i'm enjoying it too... even though i only have one level 50 i feel it adds a lot to the plate.

 

as a rogue i enjoy the very versatile tactician.  its ailities are very hard to put into a master-macro (my main problem with rogues thus far in rift was that they could often be boiled down to "push your spam macro 5x then push your finisher macro")

 

i agree with the OP; it looks like it's gonna set the bar.

RIP Ribbitribbitt you are missed, kid.

erm, you cnt really doubt it lol, it already has set the bar, there isnt a single expansion for any themepark mmo that has been as good as storm legion is, in terms of what ithas added to the game in recent years. even MOP fails in comparison.

Thought about going back but to me it isn't worth it. Trions version of a bard is just piss poor. That was a big disappointment. I would play a bard over any class on any game any day. If the bard was decent I would play but the lack of having instruments as weapons and how slow they move is just sad. Maybe if it was reworked I would come back but glad you all are enjoying it.

As much as i dislike Rift and what it stands for, you cant ignore this huge exp and what there bringing to the table. Its a massive endever to say the least. Grats to Trion for putting thier cards out on the table.

Never liked Rift all that much but credit is due where it is deserved, you can not take anything from Trion.

 

The amount of content and features packed into one expansion by a company that has a game I would consider niche should make Blizzard absolutely ashamed with themselves.

Storm legion totally surpassed my expectations so far. I knew it be good but damn - it's amazing. The new souls are so much fun, the new zones, events and heck there so much that was added, how the F did they pull this off?

How they managed to pull off this expansion with it's sheer enourmous size and still be able to push out alot of major patches pre-expansion is beyond me, lovig the expansion so far..and Tempest Bay is one of the greatest citys ive step foot in on a mmorpg.

I think OP is right.

 

Its not going to convert anyone and grow the population by any significant amount, but if you like Riift you will LOVE Storm legion.  Best MMO expansion since Echoes of Faydwer.

I don't play for power sessions anymore. 1-2 hrs at a time, But I keep going back in after short breaks. This is well done. Really feels like a war zone.

It's the sad state of the genre. The next big title has as many threads discussing issues with it's business model than issues with the game itself.

It just added more of the same, and since the same was already bad...

What Storm Legion adds to Rift reminds me of what Jump to Lightspeed added to SWG. Dimensions and Hunt Rifts add another way to play the game that is completely removed from dungeons raids and pvp.

No, it added a whole new games worth of content and slapped it on top of an existing game. It seriously could have been released as a brand new and seperate MMO and it would have been viable. Your last bit..? Subjective and your lose imo.

OK so I love healing/ranged DPS on my Resto/Elemental Shaman in WoW - but I'm so sick of WoW and actually really like a lot of the things RIFT is doing -

What's a good comparible class/soul selection to both Elemental and Resto shaman from WoW?

Oh, and for the solo'ing/leveling up part I love a class that can do good DPS and self heal - preferably in melee range... I like melee when leveling and ranged/healing for dungeons/end-game.

And I hate hate hate pet classes.

I'm guessing Cleric will be my class of choice, probably Shaman for melee DPS with some sort of 2nd soul for healing...

Then a build for ranged DPS and healing... hmmm.... too bad all the elemental lightning stuff is in the Mage class.

How viable is the Chloromancer as a healer?

With the new soul (melee dps) that might be my build...

Now Playing: Destiny, WoW

Go with cleric. You won't be disappointed. best solo class can do pretty much anything.

And yes this expansion is the best expansion for any MMO in recent years. Love it.

Harbinger/Chloro from what i hear is the new indestructable levelling class.  Mage might be what he would enjoy best.

A Harbinger combination that includes the Chloromancer soul and either Pyro or Stormcaller. Pyro or Stormcaller don't have pets. A heavy Chloro is an awesome healer, a little bit into Choloro (about 8 points) can be a viable offhealer with most of it being automatic.

Shaman paired with Justicar is a good melee self healer and one of the most popular cleric solo combos in the game. Look for the Duracell 1.11 build on the official Clerics Guide forums.. it's a step by step build and it's works out pretty good.
