Battlecrab

      With the Storm Legion expansion comes a new class;  Battlecrab!  This new rogue soul is exceptional at battling evil forces of the deep.  This king of the crustaceans makes up for its slow movement speed with its devastating claw attacks that leaves complete chaos in its wake.  While not as effective outside of its natural elements, I’m looking at …

Just Deserts

I’m not sure what it is about desert maps in MMO’s but i absolutely adore them.  Maybe it’s my absolute love of the film Lawrence of Arabia, but i always enjoy a good sand desert over a lush jungle.  In fact, i absolutely hate jungle maps with a passion.  They tend to be so over-saturated and packed with trees and …

Ding 60

      Ding Two years and 4 months after my initial level 50 ding in Rift, I’ve reached 60.  I just love that word “ding”, it just has a ring to it.  Wow, that was terrible yet I’m going with it.  I can’t believe it’s been so long honestly because it sure doesn’t feel like Rift has been out that long.  …

Rift Mount Check

As i continue my week in Rift and my inevitable climb to 60 after over a year away, i decided to take some time between quests for some fun stuff.  I love collective anything i can, as I’m sure many others do as well.  This time i diverted my attention to my mount collection, which in this case is rather …

Raptr Nerd Points

Being a nerd and using their game tracking software finally payed off.  Well, technically I’ve received tons of rewards from them in the past, but never anything of value.  This time around i was rewarded with the Storm Legion expansion for free, which included four new souls, and an adorable Raptr mini-pet. Wish i could rename him Snoopy Having not …

Rift Going Free to Play June 12th

     Source I can’t say I’m surprised that it’s happening but i am shocked it took this long.  I was sure Rift would be heading down this path prior to GW2’s launch, which never happened.  This announcement strikes me as a bit odd at the timing though.  Perhaps they’ve reached do or die status or perhaps it’s just time. I …

Return to Telara

I thought I’d take advantage of 5 free days and return to Rift to see what the game actually looks like on a good PC.  At the time i actually played and raided pretty hardcore, i was on a system that maxed out at 20fps if i was completely alone in some corner of the world, and under 10fps in …

Hammerknell Vids

Since i haven’t played Rift in 3 months now, i thought I’d gather all of our Hammerknell vids in one spot. Missing Rune King and Inwar somehow so I’ll have to yell at someone to get me those. There’s of course no Akylios vid since we stopped playing before we could kill, which is unfortunate since i hear it’s nerfed …

Rank 8

Well, it didn’t take that long but finally rank 8. Probably the most fun i’ve had in Rift despite the class imbalance. This ones all on Noraan, Naughtius and Zygore for distracting people so i could stab them. Played mostly as 51 Nightblade with my warrior mentality of just running in and destroying people. As if any other rogue soul …

Waves of Madness

Prior to 1.4, i decided i’d work on getting as many coins as i could stomach to purchase a bunch of the new epic water resist source machines. As usual, this led to me finding a bunch of stupid things to do to occupy my time. One of those was finishing up all the achievements in every zone for finishing …
