RIFT: A New Beginning

Greetings Everyone,

It's been ages since I last spoke of RIFT and over the past month I've been poking my head in to see some of my ol' favorites still playing. I've even held a few livestreams over there in the recent past. While I know there are not many still around, I know that many of our current family once called RIFT home. The loss of Jexia and Morigana really made me miss the days of RIFT. Still today no game has come close to the way RIFT centered around bringing people together. It is because of this that I am planning to relaunch some events in RIFT to see if there's interest in getting this off the ground again. Most of the code is still in the background of the site (I haven't had a free moment to clean it all out) and I figure If by christmas I can get 100+ people playing again we can bring it back as a Legacy Chapter just like ESO. That would mean that there would be Leadership & Fellowship for events, a Base Marketplace, Character claiming and roster management tools. 

I know this is a long shot but I was wondering, Would you like to play RIFT once again with me?

My new guardian is gearing up and flying the ol GSCH colors once again. Do a search for GSCH in the guild finder for an invite. I'll be looking to stream this every other Thursday at 6PM PT in October and every other Wednesday Night at 11PM PT. This will get us started and see what type of interest we can generate.  The expansion is looking pretty sweet, I saw it at PAX and I'm looking forward to the new fortress sieges. Who knows maybe this will become something bigger than expected and we find our next step is an ol friend and familiar face.

I've hopped on Rift over the years, but only lasted a few minutes because I felt like I needed to relearn the entire game. Things have changed quite a bit since I was actively playing it in 2012. 

 

This seems like a good chance to give Rift another go.  I have some great memories from back then.

Never played it.  The family went to Rift about the time I left my now ex-husband, and I came back to gaming when Guild Wars 2 started.

I'd love to see what all the hype was about.  I'm going to be a NOOB!!!  

I'll download it this evening.  I think I see a "Faeblight" server mentioned on Discord....or somesuchness.

Yes we are on Faeblight, and I think most of us are coming back to RIFT Reborn. We are all noobs again. Honestly I think thats the best way. I do have high level characters that can craft bags and such for those playing. We've got a lot of the essentials we need at the ready. It's all a matter of relearning the game and finding our footing again.

I just sent about 4,500 characters a reinvite to GSCH. If you played with us during chapter 3 you will find an invite waiting for you if you want to pick it up again. Enjoy :)

If there's any kind of "Recruit a person" bonus in game, someone can send me an invite and let me know here before I start an account tonight.  My email is nicholecq@gmail.com.

 

Just thought I would mention it because several games offer in game stuffs if you bring someone new to the game :)

Since I continue to dabble in Rift every now and then I am much more comfortable with bringing my main level 63 cleric. I have a high level mage, rogue, and warrior that I can bring if I feel like it later. Thanks for the invite the other day. I haven't played Rift seriously in a long time, but probably only half as long since the Rift chapter went down. I joined Rift after it went f2p and was regularly active during pieces of 2013 & 2014. I have only been with Gaiscioch since about early 2015. It will be nice to get back into one of my old favorites with all of you!! ;D

 

Also it is likely that many returning characters will get a gift from the game to teach a land mount how to swim!!! ;P Hurray now my Hellbugs, & Tartagon Turtle can swim!!! ;P

Dont need to buy anything yet. Eventually it would be good to grab storm legion and the new starfall Prophecies but thats not required for my events yet.

After examining all of the classes/souls, most of the ones I want are in the Storm Legion pack.

In the store, there is a bundle that is like $50 or $60 and is designed to get older players the stuff they would not have (storm souls, primalist calling, etc...). I am thinking about picking it up. I have not spent in money on the game since the collector's edition at launch so I have no concerns about dishing out some money right now to support Trion.

 

EDIT: In-game store, not Glyph store.

Looks like there is a level 65 boost when you purchase the Xpac.  That's cool, now I don't have to break my neck trying to catch up with everyone.

Thank you Ckemi I got 2 bags last night!!!  Ended up making Twilahe, a ranger(ish)...huntsman?  I have a pet.  The soul thingys make the possibilities endless it seems :)  This game is like WoW mashed with Warhammer.  I'm loving it.

Currently having a lot of fun in Rift. although I have decided that I will be playing with another guild. ( I joined the largest guild on the server since they are active 24/7 which I love and they cover all the timezones which is good for me because of my college schedule ).

Anyway love the fact that you can hop shards to complete rifts now.. Gives me a idea for a event

But yeah as of right now.. I think Rift is the game I have been looking for. It so far has everything that I personally look for in a game.

Yeah and I hope people will give the game another chance. Out of all the MMOs I have played.. Rift is the one that i seem to have the most fun in. From the Dynamic Rifts that if you do not close in time will spread destruction across the zone to the Npcs remembering what I have done for them ( The tavern guy is a example ). Its just really fun for me. Still making my way out of the first zone.. but it seems whenever I want too... I get distracted by a rift or a invasion :P

It is a great game. I was trying to remember why I stopped playing initially and for the life of me, I do not know. Maybe it was competition, other games, real life, or some combination.....but I am excited to try it again and try it with a new gaming family too.

For many it was the prepatch to storm legion that rebuilt every character class in the game forcing everyone to respe, rebuild their macros, and relearn how to play. Raiders were noobs over night and that didnt sit well. Then a month later when storm legion launched they did it again. We lost 80% of our active members in 2 months due to those 2 patches. Keep in mind we were 2700 active characters at that point. We went from having 100+ on every day to having 16 on within 2 months.

So what are everyone's thoughts on subbing versus free-to-play? I have read the description and it seems, to me, subbing makes a decent difference in your progression, especially leveling.

When I stopped playing, I was  level 50 and progress has been slow. Actually I thought that I had my xp turned off or was capped at 50 for some reason at first. After about 3 or 4 hours of playing, I gained about 1/4th a level.  I did 10 or so instant adventures and quested a bit. Closed rifts and fought invasions when I saw them, but coming from WoW it feels like 40 - 50 in DAoC. I might add that am a patron and  I see the extra xp im getting, but if feels like raindrops in an ocean. 

As for all the other perks of being a patron, the daily and weekly patron present are helpful. I got gear that was better then what I had on. Being able to port from where ever once every half hour is good. I can honestly say I haven't used it yet. I also haven't used the portable class trainers or bank yet either.  Oh, the super fast mount and "training" a mount to swim was helpful, too. 

I original reason I bought the patron sub was for the discount in the shop (and I just canceled my WoW sub. Sorry Twilah).  If you plan to buy a lot with gems, the 10% discount is a nice bonus.

 

Overall, nothing that the sub gets you is necessary and it doesn't feel like "pay to win".

Ive actually found leveling from 50 to 60 is a lot easier since i returned way better that when storm legion first hit. Its still a journey not a race but instant and intrepid adventures definately help. Plus the exp boosters i saved up help as well. My lowbie toon went from 1 to 12 in 1.5 hours so thats not a  bad low level pace at all.

Im not a patron. Nor will i be :) no offense to Scott and the team but i can allocate those funds at this time. Got other more important things to finance.

Starting to see more people online :) logged on yesterday to see 5 of us on. I want to encourage everyone no matter how many alts you have or multiple accounts please add them to the guild. Each roster slot brings us up in the guild finder. Im hoping within the next month we can grow to 10 regulars on at primetime. Gonna need to get ourselves higher on the guild finder to make that happen. Also be sure to welcome each other. We need to make this a small but mighty commmunity that looks our for each other.

I've been playing Rift for almost 6 years now and it's the only game that has consistently kept my interest.  I love the raiding in it as it's well tuned and some of you may not know that a lot of the 10 and 20 man raids now have easy mode, normal mode and/ or hard modes and you can switch between them mid raid at will.

 

I've kept up my Patron for nearly the entirety of it for the extra experience mostly and the daily / weekly gifts.  The porting is ok, but there's many other options such as Planar Attunement skills and things like the Tempest Insignia to get you around as well.  As with most games, keys for patron and expansions are being sold fairly cheaply due to be people exchanging their steam money for games, and then on selling the games/keys to others for real cash.  Trion has said this is ok, as long as the keys aren't illegally obtained.  There were a few dodgy sites that did this for the Starfall expansion and Trion either came down or threatened to come down on them and cancel the product that people had bought.  I'm not sure what the final outcome was but there was a warning.  I'm not sure if I'm allowed to mention the site I use on here, but it's a common one a few may already know about.  Prices are at a discount of about 60%, so message me if you want to know, or Fog let me know if it's ok to post.

If you want to get from 1 - 65 really quickly and don't have a 65 boost, this powerlevelling guide is up to date.  You can do it all in about 8-10 hours.  But I'd only recommend this for alts as the story and zones are pretty interesting.

If anyone has any questions, I feel I'm pretty knowledgeable about the game so should be able to answer anything :)

Oh man.  I was fortunate to get in on the initial closed beta for Rift, and then when it went live I played it to level 50 with real life friends.  Loved it so much, but my friends left and I didn't know about Gaiscioch back then, couldn't really find any guilds I was happy with, so ended up leaving myself.  Once I found Gaiscioch years later and saw that there had been a Rift chapter, I was so sad it was no longer running!  Seeing the announcement that it might be coming back has made my day.  I'm not a very active player, and am even less right now as I'm caring for my mother, plus I'm east coast so the activity times aren't great for me so I don't know how much I'll be able to participate in guild events, but I will be happy to fill out the ranks when I can!  Gaiscioch is what made Guild Wars 2 so awesome for me, and I'm looking forward to the same in Rift! 

I see that we're on Faeblight - like a lot of others I think I'm going to re-roll to re-learn the game, because I can't remember squat about it anymore.  I also can't remember if guilds are locked to one faction or if both can join...?  I'll roll a guardian as I see Fog made one as well, and take it from there I guess.  My internet speed is awful and I have something like 8gb to download, so I won't be rocking the full game for a while, but my "Play now" option is lit, so I guess I'll pop in and see what there is to see!

I joined Gaiscioch during the Rift days.  Those were some of the best times I have had gaming.  I am not really into GW2's WvW type stuff.  While I still have GW2 and play occasionally, I have been in FFXIV off and on for a while now.  I like it okay but want to get away from the sub for now.  So, I will slowly add the DLC for Rift and go from there.  I will see you all in Rift :)

Think storm legion is free now. When they went free to play a lot of the content went free.

Strong Legion Content is Free. The Souls you need to pay for. The next Expansion is a pay for one.

Which will make Rift Buy to play in the sense that if you want to do the content that comes out with the next expansion you need to pay for it. ( Just like HOT )

But yeah storm legion content is free. But if you want the souls that came with it you need to pay for them.

OMG OMG OMG.... I'm so overwhelmed. Restarting rift!  So.. putting on my big girl gamer pants, loaded up the game, buy all the DLCs (September Happy Birthday To Me), read some stuff here (forum) on where and who and how we are all going to be located, upon suggestion instead of calling up old characters started a new one.  Started first quest and started reading on all the options available to me like the store, the abilities.  

So back to the OMG OMG OMG.... There are so many new things that this game is not even the same as before and I've not even played past the newbie tutorial. 

Getting bigger big girl gamer pants, a lifetime supply of Starbucks and settle down to business! 

Hooray!

Woke up this morning to find not only my usual options of checking in to ESO and GW2, but Rift as well.

THIS IS AWESOME!!!

BTW, it's going to be much harder to manage two games I really enjoy playing, ESO and Rift. At least winter is approaching and I spend more time indoors. ;-)

I updated and logged into both GW2 and Rift tonight, lol. I have 4 lvl 65's in Rift, but unfortunately they are on Greybriar. I think I may roll a new character on Faeblight, since I honestly have no idea how to even play my characters any more, lol. Any particular class you guys could use more of? I don't mind which I play to be honest, I like pretty much all the classes. Are you guys Guardians or Defiants?

You can transfer a character quite easilly. we are mostly Guardian but there are a few defiants with us. it doesnt really matter just need to be careful what rally banners you take.

I got kicked out once last night myself - some time around 6pm pst. then I got back on, put myself on Faeblight and the remaining hour went okay. I was in a low pop area of the Storm Legion lands. No one seems to be there much when I play. ::chuckles:: Works well for putzing around at my own pace and I have my defiant mage, Teicneo, to 53 with all that putzing. LOL!

yeah they made a patch that puts you on the most populated shard when you log in. Just right click your portrait and choose to teleport to a different shard and it usually fixes lag for me as well. The only time I like to play in populated areas is usually if I am doing weeklies or with the guild :)
