I'm looking for a new game and I'm considering Rift. I used to play it years ago and I really liked the warfronts. So I'm hoping it's somewhat similar now.
Can someone explain to me how acquiring pvp gear works now?
Are there gear vendors still? Is the gear just purchased through points earned in warfronts? .. Or is the cash shop somehow intertwined with that where you would also have to purchase something with real money to access the gear? .. like lockboxes or anything?
Are there different ranks of pvp gear that you have to grind through where each rank requires the previous rank in order to purchase it?
