Another 50 Later and Finally a Raid

June 15, 2011 - 7:23 pm No Comments


Hitting 50 a second time, even though it was another rogue, was actually just as exciting as it was the first time – this time it was even a bit more fun because I hit the mark while my friend 3,000 miles away was in the group with me. The refreshing thing about being level 50 this time is that I’m not trying to run my own guild; this time I found a great group of folks in the guild Fatality. And with Fatality, I finally got a taste of raiding in RIFT.

That’s not to say there wasn’t a fair share of difficulty on the way. All the way from the mid-30s to the late 40s I was constantly struggling with questing. I always seemed to have quests three levels higher than me which made killing even single mobs a task. At level 49, I had to grind about 80% of the level just killing mobs. It was 318 mobs… not that I was counting or anything. Read through the cut for my first impressions on what it means to raid in RIFT.

Being Defiant

There comes a time in every Guardian’s life when he begins to question the motives of The Vigil and wonders if being the long arm of divine justice is really justice at all. It is in that moment that the weak souls will brush aside their concerns and blindly continue to follow orders. But the strongest souls (you know, rangers, marksman… souls like that) investigate their suspicions by donning the veil of technology and going behind enemy lines to determine how “unholy” the defiant truly are. Yes, I’m a switcher… again.

Well, I’m a hobbyist switcher anyway. For the most part, I rolled up an Eth rogue to put in a little playtime with my real life friend, Newcast. Hobby turned into project and I’ve put in quite a bit of time playing my Eth. Level 30 already in just a few short days – I know, that’s not as fast as Laughter but that’s pretty quick for a man like me! I’ve even joined up with a raiding guild (Fatality, Regulos-Defiant). So the investigation of the Defiant goes on as I explore Telara as an Eth and hopefully get in some dungeon and raid time with my new friends. Jump the cut for my first impressions of the Defiant leveling experience.
