I love the smell of Rift in the morning... Smells like... new content.

Gotta say I'm tempted to resub. I only stopped cause my friends weren't playing it anymore. I think that it's come a long way since release.

@Joshinu Now would be a good time. They brought back the $99 for a year promo.

I think you get a free month too. I didn't see it say a free month anywhere but my account says I have 395 days left, and I'm pretty sure a year is only 365.

@Joshinu

Also if you care at all about event items and such, right now the Bead currency you can get from various Carnival stuff (pinatas, dailies, and just doing rifts in general) can be traded in for past event currencies. So you can get items from past events among the current event items.

@jimr9999us HK is gorgeous, but getting into it comes with its own albatross of course. For instance, raiding 3 - 4 times a week in order to get the gear and teamplay experience to get into HK straight up burned me out, (I'm a healer and healers are kind of essential) so I'm taking a hiatus from the game and playing LotRO and beta-ing TERA for the interim.

HK is pretty though, and the fights are fun and interesting.

Its amazeing how much better the new content in RIFT looks in comparison to when it realsed. The graphics where decent at launch now their top knotch. Hammerknell looked amazing but Infernal Dawn looks even better. I think they have much better art now to. Green Scale was decent but the dragons since have looked far far better.

Hell the Akilious fight was so good WOW copied and pasted it to the Deathwing fight in their game.

@avaloner TRION's also been consistently tweaking their game engine for better and better looks and performance as well.

For instance their water graphics:

My problem is that I'll just be past one year and already 4 dragons and Alsbeth (or what ever her name is) will have already been killed. By this time next year All 6 dragons will be dead at this rate! And then what? I could be wrong, but there's no big enemies waiting in the wings according to any lore I've read

@Daeths Dont forget your only killing their avatars not the real dragons. The real dragons exsist on their specific plain so you realy have not killed the real dragon (or whatever they will be in their real form). I do think it was a shame that Alsbeth died so soon, but who knows they might be like WOW and forever being back dead charaters.

@avaloner Or take the fight to the Planes and just have an expansion/major content patch per Plane. XD

There are time traveling, parallel dimensions and dont forget that there are still the planar planes ;) Maybe we will strike back and invade the planes and fight on the enemy territory :D

The lore is new and 100% theirs, so the have every freedom to add new enemies ... ^^

In a universe with time travel, does it matter when someone dies? Sounds like Regulos just needs to take a few lessons from SkyNet.

Very nice art, but I'm not a raider...so this isn't applicable to me in any way.

Don't be too sure. Three of the other raids have mini two-man versions of the raids to give non-raiders a chance to see some of the raid content. Greenscale is one of the bosses you can fight.
