    Kunark was massive, it will probably never be rivaled.  Kunark is bigger than most games.

    Machines... I like hi tech in fantasy games for some reson. Final fantasy always had a lot of those things so it's cool to see it in Rift.

    WoW! That's pretty much all I can say.

    The end of the article on GS says "Expect to lose sleep fall of 2012" so hopefully we'll see by end of October or so.

    3 faction pvp waiting in the wings, and now a new xpac. Glad I just came back!

    Not sure if I'm more excited for this or 3-faction Conquest.

    7 dungeons and 3 raids.

    Do not get me wrong I think all the stuff they are adding to the game is great.

    People that enjoy Rift will love all this stuff.

    But...

    When i was playing many of the players I knew left because they ate through the 10 dungeons and three raids Trion offered within the first few months. Basically saying Rift didn't have enough endgame content to keep the playerbase happy.

    From looking at this it seems the expansion will be turning all the existing content obsolete (something I never agree with) through a new level cap. 

    They will be replacing 2-3 chronicles, 10 dungeons, 3 ten man raids and 3 twenty man raids with 7 dungeons, 3 raids and 1 chronicle... Wouldnt that be shrinking the amount of endgame content the game has? 

     

    Anyway thats my issue.

    I'd say Rift has easily outpaced every other MMO for first year and second year content on their release though.

     

     

     

     

    See the thing with Trion and Rift is... They had to whip up new content fast as the game was tiny at release, casual players saw all content within their first month. Also there is the problem of quality over quantity releasing loads of new stuff is great only if it is of a certain quality and does Trion's superfast content releases come up to standard? I'll find out soon I just won a digital copy through Raptr and as a beta player that never purchased the game its going to be very interesting to see if the Rift fans have been crying wolf or not.

    No, your wrong, once you left they added, New level 50 zone..Ember isle witch brung new quests, tons of new raids, dungeons and chronicles (solo duo dungeons) and much more. So they have lots of end game content, plus they added planer attunment which made the game even better then just leveling.

    So they will be making even more content obsolete with the expansion then? because if they raise the level all that stuff you added will be replaced by the new endgame which is 7 dungeons and 3 raids.

    Am I wrong?

    Trion is pretty smart. i would guess they would increase all the raids, dungeons, chronicles, etc to level 60 to increase the ammount of content instead of decreasing it.

    Did someone really say that SWTOR features more content than Rift?

    If they did that then that would be amazing. 

    Lets hope this si what happens. 

    I just talked to my brother and we may come back to the game once this expansion releases for a three month stay.

    SWTOR has more questing content, Rift has more endgame stuff.

    Depending on whats important to you is how you would determine which game offers more bang for the buck.

    Hopefully, that's what they'll do. 

     

    They should make it so all the old dungeons becomes available as level-60 Experts and Master Modes!

    I'm not so sure regarding what should be done to the old raids, though...

    Fair enough. I'm more about endgame and spending  tens of millions for vo work vs spending that on gameplay is an easy decision for me.

    ok wow.. i feel kinda lame here, but someone just replied to this in another thread and had a great response. we can use the montoring system to drop everyone in the raid to that level and make all content challenging again. the drops would blow, but the raids would be viable for a challenge. farming achievements, etc.

    still would be nice if they upgraded the old content though. they would have to upgrade the current experts and chronicles, but that's a no brainer. the raids are what i'm curious about.

    I have to give it to Trion for releasing content this fast. First 3 faction pvp and now a full expansion with housing of all things.

  • FrodoFraginsFrodoFragins Manchester, NHPosts: 2,932Member Uncommon

    Good for them.

  • CoolitCoolit FalkirkPosts: 468Member Uncommon

    Topped all my expectations by far :)

    Simply cant wait for this to be released and knowing how Trion operate I'd expect there to be a massive world event unlike any other, cant wait...

    I thought the trailer was epic also, it may have been short but was very well done.

    The Gamepot article said something about it coming this fall. I don't know though, this expansion is huge, how far along are they is the question to ask first.

    Unless they do what WOW did and make heroic modes. ID just came out, I would hope they push all of the raids to level 60. I hope they let us trade in the gear we have been grinding as well.

    Anyway thats my issue. 

    Rift has as much or more end game content than any game the same age or less. There is always something to do. Whether it be expert or master dungeons, rift raids, crafting rifts, 10 or 20 man raids, a ton of dailies. I don't PVP, but there is plenty of that going onnot to mention the non combat activities.  Not to mention crafting, which has a commuity of it's own. I never have problems finding a group, and the overall community is active and large.

    They have not announced what will happen to current raids, if they will bump them to 60 or not. I would hope so since those raids figure largely in the weekly reward raids. Adding 3 to the mix would be a nice variety for end game content.

    Trion is very good art listening to it's players. If enough people want the current raids to be bumped to the new end game, they will do it. I for one hope they do it.

    all there is to do in rift at end game is dungeons or instanced pvp..like every other themepark mmo. the quest system is the most horrible system i've seen. complete this quest to do this quest and continue following the chain..its ok if you're a mindless zombie and on top that 90% of  quests are kill x of y.
