We are working our way to our final review of the first Rift expansion, Storm Legion. We offer our third installment of our Review in Progress series, this time focusing bugs, customer service, dungeons and more. See what you think before leaving a comment or two.
I'm continually impressed by the new dungeons in Storm Legion. This week I had a chance to play through Storm Breaker Protocol a number of times. All of these were with pick up groups and not all of them were successful. While on first glance failing to complete a dungeon might seem like a bad thing, but honestly I'm happy that the dungeons are difficult enough that the risk of failure actually exists. With the last batch of 50 experts so out geared it is nice to finally step back into a dungeon and know that if not everyone pulls their weight, you may not succeed. Storm Breaker Protocol is also the first time that we see our defiant occupy a vehicle mode for a dungeon. You fight the first two bosses in this instance in a Gundam mode and then proceed to fight the next two bosses robotic armor free. Each of the bosses is more than just a tank and spank with the last boss providing multiple tasks for the tank. I was required to cleanse myself, purge the boss, and control adds while the DPS broke crystals. I'm always pleased to be engaged rather than just spamming the boss for threat.
