Dear wow fans Don't waste a trip to Telara to play rift. I couldn't do anything but be annoyed when I played it. Mini patches every stinking day, random maintenance that would without fail kick me off 15 minutes after I logged on and the frankly underwhelming linear leveling process just left me thinking that it was a wow clone with some potential but i felt it was really rushed to the market and they should have had many more zones/quests to make replayability better.

I disagree regarding Rift; while the leveling process is pretty linear the end game is much more refreshing casual friendly then Cata's end game turned out being. Rift also has a unique public class system that pulls the community together during Rift Invasions. Yes there are patches every day but you are only talking about 30 minutes at a time once a day in the mornings. thats 3.3 hours per week which is half the down time that WoW has. There is a hell of a lot more variety for builds then WoW does. Some times I miss Wrath of the Lich King; but when Cata came out I needed to find the closest game I could to give me that smooth gaming experience I felt when raiding in Wrath; I have found that in Rift. Some day if Blizzard decides to bring WoW back down to the difficulty level of the Ulduar days I may consider coming back.
