Rift has been officially free to play for a couple of weeks now. We've been playing the game as a F2P-er and have some first impressions to offer up about our time in Rift. See what we think and then leave your thoughts in the comments.

What makes Rift’s F2P conversion so amazingly special is the fact that servers are once again packed. Granted, there are fewer servers but that’s a good thing as the populations are consolidated making PvP better, raiding better, rifting better and more.

I have a few rules of thumb when it comes to accepting f2p. Rift on the outer layer fits for f2p because of my rule that it is ok for a game to be f2p if it's prime is passed.

F2p is good for rift too because more people will actually download and check the game out. If they had to sub, well then not many people would bother.

This leads into ine of my other rules in that f2p is ok if the game just isnt good enough to merit a sub. In this case that is also true. I know thats subjective but for the most part its true. Rift is after all a less fluid wow clone with more realistic graphics that become exhausting to look at after a few days.

I have had a sub in Rift since launch, and I still have a patron pass. Rift is my #1 themepark game by far, the class system is just pure genius.

I have to agree with F2P conversion, its been a blast for me as a subscriber.

Also a note to new or returning players - by all means level up to 48 so you can check out Storm Legion, some amazing events there - Volan encounter is worth experiencing first hand, its epic.

Agreed, though I don't do subscriptions, I'm loving it. I am to the point where I wouldn't mind throwing a bit of money to help if I had some though.

I really like the F2P conversion. Still subbed and going to stay that way for a while. I'm enjoying playing the game with a lot of people once again.

Also do note that every item from the shop that's purchaseable in-game can be bought through the cash-shop (so to speak) for in-game currency as well. No need even to look for the right vendor.

I haven't played the game since launch, but a few friends decided to pick it up once it went F2P so I redownloaded it to check it out.

I'm pretty impressed with the huge amount of changes made to the game from the last time I played (River of Souls). My once level-capped mage is a lot of fun to play and the mentoring system is extremely useful for getting new players into the game. I'm looking forward to dungeon crawling with my lower level friends and getting to re-live the early days of the game while preparing them for the new content that none of us have seen.

Good job Trion.

Great f2p model but as much as i want to like rift, it's incredibly dull and uninspired zones bores me to tears and i just log off after completing bunch of quests. I mean going through stonefield then that canyon like zone and then scarlet gorge(?) made me just stop playing. Only decent zone in the game so far has been freemarch for me. Checked the guardian side too. Dungeon queues not popping for hours didn't help either. But kudos for being level-headed devs and making a great f2p model.

it's still the best themepark out there IMHO; not bad for a dev company's first attempt :)

as soon as they put a new starting zone in there for both factions i'll pop back in with my wallet open (i've done each of the current ones 4x and if i start again i want to start a brand new character)

First of all you probably know that's never going to happen. Secondly you can level through instant adventures and pvp past the starting zone (assuming you mean Freemarch/Silverwood) really fast now.

The pure starting zone (mathosia and the defiant one) is reduced to basically nothing and my fastest time there is 12 minutes (defiant zone) :P

I'm still playing Rift.  I think it's been 4 months now.  I refuse to look at time played because I know I will be embarrassed at how many hours I've played.


I'm still paying a sub.  That could change in the future, but at least for now I'm enjoying the bonuses.  The Rift store is the best f2p store I have seen.  I bought more bank space, more bag space, more wardrobe slots, some clothing, and a mount for a very reasonable price, saving me 1k of in game plat.  Some of that was purchased with money Trion gave me when the game converted to f2p but I dropped $50 into game credits rationalizing it's how much I would pay if I were to buy a full fledged expansion. 


I still have maybe half of those credits left.  I'll probably use them to buy trade skill expansions so I won't have to keep alt hopping.  It will also give me something to do.


One of the other nice features of the f2p system is the loyalty system.  When the game converted I got some freebies like an extra dimension slot which is something I was really wanting, a free dimension, anew mount, bonuses to xp, coin, rep, etc. 


The server I am playing on is very healthy too.  It's nice seeing more people :)


Yup, if you are going to convert to a f2p, this is without a doubt the best conversion I have seen to date.

(a short off: LotRO's f2p wasn't bad at all, especially back at the time and for previous subscribers... in fact with a 1month sub it's still a very decent model)


There was a thread when Rift switched, I wrote in there my very first impressions, and it's pretty much the same after the weeks: it's an awesome model.

I liked when in the announcement they stabbed a quick one in TOR (with not restricting anything and not jacking up the xp curve :) ), and they're holding up to it. Actually they did the exact opposite approach as EAware, and I think it will serve them better on the long run.

I mean, both games have a pretty big gap between free and subscribing players. TOR made it in a negative way (subs have the former game, free ones are restricted), Rift did the opposite, free players have the former game, and patrons receive extras like the boosted <everything> (xp, gold, reputation, etc), daily / weekly gifts, and the instant mail / bank / ah (which alone is a huge convenience boost, at least for a hoarder like myself)

Add to that the REX option, where both free and patron players can further advance the veteran status, and free ones can get store currency with in-game currency - and you get a very friendly f2p model. No wonder that maybe it was the smoothest f2p transition so far, there were almost no bashing on the web :) (probably the gear-in-the-box issue was the only one, calling it pay2win, but even that isn't affecting the game much)

Well, I guess we'll find out if F2P can work without having any actual pay wall barriers to game play.

I can not remember winning or losing a single debate on the internet.

I started playing again, just dinged to 40 last night on my first defiant character. I like the way they made it so that both Guardian and defiant players can play together and even be in the same guild. I decided to sub to it because the changes they made since I last played at release is just amazing. Well done Trion.
