  • Nightmare Tide - Overall an Amazing Expansion

    Despite the one minor hiccup I experienced getting from level 64 to 65, I was thoroughly enjoying myself. Then I began what I call the "endgame experience." RIFT has always had a lot to do at max level. The artifacts have always been a favorite of mine, as they give me a reason to go out and explore this huge world. There's probably thousands of artifacts out there for you to find. It's almost a bit daunting actually. Thank the lord for minions, who have made this a bit simpler.

  • Nightmare Tide - Bro, Do You Even Rift?

    Just before writing this article, I finally hit level 65 in RIFT: Nightmare Tide, and I couldn't be happier to get that whole leveling thing out of the way. From level 60 to 64, my leveling experience with Nightmare Tide had been extremely positive. Things were moving quickly, but not so quickly as to undermine the achievement of gaining a level. Quests were fun and engaging, so much so that I think a lot of them are going to stick with me for quite some time.
