So I thought I would be there waiting as the servers turned on. I look down at the clock on my desktop, 18:01... ooops.



Bugger...

It is dropping, already I'm now 1568 and 1 hour 59 minutes, so it's dropped an hours worth in 9 minutes... so maybe I'm in by half past.

Not going to get in tonight, made it to 1700 or so but still says 8 hours until login time. I'm going to try logging in tomorrow to set my character.

It took me 3 hours to get in Apparently they opened them a bit early. I don't know why I didn't think to check, I was at home

Well, it seems reasonably polished. So far much the same as other MMO's. Kill this, collect that. We'll see when we get together.

Here's me approaching one of the rifts -



I have Diamon, a healer type lvl 8 and Bartholomew a tank type, just begun.

**EDIT** For the record, I just tried to join back to check the queue and even at 11:38pm, I'm 1319th with an estimated 4hour wait.

I guess we'll see how it pans out over the next couple of days...

I've played a new Cleric on Shiv, but not a pure healer. Damn, it's aweful. With my pure healer I died just once getting to lvl 8. With this one, I die regularly. I have no heals and no offensive stuff, it's bizarre.

I'm having more fun with a rogue at the moment, which I know Khan will be rolling too, but hey, the first 6-8 levels are very quick to get a feel for something, so I can try a few I guess.

With the cleric, I picked the wrong soul for the 3rd. How do I change it? 30 gold?

A useful page to see the queue's and just how busy different servers are -

Can we set a time for a get together today? I can do pretty much any time today and tomorrow? Would be cool to do some levelling together.

We are in Covenant.

My Paladin, Void, Reaver Knight is incredibly easy to play hardly ever dies and can heal himself. Quite enjoying the game sure it is alot of questing atm, but I will get this char to 50 and pvp lots more if you pvp at the start of levels say 21 you get owned.

Yeah, the Covenant guys seem nice enough and generally pretty organised.

I've found the USP for Rift, the ease at which you can set up very different characters, within the one character. So, now I have a lvl 22 Rogue. I bought a second 'core' for 30g and unlocked all 8 'souls'. I can now swap from a melee high DPS ninja type assassin, to a ranged bard with a pet in a matter of seconds. Very clever and I think adds to the appeal of the game. It can get very dull pressing the same buttons over and over, now I can swap them around. I'm planning to buy another core (5 plat though) and have a PvP core, some range, with healing, no pet but assassin type DPS too.
