I am wondering is rift worth playing? or is it just another biliant wow clone, with solo rush to cap, then pointless raiding where the raid gear has no real purpose? Purpose to me is maybe some faction vs faction land control-based pvp and NO seperate pvp gear, so everyone has to raid if they want the best pve & pvp gear.
I am pretty bored with most mmo's since wow, and looking for something that might be worth playing,
Here are some things I look for.
1: Does the game have raiding worth doing? as in, is raid gear the best gear for pvp? if yes, thats a major plus, because it gives a purpose to raiding where mmo's like world of warcraft there really is no point to raiding due to a lack of stuff to do with the gear.
2: Is Rift yet another mostly or all solo to cap then start to raid mmo? or are groups actually needed outside of instances/dungeons/raids?
3: Is crafting worthwhile? or is it like most mmo's where drops you get from mobs are pretty much always better than anything you can craft.
4: How is the pvp and what kind of pvp modes does the game have? plain stuff like death match do not interest me, I am more interested in team based pvp, whether it be Capture the flag, or land control that grants your faction bonuses.
5: Classes that actually feel a tad diffrent insted of just copy and pasted from 1 mmo to the next.. I beta tested rift way back, and unless it changed since beta it fails number 5, because the classes were pretty much copy and pasted from world of warcraft.
Any replies be apprecated.
Being a pessimist is a win-win pattern of thinking. If you're a pessimist (I'll admit that I am!) you're either:
A. Proven right (if something bad happens)
B. Pleasantly surprised (if something good happens)
Either way, you can't lose! Try it out sometime!
