somewhat something similar to what I ask?

I'm about to start a character, I guess on Shatterbone. I'll keep an eye open for any GWJers

Character is 'Freckled Sleipnir', a mage currently Stormcaller/Domination.

After an absence of several months, I logged back in a few weeks ago with the intention of getting one last stroll through telara before letting my six-month subscription lapse, and ended up getting hooked again. So, yeah. I don't remember why I stopped playing in the first place.

Also, there is this:

Hrm. Maybe I'll jump back in and give this a whirl again. Can't remember why I fell off the bandwagon, but the change in the weather always puts me in the mood to tuck back into the MMO cocoon.

I finally activated my sub, and I'm having a blast. I know this is a total WoW ripoff, but it feels so fresh. Must be the unfamiliar lore, locations, etc. As a casual MMO'er this is really scratching that itch of sitting down and playing for 45 min. or so, and feeling like I've accomplished something. I can be grinding mobs and all of a sudden a rift pops in, or an invasion happens.

I did laugh when I saw the Christmas rifts, the graphics are so crappy compared to the rest of the game, it's almost comical.

Seems Trion was hacked as well : http://www.trionworlds.com/en/games/...

Man.. I'm really getting sick of these hacks.

I was bored after work last night and since the DA:O/DA:2 sale on Amazon wasn't going yet I decided to grab the demo for Rift and I've gotta say I've been having fun with it.

Walmart also has it for sale for only $10. I'm considering picking this up, but was curious if anyone here was still playing. I'm on Greybriar right now, but I don't have any problem with starting over somewhere else since I'm not that far along just yet.

Not sure if people still play but I put 300 hours into it at launch. It does some fun stuff and the class system is really good. Enjoy!

Staked, if you wanna hook up with GWJ folk in RIFT, you can look at the guild Immortalis. We merged with them quite a while back, and all forum activity moved to their site.
