OP  12/05/12 6:23:35 AM#1

Today marks the final installment of our Rift: Storm Legion review in progress. Next week, we'll give our final and official review to our readers but, in the meantime, this week, we check out the new souls added when the expansion went live. Read on and then let us know what you think in the comments.

I did not experience any rough spots over the past week that I have not previously addressed.  With the holiday now behind us it appears Trion is back in business. Since our last Review in Progress they have released another hot fix stomping out more bugs, solving the great rested experience heist, and fixing broken quest lines. 

Read more of Rob Lashley's Rift: Storm Legion Review in Progress Part 4.

I'm leveling a tactician as a new player to Rift. All I can say is.. I wish I gave Rift a chance earlier on. The game is amazing.

I know several rogues running tactician as their primary. Defiler is also fine for solo play and shouldn't just be considered a healing soul.  I was extremely unimpressed with Harbinger and Tempest so I've ditched both of them and levelled the mage with the old souls and parked the warrior at 50 to hang out to see if a future change makes the class more interesting to me.

The really sad part is you missed out on a lot of cool stuff. HK for example was probably one of the best raid zones thats ever been put into a game.  Some of the original dungeons were freaking awesome.

Anywhoo, if you ever get a chance you should check them out

I have to agree that this expansion is fantastic.  Real life is keeping me from playing as much as I want, but there is so much to do with PVP, farming, leveling, running dungeons, raiding, crafting, and trying to get your dimension just right that I doubt I will run out of stuff anytime soon.

Big props to Trion for the dimensions.

"These dimensions allow you to stake your claim on this area and personalize it however you like. You obtain your first dimension key through a quest; further dimensions can be purchased from vendors.  They vary in price from hundreds of platinum to thousands of platinum. You can set permissions on your dimension which would allow only you to visit, or you can open it to the public.  You can also decide whether or not you want visitors to be able to edit your dimension or if they are only allowed to view the work that you have done. There are also dimensions that can be shared across your guild. You can furnish your dimension with dimensional items. These items can be found as quest rewards, from vendors, and from merchants all across Telara. You can even find NPCs to populate your dimension. If you have a public dimension visitors can +1 your creation, almost like a Google+ post.  There are leader-boards for dimensions with the most popular ones at the top. "

 

Replace dimensions with housing and this is a word for word description of EQ2 housing.  This is definitely one case where its okay to copy/paste another game's system into your own game.

 

Now if someone would only copy/paste SWG crafting into their game...

they just released an offer for the holidays

6 month sub for 60$, thats a fantastic deal, I usually play RIFT in 6 month segments, so saving 30$ is cool.  Also nice to see companies giving sub deals, and rewarding and tempting long term subs

I have played many different MMO's over the years and have so far been more impressed with Storm Legion than any other expansion before. SL is a real nice job, and rather than sitting back  and resting, they have added 4 hotfixes, and are talking about Rift 2.1.

Trion seems to be on a win streak with SL!

That's general business when talking RIFT. Even just after it launched we got 1.1. Lots of people assumed that was because the content was already done, but did we get proven wrong :D

So, what do Trion have to do to get big numbers playing the game? Any suggestions...

It seems to be one of those games that no matter what Trion do, it will always be viewed as a minority mmo.

How do they clmb the player numbers into the millions?

I think they should streamlined the tutorial zone more, make it more dynamic like the rest of the game. Its to linear, but then again all tutorials are, but it dont show the real gameplay there. Even 1-50 is half as good as SL is right now. Its probably the best expansion ever, and i thought i saw it all already.

Rift could have been something greater if they only took that extra effort in optimizing the game engine and fix combat gameplay feel (animations, sounds, spell effects, impact)

I agree about optimization, game is cpu capped (very heavily) and if its got any flaw its this big time.

Animations sounds etc its a matter of taste. I like most of the animations and effects apart from few but then again i play dwarf and we have best character animations ^^

The art and animations/sound etc is a lot better in SL tho than in vanila version

Of all the past MMOs, SWG is the one that people still can't help but wear their rose-colored glasses while discussing it. The entire game was a mess. Great ideas and terribad execution.

Loving RIFT these days. This one just keeps getting better.

Yeah, it is quite obvious you havent played EQ2 recently if you are actually saying the two housing systems arent the same.  Are they identical?  well of course not.  Are they EXTREMELY close?  Yes.  

And only a complete fool would write off a game's system because the game as a whole was a mess.  If you did a poll of best MMORPG crafting system I would bet SWG would be an easy #1 with over 50% of the vote.

More races, bigger, better 1-50 experience, better lore presentation, open world dungeons, make it less 'game'y and more 'world'y.
