    Default New Rift Event is a SuperMassive FAIL

    I'm getting 4 shells per rift at 50, whether in IPP, Shimmersand, or Stillmoor. It would take 19 rifts to finish all the dailies once. Dear Trion, I work full-time and don't want to spend my entire time in a day that I have to play Rift just grinding out 19 f'ing rifts. Thanks! Retool this asap kkboss?

    Close rifts in shimmersand, wait for the invasion of earth or fire to start and then you are set. Just get to one of the wardstones under attack and defend it till you have farmed enough shells.

    All I read was QQ, I don't want to spend time killing rifts to complete quests I gather, QQ.

    Most of us work full time, I have no complaints. Go back to WoW if you don't like it, simple.

    You don't have to complete them every day either. You could just do one or two. Obviously it would be nice to do them all every day, but if your schedule doesn't allow it then you adjust. It's part of the price you pay for not having to rely on others to feed, clothe and house you.
    If you want to get healed in warfronts, follow the Covenant of Healing:
    1. Stay near your team. Healing spells have a 35m range and you're not the only one who needs healing.
    2. Stay in sight.
    3. Protect your healers.
    4. Be respectful. Telling people they suck will not make them better players or want to help you more.

    This.
    OP, you realise there's about 3 billions dailies in Rift?
    Were you completing each of them before they added those new ones?

    Our shard has been creating ad hoc SS rift farm groups whenever someone notices a whole bunch spawned. Also, its the actual earth and fire invasions that will make you get all the shells -- not rifts. A bajillion invaders will attack each wardstone. Deal with one invasion and you've got your 80 for the day (or 70 because the noob quest gives 10).

    They're calling it a "prelude" but what it really is, is just Phase 1 of the Event just like the River of Souls Event.

    Yeah, but the phase one in the new event should way different, from what the podcasts say anyway.

    Which would you prefer--

    A) No new events at all
    B) An event that is not overly absolutely amazing that just gives you something new-ish to do and gives you a bit of rewards for doing it?

    MAKE UP YOUR MIND.

    Christ I hate whiners.

    This thread is a SuperMassive Fail imo...

    You can get the 1st 10 shells from doing that basic quest in your cap city, then just head out and either close rifts in Shimmersands or wait for an invasion, since those guys drop these too. Or should maybe Trion just email you free phat lootz every day just for you giving them the honor of your presence?

    Having more solo-able content for us 50's is always good, and changes in the game world, even minor are quite interesting. Being part of like 500 people closing invasions is fun. Once you hit such crazy populations in a zone, the mobs are buffed to the point where you need to zerg across the land, and that's actually kind of amusing.

    I don't know why death rifts started opening in shimmersand all of a sudden though.

    Don't agree - they don't want you to get all the dailies done in 2 - 4 rifts. Its balanced perfect now and the rifts are fun, so I don't even notice the #'s.

    Later.

    PS: And to call something a SuperMassive FAIL that is so minor and bonus content that you didn't even know you were getting 5 days ago is just SuperMassive QQ'ing!

    lol
    Dear rift
    I dont want to spend rift time rifting in the rifting area because I dont like rifting as much as I like not rifting in the game Rift.
    Love,
    Cinos
