Doing the 'Carlton' Dance With My Faerie!!

This had me rolling on the floor. A classic forever preserved in Rift.

What is your favorite dance?

Funny Turtle Mount Glitch

You must become one with the turtle!

So If you didn't apply a Collector's Edition key to your account the free ride is over - literally. All our nice free turtle mounts were taken away from us today.

Rift for Beginners: How to Change Souls

Resetting Souls to Allow Swapping
When you reach level 13 you can do quests in the major cities to unlock additional souls beyond your starting three. This allows you to make all new soul combinations.

In addition to gaining new souls you can also purchase new "Roles". Roles allow you to store more than one Soul Tree. This guide shows how to change the Souls in any of your Roles.

Old Racial Abilities Listed In the Game Manual.

So I was reading the manual that came with my copy of Rift and got a bit confused while reading about the racial abilities.

How far they come.

I'm sure these may have been the racials at one point. It is interesting to see how far they have come from the time the game manual went to print and the release. I just thought I'd take a picture for posterity for posterity.

Do any of you know if these racials were ever in the game? I came into the beta right at the end.

What are some of the thing you miss from beta? What over-powered abilities or specs got nerfed into the ground? What souls combinations made you feel like a god? Let me know in the comments below.

Happy Launch Day!!


Happy Launch Day everyone! I will be picking up my retail key later today and am hoping to get some really good stuff for you all.

I hope you all had as good a time during head start as I did. I'm hoping the turtle mount that mysteriously showed up in my main wasn't a mistake. (I only pre-ordered a regular edition.)

Soul Build Library - Get Your Theorycraft On!

I've got a lot of reading to catch up on!

I just wanted to make a quick post pointing to the Soul Build Library over at the Rift Junkies forums.

If you were a fan of theorycrafting sites like Elitist Jerks or Arena Junkies head on over and read all about Soul Builds for all of the callings.

Rift Sound Effects Interacting With Water. Impressive!

So I noticed some pretty cool sound work while leveling my new Rogue. If you move your camera underwater the sound effects as well as the music get muffled.

 It's a small detail but another indication of how Rift is trying to push the boundaries of what a modern MMORPG can be both visually and aurally.
