Many have claimed that Rift is not breaking much new MMO ground but are polishing the best of many other MMOs' features.

Now I know it won’t please everyone (what does?), but to me the way in which Rift allows players to mix and match souls across the four archetypes goes a long way towards lessening the restrictive nature of your typical class-based game. It’s definitely one of the primary reasons I’m looking forward to launch day.
