Jul 5th 2011 5:56PM Whoops. That was 18 hours.
Jul 5th 2011 5:56PM When Cataclysm was released, I played solidly until I hit level 85. I wasn't the server first. I wasn't even the first mage.

I've got no interest in SWTOR, just as I had no interest in SWG. Had no interest in EVE, and STO only got about six hours' playtime out of me.
Dress it up how you like, but medieval fantasy gaming has always been more popular than SF gaming. The genre alone is enough to dissuade many people from entry.

Yeah. I've bought into five new MMOs in the last six months, including DCUO, which I wanted to love, but didn't.
I've been playing Rift for two months now pretty solidly and haven't run out of things to do at level 50. I scratch my head trying to figure out how other people have run out of content, as I have 300+ hours in and haven't come close.

Yes, exodus. I got in and participated in phases 2 and 3. But while I love the game, I'd have dropped it like a hot rock if I couldn't have gotten in.
Apr 14th 2011 6:55PM So what if it's a retread? Nobody wants a brand new experience, or we'd all be playing A Tale in the Desert or something.
Reading between the lines of 'criticism', it's pretty clear that the complainers/trolls are just worried that Rift's popularity is going to steal thunder from GW2 or ToR. Both of which are, of course, utter retreads as well.
(For me, the difference is that I've got no interest in those games and am quite enjoying Rift. )
In any case, I really wish you naysayers would go find a different hobby. Coming in here and harshing the buzz of people who enjoy the game doesn't serve any useful purpose. Remember, this isn't a game criticism site -- even if what you were offering was criticism.
Oct 18th 2008 9:17PM Going OOM by spamming AM? Are you joking?
With the Glyph of Mage Armor and full raid buffs, I was running nearly 600 MP5 while casting and was gaining mana while I was casting AM.
My rotation was to spam AB until at about 20% mana, then rotate between AM and Barrage while watching my mana bar refill, then repeat. My DPS was just as good as it was pre-patch; I just had to fondle more keys. And I never, ever had to worry about going OOM.
Oct 8th 2008 6:13AM They print pretty much every report they get. If there's nothing from your realm, it's because nobody submitted a note.
Sep 27th 2008 5:39PM "Here's the problem: Mages don't really use spirit. When you're constantly casting, a mana-return mechanic that requires you to stop casting for more than five seconds is a bad idea."
Mages certainly do use spirit, and when you're running T5 Arcane with Mage Armor, having 500 MP5 while casting is better than sex.
