    Default Just returned after a 6 month break.

    I quit Rift about 1-2 weeks after 1.3 came out.


    Now I'm lost in terms of builds and what to do.

    I have both a DPS gear set, and a Tank gear set. I wasn't quite raid ready when I quit, was maybe 1-3 pieces away from being geared enough to raid successfully.


    What do I do, and should I stay with tanking, or back to DPS? :S

    ATM if you wanna tank wait for 1.6... If you want to DPS, get some crafted gear/hit runes and you'll probably be geared enough to bard the downstairs of hk.

    That thread doesn't tell me which builds are the higher dps. I don't mind whether or not I have to play ranged or melee, as long as I can put out competitive numbers with others in the raid.


    Edit: Unless I'm missing something?

    I have crafted gear, t2 experts, and a few pieces from plaques totalling me at 250 hit. I probably underexaggerated myself. I have done a couple bosses in GSB and GP back in 1.2-1.3, but I'm not sure if I should just jump into a guild, get carried a couple bosses for enough gear so that I can raid HK effectively, or if I should spend my time with a GSB/GP guild first.

    So I should spend a couple weeks grabbing some gear from ros/gsb before getting back into the raiding scene?

    depends on your current gear, amount of platinum, and pvp rank

    If you have 320 hit you should be fine. If not you can buy crafted gear and r5-6+ gear works good too.

    Still not sure what build I should use. in Zyzyx's thread, the flowchart says I shouldn't be playing 51MM unless I have the HK crystal.


    Should I be playing something else? I would like to max my dps given my current gear level.

    If Zyzyx's guide seems a little daunting, you can try the level 50+ portion of mine (in my sig) but there are quite a few different builds you could be running and putting up good numbers. It's really a matter of personal preference.

    Also i would suggest finding one of those guilds that is a mob or 2 into HK and short a couple people. They can probably gear you up very quickly and get you right into the swing of things if you are a competent raider.
