About time you came to your senses. I suffered alone in what was left of Gaisioch for sometime before I bounced about worlds on misadventures and dramas. I became a fairly capable raider (even after somehow learning to shoot lasers from my clumsy plate mail hands). After one to many dramas (and a few indignities suffered to the warrior class) and the final goodbye to some very good Rift friends I left and blew up some mutants in a post-apocalyptic nightmare. I bored quickly in that friendless world. 

I have been thinking about Rift plenty but not ready for the guild lottery (especially with the loss of my elite raider friends guiding my way). With Gaisioch back I will head back to Faeblight, my one true home, despite the pain that is server transfer.

I hope to see you in Rift soon

It's humbling for sure. I left about a year ago and I am staring at buttons very confused. Feeling very much the noob.

I loved Rift.  I was 6 months into my year subscription to it when it when free to play.  Trion ruined the game after that.  As much as I would love to join you all, after what Trion did to ArcheAge and Rift I don't trust them.

It's been so long I don't remember what ruined it for me.  I know it was their "free to play" but actually "pay to win" model.  I was a patron and it was meaningless.  You still needed to sink money into the game.  

I've played MMO's since the late 90's and if I like a game I have no problem subscribing.  I'm happy to do so!  But when everything in the game is a micro transaction, and to experience everything costs money, it makes me not want to play.  

I loved Rift, I really like ArcheAge!  But when Trion changed their business model, both games were ruined for me.  ArcheAge RNG was a complete mess!

I'm downloading Rift now.  I'm going to try it out again before I spend money on expansions, but from reading other players responses on Facebook feeds, it doesn't sound like Trion has changed.  If anything they've gotten greedier. 

Crossing my fingers!

I never really felt that Rift was pay to win. I played solid up until a year ago. Sure if you wanna pay like $300 you can get the second best set of gear, but seriously, if someone wants to pay $300 to get some gear for a silly game, I feel like they are just supporting the game monetarily. I think the two handed sword for the warrior had an estimated cost of over $100. I was a patron the whole time and enjoyed the perks of it. Cheap entertainment really. What the cost of a movie ticket. And you could play free and still get the gear with work. Most of the cash money sinks are fluff anyway. Again, if you wanna pay that kind of money, support my game and go ahead.

The main reason I left was the game would no longer update despite multiple sessions with tech support. That and the fact I was tired of guilds dissolving left and right. And the fact that playing my warrior was getting hard. I'm not looking for a 1 button spec, but I don't want my play to be a job. If I can keep it to 5-6 buttons I can still have fun. More than that and I can't enjoy the fight really. I was raiding at about the second highest tier at the time and it just wasn't fun. I hate respeccing. Right now I am having to learn a new spec and I hate it. I get home from work and just want to play

What I missed about Gaiscioch was the casual nature and ability to just play stuff. Get a group together etc... I'm ready to give this another try. I have watched every interesting show on Netflix and need a change.

Celta,

The way im looking at it is im planning to spend 20 bucks a month on rift. if thats buying gems or becoming a patreon thats up to me. the only thing ive bought so far is lures and a couple bank and bag slots. other than that i havent had to spend anything. they dont have anything you can buy that makes you better than anyone else other than expansions. and hey sub games have expansions you need to buy and still sub.

I logged in last night, tried to make a character and got a message that I needed to purchase an additional character spot.  Things like that are what I'm talking about.  So I just rerolled on the guilds server and transferred one character over.  I need to relearn the game as I left about 6 months after Storm Legion. I moved over my level 60 cleric as well.

The game felt really clean and fun.  I always had fun in Rift.  Hopefully I won't notice any further silly micro transactions.  I'm holding off on buying the expansion until I figure out how to play again.  I'm actually a bit excited to get going.

Anywho, I sent to guild invite requests for Cellta(hope I spelled that right, Celta was taken) and Baldorf.

I had about 10,000 patron currency since I left as a year long subscriber.  So I picked up a couple soul DLC's.

Hope to see you all in game!
