    Default Single player instances

    I just want to put out to the developers I had no desire to get to 50 it just was not here for me. But I came back completely for the one player dungeons.

    This is a fantastic Idea and I hope it continues to expand. My hope would be eventually this play style will be represented in all mmo's . You like to raid for awesome loot go raid. You want to do 5 mans for awesome loot go to it. You want to solo here is awesome loot.

    Players should play how the want and this idea I could not applaud enough TY Trion TY

    is possible they could give nice loot, T1 grade loot atleast

    my major problem is mages will be playing solo dungeons on easy mode(massive damage and krazy heals done by that damage) compared to the rest of us normies :P

    It's not "awesome" but it's designed to help gear fresh 50's and provide some additional story for lore junkies.

    You don't think the duracell cleric build will do just as well?

    Anyways, loot wise.. i'd expect blues at best. From what i've seen of the HK solo, mobs do next to no damage.

    Im getting excited because I believe there internal research after this launches is that it will be extremely popular with the silent majority that do not like grouping. If I am right and this is the case further single player dungeons will be added creating another teir of progression for the solo peeps.

    The gear does not have to be raid quality just a little better than the first solo dungeon so you can handle the next solo dungeon just like raiding.

    Hate it or love it, this is probably the future. Raids require too much work, and more importantly cooperation, on the part of a demographic that by nature is selfish.

    Disagree with selfish? Look at the many, many posts by raiders who are angry that someone else has the same stuff they had last month. I will grant that not every single raider is completely ego-centric, but most of the posts I have read claiming to be raiders certainly are.

    As far as the work and cooperation, if you have ever done a single raid, you know what I'm talking about. In the best of guilds, just getting everyone to the dance on time is no mean feat.

    Back on topic, I like that they are doing smaller scale content. I don't like to solo things necessarily, but I do enjoy a smaller group. I also like having the option to solo if none of my close friends happen to be on. I wouldn't mind using the LFG if it had a dbag filter.

    I played the Chronicles on PTS and while the idea is awesome... many are gonna be disappointed, I think.

    Its very easy, short and limited content. The first Chronicle is only a "dungeon" in so much as it takes place in a closed area. Otherwise, the mobs, challenge and rewards are no greater than soloing a Major Rift.

    Its also very short and simple. Like literally, 2 hallways. 2 hallways.

    If this is true Rift will become basically a FPS masquerading as an MMO.

    It's not much of a jump, considering where the game is at now and the increasing movement towards tailoring the game to the instant gratification individual player.

    It could be that Trion sees that segment of the marketplace as their key demographic. Moving away frm group and PvP content makes sense from a financial standpoint - they cost more to develop, test and maintain than solo content.

    Someone said the majority of posts on a forum here are actually the minority and do not represent most people. They said the actual people are too busy playing the game.

    So if that's true, you're wrong.

    Cosmetic items and mounts drop in them.

    That's reason enough to like it.

    Mages are also the only class without a tank spec. If anyone has things easy, it's clerics, although the combination of mage pets and heals is certainly powerful for soloing.

    They dropped a plaque but I didnt see if it was one for each boss, and blues so anyone looking for higher might be disappointed.

    Anyone looking for a fun thing should be happy for a month if they add more every month.
