I'm enjoying Rift and feel it was worth the money spent. My character is currently 26 so I can only vouch for content up to that level... but what I have done so far has been worth trying it out.It has similarities to Wow. A lot of them. For me I find that very appealing because a lot of my skills and knowledge from WoW can transfer over. Instead of putting on a pair of new dress shoes, this game is a pair of comfortable slippers. The familiarity lets you slip into the game with out too much fuss. At the same time, there is a lot to learn, but its a softer learning curve when you have a WoW background.It also draws some of the things that are fantastic in other games. I used to LOVE collections in EQ2. I got rather obsessive over the shiny. Yep. Artifact collecting in this game is similar. Lots of fun, lots of rewards, lots of obsession... and that shiny lil glowing ball on the ground... is practically the same. I love it.I'm really enjoying the Rift events. Best I can describe them, is ...well sort of like world events in Wow, but these are going on all the time. Massive waves of monsters trying to take down outposts and camps, named monsters that have to be defeated... so much fun. The best part is you don't have to get a group and get organized , you go there and join in a public group and you're automatically in. No being judged. No gearscore elitism... its nice. refreshing even. You put in effort, you get rewarded. There are Warfronts (battlegrounds like WoW) you can do for gear, there are Dungeons you can do in groups, there is questing, you can do artifact collecting for goodies and novelty items (mounts, pets, gear), there are Rifts ( much love), I'm sure theres more I don't even know of yet. Oh... and exploring in this game is rewarded. I love it. Tread the unbeaten path whenever possible, and you might discover some treasure.Long story short: Me Gusta.
