I’ve really been enjoying Rift, playing since Headstart began on the 24th of February, and here it’s 13 March.
I’ve leveled one character to level 20. Three to level 16 or so. The Level 20 has finally left the first zone after the starter area. (And, it turns out, the epic storyline quest remains incomplete for him. Unstarted even. But I did get credit for “completing” the area, with a title “the Warden” and the achievement.)
We were in the Guardian area last night with our High Elves and I keep remarking to the wife how beautiful the graphics are. The lush forest and the play of light and shadows and verdant greenery is unmatched by anything I’ve seen.
The level 20 Warrior started as a Champion (think Arms) but has since gone Riftblade/Reaver (think Elemental Damage Dots Death Knight+Death Damage Dots Death Knight) and the dots on groups of mobs really burns them down.
However, that’s not to say he’s not a ghost right now after dropping onto an elite level 20 monster (without realizing it was elite).
But, like the achievement says, I was just there for the view.
