    Huh, now there's a mistake I can see em wanting fix right quick, yeah.

    Gosh, the time limit sure did make for a fun run. When presented with a pack including roamers, all I could say was "Pray!" before I pulled them all.

    Found my favorite spec so far, inquisitor/warden/druid. Sure I'm dragging a useless pet around but its got a small hot and I keep my tank buddy wonderfully happy while dishing out good aoe damage <3

    So has anyone bothered using the authenticator (on the iPhone)? Just wondering if it was working as intended.

    Has anyone else had any problems with slip away having mobs still chase you?

    If you play a warrior or cleric you will always get a spot in a group, as tank or healer respectively. If you play mage you might also always get a group as healer or range dps and if you play rogue be prepared to be devoted to the calling and quite patient with things :P

    so...healing... anyone have a good spec for a level 50 cleric (aka learning to heal)? The official forums are a cesspool of hate, and it hurts my brain to read them.

    I came up with this warden build, but i'm not sure how effective it would be.

    So I made a defiant on faeblight, and I'm a mage. One thing I've noticed so far, I am getting quite a few abilities that I'm just...not using. Is this normal? For example, I'm a pyromancer / elementalist / stormcaller, and the only level 1 nuke with a cast time that I use with regularity is fireball, for obvious reasons.

    All souls start out with some basic damage abilities. Just use the ones from your main soul and ignore the rest.

    Yes, they broke something recently. The mobs maintain aggro on me, and will chase me around, but will not hit me so long as the slip away buff is active (so it's very odd). Once I'm back to normal stealth they will re-engage.

    I've also found one spot in the droughtlands where my stealth will just randomly drop off, which has proved fatal more than once.


    Rift Forums thread on issue. Add comments (you don't have to follow the thread) to help get their damn attention! From some light browsing it's affecting other similar abilities (like the Feign Death).

    Otherworldly Sourcestone is used to buy rewards for the current World Event, and Planarite is used to buy Planar Goods, basically rewards for closing rifts and fighting invasions. Keep closing rifts and saving that stuff up, some good stuff to pick up there.

    So I was just playing Rift, and it disconnects me from the game. When I try to log back in, it gives me this error #2005, failed to connect to the authentication server.

    Are the Rift servers down, or is this a bug?

    God damn... people are fucking stupid. I can't tell you how many times I post: Lvl 18 Tank LFG for RoF/IT in LFG and Level 10-19... and I get people whispering me with their level and role. If I wanted to start the fucking group I would have used LFM, not LFG. It's a minor annoyance, yeah... but it still pisses me off when it happens all the time. People need to learn to fucking read.

    2.5 weeks into end-tier workorders, and only 1 epic crafting plaque between runecrafting and outfitting. Thanks for (almost) nothing, RNG!

    I think my experience with the game's been better off not reading much and just playing, but this is approaching korean-mmo levels of stupid.

    Welp, I'm done until they implement a proper cross-server LFD tool. I'm sick and fucking tired of spending an hour or two (sometimes more) every god damn day trying to put together groups on any of my characters. Trion totally fucked up launch day by opening all the god damned fucking servers at the same fucking time. And they should have had an LFD tool from day one.

    As a compulsive gatherer/artifact hunter I found something I thought I'd share:

    http://psiharis.com/rift/parser/

    Cool maps of all kinds of shit. Of course I'll need to alt-tab to refer to them in game (or print them on *eww* paper), but I thought it was pretty neat. Maybe I need to find a laptop.

    Because he didn't want to roll Defiant, so he made his own Guardian guild elsewhere.

    I seem to recall, Captain, that your guild had hundreds of players. Why are you having such a hard time finding a group? The Mouths have maybe a dozen or so players on at all times and I've never had issues.

    Some artifacts are part of 2 sets, but the majority are one use. But you can mail em to alts or sell em on the AH if you can't use or don't want them.

    We pretty much have constant artifact trade in KoA. It's at the point where someone will just link 5 artifacts in guild chat, and people will call out what they need.

    You know what would help? A guild bank.

    I'm still completely flabbergasted that this wasn't in at launch.

    They're not always online at the same time nor at the right level for the dungeon I want to run. The resident uber guild has also poached pretty much every dedicated level fifty from my guild. It's kinda funny that over half the uber guild started in mine, but oh well. I was never really that interested in leading the guild into raids.
