    They'll also be unveiling the new Rogue Soul, the Tactician. According to the little blurb in the email, it uses all sorts of fun Empyrean tech and gadgets.

    SOLD. TAKE MY MONEY TRI...

    ...wait, you already have. <_<

    Also interested to see what the hell the Cleric soul does this weekend, although I'm unclear if there's a NDA running for it or not.

    I'm just hoping it'll have pre-mades to use since none of my dudes are at 50 and I assume there's jack and shit for the sub-50 players beyond the new souls.

  • hoodie13hoodie13 punch bro Registered User regular
    I don't think there are pre-made characters to use, as there aren't any for the regular PTS stuff, but you should be able to participate in a bunch of new stuff with sub-50s, like Dimensions and the new souls. If you're kinda close to 50, try doing a bunch of IAs before tomorrow and you should be able to hit it pretty quickly.

    Nah, not even close. I'm trying to hit 50 by the time the expansion actually launches but at the moment my highest characters are in the 20s.

  • hoodie13hoodie13 punch bro Registered User regular
    15 or so hours of IAs with experience potions should get you to 50 with a character.

    IA tips:

    -You only get XP for kills and such when you're near the mob when it dies. For things such as activated or collected items, you'll get XP no matter where you are.
    -You get more XP the lower level you are compared to the IA. Try mentoring yourself down to 10 or 11 and joining the IA group afterwards.
    -Rested XP is your best friend, but don't just quit when you run out of RXP. Keep going, and log out in a city when you're done for the day.
    -Always grab the IA daily from Meridian/Sanctum.

    If anyone else is going to be playing on the beta server, you should totally join the old /pennyarcade channel so we can actually talk about stuff.

    Because I really want to talk about things.

    The Tactician has flamethrowers. :D (Mentioned in the stream, so I'm guessing it's safe to talk about.)

    I didn't really get much time at all with the beta this weekend.

    I really wish they'd have provided level 50 templates so I could've seen the new areas :(

    So....I haven't played Rift since release. But housing is my one true weakness. Has there been any good info on how complex the housing will be? I've seen the trailer and I've been browsing around looking for some info. Is it going to be more like LOTRO, with its grid based decorating (and prohibitively expensive costs) or , hopefully, like the superior and amazing EQ2 housing? I'd totally start playing if it's closer to the latter.

    EDIT - Hot...as soon as I posted this, I found a video showing what looks like freeform placement and scaling. Mmmmmmmmm.

    also does anyone know if storm legion comes with a free month?

  • hoodie13hoodie13 punch bro Registered User regular
    As far as I know, if you buy the expansion as a standalone you get a free month. Not 100% on that though.

    Come back, Fargg! ID needs one or two more rogues who aren't awful and can actually bard. And barding just got REALLY easy.

    Sane? Man I got shit to do on the weekends.

    Show up for HK at the very least. HK has literally not happened in a month because of people being dumb and not showing up.

    The video Screech posted has some in it.
    Here is the one I saw:

    The pre-Storm Legion patch "Tempest Rising" (aka 1.11) is live. Patch Notes from RiftJunkies.

    Sixty pages of class notes. I love it.

    Although, hope no one liked DPSing as a rogue, cause you suck now. At least until Tactician comes out, or they rebalance rogues.

    What would be the ideal leveling setup for a rogue then?

  • hoodie13hoodie13 punch bro Registered User regular
    Levelling? Probably some form of bard. There's now basically no reason to not be rolling a bard, with all the motifs and buffs you get. Unless you're of a low enough level that you dont have access to them yet.

  • PMAversPMAvers Registered User regular
    It's been so long since I actually leveled my rogue I've got no idea. Bard might not be bad, especially with Bard's Gift for the extra damage boost. Riftstalker used to be okay to level with due to the whole "kill something that still has combo points on it, get a bunch of health back" mechanic, dunno if that's still available. Pretty sure I leveled Marksman.

    I tried bard some time ago and kinda liked it, so maybe I'll stick with that. I want to focus on getting my mage to 50 though, and it looks like the mage changes are fun.

  • MaddocMaddoc I'm Bobbin Threadbare, are you my mother? Registered User regular
    I basically only ever Barded with my Rogue anyway, so I'm okay with that.

    Anyway I just decided to do the "subscribe for a year and get the expansion free" thing since I've been keeping my 6 mo rolling sub going anyway.

    Reinstalled this last night, feel like I might actually give it another go and maybe even make that final push to 50 before the expansion hits.

    Have they mentioned anything about the requirements for housing? If it's prohibitively expensive (like LOTRO) or locked by level, I'll probably pass it up since my highest Rift char is 13.
    But if it's more like EQ2 (imo the standard all MMOs should look to for housing), then I'm on board.

  • hoodie13hoodie13 punch bro Registered User regular
    It's locked by level, but only so much that you've gotta be, like, level 10 to get it. There are quest-givers in Meridian/Sanctum that will give you all you need to start out, and you can buy/collect from drops other items or dimensions.

    Excellent, excellent. That is great news. I do so love some housing.
    Crap, I wish I had started on Deepwood server now =\
    I mean, I'm only 13 but I hate to throw even that little bit of time away.

  • hoodie13hoodie13 punch bro Registered User regular
    ?

    Just transfer! You've gotta be level 15, but literally 30 minutes of Instant Adventures will get you to level 15. Then just transfer!

    If Deepwood is locked due to population issues, just contact Trion support and see if they'll transfer you over so you can be with friends.

    I didn't realize it was so easy. I figured it was an expensive pay service like most mmos.

  • hoodie13hoodie13 punch bro Registered User regular
    Nope! Trion recognizes that other MMOs do things dumbwise, and so Trion tries to do things smartwise. Transfers are free, just limited to once-per-character, per week.

    I got into the beta with one of the codes they've been giving away. Apparently you can't copy characters over to the beta servers; good luck testing Trion.

    Not correct! I've copied my characters over.

    Edit: Just tested it, here's how!

    From the normal "live server" client, do the following:
    -Go to Transfer on the character select screen
    -Select "Copy to PTS" on the bottom of that window
    -Select "Storm Legion"

    boom! Open up the beta client patcher and you're good to go!
