    I'm sure they didn't log into the game because the emails i got from trion say that i made queries from the online support centre.

    Hi all,

    With the opening of the final phases of the River of Souls World Event in Europe we have identified several issues that only came to light in a live server environment. Due to this we have had to temporarily disable the World Event in Europe and are delaying the opening of the event on North American shards until a full investigation and corrections can be made.

    We do not have a specific ETA at this time and apologize for the delay. We strive to provide a high-quality experience and will not start the event until it meets those standards. In the meantime, all players in Europe and North America can continue to participate in Phase 1 of the world event and earn Otherworldy Sourcestones. Thank you for your patience and understanding, we will keep you updated when additional information is available.
    from here

    Tried out the trial yesterday and got to level 15 today which is apparently the level cap for trialists. I have to say I'm disappointed, every quest in freemarch was some form of kill x, collect x or deliver x. I was gonna give the game a chance until I got to see a dungeon but the lowest dungeon is apparently level 18 so I'm boned on that part.

    I think they really dropped the ball on the starter zone, if it had been more interesting and had better quests I probably would have kept playing it for at least a month or two.

    Pet peeves:

    Every NPC ever tells you how great you are, the guy who taught me butchering said "maybe next time we meet, you will be the master" and I'm sat there thinking "dude, I'm level 8, get off it".

    Too many rifts, I know its central to the game but the only vibe I get from rifts are that its the undead invasion in wow running 24/7 and a lot of them are a chore. What are they gonna do when we beat regulus, story wise? Just find some badder dude to keep running them?

    I really liked the soul system though, 3 talent tree's feels like a lot at first but it works really, really well.

    The rifts are determined by how many players are in the zone, and since Meridian and Sanctum are technically within their respective starting zones...

    It seems you expected something hugely, wildly different when Rift is taking the model most people are used to and refining it. Evolutionary, rather than revolutionary.

    Yeah I guess, right now the game just feels exactly like WoW with prettier graphics. I'm not sold on it, which is a shame because I've been playing WoW for 6 damn years now and was hoping something would come along that would catch me.

    Edit: Although, most people playing it from my server is on Argent. And the PA EU guild is on there..

    Which sounds pretty boss. I found the overall story for Freemarch to be good, it comes in more near the end where you deal with Jakub. Also there's some funny shit in the zone.

    Stonefield is a very neat place as well, Scarlet Gorge I also found unique. Scarwood has it's own quirks.

    You're an ascended. That'd be like if some random rebel was like "Whoa, a jedi, you're awesome." Doesn't matter if you just started, you're still a goddamn Jedi and your potential is insane.

    As was mentioned, rifts open based on population of the zone. Also, rifts in Freemarch and Silverwood are opening a lot more often due to the event. As for beating Regulous, he's not the only one. There are five other dragons that are threatening the world. One for each element, plus Life and Death. Killing Regulous doesn't save everyone because the rest are powerful and really want to invade Telara, it just takes out the biggest player.

    Funny thing I've noticed too, apparently Maelforge -was- killed while the others had been imprisoned. I'm assuming this was his 'physical form' on Telara since you see him communicating with his forces in the first part of Silverwood.

    Iron Pine Peak would be fucked if Crucia got out.

    I got half of that quest done on accident. Last night I was questing in Stonefield and then an invasion opened up. I automatically got put into the public group so I figured why not. The invasion boss(the witch or something) shows up and our full raid kicks it's ass.

    I got an achievement out of it too. It was kind of nice.

    And then I ran DSM. Yesterday was quite a productive day.

    On Argent-RP, the closest we came to RP-ing was complaining about Items Of The Fortress, but Trion removed those and now our lives are hollow and meaningless.

    I demand that the devs buff RP by making fortress items mandatory for all players at all times.

    In case people haven't seen it, there's news on the delayed Phase Two:
    River of Souls World Event Extended

    Hail Ascended!

    We want to thank everyone for coming out today and taking part in the most massive event RIFT has ever seen. Our first run this morning on the European servers was a true test of the platform we have built and a learning experience for us all. With the hold on the final phases in the River of Souls event we have decided to extend Phase 1 an additional week.

    This extension will allow everyone more opportunities to earn the event rewards, but we’re not stopping there! Here are a couple of improvements you can look forward to in the next day:

    * Increasing the amount of Otherworldy Sourcestones you can earn from Death Rifts and Invasions
    * More new rewards for purchase from the World Event merchant!


    We’re working on rolling these changes out and will share the full details when they go live.

    In the end, more people will have the opportunity to enjoy the event and all the rewards that come with it. We’re thrilled by how many of you turned up today and your encouragement is why we are committed to providing first-class World Events– anything less is unacceptable.

    So enjoy the extra week and brand new rewards – We’ll see you next Saturday (04/16/11) at 12:00PM server time when we push Alsbeth back to her bastion once and for all!

    Have a great weekend,
    The RIFT Development Team

    Linky.

    A bit annoying, but hey, it's their first world event. At least they're learning from it for future events.

    Got my Shadetouched Weapon completed... and in one level I can start working on the next tier of shadetouched weapon. :P

    Whee. Did 2 death raid rifts with 10 members of TSM. First one was repeatedly attacked by guardians so we called in defiant backup and whooped the rifts ass. 2nd one we did it with basically just 10 of us and due to a leashing problem we got only one chest of loot. Oh well, super fun either way.

    I have seen two instances of RP on this server, and both were by the same group. The vast majority, at least in chat - do not RP.

    Those that do RP, do a pretty good job of it, as I thought the chat was nonsense NPC talk, until I realized who it was coming from. . .

    You are the luckiest man ever. I see RP all the goddamn time. But yes, it's only in local emotes, very rarely in any chat channels. And I've yet to catch anyone in <KoA> RPing. Fortunately, I've got /gkick power, if that (god forbid) should ever happen.

    AP and DD can be done with someone fresh to t2s, but CC, and DSM require a ridiculously set up group to complete them in anything resembling a reasonable time frame. 6 hours in DSM is just no goddamn fun.

    its actually nice to hear I dont have to bard through the whole thing based on the guides, just certain bosses and for dps checks they are saying only one healer should be used and the rest should be dps

    heres the guides if anyone wanted to learn stuff about t2's before going into them:

    As a cleric healer just hitting 50, mana isn't really a problem, and we aren't lacking in tools; I really can't see a Chloro or a bard healing a tank on that level, not with current gear I think.

  • CorriganXCorriganX Registered User regular
    edited April 2011
    Bards most definately cannot heal, but thats because they're support and not healers. Chloros actually perform quite well, and are usually prefered over clerics for single healers because of their ability to deal damage while healing. Their DPS can be crucial to an easy win vs scraping by in some dps checks.

    Yeah but not enough cooldowns, and this is where I think clerics shine as healers, in the senti tree I got 5 awesome oh crap buttons that are on a 2 minutes cooldown (one of them is from the warden tree). Purifier and Warden have them too, which is fair considering chloro's DPS.

    I tried out a mage, massive dps over my tank cleric. Feels like my cleric is completely useless now :P Still, he seems competent at tanking but its hard to tell because I still take a lot of damage from rift elites.

    Chloro's ohshit! buttons are their actual heals. The rest of their healing comes from doing damage. We've cleared CC Expert easily with a chloro with us. When the chloro had to go to bed we had a much harder time clearing it again due to losing the 10% cost reduction buff (When we're in a dps race I don't bard, I dps) and the extra dps we needed to race two of the harder bosses. Honestly, clerics are good healers. Really strong when backing up a chloro, but if I had to pick just 1 healer to bring with me it would be a chloro for their bigger ae heals from radiant spores and wither, and their better buffs they can bring along.

    edit - this is all strictly for pve.


    Edit the Deuce - I should mention we usually bring a cleric dpsing along with us. Our usual group makeup is a tank warrior, a dps warrior, nb or bard rogue depending on fight, single target, or ae target dps cleric, and a chloro. We've been able to clear all the experts with that group, pretty handily. DSM is still a huge whore though.
