Rift - The new World of Warcraft?
Rift (A.K.A Rift: Planes of Telara) was released over a week ago. I haven't played it yet, but it looks pretty good. Rifts story is that the world of Telara, that is the focal point of different worlds. These worlds have invaded the world of Telara, causing rifts to open, these rifts spawn monsters and it is up to the players to close them.
You can choose between 4 different callings (classes), Warrior, Cleric, Rogue or Mage. Each one of them eventually gains access to 8 different "souls" from that class, which have trees that players can allocate points gained each level to. Soul trees have 2 levels, branches,which are the specific abilities/bonuses that the player allocates the points to, and roots, which are the soul's base abilities that are unlocked as the player allocates an amount of points into the branches.
Players may also keep up to four different soul configurations (roles), which may be activated whenever the player is not in combat, meaning a player can switch from a damage dealer to healer, or the other way around. Because the players abilities come from the points allocated in the soul trees, two roles that share no souls will literally have no abilities/bonuses in common with each other.
Tell me what you think, should I buy it or not?
