    This game could be worth a try. Can u download it before getting the beta key? Might give it a whirl in a few days time.

    Sadly no MissB, can only download the game via the launcher which is only available when the Beta starts, although I am sure a few of us will keep people informed on progress, for me I can not get into WoW at the moment, Rift has really got a hold of me, it's taken a lot of great things from other MMO's and put them in one place, for the people used to say just WoW, Rift is easy to pick up and play as they haven't tried to do anything radical in the way you play the game.

    Nice Morf! I don't mind being wrong for that :D

    Suffering Riftdrawl badly, I have been hunting down Guilds on the forums as well, we could form an OLDr one but with some playing Guardians and some playing Defiance it's harder plus the smaller numbers as well, waiting for release to see how many are active, also, I think we need to look at deciding what PVP server to play on, plus maybe a PVE server for the non PVP type players :D

    lol, same :) been doing a bit of reading up on classes, etc before the next beta... just learnt you can up to 4 roles, which you can switch between seemingly fairly at will. So you can roll a cleric, have a healing role with healing souls, a ranged dps role, a melee dps role or a melee tanky role and switch between them depending on what you're doing.

    I've been wanting to roll a cleric for healing instances but hate leveling them up when i dont have a group with me, now i can level as melee dps and switch to full on heals when i want to heal a group - much joy.

    so who wants to volunteer to get the next beta event start date/times into AEST? :D

    FYI - I never knew this!!!

    [​IMG]
    The global distribution picture for Trion Worlds' RIFT MMORPG just got a bit clearer thanks to an announcement made by the developer earlier today. Trion signed a multi-year retail deal with QVS, a renowned publisher in both Australia and New Zealand.

    Thanks to the new agreement, Kiwis and Aussies alike will be saying g'day to RIFT's dynamic content, familiar class-based gameplay, and lush graphics along with the rest of the world when the title launches in early 2011. "We are excited to join forces with QVS to bring RIFT to gamers throughout Australia and New Zealand. Working with QVS allows us to expand our commitment to deliver quality games to gamers worldwide," says Trion's David Reid.

    ALSO!:

    Be aware that this weekends Beta is a STRESS TEST of the servers.

    They WANT and WILL MAKE the servers crash!!! So you may experience lag, crashing and all kinds of things..... The joys of beta hey?

    I haven't applied for the beta key as yet, so I might be too late. Early march release date though, from what I've read this game looks awesome. I'll be giving it a try on release for sure :)
