OP  12/06/12 6:41:40 PM#1

Trion Worlds has announced that December 12th will bring a trio of new features into Rift. The annual Fae Yule event will kick off, a new Chronicle will arrive and players will be able to take part in a 20-person raid to take on Regulos himself.

20-player raid: Endless Eclipse

Plunge into Shapers Citadel, a flesh-and-blood fortress of endless horror. Its ancient evils guard a portal to the Plane of Death, where you’ll come face to face with Regulos in a showdown with cosmic repercussions. 

Players can also claim three special Fae Yule gifts by completing three simple tasks: Ascend a Friend, sign up for the Rift Watch newsletter and "like" the official Facebook page.

Read more about the gifts here.

Find out more about the Endless Eclipse on the Rift page.

Hehe love the content release speed ^^

 

We didint even manage to kill Crucia yet and we already are getting another 20 man Raid, a myriad of small game improvements and class balancing, quests and rewards.

 

A lot of players didint even reach lv cap to start the endgame progression. :)

 

On top of that they updated seasonal event for SL expansion with new rewards, quests, zone events, and to top it off new Chronicle for more casual players. And all that in nearly a month after the SL expansion release ^^

 

Cant wait !

No content for lower players? That is the sad part. You ascend one Toon, on either side and you are done. I wish they weould put more content in for lowbies not just RAIDS. Another dungeon, 'OH you don't have X armor, sorry you can't RAID with us'.

Have to agree that i wish they would add more lower level content, both instances an additional open world content too. With the rate they open up new raids, and events in rift, they could open the lower world int being quite huge, add in their mentoring system, which allows the higgher levels to come down into earlier levels to do content it would be nice ffor all. Though i would much rather see alot of rift's focus placed back on open world content (like rifts, zone events, and such.), as raiding/instancing has depleteted the number of players in the open world.

That doesn't even happen in Rift. There's obviously some really hardcore guilds that do it but there's at least 20 times more guilds that don't.

Damn..now that is how you roll out content. 

Trion is the best MMO company, no doubt about it.

I like Rift - I had a sub for 1.5 years - I got sick of the gear grind in it. It would be nice to see some new lower level areas because it is a decent game. Never said it wasn't.

Uhh you obviously didint reach SL yet, we got 1 20 Raid atm and 1 10 man. The ammount of non raid or dungeon content is 10:1 if not more. You can even get gear thats ALMOST as good as Raids gear from Rifts.

 

Trion Added whole Hunt rift system that scales with the ammount of players participating. Its equivalent of open world progression system with up to 70 !!! NEW Hunt Rift Encounters + A lot of new normal rifts, several zone events with multiple stages in each zones, hundrets of IA quests that in some cases are as good as dungeon boss fights (mechanics wise, lore and execution) and more.

 

And thats just 1 thing that i mentioned. I dont get why people are so fixated on raiding, that they dont see there is several times more content cattered for non raiders right now.

 

And for people interested in leveling alt for no reason, they streamlined the early lv zones, aded some new zone events, npcs, rewards, speeded up reputation progress, added lv scaling for high lv players (like in Gw2), with the arival of SL you have access to dimensions from low lv already, new souls, Instant adventures in most of the low lv zones, not so far ago the fishing and survivalist proffesions, and so much more.

 

I mean seriously. The ammount of non raiding content Added is far greater than the other way around. But Raiding content is way easier to notice and promote tho.

 

The lower lv zones change so much since i first played the game in beta and during the early release. They where not only streamlined over time, but the content in them was easily doubled in zones like Silverwood for example.

Uhh you obviously didint reach SL yet Uh yeah, he did mention LOWER LEVEL CONTENT, not high level content, we got 1 20 Raid atm and 1 10 man. The ammount of non raid or dungeon content is 10:1 if not more. You can even get gear thats ALMOST as good as Raids gear from Rifts. 

People will always complain about too much focus on raiding.  Its almost never the case.  It is kind of funny that he mentioned adding dungeons, this is something Rift doesnt do often.  Maybe he is conufsing a chronicle with a dungeon, not the same thing.

And this raid isnt really new content, its part of Storm Legion expansion that was left out to give the Crucia raid the focus first.  Wow did the same thing but didnt call it a patch when they enabled their raid and holiday event.

 

 

And for people interested in leveling alt for no reason,

no one is interested inleveling an alt for no reason, some people *enjoy* it, if you ant grasp the concept its time to talk about topics you actually have a clue about

they streamlined the early lv zones,

they streamlined what was already streamlined?  You arent helping here...

aded some new zone events,

which take away from the feel of the particular zone since they are generic across all zones.  The old world event Rifts happen WAY too much (Im looking at you hammer flame) and are a major disappointment when they pop

npcs, rewards, speeded up reputation progress,added lv scaling for high lv players (like in Gw2),

except its not forced so at least before SL high levels would often ruin the experience by one shotting invasion mobs and killing the boss before lowbies could even see it in action, and it cant be forced now because the scaling is borked.  a player mentored down to 40 is less powerful than a level 40 player

with the arival of SL you have access to dimensions a (singular) dimension from low lv already, new souls, Instant adventures in most of the low lv zones, not so far ago the fishing and survivalist proffesions, and so much more.

so much more?  no I think you covered it all.  the low level IAs btw are mostly kill tasks and rehashed quests with the occasional escort thrown in.  Why do MMORPGs insist on escort quests?

 

I mean seriously. The ammount of non raiding content Added is far greater than the other way around. But Raiding content is way easier to notice and promote tho.

 Im with you on this point

 

The lower lv zones change so much since i first played the game in beta and during the early release. They where not only streamlined over time, but the content in them was easily doubled in zones like Silverwood for example.

My bullcrap meter is going crazy.  content easily doubled?  What are you smoking?  By 'streamlining' you basically mean they added a new porticulum or two and in some spots cleaned up the mob population.  The quests are mostly untouched.  Yeah, there are two new tradeskills to level, but a few fish nodes isnt a ton of content.  The IAs are mostly existing content.  The world event rifts and events are for all zones so if you want to count them for silverwood you cant count them for gloamwood.

No the content was not easily doubled.  they just added IAs for people that hate the leveling process

Seriously cba to anwser most of it. I already did that in the old posts that i argued with you and i dont like to repeate myself.

 

Looks like a lot of what i see as a content you cant, guess that is a matter of perspective. Ill take evolving world over lots of static new zones any day.

 

It comes down to the fact that you DONT LIKE or ENJOY the game. Guess what ? Its all good. There is a lot of people like it the way it is.

 

Why wont you just go play something you enjoy and chill instead of making this anty Rift Crusade ?

Oh yay, more raid content with the nicest goodies behind the raids.  No this isn't a raid or die game.  Thanks for the second rate progression for non-raiders Trion.  Maybe that's a factor why the sub numbers for this game never rise above mediocre.  Maybe not, but I think it is.

Don't worry, they added new rewards for everyone if you market for them! woot?

Curse you AquaScum!

You know you can get relic quality items from Volan zone event right ? And the Rift Items after upgrades is only 5-10% behind the Best Raid gear.

 

10 man is as easy as an expert dungeon for 10 ppl right now as well so you can do it even with pugs. That means Raid quality gear that is easily accessable.

 

And lot of casual content is not even mentioned, unless you read patchnotes (detailed ones)

 

Im suprised that people that complain that Rift is wow clone or whathever would like to make the game more in to a wow clone, when the devas clearly are trying to get away from it. Especialy in the SL expansion.

i was thinking about resubbing myself then i went to the front page of their forums and i quickly changed my mind. That game has to have the most immature vile community ive EVER seen in an mmorpg. You go to lotr online forums people are polite , same with wow , WAR , GW2 etc but yet their community on their forums is beyond trash and I think ill pass for good playing with those rejects and retards on their offical forums seriously.

Its not  nearly as bad in game, but i agree that a lot of trols are on forums. And forums are not nearly as neet community wise as it is in rp and lore driven games like lotro/ddo. I guess they call that passionate ;) Not neccesary in good way.

 

But if you find a good guild or play on server other than blightweeld you should be fine. 95% of all eliteist jerks are playing there (all major progression guilds) and majority of those forum trolls play there to.

i know when games add new low level content everyone stops leveling and just stays in the low level zones. Money well spent imo. No wait generally they get a play through and life goes on.:P

I have always prefered to see alot more content added to low level content, and areas, as it gives more veriety for players that are returning, or starting to play thru with their characters. Yet i also prefer alot slower leveling pace in a mmo, since than the time the devs have to make more/refine/test new content (open world, instanced) is much longer, and so you have a greater degree of chance to get even better content with more deversity in it. Always thought they needed to add one more arche-type in rift.

You go to lotr online forums people are polite , same with wow , WAR , GW2 etc but yet their community on their forums is beyond trash and I think ill pass for good playing with those rejects and retards on their offical forums seriously.
 

Yeah, their forums are almost as acerbic as these.  It didn't used to be that way.  Not sure what happened there.

It's better in game depending on your server, especially if you find a decent gulid.  Go to Faeblight.  It's a good server.  If you like this sort of game and don't mind a sub it's probably the best choice on the market at the moment.

Curse you AquaScum!

Never judge a game by it's forums.. ever. It's makes no sense to do so at all. Unless you are going to be spending more time on the forum than in the game it's a pretty strange way to judge it's community.

I'll second that the ingame community is nothing like that.

PS.. if you think people are polite on the WoW forums you have some pretty hefty rose tinted glasses on. All those games you listed have worse ingame communities imo, except LOTRO.
