    Default Barber Shops in 1.9?! Link inside

    http://massively.joystiq.com/2012/06...on-and-beyond/

    Yes, barber shops are coming to Telara. While Trion admits that they could have held the feature back, it was decided that barber shops were a cool feature that is more easily implemented than other features. One of the things we were told is that features that take a lot time, resources, or need new technology developed are seen more as expansion features than patch features. Think about that for a moment: RIFT players have gotten an appearance tab, fishing, world PvP dailies and rifts, and three-faction PvP just in monthly updates, while other games tend to save this sort of thing for expansions.
    I'm hoping the phrasing isn't wrong and it is coming out a little later this month. Big news for everyone!

    Did anyone else read this and say,

    "FINALLY!"

    ?

    I know I certainly did.

    If anyone has any questions about my original post, the answer is "Yes". Massively apparently attended an event with Trion either today or yesterday and dug up the information. It appears barber shops will be here in 1.9

    I find it strange that they would implement without testing - i will be the happiest person if it goes in 1.9 though
    I'm very important. I have many leather-bound books and my apartment smells of rich mahogany.

    1.9 still has at least two weeks for going live, three if they pushed it back one week like they did 1.8

    Finally indeed! Why on earth would they even consider holding back on their most-requested feature that they said many months ago was being implemented? Let's hope this is for real. I'm going to really hate being disappointed again (as many of us are when character re-customization is a no-show each patch).

    Now, can we please get rid of the greasy hair look while we are at it? It's nauseating.

    The cat's out of the bag!

    Coming in RIFT 1.9 - the latest in Massive Dynamic Content, you've asked for it and you've got it:



    As if Mentoring, more Instant Adventure, Summerfest, Primeval Feast (a 10-man Sliver), oh - and Conquest, aren't enough... we're also in the process of tripling the size of Telara, and that means brand new dungeons, raids, zone events, including new stuff like Dimensions, Rift Hunts, Capes, and probably a bunch of other stuff I'm forgetting from Storm Legion!

    Thanks for letting us have so much fun

    And before you ask - yes, they're Barber-Surgeons, hahaha.

    Thanks for confirming Elrar!

    Oh, and if anyone is interested in the real-life history of barber's, look it up. They were the surgeons before there was a surgeon profession invented. ;) They didn't just cut hair. Makes perfect sense!

    I thought the tripling in size was in the expansion pack. Although 1.9 still looks pretty big.

    I find myself very curious as to the economics of Rift. Either you guys have a lot more players than I have been estimating, or your costs of running the game are WAY lower than I'd expected, or your programmers are drastically underpaid, or everyone else doing MMOs has profit margins in the 80%+ range.
    You can play WoW in any MMO. You don't have to play WoW in RIFT. Oh, and no, RIFT is not a WoW clone. Not having fun any more? Learn to play, noob! I don't speak for Riftui, but I moderate stuff there. Just came back? Welcome back! Here's what's changed. (Updated for 2.5!)
