After some research, I think i've got it.

When making a character you pick a faction, which then is split into three unique races you can choose from, each with their own abilities (such as brief flight for elves)

After choosing your Faction and Race, you then choose an archatype, out of Warrior, Mage, Rogue or Cleric. These then have "Souls" which move your player towards a certain role within the game and can be switched at certain times.

How am I doing so far?

That's pretty much right.

Don't worry too much about being a newbie. JJ is a huge noob and still having fun.


Mage is 23 now, having fun with him. Nice not being one of a million rogues.

They're ok.


Seriously though reason they are cried about is because its a hard class to play well. If you're good they can do some nasty stuff, otherwise... gg. Also pyro relies a bit hard on procs.

Hmm, I might be convinced to try this. Is it still in beta or...?


I was going to eat hot dogs for dinner tonight. I think I will settle for cereal.

If only steam saved conversations, I'd have a full book of your newbie questions :D.


And the game's been released for a couple of weeks or so.

So the first big patch is released. I've seen some nice things and some "why would they do that" things. I'm curious to see the YouTube addition, I hope it's nice.

Yeah kind of. We had hopes that world PvP would be emphasized more in this game, with rifts and all, but it turns out it really wasn't. Didn't feel like getting to 50 just to get another bg/wf/scenario/whatever grinding game.

Plus I think the whole teenage girl thing will end soon (hopefully), because my girlfriend is absolutely in love with him(she is 18), and im beginning to feel threatened by his [Justin Bieber] dashing looks.

Recently acquired Rift.

Level 26 Rogue, Marksman Ranger (Bard, but I'm putting no points into it)

Been enjoying it generally, but my PC is so low spec that on the lowest settings I still lag, although it says something about my drivers, and I still haven't updated them.

One thing that annoying me a bit, is the Rifts in general. So many higher level players kill off the mobs before I can actually get my good attacks in, that I just end up low on the damage dealing table. I can only shoot out around a few arrows before the mob is killed, and then the lag makes it hard to target a new one before they're killed too.

Although I like the general vibe of Rift (WoW clone) as I did like WoW, some of the different concepts are nice.

It's a REALLY big shaft.

I didn't catch fire, I used the can of hairspray as a flamethrower and pointed it at my arm.

how are you going to ignore my posts when I'm offering to let you live as my vassal in two weeks time?

I'm in for another 3 months. It's only costing me $35 and since I'm not really playing any other PC games right now and enjoying RIFT (now a level 29 rogue) I might as well. It's nice to be able to play a MMO and not be addicted to it. RIFT is fun but I don't find myself craving to play it at random times throughout the day (like I did occasionally with RS).

By the way, for those considering upgrading for this, an i5-2500k made a huge difference for me. I don't lag anymore, period. Even at the boss invasions where there are like 100 people, it stays smooth.

You guys who are enjoying it: how many of you have played other MMOs (other than RS or f2p ones)? Just kind of curious.

I will say though that I'm not too hard on RIFT because I'm glad they at least tried to move something in a new direction. I still don't like the concept of an "endgame" (where your only progression is through gear) but that's just me.
