More Rift.

So Freemarch is basically like the Barrens (back before you could get a mount at 20) except if it had NO FLIGHTPOINTS WHATSOEVER. If you're a new player, you will probably not have much cash to buy a mount (especially if, like me, you keep getting in over your head fighting rifts/invasions), and IT IS ALL FAR AWAY. EVERYTHING IS FAR AWAY. Apparently they added a portal in at King's Retreat or something, but hell if I can find it. Dang.

This is mainly annoying because I find I have difficulty defending in invasions because I can't get to where I'm needed quickly enough. I can't get that mount quickly enough.

What this game is really driving home is how ridiculously easy WoW is, as well. I mean, thee mobs are much much harder than the WoW quest mobs are while leveling. (Sort of on the same level as Tol Barad quest mobs, except you also likely have very little HP.) Putting aside the "elite level 20 mobs patrolling the roads in a level 7-20 zone during a zone-wide invasion" factor. (Enjoy being ganked by NPCs!) It's kind of fun, but man, I forgot how crap I was at games there for a bit.

Anyway! Saboteur thoughts )

All right, I went ahead and bought Rift, and I've been playing around with it a little bit. I have no idea where anything is, and it's awful, and I've already died once because I suck. Anyway!

If you're thinking about playing: I'm playing Chance, an Eth Rogue (Saboteur/Nightblade/Riftstalker) on Kelpmere, and I'm like level 8, and basically I suck! It's pretty great! Saboteuring is pretty awesome, though. Basically, I trap things, set them up the bomb, then splode them! (I took Riftstalker basically for the kiting utility of the teleport, and am not really putting points into it, because it's a tank spec.) It's A+++. One day I will figure out where the fuck Meridian is so I can, like, put my mats on the AH/in the bank, and like, idk, train a crafting profession. Yeah! Also, one day I will buy my second role, and I'mma be a bard, yeah!

I also love how this game is like, on the one hand, the questing is linear as fuck. But on the other hand, you'll be like halfway through some quests and a rift will spawn and you'll be like AW SHIT YEAH and go kill the rift with some randoms. There were actually two zone-wide rifts since I've been playing, and I actually helped out a bit on one of them, and it was pretty fun!

edit For those of you who are into the Guardians: I also rolled a High Elf Justicar on Laethys, and I don't care if Justicar tanking sucks, I'm gonna try to Justicar tank because that class sounds really fun. (From what I hear, it's fairly viable in leveling/lowbie dungeons, just less so in endgame, largely because there is very little gear itemized for tanking clerics.)
