Episode 14

A big thanks first of all to the Dev Team for Rift. Who used two of my builds I made Lawbringer and Holy Fire Shaman. As presets for cleric in the beginning of the game. I had no idea until I started getting congrats on the forums. And I was like what are you guys talking about lol? I looked for the first time in this video. So I'm taking the time to say thanks live on you tube. So I bow my head to the team in appreciation.

In other news I would like to know what is you're motivation for playing Rift? Mine is to keep getting stronger preparing for 3.0. And now 2.7 arrival of the 4 new classes. It will be time for me to make new builds. I have one already in mind testing out things in the past. But that aside what is your reason for beasting across the lands of Rift?

Builds I'm Talking About Are

Lawbringer

Holy Fire Shaman

Grats to Seatin and Grinnz who also made builds added to the game

=============================================================================

Past Episodes will be below this will be a ongoing post. So I won't have to have posts everywhere.

Great video but I had to go to your channel to get it because your direct link doesn't seem to be working!!

A few thoughts in response:

1. The changes to Freemarch and even more changes to Silverwood kinda ticked me off, mostly because I had to rewrite the majority of my guide from levels 1-20.  :)

But in Silverwood, the quests are not actually streamlined at all. They removed some of the "pointer" quests and replaced them with object-based quest pick-ups or carnage quests. So almost all the original quests are still there, they are just harder to find. Worse, and this is true more-so of Silverwood, they left prerequisites in place that were never identified as prerequisites in the first place. So you can be walking by the quest-giving object and not see the marker or be able to interact with it because you are on your way to turn in its prerequisite. Unfortunately, you'll never come back by that object to know that it offers a quest. It used to be that Silverwood was by far the best designed of the two starting zones but with the pre-free-to-play changes Silverwood is actually a complete pain in the hind-quarters while Freemarch was at least streamlined effectively. What made me upset about the changes, beyond how much of my time was wasted in guide rewrites, was that if I was wasting a bunch of time - imagine how much time the developers were wasting!! I am one of the biggest RIFT fans around but there are problems that have existed since launch in 2011 that have still not been addressed. Why on earth did Trion waste time and energy doing a sloppy job of revamping level 10 zones in order to make them look more like level 50 zones rather than fixing issues players have had for two years??

2. Your complaint about Conquest echoes a problem I've seen with the game since the beginning. Trion seems to have a severe lack of focus and follow-through. How many great ideas and features have been plugged into the game and then either dropped altogether (timed world events, ancient wardstones) or never developed into anything beyond where they started (heroic solo story archs?)

3. I really have no problem with macros. The vast majority of people who use them in RIFT are very likely gimping themselves. Perhaps if I were leading 10 man raids I would have a problem with them because of the limited dps they would create. Every build video I have ever done has ended up with people commenting asking for macros. In the case of at least two of my builds, they function on rotations that would cause macro usage to be either ineffective or impossible. My melee rogue, for example, does extreme single target damage but utilizes primarily instant cast abilities with no cool-down. But even with that build, which has a very easy rotation, some people would much rather throw a couple of abilities into a macro and call it a day. On the flip side, the small amount of tanking I've done which tends to utilize priorities more than rotations seems to be a bit macro dependent and I'm totally fine with that. If a player is utilizing whatever he needs in order to be as effective as he can, that's all his team can ask for.

 

edit for speling and me also use bad grammer.

Hmm I fixed the link

As far as Trion it seems like when the team shrank. It got more frazzled on details and rushed more. That's unfortunate because they still do a good job. But it's like baseball with them. You look for the homerun and keep getting singles lol.

Again a great episode.

Since i can't seem to get into Rift (i wish i could), i'm always interested in topics such as "what to do when you don't know what to do", "guide to have fun in Rift" or as well your latest "get that epic feeling again". I think Rift is still the "best game many can't get into" and -among all site operators, bloggers, etc. and even Trion themselves-  currently you are doing best job to get people interested in what's going on and keep them on top of things happening about it.

You may not remember, but i was one of the first guys commenting on your clips back then and i looked forward to any new one since then. So, being an attentive viewer, i  think that over time you grew into it and watching especially your latest clips, you really seem to have gained confidence in the stuff you do there and it shows in every good way.

As i said in another post, too bad all this is sort of wasted on this forum , as it should at least be featured on the main page. They feature nonsense like "unknown guy re-visites crappy game" all the time. MMORPG'in needs more dedicated guys, more sense of community and especially guys with the guts to talk about the cons and put offs of a game.

It would be great to one day see you talking into a cam (like many youtubers do) instead of just that small pic in the lower left. Would give the whole thing a more personal and "pro" touch, but that's just my opinion.

PS. another point: You keep your viewers watching at your char standing at one spot firing at a rock for like 12 minutes. At least add some angles next time ;)
