Played the early start + 30 days ... pretty fun game but dropped ... may reconsider my sub; 1.2 has a bunch of stuff I wanted to see in the game

This has been the way of the devs since the start for me. So many things I wanted to see came not just within the first months, but within the first weeks, and they seem to genuinely care about what people want to see - while keeping in mind the way these things would affect the overall picture. I'm staying with this game not only because it's so damned fun, but because I believe in its developers, who continue to impress me regularly.

Awesome. Now I have to go buy a copy of Rift and give it a shot.

Major kudos for doing in one month what WoW has failed to over 6 years...

Not sure what you mean by this. What have they done that WoW has failed to do? Have under 6 million subscriptions?

Probably the Dungeon Finder.

@j1083 If you're referring to the dungeon finder, then Rift sure is lucky that all they have to do is copy/paste from WoW. Even their 7-times-a-week rather than once daily rewards is ripped straight from a recent WoW update.

@Jaimie

If you want to start talking about copy/paste problems, then WoW isn't the most stellar example of innovation. We just need to accept that all games copy each other. What matters is how much fun we are having.

@Oskari WoW has had a dungeon finder for a while...I`m honestly confused what he means. Maybe the cosmetic system? Other games do have that, but wow isn`t one of them.

@yeppers Appearance tab maybe? Regardless Trion is doing an amazing job with these patches. Kudos to them.

@Oskari There are people who still don't know that WoW copied Everquest.

Boo at snares having DR : (

Snares are so necessary for high ping baddies like myself in PvP. Sticking on a target with even a slight movement speed increase is going to be impossible with them being immune to snares 50% of the time.

8 seconds for snare one to wear off, 4 seconds b/c of DR on next one, so 12 seconds gone, and now they have 12 seconds of freedom before another snare will apply properly.

Anyway, hopefully they realize within the next couple months that snares are kind of necessary for melee due to latency issues and shouldn't be on such heavy DR. It's mainly clerics and tanks that are going to be a problem. If you can't snare a tank you can't get behind him to try and get past his block (though you still dodge from behind...), and clerics just run right out of your range and insta heal themselves. Mages could use the snare DR, so could ranged rogues, but not clerics and tanks.

@Averice and by high ping I mean 130 ms... so not that high, but it feels like the distance you can hit targets is smaller than it should be.

Of all the changes, the one I like to point out is that now you can set auctions by unit price. That'll make auctioning less painful; no need for me to use a calculator. :)

I also have free trials to give out if anyone wants to give this game a go. All my other friends and guildmates have either played on other free weekends or have already bought it, so my URL is useless to me. Go nuts!

Since Trion has decided to add in a gearscore with the LFD tool and is basically forcing everyone who uses it into their narrow version of what each "class" should be, I'm done with this game.
