    I politely asked 3 times in chat, once a day, how the game was different from WoW. Except for one person (who, coincidentally, actually could type correctly) I got typical fanboy answers like "It just is" and "The PVP takes more skill than WoW". One Guy though informed me that at end level there was going to be a large emphasis on world PVP objectives, something which Blizzard has neglected to do with WoW, for the most part.
    I'd say the Soul system is where it's most different.

    The thing I love about Rift is that it is like World of Warcraft. I love World of Warcraft and I think it's a great MMO, but at the moment I'm bored of it. What better thing to do then begin playing an MMO that is similar to WoW, but with different content, raids, instances, classes, skills, etc.

    Ywa, i think RIFT is WoW, but with a Great Look, Unique Talent System/ Character Custimazation, and world/player friendly Events. You can be Hardcore when you want, or laid back casual and still get some progression in the game. Play how you want. :buddy:

    Yea. I might preorder it but I want to play the beta beforehand. I'm very excited! I was going to use the money towards Dragon Age 2 but I think that will have to wait now.

    Btw, I'm also wondering when the next beta is.

    I've never really been that interested in PvP, but there's no reason why i can't try it.
    What classes do people recommend?

    There are 4 classes. In each 9 Souls ( 1 pvp that you can buy so dont say im incorrect) IT all comes to your play style. Watch some videos on the classes and Souls and just wing it, in RIFT you can play how you want.

    You'll get an email just before the beta starts, you accept this beta's EULA and whatnot, gives a download link and voila.

    I'm compleatly in love with the blade dancer, its a light-armoured DPS that stands toe-to-toe with plate, You can see my pvp vid on it here, should give you an idea what it plays like

    Anyone know what class/soul (or the one specifically that has the music-playing) the person in this video is?


    The whole music/guitar thing is appealing it to me. It reminds me of the Warden from Lord of the Rings online.

    Edited:

    I think it's Bard.

    Edited:

    Oh wow, I'm stupid. It says right at the beginning of the video.

    That reminds me, the general player really sucks at pvp. I queued with 2 of my mates and we wrecked the BG with eachother, we forced our team mates to guard the flag and make it a true king of the hill battle.

    No, if you apply a VIP Beta key, you WILL get in. So don't worry. You should get an e-mail soon saying that you've gotten in.

    ... so? I don't see how having a level 85 in World of Warcraft prevents you from as I would put it 'broadening your horizons'.

    It's the same game, but for one I already have the game and all the expansions purchased, as well as a decently geared out max level character.

    Oh hey, you're one of those people that don't pay any attention to the story or the world at all and just mindlessly grind and do dungeons/raids.

    Rift's gameplay is very similar to WoW, yes.
    But I personally also read the quest text and find out as much about the world as possible.
    Not to mention expore new lands, do interesting new dungeons or raids, etc.
    That's a very strong part of Rift because it's completely new and free for exploration.

    If you really think Rift and World of Warcraft are the "same game", then why wouldn't you simply imagine it as a large expansion that just got released for World of Warcraft that adds a ton of new classes, a ton of new instances, raids, quests, leveling zones, spells, mounts, armor, items, better graphics, etc.?

    I don't see why you people like to sit back and say "omg lol its jut like wow y play it?"

    You can compare every MMO on the market to another.
