RIFT

Postby Adaar » Mon, 17 Jan 2011 17:54 -06

http://www.riftgame.com/en/

I will be trying this out, sounds awesome like a Dark Age of Camelot, World of Warcraft and Warhammer Online all rolling into one. Open world PvP, Public Quest (aka the Rift part), raids, evolving dungeons, can spec into 3 classes at once, awesome graphics, ect. Read up on it.

Did you preorder (and get the open beta invites)? I played 2 weekends ago and it was pretty fun.

Ordered on Steam, haven't seen anything about beta yet. Have set up account and put in my pre order code, but no email about beta.

On my Trion account, says I haven't been invited to a beta.


edit** After reading up somemore on it, seems the Beta is down until Jan. 25

Yeah, sorry, it's not "open". It has beta events that pre-orders get access to...the first one I played in was a coupe of weeks ago.

I believe I am getting this game. This actually was the first I've heard of it (havent been searching). But it looks like a lot of fun. I love the vast class system and I'm glad they are bringing back what real support classes are like. I'm thinking of a rolling a Bard, or maybe a Cabalist. I haven't decided but it looks very promising.

Yeah, My rogue is gonna love getting some Ranger skills to prevent some enemies fleeing. Yeah miss true support classes since DAoC. Love to see AoE Mezz come in this game too, gank group INC!

Only thing not in, Sieges, haven't seen or read anything about it. Player Housing is coming a few monthes after launch. And I love how the dungeons will change and open up new boss depending on your level. I'll have to look up some videos to post here, seen a few good ones. And the Cleric class is supposedly OP in the last beta *cough*Cleon*cough*.

Adaar! Dang man, you fell off the face of the earth. We missed you.

Rift looks interesting. I definitely would like to see a Cleric class again, and get my name Cleon back, hah.

Anyhow, I won't be able to play anything until I get officially moved to Foley. I am hoping to be back online in full capacity in a couple of weeks.

Hope all is well on your end, Adaar.

If you ever feel like swinging back by in WoW, you know where we are.

Although, we've sort of died down a little since Cataclysm launched due to my absences these past few weeks.

Hoping to get things revived again real soon.

Same situation with me Cleon, since the holiday's I haven't had much time to play... Let alone resubscribe to Cataclysm. I think Cleon any everyone else should merge on over to Rift. :) The game seems to be really shaping up and will only continue to look better, and I would like to honor the name of KoV in Rift. Also, I miss the Chapel, behind Camelot, guild meetings, there HAS to be a chapel in Rift.

Yeah the Chapel was cool when events were held. Remember getting 2nd place in a melee tournament there with my reaver.

So, I added the Beta Key thing.

Not sure I can do anything until this weekend. Is the game already playable in Beta?

If so, where do I DL it?

Good news is they extended the beta 5 til Saturday morning at 10 a.m. PST.

First you gotta create an account, enter the code, then wait for the beta email (some people took hours, some people I talked to took minutes). When you get the email it'll direct you to your account page which the launcher zip file can be downloaded from the bottom of the page. Unzip and install launcher and run it, it'll download the game.

Yes its playable, laggy, but everything is there from lvl 1 to 30. Battle Grounds, Rifts, ect.

Level 17 Bard/Ranger and loving it!

I got my client invitation before I finished posting my question on how to get it.

Seems to have resolved itself.

I might be seeing you sometime this week.

I was assuming just joining whatever server Adaar is on. Dayblind, or such.

Seems I still have a 5 gig DL, so I am heading to bed for now since work is early.

I will try to make time to come online tomorrow night, though.

Been goofing off on Gnarlwood, have a 16 Druid/Warden/Justicar on Defiant

I will see if I can get on your server tomorrow, pretty sure characters will get reset after Sat.

Started a new Cleric on your server, Leonthor.

They haven't been deleted characters between beta events. Not sure if there's another one scheduled before open-beta (assuming they're having one) or launch.
