Rift: Now I'm Happy

When Rift first came out, my PC at the time couldn't handle it. Everything was an ugly mass of green.  By the time they went free to play, I had a much better PC and I thought to start to play it and really enjoy the game this time.

I was limited to the two characters per server, even though I had the original box and the code, you name it, everything but the same email address.  They would not acknowledge my game, and the email they wanted had been hacked and shut down by me.

Although I've played over time, I always want to be able to do all the crafts and try all of the classes.  All on one server.  It would get to me every time after playing for a bit.  It reached a point where I was willing to buy the character slots outright, but somehow that option didn't seem to be available.

Until recently, just before going on vacation a package was offered that would give my dreamy 6 slots.  I went for it without thinking twice.  Ahhhhh, at last.

Tonight I made a Warrior to go with my long time Mage and Cleric. 



She's picked up Mining, Armorsmithing and Weaponsmithing.  The other two have Foraging and Butchering which are recommended to go with AS and WS and they have a boatload of materials to hand over.  Happiness is being able to make use of all of your stuff!

She's level 9 and working on the fishing quests.  I love fishing in Rift.  There are a huge variety of fish species, which are useful in Survival (Cooking).  You can also fish up treasures for your house. 

I'm torn between letting her just kick back and enjoy crafting and fishing her way along through the world and sending her on a wild run of Instant Adventures.

Maybe, since I have three more slots!!!!   I will create a new character to just do the Instant Adventures and Dungeons.

By the way, I got a ton of other things with the package I bought.  A new dimension with inside and outside areas that is great.  It appears my other two existing characters got the whole package of things too.

Dimensional, crafting and adventure bliss coming in the days ahead.  :)

  1. Welcome back to Telara! It's a lovely game that I frequently return to even if just for the odd session. What was the pack called if you remember? I must have missed that.

    Rift's crafting is a big plus for the game, it has almost drawn me down into the spiral time-sync of "must do them all" a few times...

    I think I'll return properly to the game for the next expansion just because my Cleric main is too far behind current content now (still mired in Storm Legion at 58).

    1. The Essentials Edition got me all I ever wanted. It certainly wasn't cheap, but I am always drawn to Rift and it's deep, sometimes exotic world. Now I can play it as I like to play games. I find that if I can play all of the classes and crafts it gives me a much better picture of the design of the world, and how everything fits together. Like putting a puzzle together. I like the way the crafting quests are integrated into the landscape of the world. And if there were no other reason to do all the crafts, they have certain housing items only made by certain craft skill sets, and ideally over time this allows me to make the very coolest things.
