Yeah, I did a trial period of Rift. I decided I'd try out a warrior (Void Knight/Paladin/Warlord). Now, that was ok. Problem with Rift is that there's so many choices and you have so many talent points that it becomes clunky. I imagine that the devs of Rift are already encountering balance issues, especially in pvp. In pve, I'd imagine it's just becoming apparent that certain classes make better healers or tanks than others. Furthermore, as nice a support role sounds, it actually sucks in the long run. The only way to do a support role and make it not suck is to play a D&D based game, like the Neverwinter Nights series or Baldur's Gate series. And even then, it sucks. Keeping everyone buffed ultimately means you're not actually bashing on the boss, holding aggro, or healing. You're basically just the cheerleader who clicks buttons. No one's ever going to go, "Yeah, without that bard, we'd have lost the fight." No, they'll go, "We had a bard helping us, which was nice, but I've done that without a bard. We don't really need it." Support roles suck.
