Here is a GM showing off some of the endgame content.  For you holdouts, check it out and see what you're missing...

For the Unbelievers

We are now 10 days after launch.  If you have not tried Rift yet, please read this thread.

No, it doesn't prove anything, but I think it's a good indicator of just how good this game developer is.

I am pretty sure you are able to obtain access to all of the souls for your class, and 4 roles.  This is a brilliant move on Trion's part as far as I'm concerned--there is almost no reason for anybody to have more than 4 characters (one for each class).  Of course, that's how Blizzard made a fair portion of their money, making people start over to fix any mistakes or react to nerfs or other changes, so from a pragmatic business point of view it may not be so smart.  But for the player-base, it's fabulous.

Rift Menus Option

Thanks, Mike, that's perfect.

We switched our night to Tuesday, since that's better for you and Mel--however, we didn't discuss whether to play tonight.  I'll be on, if anybody cares to play.

RIFT Menu Option

There is now a Games -> RIFT menu option in the menu bar just under the banner at the top of the site which will take you directly to the RIFT home page.  Alternately, you can bookmark http://www.guildavatar.com/rift/home.  If you guys have settled on Monday night as a RIFT group night, I can create an Event for that like the one we use for DDO, but I'll need someone to volunteer to own and maintain it.

EDIT: There is now a RIFT Game Event post on the front page, owned by Rick.  Clicking on the RIFT logo will also bring you to the RIFT Home Page.

Rift Home

Mike, is there anyway to get a link to Rift Home directly on the home page, like DDO used to be?  It's a little cumbersome (at least the way my settings are now) to get to this page.  I played around with my account settings, but, as usual, couldn't figure anything out.

On another note, all the Headstart servers for Rift are currently down, presumably so new people can't create new characters there.  With everything they've done so well, Trion has really handled that aspect of launch poorly.  Going to be a lot of grumbling, I suspect...

Well, let's play tonight if

Well, let's play tonight if most of us can be there.  I'll be playing most nights for a while, at least, so when Mel is ready to start, just let me know.

Mel's In

Mel finally got his issues worked out and is installing the game.  Monday's are bad for him as well.  If Chris, Phil, and Jonathan (Vaerana) all stick, we may want to have two group nights, given the 5 man group limit.  Or we may be able to get away with RAID groups for non-instance outings.  That isn't clear to me.

MJ Group Night

Probably.  Go ahead and start at 9 (or whenever.)  I'll log in and join you guys when my family goes to bed, assuming this cough doesn't get any worse.

I"m sorry, Mike, I didn't

I"m sorry, Mike, I didn't realize we never told you our tentative plan to try and play tonight.  It's a good night for Chris and Jason.  F/Sa are bad for me, otherwise I'm flexible.  Do you think you can make it tonight, then we can see if T or Th is good for the others?

Posted by Rick on Mon, 02/28/2011 - 11:10am
Group Night

So, what nights are available for Group Night?  Friday-Sunday are out for me.  Mondy is iffy, but possible.  T-Th are good.

Posted by szaijan on Mon, 02/28/2011 - 10:52am

I'm sorry, but no Defiant for me.  Let's please stick with our Guardian characters.

Calyndra, 12th (Chloromancer-Dominator-Elementalist)

Valtar, 11th (Warlock, Dominator, Pyromancer)

Anaya, 9th (Warden, Sentinel, Purifier)

I'll add the links later.

MJ Guardian Characters

Eran, 11th (Paladin-Champion-Warlord)

Ariande, 11th (Bard-Rift Stalker-Assassin)

Nightfall, 1st (Warden-Justicar-Sentinel)

Zheryk, 1st (Warrior) - Defiant

I don't plan to make or level any more characters unless we decide to join a Defiant guild.  In which case, one more.  My group character looks to be Eran, who is a true Tank build.
