    The trailer looks really good, but i'm SO done with games that basicly go "reach max level -> get gear -> raid".

    Also, they should have updated their ugly and unstylish forums already, so that it matches to the overall theme of the game a bit more.

    The addon might be on steam for less then 10Eur soon enough, perhaps i'll check it out then.

    The game is'nt like that, its moslty reach max and do whatever you wanna do, go do some dungeons, raids, Chronicles(solo duo dungeons) Dimensions(Player housing), Slivers ( 10 man raids, much smaller group), PVP, conquest. They're not focusing Just on raids, thats what i LOVE about Rift!!

    while the best gear is earned from raids you earn the currency to purchase that gear from everything in the game.  Dungeons, 10 mans, 20 man raids, some daily quest/weekly quest etc.   You could never do a 10 or 20 man raid and have the raid gear.

     

    Trion does such a great job with the trailers adding the actual game play makes them way better.

    It does amaze me how people, and this isnt exclusively Rift, accuse games of being 'all about the raiders'. I would bet less than 25% of Rifts players raid current content and theyve only released one raid in the last 13 months or so, instead working on other content.  For the less hardcore they have the slivers, which are only 10 people and significantly more forgiving than the raid content (I would say they are equivalent in difficulty to WoW's normal mode raids where the 20 man raids are equal to WoWs heroics in difficulty)

    With all their updates, 1 raid and 2 slivers in the last year is hardly focused only on raiders

    There's a lot of stuff to do in Rift.

    Especially since SL arrives today.

    This said the best gear in the game comes from PvP or Raiding.

    except you can get the main pieces of raid ear without raiding.
