Earlier I wrote that I will try out RIFT starting in late March, a few weeks after the game opens for everyone. Now I plan to squeeze in Fallen Earth first.
I read the dev diary about the upcoming changes to the LI system in LoTRO. I’m very excited about the Legacy Replacement Scrolls. I think I can use them to make my burglar Dhrun a weapon with the legacies I’d really like: Feint Attack Cooldown, Lucky Strike Cooldown, +% Crit Chain Damage.
OK, bad pun about RIFT’s division of archetypes. 😉
I played a few more hours of the RIFT beta, and had a fun time. I’m not sure I’m going to subscribe, but will keep an eye on the game for reconsider in a few months. The mechanics were superb but I couldn’t find a class combo I enjoyed playing.
I hit 30 points in my Hall of Monuments, thanks to a generous guildie.
I signed up for the RIFT beta, and played a bit during the week. I wasn’t able to play much but it was fun.
I really enjoy the epic storyline in LoTRO, and I decided to finish up Volume 1, The Shadows of Angmar, on Naerys.
I read the patch notes and am ecstatic for the changes in the epic storyline! I know they are subject to change, but the clear intent is to allow Volume 2 of the epic quests be completed solo.
Naerys is on 2.5.5 in the epic storyline, Drums in the Deep, a 3-part quest consisting of defending the 21st Hall, Deep-way, and Way of Smiths. Unfortunately I didn’t find any groups forming for this, so I kept on questing. I’ll come back since I enjoy the storyline. But it was also nice to step out the other side of Moria into Nimrodel.
