    Default Rift Prime lv50 quickstart builds

    The following specs are for lv 50 content on the Rift PRIME server.

    I may add some specs for some classes later especially if they are requested.

    Disclaimer: There might be class (balance-)changes on launch day so some specs could perform bettter or worse.

    Speaking as someone who left the game at around the same time proper raiding died in Rift, I disagree with all of your linked tank builds.
    On top of that, you seem to forget that a LOT of the souls you used won't be available when Prime launches: no tactician, no oracle, arbiter etc...

    No such thing as mage tanking, rogue/warrior healing etc. And if they take Prime seriously there won't be a Primalist either.

    But I do agree balance is something that needs to be seriously looked at, especially since "then-current" (as in: when I still played) tanking was balanced around the 61-points abilities. The soul trees back in Vanilla looked quite different indeed.

    The additional souls must be unlocked through gameplay after launch. Going off of what Trion has told us, it should be feasible to unlock the souls required for these specs once you hit 50. Primalist will not be available at launch, and it is not known if it will be unlocked later or not.

    Maybe I have a different idea about what Prime is and should be then, but I'd expect the Storm Legion souls to become available once (and not before) Storm Legion hits the Prime server(-s)...

    Isn't that the entire idea behind the "going back in time to experience Rift as it once was"-philosophy?
    We start with Vanilla content and gradually receive later content/expansions with the corresponding souls and level cap increase?

    You would be disappointed with such expectations. Prime is current Live with stripped f2p, cash shop and some other stuff like minions. Some content is time/grind gated - but it still current Rift, not the one from 2011.
    New player? Apply code TD2TGJH9WGYYLEGC2EMJ or use the link for some free stuff.

    That is already plenty to pique my interest. I'll give it a try anyway and we'll see how it goes then :-)

    The removal of pay 2 win from the cash shop is the #1 reason I am giving this a try. IF they stay true to the absence of pay 2 win on Prime, then class balance can happen over time and I will be perfectly content.

    I'm still wondering what the specs and balance is gonna be like on Rift Prime. I really wanna see how the specs compare for leveling and lv50. I can't wait.


    I'd test them on lv 50 but who knows what what they gonna do with everything... very hard to say and i dont wanna waste time

    That is the key now, isn't it? Class balance indeed doesn't need to be perfect at launch, since people will need time to level to 50 anyway. As long as we don't see situations like we had on T1 Vanilla, with rogues being hardcapped at 1.2k dps, we should be fine.

    The absence of F2P-people is the main driving force for me. A subscription model simply creates a more dedicated and serious playerbase, which is exactly what I am looking for (especially given the lack of alternative at the moment - over a year of not playing MMOs is not fun :-( )
    But then again maybe I'm just old (-school).

    Rogues were fine in chocolate, no such thing as vanilla btw. They actually were one of the first outliers to ever exist with sabdancer grossly breaking balance. There is no reason not to play rogue if the current meta sticks and there is absolutely no class rebalancing before prime rehash content.

    Plus, who is to say that you can't go 61 points in a soul? I mean wouldn't it be way better to just have 61 or bust with only 5 points to distribute to the rest at start.. A whole lot easier to rebalance as well. 61/5 vs. 51/15? I mean if they don't do this actually I would say prime will just be a complete mess as the founding devs like Kervik and others were aiming in SL to drive souls to 61 or bust so it would make balancing easier. This is the perfect time to attempt to bring the game to that sort of meta.
