Can the Riftblade teleport like the riftstalker or is that just a cool name they made for it/

@EspadaPantera no he can't. The Riftblade utilizes magic attacks, like Fire and Lightning Javelins at range and such. Fun class, nonetheless but no teleporting ;)

@eLdritchZ

Incorrect. The Riftblade CAN teleport. It is fairly high up in the Soul tree but it is there.

The Riftblade, especially when combined with the Champion Soul, plays a whole lot like a Herald of Xotli from Age of Conan but with plate armor instead of cloth. Combination of melee and magical ranged attacks. It is a REALLY fun class.

@esloan yeah you are right... I forgot that higher up teleport... I guess I was more answering the "Can the Riftblade teleport like the riftstalker" part, which he can't ;)

Great fun in the last beta, can't wait to start up a Necro in the next. With the zone-wide events coming, I'll need the undead support :)

To tell the truth I'm literally dieing to get this game but no beta access has come my way even with two beta keys which are supposed to 'heighten my chances at being chosen.' Did I go wrong somewhere? Also, please inform of any VIP BETA key events on any websites... PLEASE!

@EspadaPantera If you are really desperate just buy a key on Ebay.

Riftblade - Less 'rifty', but still has a sort of teleport. More of a 'magic knight' from Final Fantasy :), with elemental sword attacks (Air, fire, etc), where the Riftstalker is more about a 'rift'(shiny silver) theme and fast teleporting.

Marksman - More kitey then Hunter. Distance physical DPS. Not best at soloing, unless we can sticky mobs. Not sure if we can do that. Still badass.

Necromancer - Pet class. Parts of Warlock and Elementalist and Pyromancer going on.

Warden - Water dedicated healer and purifier. That sort of deal.

(ALL of these are observations ranging from either not playing the class, up to seeing the soul trees and playing the class)

Only 8 more soul reveals left :), not counting PvP souls, etc.

Out of all the MMO betas I have played this MMO is easily the most fun. Just playing in Beta 2 convinced me to buy the game period. Might I like the game for a long time? Not sure yet, but I like what I see.

@Sharuk, I'm that desperate but not that bothered to wait for the key to come or to give my money for something that could come my way for free.

@ Sharuk just wondering, have you played in the beta? If you have then didi you play with a beta key or a VIP BETA key and did you buy it of ebay?
