    Your class list doesn't mention Bards or Riftstalkers, which were seen on one of the E3 demos where they zoomed in when the player was switching classes. Are you waiting for official confirmation?

    No, I'm just behind due to summer school kicking in. I'll add those as pending a bit later tonight.

    It was a sticky a while back. There were so many stickies they decided to consolidate them into a single post that is sticked. This is the post: http://forums.riftgame.com/showthrea...-for-Newcomers!

    It does make it harder to find, the trade off for a cleaner looking forum.

    Update

    Added the role terminology, which was already basically known. More official now.

    A role allows you to save your soul setup. You can then switch between roles. So any soul combination that you put together you can save and then switch between the roles you have saved. No information on how many roles you can save. This will be very handy later in the game.

    Added MMOGamer July 15 article.

    No real new game information but a nice take on how the developers view the game and community. Its a good one.

    Still catching up. Although there hasn't been a lot of of new feature news.

    Adding the bit about planar incursions. Nice to see this confirmed.

    "A specific rift event only grows to a certain size (this may vary depending on how they play in testing) but in addition to that planar incursions can go beyond a rift event and actually travel over the lands and destroy other areas as well as other rift types."

    From all the various dev comments there is enough evidence that the group system is going to be at least based on trinity (tank,healer,dps). Since there has been little talk about combat or skills it is unknown how far the system may stray from the base or incorporate various tweaks or new features based off of the trinity type system.

    This has been added as pending (as I can't find direct quote currently) with some notes in the group role section.
    Fixed some items.
    Expanded some information.

    A group can push the rift into a unstable state (bonus type stage) to gain the best loot. It is possible to solo a rift, but you will most likely not be able to get loot from the unstable state without some help.

    Most randomly occurring rifts are "minor" and can be completed by a small group or a single player. Larger rifts are usually triggered by players, this reduces the chance of you walking into a large group encounter.
