I have two good friends that I have played mmos for about 15 years. We have hit a wall in EQ2. There is no way to get better gear until you do pugs (yuck) guild groups (drama). Can a small group get anything accomplished in Rift? I realize we will never have the best gear but we have no problem grinding and working for the gear.
So after all that can a group of three have real progress in Rift? Any help would be appreciated.
