Rift

Postby Sarvis » Wed May 25, 2011 6:24 pm

So is anyone playing Rift? I started a 7 day trial yesterday, and just curious what peoples' thoughts are.

First impression on rolling a rogue: Attack that builds combat points? Attack that consumes combo points for extra damage? How, exactly, is this different from WoW?

Second impression: Wait, stealth only lasts 30 seconds? *sigh*

Overall seems interesting though. I like the faster pace of the combat, and the graphics/character design are better in some ways. (Rift is more "realistic" but WoW has a certain artistic charm to it.)

I've seen the game and it was not appealing to me. I haven't tried the game myself , but I know people who have and after 20 minutes of the game; they quit and groaned about what a waste of time and money, and went back to WoW until a better mmo comes out because they are just as sick of wow, too. lol

I'm waiting for knights of the old republic. Stuck on wow until then.

Kifle, I think you'll be a WoW permanent resident even after KOTOR! :)

Lol, quite possibly. I did go on quite a long hiatus (I think a year or so) until about 2 months ago.
