Ofc you start with a pure dps build to get faster lvl. Then you can get the rest of the souls right away.

Your gonna have a great time - I promise you that.

@Deadalon

Just want to add that since 1.4 the additional souls can be bought easily off the trainers. I do miss the original mini-quests to collect all the different souls taking you to your first rifts, but also understands how it may have been confusing for new players.

@Ageek

I feel now is an appropriate time to point out that Massively already has a RIFT guild, the details of which can be found at the link below!

But that guild is Guardian, and it's looking like he'll end up Defiant. Finally time for a Massively Defiant guild then?

I recommend rifstalker...god they were challenging and fun, definetly something different from the standard tank gameplay...

you have to be fairly high level to see the thing in full effect tho...

I pretty much voted what I play (now Lv 47 in Iron Pine Peak) - Male Mathosian Mage, Pyromancer Elementalist (put 20ish points in Elementalist while soloing though, because a Greater Earth Elemental is needed for a Pyro), the other 40+ points in Pyromancer :)

And just have a Chloro build for pugging Healer, and Archon for pugging Support.

I should return to Rift...only made it to about lvl 30, and with the solo dungeons and AA coming, I'd like to start working towards being ready for those.

As for the polls, definitely a Female Mathosian, as a DPS Priest!

I'm going to recommend a Riftstalker/Nightblade, that is such a fun combo.

Get a role that has great AoE damage--simply because its insanely fun!! Nothing quite like explodernating a dozen or so invasion MOBs at once. Whee! :D

@Nepentheia that's why I voted Warrior Tank (oddly enough). Reaver has such insane AOE dps at low levels, nothing else can touch it until the mid 20s

Ele/Pyro is fun, but Necro/Warlock is hands down the best leveling spec for mages, especially after you get Soul Purge at ~15. It's practically impossible to kill unless you way, WAY overpull and even then you still have a fighting chance if you can keep your Charge up so you can keep spamming Soul purge and use your pet intelligently.

Another very fun leveling spec I've found is Bard/Marksman/Ranger. Put the first 10 or so points into Bard (basically until you get the run speed buff, and make sure to fill out the talent that makes Cadence heal you) and the rest into Marksman. Lots of damage and survivability there too.

I only voted for the gender. I feel like whatever else I voted for, Larry may not enjoy playing... ):
