Voiced by the same person who does Galadriel in LotRO, FYI.

@Saker
Rift has some seriously strange names sometimes.

You say there was no sign that she worshiped Regulos before the fall of Port Scion, but there is a tiny hint of one - in Aedraxis' diaries, he references returning to the his "lovely Alsbeth" after the battle in Gloamwood, during the Mathosian civil war. Nothing you can sink your teeth into, of course, but it does make you wonder....

Ah, I forgot!

There is also a quest in Meridian, one of the Saga quests, where Asha shows you a scene in which a younger Asha confronts Alsbeth, accusing her of getting Asha expelled. I believe Alsbeth's response was something along the lines of "So? There's only room for one of us here."

How about a story about how support login/pw's are being sent unsecured and thousands of people have been hacked?

You win 5 Internets for a Nick Cave reference.

Only part that is intresting about RIFT atm... Will it slump faster than AOC and WAR ? Considering it didn't rize as high ... I still predict it going down even faster.

I have to agree that for some reason Rifts accounts have been hacked way too much and the game has been invaded by gold sellers more than most.

I am not a big fan of the game itself but this will just add a few more nails.

Seems like a lot less gold-sellers to me - I'm on Steampike EU and I get maybe one gold-spam /tell per day (I'm playing about 6 hours per day), no gold spam in my in-game mail, and while I know there's much more gold-spam on public channels I tend to have them on another tab that I don't look at unless I'm forming a group for a dungeon - but when I've switched to that tab the gold-spam is maybe every 15mins on the L1-9 channel.

When I played WoW on an EU server it was just after BC launched and I was getting about 3 gold-spam /tells per hour, my mailbox was absolutely infested with gold-spam every day when I logged in, up to a dozen mails per day at the worst point from at least 3-4 diff companies (Peons4Hire were the worst back then), and public channels were almost unusable because of multi-line chat spam from gold-sellers.

So while I'd rather see no gold-spam at all (like CoH and GW have no gold-spam - at least I've never had any there), I don't think Trion are doing too bad at cracking down on it considering how bad WoW was.

I'm sorry, I couldn't hear anything you said over her hips.

Never played Aion and just because another game is worse than it does not change the fact that it is not as good as others.

What they are doing about it after the fact like everything else in the game does not change anything now.

The game has bad reviews for a reason, the game came light period. It is like your new car company telling you "yeah we know it does not have AC or power locks and windows but we are working on adding that soon".
The lore is not interesting to me so it has to stand on its game play and features but it limps too much for me.

Go learn what trolling is before you talk smack to people.

There's definitely a Nick Cave fan at Trion because the other day in RIFT I looted a pair of chain/cleric gloves called "Red Right Hand" - amusingly when you examine them there's an added quote on the item: "Red left hand also included."
