I just wanted to show you guys a little glimpse of whats to come in Rift. The new expansion is literally around the corner. And we can show you guys a whole lot more of the game now. Not everything and not everything is in to show. But in this video I'll show you some nice sights. And the up and coming Mastery System. As well as the new minion system.
The Mastery System serves as an extension of the Soul system we already have. After lvl 60 when you hit lvl 61. You get a soul point. These points allow you to choose between the new mastery skills. They can be passives or actual skills. It's designed to open up the choices a bit on the soul trees.
The Minion System is a new mini game of sorts. You can find and collect new minion monsters. That you can send on quests around the game's world. It appears it can be very lucrative to you. If you pay attention to this system and level minions. Stay tuned on this one because it isn't working yet to its fullest extent.
What I always wanted was for Rift to actually have build Parity.You can force it like how I've done in the past. But by it's core Rift doesn't encourage you to do it. You're not really rewarded in the system as it is now. So I am just explaining how it can happen in this video.
On Sunday 8th coming up. I will be join Kiwi's live stream to discuss all things Trion. She will be doing giveaway's so you can check her link here for that info http://riftdreamdimensions.com/?p=7643
Also take note we will be joined by MATT FLEMING: Trion Defiance Content Designer Former Rift QA
It's should be a fun time and maybe you will win something
Yea..so I logged on and was like I'm going to buy me some souls...
Hmm 5000 credits wow and the wife is annoyed at me already for game spending. Looks like I'll be farming this one out. So with that said which soul do you guys like the most? Even though I am a cleric user. I think I'm going to go with Liberator.
I know that may bring a few gasp. Like wow really a warrior soul? But I think this one is the most well designed skill wise. Not that the others are bad. And what do you guys think about the price of the souls? I'm a little uncomfortable with souls, almost being equal to the cost of full games.
I can farm out 5000 credits actually pretty fast nowadays. But with that said many just don't have that time. So it leaves me a little shaky on how I feel about it. But at the end of the day they're worth it. So I'll be farming them rather than risking wife aggro.
A lot of time when I say Rift is the best free to play out. People scoff at me and question me. It's very hard to explain why in short responses. So I felt it was time to make a video explaining a little more how I feel on that. I get to see a lot of free to play games in the world. So I'm speaking from a far bigger spectrum then just western games.
Rift for starters is very cost effective and time effective. In the day and age of time is money. This is an excellent thing to have in one game. Now what i mean by that is this. Time spent in the game can be very lucrative towards your goals. It's not pay gated or restricted. What restrictions you do have as a free player. Can easily be negated with a little work, and friendship with other gamers. A good guild can help you earn in game credits. That can get rid of many restrictions you have rather quickly.
When I say cost effective, save a few outrageous things. Rift is not a very expensive game to play. And once you're used to the game. You can easily pay for the monthly patron fee's with in game credits. But if you don't have time for all that. You can pay a little to keep the patron. Which again if you atleast do a little in game. You can lower the price you actually pay for it. By earning credits so you won't need to spend the full price for patron.
If you look around at other games. That are free to play. I challenge you to find one as freely playable as Rift. And has as much to do as Rift. Games that come to mind are anything Perfect World made. Yea no to all of them except Star Trek Online. But even that game you need to pay at end game or be really nerfed. I know some like to throw Swtor at us. But That maybe the worse example. The game is so restrictive, it feels like the Force is beating 15 bucks out of you.
A knock on Rift is it's pvp. Well...every single game I've seen in this genre world wide has the same issues. Zerging pvp/pve balancing which is impossible. And the mob mentality that no company can really change. So when you single out one game, you really are ignoring the problem pvp has in mmo's in general. This is why I'm not THAT hard on Rift. Yes Conquest is a mess but it's one that can be fixed. But that is a different story all together.
In general in my opinion Rift is the best out there free to play world wide. No my opinion doesn't matter any more than you. But I'm just putting it out there for anyone on the fence. Interesting enough though for you guys. The next game that may just bump it for that spot is Trion Published as well GG Sirs.
A big thanks first of all to the Dev Team for Rift. Who used two of my builds I made Lawbringer and Holy Fire Shaman. As presets for cleric in the beginning of the game. I had no idea until I started getting congrats on the forums. And I was like what are you guys talking about lol? I looked for the first time in this video. So I'm taking the time to say thanks live on you tube. So I bow my head to the team in appreciation.
In other news I would like to know what is you're motivation for playing Rift? Mine is to keep getting stronger preparing for 3.0. And now 2.7 arrival of the 4 new classes. It will be time for me to make new builds. I have one already in mind testing out things in the past. But that aside what is your reason for beasting across the lands of Rift?
Builds I'm Talking About Are
Grats to Seatin and Grinnz who also made builds added to the game
Past Episodes will be below this will be a ongoing post. So I won't have to have posts everywhere.
